  • Alec: You never called me back. I called you so many times and you never called me back.
  • Magnus: Your city is under attack. The wards have broken, and the streets are full of demons. And you want to know why I haven’t called you?”
  • Alec: I want to know why you haven’t called me back.
  • Magnus: You’re an idiot.
  • Alec: Is that why you didn’t call me? Because I’m an idiot?
  • Magnus: No. I didn’t call you because I’m tired of you only wanting me around when you need something. I’m tired of watching you be in love with someone else—someone, incidentally, who will never love you back. Not the way I do.
  • Alec: You love me?
  • Magnus: You stupid Nephilim. Why else am I here? Why else would I have spent the past few weeks patching up all your moronic friends every time they got hurt? And getting you out of every ridiculous situation you found yourself in? Not to mention helping you win a battle against Valentine. And all completely free of charge!
  • Alec: I hadn’t looked at it that way,
  • Magnus: Of course not. You never looked at it in any way. I’m seven hundred years old, Alexander. I know when something isn’t going to work. You won’t even admit I exist to your parents.
  • Alec: I thought you were three hundred! You’re seven hundred years old?
  • Magnus: Well, eight hundred. But I don’t look it. Anyway, you’re missing the point.

  • i still don’t understand the secrets at the beginning. it all sounds like nonsense to me. i do love that the second secret is framed as like a song, that’s cute
  • “probably not pleasant at all,” the gray man describes declan waiting to have his door kicked in, while at the same time describing declan’s whole entire life
  • old people make ronan anxious
  • “at night, [gansey] looked particularly small” gansey is tiny #confirmed by ronan

  • Me: I want to reread Captive Prince.
  • Logical Me: You have no time to reread Captive Prince.
  • Logical Me: Even if you did have time to reread Captive Prince in the few minutes you could steal from studying time, you'd end up wanting to write metas, and metas take up even more time you don't have.
  • Me: But I want to reread Captive Prince.
  • Logical Me: ...you know...you make a compelling argument there...

Hey how y'all doin’, I have just officially finished watching all 500 episodes of Naruto Shippuuden :’)

3

I could write about the scene of the rest of my life and always be happy with it. I’ve talked so much about it but there was one thing I noticed while reading the official translation for the first time (and read a ton of translations when that chapter came out haha). A good majority of it is the same, what Mikasa is saying stands true in just about every chapter, but Eren’s translation differs depending on who translated it. Previous to reading this my favorite was the one where he says something like it’s just a scarf, I’ll wrap it around you as many times as I need. Or the we’ll keep on being together one. They all give me feelings okay.

My favorite though has to be the translation in the published book. Eren gets that Mikasa’s scarf that he gave her so long ago is very special to her, girl wears it all the time but I think he understands it means a little bit more. It’s not just a treasured item; it’s their connection, its Mikasa’s connection to him. It’s not special just because it reminded her of the day he saved her life; it’s special because he gave it to her because he protected her that night. It was the very moment they were bound together and they have been ever since.

So he tells her “I’ll wrap you up in it again,” basically telling her I’ll always be there to protect you. That’s not enough though. He turns to face their enemy saying “again and again forever.” I will protect you time and time again for forever, he tells her. As if one again wasn’t enough, as if two more wasn’t enough, its forever. He is telling her they’ll always be together, they’ll always be bound like the night they were nine years old. She was telling him how much he has always meant to her, and he tells her how much she has always meant to him. Enough to prompt his words promising to always be there for her, that he will never leave her behind, that he will keep her save with him forever. Enough to try and punch a titan because he has to get her out of there; this will not be goodbye, they still have forever.

This ugly man is playing peekaboo with his newly born infant son, who does not yet posses object permanence. Koichi truly thought his father was gone, even though he was just hiding behind the Morioh map. Now, he cannot be happier to see his father’s return. Soon, Rohan will return behind the map, causing Koichi to become distressed, only to pop out quickly before any real damage is done. A game of pop goes the weasel! Soon, Koichi will be old enough to recognize that Rohan still exists although he is behind the sign!
