so you win some

THE TIME IDIOTS EPISODE 307 TITLED “Nuance and subtlety? In my Time Idiots? It’s more likely than you think” MY THOUGHTS:
-I, like most of us, was pretty worried about setting an episode during the Vietnam war! Because that is one HUGE can of worms to open! Especially with Ken Burns’ documentary that came out a couple months ago (I still haven’t finished it. No spoilers!). But hey, I was downright pleasantly surprised by this episode. As much a one can be pleasantly surprised by dealing with childhood trauma!
     -But also, y’know Gorilla Grodd, so you win some you lose some. This is
      The Time Idiots after all.

-Victor Gaber hitting a dummy with staves. Check that off of the writer’s list of dream scenarios to put Victor Garber in.

-Amaya hitting things. This is your weekly every cast member can get it update.

-Lololol thank u Nate for telling us how Vietnam was Bad. 
     -Okay, so honestly the most unrealistic thing about this show that drives me bonkers is that PhD. haver Nate Heywood knows this much about every single period of history. NO PHD HAVER HAS THAT MUCH GENERALIZED KNOWLEDGE BC THEY ALL LOST THEIR MINDS LEARNING THE MINUTIAE OF THEIR ONE (1) THING.
      -Did they ever tell us what his dissertation was? I don’t remember, so I’m
       going to play a game every week where I try to guess what it was about.
      -There is absolutely zero way it wasn’t about American involvement in             WWII. Actually y’know what, this is going to have to be separate post             about my fucking headcanons about Nate’s PhD because I guess this is
       who I am now

-This turning Vancouver into Vietnam is HILARIOUSLY bad. We got one (1) fern and half (½) a tropical plant. They must be reused for every set. Thank u LoT for keeping things real, even when dealing with serious shit. It also  looks like the costume budget got slashed yet again. Only got $5 and a a half spent gift card to the army navy surplus store this time.

-The actor they have playing Mick’s dad is straining real hard to talk like that, hoo boy he does not sound great. But I do love Evan Jones and he is Trying His Best. (addendum for later in the episode: OH NO IT GOT MUCH WORSE. I actually laughed out loud at it at one point. I can only imagine he lost his voice for a week after this gig)

-OH MY FUCKING GOD STEIN STEALING SCIENTISTS FROM TIME. Jesus christ. I can’t believe Ava didn’t step through a portal and slap Martin right upside the head.

-Amaya does not understand you or your feelings please stop having them at her.
     -Nate and Ray have a weekly feelings corner where they force everyone to
      have feelings. They have had several large heavy objects thrown at their
      heads.

-FUCKING GORILLA GRODD. I just. I can’t. Maybe 1967 was not the best place to put him, but y’know, but also still wasn’t the worst thing I’ve seen so, kudos show.

-Mick’s story this episode was excellent and I don’t know if my vaguely humorous incoherent yelling can do it justice. As someone with a shit dad, it showed a surprising amount of nuance that I did not expect at all, and I just would like to commend the writers for. Also Dominic Purcell did a great job with the material, which I also did not expect.
     -Like fuck Dom that was real good my dudes

-HUH THAT’S A LOT OF TIME COINCIDENCES ISN’T IT, GANG.

-Was that…supposed to be…Lyndon Johnson????? C’MON MY DUDES YOU DIDN’T EVEN TRY. That guy was like 5’8” and weighed about 100 pounds soaking wet.
     -Honestly I don’t know if I can think about anything else for the rest of the       episode.
     -THE NOSE

-Altho to be fair, Grodd ain’t wrong about getting rid of the US making the world a better place. The idiots might be better of just letting him do it.

-(Also I am p surprised at how not terrible Grodd looks. Like, he’s not great, but he’s not nearly as terrible looking as I thought he would be. Someone hit the jackpot in the writer’s room couch and they got so many quarters for the cgi machine!)

-My body is ready for a Planet of the Apes episode. Just let Grodd do what he wants!

