one from each season in order

anonymous asked:

Airmom, what does each sign represent while in their season? Everyone is saying that cancer season will help us to reevaluate our feelings and bring hidden feelings to the surface, for example. Thank you!

I took longer than I wanted to because I kept taking breaks dnwakjfnkqefne, but here you go!

Aries season: be impulsive if you want, dare yourself to do things, beginnings, let go of stopping yourself from things, let go of your inner-child

Taurus season: time to be stable and recover from Aries season, value everything you have (even the things you own), spend less time buying things, take a rest, the results of Aries will be shown, (Taurus in your chart shows where you should focus on in order to see results in your life)

Gemini season: time to balance your sides, whether it’d be your good side or your bad side, time to learn and to relate, find possibilities, where your Gemini is, is where you’re most likely to adapt to, it’s where you create the possibilities

Cancer season: time to reflect and let go, to protect everything that’s dear to you, a time to feel vulnerable and let go of the feelings you’ve tried avoiding, find your inner peace

Leo season: a time to create, project confidence where Leo rules, look for ways to create and build, find joy in everything, go towards life with an enthusiastic smile

Virgo season: time to analyze and be more critical, time to edit, fix, re-view, look at your responsibilities (the house Virgo is ruled), pause and think

Libra season: time to find balance in relationships, find harmony in everything in order to maintain harmony, become more involved with your friends or anyone you have a bond with, don’t hide yourself behind technology, see the pros and cons in everything, a time to create stronger bonds

Scorpio season: time to feel or experience transform in the house Scorpio rules, look at the meanings, a time to be more conscious of the deeper and meaningful things in life

Sagittarius season: a time to naturally visualize future possibilities, realizing that time is running, and that days are just passing by, a feeling and sense of survival

Capricorn season: time where you may try to build a wall for protection from being vulnerable and keeping in touch with environment, where we may have to give respect of each others privacy in order to recover from the year, time to learn and to grow, find boundaries

Aquarius season: where Aquarius rules is where we want to strong attack and break through barriers that limit creative expression, a strong sense of action, be different, be more aware of your friend group, make new ones, predict the future, find mysteries and solve them

Pisces season: may feel alienated, commit to your life to a dream, fantasy, idea, or illusion, don’t be afraid to daydream, embrace chaos

You know, what’s interesting to me? I keep noticing a recurring theme within Emma and H00k’s relationship across the last couple of episodes - Emma wants there to be no walls between them. She wants a candid, raw, completely open relationship where they share everything and there are no secrets. 

“It’s just you and me. No walls. No secrets.”

“You come to me, H00k! And you lean on me and you trust me. We have to stop hiding things from each other. […] That is what I agreed to marry, that is what I thought we were together.” 

Even when H00k tries to be honest with Emma, there’s always something lurking in the woodwork to come out from his past and his natural instinct is to withhold the truth from her. He lied to her for the entirety of 6x12 (I know some will justify it by saying he was doing it to help David, which is fair enough, but the fact remains that he lied to Emma to do that). Even though we heard him show remorse for what he’d done to David’s father and even though he repeatedly said he was going to tell Emma the truth and he even tried to tell her, in the end he continued to hide it from Emma. He was actually going to burn his memories and we can assume never tell her the truth about it. And this isn’t the only time there’s been secrets between them. Throughout their relationship there’s been a high level of secrecy, even if they claim to be doing it out of love (which let’s be honest, everyone can excuse most of their lies with, but it doesn’t make it any less wrong). In season 5 their plot was pretty much entirely rooted in secrecy. Emma used her dark magic, tainted everyone’s memories and lied to H00k all to keep the secret from him that he was a Dark One. Earlier in the season H00k lied to Emma about getting rid of the shears (even though he did do the right thing and come clean in the end). There are probably more examples of these kinds of secrets, but none I can think of off the top of my head. Regardless, as hard as Emma and H00k try (and I’ll give it to them, they really do try) they just can’t seem to maintain an open and honest relationship with one another. Snow herself even criticized Emma’s relationship with H00k when she said: 

“Look, your father and I might not be perfect, but we don’t keep secrets from each other.” 

But guess what? Emma already has exactly what she wants - what she needs - a relationship without secrets, a person she can be completely honest with and who will do the same in return. It’s not H00k, it’s Regina

It’s canon that Emma and Regina know each other, a basis upon which a truly honest relationship is formed. To be completely open with each other you have to know each other inside and out and understand each other’s inner workings. 

“Emma, listen to me. I know you. The good you is still in there.”

I know her. I believe her. 

Look, I know you, Emma. It took a long time but I really know you

Emma, I know you. You will fight it. 

I know you, Emma. You fight when it matters. (x) (x)

And because they know each other so well, they can’t lie to each other, even if they wanted to. 

“You can lie to your parents, you can lie to yourself, but you can’t lie to me.” 

“With you Regina, I can always tell when you’re lying.” (x)

There’s a sense of unspoken communication and understanding between Regina and Emma which means they instinctively seem to pick up on each other’s feelings, vulnerabilities and lies, which this post clearly demonstrates. Here we see Regina seeing straight past Emma’s mask and proving the point I already made that no matter how hard they try they can’t lie to each other. 

And what’s even more important is that Emma and Regina’s relationship has developed to a point whereby they don’t even try to hide the truth from each other anymore. In season 6, in particular, I’ve noticed a clear pattern whereby Regina and Emma confide in each other all the time about their anxieties or problems rather than hiding them from each other (x). And that is just one example. 

Going back to season 5 when Emma was the Dark One, there was a level of trust that Emma placed in Regina that she didn’t in anyone else which Emma proved when Regina is the one she entrusted the dagger to out of everyone in her family, including H00k. Regina also shared her most painful and private memory - Daniel’s death - with Emma in order to help her. In 5x08 Regina is the one that picked up on Emma’s struggle with the darkness, she called her out on it, encouraged her to knock down all the walls she was hiding behind. In that same episode in Storybrooke Emma confided in Regina about her anxieties over Liam (H00k’s brother) and his opinion about her. And 5x22 is a perfect example of just how much the walls between Emma and Regina have completely dropped (x). Not only did Regina confide in Emma completely, even admitting that the darkness was still alluring to her and how she struggled with it and Emma openly accepted Regina and told her, “I believe in you.” 

Skipping forward to season 6, this aspect of Regina and Emma’s relationship has continued to develop. In 6x04 Regina confided in Emma about what they needed to do to kill The Evil Queen and trusted Emma above everyone else with the secret that she had to die in order to do that (x). In 6x05 Emma told Regina about her visions of her death and the truth about the possibility of Regina being the one under the hood, even though she clearly didn’t want to because she knew it would offend and upset Regina. Later on when Emma went to Regina’s vault, there was an honesty between them as Regina said she was trying to save Emma’s life and Emma admitted she was worried. In 6x08, Regina shared her plan on how she wanted to get rid of the Evil Queen with no one but Emma. And it was a perfect example of showing just how open and honest their relationship has become, particularly in regards to their roles as mother’s to Henry (x). Emma told Regina that the only thing that was giving her comfort regarding her impending death was knowing Henry would have Regina, when they were trapped in the mirror realm Regina admitted she was afraid to raise Henry alone and later on in Storybrooke Regina and Emma openly spoke about their emotions regarding their son since he was all grown up. In 6x11 Regina didn’t even attempt to hide her turmoil over Robin and also admitted how the world would be better without her. I could continue listing these kinds of scenes/moments between Emma and Regina, but I think I’ve made my point. 

