that's one of my favorite things

one of my favorite threats is “youre not invited to my birthday party anymore”.

from ages 4 to 11 its one of the most heinous things you can say, then 12 through 17 its just embarassing cuz teenz think that thats a childish thing to say, but from 18 onward, it only gets more and more effective, if only because it confuses the person youre speaking to.

its like a verbal smoke bomb. it catches them off guard and disorients them to the point that they might not even know how to react.

one of the subtle things i like about Lance and Keith’s interactions is Lance explaining stuff he’s talking about after realizing Keith is a bit out of the loop with the mainstream

eventually Lance just explains stuff so Keith gets the reference

i just think thats so nice tbh. i appreciate Lance helping Keith understand mainstream references

“I’ll protect you… no matter what”

The “me” couple are not really partners. They may love each other; they may be happy enough. But they don’t operate as effectively in love or work as the “we” couple. The “we” couples are unquestionably a team. You see it in their body language and especially in their speech. And when they have successes or problems they view it as something happening to both of them.

i think about adult giorno a lot…..too much

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

Fake Chats #137
  • Jungkook: if I was really a cop, I'd totally arrest you.
  • Jimin: on what grounds?
  • Jungkook: of being too cute?
  • Jimin: wouldn't you just have to arrest yourself, then?
  • Jungkook: no.
  • Jimin: I think you would.
  • Jungkook: no.
  • Jimin: you're pretty cute.
  • Jungkook: but you're WAY too cute, is the point here.
  • Jimin: so you're gonna lock me up so only you can see me?
  • Jungkook: exact-, hang on. No, that's not what I mean.
  • Jimin: what do you mean, then?
  • Jungkook: see, this is precisely the sort of smug, adorable smile that will get you arrested.
  • Jimin: good thing you're not a cop then, huh?
  • Jungkook: doesn't prevent me from throwing you over my shoulder and taking you wherever I like.
  • Jimin: go ahead. I'll just steal your favorite shirts and hum your favorite songs while cuddling Tae.
  • Jungkook: that's illegal. I'll arrest you for that, too
  • Jimin: Jungkookie.
  • Jungkook: what?
  • Jimin: you're cute.
  • Jungkook: I don't like you. I'm locking you in my room.
  • Jimin: okay. Are we gonna cuddle all night? I wanna wear one of your big shirts.
  • Jungkook:
  • Taehyung: see, this is why you don't play these games with Jiminnie. He inevitably wins.
  • Jungkook: why are you always around to witness my pain?
  • Taehyung: is there really an answer to that question?
  • Cooper Lawrence: I love how your fans love to speculate about every single syllable, everything you've written like, sweet creature, so i don't know if you saw this but this is my favorite thing. So all over twitter and social, they're sure that it's not about a girl, it's about Louis and that, you know, especially like two hearts in one home, it's hard when we argue, we're both stubborn, they're sure that that's about your relationship with Louis Tomlinson, is it?
  • Harry: I mean.... i think... umm... *makes uncomfortable noises*... i mean... i think everyone... people are always gonna speculate about what songs are about, um, and i don't think i'd ever want to tell someone that they're wrong, um, for feeling how they feel about songs even when they're not necessarily right. I think, you know, i think the fun thing in music is you get to, you get to write a song and that's all that you want to say on it and you don't necessarily have to explain it much more than that. But i think if you really listen to the lyrics i think you can work out whether it's about that or not and i'd lean towards no.

One of my favorite things I noticed while rereading parts of the brick this week is that Jehan “payed almost as much attention to the clouds as to passing events” so what I’m saying is Jehan Prouvaire would send their friends random pictures of clouds saying “look it’s a ____” all the time in a modern au.

If you haven’t listened to the entire “Wild World” album by Bastille then you are missing out on some good introspective music time.

salty-nico  asked:

youtuber AU?

you mean one of my favorite aus???

