So I am a sucker for trauma related headcanons. Really, those interpretations that go deep into the characters psyche, how some events affected their personality and self image, coping mechanisms, anything of the sort. If you feel comfortable to share yours or even just one about Hal, please do!! It will be amazing to hear. Thank you :)

oh omg thank u so much ;_>; yes i have a ton of thoughts abt this, i spent like all day yesterday trying to gather them to say smthing cohesive here lol., thank u thank u tho this is so nice ., 

[big Abuse CW here, nothing like graphic descriptions but a lot of talking abt the aftereffects lol, b wary]

so a big thing tht i like to play with when characterizing, any of the GLs, is kind of… finding ways to give them insecurities that uh? click with how the ring works? i guess i end up tying the whole nature of getting superpowers for willpower and overcoming fear to mental battles and internal struggles., thats especially how i tend to see hal + his issues. he has no normal coping mechanisms lol.

i guess how i see it mostly is that, hal is the type of person to cope w stuff in the past by just avoiding any type of introspection whatsoever. he doesnt like to acknowledge that anything was ever weirdly unbalanced between himself and sinestro, or that sinestro was ever actively manipulative to him. that just opens up this whole can of worms, like that something was actually wrong, and that’s just a whole mess that hal would rather not deal with really! it’s fine, he’s dealing with it fine. he’s going to forget about it and move on. like he always does. he’s fine.

he gets prickly even at the notion that any of what went down in that whole Debacle would have affected him in the longterm. but…. also, when he thinks about everything sinestro knows about him…. and the fact that sinestro thinks about him regularly., he just gets this cold feeling in his stomach. and he doesnt know why? 

he just kind of barrels forward bc even tho its hard, in a way its a lot easier than looking back. hal doesnt want to have to process anything thats happened to him. he doesnt want to think of himself as th kind of person who’s been hurt on that kind of a personal level. 

i think this got kind of abstract??? i’ll maybe elaborate in further posts; ive got a lot more specifically on how this and any further interactions w sinestro fuck with his sense of self a lot.,, but this is already charging into “extreme alternate character interpretation” territory lol., thank u so much anon, i hope ths is ok ;_>;

as it’s remus john lupin’s 57th birthday, let’s have a rundown of his wonderful life:

  • at 5, he was a werewolf wanting to be a boy
  • at 11, he learnt that he would have a new prison. he let himself be shackled by his screams. they say that that house was the most haunted in britain. what about his human heart?
  • at 12, they knew. it relieved some of the many weights slung around his soul so he could breathe
  • at 21, he lost the people who made him “happier than he had ever been in his life”.
  • was it at 21? or had he already lost them in the bitter twist of war that turned brothers into spies - but in this tale, no wolves were in sheep clothing
  • or perhaps he had known that they were slipping away? he watched and let them go because he hadn’t been enough anyway
  • at 33, the laughter, the smiles, the warm days were but two short words: “we’ve met”. what did he regret more? having received their love or being left behind to pick up the pieces of his soul?
  • at 36, there is nothing you can do harry. there is nothing there is nothing and everything I touch turns to ash to grime to dust
  • at 38, he would do his best to make the world a better place for teddy to live in. he was tired, so tired.
  • he wanted to be a boy again

I genuinely feel so bad for Julian. 

He literally doesn’t have any friends in Central City from what has been shown to us. He was always at the station before Caitlin asked him to join Team Flash. Once he joined the team, he was always either at the station or at S.T.A.R. Labs. Even in tonight’s episode (3x15), Julian goes straight from the airport to S.T.A.R. Labs. I don’t know about you but after going on any flight (especially one from Europe to America??) there’s nothing more I want to do than to go home. 

 Along with that, back in episode 3x05 (I’m pretty sure this happened in ‘Monster’ at least, feel free to correct me if I’m wrong), he claimed that he had a “girlfriend” but whatever happened to her? I feel like he said that to not only get Barry off his back, but to also make it so that his excuse made him seem less hermit-like. Maybe if he made up this fake person, then maybe he wouldn’t seem so lonely.

I think that the reason Julian latched onto Caitlin so much at this point in the season was because she was the only one to really reach out to him in an effort to become friends with him. Regardless of what Cisco and Caitlin said in the season premiere, that Julian was a “great guy”, nobody had really bothered to reach out to befriend Julian. So when Caitlin asked him to join Team Flash, not only was it an opportunity to have access to the greatest scientific technology, to make a difference in Central City, or to better understand his profession as a meta-human expert, but it was also an opportunity to be part of something. An opportunity to be part of a team.

So, when it was revealed in tonight’s episode that one of his only friends, if not his best friend, had only invited him onto the team for his profession, not for who he truly was, it must’ve stung deep. To think that someone you considered to be a good friend lie to you to get what they want is just awful.

On another tangent, Barry continued to use Julian as a “human Ouija”. Julian has stated time and time again how awful it felt to be vulnerable to Savitar’s control and how he was not comfortable with it, but Barry continued to pressure him into it multiple times during the episode. 

