reveal watch

I wonder if in the years after the Battle of Yavin, and later after Endor, people in the galaxy start talking about the curse of the Death Star the way we talk about the curse of the Pharaohs, because everyone involved with it died.

The Death Star was originally a Separatist weapon developed for Count Dooku: Dooku died and the Separatists lost the Clone Wars.

The Geonosians built the Death Star: nearly the entire Geonosian species was wiped out and the planet sterilized.

Jedha provided the kyber crystals for the Death Star: the Holy City and a huge chunk of the planet’s population died.

Galen Erso and his team of scientists worked on the Death Star: they all died.

Orson Krennic was in charge of building the Death Star: he died (cause of death: Death Star).

Tarkin took control of the Death Star: he and everyone on the Death Star died.

Jyn and Cassian and company got their hands on the plans: they died, along with, presumably, most of the population of that hemisphere of Scarif.

Emperor Palpatine ordered the construction of the Death Star and later the Second Death Star: he died, along with, presumably, most of the people on the Second Death Star.

Darth Vader was on both Death Stars: he died.

Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewbacca were all on one or both of the Death Stars at some point in time: well, they might not have been responsible for the thing, but man, did their lives get fucked up, but props for surviving the CURSE OF THE DEATH STAR.  Er, mostly.  For longer than most people, anyway, sorry, Han.

Some people say it was the curse of a dying Geonosian queen, others the will of the Force in revenge for Jedha, others Saw Gerrera’s dying words, others some twisted dark magic of one of the Emperor’s defeated foes – or Dooku’s – or the Jedi’s – because curses don’t have to make sense, but damn, if the rumor doesn’t get around once some of the Death Star’s history starts to get out to the general public.

Startling new report shows just how terrible things still are for LGBTQ kids

  • A report released on Wednesday by Human Rights Watch reveals that despite the “positive trends” for LGBTQ rights this past decade things are still pretty horrible for lots of young LGBTQ people.
  • For some, just getting through the day is like, as one parent of a gender nonconforming student put it, “walking through a hailstorm” of hostility every school day.
  •  LGBTQ youth, according to the report, still “have disproportionately high rates of homelessness, physical and mental health concerns, and suicidality.” Read more

the cutest adorable side of Johnny Suh ♥♥♥

Of Babies and Accidental Sex Tapes

All Clarke had wanted to do was film a cute reaction video to maybe post on YouTube- because Bellamy was definitely going to cry-and somehow she had ended up creating her first sex tape. Their first sex tape, actually.

Bellamy still cried, so she’s pretty sure it’s the weirdest sex tape ever. [AO3]

a really weird trend in the recent episodes is th crewniverse is remembering the old like, plot threads and side conflicts that were fleshing out characters in the past and now they’re just like offhandedly wrapping them up 

like amethyst’s whole self-worth situation and lapis’ discomfort with the gems and earth as a whole they ignore for like an entire season and then they bring it up again in two sentences and say “oh yeah well that resolved offscreen : )”

they honestly cant handle having more than 1 plot thread at a time its actually hilarious

On July 5, 2016, the moon passed between NOAA’s DSCOVR satellite and Earth. NASA’s EPIC camera aboard DSCOVR snapped these images over a period of about four hours. In this set, the far side of the moon, which is never seen from Earth, passes by. In the backdrop, Earth rotates, starting with the Australia and Pacific and gradually revealing Asia and Africa.

Sun-Pluto contacts

Sun conjunct Pluto, Sun sextile Pluto, Sun trine Pluto, Sun square Pluto, Sun opposite Pluto

The Sun contacting Pluto in the natal chart can create a day and night personality. The individual seems to step from the light into the darkness, radiating and then withdrawing, constantly touched by something resonant and commanding. It can be difficult to ascertain the deep wells that open like coded labyrinths in these individuals. Often they remain intensely private people, protective of their internal world and vulnerabilities, watchful of revealing too much. Something reverent glows with Sun-Pluto contacts. Underworld musk infuses with sunlight to create a hypnotic incense, their intuitive receptivity penetrating into psychic waves like a lamp over the unconscious sea. These people are regenerated through Plutonian union, that is, soaking in unconscious underlays, indulging in occult arts or mystical studies, wandering through depressions and traumas, and exploring the invisible, what provokes and exhumes the spirit. The individual may have an intense expression and read people with a natural sonar for depth psychology. Hidden complexes in others can reveal themselves, and prophetic vision can be manifested into reality by sheer thought projection. By nature, the individual can intimidate weaker spirits or bring those who have sinned to their knees. The individual relates well with people who have bought to consciousness their own darkness. As a result, they may seem reckless with their own lives, or as if they attract people who seem unusual or philosophical. These individuals seem to make soul contacts with people, seeking to evaporate form and connect with people on intimate, spiritual levels. For most people, this can be too confrontational or daunting. This can be why Sun-Pluto individuals can wander alone for much of life, waiting for somebody who can throw roses to the monsters with them.

¿Quién es Sombra? A character analysis (Overwatch)

Originally posted by daftprodigy

So I’ve been watching the reveal of Sombra over and over again (as ya do), and I couldn’t help but notice some details that say a lot about her personality, worldview, and just how fucked up of a character she is. In the brief time we’ve seen her, Blizzard has already developed her into one of the most fleshed-out characters in all of Overwatch. Piecing together details from her short and her backstory video, we can begin to get a fairly clear picture of how she thinks. And needless to say, it’s very interesting, fucked up, and in a way, kind of tragic.

More below the cut. It’s a really long post, so be warned.
