so has this been posted here yet

anonymous asked:

Hello! johnlock anon here from a month or so ago? I thought I'd update you on my situation. I'm feeling pretty damn good. I've began disassociating myself from tjlc completely and it feels like a shroud has been lifted. I went through my old posts and the I noticed something: everything I had tagged tjlc, most of it was negative. I actually cringed at myself. What did I let myself get into. Anyway, my follower list has had quite the reshuffle and I've opened my blog to new and different blogs +

           * I’m not quite ready to reveal my blog yet but I wanted to thank you for your insight and advice. I feel good. I feel lighter.            


omg Anon I am so so happy for you - you can’t know how thrilled I am reading your words.  And your idea of reading through your blog to see what was driving these feelings was brilliant.  I’m so very glad you’re feeling better, and that you’ve found your space within fandom.  You’ll reveal your blog when you’re ready (and if you want to.)  That’s something I think has gotten a bit lost in all this - we are allowed to do fandom on our own terms.  I’m so glad you’ve found your own terms.

Thank you so much for letting me know how you’re doing!

What I think is interesting is that for the first 6 episodes, it’s Yuri who is protective/possessive of Victor. Not in an unhealthy way, of course; but it’s Yuri who wants to show the world that he’s the only one who can satisfy Victor and he’s the one who fought to keep Victor with him. He even says: 

Now, as it’s been proven by interviews and such, Victor doesn’t know Yuri said this because all though he was watching the conference, Yuri was speaking in Japanese here, not English (which is what Yuri and Victor talk to one another in). 

YET IN EPISODE 7:

This little insight is so important because it shows that not only is Victor also protective/possessive of Yuri (which I guess we could have gathered from all the hugging and cuddling Victor does with him), but this strong feeling he has for Yuri is evident to others. 

Sorry this post is so random but I felt it was an interesting parallel so…

I posted this on Instagram and I’m going to post it here aswell because I’m so sick of the stigma of bisexuality. It’s real. We exist. It’s valid. So fucking deal with it. My mother and aunt were the ones saying that shit to me and I was furious but nothing has changed their mind… yet? However posting this allowed me to see the support from my school and how for the majority I go to school with people that are very accepting which made me happy. I have been out to my friends for a year and have loved the freedom but when Lauren Jauregui @ssweet-dispositionn came out in November it gave me the final push to come out to my family and I love her even more for that. Maybe at some point my family will come around but for now I sure as fuck am not going to let what they say affect me. I am bisexual and so proud.

Samantha Bee

One of my favorite things about [the Brexit piece] is that we had David Tennant reading Scottish tweets about Donald Trump. Here’s our text conversation [of how that came about]. We had been writing jokes about Sam doing accents terribly, so I texted her to ask: “How’s your Scottish accent?” And she wrote back, “About as good as my Australian accent.” I said, “Maybe we can get Patrick Stewart to do it,” and her answer was, “My agent reps David Tennant. Hold on.” In an hour, we were emailing David Tennant! [Laughs] He was on his way to the Broadchurch set and pulled over to the side of the road to shoot the video with his phone. That’s how our show gets made in a nutshell!

Guys… I haven’t decided what to do yet, but I think I should inform you all here and now:

All episodes of the upcoming Steven Bomb have been released/leaked.

They are out there. I will not post them here because even I think that’s too far. I’m sorry to everyone who expected me to be on top of the leaks, but this is absurd. I love leaks, I will watch these episodes, but I do think CN should try harder not to leak their own episodes like this. People will of course always go looking for them, but CN should secure their servers more and not put episodes up early anywhere for anyone. They will leak.

This might be officially released episodes but they were never meant to be spread outside of their customers, so I still regard these as leaks.

Either way, be careful. It’s time to blacklist SU again if you don’t want to get spoiled.

EVOLUTION OF THE WHALES

Christmas is almost here, so what better topic to post on than the evolution of the whales!?!?

