pointless worry

if i have any sixteen year olds following me…… ur gonna change so fucking much just worry about doing your best and having fun nothing else matters 

And any voices in our heads?
There might be voices in our heads
But I swear, the voices there
Will be the regular kind

(and there’s still voices in jeremy’s head, but louder than them, louder than the voices telling him everything he’s doing wrong, why he’s doomed, why he’s going to die alone, is michael’s voice in his ears, telling him everything he does right, why he deserves everything, why he loves him.)

(and maybe that doesn’t drown it out; maybe he can still hear those voices in the back of his head, but michael is there. he’s there, and he’s laughing, and jeremy’s chest tingles with warmth - and it helps. michael is there, and he loves him, and he helps.)

(and that’s all jeremy could ever ask for.)

can i get uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh a soft boyf riends content

I don’t chase people anymore,” she said, turning up the collar of her jacket against the freezing cold, “either they want to stay or they don’t.” He handed her a cup of coffee, gently brushing her fingers, so lightly it might as well have been an accident.
“Sometimes you have to chase people for a while, just to make sure they know how you feel about them,” he replied. She rolled her eyes, taking a sip of hot coffee and burning her tongue. “That’s just stupid.”
A knowing smile formed on his lips as he watched her. “See, there are a lot of people like you,” his smile widened while her face transformed into a scowl, “people who are always on the run and unaware of what others might feel for them. Unaware that they make someone else’s heart race, that they make their days brighter and their worries seem pointless. It’s people like you that I need to chase because you’re always too far gone before I can hold on to you, and quite frankly, I’m tired of chasing, too.
—  “So do you want to stay?”

anonymous asked:

Could you , please, write a number 5 PLEASE "wait a minute. Are you jealous?" Feyre or Rhys, I love them both so is your choice

5. “Wait a minute. Are you jealous?!”  

“Wait a minute. Are you jealous?!”  

Feyre couldn’t help it, her whole face split in a grin. She couldn’t believe this was happening.

Rhys just huffed, not even looking at her but instead burying his nose deeper into the book he was reading. She could swear she saw a hint of red coloring his cheeks, confirming her claim.

“Don’t be ridiculous, Feyre darling. Of course not.”

Oh, this was priceless. Her mate sure as hell was jealous. Feyre bit her lip, trying to keep the laughter in but the way Rhys’ jaw clenched told her he was feeling her amusement over the bond. His own feelings were locked away tightly but she didn’t need to feel them to know they were there, precisely because he’d locked her out. He knew he was acting ridiculous but it seemed he could do nothing against it. So Feyre decided to add a bit of fuel to the fire.

She lifted the tiny reason her mate was acting so absurd and whispered into its ear “Do you see that, Illyrian? The big grumpy High Lord of the Night Court is jealous of you.”

Rhys’ head snapped towards her, his face a mixture of horror and disbelief.

“You will NOT name that thing Illyrian!”

“Why not? He has black hair and is proud and stubborn just like all the Illyrians I know. A lot better behaved, though.”

“We are NOT keeping that thing!”

“It’s not a thing, Rhys. Illyrian is a cat. And what a cute little kitty you are,” she purred at the kitten. Illyiran meowed from his new spot on her lap, purring back as she scratched his head.  

“You are just jealous you’re not the only male in the house being petted anymore.”  

“I am not jealous! Especially not of that … thing.”

“What exactly do you have against cats, Rhysand?”

He just glared at her. Feyre rolled her eyes and got up from her chair to cross the room and walk towards her mate, Illyrian the kitten pressed against her chest. Rhys followed her every movement, eyes fixated on the tiny creature in her arms. Without much fanfare, Feyre picked the book from his hands and settled in her High Lord’s lap. As if they had a mind of their own, his hands settled on her hip, holding her in place. Feyre leant forward, her lips brushing over Rhys’.

“Don’t worry,” she whispered against them. “You will still always be my favorite Illyrian.”

“Half-Illyrian,” he grumbled but let her deepen the kiss anyway.  

Feyre could feel him relax against her and for a moment, she was sure she had won. That was, until Rhys suddenly jumped up, having her almost fall to the floor with a yelp while Illyrian hissed.

“What the hell, Rhys?!”

“That … thing tried to claw my wings!”

For a second she could do nothing but stare at him.

“It’s a kitten, Rhys! He hardly has claws!”

“It is evil!”

Illyrian hissed again. Oh, this was so not helping.


