As much as I’m liking the dinamic of Cain and Harriet, it won’t last. If @victoriasugden‘s theories are correct and moira end up pregnant and tbh i’m really beliving that theory, then we all know who’s the dad and that will brought them back together.

Tedros understood that the battle between Sophie and Agatha was significant. He understood that this wasn’t his story and that it was theirs instead. He could accept that Agatha had struggled between what was Good and what felt right. He had felt a similar struggle, and at the end had been able to choose something that felt both right and Good: Agatha.
He hadn’t been joking with her when he said that physical cues were helpful. They had certainly had a history of miscommunication and he admitted that most of it was his fault. Still, though, she chose to stay with him and care for him. She chose to love him, and Tedros had never felt so thankful to have another human being’s affection in his whole life. The new struggle was articulation, non-verbal or otherwise, and this struggle was one that Tedros felt particularly in the weeks leading up to his princess’ birthday.
Over the last 2 days, I have spoken a lot with @fit-physicist about my (mental) health when it comes to eating and exercising. Those of you who follow him have probably seen his post about more body positivity and less perfectionism - meanwhile, I am struggling with the complete opposite of that. More perfection - more yes to good things and no to bad things. Except I am not so good with good and bad when it comes to health.. And go into an extreme overdrive.
HOWEVER. I have thought about this for some time now and I’ve decided to set up a few goals for 2017 (january where you at).
run 100km: this year has roughly 250 days left in which I can run (officially 278 but I’m thinking about birthdays, trips, stuff like that). I would “have to” run 400 meters every day. Or 2km every 5 days. Or, put easily, 2.8km every week. It’s a small goal, but it’ll get me running. [update: @fit-physicist just stole my goal BUT we’re now gonna do it together c: ]
Have a quick 30 minute yoga session each week (next to my normal yoga class)
Lift once a week (more if I can make it)
Before you think ‘but.. didn’t you wanna take it slow?’ (looking at you D).. I don’t have these goals so I HAVE to live up to them,. I have them to motivate me.
Most of all, I have to learn that things happen, and if I can’t make it once every now and then, I should learn that move on and not quit the entire goal beause a part of it didn’t work out for one time.
I was wondering, what are your top 15 reds? Since we had at least 41 seasons of them so far.
That’s a good question and one I’ve never really thought of before. Red isn’t generally my favorite out of the heroes of any show. He tends to get too much of the focus or be too perfect. Or worse, he eats up all of the screen time and makes the rest of his team suffer. That doesn’t mean reds from these situations are necessarily bad characters, they just don’t feel right in a Sentai series where the focus should be on the team, not on any one character.
I am NOT going to include Akared because he has no out of suit form and is more of a conceptual character, being the embodiment of the the spirit of all reds. He’s cool but doesn’t really belong on this list.
So, let’s get started. Remembers, these are just my opinion and if you think I left someone important out or ranked someone too low, my apologies. This is a highly subjective list and all but the top spots could change daily depending on how I am feeling and what I am watching at the time.
With that said, let’s get started!
15. Daigo Kiryu/Kyoryu Red
I am putting the leader of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger this low on the list because he is the poster child for the problems I noted above. He is the focus character, the one who gets the lion’s share of the story, he gets a power up only he can use and he’s the one who gets force shipped with the team’s only main female member (and the one the other female characters seem to want to be with). This would normally disqualify him from the list but I can’t help but like him. He’s fun, energetic and a bit dense. I also love his series, despite myself.
14. Ryusuke Ohwashi/Vul Eagle I
The first leader of Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan, might not be the most memorable leader but his team is one of my favorites. He’s still a good leader and the balance between the sometimes overly serious Vul Shark and the goofball Vul Panther.
Hiromu Sakurada/Red Buster
Though not my favorite series, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters is highly underrated among a large chunk of the fandom. I love the costumes, the designs, the mecha and the villains. Hiromu may come across as kind of a blunt, over serious jerk but he has his reasons and it feels natural and not forced. He also works REALLY well with his team and the core group of three feel at times more like family than teammates.
12. Sasuke/Ninja Red
The only Red on this list who is NOT the leader of his team, Sasuke makes the list for his unique position and his character growth (and because Ninja Sentai Kakuranger is my favorite series ever). He starts out as a shiftless drifter with no sense of personal responsibility who ends up releasing the Youkai Army from its centuries long sleep. He learns though and becomes a better person, even working his way up to second in command of the team after Tsuruhime/Ninja White. By the end, he has the makings of a capable leader.
