Origin

(I haven’t written fairy tail in forever so it might be ooc but this was just in my head so i HAD TO WRITE IT!)

Nalu~


“So… where did I come from?!” Iggy looked up wide-eyed at his father, who had just finished telling him the story of the dragon who he was named after.

“You?”

“Yeah!” Again, his wide eyes looked up at his father, who for some reason looked… embarrassed about something.

Natsu’s face turned red. Igneel might’ve explained a few things to him at that age (much of which he didn’t understand at the time), but that certainly didn’t mean he was going to explain this process to his own six-year-old.

He instead smiled nervously and scratched the back of his head.

“Luce!” Natsu called from the other room, and almost immedialty saw Plue’s gead sticking in the doorway.

“What is it?” Her voice was slightly frustrated, as if she was just in another writing streak, and her ideas might leave if she didn’t write them down soon.

Although her expression immedianlty changed after seeing her husband and child cuddling together.

“He wants to know where he came from!” Natsu laughed nonchalantly, as if he didn’t remember that exact night.

Lucy’s face turned red too, and Natsu laughed, but she composed herself soon after, and walked over to sit down with both of her boys.

“Well…” She slowly lifted her son into her lap. “What brought that question on?”

“Dad came from a dragon!”

“…a dragon?” She smiled questioningly at Natsu, and he smiled and shrugged in return.

“and you came from a castle!”

“…”

“Aye! It was so big, like she was a princess or something!” Happy chimed in, just flying into the door, seemingly waiting for the perfect chance to come in.

“Hey Happy!” Natsu smiled. “Lucy’s about to tell the story about where Iggy came from.”

“Fufufu… I know this one! Lemme tell it Lucy!”

“No.” She death-glared the exceed, and turned around to smile at her son.

“Well…!” Lucy took a second to compose her thoughts. “Right after your dad and I got married…”

Natsu showed off his ring to little Iggy.

“We decided we wanted a bigger family, so…”

“Fufufu this is the good part!”

“Shut it Stupid cat!”

Iggy laughed, and Natsu interrupted.

“She summoned her maid!”

“Yes! I summoned Virgo, and asked her to take me to the Celestial Realm!”

Iggy’s eyes sparkled.

“While there, I spent the day talking with all my friends!”

Plue finally walked over to them. “Pun, pun!”

Natsu stared for a second, and then suddenly lit up. “You’re right Plue!” He burst out. “She did talk to the giant moustache man!”

“The Celestial Spirit King!”

Little Iggy was all ears.

“I begged him for something that would make our family whole, and he blessed me with a baby!”

“And when she came home from the Spirit Realm, it was 8 months later!”

Lucy just stared at Natsu for a minute before looking back down at her son.

“Then we named him-”

“AFTER THE DRAGON~!”

“Right!”

“And we all loved him very much. the end.”

Iggy smiled.

That’s all he needed to know.

I’m crying. I’m sobbing. I just. I just finished Sword Art Online Abridged and I just…IT HAD 500% MORE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THAN THE ACTUAL FUCKING SHOW. LIKE, THEY LITERALLY REDID THE SHOW PERFECTLY PLOT-WISE BUT EVERYTHING ABOUT IT WAS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL.

Tldr: if you haven’t watched SAO yet, please don’t. Watch the abridged series. You get the SAME EXACT FUCKING SHOW, but it’s so much better.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how much noise Yang Xiao Long must make whenever she moves.

I mean…. 

New jacket? Zipper.

Boots? Zip ‘em up. 

New sleeve thingies? zIPPERS

ZIPPERS, BELT BUCKLES, WHO NEEDS A SCARF GET ME A TRAVEL PILLOW WITH A METAL BUCKLE..

ZIPPERS, ZIPPERS, AND MORE ZIPPERS.

And that’s ON TOP of a robo arm, to boot. 
Can you just imagine? Yang Xiao Long, charging into battle, and all her enemies can hear….

JANGLE JANGLE JANGLE JANGL E

This child has an obscene amount of metal on her, even if you don’t count the arm. 

latent-thoughts  asked:

In reference to Staircase shots of Tom/Loki from the Avengers... I'd like to say, any shots of him walking/running are a huge problem. The way he struts oozes so much swag that I have to take a moment to compose myself. I have never seen anyone walk so elegantly before, I don't know if I ever will. So yeah, that sinful walk of his is a problem all around. I wonder if others feel the same as well.

Ugh.

Yes.

The really terrible aspect of the problem is that there are dialects of the walking across his stage and screen work and even in real life.

Shall we examine a few of them?

*dons lab coat*

Regarding Loki, the aforementioned Staircase shots have sort of a smooth gliding feeling, whereas there is a lot more shoulder attitude and back and forth head movement in other scenes.  Think a peacock vibe.

The Loki In Chains strut is more subdued, more purposely controlled (for the obvious reasons…).

There are also variations within the character of Jonathan Pine.  The Night Manager himself is an authoritative, efficient stride, not one of bravado or pride.

This one is very careful, not exactly tentative, just highly alert and subtle.

And let’s be real here, the Jack Linden version is simply a “Mine is bigger than yours and I know how to use it” message.

And Coriolanus.  Let’s not forget our darling Murder Machine Martius.

CONFESSION:           

 I started playing DA right as DA:I was released. I started with Origins and fell in love. My bf, though a ME lover, wasn’t interested in DA. So for 3 years I played over and over. He just bought the ultimate edition of DA:O on Steam and he is loving it! So now he and I can bond even more bc I got him into DA and he got me into ME <3

Haven/Fowl Manor Theme

Wow, looks like people really liked the first Artemis Fowl music I made. SO, i spent the whole day today making another song (And because @nacreous-quasar​‘s tags convinced me to :D). This one reminds me of haven/fowl manor, as you can see. The digital-sounding parts are more Haven, the rest is mostly Fowl Manor. 

In case you’re wondering, yes, the singing in the background is me.

I thought he was generally hated for being a disrespectful punk originally, granted I haven’t read anything with Jason as robin. Why do you think he was hated for being poor? It’s not like Dick came from a wealthy family either. This is an honest question cause I’ve never heard that one till now. And of course dc aimed to create a character that would be liked and resonate with their audience,

…. are you… serious? It is common knowledge and a facet of comic history that classism was a defining aspect to why Jason was mistreated.

“Denny O'Neil described Jason as “an arrogant little snot” on more than one occasion, citing his rough, slangy speech and abrasive personality as reasons why the character had earned himself such a grim fate. Contrast this disruptive, unruly force with the well-spoken character of Tim. Where Jason was homeless and orphaned, Tim is from a wealthy family – his father can afford to buy an Erte lithograph. And Tim is very much an educated child: he reads Art World Today.”

-Mary Borsellino, A lot like Robin if you close your eyes: Displacement of meaning in the Post-Modern Age.

Robin!Jason was consistently a respectful sweetheart, only acting out when triggered by the abuse of women or children. He was retroactively victim blamed and smeared so DC could cover their asses and justify killing off a child, which did have backlash.

Jason didn’t die because he disobeyed. He died because he went to save his mother (what ANYONE would have done) and she betrayed him. He was murdered and it wasn’t his fault, and the fact that you think he was a brat goes to show that DC’s attempt to cover their tracks by shitting on a child from poverty succeeded.