“No, Feyre, no. I will not have that … that evil creature in this house, anywhere near my wings! Get rid of it! Give it to Amren so she can eat it for all I care!”

And with that, the High Lord of the Night Court stormed off, leaving his incredulous mate behind. Illyrian meowed and started purring again. Feyre looked down at the small black cat.  

“Illyrians,” she told him. “Are such sensitive babies when it comes to their wings. But don’t worry, small one. Our High Lord is just jealous. I make sure to pet him properly tonight and pay special attention to his wings so he doesn’t feel so threatened by you anymore.”

Illyrian just meowed again.

Back and forth and back and forth…under his lids, his eyes darted back and forth until he finally woke up. Darkness blanketed the entirety of the room rendering Yoongi completely disoriented. He sat up in his bed and rubbed his forehead, his sweat left a thin layer of residue on his palm. Nothing but a pitch darkness could be seen. 

What time is it? It must be the middle of the night…

Waking during the night hours was always a problem for him. While he could easily find himself a spot and spontaneously nap virtually anywhere during the day, night was completely different. Once woken up, it was almost impossible for him to go back to sleep. He thought that talking until he was tired again was the solution. Even in the middle of the night, he’d sometimes show up at one of his other friend’s houses if none of the other members were awake. Talking did help. In fact, that was his go-to solution for years…but it only really worked well when he spoke with a certain person.

Why hate on the Two Ciels Theory when it makes perfect plot twist?

 After last chapter I’ve seen more and more people upset about the possibility that the person pointing gun at Soma could be the real Ciel Phantomhive , and honestly I would be more than glad if it turns out to be true.

 The main problem people seem to have with 2CT is that it would mean that the current Ciel is nothing but an identity stealing,weak coward.Honestly I have never seen Ciel as anything more than a weak child, who’s desperately trying to do anything to survive.

 Clearly Ciel didn’t care for his parents death when he was making the contract as we see in chapter 95 , he was doing it all for himself, in order to clear his own shame, for his own pride.Their death was solely an excuse to save himself from certain death.

 From the beginning it’s clear that Ciel doesn’t have a particularly strong mindset, that’s why it would be logical that he’d try to mimic his brother’s confident,strong attitude in order to stay alive.He’s seen that it’s the only way to stay alive and not become a victim of Sebastian’s wrath or hunger.

   We have seen many points when he’s showing his true, emotional, weak,introverted self but is snapped out of it by Sebastian , when his words remind Ciel that he has to keep acting strong in order to keep living longer.

 Some of the examples would be: 1.Ciel losing his temper over the broken ring since it is a symbol of his status as the Earl Phantomhive,Sebastian stops him , he calms himself down;

2.Ciel throwing the ring away confidently , but seen to be worrying over it later at night , Sebastian brings the ring back to him , he ends pointless worrying;

3.While at the circus camp rough conditions and cold water bring Ciel down to the point when he’s shivering and hiding like a scared little kid, once again Sebastian confronts him and he finds strength to continue the mission;

4.The Green Witch arc when he’s vulnerable, hiding under the blankets , terrified of Sebastian, who threatens to devour his soul which snaps him back to reality.

and there are many more, worrying about Elizabeth, breaking the vase in rage after pretending to be calm in front of Bravat etc.

What I am trying to say is that it would be more than nice to see the real Ciel Phantomhive , the courageous , the confident, the more powerful one.

An encounter of Ciel & Sebastian with Real!Ciel and Undertaker would be interesting too.

Besides the story of how he was brought back and what his current agenda is would give the plot a whole new spirit.
   As for now it’s still just a theory but in case it turns out to be the truth I hope everyone doesn’t get bewildered and annoyed. Whatever his name may be who the current Ciel is, won’t change by the reveal and it can be very refreshing for the plot. And maybe , just maybe the Real!Ciel with Undertaker’s help would try to actually look for his parents murderers rather than trying to prolong his life putting off the revenge.

문법:  It is pointless to (Verb)

In today’s Korean lesson we will be looking at the grammar phrase ‘It is pointless to…

You can say this in either three ways:

1) ~기에는 의미가 없다

2) ~는건 무의미하다.

3) ~도 소용이 없다

Let’s look at some example sentences

이대로 공부하다가는 다음주에 볼 시험을 불합격할텐데 지나치게 하기에는 의미가 없어요.

이대로 공부하다가는 다음주에 볼 시험을 불합격할텐데 지나치게 하는건 무의미해요. 