When Emma or Regina are in trouble, they’re in a dilemma, they’re upset, anxious or unsure, they confide in one another and turn to one another for help. They trust that they will always have each other’s backs and will help each other in any way they can. They don’t feel the need to hide the truth from one another to protect each other’s feelings, because they both know that they’re strong. Emma believes in Regina and Regina believes in Emma. Whatever the issue is, they always have faith they can work it out together. With Regina and Emma, there is also no shame. Emma knows the darkest parts of Regina and vice versa and they have openly discussed that with each other on more than one occasion, yet they openly have faith in their light conquering their darkness. Whenever Regina has expressed doubt about her ability to be good and do good, Emma immediately dives in to remind her that she can do it and vice versa. Regina is the one that encouraged Emma not to give into the darkness in 4x20 and she’s the one that told Emma she believed there was still good in her when she was the Dark One. Likewise, Emma is the one that told Regina that being evil isn’t what made her strong and was the first one that believed in her way back in season 2. 

Everything Emma thinks she and H00k are, everything she wants them to be…it’s what she and Regina already are. With Emma and Regina there are no walls, no secrets, they do lean on each other and they do trust each other. 

Let’s Talk About That Sensational Show, Shall We?

It is not without bitterness that I wish to talk about the second season of Sense8 and about the show in general.

As we all know, Netflix announced a few days ago that the show would not be back for a third season, as of now without explanation.

When I watched the first season, it took me until episode three to actually get into the story and wanting to understand it better. And then of course the end of episode four happened, and I fell in love and finished the first season in a couple of sleepless nights.

I was so excited when it was announced that we would get a 2016 Christmas special, to help make the waiting more bearable. I will admit that after watching it for the first time, I felt unsatisfied, I expected more, because even though it was a two-hour special, it did not move the story forward – in fact, it felt like two hours of stagnation without proper development, despite of course a wonderful directing and soundtrack. Nevertheless, I was still happy because we got some new Sense8.

When the second season got released exactly one month ago on Netflix, I dedicated two days to watching the episodes and I was not disappointed at all.

I thought Lana Wachowski did a tremendous job, especially when knowing that her sister Lilly withdrew from the project and she had to manage practically everything on her own. I cannot pick one or even two favourite episodes simply because each one contains significant and epic lines, scenes or shots. I, however picked a few favourite scenes, which are the following:
- As the Christmas special is part of the second season, I picked the Birthday Party simply because we were, once again, shown how powerful the bond of the Sensates is, and that even though they are eight individuals, they are also “a we” and “one”.
- All of the fighting scenes involving Sun, particularly the ones when she – and subsequently the whole cluster almost died from hanging. It felt so intense I think I stopped breathing with them. I also loved the cemetery scene when she was challenging Detective Mun. They are Ying and Yang, Sun and Moon, and it is beautiful to see Sun finally being challenged and admired by a man for who she is, knowing how badly she suffered from misogynist behaviours in her corporate life.


- The montage of Wolfgang visiting the cluster to “ask for help” his own way before meeting with Lila Facchini, a Sensate from Italy who is somehow obsessed with him and will not leave him be. He is the least talkative of the cluster, and one thing I love is that they know each other so well that one does not need to voice their concerns in order to be understood, especially someone as manly as Wolfgang who would never expressly ask for help.
- The Protests montage between India/Kenya/Amanita being car chased in San Francisco. It was probably the second most tense-filled moment of the season when I actually wondered: “Is someone about to get hurt seriously?” I honestly thought something would happen to Amanita, but knowing how important she is and the value she brings to Nomi’s cluster, I knew this could not actually happen.
- Nomi’s father standing up in front of the FBI agent saying “Take your hands off my daughter”. Six words that made me tear up and still give me chills when rewatching the scene, simply because there are many transgendered, and more generally, LGBTQ people in the world, struggling to be accepted by those they love. It was empowering and truly a lesson of acceptance.

I could pick many and many others such as the moments involving our unstoppable epic trios Will-Sun-Wolfgang/Lito-Dani-Hernando, but those are the five moments that echoed the most. 

As a hopeless romantic, I loved the significant development of Kala and Wolfgang’s relationship at the end of the season. I was worried when I saw that they kept them on the backburner with few scenes compared to the other romantic pairings, but then it slowly progressed, even though I got a little bored with Kala’s indecisiveness which, inevitably, would have hurt both of the men, had she not taken a decision (Pretending isn’t a life, right?).

I also loved the scenes between Will and Riley, clearly showing that the romantic bond is heightened when they are together physically. I definitely consider them the ‘parents’ of the cluster.

As Wolfgang and Kala were finally and officially together and ready for the next step, which was hopping on a plane and meeting in Paris (thank you Rajan for buying her an apartment in one of the most romantic cities in the world), Lila had other plans for Wolfie and sold him to Whispers, who had him captured and tortured by the Biologic Preservation Organisation. The season ended with the seven members of the cluster being finally together in the flesh in London, on a mission to save Wolfgang.

Now, let’s address the elephant in the room – Netflix officially announced that Sense8 would not be back for a third season. Although there has not been an official explanation, Brian J. Smith aka Will, implied that the show was too expensive to produce and the number of viewers was not enough to support such a big global production.

From a financial perspective, it is justified, from a moral one, not so much, especially knowing the huge impact it had on people globally. Among the eight characters there is at least one you can identify with. Not only that, but cancelling it when it ended on a big cliffhanger, but also while being introduced to other members of clusters around the world calls for at least a big movie to conclude, if not a full season to explore the story of Homo Sensoriums deeper. Besides, now that the members of our favourite cluster are all together in London, the filming location could be reduced to Europe.

I consider Sense8 more than a simple show. Besides being ambitious, diverse and inclusive, it is bold, it touches upon subjects that might be uncomfortable to talk about, but still are important to discuss. It also brings many stereotypes to light, and uses those to twist them and turn them into something we would not have expected but works so well. In the current tense political and societal landscapes, it is important to remind people that diversity is what makes us rich from the inside.

Could Sense8 be the first show saved by Netflix? 


While waiting for an official explanation, there is a widely spread petition which has been signed by +400,000 fans from across the world, and it has been launched less than a week ago so it is not crazy to believe it could reach half a million by the end of the week.
In the meantime, you can still stream the 23 episodes of Sense8, and if you are not watching it yet, maybe this will help you decide.

The Visvim Kerchief Down Jacket KOFU

Yes, they’ve done it again. Japanese brand Visvim delivers two exclusive down jackets for the season with exclusive being the word of order here - the patchwork on each jacket is unique and differs from one to the next. Due to the vintage fabrics reminiscent of bandanas, blankets and African prints, no jacket is the same, adding a whole new meaning to the uniqueness Visvim is known for. 

My hopes for SMC Dream/Naoko's vision

(Since everyone is doing this…and literally everyone in the smc fandom has different expectations for the new designs in season 4. But no one has been a voice I personally 100% agree with (everyone is slighty different) and I know this is pointless since Japanese animators do not read tumblr responses from any western fans but here it goes.)

Sailor Moon as visioned by Naoko Takeuchi, right from the beginning had a myriad of inspirations that inspired the creation of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and the Sailor V manga. Maybe it might be hard to notice at first but these inspirations become more apparent with each volume. There is most definitely a reason for everything she does.

So in order to talk about “my hopes” I need to tell you about Naoko’s. We are one in the same and I wouldn’t change a thing. She loves many things and all of the things she loves are present in Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon!

She loves fashion and was frequently inspired by Vogue and 90’s couture. Even some of the outfits were directly inspired from signature couture pieces! This is why proportions appear elongated and there’s a certain elegance and maturity to her designs. If you’ve ever seen a fashion designer make a sketch then you’ll know why.

