she's having an emotion

Mor: I like sleeping with men and women, but only have an emotional connection with women.

Someone: She lesbian

Me: *twitches*

Someone: and also she’s leading Az on and really owes it to him to come out of the closet

Me: *clenches fists softly*

Someone: Mor also is holding Cassian back from being with Nesta out of girl hate or jealousy

Me: Ok look here you little sonofab-

Briarleaf, warrior of NightClan

A very cold and distant she-cat, Briarleaf doesn’t have many emotional bonds to her clanmates. She sees her duty as a warrior her top priority and doesn’t put much stock in anything else. She gets extremely annoyed at any sort of goofing off or playfulness and while she usually isn’t very vocal about her irritation, she sure as heck will scowl and glare at the perpetrator.

So I know it's not TSCTuesday but this question popped into my head and I know I'll forget it in about a day, yet alone until next Tuesday. Anyway, you've said that the Savior isn't exactly human due to being made from magic, so I was wondering, does she feel human emotions and have expressions, or is she just some bland magical being just for reproduction?

You’re confused about a lot of stuff.

1) She’s not literally made of magic. Her body has magic within it. You know how your body contains bones, blood, organs, etc? It’s like that. 

2) She’s not made for reproduction. She’s not an incubator. She’s a living, breathing person, as well as a Queen. It’s normal for monarchs to be expected to continue the lineage - that doesn’t mean that’s the purpose of their existence. If you’re confused regarding what The Savior is and what TSC is about, you can check the TSC tab. 

3) She has emotions, like all mammals. 

A heads up to the masses: I would never create a character whose sole function was to grow a baby. I’m an asshole, but I’m not heinous. 

I just got home from seeing Wonder Woman. I was in tears for half the movie: Diana was never once presented as a sex object, she was never sidelined, her thighs shook, and she is a fighter. Not just a girl who can be dressed up in a sexy catsuit and fight sexily, but a fighter. Not one of those fight scenes was choreographed so she could land in an awkward pose that showed off her ass. She is gorgeous but not once was her worth correlated to her beauty. 

All of that, and she was still able to express a full range of human emotion – she didn’t have to be a hardass bitch who could only be angry or disappointed. She got to show joy, and wonder, and confusion, and horror, and sadness, and love – and anger, yes, real deep anger that comes from the pit of the soul. She is a whole, dynamic person who also happens to be a bad ass warrior. AND she could be this bad ass warrior without having a father or mother to hate, or trauma to catapult her into the world. Diana grew up loved and happy, and she stepped out into the world because it was the right thing to do, not because she had a personal ax to grind.

My husband was with me, and I remember coming to the realization part-way through that he was born into this. He has had this his entire life. It makes me so angry, and it also makes me so happy that there are little girls right now who will grow up with what I didn’t, and little boys who will grow up with this as well, who will be awed by Diana and see how Steve treats her.

Voices of the Navy wives at the funeral echoed in her mind like a Greek chorus. We try to look out for each other. Well, you’ll see. It didn’t make her feel better. She didn’t want to be in their club. Didn’t want to learn how to be apart from the one person she longed to see every day.

CAN WE FUCKING TALK ABOUT AND APPRECIATE THE FACT OF HOW ERINA PENDLETON LITERALLY HAD TO RAISE HER SON ON HER OWN REMEMBERING THE HORRORS THAT HAPPENED TO JONATHAN

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW SHE STILL NAMED HER SON AFTER JONATHAN’S FATHER, LIKE THEY (JONATHAN AND ERINA) HAD ALREADY SPOKEN ABOUT HAVING CHILDREN IN THE FUTURE AND THAT JONATHAN WOULD’VE WANTED TO NAME HIS SON AFTER HIS FATHER AND ERINA HELD UP TO THAT PROMISE EVEN LONG AFTER JONATHAN’S DEATH

CAN WE TALK ABOUT THEN SHE WATCHED HER SON GROW UP TO BE A GREAT (BUT I BET HE WAS A BIT GOOFY AND SLIGHTLY LIKE JOSEPH BUT STILL A LOT LIKE JONATHAN, FUNNY AND SILLY BUT STILL QUITE CHIVALROUS BUT AN ADORABLE DORK WHO PROBABLY NEEDED A LOT OF TIME AND TOOK UP A LOT OF GUTS TO FINALLY ASK ELIZABETH OUT- AND EVEN THEN HE STUMBLED ON HIS WORDS), WATCHED HIM MARRY AND HAVE A SON, SHE WATCHED HIM START TO HAVE THE LIFE JONATHAN WAS SUPPOSED TO, AND THEN SHE HAD TO HEAR ABOUT HOW HE FUCKING DIED THANKS TO THE SAME THING THAT KILLED HER HUSBAND AND HIS FATHER. 

