that is can only get worse

okay, but i’m starting to think that lance’s story arc will be a big one. Because all of his insecurities are kind of piling up and adding up for season 3. 

because in season 1 he had first showed that he was homesick, and that was a big deal at the time he was kind of the only one who really expressed that they wanted to go home really badly. He almost cried.

and then this season kinda heightened that.

first when he is with the mermaids they tell him he is their saviour and he doesn’t even believe them

he questions them and looks distraught like he can’t even believe they would see him as someone who could save them by himself. 

and even here it gets worse, he clearly doesn’t see the worth that he has and it shocks him and even frightens him to meet people who think he can help and actually do things

THEN he thinks that Keith is trying to steal his lion, and is extra dramatic and even tells Keith that him and blue are happy together, and that i think was him being afraid of being replaced.

face mask and towel aside lance is almost hostile here he is clearly upset

then… he gets really upset that shiro chooses to take kieth on a mission over him. 

in this scene he is clearly upset and his expression is almost sad at first when shiro chooses keith and he fights shiro on it despite how he has always seen him as a leader who knew what was best

he clearly just wants to be appreciated, and acknowledged by shiro and the rest of the team as a strong member and even if they do he clearly doesn’t see it

AND FINALLY TO TOP IT ALL OFF

THIS LOVELY SCENE RIGHT HERE

HE LITERALLY HAD JUST BOASTED ABOUT THE WHOLE TEAM, EVEN KEITH BUT HE REALLY DOESNT HAVE MUCH TO SAY ABOUT HIMSELF

HE EVEN WONDERS IF THE TEAM WOULD KEEP HIM AROUND IF HE WASN’T USEFUL, SO CLEARLY HE HAS ISSUES ACCEPTING HIS WORTH

so while yeah lance didn’t have much of a roll in this season there is alot of hope for next season. this is clearly a buildup, because as the seasons progress it’s getting worse, and that means that this may even start to effect the team. 

when lance does get his full fledged character arch like keith did this season and shiro it will be very large and i think it will be very interesting to see how this pans out. LANCE WILL GET THE LIME LIGHT HE DESERVES AND I THINK THATS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO!!

“The Final Problem” Survival Pack

If you are reading this, you are probably screaming. So are most of us. But some hope remains! This masterpost and theory table collect the fandom’s last hopes—and they’re less crazy than you’d think.

 The main takeaway is that the episode contradicts the rest of the show and real-world events far too much for it to be just a mistake. In fact, the evidence suggests that there will be a fourth episode.

“What? That’s ridiculous!”

That’s what I thought at first, too. But things in real life don’t add up, and they can’t be explained by bad writing. At this point, a rug pull is simply the most logical explanation. And if we’re wrong, well…it can’t really get any worse, can it?

This pack has 6 parts:

  1. Issues: Everything within the episode that makes TFP not only a dumpster fire, but a (literally) unbelievable dumpster fire.
  2. Clues: Real-life weirdness such as cast quotes that don’t fit, scenes missing from filming, and strange new promos that hint at a fourth episode.
  3. Descriptions of the two main theories
  4. Theory table: Compares which theories explain which issues
  5. Resources: Links to meta that explain specific issues or the episode’s weirdness as a whole
  6. Conclusions: What it all means, and why we should hold out a little longer.

Enjoy!

  Disclaimer: Everything in this post is speculation. If you don’t want to get your hopes up, by all means skip it. However, I’d suggest at least waiting until January 29th before going full-out against Mofftiss (reasons below).


=============== Issues ================

Everything weird about that episode. With over 70 nontrivial plot holes, it’s hard to view the episode’s quality as an accident.

(The bolded phrases are descriptions, not the actual titles.)

Within the episode:

Unresolved plot holes and narrative problems:


=============== Clues ===============

Real-World Inconsistencies

Missing scenes

  • This promo
  • Filming John and Mary at a restaurant
  • Sherlock driving in the tunnel
  • “20 pages of dialogue”
  • The scene Martin wanted to do alone

Scenes that were filmed but that we’ve never seen? Quotes that make no sense with TFP as the finale? Something is up.