-LITTLE ON THE NOSE PAPA RORY WITH THAT THERE ARE NO GOOD GUYS HERE.

-Jax yr doing great sweetie i’m proud of u

-Also Gideon was perhaps a little too chill about the Grodd situation? She’s clearly about had it with the idiots. Give Gideon a vacation 2k18.

-Fuckin Newton. Sometimes I literally cannot deal with how fucking stupid this show is. AND I LOVE IT.

-Zari is a goddamn angel superstar and I love her so much

-I am crying at the most misfit family. SARA’S LITTLE BRO JAX. But also y are u throwing a ninja star at the pie sara? Like y does everyone have to be so extra ALL THE TIME.

14. TO MOUNT LANAYRU

“Be sure to take the time to soothe your mount… that’s the only way it will know how you truly feel.” Your advice was quite helpful- thank you. This little one and I are getting along quite well now. At first, I wasn’t sure if I should outfit him with all of the royal gear. I thought maybe he should have to earn it first. But it works! He wears it like a true natural. I’m trying to be a bit more empathetic. Benefit of the doubt, you know? See that mountain? That’s Mount Lanayru. It takes its name from the Goddess of Wisdom. Lanayru’s decree is very specific. It says: “No one is allowed, under the age of seventeen… for only the wise are permitted a place upon the mountain.” I’ve prayed at the Spring of Courage and at the Spring of Power, yet neither awoke anything inside me. But maybe up there… perhaps the Spring of Wisdom, the final of the three, will be the one. To be honest, I have no real reason to think that will be the case. But there’s always the chance that the next moment will change everything. Tomorrow… is my seventeenth birthday. So then I shall go… and make my way up the mountain.

tfw you love a Thing and your Friends but sometimes the two just don’t mix

This was a sad Eurovision for Spain not because we lost, but because we wanted zero points SO BAD we got frustrated when someone gave us five.

Hey kids! So here’s the thing

Seventeen is nominated for three (3) MAMA’s this year, and it’s normal to want your bias group to win, but here are some things we need to remember:

  • People are not obligated to vote, you are not less of a carat for not voting 24/7. Dont, by any means, go around bashing people because they aren’t voting or leaving rude asks telling them to vote, we are all carats, we all love the guys, so let’s be kind to each other!
  • Don’t get involved in fan wars(??? This should be a given, don’t go around insulting other groups or fandoms, let’s not become THAT toxic fandom. Remember we are doing this for the boys so just ignore other fandoms (especially if their being rude) and concentrate in getting svt the MAMA in a positive way (Do I sound like a hippie?? Yes. Do I care?? No! Keep it kind people!!! )
  • If by any chance we don’t win please don’t try to put the blame on someone else, I’ve seen big accounts (not svt stans, but still) calling people out just because they didn’t win. KEEP IT CLASSY, if we don’t win (which hopefully we will) don’t go around bashing people!!!
  • It costs you 0$ to just keep it nice, voting season can get ugly, let’s respect each other and just do this for the guys!!
  • Being mean to other people doesn’t achieve anything, at the risk of sounding cheesy we are kind of like a family, so be nice, be kind and above all be respectful!!

I gotta say this is the most fun I’ve had making something in awhile

Need help?  Dimple has some hints he wrote for you himself below the cut!

Preparation is key 🔑 it literally takes 20 minutes (give or take a few depending on what you’re making) to prepare meals for tomorrow if you plan to be on the go. ‘I don’t have enough time ’ is NO excuse for spending $50+ dollars on take out a week because you were too lazy to buy and make your own food. Food that you know exactly how it’s cooked and what it’s cooked with. Who knows what exactly you’re getting when you buy food out? Even if you believe it’s healthy-may not be as good as you think. So instead of scrolling through Instagram for half an hour, or watching two extra YouTube videos, or watching TV, use that time to make your breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks for the next day if you’re going to be on-the-go all day. (School, work, etc etc). You’ll save a heap of money and notice better results for it. HEY, you could even prep your meals whilst you watch TV/YouTube and so on…win win situation right? Some Inspo in this photo is some of my favourites! Yoghurt, muesli and fruit for brekky and some brown rice, chicken and Veges for lunch! If that’s not what floats your boat, come up with another idea for your meals and snacks! Omelettes, smoothies, Sandwiches, leftover dinners, stir fries, salads, fruit, Veges and hommus, homemade protein brownies/muffins/bliss balls, ETC! So many ideas. Just spend the time to prep your meals and you’ll feel much better for it-and your purse will too 😜😜

