RWBY World of Remnant 4: Aura

Honestly, there’s not much to talk about with this one. Nothing we didn’t already know…

Aura is a lifeforce that flows through all humans, it shields from damage, it can be manifested as Semblances unique to each person… Yep. That’s all there is to this one.

So I guess we should talk about Volume 2! Boy, what a colossal step up in quality it was. And so deserved! It just looks marvelous now. Much higher fidelity and detail everywhere. And the fights! The fights were somehow even better than in Volume 1. Just some stellar animation everywhere.

The old characters were fleshed out, new characters were introduced, and so many more mysteries were added to the fold.

Indeed… We’re at the half-way point of the series, and I have no complaints, other than the motives of the main villains being very unclear and confusing. I can’t wait to see more… Especially if it means a TOURNAMENT ARC!

See you with Volume 3 tomorrow, folks!

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: Season 2 has already shown us character development from our main cast. Max, Nikki and Neil all seem to have slightly more respect for David and went to him immediately when Daniel started brainwashing kids. Additionally, David actually attempted to stand up for both himself and his camp. It's like the Season 1 finale actually happened, which is refreshing since so many shows still rely on the "everything resets to the status quo" trope. However, there are still so many mysteries. What camp was Max signed up for? What was david's home life like? What is MAX'S home life like? Why does Space Kid always wear his astronaut costume? Will the squirrel rebellion subplot pay off? Will Daniel return? Will Gwen do something useful with her degrees? I need answers.

anonymous asked:

1) hey! ive been thinking. fujisaki's friends at one point mention that he talks to himself and he sometimes, falls asleep. he's most likely talking to hiiro or ayakashi. but about the sleeping part. its probably his soul slipping out like hiyoris (either on purpose or unintentionally) now, my point is: you know, yato didnt recognize him when he passed him on the streets while he was with yukine, but before that, they interacted during the yomi arc, didnt they? he also didnt look like fujisaki

2) so was he interacting with yato while possessing someone else, or was it his soul? like, his real appearance and everything? i think he was already possessing fujisaki then so it could really be that at that time it was just his soul. what do you think? sorry for my bad english and how it makes no sense

Hi! 

Yep. I believe Fujisaki has been possessed by Father ever since he appeared in the story, which was Chapter 24. At the time, Yato didn’t recognize him because he hadn’t seen him in this form yet.

The next time Yato sees Fujisaki after the Yomi arc is when he invites him over to talk. This is when it’s confirmed that Father has been using Fujisaki’s body for a long while, as he mentions his/Fujisaki’s father, and how he got permission to take the exam to transfer schools just to meet Hiyori.

I think it’s safe to say this is the first time Yato saw his new appearance: Fujisaki asked him if he liked his new image, and Yato replied that he didn’t care since he looks different everytime he sees him. He also only realized it was him in the street because he called him “Yaboku”. 

So what happened during the Yomi mission? Well, I don’t believe they interacted at all. I don’t think Father was possessing someone else because it doesn’t seem like the process is that easy. Father was already in Fujisaki’s body way before he even entered the story, so it’s quite likely that Fujisaki is a very unique vessel. Both Father and Mizuchi are also always very careful that he doesn’t get hurt, implying Fujisaki is indeed quite special. I also don’t think Father has a “true” spirit-like form because nothing like it has ever been implied (or at least it’s not a form that he can use easily). I also don’t see why he would need to be in a non-human form at that point either. In the anime, he was also shown in a human form and wearing his monk robes (which I guess was approved by Adachitoka):

So why didn’t Yato see his face? Who knows. Yato and Father didn’t seem to communicate during the Yomi mission. As far as we know, they only communicated through Hiiro. It’s quite likely that Yato was afraid to look at him. Or maybe he just didn’t want to look at him because acknowledging his presence would be like admitting that he was back to square 1 despite having Yukine and Hiyori in his life.

A list of gay serial killer recs for people going through Hannibal withdrawal

MY MOMENT HAS COME, at last I can unleash my gay serial killer fandom upon the world without it being (overly) creepy.

I should not have to tell you that a) none of these are Hannibal, because nothing is Hannibal, but b) Hannibal’s narrative is built on several of these narratives and their tropes of pairing the serial killer with a conflicted doppelganger who bonds with him in some way.

  • Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train. The single #1 best example of this, and the one that comes closest to giving us Murder Husbands. Based on a novella by the one and only Patricia Highsmith. This film is one of my most favorite films ever and you should watch it a million times and glory in all Hitch’s parallelism and use of shadows and doubles to signify the way Guy and Bruno are soulmates in love. ALSO I’ve always thought Will bore a striking resemblance to Farley Granger in this film.
  • Cure. This is the Japanese film  by Kurosawa (the director of Kairo/Pulse). This film is gripping, subtextual, implicit, and IMO the most satisfying example of the films on this list. WATCH THIS FILM IT IS SO GOOD. (Also it’s on Hulu.) 
  • The Talented Mr. Ripley, based on another novel by Patricia Highsmith, who is probably reading the Hannigram tag on Tumblr from heaven and drinking heavily while weeping
  • Death Note. I would recommend watching the first season of the anime (you can stop after that) bc the anime knows which side its bread is buttered on, and that side is Light x L. If you read the (gorgeous) manga, you’ll know when to stop. (This is blasphemy to some DN fans who love the characters we meet after the Yoruba arc but I am not one of them and L x Light is all that sustained me. UNTIL NOW.) 
  • Cruising. Oh, friends, let me tell you about Cruising. It is directed by William Friedkin, he of The Exorcist and The French Connection, and it is a story about Al Pacino going undercover as a detective in the gay scene community of early 80s New York, where he visits bathhouses, participates in the hanky code, practices BDSM, and does poppers at gay clubs, ALL IN PURSUIT of catching a serial killer. It is an incredibly fascinating film that caused major boycotts and accusations of homophobia when it was released (in i think 1983?) and it was basically banned for over a decade as a result, at which point people kind of went “oh wow this is actually a great film.” It’s simultaneously a surprisingly sympathetic look at the gay community, filmed just before the AIDS epidemic and the end of bathhouse culture, and an incredibly homophobic one. OR IS IT? Al Pacino might be in the closet? He might be something else altogether? There are so many questions and mysteries and it’s such a good film and I love it. ALSO PACINO AS AN UNDERCOVER GAY BDSM PRACTITONER IN A WIFE BEATER HIGH ON POPPERS:
  • Rope. This is the only film on this list fandom ever seems to know/care about which I’ve always thought is a shame, because IMO it’s one of Hitchcock’s weakest films. But it does feature Farley Granger again, and it is based on the real story of gay serial killers Leopold and Loeb, so it’s dripping with a ton of rather wry subtext. But it would be a shame if you only watched Rope and not Strangers on a Train. Basically, if you’re looking for a vibe of ‘innocent man ensnared by a killer who fascinates him in ways he can’t seem to say no to, who’s gradually tempted to give into the bond between them,’ then you want Strangers on a Train or Cure. If you want ‘two potential sociopaths who aren’t sure whether they love or hate one another,’ then you want Rope or Talented Mr. Ripley. :)
  • The Watcher. This movie is hilarious because it is pretty clearly written by someone who wanted to write the most homoerotic movie ever written, but then it was given to actors who were clearly like UM WTF IS THIS, haha, so you have Keanu Reeves (as the serial killer) breathily telling James Spader he wants them to be together and James Spader going through the movie making horrified faces of revulsion, so the whole thing comes off as purely homophobic in this way that is KIND OF A HILARIOUS MUST-WACH??? Look YMMV vary but knowing where we come from only makes us appreciate Hannibal more. 
  • Poppy Z. Brite. You probably already know about Poppy Z Brite, but if you don’t, her entire writing career is basically a trajectory heading towards Exquisite Corpse, which is is a novel about two cannibalistic necro-loving gay serial killers in love, natch. Her novel Lost Souls, written when she was 19 and in the heyday of every teen’s vampire-loving goth fever dream, features two dudes who have an intensely homoerotic friendship and two more dudes who are incestuous gay vampires, so, you know, maybe take a look at that. (There’s also a connection with a later novel, Drawing Blood, which features explicitly queer characters and a bunch of other murdery supernatural-ish stuff.)  Last night kirstenthompson said to me Hannibal was the closest thing we could get to Bryan Fuller adapting Poppy Z Brite and I’m inclined to agree, haha.

Moodboard: Higurashi no naku koro ni「 ひぐらしのなく頃に 」

Yes… It was indeed very simple, and right in front of them the entire time: the key to so many things, to simply trust and forgive. Trusting and forgiving was all they needed to defeat their inner demons… and conquer their suspicions. However, trusting and forgiving can’t solve everything, especially in Hinamizawa, where so many mysteries remain to be solved.

Part (2/2)
END
Will @coulsart ever find her true love again? How will she ever escape the fridge and Freddy’s judgemental glare? Where has her body gone?
So many mysteries, and so little time and energy to solve them all, and especially so for making anymore of this. Holy shit, I need me a pick-me-up. This took several hours too long for its outcome, and I’m unhappy with it.

@basilbees​ was kind enough to guide me towards this prompt about criminal!naruto and cop!hinata, which I thought was super fun. 💛

Summary:

Naruto had long since learned how to gauge a predator’s intent before the threat moved from eventual to emergent. He’d learned it the hard way as a young boy, with six facial scars to show for it.

It had taken him far too long to realize it, but now he was up to speed.

Hinata was a predator.

History of Our Worlds-Thor Odinson x Reader (One Shot)

(A/N: I decided to try out my first one shot. I’m so used to writing long stories though, I’m not sure how this will turn out. Remember you can request anything you would like, just message me.)

Summary: (Y/N) loves her history, she finds it fascinating that almost everything throughout time had been recorded. However she also loves what people believed in such as gods, so when she meets one in real life she can’t help but fangirl a little.

Characters: Thor Odinson x Reader, Wanda Maximoff x Reader (platonic)

Meanings: (Y/N)=Your name
(Y/L/N)= Your last name

Warnings: Just fluffyness

“Watching another documentary (Y/N)? What’s it about this time?” Wanda’s voice rang through the living room.

I paused the tv show, looking up at her from the sofa.“Just about Greek Mythology. And I don’t watch that many, do I?”

“Every time I walk in here you’re watching something to do with history.” she sat down next to me.

“I can’t help it. It’s just so interesting! How has humanity been able to record so much history down but yet there’s still so many mysteries out there?”

She chuckled before looking towards the tv. I resumed the programme as we sat in silence. The narrator continued to explain the many Greek gods that were worshipped and what they symbolised. I was surprised that Wanda stayed for so long, maybe she was actually interested. As the show neared the end, a fellow Avenger entered the room. In my peripheral vision I spotted Thor walk in.

“Lady Maximoff, Lady (Y/L/N), may I join you?” his deep voice boomed throughout the room.

“Of course you can.” I smiled as he settled into the single armchair.

Thor Odinson, the myth, the legend, the demi-god. He was a lovely man, despite his touch exterior he was so sweet and clueless about our world. He was always wanting to learn about Earth though it didn’t always go so well. One time I was trying to show him how the toaster worked; he got too confident and slammed the lever down, breaking it. We didn’t have toast for a week. For some reason Thor always came to me when wanting to learn more. Perhaps it was because I too was always studying Earth’s past. But why not go to someone like Tony about technology? I was like Steve when it came to those things, it was as if I was from the 1940s too.

I had refrained myself from bombarding him with questions about Asgard. Norse mythology was another fascination of mine. And the fact that he was proof that it was real made me more excited to investigate further. But I didn’t want him to think I was a weirdo, obsessing over him. We were good friends, I didn’t want to scare him away.


The fact that he was drop dead gorgeous too was not at all intimidating.


“These people, why did they worship such gods?” Thor suddenly asked.“There are just too many.”

“It’s just what people believed in. It helped them with their lives. If you think there’s too many Greek ones, the Romans had a god for cupboards called Penates.” I briefly explained.

“Really?” Wanda raised an eyebrow.

I nodded.

“How do you retain all of this information Lady (Y/L/N)? Your knowledge must be very expanded.”

How was I blushing over that sentence?

“I-I don’t know. It j-just stays there I guess.” I stuttered like a hopeless fool.

Wanda tried to suppress her giggles. I glared at her as the credits rolled up. She smiled sweetly at me before leaving the room. I sighed, stopping the programme and almost deleting the recording when Thor cried out.

“No! Please Lady (Y/L/N), do not remove the entertainment of the gods, I would very much like to watch it myself from the beginning.”

“Oh, sorry.”

“Tis alright.”

It made my heart swell that he wanted to so desperately watch the programme. He was too much for me. How was it that I could spend so much time with him yet always become flustered at random times? Thor stood from his seat and instead next to me.

“Lady (Y/L/N), if it would not be too much trouble, may I ask you to teach me how to work this magic box? Brother Steven tried to show me yesterday but he too was not all knowing.”

My eyes furrowed together as he spoke.

He pointed to the tv.“What do you midgardians call it? A….a television?”

“Yeah, that’s right. Oh, um, I’m not too good with tehnology myself but I’ll try to explain it.”

We spent the next half hour exploring the tv and how it worked. Although it was tedious for me (seeing as I clearly knew how to use one) I watched Thor intensely as he struggled to control the remote with his huge hands. He was so handsome. How had he not gotten married yet? Did they have old fashioned weddings on Asgard where it was arranged? Did he have someone special already? I bet their celebrations are beautiful.

“Thor?” his name escaped my lips before I could stop myself.

His blue eyes looked into mine.“Yes Lady (Y/L/N)?”

“Could you maybe…it doesn’t matter, I don’t want to bother you.”

“Please tell me.” He set down the remote as his full attention turned to me.

I started to ramble as my nerves grew.“Um..I was just wondering if you could tell me about Asgard? You wouldn’t have to go into much detail if you didn’t want to. I’ve read books and watched shows about it, but I’m sure it would be better coming from someone who lives there. It just sounds like a wonderful place.”

He sighed.“And it is. But alas, I cannot tell you about it.”

My face fell into a sad frown.“Oh, sorry I asked. Here I’ll show you how to record a show-”

His hand grabbed mine.“I cannot tell you about my home now, it must be over dinner.”

“D-dinner?”

“Yes, that is the condition.” His cheeky grin appeared.

I giggled, not believing that he was asking me out. It was so smooth as well. As my mind tried to process it, I could see Thor waiting for an answer.

“Then how could I say no?”


(A/N: So how was it? Thought I would start with a Marvel one, it’s one of my favourite things to write about. Let me know if you want more and remember you can request something.)

I think my mind has simply refused to let anything come to the surface
It has taught itself to be still
Placid like a resting volcano
Something so many think is so mysterious
So wondrous to those who couldn’t contemplate the dangers of so much involuntary inactivity
In my lifetime my world has erupted around me in such an instant & in so many words yet so little
How many lives did I take with me in the magnitude of the things I have done
How many people are still wondering about traumatized of the life that I once was
But I can only refer to what I am now
I am cursed to always know what is feels like for the inside of me to come tumbling out & destroy everything that has built up around me
But that isn’t the worst of it
I can’t feel the things that I have done
I can’t feel the odd circumstances that I have held
I can’t feel the things that I have lost
& I can’t feel the thing that I am
My mind knows I can not feel because I can not deal until I am ready to explode
& now I know how it feels
To be as beautiful & as dangerous as a volcano
—  The Immensity of Inactivity

Gravity Falls: The Movie by edogg8181804 (bing.com)
Come on, Disney, you finally got a SVTFOE movie, why don’t we have a two hour epilogue movie for what happened next summer? There’s still so many more mysteries left unsolved! 📕🐷

WELL! FINALLY! We have a name for our protagonist. Ruby Rose! Which immediately makes me think of the name on the grave in her trailer, Summer Rose. Mother? A second sister? Entirely non-canon? Who knows!

Also, we have this fellow in black and green who just brought Ruby a plate of cookies and a mug of what is likely hot chocolate.

That’s… awfully kind.

Most mysteriously, the man made a point to wonder about Ruby’s silver eyes… Looks like I was mistaken earlier. Yang definitely had violet eyes, I think. Not silver. And whatever Silver eyes means, it must be important somehow.

So many mysteries!
