so-i'm-okay-with-this-development

okay but i know a lot of people are on the knight jeremy train, but hear me out for a second

king jeremy

one of the youngest kings out of the current kings to rule. he may not know a whole lot, but he tries his best to learn all he can so he can run a successful kingdom. who always puts his people first and is one of the kindest rulers. who creates beautiful buildings and structures either for people to live in or to decorate the kingdom. who is fair and kind and courageous. a man who is a nightmare on the battlefield and can destroy armies with little effort. a man who charges into battle with hell’s fire in his veins. who, after every battle, weeps for the lost lives and goes to the homes of the knights who gave their lives to say his condolences to the families, should their families be alive. a king who gives it his all to protect everyone, even if they have committed crimes.

literally just give me king jeremy who tries his best and is always optimistic and trying to make his kingdom a welcome place for all to come to.

Ummmm so can we talk about how important it is to reassure young girls everywhere that developing feelings for your girl best friend isn’t wrong or voyeuristic. It’s normal. It’s fine. You’re not dirty and you shouldn’t feel guilt.

  • Brain: go on and tell me the plot of this, i'm waiting
  • Me: okay so there was a king who wanted to have the love of an ice fairy, so he himself set off on a journey with his men for the pursuit of this fairy, but one of his men, his best knight, developed a relationship with the fairy and i don't know if this is pliroy or oturi
  • Brain: what do you think of otapliroy?
  • Me:
  • Me: i love you so much

Okay, so we have a new chapter and it got me screaming like an idiot at 2:30am.

I still can’t believe what major character development happened in the last few chapters, but this really takes the crown. Katsuki’s behavior in this chapter was just… so adorable

First of all: He listens to All Might and assures him, that his and Izuku’s secret is safe with him. That’s no surprise for me, but what actually had me in tears is the way he treated Izuku.

We don’t see any insults and we all know by now, that “Deku” doesn’t mean the thing it did at the beginning. Not even for Katsuki.

But what really melted my heart was this scene:

Katsuki gave Izuku advice. HE HAD A FUCKING MENTAL BREAKDOWN AND STILL ANALYZED IZUKU’S FIGHTING STYLE AND GAVE HIM ADVICE ON IT WHILE THEY’RE VACUUM CLEANING THE DORMS?!?!

And of course he doesn’t look at Izuku during his little talk and of course he had to say that ‘it pisses him off”
I don’t know what you guys think, but for me it sounds like somthing like “We’re going to fight side by side from now on, so you better improve you lil’ shit, because I’m a perfectionists and we both need to be perfect.” 

And JUST LOOK AT IZUKU’S SMILE HERE. YOU CAN FEEL HOW HAPPY HE IS! This “I can’t show how happy I am, because I’m afraid Kacchan’s blowing my face off if I thank him, so I’ll just stay calm”- smile, but you can hear him screaming from the inside. And this little “…” ‘ seem to me, as Izuku really needed to think about what he’s going to say, because he’s just so startled, that Katsuki “I’ll End You” Bakugou gave him advice. The same person who just recently told him, he’s gonna surpass him, Izuku “The Chosen One” Midoriya.
Oh I’m so happy. This chapter made me so happy. 

And I can’t shake off the feeling that Katsuki had more in mind with this fight than to finally let loose. He made the first step in Izuku’s direction. He said “If you’ve got the strongest person helping you out, you can’t be losing.” PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND! HE MADE THE FIRST MOVE TO REHABILITATE THEIR RELATIONSHIP, NOT IZUKU, KATSUKI DID WHEN HE FINALLY WAS READY AND I’M SO PROUD OF HIM TO FINALLY ACKNOWLEDGE IZUKU AND HIS POWERS- I could imagine that he really knows that Izuku was always there, he knows it, he knew it before, but this fight most likely showed him- yes, Izuku’s still there when he’s at his worst and when he can’t think rationally. 

Izuku is there and he will stay.

What would’ve played a huge part to, that Izuku was the first one to ever stand up against him, even when they were kids. 

God, I love them both so much I can’t anymore.


And this is the scene that got me laughing my ass off. Katsuki doesn’t even try to hide, that he was the one who started this necessary fight- he looks Aizawa straight in the eyes and speaks with confidence, while Izuku stares at the ground and looks like a little kid who’s mom just asked if he was the one who smeared her expensive lipstick all over himself and the bathroom walls and he can’t deny it because- oh well, he’s the only child. But Izuku, as the great friend he is, doesn’t want Katsuki to get all the punishment, since he was the one who accepted the fight in the first place.

