For those who don’t know what Samurai Jack is and why we should be stoked that it’s coming back:
There’s a loner with a man-bun
Who was pulled out of his timeline
And sees modern things through the lens of 17th century Japanese prince.
There are awesome fight scenes
And dramatic narrative moments
And best of all, the show fluctuates between being awesome and freaking ridiculous at the drop of a hat, often in the same narrative breath.
It’s a really good show to watch if you want to learn about the use of color and shapes in storytelling, as well as exaggerated perspective, use of negative space, timing, and narrative arcs. I recommend it to all comic artists, storyboarders, illustrators, cinematographers, writers… heck, ANYONE. GET HYPE.
Call it God
Call it a fucking flower.
What matters is this:
It is everything. And it sees through all things. It is birthless, deathless, fearless and desireless. It is the creator, sustainer and destroyer of all reality.
It is the dreamer and the dream.
It is you.
I’m so proud of Ben for this. Coming from someone who’s mother died as a result of alcohol and drug addiction, it’s so refreshing seeing someone being able to seek treatment not only for themselves but for their own family. Because nothing hurts more than seeing someone struggle through addiction and not want to get better. Trust me I know how that feels. We stand with you Ben! We’re all happy to see you taking the steps to get better.
Hooray, I finally finished! This is based on @russianfeya‘s Neon Pink Motorcycle fic. It’s a soulmate AU where people have a mark that changes color depending on the soulmate’s mood. Yuri no longer has a mark (due to Reasons) and it just hit me in the most recent chapter that when Otabek asks “How are you feeling?” he’s actually…you know, comparing notes. :D Anyway, if that sounds like something you’d like to read, I highly recommend it!
Yuuri, Victor, and the Importance of Good Communication
Week 2017 – Day 4 – Free for All
So for today’s free for all I’d like to talk about something
I haven’t heard too much about in the context I’m hoping to present it. My
topic is specifically about how Victor and Yuuri are both very independent individuals
and how that, combined with both of them having zero experience with serious
emotional relationships, works to create miscommunications between the two of
start off, I’d like to clarify what I mean when I say they’re independent.
Obviously they’re both able to take care of themselves when it comes to stuff
such as physical needs (like feeding themselves, etc). I’m talking more about
how they’re emotionally independent.
They’re both the kind of people who keep their problems to themselves and try
to solve them all without relying on the help of others. They both actually
tell us this directly.
We see this come up a bunch during the series even though
both are aware that they do this. You can see it happen as early as episode 2
when Victor is hurt that Yuuri is rejecting him after the connection he felt they
had at the banquet but never brings it up with him. Instead he sits on and stews
in it. And likewise for Yuuri, he’s very confused as to why Victor is there at
all and is being so forward with him but never asks him why. He just comes to
his own conclusions and treats them as the truth until proven otherwise.
On top of them both being used to handling their problems on
their own and internalizing their worries, they both also have no experience
with deep emotional love relationships. I use the adjectives deep, emotional,
and love to describe the relationship because you can have any other combination
of those and have it not really touch the depth and type of relationship these
two have with each other. They may have had other relationships but none that
came close to this level.
☆ summary → When the nation’s little sister,
IU, gets into a huge scandal, your agency seizes the opportunity to thrust you
into that now vacant spotlight. Your self-composed song Paper Doll becomes an overnight sensation, and soon people
are itching to find out who was the one who broke your heart. All hell breaks
loose once netizens discover that you used to date popular idol, Jeon Jungkook.
Little do they know that it wasn’t him who left the relationship unscathed –
it was you.

can’t believe how many people liked pt. i – also, I know absolutely
nothing about songwriting or music theory, or anything really, so this is me
bullshitting my way through 4k words that i haven’t proofread
You associated every song of yours to a specific time
The whimsical cluster chords that opened up Blue Afternoon made you think of the view from your window last
spring. Looking down on the busy streets of Seoul from your flat, a crowding of
umbrellas had danced to the sound of heavy rain, and you had been immediately
struck with a melody line.
That was your favorite part of songwriting – that moment when you finally had something, after having absolutely
Ironically enough, out of all the songs on your album,
you disliked Paper Doll the most.
Even before it had been propelled to the top of the
music charts, the song had never been a favorite. The melody line was catchy
but predictable, with the most common chord progressions and an overproduced
chorus. The people reviewing your songs during the album production had
all loved it, however, and they had adamantly decided to push it as a title
It was amusing how people presumed the song described
a devastating heartbreak between you and your first love. They weren’t exactly wrong, but their interpretation was completely off.
Still, you weren’t stupid enough to disapprove their theories. If they wanted to
believe that your first boyfriend was a heartless playboy, then that wasn’t
At least you had never thought it would have to be a
