idk where all this pining keith on my dash is coming from but it’s improving my shitty mood so
keith will force himself to think only of lance when he falls asleep so he’ll dream about him (it works but sometimes he thinks of bigfoot at the same time and the resulting dream is… strangely satisfying)
whenever lance touches keith’s shoulder or puts his arm on his shoulder or something keith doesn’t show any outward reaction but on the inside he’s replaying that moment over and over and over again all day
everytime lance gets shot down by an alien, keith makes a joke but on the inside he’s like thank god
keith doesn’t know who to talk to about all this; pidge is 14, hunk is lance’s best friend and would probably tell him, shiro is his older bro and would probably make fun of him. so keith keeps a journal (@platonicsheith‘s ideastbh) but he also mentions it to allura one day and she’s willing to listen because Gossip Queen™ and so he starts rambling about how pretty and funny lance is to her. she doesn’t really mind because she likes seeing Mr Broody Loner so happy
when lance is injured in battle or something, keith is the first to volunteer to carry him or support him while he walks
they go to an alien planet full of flowers and keith gets lost in the flower field immediately (bc what if he finds a cryptid in there) and gets the idea to do the “he loves me, he loves me not” things. he also cheats so the last petal will always fall on “he loves me”
when they get together and lance asks keith for a kiss, fucking fireworks are going off in that boy’s head and he leans in for the most chaste fucking peck on the corner of the mouth but it still feels amazing and when he pulls back lance is smiling really wide and keith is just full of happiness

I barely know about Homestuck from what friends have talked to me. My sodiac sign is cancer, so Karkat is the first to come in my mind. It’s the first time i draw something about Homestuck and this is the best i did, hope you like it because i did ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).
I honestly feel like David is one of the best actors in the show. He makes Raphael. If you read the books, I wouldn’t have every really imagined Raphael this way. David goes above and beyond. He does a certain walk as Raphael, he even has a voice that he does. If you notice he has weird movements he does. He doesn’t just play the character with his voice or his face. He uses his whole body. And tbh, it’s impressive af. I felt like all the characters, beside Jace and Raphael, are exactly how I pictured them in the books. Which is fine but I am surprised and happy with the way Raphael and Jace turned out. And even though I’d like to see Raphael every episode, I get that by putting him in only half the episodes makes fans look forward to seeing him. I think Raphael is so fun because you can’t always tell how he fits into the story. I think we can all imagine how all the other characters will act and where there stories will go. I can predict exactly what all the other characters will do but I can’t always predict what they will make Raphael do and that is why he is such an important character.
by request ( @hatoratomoen and @senatormellie ), here’s what i have to say about seeing Hamilton (Chicago version).
- it was surreal to see something performed irl that you know, like, every single word to, y’know? super surreal. in the best way possible.
- The Room Where It Happens just….totally blew me away. Like the whole musical did, tbh, but that one 500% especially. I’ve seen a lot of musical theater in my time & a handful of broadway shows, and this just. The singing, acting, lighting, choreography, all of it were fucking phenomenal & I’ve never been that INTO a song EVER. It was SO so so good.
- hamilton has a v nice voice, i like him
- lafayette / jefferson’s played by a college junior?? so talented and young and good and im jealous
- hamilton and laurens touched each other a lot
- i cried two times - once when phillip died (after he stopped responding eliza kinda half collapsed and screamed into his shirt and i had a Lot of Feelings), and then at the end (partly bc the orphanage, and mostly just because i was so totally overwhelmed with how good the whole musical is and how much i love it)
any other / more specific questions, just let me know and i’ll try my best to answer :)
I can’t understand how Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu does that.
tbh I just can’t.
We’re so used to mediocrity that we are astounded once we see perfection, or near-perfection at its best. Perhaps the best series out there managed, at best, to maintain their quality over time. SGRS doesn’t; it makes it better.
I can’t understand how, every single week, the episode is better than the previous one. I don’t know how this is even remotely possible, seeing that every single episode of this show is a masterpiece.
I remember how I fell, head over heels, with SGRS Season 1 Episode 1 - which was the longest ep in airing time (40 min). I was in awe. I was so busy back then to be able to watch anime, but I kept battling myself to find the time to watch it. And from then onward, every episode that aired was better than the former… as if this is a constant wave of success and achievement.