I know I said this in numerous posts before, but- we just witnessed the start of something great. Katsuki actually made the first step (I’m proud of you, my boy) and I’m so excited to see how they’ll rehabilitate their friendship and what obstacles they will face. May it be between them, or something else.

We’ve never had a chapter like this before. We never saw them this close before and we definitely never saw these two, without them having this “unsolved issue”-vibe around them.

And now we get to see them like this:

And here have them all serious-

and then bickering like the little children they are (and Deku, what you said really doesn’t make any sense btw.)


So, what’s left to say is CONGRATULATIONS HORIKOSHI SENSEI YOU MANAGED TO MAKE ME CRY AGAIN BUT WOW AN IMPROVEMENT IT’S BECAUSE OF JOY AND NOT OUT OF PAIN! THANK YOU! THANK YOU FOR THIS BLESSING.


Bonus:

Have a tiny little Wonder Duo, facing their punishment + Katsuki actually joining his classmates in finding adjectives to describe the unfortunate situation Deku and himself are in.

okay tomorrow i will try again, and you will?

give the painful earnest hemingway another chance.

(watching so much sports anime ahaha–) 

okay so I had an AU in mind where Sasuke actually hasn’t joined any sport in high school before (because he’s so focused on his brother, etc.) until he meets Sakura.

vixensheart  asked:

I request "So are you guys dating, or?" for BbRae! XD

YOU GOT IT. I’m kind of hyped about YJ S3, and I’m looking forward to some more BB character development, so, I’ve had this idea in my head for a while! A potential ‘what if’ situation. :) I hope it’s okay! For obvious reasons, he’s aged up here. 


“You came,” she breathed, her expression more of relief than anything else.

It was the first time in a long time that he’d seen her act not so indifferent; she was genuine in her pleasure with seeing him again. It gave him hope, made him feel a glimmer of that exhilirating anticipation, that he was something more to her. Especially when she looked at him like that

Beast Boy morphed back into his human shape and dusted off his uniform. Sparing her a small smile, and spending a few moments to appreciate her uncanny beauty, he finally found his voice. “And you’re not actually evil.”

Smooth. Real smooth.

It was a miracle neither Bart or Jaime had been there to hear that one. 

Suddenly, her eyes were like purple steel. She crossed the room towards him, closing the distance in a few strides, and her hands came up to clutch at his shoulders. He tried to ignore the way his heart pounded in his chest at her unexpected nearness. “Gar, you can’t be here. You have to go. Now.” 

The seriousness in her tone had returned, but the way her brows furrowed, and her bottom lip jutted out, told him that she was just worried about his well-being. 

He shook his head in protest. “I can’t just leave you here, Rae. Not when I know the truth. Come on, we have to go tell the others what’s really going on.” He grabbed hold of her hand firmly, not waiting for her consent, and tugged her after him.

Raven broke free of his grasp immediately after giving him quite a bit of resistance. “No! I can’t!” She cried out.

He stilled, watching her back away reluctantly, like it was the last thing she wanted to do. “Beast Boy, I can’t go with you.” Her voice softened, and she averted her gaze to the ground.

“Why not?” Even to his own ears, he sounded desperate.

[the rest is under the cut!]

Okay, but consider a few things:

Michael and Lindsay’s baby being the sweetest, quietest person ever

Their kid somehow developing a British accent, or using a British accent on certain words because of “Uncle” Gavin (And Michael raging about it)

An Extra Life stretch goal for their kid to watch some of Michael’s best content (for example, Let’s Play Goat Simulator, or any Extra Life stretch goal that he’s been a part of)

A video of their kid, when they’re only a year old, saying, “Fuck you, Gavin”

A young kid with Michael’s baby face going around the office raging and swearing

Some of these contradict each other, they’re not meant to be considered all at the same time, lol. But this one is the most important: 

Michael cried when he saw Lindsay in her wedding dress, imagine how much he’s going to cry when he holds his baby for the first time

okAY waiT can we talk about THE FOXHOLE COURT (or all for the game series) for just one fuCKING SECOND?!?! if you haven’t rEad this fuckinG book you better go get yourself a copy bECAUSE holy hell. ALL OF THE CHARACTERS are so vibrant and you fall in deep gross love with all of them except maybe aaron and the development in the main character will have you fall to your knees in pridE. you will give your first born child just to make neil smile and every interaction with andrew has your stomach doing backFliPS and you literallY just want EVERYONE TO BE HAPPY. the writing style will kill you, like be prepared to just read the end in your fuCking coffin.

