My favourite thing about the latest LLSS S2 episode is this scene right here.
Not because of anything deep and meaningful just because I remember going around this bus stop when I was in Izu.
I turned to the straight white boy who followed me and was like “Uhhhh I’m pretty sure this is the wrong bus I don’t think it’s going the right way.” and he was like “Nah it’s probably fine.”
Then 10 minutes later we went past this same fucking bus stop again and I was like uUUHHHHHHHHH?????? and so this bus circled around this fucking bus stop twice and I was staring out the window at this place like “why are we back here again where are we I have no idea anymore” and people were sitting on those bench/chairs to the left staring back at us like .____.
At the end of the line the bus driver didn’t make us pay the full fare because we were very obviously lost so that was nice at least. But y’all I cant believe LLSS gave me PTSD flashbacks because of a fucking bus stop.
He doesn’t consider himself a novelist, for the concept seems so banal and academic. Academia was never something he feigned interest in, for prose does not fall so violet-tinged and as vast the oceanic deep — no. His words are far more clear and concise, for he wishes to reach in mass, to portray a story rather than repaint the ugly truth with flowery symbolism.
For the idea of storytelling is a much more appealing one, one that he feels allows the people access to their own narratives. Still — he knows he’s a liar, exuberance is a style of his, but it’s something as there was twenty men instead of five ( a detail one would not typically see – unless the story is being told orally to a pretty barmaid while he was a bit tipsy ).
He’s a storyteller, an orator – perhaps a poet and sometimes academic, but never a novelist. Always a writer.
Sanji wanted some revenge after the gang teased him about his breakup (viola left him at a mc donalds lol) so he put sleeping pills to their dinner. And soooooo, when everyone fell asleep…this happened
ALRIGHT BRACE YOURSELVES BECAUSE THIS IS A LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG POST (literally, 40 images)
I’M SO SORRY PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEASE FORGIVE MEEE THIS IS SO LONG OMG I’m sure y’all gonna be like WHAT BITCH PLEASE I AIN’T READING THIS THING but GIVE IT A GO I SWEEAR IT’S WORTH IT
Here to remind you that lesbian is a good word. Being a lesbian is a good thing. Lesbians are good, especially trans lesbians and lesbians of color. Sometimes it hurts to be a lesbian. Sometimes it feels so bad. But being a lesbian is a good thing.
i love op because there are chapter titles that sound rlly deep and poetic like “things that can’t be faked”, “meeting a broken moon through the clouds”, “he who must live to see a new age” and “being dead isn’t an apology”
and then there are chapter titles that are pop culture references, like “for whom the bell tolls” and “the times they are a-changin”
but then we also have shit like “usopp’s great manly adventure”, “wow, that’s nice”, “naked but great”, “not the afro”, “so disgusting it makes me fly” and chapter 667, which is just titled in all caps and in english “COOL FIGHT”
i also have to give a shout out to chapter 574: “portgas d. ace dies”. because, i mean, at least he was up front about it.