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW SHE THEN HAD TO RAISE JOSEPH ON HER OWN?? (I MEAN, SPEEDWAGON WAS AROUND, BUT ERINA WAS LIKE THE CLOSEST MOTHER FIGURE JOSEPH HAD.) LIKE, THIS WOMAN HAS LOST SO FUCKING MUCH IN HER LIFE AND SHE WAS STILL A WOMAN TO BE RESPECTED AND LOVED SO DEARLY AND SHE WAS STILL SO KIND. 

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW SHE THOUGHT JOSEPH HAD DIED??? FOUR JOESTARS. SHE LIVED AS 4 JOESTARS DIED, ALL RELATED TO HER. BUT THEN JOSEPH WAS ALIVE AND SHE WAS FUCKING OVERJOYED.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW SHE WATCHED HER GRANDSON WHO SHE RAISED GET MARRIED (shutupI’mgoingbymyFan-canonhere-) AND HAVE A DAUGHTER AND LIVE A HAPPY LIFE??? THE LIFE NO ONE BEFORE IN HIS FAMILY HAD??? AS SHE HAD SEEN FIRST HAND 

ERINA PENDLETON/JOESTAR IS SO FUCKING GREAT AND I LOVE HER SO GODDAMN MUCH 

the single most messed up i’ve ever been from a moment was when we were doing a book signing in a town called Bristol in England, and we met one really emotional mum - a sad mum. i mean anyone would just get slaughtered by that, there’s no way you can stand up to a sad mum, and she was just like “oh, my daughter or my son have had a really really tough year” but she was really emotional and crying and she was like “i just want to say thank you, everything’s been terrible. but just because they’ve been watching your videos, they’ve been smiling and having a good time”. that was the most real i’ve ever seen something and she was saying “it’s not like you’re Superman or you know..” but simply like - she just wanted to say “thank you. beacuse just by providing this light entertainment, you’ve been so helpful. i really appreciate that you’re just doing whatever the heck it is that you do” and it was that moment where i was like “i can’t complain about anything really” because even if i doubt like “how good is my content? why am i doing it? what’s the meaning of anything?” all of that doesn’t matter when you have that one mum saying “thank you”. despite what you think of what you do, purely because of it existing, you’re doing this really great thing - and that’s just stuck with me for a long time.

AHH First off my twin @sheisawantedman did the animation for me and it’s so cool!!! I’ve had this idea since Negan was introduced in the show and I’ve tried to do it a few times but it never came out right. (I still would like to push it farther but I’m happy with it, especially now with the animated parts!!) Hope you guys like it!! ⚡️⚡️⚡️

When she passed away, we were pretty deep into postproduction. When we came back to the edit room after New Year’s, it was so hard. We went through all her scenes. I felt very strongly that we don’t try to change her performance. We don’t adjust what happens to her in this movie. Emotionally, you can’t help recontextualize it, now that she’s gone. It’s almost eerie how there are scenes that have an emotional resonance and a meaning, especially now. She gives a beautiful and complete performance in this film.

vanessa and sonny are very close and have a lot of fun together,, okay that is all

I always imagined Symmetra’s turrets to have individual personalities and emotions. Or maybe she imagines that they have personalities and emotions… Either way, I get very sad when my turret children are destroyed, so I couldn’t resist drawing them. They’re hella cute, if I do say so myself.

90s gillian anderson wearing too-big flannels and chain smoking nervously bc she’s afraid she won’t land any acting jobs, then chain smoking bc she did land a job and now she’s worried every single day she’ll be fired bc she isn’t good enough

00s gillian anderson with a small child and still dealing with all the mega stardom she never asked for in the first place, carving out an acting career to prove that she deserves the hype 

10s gillian anderson emerging glorious from a string of wtf movies, starring in three shows at once and absolutely killing the entire game, flying all over the world to support the people she loves (even though she doesn’t get much sleep) and putting change in the swear jar for saying “heck” even though her favorite word is fuck

anonymous asked:

I like Mary. I think she's awesome. I don't see why she has to be evil.

Oh, boy, okay.

Listen you can like Mary all you want – I loved her too before the fucked up her entire story arc – but her entire arc was building up to be a villain, and a badass one that was going to go down with a fight. 

I’m REALLY not trying to be pedantic here, Nonny, but asks like this force me to pull out receipts, all of which I’m sure you’re not going to read, because who likes to be proved wrong, but I digress. I always end up sounding more harsh than I am when all I want to do is educate you on my perspective and what the narrative is teaching us.

THAT’S Why she’s a villain. When a character kills the title character of a show, they are coded as the bad guy unless they do a redemption arc that actually is a redemption.