이대로 공부하다가는 다음주에 볼 시험을 불합격할텐데 지나치게 해도 소용이 없어요.

All saying: If you study like this you will fail anyway so there is no point in studying so effortly?

앞날의 일은 걱정해도 소용없다

앞날의 일은 걱정하는건 무의미해요

앞날의 일은 걱정하기에는 의미가 없어요.

All saying:  It’s pointless to worry about what lies ahead.

Derek Hale Imagine- Love You Forever


Authors note- So it’s a bit different to my usual imagines, but I hope you enjoy it. You can find the song that inspired me here.

“Turn me” you said, coming face to face with your boyfriend. “No Y/n. I’ve told you before, you don’t want this” he exclaimed. “But I do” you remarked, folding your arms over your chest. “Somethings wrong” he said raising his eyebrows at you. “No” you said laconically, knowing he would hear your heart beat rise. “There is, isn’t there?” he sighed. You nod your head gently and bit your lip to stop it from quivering. He lifted you up and placed you on the kitchen counter top, the place you usually sat when you two were having trouble. “Recently, I’ve been starting to get sick again and my mom got worried and took me to the hospital-” you began. Derek’s heart sank. It brought him back to a similar time a few months back, the Darach had held you in an abandoned building for weeks to try and get to Derek. Unfortunately for you, the building had a high asbestos level and you ended up fighting for your life with asbestos poising. “Well I’ve now been diagnosed with Asbestosis and its why I’ve been so tired lately and why my chest is always in pain" you said, your voice cracked because you were on the brink of tears, you had your whole life ahead of you and it all seemed to come crumbling down. ”So what does that mean? Another operation? Antibiotics? Physio?” he began asking, in a sort of panic. “There’s no cure” you said, as tears began to stain your cheeks. You saw his face deflate, the sadness that clouded his eyes as he walked over and pulled you into a tight embrace. “We’ll get through this” he reassured. “I don’t want to go through this again” you sobbed into his chest. “Babe, I’m here and ill be with you every step of the way. But you’ve got to keep strong” he said, tangling his fingers in your hair. “What if I cant? What am I going to tell the pack? I don’t want them to feel sorry for me, but they’ll know somethings up” you rambled. “Y/n, look at me. Look at me!” he said gently. “We are going to get through this together, without the use of the supernatural. I’m going to be here every step of the way” he continued after you met his eyes. “Promise?” you asked with an involuntarily pout, you held your pinky finger out. “I promise babygirl” he said without hesitation, joining to pinky promise you. It was childish, but it was yours. You loved him and he adored you, you were just glad you had a boyfriend like him to support you through something like this.

Weeks had gone by and things only seemed to get better. The pack didn’t suspect anything, due to Derek teaching you how to hide your chemo signals and the pain was almost non existent especially with Derek removing it any chance he got. The only thing that seemed to be an annoyance was all the check-ups at the doctors and the constant coughs you caught. Derek had stuck to his word, he hadn’t left your side once. For a time you felt like a normal teenager; you moaned about homework, left important essays to the last minute, made plans with Stiles to prevent you all from getting killed, snuck out in the middle of the night to meet your boyfriend and worried about pointless things like your favourite show ending (Because Same). You were even invited to one of the biggest parties of the year, including the rest of the pack. Maybe things were starting to look up for you after all.

“Allison, Scott, Y/n!, come on we’re leaving!” Stiles shouted from downstairs. The two of you were trying to help him after he accidently split his jeans (long story). “One second” Scott shouted, followed by a wince after Allison accidently pricked his skin. “My arm is getting tired, hurry up” you whined, you had to hold him up while Allison sewed his jeans. “Guys come on, we’ll be late if there’s traffic!” Stiles shouted up again, obviously getting restless. “Go and start the engine then” Allison shouted in frustration, finding the task more difficult than it should have been. “What’s taking so long?” Lydia asked as she swung open Scott’s bedroom door. “Forget I asked” she added, slowly backing out of the room. “I’m just sewing his jeans and Y/n is holding him up” Allison let out a giggle after realising how weird it must have looked. “You do know you could of taken the jeans off and then sewed them?” Lydia shook her head. The three of you sighed at the same time and you and Allison stood back up. “That would of been a lot easier” you confirmed with a head nod. Lydia shook her head again and laughed, before gesturing for you all to hurry up. When you all got into the jeep, Stiles was staring at you all in hopes of some sort of apology for keeping him waiting. You all simply ignored it, you ruffled his hair and Scott punched him playfully in the arm. “I’m glad you came Y/n” Stiles smiled at you through the wing mirror. “I always come to parties?” you smiled but with a questioning look. “You never come to parties without Derek” Scott agreed. “Well, sometimes you just got to live it up- any day could be your last” you mumbled the last part. Allison shot a quizzical look from next to you, but brushed it off after you began singing happily to the radio a few seconds later.