==============Theories================

It’s in Sherlock’s Mind

Everything in Season 4, since either the end of TAB or Mary shooting Sherlock, is in Sherlock’s mind as he is comatose. This theory requires all three episodes to be at least partly imaginary. A main variation is that John is talking to him as he is comatose, and that what John describes influences what Sherlock imagines.

For meta on variations of this theory, including EMP and John’s alibi, please see the TST Survival Pack.

It’s in John’s Mind

Everything in TFP is in John’s mind after John is shot. Variations include:

  • TST and TLD also took place in John’s mind.
  • Mary shot John, not Eurus.

This one is starting to gain more ground, particularly because it would make the whole season an adaptation of “The Three Garridebs”, leading to canon Johnlock, etc.


==============Theory Table=============

Green = Completely addresses this issue

Yellow = Addresses this issue somewhat plausibly, but not the best solution


=============Resources===============

Sherlock’s POV

John’s POV


On Issues in the Episode

Chronologically:

Meta on a single issue that specifically support one theory are labelled [John’s POV] or [Sherlock’s POV], respectively.


On the Whole Episode:


============Conclusions==============

They broke every rule of writing unless it’s a rug pull. The filming, cast and crew quotes, promotional material, and subtext within the episode make no sense unless a fourth episode reveals that it took place in John’s or Sherlock’s mind. The reputation of the whole show relies on them successfully revealing the real season finale.

So when would they reveal this fourth episode? When would it air?


“The Final Problem” is either sheer stupidity or utter genius. Either way, let’s enjoy one last conspiracy.

The game is on.



I will be updating the table and theory list regularly.

  • If you have theories, issues, or meta to add, please comment.
  • If you think a theory does address an issue that the table says it does not address (or vice versa), please comment.
  • If I described your theory inaccurately or you just want to add something, please comment.

If I tagged any of your meta above: I would love to add any other work you’ve done that I haven’t seen.  If you’d like to add something, please comment it and I would love to include it in the next update.

I know this doesn’t apply to everyone, and that’s fine, but don’t bash on people if they feel a bit weirded out or confused by Kpop when they first see it. I know for a fact that I was kind of weirded out by it (I can speak for anyone else) and it just didn’t make sense to me. So hating on someone because they don’t understand why “these guys wear eyeliner” will only make the situation worse. Realize that Kpop isn’t always something someone will instantly get in a second.

If you thought you would never live to see what our parents and grandparents went through in the 1940s, here, you can see, we are living through the worst nightmare in our lifetimes. It will only get worse from here. People will die. People you know. And soon.

America 🇺🇸

This is absolutely ridiculous. We as a country should be uniting together and helping each other get through tough times, but instead we are hurting people, starting fires, and destroying buildings. I don’t care whether you like Donald Trump or not, that is no excuse for the pain and suffering we are causing. Plus, Donald Trump hasn’t even had a chance to be president, yet people are already judging his presidential abilities. You can’t judge something that hasn’t even started yet. I’m not saying the Trump family is perfect, but we have no right to inflict disappointment and fear on the new presidential family. It’s just so disrespectful.

Also, how is hurting people, starting fires, busting windows, getting ran over, or getting arrested helping America get better? It’s only making it worse. You think America is broken? All you have to blame is yourselves. (The rioters)

I am not a Trump supporter, nor I am for Clinton. But, I know that this is RIDICULOUSLY INSANE and that we should be ashamed of ourselves. Not all of us, just the ones that are causing this mess.

If you don’t like my views, unfollow, block, rant at me, I honestly couldn’t care less. It’s not illegal to have an opinion, and I don’t care if you agree with mine or not. I just want this to stop, it’s destroying our country.