I think that Julian was really starting to consider Team Flash to be good friends of his, and in just one episode, I think that they really tore that away from him. And for that, I feel pretty bad for the guy.

Why you should buy: Nova 2016-2017

The Nova Corps, if you don’t know, were basically the intergalactic police force of old. Powered by their technologically advanced helmets and armor, the Corps are now nonexistent except for two Novas of Earth: Richard Rider and Sam Alexander. Marvel’s 2016 series Nova, by Jeff Loveness and Ramon Perez, is essentially a buddy cop series in space. Comedy, adventure, drama, family, friendship, romance, and more, Nova has something for everyone, and is (for me) one of the best ongoing comics hitting the shelves.

This comic really compliments Marvel’s more comedic yet heartwarming tone that they’re implementing in their cosmic/space adventure genre. If you like Guardians of the Galaxy in any form, Nova is definitely for you! Some other reasons to read Nova: 

1. Captivating Characters and POC lead

Richard Rider was the original Nova, who died a hero by sacrificing his life for the galaxy, but mysteriously returned to life. Sam Alexander is a mixed Mexican teenager from Arizona who inherited his Nova helmet from his missing father, who was a part of the Nova Corps. While Sam’s character is more focussed in growing up, high school, and family, Richard’s is completely different, tackling issues of life, the difficulties of moving on, and trauma. The contrast between the Novas of new and old also add to why the comic is so diverse when it comes to genres, but instead of feeling convoluted, the narratives compliment each other extremely well. The bond that builds between Richard and Sam create a really interesting and fun dynamic that’s less of a typical mentor/mentee relationship then something much more complex and personal. They both learn from each other and grow through their friendship, which makes their character development intriguing and appealing.

The artist and co-writer, Ramon Perez, is also Latino, and he’s made it clear how much he loves Sam (lol), and is keen on depicting him and his family very visibly Not White. So you’re also supporting creators of color by buying this series! 

(There’s also a talking Russian astronaut telepath dog, Cosmo, who’s a friend of the Novas and a very cute and hilarious addition to the cast) 

2. Gorgeous Art/Colors

Ramon Perez’s art style is extremely dynamic and beautiful, and Ian Herring’s bright color palette full of pinks, purples, and blues create a visually stunning comic. Fight scenes are thrilling, and alien and enemy designs are completely lovely. 

My favorite parts of the comic art-wise is of Richard and the demons that torment and infect him (no spoilers…) These depictions are mind-blowingly gorgeous and haunting. Not much else to say other then to take a look for yourself! 

3. Its Pretty Fucking Funny/Endearing 

Jeff Loveness is a Emmy and WGA nominated comedic writer for Jimmy Kimmel, The Onion, and more. His extremely well-crafted dialogue is full of humor and fun, and the comedy makes the characters even more charming. He also enjoys poking fun at the ridiculousness of the comic world: 

(This scene has like 20,000 notes so why did none of ya’ll actually buy the comic)

I also love how the humor in Sam’s scenes make him a very endearing kid you really want to root for. Sam’s self-doubt and typical teenage insecurity is very relatable and always depicted in the best ways: 

Unfortunately, despite all the good reviews and positive fan feedback, this comic is getting cancelled after 7 issues, which is a huge mistake on Marvel’s part. Nova really feels like its just starting on something big, and it was heartbreaking for me to hear about its cancellationI really wish I wrote this sooner (Loveness and Perez were so bummed out about it, I feel like I personally failed them) but I’ll still do anything to promote this comic as much as possible, the creators deserve that much. Its a very charming and entertaining series, and I love this hidden gem with all my heart! I hope this convinced you to read Nova!

Definitely check out if you like: Starlord, Guardians of the Galaxy, Power-Man and Iron Fist, Ms. Marvel, Green Lanterns, and Blue Beetle. Tbh i’d even say space dramas like Voltron and Cowboy Bebop have a similar vibe.

If you enjoy the comic, please support these creators and sales by buying the comic instead of torrenting! Check out your nearest comic book store, or buy digital issues on Marvel.com or Comixology.com for #1-5! 

anonymous asked:

can you tell me about the bts ships? not just otp's, brotps too!