You hadn’t been at the party for more than an hour when you started getting chest pain, you tried to convince yourself it was just heartburn from the vodka shots, but you knew different. You stumbled into the bathroom and began doing the breathing exercises your doctor taught you, but they didn’t seem to be working. You reached in your pocket to call Derek but the numbers in your phone became blurred. You felt light headed until you finally passed out and hit your head on the tiled floor. It was no longer than five minutes before Lydia found you and called the others for help. Scott and Stiles carried you into the kitchen as Allison swiped everything off the counter top. They placed you down and began to panic, after all they had no idea what you were actually dealing with. “Call an ambulance and you, call Derek” Allison began to order, as her Argent medical training kicked in. “What should I do?” Lydia asked, desperate to help. “Get a wet cloth and hold it on her head where she’s bleeding” she said quickly. She checked your pulse and her eyes widened. “Scott, Scott she’s not breathing” Allison panicked. “Please hurry she isn’t breathing” Scott repeated as he ended the 911 call. “Y/n wake up” “Y/n hold on, an ambulance will be here soon” “Does anyone no CPR?” “Come on Y/n, wake up!”.

“Hey, hey” the figure spoke softly as you sat up. “Am I at the hospital?” you asked, as your eyes began to adjust to the harsh light. “Yeah, you stopped breathing” he said, not wanting to confuse you by giving you every detail. “Do they know?” you asked. “Scott overheard the doctors debriefing one another, I had to tell them. They had a feeling something was up anyway” he explained, not sure how you would react. “Oh” you simply said. “They’re speaking to Mellissa at the reception, do you want me to bring them in?” he asked, understanding that you needed your friends. “I’m going to die, aren’t I?” you sighed. “No and don’t think like that” he linked his hand with yours to soothe you. You took a deep breath, feeling a tight pain in your chest. You then saw the veins in Derek’s hand turn black as he took your pain away. “I’m scared” you admitted. “I wont let anything happen to you, none of us will. If it came to it we’d do something” he reassured. “I love you” you cupped his cheek with your hand. “I love you too” he reached over and kissed you sweetly on your forehead. It was warming to know that you were the only one to make broody Derek smile and ne the sweet person he really is. “I’m scared that you’ll get tired of having to deal with my medical issue all the time, what if you find someone that’s fit and healthy, that keeps you far away from hospitals all the time? The same ones that I drag you in to every other week” you rambled. “I’m never leaving you, don’t stress baby” he smiled gently. “I hope that’s true” you smiled weakly but genuinely in return.

A While Later

Your health only seemed to be getting better, until it wasn’t. A few weeks after your birthday you got sick again and things took a turn for the worst. You almost died, you would have died. But here you are, alive and well, happily strolling around Beacon Hills at 10am (a habit you gained recently). You heard a twig snap from behind you. You turned around, your eyes glowing gold and a smile tugging at the corners of your mouth. You ran and jumped, and they caught you. “I see someone’s wolf instincts have kicked in” he laughed. You let out a small growl, followed by your familiar laugh. You then pressed your lips to Derek’s and ruffled his hair, before you quickly pinned him to the ground. “Rule number one, never get distracted” you teased, mocking the werewolf training he had been giving you. “Rule number 2, look for their weak spot” he said, kicking you in the back of the leg, causing you to fall on top of him. “Cheat, you knew about that” you said, noticing his smug smirk. You picked yourself up and offered your hand out and Derek took it, bring himself to also stand up. You pulled him down so you could whisper in his ear, “You forgot rule number three, never trust your opponent”  and with that you pulled him back onto the floor. “Looks like you’re going to be good at this” he groaned from the floor. “I know right” you joked, causing him to trip you up so you fell beside him. “Fancy getting something to eat?” he asked, as you also groaned. “Pizza” you smiled. “Pizza it is” he replied. You gave him a quick kiss, before you both rolled over and stood up. He brushed the leaves off your bum as you linked your arm with his. Your life was finally coming back together and you wouldn’t have it any other way. Or with anyone else.