Luster [Part 10]

Did not get where I wanted to go, but took a scenic route and hammered out some meta for ya boy Taako. Considering where this story is headed, I’m kind of glad I spent as much time on him as I did.

Please comment/like/reblog/let me know what you think! 

[Part 1]  [Part 2]  [Part 3]  [Part 4] [Part 5][Part 6] [Part 7] [Part 8] [Part 9]

Taako can’t breathe. He can’t move and he can’t breathe- but the lack of air doesn’t hurt him. Nothing hurts him. It’s true that he can’t breathe, but the reality is he just doesn’t.

He doesn’t breathe, and Taako cannot move. There’s nothing to move. No eyes, no hands, no limbs. No lungs or chest or blood. He’s solid, stuck, unyielding and immutable. And he remains this way.

If I can’t have them grooms then I will fucking draw them grooms now stop doing us dirty @intsys 

Also:

that bottle contains grima’s blessings lmao

who should you fight: dirk gently edition
  • dirk gently: he probably won't fight back, but that doesn't mean beating him will be easy. he took two crossbow arrows to the shoulder and kept going for god's sake. besides, why the fuck would you want to fight dirk? he is the sweetest, most pure boy there is and you'll have farah, todd, and amanda to answer to
  • todd brotzman: he's pretty scrappy, but lacks technique. you might be able to beat todd and honestly he might thank you for it
  • farah black: farah is a professional bodyguard, owner of many many guns, and all around bad-ass. you will not win in a physical fight. however, farah is pretty insecure and neurotic so with some emotional manipulation you could maybe win. i would hate you forever though
  • amanda brotzman: she's scrappy as hell, possibly even more so than her brother. unless she has an attack during the fight, it should be a pretty even match. if you fight her though, you'll have to fight all four of the rowdy three so do not fight amanda
  • bart curlish: depends on who you are. if you're a bad person, you'll be killed immediately. if you're a good person, you won't be killed but you likely won't be able to hurt bart either. kind of a lose/lose-worse situation
  • ken: i mean yes you could definitely beat this boy in a fight but why would you want to? let him rest
  • the rowdy three: are you fucking kidding me have you ever seen the rowdy three? do not fight them, you will get obliterated
  • estevez: would not recommend fighting estevez. he's pretty strong and has professional training, and probably works through his emotions by punching things. right now, he has a lot of emotions
  • zimmerfield: honestly it's a bit of a toss up. he's pretty old and i don't think he's gotten that much action in the field recently, but his eyebrows are powerfully hypnotic. do not fight if you get easily transfixed on things
  • gordon rimmer: oh man yeah you could definitely beat gordon rimmer, just make sure he doesn't have the electric crossbow and that his goonies aren't nearby
  • patrick spring: it depends on when you fight him. young patrick spring? probably a bad idea. middle-aged patrick spring with the steamsuit? also a bad idea. old patrick spring? yeah you could probably take him then, he's older and has resigned to death anyway
  • lydia spring: you want to fight a literal child? go ahead i guess, you'll beat her but will get killed by farah
  • hugo friedkin: he's dumb as hell but also pretty jacked and a federal agent. i would not recommend fighting friedkin, unless it's like a reading fight
  • colonel riggins: he's part of the cia but is also an gentle old man. you could definitely beat colonel riggins
  • rapunzel the corgi: what the fuck? why would you want to fight a dog you sick fuck