IF YOU HAVEN’T TAKEN ANYTHING FROM THIS JUST REMEMBER THIS ONE THING: these books will haunt you forever, in the most beautiful way. 

The characters and character designs for Inazuma Eleven will always impress me okay I know I have gone on about this many times but I am absolutely fascinated that one company managed to create so many unique characters for one series. They developed literally thousands of unique and diverse characters, both male and female, and I feel like that work goes unappreciated by most people even within the fandom.

These characters are all diverse despite all of them being mostly in the same age bracket. Like some of these guys have facial hair that I’ve seen grown men fail to grow who are taller than their own coaches and then there are kids who look like they still belong in preschool and it is absolutely fascinating. You have characters who are fat and are still as capable as their fit counterparts, and characters who are unconventionally attractive, and yet they are a part of the main or main supporting cast rather than pushed aside in favor of more attractive characters.

And then you have the racial diversity. You have characters come together from all corners of the globe. Characters who are both light and dark skinned, characters who are Latino, who are African, who are Middle Eastern, who are European, who are mixed race, hell we even have a Native American character. All of these characters are treated equally by each other in terms of race and the only type of judgement ever passed is on the individuals ability to play soccer.

But not only did they create so many diverse characters but they managed to give personalities to them that are as diverse as their appearances even if they aren’t seen beyond their descriptions in the video games. You have characters all across the moral spectrum and characters who come from all walks of life.

You have characters who have been abandoned, who have been abused, who have been orphaned, who have suffered in poverty, who have battled mental illness. You have characters who have lived lavishly, who are celebrities or down right nobility, who are surrounded by loved ones and large families. These characters are more often than not more than just simple one dimensional characters. These are characters that have depth and recieve wonderful development. Even characters who have short appearances can have complex character development.

They just have so many different types of character representation and personalities and so many of these characters are so fleshed out. For a so-called “kids series" coming from Japan I think that’s pretty damn impressive. They made this series with a wide audience in mind and I love that. I went on a bit of a rant here but I am just so passionate about this series and I will preach my love to the high heavens.

I'm SCREECHING

Okay so a few days ago I saw a tumblr post telling me to read a Firefly AU McHanzo fic called “Look Up and Wonder” so, being me, I went ahead and decided to read it, despite it being 1am and knowing absolutely nothing about Firefly.

So my point is: if you want to read one of the best pieces of writing in this fandom, I would highly recommend clicking this link right here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/7746025/chapters/17660752

The writer is really sweet and replies to all of the comments, despite getting hundreds. They’re so talented and I would buy a novel written by them any day. This book has some of the best writing that I’ve ever seen and I’m so happy to have read it.

using internet lingo or memes in your stories is probably not a good idea bc of how quickly those things lose relevance, and internet humor is like so … obscure that if the reader doesn’t get it it basically sounds like nonsense. there’s more of a gray area when it comes to voice/writing style that develops from the internet because that’s a lot more universally understandable and relevant. Starting sentences with “Okay but so…” or ironically ending statements in “ha ha” (as opposed to lmao) are things that anyone with a firm understanding of English is going to get as much as you can expect from a reader even if they don’t participate in internet talk

Noragami: Chapter 67, Pages 11-12

Can I cry now??? Because look at how Yukine remembers Yato smiling and content and omg…

He’s gonna fucking die. Like fuck fuck fuck!!! But no like flashbacks are bad really bad!

But seriously can we appreciate Yukine’s character development from chapter 1-10? Like holy shit he’s grown so much ngh!

honestly don’t even talk to me rn i’m so stoked for this i’m having heart palpitations

Absolutely! In my opinion (and I am NOT a music person, I do not claim to be BUT) the theme was constructed with that in mind! The guitar is obviously the kind of “boss battle theme” feel that songs like Live and Learn and What I’m Made Of champion, BUT

The slowdown of the piano. AFTER the guitar, AFTER the action, shows the kind of thing that good storytelling has; a pause of thought. A moment to reflect on what the fighting is FOR, how to move forwards and make things BETTER. Because this isn’t the situation beating one bad guy can fix. This is something that needs a somber moment to pick up the pieces, one by one.