I think I’m a fan of these optimistic endings, it appears. Requests are closed Unfortunately. Until the next time, see you later loves x

let-steph-sleep  asked:

Narusaku ? <33

  • Who said “I love you” first

Naruto. It’d be in a heated moment and it’d slip out, but when it does he won’t stop saying it.

  • Who would have the other’s picture as their phone background

Both. Naruto because he still can’t believe Sakura is his and loves seeing her face whenever he looks at the time. And Sakura because Naruto face makes her day less crappy.

  • Who leaves notes written in fog on the bathroom mirror

Naruto. He’s surprisingly an early riser so he always showers first and then leaves her a small note: ‘morning sleepyhead xx’

  • Who buys the other cheesy gifts

Naruto. He’s just a dork like that.

  • Who initiated the first kiss

Sakura. Honestly, Naruto is just too scared of being pummelled and Sakura is tired of waiting for him to kiss her so she does it first and it makes him turn red.

  • Who kisses the other awake in the morning

Naruto. Again, he’s an early riser and sometimes he gets bored and misses Sakura too much so he starts leaving kisses over any piece of exposed skin and counts them so when she’s awake he laughs and says, “well, that took only twenty-five kisses. Good morning gorgeous.”

  • Who starts tickle fights

Both. Naruto just wants an excuse to be close to Sakura, and also he enjoys making her laugh. Sakura does it to remind him she could totally pin him down and have her way with him. 

  • Who asks who if they can join the other in the shower

Sakura. Naruto never bothers, he just hops in. It earns him a smack on the head but Sakura can’t resist his creative ways of apologising ;-)

  • Who surprises the other in the middle of the day at work with lunch

Sakura. She teases him, “Poor Hokage-sama doing paperwork on an empty stomach. Here, I bought us lunch.” “I knew there was a reason I married you.” “Baka.”

  • Who was nervous and shy on the first date

Sakura. She’s nervous to how they should act now that they both know they’re romantically interested in each other. But she finds out it was absolutely pointless to worry because Naruto was still his same goofy self and bloody hell who could feel nervous around this ball of joy?

  • Who kills/takes out the spiders

Sakura. Naruto jumps a foot in the air whenever he sees one and it makes Sakura die of laughter. 

  • Who loudly proclaims their love when they’re drunk

Naruto. In the rare times he manages to get drunk he makes it his life mission to make Sakura blush five different shades of pink.

(send me a ship)

anonymous asked:

How do u survive medical school???

Here’s the secret. You absolutely have to focus on taking one step at a time and ignore the rest.

It’s pretty intimidating at times, especially when you think that you’ll be a doctor in X number of years! Probably the only way I got through it was to focus only on the next step at hand. It’s perfectly natural and rational to feel that it’s overwhelming and terrifying, because there is a lot to learn. But you don’t have to learn it all at once, and nobody expects you to become an expert overnight. They just expect you to reach the next milestone.

You won’t feel ready for final year in first year; but you’re not expected to! Of course it looks scary! Remind yourself that this is natural, but also pointless to worry about, and try to re-focus on the task at hand. Break down the current year into all the steps you need to achieve (and there are probably a lot of them!). Breaking it down and planning the steps you need to take can be therapeutic when you feel anxious, and it also help you to plan out your workload, so it’s a win-win.

Then, by the time you get to the end, you realise that you’ve levelled up quite a bit, and the kinds of things that once scared you aren’t quite so scary any more.

Every once in a while, I had to remind myself that everybody before me had managed to somehow scrape by, so it wasn’t impossible. If they can, why can’t you? I promise all the people who have finished med school before you aren’t better than you. If you got through secondary/high school and the applications process you are more than smart and hardworking enough to go all the way, with a little support. Sometimes, telling yourself that you can do it is an important part of beginning to believe that this is true.

And of course the other half of it is making a support network out of friends. It’s important (or at least, nice) to have both medical and non-medical friends but looking after each other is an important part of surviving med school.

DTLCN: Plagg

First l Previous l Next

Senior Detective Plagg Piao-Chong sighed at his desk. He was working overtime again, and Tikki would be worried. The worry was pointless, really. Now that they were putting civilians, kids, undercover there was little harm that could come his way. Plagg ran his hands through his hair, which had a subtle hint of grey around the edges of silky black, a reminder why he could not go undercover and find “The Butterfly” himself.