She loved figure skating and the movement and elegance of dancing which is why everything has the caught-in-the-wind effect. You’ve probably noticed the skirts look a lot like the skirts figure skaters wear. That’s why the clothes are short and flowy so they can move around in them easily.

One of the most important inspirations for the message of Sailor Moon (SM) and the concept was her love for Astronomy and astrophotography. This probably explains the weightlessness of her designs or why there is a noticeable reduction in gravity in her drawings like everything is floating.

When times were stressful, she dreamed of one day, going up in space and looking back on Earth. She tells us we only have one Earth and to experience such a thing from that vantage point is a reminder of what true happiness must be like. A small reminder that we share more similarities in each other than we have differences.

She loved takarazuka (Japanese) style theater and this probably inspired some of the role-reversals you see in SM. This is why most of the villians are female. Also why Tuxedo Kamen plays a role similar to the damsel in distress or why he typically has powers normally associated with female characters. The key here is female empowerment. You get the sense of strength from this inspiration. This explains the guardian-aspect of the characters here.

Finally one of the last inspirations that drove her to become a mangaka was reading girls manga. She loved this concept and she was a big supporter of seeing more media produced for women by women in the future.

Remember this was at a time in the early 1990s where the Equal Employment Opportunity Law was passed which enabled women to go out into the world and work. She thought it was long overdue and that women needed to be involved in the industry.

So to sum up this short but very long article, when you start saying things like “I want the animators to change their proportions or I don’t think they should wear lip gloss.” What you are effectively saying is that you support the removal of something that makes Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon and so special to so many.

The proportions resemble fashion and add elegance/sophistication and give the girls a sleek maturity. Hence why they are styled with lip gloss to make a statement. It’s empowering. You’re effectively supporting the removal of something that makes them so powerful. It’s literally a fantasy and not meant to be taken literally. This is not real-life, it’s a work of fiction inspired by real life.

So yes, I hope the sequel of Sailor Moon Crystal takes these inspirations into account. I hope dream is dreamy, elegant, mature & elongated, stylized, empowering, flowy & weightless, caught-in-the-wind and an overall fantasy from a womans perspective.

In dream they are all 15 (some are older) and in stars they turn 16. I see no point in supporting super exaggerated anime expressions that make the girls appear younger when they are not at this point.

Sailor Moon is a story about a group of girls with tragic pasts who were forced to grow up quickly and fight for what they believe in at a very young age. Don’t try to change Sailor Moon, let them be who they are. Let them grow up in front of our eyes and be the strong and courageous women they were destined to become.

It’s a powerful message not easily digestible by a society that still views women as the exact opposite of all things Sailor Moon stands for. Sailor Moon never once acts masculine. She emodies everything feminine. She has the bows, the skirt, the make-up, the earrings, tiara and the flawless hair and she stands strong in the face of what seems to be impossible circumstances.

She makes us all believe the impossible has a chance in hell to become possible again. That we all stand a chance, even if the odds are against us. This is Naoko Takeuchi’s dream and this is my dream. So “#just let me dream” and “#take me to the stars

The moonlight is a messenger of Love.

Brian Orser on Yuzuru’s 4Lo and the discussion after Skate Canada (excerpts from Team Brian 2)

(Picture is of Yuzuru at the medal ceremony in Helsinki. It didn’t come from Team Brian 2, but I always wondered what and how much it took the team to get there.)

There is actually a lot to marvel about, in terms of how Yuzuru’s season came together so beautifully in the end. As we look forward to the next season, let’s review how the last season began with three excerpts from Team Brian 2

From Brian’s perspective, we can see the concerns and worries over Yuzuru’s health, his at-the-time troubling 4T (in contrast to its 3A-toppling status now :o), the immense belief and strength (and stubbornness) it took for Yuzuru to persevere with the 4Lo, as well as the discussion post-Skate Canada that lead to mutual understanding and ultimately, a successful season overcoming those difficult challenges. Cheers and kudos, Team Yuzu! 

(Conclusion: Brian gains 15kg from the last six months of 2016 and loses 1kg in hair.)

Hey there! I'm a big fan of your writing and I was wondering if you had any klance fic recs? Hope you're having a good day ~A

I’m having an okay day, which is good enough for me :) As for fic recs, I’m not too well-read when it comes to Voltron fic, but I can offer up a few of my faves, sure! :D (Apologies ahead of time if you’ve already read these.) 

Foreign Scenes by bwyn, is one of my favourite fics so far — a real world AU, it has some truly stunningly beautiful prose, and the love story is simultaneously funny and heartfelt, while also being whimsical. It’s a slow burn to savour; I’m waiting for a free rainy day so I can curl up with a mug of tea and really sink into it again. The characterization is so damn good, I am in awe.

The Home series by Reader115 ( @reader115) is another one I re-read as it’s fantastic; it has some of my favourite banter, a drunk!Keith that had me snorting out loud, and also Space Cat Keith who is too adorable for words. The second story, Take Me Home, has Lance’s reunion with his family, and it is amazing in a different way — it’s realistic (not as easy or joyous as Lance expected), while also delivering delightful warm fuzzies and laugh-out-loud funny times.

blue, buried deep by aknightley is a re-telling of season two that I thoroughly enjoyed, have gone back to many times just to savour the characterizations. It made me appreciate season two even more, while providing some glorious explanations for the spaces in-between episodes, and another slow burn love story that had me grinning like a fool by the end.

True Love or Something is a series by DeerstalkerDeathFrisbee, and I adore it to pieces. It’s an AU the shows various moments from Keith and Lance’s life together in out of order one-shots, all of them shades of hilarious, romantic, heartbreaking, or some combination of all three. The banter in these stories makes me giggle to myself each and every time I read. Their friends and families are vital parts of this, (I freaking love all of them too), and everything is warm and gorgeous.

nothing’s quite as sweet by dimpleforyourthoughts is another slow burn that I love and re-read a lot. It’s an AU wherein Lance volunteers at a cat shelter, and Keith works for the evil Galra Grinds chain coffeeshop, and I love everything about this; the characterizations, the setting, the kittens, the way Lance is so obviously in love with Keith, and Keith is so in love with him but oblivious to Lance’s feelings. It makes me happy each time I read it.

Whew, well, that’s all I got — I’m sure I’ve read more, but those are the ones that immediately came to mind :) 

I tend to only read fanfic right before I go to bed (which means I am horrible about commenting, and I feel so guilty — apologies to any of these authors if I haven’t commented on your fic!), and so my memory, already not the greatest, is probably forgetting many other delightful stories. 

If you haven’t read some of these, I hope you enjoy giving them a try! And thank you so much for being so kind :D *hugs*

More Reibert Headcanons!