Once it ended, and a season 2 was announced, I was so worried. I was worried that the majesty of season 1 would be ruined by a half-arse season 2. Boi was I wrong. Ep 1 of season 2 was better, far more superior, than any ep of season 1. From then on, everything kept on improving… the music, the animation, the story, the twists, the cliffhangers, the characterization, the emotions. Everything.
I can’t believe it does it with such a humble modesty. I can’t believe how easy it makes everything sounds. I can’t believe how it is so smooth and easy for it to make us chock and suffer more than we did in the previous week… I can’t believe how simple it is for the series to make our emotions heightens more deeply with every episode, and every revelation.
I can’t believe, that even though every episode comes loaded with emotional pain that can barely be tolerated in real life, it does so so realistically, so beautifully, so humbly, that it takes our breathe away.
tbh - I don’t know how it does it.
and tbh - I can’t see something that can match such an outstanding performance in the series that aired in the past few years, or that are currently airing.
How Elena and Stefan could possibly be endgame in the finale, aka my “sired soul” theory...
Elena in 4x01 spent her last dying breaths as a human to tell
Stefan that she loves him and how he is the best choice she ever made.
does one go from saying all of that and simply fall out of love so quick?
(Without having to say it was due to bad writing or fan servicing, because if I
was a DE fan I would be pretty pissed off at the way they brought them
together.) Be warned this is kinda long!
Well what if when Elena was transitioning into a vampire (during
the first few episodes of season 4), her human soul was slowly being replaced
by a new vampire one created by the sire bond and this new soul is basically a
reflection of the desires of the soul to whom she was sired to aka Damon. She
still appeared to be in love with Stefan the first few episodes but it also
seemed like her old self was slowly fading away along with her feelings, (basically
all her good qualities which made her who she was). What if the sired soul made
her more like Damon and obviously made her do Damon-like things? Because let’s face it Elena from season 4 on wards was a completely new character/person.
The reason why
this could have happened was because firstly Elena never wanted to be a vampire and also maybe and probably more likely because when she died
at the end of season 2 John gave Elena his soul, a soul that replaced Elena’s
so that when she woke up it would be as a human and not a vampire (as that was
what John had wanted). So when she died at the end of season 3, her soul which
John gave her didn’t want to accept the transition into a vampire hence a new vampire
sired soul was born, giving her basically new and all the annoying qualities
that Damon had.
This could explain how her feelings for Stefan never got
heightened, because deep down in Damon’s soul he didn’t want Elena to be in
love with Stefan. He wanted Elena to love him instead. Elena said she still
loved Stefan, but she was not actually in love with him. Wouldn’t that be basically
just how Damon feels about his own brother, right?
Otherwise it just wouldn’t
make sense from a story pov, not a shipper’s but a story pov how Elena just
kinda forgot this strong built relationship she had with Stefan.
Now here is my opinion on the only way I see Stelena possibly as endgame based
on all of this because I wouldn’t want the vampire Elena to get back with
Stefan, especially after all the shit she put him through (that would be so selfish and
Stefan deserves much better).
When Elena took the cure, she didn’t appear
to have any significant changes to her character she was just a human again right (although she did kinda flirt with Stefan at the wedding)? However Elena was only a human for a few days/weeks (few episodes, just like in the
beginning of season 4) before Kai cast the Sleeping Beauty type spell on her.
So what if after all these years while Elena was in that coffin (cause we have no idea what happened in her mind during all this time), her human soul slowly came back, the same soul which was very much in love with Stefan even after testing the waters with Damon (who I personally saw as a metaphor for temptation/being greedy)?
And when she wakes up the last thing she remembers clearly is telling Stefan that she chose him (whilst she was transitioning) but her memories of them as a couple as they were slowly breaking up are fuzzy/blurred because that wasn’t actually her.
Then Stefan realises that Elena 2.0 was never the girl he fell in love with but just a walking reminder of her and that his Elena from seasons 1-3 would never hurt him/break his heart like new vampire Elena did.
After this Stelena then have one of their epic reunion hugs and just stare at each other like they can’t believe they are in each others arms again and they finally kiss and slowly slip back into their old feelings/lives. Oh and Stefan takes the cure and is human again too.