He was going back over the information they currently had, the victim’s statements, and what Marinette and Adrien had told him. There was a map with red pins for the parties, and blue pins for where Marinette and Adrien had found the victims. From the look of the map they should be concentrating their patrols to the south, as every pick up was south of each party.

The biggest hold up was that they should have the name of one of the Butterfly’s associates, but the school was refusing to give out her information. Even Tikki couldn’t tell him anything, as it would breach all these laws around teaching. Plagg scratched his head and sighed he wasn’t getting anywhere. He picked up his phone and called Tikki.

“Plag are you coming home?” Tikki said after a single ring.

“Sorry to keep you waiting, Love. I just want this case to be over.” He twirled a pencil through his fingers reading over his notes.

“So, you’re still at work?” Tikki sighed.

Plagg could hear the fatigue in her voice. “Tikki, I know I had promised to come home sooner, but that was before I put kids on the front lines.” Plagg put down the pencil and ran his hand through his hair again. “I don’t want to be held responsible if those two get hurt.”

He heard Tikki sigh again, “Destroying yourself won’t help anyone. Come home, I made dinner.”

Plagg smiled, “You know you’re better at making deserts.”

“If we have deserts every night, someone won’t be able to chase down the bad guys.”

Plagg laughed, “Are you sure there are no other reasons that you worry about my physic?”

“Why don’t you come home and find out.” The line died.

Plagg looked around the empty office in shock, because yes, his wife had really just done that. He chuckled again to himself and began to put his things away. He noticed his list of fellow detectives assisting with the case. He knew one of them was probably leading them in the wrong direction and in league with the Butterfly, but he couldn’t figure out which one it was.

“This is a mess.” He muttered as he put that file in his pen drawer and locked it.

“What’s a mess?”

Plagg spun and grabbed his pistol, not drawing it, but ready to. “Oh, Nathalie.” He said seeing one of the Junior Detectives assigned to the case. “I thought everyone had left.”

“Nope, still here wracking my brains.” She cut off muttering something he couldn’t hear.

“What was that?” Plagg asked.

“Oh, nothing. Have you learned anything new about the Akuma/ Butterfly stuff?” She asked.

“Not really.” He was one of three people who knew about Ladybug and Cat Noir, and the only one who knew their names. “Not much to go off of, the victims remember so little, and our one suspect is being protected by the school.”

Nathalie shrugged, “I hope those kids aren’t getting involved anymore.”

Plagg looked over to her, “What kids?”

She raised her eyebrows, “I thought you knew the victims had been taken to the hospital by a couple of students.”

“Well, yes, but that information is classified, and we’ve convinced them to stop.” Plagg frowned a bit before smiling, “Why don’t we call it a night. I just need to get something out of this drawer, and then I can walk you to your car.”

“I can easily walk myself.” Nathalie replied.

“But it’s always nice to walk with someone, or so I’ve found.” Plagg unlocked the drawer and pulled the file he had just placed in it back out. He then waved her through the door, “Shall we?”

Nathalie gave him a tight smile before obliging and walking with him out of the station to her car.

When he got home Plagg went into the office with his and Tikki’s desks before sitting down to dinner and pulled out a highlighter, going over Nathalie’s name. There was no way she could have known about the two college students helping akuma victims, everyone who knew was being too quiet on the issue.

Once he was finished he went in and kissed Tikki, “I think I know who our mole is.” He whispered in her ear.

“That’s as a better reason to celebrate than the one I had come up with.” She responded, making ing him laugh. Maybe this would be over quickly after all.

HaHaHa, I don’t know when this will be over (but probably not as quickly as Plagg thinks), but at least it’s getting a better shape to it. I really am supper happy people are liking this, I felt like I was taking a huge risk. Oh, and I was lookign up ship names for Tikki and Plagg, and whoever came up with Cheesecake is a genius.

I don’t have problem with child characters (And when I talk about child characters, I mean genuine child characters, no adults or teenagers looking like children or immortal children or characters that age different and looks like child but in reality are legally adults…they are a complete different subject)…conceptually. I don’t like when they are used as plot devices, I don’t like when they are pointless and I specially dislike when they behave like fucking adults without a motive. 

…Therefore you may suppose that I really like Elise from Xillia 

…and you would be right reader, I love her, she is a great character and Teepo would be the best Tales mascot if not for Rollo…

(…He is a god in comparison with other anime (Videogame) mascots…)

But if you want to have a child character, with clear motives, good development, a meaningful arc, etc. I say go for it, and make it great…and Laphicet (Phi) is indeed great.