These have been hanging out in my drafts for a while, so I figured with season 2 and all I should post them! (these are also to continue off of my last post)

  • Reiner loves sending Bertholdt Snapchats… of everything. Selfies, everyday life, cute animals, food, literally everything. He just gets excited about things and wants to share his fun with his boyfriend. Bert thinks this is adorable though and appreciates that Reiner thinks of him so much. Surprisingly, he’ll often respond with his own - Reiner is pretty much the only person he’ll send snaps to.
  • They both think the other’s eyes are the most beautiful they’ve ever seen.
  • The TV is ALWAYS on during football season. Reiner keeps up with as many teams as he can and often has friends over to watch games with him. Bert might join for a bit, but he's​ usually happier to hang out in his room by himself. Reiner is always sure to check in with him every so often and bring him snacks and kisses.
  • Basketball season, however, is something they enjoy together. Date nights include going out to watch games downtown as well as just staying in, ordering takeout, and yelling at the TV from their couch. They’ll also set up brackets every year for friendly competition (Bert always wins though).
  • They’ve gotten so used to cuddling with each other before they fall asleep that when one is gone, the other now needs a pillow or something soft to hug to sleep. Reiner once caught Bertholdt​ napping with his sweatshirt, but he thought it was adorable and stole Bert’s pillow to snuggle with the next week.
  • Sometimes Bert can be a little forgetful when it comes to taking care of himself, but thankfully Reiner is always there to make sure he sleeps, eats, and takes his meds.
  • Bertholdt gives the best massages. Reiner loves coming home after a busy day, lying down on the bed, and letting his boyfriend rub all the tension out of his shoulders and back. He practically melts to a puddle, and more often than not he’s so relaxed that he’ll fall asleep.
  • If Reiner’s annoying him, Bert will withhold kisses simply by tilting his head up. Reiner hates this. A wrestling match usually ensues.
  • Although sometimes they switch, Bert is usually the big spoon for cuddling. Their bodies fit together nicely… and that way Reiner can grab Bert’s arms and keep him from moving around so much when he sleeps.
  • Despite the confidence he radiates, Reiner will still occasionally need a bit of validation from Bert. He sometimes worries that he’s not doing a good enough job as a boyfriend, even though he pours so much time and energy into the relationship. Above all else, he just wants Bert to be happy. But all it takes are some gentle words of reassurance and sweet kisses from Bert, and suddenly all of Reiner’s fears are gone and replaced with even more love for his boyfriend~

My characters so far have been Mazoga Shattersky, a beautiful trans lady orcish Wizard with two girlfriends who definitely didn’t deserve it, and Talulah, a buff trans lesbian and vampire hunter who prolly will deserve it.

The X-Files Graphic Novels: A Visual Guide

Okay, in order to avoid confusion, let me explain a little bit about the graphic novels, what the hell is happening in each one, and why this Audible adaptation is going to be so awesome (in my humble opinion).

They are making the adaptation from The X-Files Season 10, written by Joe Harris.  That’s this series, published by IDW in 2013, which takes place sometime after IWTB.  That’s all I’m going to say about a timeline, because when it was first published, the actual Revival (Season 10 of the television series) wasn’t even being talked about, so IWTB is our only frame of reference in terms of when these events happened.  In it, Mulder and Scully are still living under assumed names, but they’re living together.  Scully is a doctor, Mulder is still kind of a homebody, and then something happens that brings them back into the search for the Truth.  Quite a few of our old favorite monsters, villains, and secondary characters make a comeback, including the Flukeman, the Peacocks, the Long Gunmen, and Gibson Praise.  And again, let me stress…Mulder and Scully are STILL TOGETHER ROMANTICALLY: 

The above series is NOT to be confused with The X-Files, which is also written by Joe Harris and was published by IDW in 2016.  The X-Files, pictured below, is a completely different storyline from the one pictured above.  It’s a Revival-era series which takes place sometime after the My Struggle I, meaning that it includes the estrangement.  This is a story about Revival-era Mulder and Scully, and encompasses the whole breakup and all that jazz, and THIS is the series that Scully has started to see someone else:

Request: Hi! I have an idea for an imagine and I though I should share with my fav writer on Tumblr: you since you are taking and making amazing Alex’s requests. Well since everyone since to already hate this new girl Alicia I thought that maybe you could write about Alex x reader knowing each other from working during s4 and kinda dating (not officially) and then this new girl comes in for s5 and starts flirting shamelessly with Alex so reader is really jalous but he calms her down, yes? PLEASE!
Note: I hope I did this one right? Don’t know why but I’m not so confident about it, I just don’t want to dissapoint you. So let me know, all of you, release the pressure resting on my heart. ;-) But Enjoy, I certainly did.

Two weeks of beach and sunshine got you all reloaded for the filming of season five of Vikings that started tomorrow. In the past two weeks you didn’t do anything more than laying at the beach, reading and even did some sight seeing. But how good those hot tempatures maybe were and how proud you was on the little tan you got, you where glad to be home again. You pulled you baggage from the transporter before you walked out of the maze that always seemed to confuse you. When you came at the arrivalgate you saw a figure you probarbly didn’t suspect to see. ‘Are you here for me?’ You asked Alex completly confused. Yes, you texted past two weeks and to be honest, you missed him more than the cat waiting for you home but you really didn’t suspect him to be here waiting for you.
'No, I’m waiting on the old lady over there.’ He pointed. You turned around to an older woman, hugging her husband before you realized that he was joking. 'I’m here for you, yes.’ He corrected himself. You tilted your head, a smile spreading over you face before you wrapped an arm underneath his shoulder to hug him. Yes you missed him, that tight hug said it all. Through the whole filming of season four you kind of grew tighter with Alex. You dated him, on a occasion of two but it was a little unclear of there was friendship of more. But as long as he was around you were glad. 'Next time you run of to the sunset you don’t forget me.’ He placed a greeting kiss on your cheek before pulling your baggage out of your hands. 'What are you doing tonight?’ He asked with that kind of a promesing smile on his lips.
'I’m just back. I’m gonna go home, unpack and take a deep breath before we have our first setday tommorow.’ That last one on a little more excited than you expected it to be.
'Somebody looks forward.’
'Offcourse, missed all of you.’
'Me, the boys and Ida are coming together tonight, you should to.’ He suggested. He didn’t lead you right to a cab but to his own car.
'I’m exhausted.’
'Come on Y/n, I missed you.’ He putted on his puppy face on and you shook you head, looking to him from the other side of the car.
'Fine.’ You smiled, knowing he would harass you until you gave in anyway. He brought you home and picked you right up later that day. Your eyes traveled up to the grey sky remembering how much sunlight you had on your vacation.
'Missing the sun already?’ He joked. You stepped out of the car and looked up to the sky again.
'I’m half freezing to dead being back here.’ You reacted. He wrapped his arm over your shoulder and walked with you inside. Marco jumped the both of you from behind.
'Y/n, next time you go on vacation you tell uss so we can join.’
'You see.’ Alex agreed with his friend.
'I didn’t miss the both of you together.’ You pointed to them. Alex and Marco always were trouble if they hang around with each other. He walked between the two of you and wrapped his arms around you and Alex.
'Back together, you ready?’ Marco asked you. He held you so tight you hardly could move your neck. You putted your thumb up and he released you, giving you a kiss on your cheek before leading you to the others. Ida jumped right from her seat and embraced you tight.
'Glad to have you back. I’m so excited.’
'You’re not alone.’ You said with a promesing look before greeting Jordan to. If you talked about squadgoals, the five of you were. Alex ordered some shots and gave if to each one of you.
'My boys and girls, to season five.’ Alex said with a promessing glare over each one of you. He putted his little glass up and you all ticked it before drinking. To season five.

This is Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero’s very own “Phyllis” ….VisDev by Joe Moshier. He did these all in order as they appear. You can see how his ideas progressed. When he was done I took what I liked from each, added my own elements to make Phyllis fit into the theater more - and feel like the furniture, so to speak… Then Joe did a final drawover to bring it into his style… But almost all elements came from this single first pass from Joe. He’s an amazing artist. (will post another post that shows the progression continue….) Some wild ideas here…

These VisDev art posts are all to honor the Season 2 premiere one week from today, July 10th where ever you can watch Disney XD! Check it out!