Have a nice day. x

bed-and-breakfast-engineer  asked:

for your anon: in my opinion, doubling sports bras has all the risks of binders without the rewards. binders usually can get your chest much flatter as that's what they are designed to do. doubling sports bras can work, but it seems like it works for fewer people. in either case you should never wear it to bed or for more than 8-12 hours at a max. however, if you aren't out or financially able to bind, sports bras are a possible alternative. (1/2)

the only medical reason i can think of that binders are worse is if you have back or shoulder problems or bad breathing problems. (however if your breathing is bad enough to not be able to bind i wouldn’t recommend doubling sports bras for more than an hour or so.) i bind basically every day and have done much research so i do have experience in this area. (2/2)

anonymous asked:

Got any tips for getting through tomorrow in America? I don't wanna be dramatic, but I really am upset and worried about this new government. I'm trying really hard to be positive, but I think I'm going to panic/be depressed tomorrow unfortunately.

Hey There Anon Friend, Yep, tomorrow is not going to be easy for many people.  Take a deep breath.  Stay involved and don’t shy away.  Things might get rough for awhile but we have been through worse, we can get through this.  

If you think it might trigger your depression, distract yourself tomorrow with something that you enjoy doing.

Remember many, many, many feel the same way you do.  Talk to others who are of like mind.  Find comfort in the thought that it will only be four years if that. I think it will implode long before that.

Stay well,

Have a peaceful night/day

btw my dad was hospitalized for half a year and bedridden for another seven months. he was verbally/emotionally abuse before that and physically on occasion (he’s worse than my mom tbh) and obviously, he didn’t have the ability or energy for any of that while in the hospital or anything after his stroke, so i kinda just got used to only having to deal with my mom being verbally/emotionally abusive. god i can’t wait to get out of this house

Another life was lost, it’s a shame. But when the murderer gets no charges at all it is even worse than a disgrace!

When you’re a cop you can walk around with weapons and not be shot. Meanwhile black people get shot for having a gun and not making a threatening gesture.

We don’t need cops to police our communities, because they only kill us and get no charges!

“Cheater Cheater”

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Summary: Bucky has a feeling you’re cheating on him with Sam. After a lot of brooding and thought, he decides to confront the two of you.

For @supercwm12 // Carra, sending you all the love, my sweet snow angel.
Thanks @bovaria for looking over this despite being busy. // Tesla, you bae af.

A/N: The mentioned song is Pink Martini’s “¿Dónde estás, Yolanda?”. It also served as the story’s inspiration and “Sherlock” fans will most likely recognize the tune. I can’t do angst to save my life, so this story takes on a very different direction than originally intended. It’s also kinda long… But I hope you like! -j xx

“I’m pretty sure she’s cheating on me.”

Bucky grimaces, hating how those words taste on his tongue. He refuses to look at Steve, because the gnawing feeling in his stomach will get only worse once he looks at his friend’s shocked eyes. “Whenever I ask her how her day was or what she did, she clams up and gives me some weird answer or excuse,” he continues.”

Steve rubs his jaw. "Buck, that’s not enough to assume that (Y/N)’s cheating on you.”

Bucky fishes his phone out of his leather jacket and pushes it towards Steve. “This is overbearing of me, but I asked Nat to do a little recon,” he sighs. “Whenever I look at these photos, a little voice in my head nags ‘Cheater cheater!’”

Steve uneasily scrolls through the different high-quality photos of you secretively walking out of a suite at the Avengers Tower. “Whose room is she leaving?“ he asks.

"Sam’s. It’s been going for about two weeks now.”

Steve practically spits out his coffee. “WHAT?”

Bucky feels drained as he takes his phone back. “Nat said that after (Y/N) leaves, Sam’s whistling around the tower. And you know Sam only whistles after one thing.”

Oh, every Avenger in the tower knew what the whistling meant. It was Sam Wilson’s telltale sign that he got lucky with a woman.

Steve shakes his head in disbelief. “(Y/N) and Sam? I mean, you and Sam… but… what?”

Patater AU

AU from THIS post from @kentsmashkov​ where Kent is a Kindergarten teacher, and Alexei picks up Zimbts’ kid once a week from school.