First of all, he is adorable, he can cast Indignation and he also is the middle-ground between emotion and reason that the game wants to reach.

If Eleanor is the constant inner-conflict between the ideas, Phi would be their natural coexistence.

Phi starts as blank page, a puppet just referred as Number 2 and a representation of the Malakin subdue for the Abbey, then he is “taken” from Teresa and joins for the party and then…he just start to learn, to grow, to know these flawed people…and even if he cannot understand the totality of each one, he can acknowledge the inner goodness that he sees in each one of them. And in that matter, we as the players get to know a lot more of the cast trough his interaction with him (Eleanor also serves to this purpose but is with Phi that we get to know the best of the party because…). He is an adorable, cute and innocent child and the party, conscientiously or not, TRIES (and I emphasize the tries, because wanting it or not, the Menagerie is still the Menagerie and there is still conflict here, these most notorious been Velvet’s seen him as a replace for her brother, that gets resolve in a really heartwarming scene, I loved that scene… or Rokuro intent to kill him during the encounter with Kurogane) to be the best to him, teaching him, explaining and in reward we, and Phi, have this amazing little insiders for each one of the party members; Velvet’s first redeemable traits are shown us thanks to her interactions with Phi, seen Rokuro and Eizen playing the wiser older brothers is hilarious, Am I right, Rhinostragros? But it also let see us that Rokuro and Eizen have a genuine concern about been good examples for Phi with they “Don’t be like us” and fuck it, some of the first shades to Magilou’s true character are through her interaction with Phi. And in the end he takes the best all of this knowledge and experiences, this great and epic journey, and grows thanks to that travel.

He is the moral compass of these less than perfect people (Eleanor also tries to play this role, although with less success than Phi) and thanks to him we get to know the better of them.

He is also the best developed character in the cast and seen him grow from this helpless and quiet child to this determined badass who will fight for what he thinks is right (And been honest, leaving Magilou’s monologues to Melchior, he has the best scenes in the game)

“Eat my arm! I don’t care just leave me the other one! I need It to clobber the jerk who made my Velvet cry!”)

It is just fucking amazing.

In regard as his ending as Maotelus (And his eventual fate in Zestiria)…Is fitting. This kid that was nourished for this amazing journey with Velvet and the Menagerie, for all of these different experiences, points of views and teachings…He grows assimilating both ideologies and now he stands as the ideal manifestation (With Eleanor been the practical) of the healthy coexistence of reason and emotion…and the literal hope to reach Velvet’s endless and idyllic dream, …it gets the better of me in the same way that Velvet does and it’s just a beautiful ending for Phi’s arc and the game.

And that was the four…Uff…uff…you know what they say about pointless worries…


Eizen is awesome; he has the height, the posture, the voice, the long coat, the quotes, the family connections, the dorkiness, the “Perfect Mayhem” one of the most kickass designs of the franchise, his character screams “I’m fucking badass”

…Badass indeed…

…he is also one of the most interesting members of the cast.

Eizen is 1000 years old Malak afflicted for The Reaper’s curse which cause misfortune to the people that surrounds him, he is also a pirate, the second mate of The Aifread’s pirates, who ends joining Velvet quest in order to seek pass through one of the Abbey’s fortress and later for the possibility to find clues of the missing Captain Aifread whose disappearance maybe connected with one of the highest ranks of the Abbey.

Eizen is pirate, a ruthless thief, a man with little regards for the rules of the Abbey or the Kingdom, someone who has no moral compass other than his own convictions, an intrepid and dorkish adventurer who travels the eleven seas for the pure joy of doing it, loyal to his crew, to his captain, and his creed…

Wait a minute…He is still a bad guy, right?…

Let me see, thief? Check. Inclination to punching people? Check. Does business with morally questionable people? Check….oh he is also a second in command of a well knowing pirate crew…double check …then why he still looks like he could be one the good pirate characters in One Piece?…Well because that is the point.

In the same way that One Piece (Or the first Pirates of the Caribbean) explore a heavy romanticize vision of what a pirate is, Eizen is the romanticize vision of what a life led by emotions is. His arc doesn’t deal with themes like obsession or blindness or about losing yourself in your own overwhelming emotions (through there is something like that in regard to his arc during the Zaveid side quest, but is played in a different manner but don’t worry we’ll get there) like Rokuro’s or Velvet’s. No, his arc revolve about why emotions are so important for us and how following our own path, our own believes, is the only way to live our own life to the fullest, and in that regard he is the biggest contrast with the oppressive ways of the Abbey.