YESSsssSSS I CAN TALK ABOUT BTS SHIPS ALL DAY FAM

but ill only talk about the ones im familiar with:

1. YOONMIN (yoongi/jimin):

ok holy shit where the FUCK do i start with yoonmin. they’ve been my bts otp since day 1 so i have a LOT TO FUCKING SAY LOL 

first off, refer to this post as to why i started shipping them, they have a LOT of cute fucking moments predebut and its been a painfully beautiful journey ever since 2013

before we jump in we need to talk about how YOONGI WROTE A SONG FOR JIMIN BECAUSE HE ADMIRES HOW HARDWORKING JIMIN IS. IF THAT AINT REAL THEN GET TF OUT OF MY FACE LMAo like where dat song @ tho yoongs

ok i need to chill, but theres more:

like jimin being yoongi’s #1 cheerleader at ISAC lmao look at him cheer his name in front of all the fans and other idols with ZERO shame, and then there’s yoongi pretending like he doesnt hear him #typical

^ TYPICAL YOONGI. this ship is very love-hate. mostly false pretense of hate on yoongi’s end and WAAAY TOO MUCH SHAMELESS LOVIN on jimin’s end BUT we all know yoongi’s putting up a front. like there’s actually so many subtle moments where he reveals how much he cares for jimin and they kill me every time, like this one:

but then right back to pretending like he dont give a fuck lmfao:

ALSO THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST LEGENDARY YOONMIN MOMENTS, THE “YOU KNOW. I KNOW.” MOMENT (explanation here) :

this whole v app broadcast was a yoonmin fest and it was a blessing. jimin got him a sweater for yoongis birthday and they basically confessed on live broadcast that they’re soulmates. ugh im so sensitive about this moment

in summary:

  • yoonmin are polar opposites and that heart-pulling cold/warm dynamic they have is super shippable, thus the reason why they’re one of the most popular ships in this fandom
  •  yoongi puts on a cold exterior and doesn’t really show his emotions. jimin on the other hand is super openly loving towards others, especially yoongi, and its really fucking cute how yoongi reciprocates sometimes
  • the two really do care about each other a lot though and it’s really heart warming to see. also yoongi had jimin rap on his Tony Montana stage and it was everything

there’s tons more but for the sake of room lets move on

The first time Auston Matthews met Mike Babcock, it was in the Detroit Red Wings’ coaches office at Joe Louis Arena.


Matthews was 17, playing for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program about 45 minutes west in Ann Arbor. His coach was Don Granato, brother of Tony Granato, assistant to Babcock in Detroit.


The morning of a Red Wings game, Matthews and teammate Matthew Tkachuk came with Don Granato to watch practice and preview life in the NHL. Babcock had seen them play against the University of Michigan, and he told Matthews, “You’re a good player, but you can’t let your talent make up for your work ethic.”


“It’s something that I’ve always remembered,” Matthews said.


-


Matthews grew up in Scottsdale, Ariz., and didn’t realize how good he was until he tried out for the NTDP and stood out against the best players of his age group in the United States. It gave him top coaching, top teammates, top competition and experiences like meeting Babcock.


It also gave a glimpse of his personality: humble but confident, calm but competitive, unaffected and unafraid, the kind of person who could play pro hockey in Switzerland at 18, play in the World Cup of Hockey 2016 before his NHL debut and star in Toronto without acting much like a star.


“I really enjoyed my time there, thought I learned a lot, really progressed as a player, as a person,” Matthews said. “Some of my closest friends kind of come from those two years.”


Matthews lived in a suburban subdivision with his billet family: Brian and Heidi Daniels, their sons Cole and Camden, and teammate Luke Opilka. He kept his room clean, brought down his own laundry, made his own breakfast and lunch. One day, the family brought home some mulch. He grabbed a shovel and helped spread it out.


-


“I’ve never met a more competitive kid,” said Camden Daniels, now 15. “If he lost, you weren’t going to hear the end of it for a couple days.”


But you wouldn’t hear much about ice hockey.


“Whenever we went out to dinner or anything and some of my friends would be with him … Everyone knew how good he was, and he would just play it off like it was nothing basically,” Camden Daniels said. “You would have never thought he was doing what he was doing.

RoadRat snippet focusing on stuffing and tummy praise
____

Roadhog’s hand trailed gently over Junkrat’s belly. The smaller man’s stomach was full and warm, and this was the healthiest Roadhog had seen Junkrat look. Hog leaned over and placed a gentle kiss on Rat’s tummy, then another.

Rat hummed content and full, definitely a bit too full, but this was a luxury they now could afford with all the stolen money they’d collected, so he relished in the feeling. Hog’s soft kisses helped him feel less guilty about eating extra food, and all the praise made him feel warm and safe. Junkrat sighed and reclined further into the mattress of the cozy hotel.

Roadhog’s heart filled with pride as he ran his large hands over Junkrat’s sides. He placed a few more kisses around Rat’s belly and softly sucked a hickey against his hip, earning a breathy gasp from Rat. He smiled against the soft flesh and snorted a nibble causing Rat to giggle and push his face away.

Roadhog looked into their bag of takeout and saw one more steamed bun. He held it up to Junkrat’s mouth, silently asking him to eat another.

“’M so full a'ready, mate, dunno if I can eat more.”

“It’s the last one.”

Junkrat exhaled and took a bite. He was full, but he knew Hoggy would treat him with more heated touches later for finishing the meal. He slowly ate the last one and enjoyed the feeling of Hog’s hands gently rubbing his full tummy, and the soft whispered praises filling his chest with warm fuzzy feelings.