*** 

“Sir.  Um.  Sir?  Ummm…”

Kent turns, fighting the urge to swipe at the globs of sticky paint on his cheek.  But Félix is one of the most persistent children in the class, so he folds his arms and stares.  “Yes, Mr Z?”

“Um but you haff some paint.  On your face.  Juste là.”  Then he swipes at his right cheek.

To be silly, because for all that Kent isn’t really a silly person outside of this classroom full of fives and sixes, he swipes at his left cheek.  “Did I get it?”

Félix giggles and shakes his head.  “No.  There.  There,” he stresses, and points.

Kent swipes his fingers through the paint, knowing it’s only made it worse.  He can feel the sticky acrylic adhering further to his skin and it’s gross, but lord knows after teaching kids for nearly eight years, he’s been covered in almost every substance known to man.  So yeah.

Humans Are Weird

I saw a post about introverted humans in Space and thought of this scenario:

Can you imagine the aliens bringing human companions on board and all of them are boisterous and loud and spilling their pack-bonding everywhere, except one?

“Introvert,” the humans whisper, and the aliens are confused because sweet stars, is it ill? Is it deficient? Is it going to die? Worse: is it going to get them all killed?

But, no. It speaks. Quietly and only when necessary, but it performs the formal greeting of “Friend” when crossing paths with crewmates, and answers all questions. It attends all meetings and functions and engagements, but it sits off to the side, sometimes reading, sometimes participating, sometimes observing. This observing causes some alarm among the aliens because is it hunting? Are they safe?

It even hides in the ventilation shafts - “For peace and quiet,” it says, when asked.

Queries are posed to the other humans: “What is “introvert”? Is it remedial? Will it infect us?“

“No,” the humans respond. “It’s normal. It’s just a trait some humans have. You’re perfectly safe.”

So the aliens continue on but it’s no unknown fact that everyone has a set of eyes on the introvert.

Pirates aren’t uncommon in these nebulae. They take anything of value: momentos, tech, food, and crew. Humans are a popular trade item on black markets - as companions, as toys, as food - and are literally worth their weight in credits.

The crew is subdued quickly, and the roster produced. The aliens fear for their humans, all eleven of them. But wait. Where’s the introvert?

It’s missing, and the pirate captain sends out five of his biggest to recover it.

The five don’t even make it to the cargo bay doors before the lights shut off. Bad news for the pirates who have bio-luminescent markings on their hides, particularly around their bare heads.

The glare of a fired photon pistol is their only warning. The number of glares matches the number of pirates, no more, no less. And when the lights come back up, there’s the introvert, sliding out of the ventilation shaft to stand in a lake of bio-luminescent blood with a supernova burning in its eyes.

It smiles at them and murmurs, “Friends” in its usual quiet tone as it cuts the captain free.

There is nothing but stunned awe as each crewmate greets in reply, “Friend.”

No, there truly is nothing wrong with their introverted human whose designation is Danielle, and even if there were, no one would change it. They very much like Danielle the way she is.

iamconstantine  asked:

I always get so confused when people accuse the Overwatch/Steven Universe creators to be racist/LGBTphobic or anything along those lines. Like, the OW creators said that they would include LGBT characters so how is one straight ship homophobic to Pharmercy, and why would they make so many POC characters and then whitewash them? It's written by a diverse cast and has diverse characters, but they're so quick to jump on a character for being "stereotypical" or "racist"

Because tumblr users don’t actually care about representation.

They care about being catered to, and they only care about social justice issues as a means to manipulate people into giving them what they want. And then they move the goalposts and complain when they actually GET what they want because if someone actually fixes the problems they complain about, then that means they can’t complain anymore and they stop getting attention.

And when people get sick of them acting like idiots, they act even worse and will twist any possible “problematic material” (or failing that will just flat out LIE) to make slander you and harass you, never once thinking or admitting that THEY might be the ones with the fucking problem with their absolutely insane amounts of self-entitlement. 