Eizen is someone that live adventures with his friends, he travels to exotic places, he doesn’t answer to anyone, a man that values his freewill above anything else and that will not letting that anything or anyone take it away from him, but as I said in the begging he’s not an auto-destructive person nor an anarchist, he plays the role of the lovable rogue (Despite that we actually don’t see much of thesem because the game isn’t about the adventures of Eizen and Benwick in the Van Eltia) with a stoic attitude and tough demeanor but also with a heart of gold a dork and in that regard he is the most enjoyable and funny member of the party (Aside for certain witch)…he is the most open to express his appreciation for the group aside for Phi, maybe, his completely honest fanboy rants about history or relics or just expressing his more pure inner feelings about his ways of life…He is amazing…Live hard and day young, Am I right, Eizen?… but in that regard, how many people have the raw muscle to decide their own fate? But even more important than that. Do you have it, Eizen?

Eizen has a role in the narrative and goal in the game, but they are just little bifurcations in a much greater story about Eizen fighting his own fate.

His natural affinity as an earth Malak, The Reaper curse, the laws of the Abbey, the Malevolence that slowly has started to overcome him and even the event of the game are no more than other rock blocking his way to…well, nothing. Eizen journey is just an endless resistance test that will have an abrupt end (In the context of the life spam of Malikhim/Seraphim), a romantic one for sure, fighting for the sake of the word against a future Lord of Calamity, and later, after becoming a dragon, killed as a way of saving him and putting him to rest of his madness state, but an end after all.

Eizen’s story is one of a man against the world, an endless path which mere travel through him symbolize the quest of men for freedom in his lives…Eizen is the coolest, and he was made to be the coolest, a romantic hero who has been throw it in a cynical story about clashing ideas as one of the idealist and inspirational parts of the emotion side…and again he does amazing in his job.

Term officially finished this week, which means I’ve got two weeks of “break” before I start my internship. Results were on Thursday, and I’m actually so pleased! I was so nervous, but on 4/5 exams I got Firsts, and the one which I didn’t get a First on was the module dropping, so I think it proves that I made a good decision in option modules. That said, that wasn’t what I was most proud of, I actually managed to get 82.5% on one of my exams!! That’s so good and was so unexpected. I’m just so damn happy at the minute.

I’m moving next week, so it’s to be a week of packing and cleaning the house, but I’m really excited to move in with my bf and have a change of location. Ngl, I’m scared to start my internship, but I’m hoping that it’ll give me more of an indication of what I do want to do for my year in industry. I’m really hoping it’ll be something I can enjoy doing, but will be something that I can leave behind. With uni work, it seems so often that I’m doing work beyond the normal 9-5 working hours someone may have. Hopefully with this work, I’ll be able to leave it behind when I go home and be free all weekend to visit family and friends, and just have a bit more fun.

Come September I need to have eight CVs and cover letters ready to apply for my year in industry. I think I’m fancying something more pharmaceutical/ organic-based. Whilst it’s something I enjoy, it’s also not what I’m best at. I’m going to try and get some books out of the library to revise my organic chemistry, which I hope will prepare me for interviews. There are also a couple I’ve seen which are actually biochemistry books, which I think sound interesting, so I may check out. The trouble is that if they’re more biological-based, I may not understand them and have to check other books out instead,

However, what I’m hoping is that reading these books which I’m interested in will help me regain some of my enthusiasm for chemistry. It’s kinda sad bc at this point I’ve been so stressed out and been trying to learn so much for exams that it’s just taken the fun out of chemistry. I’m hoping that by reading books on the topics of chemistry I’m more interested in, I’ll start to enjoy it more.

We had a module called “Chemistry and Disease” last term, and it was by far my favourite option module, and I’m continuing it next year. I screwed myself over by making a mistake on the workshop which cost me about 1/3rd of the possible marks, but really made up for it on the exam. I could also have elected to do a module on Genes and Genetic Engineering next year, which I was tempted by, but I don’t think I know enough Biology to do. One of the aforementioned books is a basic intro to genes through a biological perspective. So I’m hoping if I read that and enjoy and understand it, I can then change to the other module instead.