Might post some color art, and some Storyboards too, if you guys wanna see…

So the other night on Dance Moms, Holly called Maddie’s Cry solo iconic and I never understood why that one in particular was considered iconic..however…it got me thinking about ‘iconic Dance Moms routines.’ So I decided to list the ones I think are most iconic (in a positive way) and why. :) and just a disclaimer I’m kind of basing this off of the routines I see STILL being talked about, as well as the reactions I have read on YouTube. :) I’ll also put routines on this list that got a big reaction on the show but I’m trying to aim mainly on the positive side.
In no particular order I’ll start with solos first.

Maddie’s “Angel”

This solo was touching I think and resonated because it was dedicated to Maddie’s grandma. It was also one of her best routines of season 1 by far.

Maddie’s “Disappear”

I dunno about you guys but I always go back to this one whenever I’m thinking about my favorite solos from each of the girls. This one was also a dedication and Maddie performed really well.

Chloe’s “Dream on a Star”
Everyone. Loves. This routine. Let’s be totally honest, we ALL love this routine. In the episode this one was from Cathy (or the producers rather) tried to psych Chloe out by giving Cathy’s soloist the same song. And instead of freaking out, Chloe literally knocked it out of the park.

Chloe’s “Silence”

This routine was great, and not only that but it was probably such a highly anticipated routine when it aired (unfortunately I wasn’t watching the show when it first aired) because everyone wanted to see if Chloe would win at nationals. Not only did she perform her heart out but she WON!!! Yay Chloe!

Paige’s “Make Some Noise”

This one was iconic to be because it literally was one of the best times I had seen Paige dance and she won! I remember Abby scolding Kelly for the costume cuz she didn’t want Paige’s legs to show. Well…take that Abby lol. 😛

Maddie’s “In My Heart”

Of course this was gonna be on here. This routine was basically the talk of the entire tv show for like four episodes. And it was the first time the music ever skipped on one of the girls. But Maddie kept on dancing!

Chloe’s “Angry Bird”

Even though it didn’t score as high as some of her other solos, this routine was the routine that made me LOVE Chloe. And if nothing else the costume is definitely one that sticks with you. Easily one of the best ALDC costumes lol.

Paige’s “Tongue Twister”

Once again of course this was gonna be on there. Not only was it a routine that was supposed to air in season 1 but when it finally did happen in season 2, Kelly changed the choreography and I think that’s something no one will forget. With Kelly’s choreography though Paige placed right under Chloe. :) go Paige!

Nia’s “20’s Scat”

This routine had to be difficult timing was but Nia absolutely shined with this routine. She looked confident as all hell doing it as well. Abby in the first few seasons rarely ever gave Nia mature routines, but this was one of them and it was absolutely stunning.

Brooke’s “The Animals Know”

This solo never even officially aired on Dance Moms aside from one of their reunion specials. It got cut but Lifetime still put it up as an extra and even STILL I see a lot of people say this was their favorite Brooke solo. Hey and I’m one of them lol.

Maddie’s “Birthday”

People absolutely love this solo. I see it talked about in such high regards all the time honestly. Not only that but it did also take second at Jump which was pretty awesome. This was the very first solo of season 4 and it was a great way to start it out. I always loved this solo too and the costume was one of my favorite Maddie solo costumes.

Kendall’s “Voodoo Doll”

I think towards the end of season 3 and all through season 4 was really when Kendall blossomed as a dancer and I think this routine started it. She was second only to Maddie at nationals with this one. It was also Kendall’s first time competing a solo at nationals.

Mackenzie’s “The Party Starts Right Now”

This is the only routine I remember Abby ever crying during the rehearsal for because she was so happy with how it was turning out. Maybe it wasn’t so much the solo itself that was iconic but Abby’s reaction to Mackenzie performing it!

Chloe’s “Red Queen”

Not only was Chloe super excited about this one, but I think we all were. Excluding all of the drama that surrounded this solo (Maddie forgetting hers, and once again the producers making one of Cathy’s students–which happened to be Kendall this time–copy her), this solo was wonderfully executed and really showed off Chloe’s amazing ability to do darker character pieces.

Brooke’s “Diary of Anne Frank”

This is another one I see a lot of people praise and call their favorite Brooke solo. It was a routine she won at nationals with and rightfully so. She performed the hell out of this routine and the ending always gave me chills.

Nia’s “Goodbye Maya”

The one and only solo to this day to incorporate spoken word. Nia killed with this routine and once again the ending always gave me chills when she says that final line. “I speak to Maya. Goodbye.” I was always impressed with the strength in her voice she managed to have while talking IN BETWEEN dance moves.

Chloe’s “I Know It’s Too Late”

A lot of people were moved by this solo. Another solo where the dancer literally performed the hell out of it. Everyone on the show, I remember, was very worried about this solo because Chloe was going up against a boy but she still pulled out that win.

Mackenzie’s “Killer Bee”

Another stellar performance at nationals. I know this one could be considered negative because it was a dig at Cathy but it was Kenzie’s first solo at nationals. It’s gotta go on there. 😉

Maddie’s “Maddie”

Dude…the song was specially made for her. And it was probably one of Maddie’s best performed upbeat numbers. Abby rarely ever gave Maddie jazz/musical theater numbers but out of the few she offered, I think this one was the best.

Maddie’s “Amazing Grace”

This was one of the best routines Maddie ever competed at a national competition. And hey…Abby even modeled a group dance out of it in the next season. So it deserves the recognition lol.

Kendall’s “Not Just Another Pretty Face”

Whether this was a “Maddie solo” or not, I don’t really care. Kendall did amazing with this routine and I see tons of people say this was their favorite routine of Kendall’s. I think in this routine is the best her legs and feet have ever looked. :)

Chloe’s “Lucky Star”

I feel like so much was riding on this routine, and I almost feel like this was the routine so many people (who don’t look at spoilers lol) watched with baited breath to see the outcome of. And I have to agree with Francisco from AfterBuzz, Chloe really did look like she was fighting for something in this solo. There was not a single moment she ever let up on the showmanship of this routine. And her feet looked absolutely beautiful. :)

So solos aren’t the only things that can be iconic right? So let’s talk about some duets.

Maddie and Chloe’s “Black Swan”

I think this is probably everyone’s favorite duo from the entire show. Maybe not EVERYONE’S but you get my point. This duet was also such a great way for Chloe to come back and boost her confidence after forgetting her solo at the same competition. :) I think this duet really showcased the best of both Maddie and Chloe.

Paige and Chloe’s “Wishbone”

Once again, excluding the drama surrounding this routine, I think it would STILL be iconic. Chloe and Paige were ecstatic for this duet and watching it really is a tear jerker because of the chemistry they have.

Maddie and Kendall’s “Bodies Electric”

This was another routine I feel like had a lot riding on it, especially for Kendall. And I did remember watching this one with baited breath, hoping they placed first so Abby would have to eat her words.

Now I’ll do trios but I don’t think there will be as many here as the other ones.

Chloe, Maddie, and Paige “Pin-Up Girls”

The very first trio on Dance Moms and it was performed by the main trio of the group. Let’s also not forget that Chloe kept dancing even as her costume malfunctioned. So yeah.

Yeah I think that’s probably the most iconic one. So now here comes the funniest part! Groups!!!

“Where Have All the Children Gone?”

Duh. Like this is probably everyone’s go-to routine when they try to remember the best from season 1. Great concept, cool choreography, and innovative music. This was Abby (or…the producers?) at her best.

“The Last Text”

And duh again. This routine I think was Abby’s favorite routine of all time. And to me it was one of the best routines ever put on the show. It was a little gimmicky but I don’t think it was cringeworthy like some of their other gimmicky routines.

“Twilight”

Easily one of the best routines of season 2. Nick really highlighted the best of each individual dancer and people adored this routine.

“Rosa Parks”

This routine I think was a tribute that, once again, wasn’t cringeworthy like some of their other ones. The song was great and Nia really REALLY did great as the lead. Like that was literally such a shining moment for her. That routine always makes me cry too.

“Living With The Ribbon”

It makes me so mad that the impact of this dance was swallowed up by the “two girls, one solo nonsense.” Either way this was a stand out piece among group dances and having Brooke as the lead was an excellent choice because she always danced so much differently than the others.

“Amber Alert”

I didn’t like this routine all that much. But when you go on YouTube and look at the comments, people put this right up there with The Last Text and Where Have All the Children Gone. I will say this; I only didn’t like this routine cuz the story was confusing. I thought the girls performed it really well though.

“Witches of East Canton”

This one was probably my personal favorite from the first half of season 4. And I see it as a lot of people’s favorites from the entire show. The choreography of this dance was pretty great and each of the girls performed really amazing through their bodies and their faces. It was altogether just really good.

“Amazing Grace”

Modeled after Maddie’s solo at nationals. My God was this routine beautiful and even though they didn’t win, Abby was still happy about the performance. It was a beautiful tribute to Mrs. Miller and it really felt like breathing in fresh air when you watched it.

“Stomp the Yard”

This one isn’t one of my personal favorites but the reaction it got from fans was pretty positive. A LOT of people said this was one of their favorites and they really enjoyed the fresh choreography.

“Suicide Hotline”

Abby wanted to create another number to go right up there with The Last Text and Where Have All the Children Gone and she did it. I do have some mixed feelings about this dance but I can’t really deny that it was the best routine of season 6.

“Why Wait?”

This one got a huge reaction on the show. According to the moms, the girls and Gia worked on it the night before in the hotel rooms. While a lot of the attention surrounding this was pretty negative it’s deniable the moms were ecstatic when they won. And so we’re the girls.

So what do you guys thing? Think I missed any?

  • UWAKK I CAN ALREADY PICTURE THIS
  • ok so so sO!
  • seungkwan
  • boo seungkwan
  • as a roommate
  • you seriously won’t know whether to thank all the gods up there for sending you such an angelic patootie 
  • or to curse the devils for sending you one of their kind
  • bc not gon lie but seungkwan is a real mix
  • the story of how the two of you ended up in the same dorm room is really simple tbh
  • according to school protocols ;; male dorms and female dorms should be far apart
  • like really far apart
  • bc no one wants ehEM EHEM to happen right?
  • wrong lol 
  • the university gives no shit about that man
  • they just mix whatever they want
  • but most girls and guys willingly stick to sharing a room with the same gender since it’ll be less awkward
  • but you transferred to the school around midterms 
  • and the girls’ dorms were full
  • or at least that’s what they told you
  • so they decide to put you in the guys’ dorms
  • “you don’t mind, right?” 
  • “of course not. everything’s alright.” 
  • “great. here’s your key. eleventh floor, room five.” 
  • ok you minded
  • a lot.
  • like you pretty much have to live with this guy now?? and if he’s messy and disgusting and—
  • oh my god you didn’t even want to think about it
  • you kinda resigned to your fate and went straight to the dorms, to your room, bc you had a shitload of luggage to park.
  • when you got in, you were pleasantly surprised
  • the place was really really really clean??
  • like there were no random trousers hanging everywhere and the floor felt really dust-less
  • and you felt that ray of hope that this plan wouldn’t be so bad after all
  • and like juST before you were about to unpack
  • the door opens
  • //grand music plays
  • seungkwan enters
  • but at that time you didn’t know him yet so you just awkwardly scramble to your feet
  • and bow slightly since you were aware that your roommate was a year older
  • and do your formal introduction of ‘hi i’m y/n please take care of mi’
  • you look up and notice he’s cute
  • like cute as in
  • the baby kind of cute screeeeches
  • and he looked nice and quiet
  • HA ‘QUIET’ WHAT WERE YOU EVEN THINKING
  • ok so he introduces himself as seungkwan 
  • and the start was really awkward tbh 
  • the both of you were just literally walking circles around the room and staying on opposite ends bc awKWARD !1!!
  • you weren’t one to start a convo so yeah this time was no exception
  • but seungkwan actually initiated one and you were so relieved bc you were literally suffocating from this awkward air
  • he was like “so, um, you’re a year younger?” 
  • “yeah”
  • “do you need help, er, unpacking?”
  • you turn to your heavy ass luggage and overflowing clothes and laughed
  • “yeah, i guess?”
  • seungkwan looked excited bc he internally wanted to do sth so ya’ll can get over this ice cold thing
  • so ice ice baby ok i’m sorry let’s continue
  • and he literally bounces on two feet and like goes over to you and hE LOOKED LIKE AN ADORABLE PENGUIN ASDFGHJK
  • he helps you get your clothes out and like a lot of them got unfolded so he kindly folds them back and stacks them neatly
  • then he like opens the empty side of the closet which he wasn’t using and helps you load your clothes in there
  • and he hangs up your coats before coming back to you 
  • who was struggling with the cables you had put in your bag bc they tangled up real bad
  • meANWHILE
  • seungkwan decides to unzip a ‘hidden compartment’ of your luggage 
  • and vOILA
  • he bursts into laughter and you had no idea what was going on
  • then you notice the unzipped compartment and you just
  • “SEUNGKWAN !!!?!??!?!?” 
  • and he was literally a laughing mess on the floor like his ears were red and he was rolling about trying to catch his breath but it wasn’t working
  • bc,,,, you kept your bra and undies in there
  • and seungkwan saw it
  • zE eMBArrASSmENT 
  • seungkwan manages to choke out an ‘iM soRRY’ before he continues dying in his own laughter
  • and you can’t help but laugh too bc his laughter was contagious asf
  • and bc of this incident ,,, ya’ll became really really close
  • it’s like a ‘he already saw my undergarments on our first meeting what worse can happen’
  • so yall became very open with each other
  • like after four months or so ya’ll bFF MAN
  • he even knew where you kept your pads
  • bc there were those days where it just comes unexpectedly and you don’t know until you strip in the toilet for a bath
  • so you just scream for seungkwan to pass you one like
  • “seUNGKWANN”
  • “YA”
  • “WILL YOU BE A DEAR AND—”
  • “YA SURE” 
  • that was great to you tbh like it made life so convenient
  • but the downsides of having seungkwan as a roommate 
  • lolol 
  • so many many
  • seungkwan’s in the school choir (which surprisingly accepts both boys & girls)
  • so he claims he needs his personal vocal practice
  • every.
  • single.
  • day.
  • and the room turns into a freaking opera theatre istg
  • like you literally hear him go do re mi fa SO LAR TEE DOHHHHH
  • while you’re there just trying to get your shit tgt
  • and you sometimes suspect he’s just trying to annoy you on purpose
  • bc he goes wAAY out of tune just to hit the extra extra high notes
  • and he even screeches sometimes and oh god your goosebumps just ploop
  •  “ seungkwan. ”
  • “ SOLLLL “
  • “ boo “
  • “ LAAAAAAA “
  • “ seung “
  • “ TEEEEEEEEEEE”
  • and you dont even bother to say the last syllable of his name and you just glare at him and he just shuts up and laughs really loud like his eyes squints together and he just drops onto the bed
  • adorable
  • he’s also really childish at heart so
  • he likes messing with you when you’re in the shower
  • he would turn off the heater and/or the lights
  • and the first time he turned off the lights you freaked out really badly bc you were afraid of the dark and you genuinely thought there was a blackout
  • and you shouted for him but he didn’t know you were scared so he just silently snickered outside
  • but when he heard you sob on the other side of the door
  • oHhHHhhH GOOD GOD
  • he quickly turns the lights back on and like when you come out he was so damn apologetic like
  • “i’m so sorry i didn’t know omg”
  • “ i h8 YOU “
  • but no you didn’t lol you loved this squish
  • and he made up for it by literally being by your side for the next few days
  • and cuDDLE SESSIONS BECAME A THING
  • i mean
  • ya’ll were roommates
  • cuddling is the most normal thing to happen
  • so aft that ‘blackout’ incident ,,, that night ,,,
  • you couldn’t sleep lol
  • you guys had a really wide bunk bed if that made sense??
  • it was almost like a second story on the upper deck
  • seungkwan had been taking the bottom deck so when you moved in you just took the one at the top
  • and thAT NIGHT
  • you just kept tossing and turning and like the bed would shake a little every time you move
  • so seungkwan can’t sleep either since the bed just keeps wobbling
  • “you can’t sleep?” he says,, just staring up
  • “…yeah.”
  • and then there’s this short silence.
  • “you up for cuddles?”
  • and another silence.
  • bc ngl you lived for cuddles
  • but you would get really insecure about everything bc like your cuddle partner would be sososo close ?? ya’know??
  • but before you can reply,,
  • seungkwan literally just comes up and pokes his head to your deck and grins and you just laugh
  • aandddd he just scurries to your side and plonks down 
  • “ you’re not against this, right? ”
  • he just doesn’t want you to feel uncomfortable or anything uk
  • “ n-no, i’m not. ”
  • seungkwan would like laugh at your nervousness,, but he just wraps his arm around you and just stroke your hair and stuff like that 
  • and it calmed you down a loooot.
  • he was so warm and comfy you honestly just wanted to stay in his arms forever lolol
  • so this cuddle thing became a very natural thing since it happened often aft that
  • and when the two of you actually fall asleep
  • it’s a totally different thing in the middle of the night 
  • you would accidentally jab him in the eyeballs since you move q alot when you sleep
  • and he just jerks awake like whO IS YOU WHO AWOKE ME FROM MAI BEAUTY SLEEP
  • then he sees you with your arms sprawled everywhere and he’d just laugh quietly before tucking you back under the covers
  • and the next morning he’d complain all about it
  • “ Y/N ”
  • “ ?? whAT ”
  • “ YOU NEARLY TORE MY EYEBALLS OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS YTD ”
  • ya he exaggerates a lot
  • and you’d just laugh bc you are aware of the fact that you are kinda violent when you’re in dreamland
  • but seungkwan honestly doesn’t mind lol bc other than that,, you were a good cuddle buddy
  • oK MOVING ON
  • can you imagine when ya’ll have to order food
  • HAHAHA it’s like tug of war
  • like you like fried chicken
  • but he likes seasoned chicken
  • and you guys can’t buy both bc you guys were supposed to sneak it into the dorms
  • and two packs of chicken would be like bringing a freaking mountain into the dorm
  • so you two just start throwing random stuff at each other
  • “ you broke my pen ytd?? ”
  • “you dropped my compact powder and it got everywhere.”
  • “ya but u made me clean the entire room bc of that.”
  • “but we got seasoned chicken in the cafeteria”
  • “horrible ones.”
  • “yoU TURNED OFF THE LIGHTS THAT DAY”
  • “no, okay, but —”
  • “YOU MADE ME CRI”
  • seungkwan just gives up and 
  • “fiNE FRIED CHICKEN OK”
  • //internal evil laughter
  • “love you seungkwannn”
  • //finger guns
  • seungkwan just shakes his head and places the order and turns away from you to let out his smile
  • ok ya so all in all
  • seungkwan would just be a really soft and annoying roommate 
  • and the two of you would be like the bickering best friends
  • heartheart
Look here for a moment: Star and Marco's Friendship + Star’s Wand Theory = ?