And then they have the nerve to genuinely believe that the reason everyone fucking despises them is because of bigotry and has nothing to do with the fact they’re all spoiled egomaniacs throwing tantrums when they won’t get their way.

Unpopular opinion

Yurio’s character is overrated. I can’t stand him anymore. His rudeness is over the top. He never misses a chance to call Yuuri a pig or make fun of him/insult him. I don’t want him to win the GPF, if someone deserves it, it’s Yuuri. I feel like everything is so easy for Yurio. He’s the Junior medalist, won two silver medals and now he places first in the SP. That won’t help with his ego, it will only make things worse for him. He needs to fall to get back up. He’s still very young , he has plenty of time to win other gold medals. For me the most cliche part of YOI is Yurio himself. You can find him in almost every damn anime. All the other characters feel like actual people but he’s a cardboard cut out tsundere. He’s a character to appeal to the younger audience. He’s pretty, hardworking, supports his family financially, he’s used as a comical relief, loud, rude obnoxious. All these traits are overused. From all the characters Yuuri is the most realistic of them all. I can relate to him on so many levels. I seriously highly doubt that anywhere in the world someone like Yurio even exists. I hope HE DOESN’T WINS THE GOLDEN MEDAL OR I’ll SCREAM FOR MONTHS

Christmas Needs to be Stopped

It’s November 4th.  We haven’t had the election yet.  We haven’t had Thanksgiving yet.  We haven’t had Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or December 1st yet.

Why the fuck is it already Christmas?

As has been pointed out so many other times on this site by many, many Jewish and other non-Christian bloggers, but Christmas has become a bit of a problem.

So think of this post as an intervention.

Historically, we get killed on Christmas.  The only day of the year worse has been Easter.  Now, admittedly, this is less common, though we still notice upticks in antisemitic violence at these two times of year.

We can’t do ANYTHING in the society we live in without being bombarded by a religious holiday and, worst of all, if we complain about it, suddenly WE’RE the badguys.  Try telling a “It’s not Happy Holidays, it’s Merry Christmas” person “Oh, but I’m Jewish, I don’t celebrate Christmas” and you will have a PROBLEM.  At best, they just act like an asshole to you, but I’ve seen it turn into proselytization or the Christian nearly assaulting the Jew.

Just try, for a moment, Christians, to imagine if you lived in a society where for a full sixth of the year, every single thing revolves around a holiday that you don’t celebrate, but which historically has included roaming bands of celebrants deciding that it’s time for you to die.

Wouldn’t you be a bit sour on it, too?

Yuri On Ice Ageswap AU

In which Yuuri is a twenty-seven-year-old figure skater who has made it to the Grand Prix Final almost every year since he started but has never managed to medal because his nerves always betray him in the end. Victor at 23 years old has been considered the top Russian skater for a while now, but he’s idolized Yuuri Katsuki ever since he was a kid.

In the most recent Grand Prix Final, Yuuri place lasts after he falls apart over his dog’s death, and Victor takes gold yet again but is disheartened by his idol’s failure to the point where he has to stop and second-guess his own passion for skating, which leads to a bit of a creative slump. This only gets worse when he hears rumors that Yuuri is retiring after this year.

Yuuri’s upset about all this, but he can’t help but be a little inspired by this younger skater’s impressive free program, so he learns it while working through his depression and just like in canon, it winds up on the internet and goes viral.

Victor, of course, sees the video and immediately grabs his dog and hops on a plane to Japan, where he shows up at the Katsukis’ inn and blurts out “PLEASE COACH ME FOR THE NEXT GRAND PRIX FINAL” the second he sees Yuuri.

Bonus: Yurio is a former top skater who has aged out of competitive skating and is Fucking Pissed because he wanted to coach Victor, and now that Victor’s run off to Japan, that leaves him alone to contend with grouchy junior skater Yakov and melodramatic Emo Teen Georgi who’s making his senior debut.

Bonus 2: Yuuri’s beloved dog was this cute shiba named Katsudon and at one point, early in his career and in the throes of fanboy glee, Victor adopted a shiba puppy and named it Yuuri.
