that's not real life

my fav thing about rey and hux being siblings is on one hand you have rey as this beautiful, radiant, destructive goddess who looks good on planet Sand Hell while hux looks like someone who died behind a waffle house 

i was gonna make a post like “when im hearing that one? it is… blowing my mind.” but then i realized thats only an inside joke with my real life friends…. epic fail. 

Victor Nikiforov Appreciation Post!!!

I just want to take a moment and talk about how much I love Victor Nikiforov and how he’s just such a refreshing character. I know everyone and their dog has done a post like this already but I’ve been crying over this lovable goof for months and this had been sitting in my drafts for too long now anyway and also I’m avoiding my textbooks AND THIS SORTA TURNED INTO A CHARACTER ANALYSIS I’M SORRY.

So as far back as the PV, there were assumptions flying around that Victor would end up being an antagonist of some sort. That either he was using Yuuri for his own gain, or was just straight up evil. Laughable now, of course, but the reason those rumors were prevalent was because we see it so often. How easy was it to think that Victor was “helping” Yuuri only to further his own goals in the end? We’ve seen this common mentor-betrays-student trope before and it’s no wonder that early on fans were afraid of this even as the show progressed. And honestly? This would have made for some great drama—for Victor to turn out to not be such a nice guy and for him to eventually become someone Yuuri had to defeat in competition. However the show did not go down that route at all. It turns out that yeah, Victor is actually just a really nice guy who cares a great deal about Yuuri and the people around him. He doesn’t show up in Hasetsu with any evil ulterior motives—he just wants to get to know Yuuri and help him take his skating to the next level, and maybe find inspiration (and love) along the way.

Also how could a man with a heart-shaped smile be evil???

Pidge's Garden: Video Games
  • Pidge: *pops into Shiro's room* Hey.
  • Shiro: What's up?
  • Pidge: I was thinking about the whole video game thing and how you can't play first person shooters, and I came up with the perfect solution. *hands him her 3DS*
  • Shiro: What's this? "Animal Crossing"?
  • Pidge: Yeah. You get to be mayor of your own town and take care of a bunch of whiny animals. It's basically like being leader of Team Voltron, minus the evil alien empire trying to kill you.
  • Shiro: Huh. I'll try it out. Thanks, Pidge.
  • Three Days Later:
  • Shiro: This smug villager...
  • Pidge: Reminds you of Lance, huh?
  • Shiro: The resemblance is uncanny...

anonymous asked:

Is there ever going to be an explicit reason for Adam drowning out everyone else's emotions? Is there a particular reason that you know of?

There’s not an explicit, atypical-related reason for why Adam overwhelms Caleb’s empathy. I know a lot of people have speculated that Adam’s parents have experimented on him and he has some atypical biology or something. Since this will probably never be confirmed or denied on the podcast, I’ll do it here: Adam has not been experimented on. There’s no scientific reason for it. It’s just because he and Caleb click on some basic, subconscious level. 

The Artemis Fowl books advocate for the environment, deal with misogyny in the workplace and the need for feminism, and has some of the best character development arcs like ever over the span of eight books. Also, there’s magic and fairies with guns and time travel and a whole lot of sarcasm and really no downside to reading them