Ryu Tendoh/Red Hawk
Another bird-themed Red to make the list (there will be more, trust me) Red Hawk is the leader and center of Choujin Sentai Jetman. He is the one member of the team picked from the beginning and he brings a sense of military discipline to his rather ragtag team. He also brings a profound sense of loss, having watched his fiance get sucked into space in the initial attack only to discover later that she was turned into an enemy by the villainous Vyram. He is also, unfortunately, part of the series’ love triangle.
Nobuo Akagi/Akiba Red
Wait a second, how did this guy get on my list? This unofficial stuff has no place here! Oh, wait, yes he does because Nobuo is an awesome Red! He uses his encyclopedic knowledge of Super Sentai to guide his team through the pitfalls of villainous plots, standard tropes and the sometimes overwhelming power of their own delusions! That alone earns him a place on this list as one of the best and most memorable Sentai reds, official or not.
Takayuki Hiba/Vul Eagle II
Yep, two Reds from the same series! The only series to ever swap Reds mis-seasons (with the joking exception of Hikounin Sentai Akibaranger) Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan made a change for the better with the second Vul Eagle. He was a colleague of the former Eagle and took his place on the team with the first went off to join NASA. He brought with him a slightly more serious attitude and a mastery of Kendo, using a sword in combat in addition to the weapons of his predecessor.
Ryo of the Heavenly Fire Star/RyuuRanger
The fourth member to join Gosei Sentai Dairanger, Ryo is the first to get his Mystical Chi Beast and quickly proves himself an apt leader. He is also a cook and delivery boy for a local Chinese Restaurant and dreams of making the best gyoza in Japan! He is awakened to his heritage as a member of the Dai tribe and uses his proficiency in Dragon Fist style martial arts to battle the Gorma.
Shirō Gō/Red One
The man who was supposed to pilot Japan’s first Space Shuttle mission, his life is forever changed when the New Empire Gear attacks. Finding out he is the descendant of those bathed in Bio Particles centuries ago, Shiro becomes Red One, the leader of Choudenshi Bioman. He is a passionate leader burning with a sense of justice and feels a great sense of responsibility not only to the Earth but also to his teammates.
6. Right/ToQ 1gou
I expect this to be one of my more contentious choices, especially given how high up on the list he is. Despite falling prey to some of my pet peeves (taking too much focus from the other characters, getting a power up for his own use) I cannot help but love Right. He’s a great character and so much fun with his (understandably) childish nature and optimistic outlook. He might not be the most seasoned or mature leader but he’s got a vision for victory second to none!
Takeru Shiba/Shinken Red
If you were to look up stoic in the Sentai Dictionary, Takeru Shiba’s picture would be there. His usually cool, calm demeanor hides his overwhelming sense of responsibility not only for the fate of the world but for the secret he has to keep. He is not entirely comfortable with others fighting and putting their lives on the line for his sake and does not hesitate to enter into battle first, no matter the risk to himself. He grows as a leader as the series progresses to the point where any one of his teammates would willingly give their lives for him not out of a sense of duty but out of respect.
Yusuke Amamiya/Red Falcon
The leader of Choujuu Sentai Liveman, Yusuke shares the sense of loss the rest of the team does because of the murder of their friends and betrayal by their fellow students. Though he is a serious leader, the loss has not made him hard but instead instilled in him a need for justice and to protect the lives and hopes of those still alive.
Prince of the Yamato Tribe and leader of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, Geki is an all around great guy. He’s a superb fighter, an expert swordsman and possessed of a sense of Justice second to none. He cannot stand evil, those who would hurt others or anyone who puts children in danger. He may be royalty (by adoption) but he never acts like he is above anyone else.
There is NO way I could do this list without including the original Red Warrior. Heck, I would not be able to live with myself if I didn’t have him on this list. Just look at the name of my blog! Tsuyoshi is the standard by which all Sentai leaders should be judged. He is a great fighter, a good leader, a selfless hero and pretty much the pinnacle of what a Sentai red should be. There is only one who really beats him in my opinion.
1. Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red
When I think of Sentai Reds, the first person who comes to mind is this Pirate Captain from 2011. Captain Marvelous is everything I love in a Red. He’s a good character on his own, leads his team well and doesn’t get in the way of the personal growth of his teammates or totally dominate the narrative. He gets enough focus to be the central character without feeling like the entire story is all about him. That, in my opinion, makes him the best Red we’ve ever seen.
He’s also a snappy dresser and kind of a jerk at times.
So, there you go! My 15 favorite reds (as of this point). As I said before, this list could change at any time and some might get themselves booted if they aren’t LUCKY!
welp, i’m now on antidepressants again. i haven’t taken them since a teen, as a teen they made me worse. hopefully they help this time!
blood work also looked perfect, doctor seems to think i’m healthy as a horse other than my chronic migraines/sleep issues (she wants me to get an mri for them, but idk if my insurance covers it.) she also wants me to get blood work done again next month in case i do have a thyroid issue. i have to have a pelvic exam to have birth control again (i take birth control for pcos/period issues), but i’ll be getting that next week. hopefully that goes well, too.
i’m… i’m honestly shocked about my blood work results. i’ve been terrified of being at least pre-diabetic or something, since it runs in my family. but nope! not even close. i mean, i eat very healthy most of the time (especially now that i’m trying to lose weight), so i guess it shouldn’t shock me so much… it’s just my chubby weight has all that ridiculous stigma attached to it. :/ doc doesn’t seem worried at all about my weight, she just wants my migraines checked out and wants me on antidepressants. chubby, cute (ish), AND (sorta) healthy, look out plebs.
Hey, remember that aloof and clinical detective bloke who used to live here at 221b? You know, the tall one with the unshakable grip on his emotions and actions? Haven’t seen him around in a while. Though there seems to be a new chap living here now. Weirdly similar looks, yet wearing his heart on his sleeve.
Honestly, though, I have never seen our favourite sociopath like this.
While John was getting ready for work, Sherlock made tea for him. He timed it, so it would be at perfect drinking temperature when John got out of the shower, freshly dressed. John
gawked at the steaming cup on the kitchen table and mumbled out a bewildered thank you, which Sherlock accepted with a nervous nod, before scuttling back into the living room with his own mug. John blinked after him. Then he took a careful sniff of the tea, shrugged and went about making breakfast.
Sherlock even send him off with a small smile and told him to have fun at work. John’s reaction was priceless. He froze, one arm in his jacket, one arm out of it, brow furrowed and eyes wide. A beat of silence. So Sherlock cleared his throat and quickly turned back to his work, pretending nothing unusual had just occurred. John looked a bit dazed when he finally managed to slip his second arm into his jacket and left.
Right now, Sherlock is trying to work the case while simultaneously talking to the room at large, as if he was rehearsing a play.
S: It has come to my attention…no.
He shakes his head, licks his lips and tries again.
S: Over the past several weeks, I have come to realise…
With a grunt he leans onto the crate in front of him, hands coming up to ruffle his curls in frustration and lets out a loud huff of air.
After a couple of seconds, he straightens back up, pulls in a reassuring breath and gives it one more go.
S: John. My previous statements regarding our relationship may have been somewhat hasty from my side. So I was wondering, if you could find it within yourself, if you might consider…
He squeezes his eyes shut, trying for patience, but his voice turns mocking when he speaks again.
S: …if you might consider to run off to join the circus to get away from your idiot of a flatmate? Oh, for god’s sake!
He slams his current book shut and emerges from behind the wall of boxes to start pacing. After a couple of steps in each direction, his feet seem to get stuck on the carpet. His head snaps up, eyes wide and sparkling with a new idea.
With a clap of his hands, he twirls around and dashes over to his laptop.
I get this feeling that yg has a perfectionist personality. I have read before (i may be wrong) that he pushed back the release of his mixtape rather than rm was chosen to release his first (pls enlighten me on this). Nevertheless, he is min pd so he spent a looot of time perfecting that tape which he entirely produced. My point is, yg has a full control of the things he wants to do. Rather than receiving opportunities, he is the type to initiate things. And i believe collabs are not his thing.
My next post (after this) is for you, anon. :)
And yes, our Min Yoongi is a perfectionist to a fault… he even said that if he would only release music after he is fully satisfied with it, then none of the music we listen to from him would exist.
My sister also thinks that Yoongi would be pickier with collabs compared to Namjoon. But even so, Yoongi has people he looks up to, people he hopes to work with.
And until Yoongi gets the opportunity to work with those people… I’ll be praying for it and waiting with bated breath. =D
Daddy Stephen, I know this is really stupid but i found out I failed math today and my teacher quite literally threw my paper at me. Oh wells so I laughed about it and made jokes about my grade but later during break, I had a really good cry in the loo so no one really knows what happened. Could I have a cuddle please?
“Don’t worry, not everything can be perfect at times.” *pulls you close and kisses your temple* “But, to me you are perfect.”