65 million years ago the earth was devastated by a catastrophic meteor impact that resulted in the death of the dinosaurs. Mammals back then had been slowly evolving but remained small and mostly nocturnal, yet when the dinosaurs perished they quickly took over abandoned niches in the skies, land and water becoming one of the most incredible dynasties the world has ever seen.
Some of the most beautiful of this diverse group are the marine mammals, the cetaceans (whales, dolphins etc). The ancestor of the whales left life on land to make the oceans their home. With over 86 species existing today of whales, dolphins and other marine mammals, they make up the order Cetacea which include the magnificent blue whale reaching a whopping 30 metres in length to the little known porpoise species, Vaquita reaching only 4.5 metres long.
The evolution of the whales is documented in an incredibly rich fossil record dating back to over 50 million years ago…

Pakicetus, 50 million years ago
Pakicetus is regarded as the most basal (earliest) whale. Although Pakicetus primarily lived on land, it is the first of the land mammals to show significant developments towards a future in ruling the oceans. Pakicetus is known from only a few incomplete specimens found in Pakistan but it is predicted to have been about a metre in length. Interestingly, Pakicetus was an artiodactyl (or even-toed ungulate, an order which includes the giraffes, camels, pigs and cows), however, Pakicetus shows some defining characteristics of evolving for life in the water such as elongation of the skull and body and the teeth begin to lose the heterodontus nature. The eyes of Pakicetus were also high on its head suggesting a capability to hunt not only on land but in water too.

Ambulocetus, 49 million years ago
Ambulocetus literally means “walking whale” and shows more extreme divergence towards an aquatic lifestyle. Ambulocetus shows even greater elongation of the skull and simplification of its dental morphology. Unlike the marine reptiles of a bygone era, Ambulocetus would have swam through the water with vertical motion. The morphology of Ambulocetus’ inner ear is also similar to that of modern cetaceans meaning it could probably hear well underwater. Ambulocetus also shares some similarities with modern crocodiles such as high nostrils, pointed teeth and a long skull, making it likely that Ambulocetus was a deadly ambush predator, a far cry from its gentle giant descendants.

Rodhocetus, 46 million years ago

Rodhocetus fossils are also restricted to Pakistan and beautifully depict a familiar whale like skeleton with much shorter limbs and elongated hands and feet (that were most likely webbed). The nasal openings of Rodhocetus has also moved higher up the skull and closer to the eyes. Again, Rodhocetus shows specific morphologies that are characteristic of artiodactyls, they have a double-pulley astralagus (heel bone) found in all modern even toed ungulates.  

Basilosaurus, 37 million years ago
Basilosaurus is probably the earliest skeleton that very closely resembles modern whales, the name means “king lizard” which is highly inaccurate but fits well when considering that Basilosaurus had a long and slender body that could reach an almighty 18 metres in length. Basilosaurus also shows an extraordinary reduction in limb size compared to its ancestors meaning it is in no way adapted to live on the land any longer. At the time of Basilosaurus’ existence it was one of the largest marine animals to have existed since the days of marine reptiles (such as Liopleurodon and Mosasaurs). The teeth of Basilosaurus had similar morphology to modern killer whales indicating they were highly active hunters.

The whales of today are some of the most remarkable creatures to have ever existed. We often stand and stare in awe at the immense sizes of prehistoric marine animals in museums and it is easy to forget that we are living at the same time of the largest animals to have ever existed, past of present, the whales. We then often neglect to appreciate how magnificent these creatures are. Sadly this has led to a massive depletion in their numbers and diversity due to pollution, fishing and hunting. The whales and all other cetaceans have some of the most wonderful social structures known in the animal kingdom as well as incredible intelligence. In the last 50 million years this order has conquered oceans across the world and delighted humans all over. Cetaceans are fast becoming more endangered and if we do not act, in years to come our descendants will wonder how their ancestors let these wonderful creatures slip through their fingers.

Here are some pals hanging out! This has originally been flatly colored with a beach in the background as commissioned by @arc-hammer (don’t worry I emailed them the colored version they paid for) but I don’t like how it came out so I’m going to cower behind my shame and post the line art instead. Landscape backgrounds and I just aren’t meant to be ;v;

I recently remade my blog so if you haven’t re-followed me yet, please do so! My old blog had 8.7k followers so I’m hoping to get that back eventually.

One Year Appreciation Post

//So as of Febuary 18th, Sahlin’s blog will have been active for a whole year. I’m shit with anniversary dates (literally, the worst), and I might be busy next weekend anyway, so I decided to seize the moment now to get this out of the way. 