And basically Damon all along had never been with Elena but has been in a weirdly twisted relationship with a version of himself essentially in the vessel/meat suit (had to use the spn references) of old Elena. It’s kinda disturbing but that’s kinda the only explanation I have for ‘who the hell was Damon dating then if it weren’t Elena?’. Plus his reaction could be funny!?
As for SC to not be a thing anymore, I hope Klaus comes back for Caroline and reminds her of this moment and boom no more sc wedding or a divorce.
But yeah that’s mainly my opinion/theory for a human Stelena endgame if I could write it! :)
I think my favorite thing about the ending of episode 10 is that all of it reminds me of one of those super cliche endings in a rom-com. First, we have the song- it just sounds like one of those super catchy songs they put at the end of those cheesy movies. And then of course the photos that are reeled through the credits (that are usually from a wedding reception) except this is a skating banquet with a stripper’s pole, but it might as well be a wedding reception tbh.
BUT THE BEST PART, is that this ending reel in episode 10 doesn’t show the end of a rom-com
Hi Nat! I'm currently fanficing and I can't find anywhere the location of where the Stark family home is/was? Has it ever been mentioned where Tony was raised? Was it implied to be Malibu? I always assumed Tony built the Malibu house himself. If it hasn't been mentioned where would be your instinct to set it? Seeing as you know his character best. I'm deferring to your judgement. Thank you!
i don’t think it was ever mentioned in the mcu tbh? or if it was, it might have been hinted at during one of the agent carter seasons or something, i wouldn’t know because i zoned out so b a d during the parts that had anything to do with howard. if i remember this right the starks do have a new york residence that appeared on the show. anyway according to the official SHIELD file (which i take with a grain of salt because ah yeah marvel and general consistency…. lol the file is missing the one non-english language tony actually spoke on screen also the eternal 1970 birth year vs 1991 stark death year Problem… mmmmm anyway) (hello click moi) the birth place is listed as manhattan
me, personally, specifically, an Intellectual, nowadays when i rp my personal mcu/616 mix tony,
born in new york (personally i go with long island because i am a 616 Tony Stark Whore)
again, as a 616 Tony Stark Whore and most importantly as someone who obsessively projects my personal experiences on this character i choose to believe he moved around a lot while growing up (and by “growing up” i mean ages 0 to 7 because lol howard low key booted him out after that lmao anyway). some of my fav 616 iron man stories (vol. 3) took place in seattle and miami so i tell myself that baby tony spent some time on each of those places. the Main Home was in new york though (aka the house he’d come back to during school breaks or whatever) but his parents weren’t necessarily there
when he was seven, he technically relocated full-time to andover, MA because that’s where “phillips academy” is (aka the Boarding School, listed on the file linked above)
cambridge, MA during his MIT years, obviously
the way my personal timeline works out, tony finishes his comicbook-genius-grade levels of UNREALISTICALLY AND UNCANNILY FAST bachelor’s+doctorates combo when he’s 19
then he heads off to london (the “Abroad” mentioned by maria on cap 3) to get his MBA from the london business school aka one of the most prestigious in the world
december of that year, his parents die
tony moves to california out of sheer force of a) grief-stricken desperation (since california is like literally as physically distant as you can get from new york within US borders) and b) unadulterated futurism because tbh tony’d been telling people since f o r e v e r that the silicon valley was going to become off-the-charts important very soon so that was a good place for the HQ of stark industries to be set
the starks already had a los angeles residence but yes. yes. the malibu mansion was a Tony Stark Acquisition (like oh my god the things…. the THINGS AND THOUGHTS that the IM1 production crew put into the design of that mansion tbh… i have the Art of IM1 book… listen…. LISTEN…. send me a reminder so i can share some Important Facts with the world later when i’m less busy/lazy i’m just gonna say…. the house was designed… as a Character Statement i’m dying this is exactly why IM1 is the True iron man movie)
anyway, over the years, tony clearly gravitates between new york and california
ask me about my feelings re: tony’s New Yorker ™ bitterness and nostalgia while he’s in los angeles. and then also ask me about tony’s Californian ™ longing while he’s in new york. ask me about tony stark + found homes + the feeling of being eternally Misplaced (and i will one more time call this me being a 616 Tony Stark Whore [616 tony stark, aka mister Tragic Nostalgia] AND a creatively bankrupt piece of shit that projects her personal conflicts onto tony stark)