So, if you are a big fan of Star vs. The Forces of Evil and a Starco shipper, I suggest you stay and indulge yourself in this post of mine. I will make sure you won’t regret it. 😉

This is long overdue and this is probably me just ranting more of my favorite cartoon animated shows on tv but I still want to put this out there because there are some great animated series out there that don’t really get enough credit because they are deemed “just cartoons” which is really shallow of some people. Just because it’s animated, it doesn’t mean that there is no depth in their characters or story. As I mentioned in my last post about “Zootopia”, there will always be something more than what lies on the surface. I admire the creators of these shows because they really pay attention to details which is important. (I LOVE YOU GUYS! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. YOU ROCK!) Ok! back to topic.

Now, we all fell in love with the amazing perky monster fighting Princess from another dimension, Star Butterfly, and her badass adorkable Karate chopping bestfriend on Earth, Marco Diaz, on the first season of “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” ever since their first episode which aired on Disney XD last year. We all watched their adventures, shipped them hard ever since “The Bloodmoon Ball” episode, witness their bond of friendship strengthen from their last episode, and anticipated for their 2nd season to come which finally aired on July this year and not to mention that jaw dropping, sugar pumping trailer! (YAY!)

I’ve been up to date with their episodes this season 2 and there are some important points I would like to share with you all. If you’ve noticed them or not, please feel free to comment your thoughts below my fellow brothers and sisters.

First and foremost, let’s recap what happened with Star’s wand from the last episode of Season 1 to the 1st episode of Season 2. Now, her wand was destroyed and became a new wand with the help of a new unicorn and the wand’s star was broken into two with one missing piece that we now know is in Ludo’s possession as seen from the episode 2 in the show. In S2 ep1, the wand is clearly malfunctioning and acting weird like going berserk in blasting random energy without Star’s authorization. In the recent episode, she’s fixed it with the guidance of Glossaryk by finding the thing that doesn’t belong which was TOFFEE’S FINGER.

I was astonished by this reveal and confirmation that Star’s mom, Queen Moon, DID have a past with Toffee which explains his evil actions during season 1 when he forced Star to destroy her magic wand in order to save Marco with the spell her mom first taught her. His line hinted that he was close with Queen Moon before and it was proven in Queen Moon’s tapestry,

According to the tablet Star has read about her mom, Moon the Undaunted, she had cast her darkest spell that will forever haunt the immortal monster– Toffee. Now, from what I understand from this episode and the previous ones, Moon and Toffee definitely knew each other very well and were very close friends until this very moment weaved in Moon’s tapestry. It definitely means that she probably cursed Toffee and banished him due to a betrayal or a big fight which caused a rift between the two.You can really see Moon’s anger in the picture and the shock from Toffee’s face. It’s kinda hinting that Moon really cursed him because if you’ve notice he can grow his body parts back, all except for his missing finger. It doesn’t lead much on but Toffee’s finger probably signifies that it is important to both of them; it definitely is symbolic. 

Next, Toffee’s line in the last episode of Season 1 clearly had something to do with Marco’s role in Star’s prophecy which is one of the reasons he kidnapped him. He said that Marco was a disappointment even though he was trying to be polite with Marco and didn’t really want to hurt him or Star because he was only after the destruction of the wand. He is expecting something from Marco, that is definite. 

And there were moments when Marco would be seen sometimes something related with a suit which we know is Toffee’s main outfit. Plus, Marco doesn’t really know what he’s going to be in the future and this shows him in a suit. It is not for sure but Toffee probably sees Marco’s potential in his plan. So I’m gonna quote what other fans have been theorizing: Toffee is to Moon as Marco is to Star. This is because they clearly have a strong connection with each other.