Mary had NO redemption arc AT ALL. Even in S4, Mary is STILL manipulating and emotionally abusing Sherlock and John against each other with her fucking creepy-assed DVDs and her belittling of John in T6T. She still runs off to go do her little assassin things and still lied and manipulated everyone. And I know the argument is going to come up, but Mary’s gunshot was NOT a redemption. A redemption arc has the ex-villain doing a good deed and being genuinely sorry for their past actions. Not ONCE Mary has ever apologized for any of the shit she put everyone through. All of it was a plan, especially if she had creepy DVDs made FAIRLY RECENTLY (you can tell because of the hair style) to send out to people. Also:

YOU ARE EVIL IF YOU ACTIVELY OR POSTHUMOUSLY TELL SOMEONE TO GO KILL THEMSELVES.

That and Mary’s entire death scene was RIDICULOUS and completely contradicted EVERY rule that was established in this universe only 2 episodes prior on how characters die.

Nonny, Mary’s character arc is one I have been passionate about for many years, even before I was a Johnlocker, because her character was fascinating to me, and helped me understand the psychology and make sense of events that were happening in my life at the time. Right up until TAB, Mary was being coded as the next Moriarty. For some reason or another, Mofftiss decided to turn her into an “assassin with an heart of gold” and failed spectacularly.

If Mary truly was good, she WOULD HAVE TOLD JOHN FROM THE BEGINNING WHO SHE WAS, OR AT LEAST TOLD SHERLOCK SHE NEEDED HELP. HLV would have not played out as it did. Instead deciding that killing Sherlock was her only option so that she could continue to manipulate John, since she knew he was most malleable when he was grieving Sherlock.

You can read Mary’s character however you want, I could care less… well okay apparently I do because of this reply… But please, seriously consider that what became of her character really made no goddamned sense to the narrative arc the built for her and quite frankly really lazy writing. Just because she is a woman, doesn’t mean that she is nice and sweet and not abusive. Excusing her of her brand of emotional abuse and manipulation is really sexist.

People thought my mother was a nice person, too.

Ai Yazawa End-of-Book Notes 1-21

So at the end of every volume of NANA, Ai Yazawa has a brief paragraph about the manga or just some introspection about her life. They give great insight into the series and I think only a few are found on the scans of NANA online, so I thought I’d share them all!

Volume 1

The creator, Ai Yazawa, told us, “I created this story so that it could be enjoyed as a stand-alone and, at the same time, have a complete ending that could be connected to an ongoing series.  I hope you’ll look forward to the future of the two Nanas!”

Volume 2

A note from Ai Yazawa: “I had thought that if the two Nanas met each other, they would probably be constantly fighting, but they seem oddly friendly.  What’s up with that?!  It’s one of me (not so) seven wonders (ha-ha).”

Volume 3

Since childhood, the artists I’ve looked up to haven’t been writers and illustrators, but mostly musicians.  Music provides me the most emotional effect and excitement.  If there was no music, I don’t think my creative juices would boil.  Music is that important to my life.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 4

I realized one day that there are hit songs with the same names as the main female characters, NANA, JUNKO, and SACHIKO (the kanji for JUNKO is different, though).  It’s not that big a deal, but I sometimes just hum the melodies longingly.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 5

In the initial drafts, Nana’s band was a rockabilly band like the Stray Cats.  But due to various circumstances, I didn’t keep it that way.  But if they were rockabilly, Ren, Nobu and Shin would have had pompadours.  And Yasu too?

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 6

When I was a child, I used to take piano lessons.  Even after I stopped taking lessons, I bought sheet music I liked and continued playing.  I’ve had my hands full for several years now, but one of these days I’d like to learn how to play jazz piano, which I’ve wanted to do for years now.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 7

I had an opportunity to interview a group of professional musicians.  I showered them with questions, but they answered willingly, and it was very helpful.  I was having problems balancing the fictional world of manga-like simplicity and gorgeousness with a sense of reality.  But I realized again that what’s important is the humanity of the characters.

- Ai Yazawa

Volume 8

When I was in high school, there was a cool girl in my class who was a lone wolf.  I was really into a foreign New Romantic-type band then, and when she asked me one day, “Do you want to go to their concert together?” I was overwhelmed.  My heart fluttered more than when I was with my boyfriend (☺).  Have you had a Hachiko experience like that?  - Ai Yazawa

if season 3 doesn’t give us a scene of Allura sitting in the pilot’s seat of the Black Lion in the Black Paladin armour and breaking down and sobbing “please come back Shiro… I need you… I’m trying to be strong but it’s so hard without you” then what even was the point of Voltron