💌 Bucket List

I just love the foxhole court so much because look we’ve got nine NINE main characters who are all so fundamentally different and well characterized and aren’t just the same generic friend-of-the-main-character copy pasted with a different hair color and they each have well developed backstories and personalities and we come to know them all so well over just three books that it’s easy for us to identify what kinds of movies or music or foods they would or wouldn’t like just based on what we know about them and I’m just so thankful to Nora for that because that’s not a common thing in contemporary fiction and I just love them all so much!!!!

I think the reason I love Cygate so much is because we’ve literally watched their relationship develop right from the start.

Like, yes I love Chromedome and Rewind, but they were already conjunx endura when we come to realise (ALTHOUGH IT WAS IN THE WORST POSSIBLE WAY THANKS JRO).

But cygate. oh man cygate. Cyclonus couldn’t stand Tailgate when they first met, like he literally told him to drop dead. Now he is saying he’d tear apart a planet and rip a hole in the goddamn sky to protect him.

Cyclonus loves Tailgate so fucking much.

If you really twisted my arm and made me choose an all-time favorite character, not just from FMA, but from anything, I think I would have to choose Lust.

Her development weaves beautifully with the show’s major arcs; unique, but still so connected to the most central themes of the series in spite of her limited interactions with the protagonists. Her quiet, deeply personal journey of self-discovery and internal philosophizing blows the tired trope of “What makes a human?” out of the water and breathes nuance into it. Hers is an arc of intense self-questioning usually only given to male characters, and it revolves heavily around men without ever subtracting from her own agency in the plot.

But writing is only part of the battle in a TV series, and BONES beautifully sells Lust’s shifting demeanor throughout canon through her expressions and body language alone. Pictured above is basically all of this character’s screentime. Comparatively, there isn’t a whole lot, but none of it is wasted, even though the truly head-turning segments of her arc don’t show until the series is already three-fifths over.

Episodes 1-34

Lust is effectively sold to the audience as the femme-fetale and the puppetmaster. Although there are whispers of a person who is in control of the homunculi, we are never given the impression that Lust has no control over the situation. She hides in the shadows, smirks and muses to herself from a distance, plays coy with the humans. This facade cracks only once: when Edward accuses her of being hungry for nothing but power. It is perhaps the first moment of unguarded emotion we see, and it is over as quickly as it begins, leaving use questioning, leaving us wanting more. 

But we aren’t going to get it for another 12 episodes.

Episodes 35-42

The tumult of her character’s journey. We see Lust through her own unguarded eyes and in her own environment rather than through the eyes of other characters. She’s not just showing up to stir the pot when it’s convenient, anymore. From the viewer’s perspective, she starts to remember her human life, but from an in-universe perspective, this first started happening to her two years ago. Beginning with her ruined reunion with Lujon and concluding with her first betrayal of Dante and the subsequent death of Scar, Lust is exploring. She is answering questions about herself, (Where did she come from?) only to be met with harder ones (Who is she, really?). She confronts the only remaining fragments of her past head-on, and it ends in disaster and a fall from grace with the only party she can call an ally. Played by Dante’s intentionally provoking decisions in Lior and desperate for answers and humanity, she throws away her allegiance to the other sins only to lose the spark of hope and connection to the past she has discovered for herself.

Save for Gluttony’s love and undying trust (Gluttony, whom she left behind to pursue her goals), she is now, effectively, completely alone.

Episodes 43-47

Lust breaks slowly, quietly, and with such grace that she finds meaning even in her measly death on an abandoned factory floor at the hands of a confused child. Her final weeks are like the last, no-holds-barred stand of a dwindled army. In a darkly appropriate full circle, she’s dragged from the desert back to Dante with her head hung in defeat. If there could be one added scene in the series, I would want it to be her capture between 42 and 43. There is so much potential for interaction between her and her fellow homunculi in those off screen moments, but we do get a pretty good idea of how it went down simply from body language. Pride and Sloth are quite pleased with themselves. Gluttony is terrified. 

And Lust is in a state of broken silence that never completely leaves her from this point forward.

There are genuine smiles, now, but they’re sad, weighted, and tired. She has dared to lower her walls a hair, only to have them stripped away and exploited. All she has left is a shaky alliance with the Elrics, and we know how well that goes.

Can there ever be dignity in death? It is a debatable question, but Lust comes damn close to it. She has exhausted every option, explored every feeble opportunity for hope beyond her life as an enslaved homunculus, but the cards were stacked against her from the start. She faces death with her memories of humanity and a gentle smile. It may not be a traditional blaze of glory, but it is a transcendence from all that has caused her suffering in her doomed second life. 

She’s free.