Thirdly, THIS WOMAN:

Eclipsa. (Her name totally suits her btw and you might know why). She definitely has something to do with what will happen in the future and it will surely have something to do with Star, Marco, Toffee, and Star’s wand. I don’t exactly know what but she definitely signifies something bad will happen and/or she might have something to do with what happened between Moon and Toffee, she is after all the Queen of Darkness. It’s possible! Come on! She married to become queen and gain power then eloped with a monster. She could’ve been the sword that tore apart Moon and Toffee’s friendship. She was queen before Moon could take her place so it kinda makes sense that she was still there when that scene happened. 

I’m kind of sad for Glossaryk though. He wasn’t even “tall enough for the ride” but he still saw them all no matter how wonderful or horrible it must have been. He looks so sad in the tapestries. He is the Princess’ adviser and guide/teacher when it comes to using their wand and magic but it’s clearly seen that he cannot change their decisions whether it be bad or wrong because they control their own destinies. He is merely a teacher, a guide, an observer in every generation. 

BUT HAVE YOU ALSO NOTICED THAT IN MOST OF THE TAPESTRIES, THERE WERE ALWAYS SOMETHING RELATED TO A MONSTER??? Star’s tapestry is already being woven therefore what is about to come might be already prophesied or can still be changed since not much of it has been certainly woven yet. The monster can be anyone: Toffee, Ludo or even Marco (I’m certain each of these 3 will play huge a role in Star’s destiny). 

We all know that STAR’S MAGIC IS UNDOUBTEDLY CONNECTED WITH HER EMOTIONS. AND THAT SHE HAS A UNKNOWING CRUSH TOWARDS MARCO. AND THAT THESE FEELINGS CREATE A GOOD EFFECT ON HER MAGIC. HE MAKES HER MAGIC GOOD, POWERFUL AND MAKE THEM WORK PROPERLY BEFORE SHE COULD FIX HER WAND. 

Hopefully what I fear won’t happen: that Marco will be the monster that Star has to face. It was seen in season 1 when Marco’s monster arm said that he will always be a part of Marco and that he will never truly be gone so that means that there IS something evil residing within Marco (as it is in everyone) BUT it just needs a trigger. 

(I’m anticipating these in the future episodes and after reading the Wiki fandom’s list of episodes synopsis on the future episodes I will look at Jackie for this. Maybe. She’s not evil but she might be one of the causes something bad to happen between Marco and Star’s friendship’s future. But I’m just putting her as a possibility because she’s a variable in this and not to fully pin this on her because other reasons could be Ludo, Toffee, Eclipsa, or even Miss Heinous.) 

STARCO FOREVER!!!! *FANGIRLS*

~~~More of this theory to develop in the future. We’ll just have to wait and see what ride they have in store for us. EXCITED FOR THE NEW EPISODES! WOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!! 

anonymous asked:

Which scenes made you think dennis returns mac's attraction/feelings? Do you have any masterposts you could link? I'm all for the idea but personally I haven't noticed him acting any differently toward Mac than he has the entire show, so I don't really see any tension that would need to come to a head. Especially since this show always sort of reverts to its natural order between each episode, aside from Mac coming out, regardless of what happens between characters in the ones before.

throughout the show, i would say dennis has shown that he’s just as dependent on mac as mac is on him. but unlike mac, i don’t think dennis knows how to handle these feelings. in the last few seasons, we’ve seen a lot of dennis saying he hates mac, which i’ve always interpreted as dennis’s way of trying to ignore how he might feel about mac - it’s easier to say he hates him than to admit any stronger feelings.

especially this season, i think we’ve seen hints of dennis returning mac’s feelings. we’ve seen dennis very obviously playing up his strip tease when he saw mac was watching. we’ve seen dennis get choked up over mac giving him a valentine’s day gift. they’ve been laying on the macdennis pretty strong this season, and with the fake dating scenario we have coming up in the finale, i do think it has to come to some sort of a head.

i hope this helped a little, but if anyone has a masterpost or any more examples/theories of dennis’s feelings, feel free to add on to this!

Homeworld Gem Placement in Parallel to the Crystal Gems

Happy New Year everyone! Hope all is well. As everyone is excited for the new StevenBomb, here is something I have noticed as I look back into one prediction I had a while back based on the order of appearance of the Homeworld Gems. To recap essentially I talked about how we had Lapis appearing first, then Peridot and finally Jasper and how it might correlates with the season and their arcs (in depth here: https://www.reddit.com/r/stevenuniverse/comments/3npmjo/season_3_jasper_arc/). As I look back now I have realized something, which goes back to the (in)famous scene back in the extended intro

As we know from the obvious noticed the placement of each of the Homeworld Gems in respect to the Crystal Gems. It may not be a big deal but I think this might be a clue to things to come. It is not so much we are gonna have a battle royale between the two parties (especially the way things are with Peridot now, it seems far from the truth) nor mere flashbacks (we never seen Yellow Diamond up in that point), I think the creators are trying to show some parallel or possible relationship/connection. Let us start of with Steven (to extend, Rose Quartz) and Yellow Diamond. There has been lots of speculation that the two are connected someway (with Rose was Pink Diamond; a comrade to YD or even a former friend) and while Steven is not the leader of the Crystal Gems, the fact he is technically a reincarnation of sorts of his mother makes them still. And what is YD? A leader herself as well. Not to mention the HW trio seem to have their eyes mostly on Steven (which we all know he has importance to them all). In short they are foils of each other.

Now let us look at the others. What is strange is we have Lapis above Garnet. You would think that the creators would place Jasper above Garnet instead as they had the fight in Peridot’s ship. But consider this. It is argued that of all the gems, the most powerful one besides Garnet is Lapis. With her hydrokinesis, Lapis is the only one that gave Garnet a run for her money. Jasper, while strong and put up a fight, was eventually got her ass kicked by Garnet. And consider this - Ruby and Sapphire are also like Lapis. Ruby has huge emotional outbursts, often brash in the situation and often not forgiving. Lapis is like this. Sapphire is a blue Gem and has a very elegant, dress design. And, what would you know, Lapis is that too.

So what about Jasper and Pearl? What would they have in common with each other? Well a lot actually. Both have a high amount respect for Rose as a warrior; both of them have disrespected the usage of fusion for their own personal gains; when things are not going down, they are very calm and collection. Yes, even Jasper has her moments of zen. And when they don’t, they get blinded in emotions. I will even argued as far as the emotional abuse they have endure. While there has been some evidence connecting Pearl and Lapis, the only thing they have in common is their devotion to Steven. Which is not really an argument, that is like saying Garnet and Jasper are similar as they are both physically strong.

We might have some episodes where Lapis and Garnet/Jasper and Pearl interact (we will definitely have Yellow Diamond and Steven interact big time no question about it). It won’t be “ship-teasing” but rather them connecting in some way that enhances/redeems Jasper and Lapis. Reason I say this is we have Peridot above Amethyst and look what happen. We have two characters who are small; they are often the comedic relief for the show, often upsetting other characters in the show; they have strong connections to the Kindergarten; none of them took art in the war; the fact “Too Far” heavily explore their relationship is itself a very compelling evidence for this parallel and possible interaction with a member of a party and their counterpart.

Even the order is compelling too from the intro. First is Garnet, then Amethyst, next is Pearl and finally Steven. And guess what we have from HW? First is Lapis, then Peridot, next is Jasper and finally Yellow Diamond.