I thought long and hard about HOW to go about doing this (I’m poor and can’t do giveaways, have no talent as an artist, and write so much already that a writing thing just seems lackluster from me), and while I toyed with a few different ways (let him do it himself? rofl), I decided instead to focus on those people and muses who have had a lasting impact on his character throughout the past year, and who continue to be significant factors to both he and I being here. That said, this certainly doesn’t include everyone who follows Sahlin or everyone who has ever interacted with him (I can’t), so know that I appreciate all of you, even those who are just here to read <3, and that I am grateful for everyone who has stuck with us through this past year.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

Melinda May & Phil Coulson

We are all gathered here today for a quick yet thorough elaboration on one of my previous hot takes:  You honestly don’t want me to write an entire essay on how these two have been “platonically” married for the past four seasons. No vows or rings may have been exchanged between the two but they sure as hell have been acting like the most married set of individuals I know. So here I am, writing this small meta on how this has been coming for a long time. 

Where to begin… I would say with respect. All well written relationships that I personally enjoy begin with a level of trust and respect and this exactly what they have given the audience. Melinda and Phil have gravitated towards each time and again, like they’re each other’s constant, you know? It’s this layer of their relationship that gets them to where they are now. All those times where they’ve had each other’s back and been at their most vulnerable has led for them to quickly prioritize each other and raise each other to a level of importance that is hard to tear down. I mean, THEY HAVE HISTORY to prove it. They have endured so much together (and not just everything they have shown us but also all the implied past missions.) If it begins with this kind of emotional connection, it is easy to see where it might lead to a deeper emotional connotation. It is not a huge leap. 

Second of all, I’ve always felt that with Melinda she has always been very clear with regards to her feelings. The fact that she had to make it clear to her husband at the time that she “works” with Phil and is “married” to him speaks volumes. If we were to ever have a confession of love back in season 3, that was it for me. At least on Melinda’s behalf. To me, Melinda’s feelings towards Phil have always been extremely transparent yet never fully divulged where you go “yes, she LOVES him” if that make sense. Melinda was always been more of the type to demonstrate how actions are louder than words (since she too is also a woman of few words.) It was all in the subtleties with her. I always go back to that scene where Phil is injured in a desert (I think it was the desert) and Melinda rushes off a helicopter and checks his pulse and right there, ever so swiftly, we see a soft and relieved smile play upon her lips. See right there? That’s the kind of subtleties this show has been playing with since the earlier seasons. I could listen several but we all know that “You mean a lot to me. A lot.” takes it all. We have Melinda “I Can’t Show Vulnerability At Any Cost” May confess what’s probably already been demonstrated but never articulated to Phil. She was so adamant about it as well, like she had to make him understand how much she cared and how much she valued his trust and that she would never betray him. Never. 

As for Phil, a character I enjoy in every scene, this has been the seasons of realization for him. His storyline and how he got to this particular phase in his life has been some form of awakening. I think because Melinda May has put barriers all throughout her life, including with Phil, it’s never really been an option to go there for him. I think, unconsciously, he’s loved her all his life but has shut that particular part away because he never really thought it would happen. He tried finding love elsewhere and it didn’t pan out. It was like he was always drawn back to her or life would draw them together again and again. Yet, he’s always known how important she is to me. There’s never been anything else to imply the contrary. He’s fallen down some major crisis whenever May leaves him or is emotionally cut off (yes, the “left hand” reference goes nicely right there.) Also, why else would Edward James Olmos’s character take Melinda? Yeah, pretty self explanatory. Anyways, aside from all the side jabs from other characters who reference the closeness and familiarity between the two, there’s the concept of time. They are two grown adults, in their prime, who have literally died and have quickly reassessed what’s really important in their lives. Nothing quite like death to make you realize what’s really important. This is exactly what’s happened to Phil. He is no longer waiting. There is nothing left to hold them both back. No husband. No past commitments. No emotional baggage. Phil has finally “woken up” to what has laid dormant within him, as cliched as it sounds. 

All in all, the sheer level of intimacy between these two throughout all the seasons should make it apparent where the writers were going. I think they have laid a nice framework and are now executing it to perfection because these two were never a huge leap, in terms of narrative. They were going there one way or another. 

p.s. Phil Coulson pulling Melinda May as close as possible during that kiss should tell you everything and how long he’s waited to do that. Also, it’s true love if he knows you like tea instead of coffee.