  • nico does your basic vlog-type videos, just your good old story-telling things, with the occasional ghost hunt
    • like literally walks around a cemetery at 3 am and tries to find ghosts to talk to but ends up getting chased out by raccoons or something tbh and thats the whole video 
  • he lives with Reyna who is also a youtuber and is basically the epitome of Self-Care is Important like ends every video with “remember to drink a lot of water today” 
    • a lot of them are workout tips or her making inexpensive healthy snacks from scratch or makeup tutorials bc self care is having wings so sharp they could kill a man
  • since they live together nico and reyna appear in each other’s videos kind of frequently
    • like nico barely edits any of his videos so sometimes reyna will just walk in while hes filming and they’ll have like a five minute conversation and nico just won’t edit it out
    • reyna likes to force nico to bake with her and usually uses his face for her makeup tutorials bc it’s a lot easier to explain what you’re doing when you’re not doing it to yourself
    • reyna refuses to go on ghost hunts with nico bc she’s convinced he will get himself killed one of these days and with his luck that video will be a livestream
  • Will is not a youtuber bc my boy is busy all the time
    • he lives with kayla bc he can’t afford an apartment to himself and kayla’s the one that introduces him to nico and reyna’s channels and then he binge watches a ton of their videos in like a day bc will could stare at that boys face for 24 hours straight with no regrets
    • kayla and hazel know each other somehow so they set their stupid brothers up on a date
  • will ends up making appearances on both nico and reyna’s channels bc he starts spending like all of his free time with nico
    • like reyna makes a video thats basically just following nico and will around the apartment all day like shes making a nature documentary
    • nico tries to convince will to go on a ghost hunt with him but will values his life
  • sometimes nico stays up all night doing videos and will stays up all night studying so they just,,, sleep. all day.
  • also this is mostly irrelevant to the ship but
    • reyna hates going to the gym so she usually just works out at their apartment and has nico sit on her back while she does pushups (the first time will saw this he filmed it because he thought it was adorable and then reyna put the footage in her next video)
    • eventually reyna’s like “nico you’re too small this isn’t working” so she has will sit on her back instead and nico ends up with a video on his channel thats like twenty minutes long titled “they’re bonding” and its just will studying while reyna does pushups

this seems really long and a lot less solangelo than i intended but they’re there i promise

drop an au in my ask box and i’ll give you a list of headcanons!

anonymous asked:

I just keep thinking about the bay or bae choice but like in the context of the choice the beast gives Wirt at the end of over the garden wall. Like the tornado asking to choose between chloe and Arcadia bay and Max just responding with, "that's dumb" and choosing something else that saves everyone lmao

Haha, I’ve never drawn that comparison but that’s amusing. OTGW is one of my favorite stories in general at this point, though. Thinking on all of this led to an informal essay that helps me ground myself in my own mistakes with other fics I’ve worked on, All Wounds’ planning stages, and how I’m approaching its impending ending.

This one’s a bit of a doozie.

(I will be referencing elements of the endings to Over the Garden Wall, Life is Strange, Steins;Gate, and Oxenfree, in case you’re worried about knowing things you don’t yet want to know)

OTGW and LIS are very different stories dealing with very different themes, and OTGW can get away with a blunt and brusque resolution like that because it’s a dark comedy that’s in many ways subverting or teasing a lot of melodramatic tropes. LIS often introduces tropes and then peels back a layer and asks us to look deeper, which is a whole other sort of deal.

The problem, though, is that its own finale and final climax kind of doesn’t hold up, because it hinges upon a choice that really makes no sense – and a moral-oriented choice, at that, which makes it even harder to swallow.

With Wirt and the Beast, there’s a physical character within the world to confront. To call out. To vanquish or scare off or outsmart. Greg’s disposition can be broken apart and he can be released. The entire story is about mystery and, well

OTGW makes no allusions that its story isn’t supposed to quite make sense, it embraces its mystery, and it subverts things by making ‘reality’ a hidden element until the final act.

The story makes it pretty obvious that this world isn’t supposed to make much sense, too, which leads us to not really question things when it doesn’t.

Wirt is the elder brother, he’s supposed to set an example, he’s supposed to look out for his sibling, and he fails.

And while there’s a lot of darkness to this story, it is, ultimately, a comedy, first and foremost, and most resolutions with the various antagonists are resolved with some kind of clever or amusing tactic. It doesn’t want us to take it too seriously, and it’s often making fun of tropes in dramatic fantasy stories.

What’s happening with Max, Chloe, and the tornado isn’t so physical as being lost, as confronting magical beasts. It’s abstract and unexplained, yet the story wants us to take it seriously and tries (weakly) to ‘explain’ things. This falls short because there aren’t really any concrete, established rules, and yet we’re supposed to buy into everything being Max’s fault when we don’t even know how it’s her fault. This is tricky because within the context of the narrative, it makes the player assume the position and perspective the creators wanted:

Max Caulfield is supposed to choose between the greater good, or what she desires as an individual.

The premise of that choice is great, and it’s what the entire game has been foreshadowing and leading up to. The execution is just very iffy to me because of the dodgy attempt at explanation…without explaining anything. ‘Chaos Theory’ literally does not work the way the game alludes to it. The writers know none of this makes sense, which is why in the finale they unfortunately go as bluntly as to make Chloe say:
