Hi guys!! You guys have been asking for this video amongst others for quite some time and I FINALLY found some spare time to sit down and film one explaining how I edit my photos here on studyblr. It’s my first video and I know it’s not the best so please bear with me! Don’t forget to like or subscribe if you want to, I’ll be posting a video on how I use my planner soon. ❤️ Also, I’m always open to hearing some feedback!
I’ve read lots of, amazing, swen metas written based off a variety of hidden clues throughout the show - clothing, parallels, double meanings, and subtext.
This one could be insignificant but I’m going to go based off of the background lighting and it’s distinctive placement.
I’m on mobile so please bear with me.
The top 4 gifs show Emma and Regina in perfect balance - Yin and Yang.
Whenever Regina and Emma are in the same shot and are working together or against eachother, they are in perfect harmony. Reginas background remains consistently darker to Emmas light - even in the bug scene, Regina has a darker lighting casting on her than Emma.
But the last gif, we see a switch occur within the two women’s background and “aura”. We are are well aware of how Emma completely changed from the woman we knew and slowly degraded, losing hope with each episode. We all know when it truly began - in season 5.
Merlin said to Emma, when she chose to cast the curse and turning Hook into a dark one,
“Of all the paths I for saw, you have chosen the darkest.”
Emma became darker essentially by choosing to remain at his side and not letting fate take its course. She chose to save a man who was destined to die at that moment by her hand.
That scene shows just that. After Emma saves Hook from Neverland, as she is adjusting his hook, we see BOTH Emma and Killian standing in a darkened background, while Regina is standing in the light.
Emma has stepped into the darkness with Hook, while Regina has stepped into the light.
Emma is clearly determined to stay in that darkness, as we saw when she actually married Hook.
The balance is still there between Regina and Emma, just the roles have changed. Meaning this time Regina is going to have to pull Emma out of the darkness. Emma and Hook will never work because they are not in balance - so instead of empowering eachother, we see Emma slowly being weakened, while Hook thrived.
We’ve seen Regina try this season to pull Emma from that dark place when she invited her out for drinks - after another one of Hooks betrayals. But we saw something unusual - Emma actually refusing to open up to Regina. Throughout the show we’ve seen Emma consistently reach out to Regina, save Regina and look for her happy ending and plead to be friends.
This was Emma refusing to leave the darkness she is in.

Hey. @impracticaldemon and @eliz1369 tagged me to join this five-facts thing, thank you! It’s a bit lengthy so bear with me please.
1/ One of my most precious memories is connected with my exhibition’s opening in 2012. I read two verses for our guests. It was an amazing experience of public performance. I was head over the hills about Transtromer so I chose a fragment of his ‘Vermeer’ and ‘As I walked out one evening’ by Wystan Hugh Auden (whom I love too). I recited Transtromer’s verse in Russian and Auden’s one in English. I didn’t give a damn that the absolute majority of the public doesn’t understand English. I practised a lot and I tried to express the sentiment at the very least. My friend supported me with a background keyboard music. It was hilarious that we had time to draw, to organize exhibitions and to perform.
Hi, I’m REALLY mad right now at this stupid website so please bear with me.
A certain artist (based in the Philippines might I add) recently made a J.CO (Indonesian donut restaurant chain) gijinka recently, and people accused them of whitewashing their gijinka because the character’s skin was too bright.
I, as an Indonesian, am seriously offended.
Not by the gijinka,
but by the masses of people who are being offended ON MY BEHALF FOR THE WRONG REASONS.
The most insulting thing about this whole situation is that this website fucking auto-assumes that all brightly colored characters have been whitewashed and that this is always a bad thing and racist because of how things are in the West.
Indonesia is not the United States. Indonesia is not a country in Europe. Indonesia is a multicultural society in Asia made up mostly of Southeast Asians, Melanesians, and East Asians. You can NOT apply the same exact sensitivities and narrative to Indonesia as you can in the West.
…Let me give you a quick rundown:
Racism in Indonesia is not always about about a white skinned race oppressing a darker skinned race. If anything, it’s more to do with Xenophobia and Religion.
Following up on that, here’s the shocker: The DISCRIMINATED MINORITYin Indonesia has a lighter skin color than the PRIVILEGED MAJORITY.
East Asians, mostly Chinese, who generally have brighter skin tones than your regular Southeast Asian person, are regular targets of hate speech, discrimination, racism, and even a 1998 genocide that still strikes fear and opens up old wounds in their hearts upon mention.
PLEASE GET THAT INTO YOUR DENSE SKULL.
Indonesia has serious racial problems, but you can NOT automatically assume everything as from a western country perspective.
To do so is seriously, seriously racist.
The intention was “right” from your perspective, but please. Do your research, and don’t automatically always assume that light skin is whitewashing. You’re touching on a VERY sensitive and often radically different subject depending on which nation you are talking about.
It’s INSULTING to your fellow PoCs.
I feel insulted. I feel like this website just made a unanimous decision for me because I’m either too “uneducated” “uninformed”, “tolerant” or WHATEVER the fuck you think of Indonesians to feel offended for myself. This website made me think that the Indonesian restaurant chain CAN ONLY be run by Southeast Asians when there are hundreds, if not thousands of East Asian J.CO employees whose lives and stories, and struggle against discrimination you’ve just invalidated just because of your westernized view of racism.
AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF, THE ARTIST YOU’RE MAD AT IS A PoC FROM THE SAME REGION AS INDONESIA THEMSELVES, (the Philippines) AN ARTIST WHO HAD NO INTENTION OF WHITEWASHING. WHO JUST SAW REALLY NICE COLORS THAT WORKED AND THOUGHT IT WAS COOL. WHO KNOWS FULL WELL THE STRUGGLE SOUTHEAST ASIA HAS HAD AGAINST EUROPE IN THE COLONIAL PERIOD.
IT’S AS IF YOU’RE TRYING TO LECTURE A VICTIM ON WHY THEY SHOULD FEEL VICTIMIZED INSTEAD OF UNDERSTANDING OUR STORY. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU, TUMBLR.
with all that’s been happening i just want to remind that now more than ever it’s important to show appreciation and support not only to donghyuck himself, but to the fansites who have expressed that they will continue to stand behind him. some haven’t voiced their opinion yet, others are generally inactive, so below i have listed the few that have explicitly said that they will support him despite the rumors and the hate he’s been receiving.
feel free to add to this list if any other fansites happen to say anything regarding this matter or if i forgot anything!
I’m sure someone else has designed a box-head Mettaton but I wanted to have a go at it. Yes, that’s his adorable news reporting suit because I can’t say no to lots of red. I really like this design so far! Poor Frisk has to suffer through this fab dweeb’s BS. Please help them.
Imagine Tony going up and hanging with the Guardians for a while after Civil War and during his stay, he picks up a few of their,, like,, unusual alien mannerisms and stuff and so Rhodey and Peter are Super Freaked Out when he gets back home and starts greeting them by touching their noses and then sliding it up across their head like he was shown how to do on a planet he stayed at for a month, or how he had to be reminded that yes Tony you can eat your food warm that is how we do it on Earth remember, because for the past few weeks him and the guardians had had to eat their food icy cold.
And Tony can’t even be annoyed because holy fuck he’s literally been on other planets and overcome his worst fears and made some brilliant new friends and he’s just too fucking happy to care that he accidentally slapped Rhodey across the face in greeting yesterday because that’s just what you do on Morag, damn it, I’m sorry Rhodey-Bear please don’t hit me back your punches hurt-
