Pursuing photography as a hobby, Leonardo Watch is living a normal life with his parents and sister. But when he obtains the “All-seeing Eyes of the Gods” at the expense of his sister’s eyesight, he goes to Hellsalem’s Lot in order to help her by finding answers about the mysterious powers he received. He soon runs into Libra, and when Leo unexpectedly joins their ranks, he gets more than what he bargained for.

Taurus: Mushishi - 46 Episodes (2 seasons)

“Mushi”: the most basic forms of life in the world. They exist without any goals or purposes aside from simply “being.” They are beyond the shackles of the words “good” and “evil.” Mushi can exist in countless forms and are capable of mimicking things from the natural world such as plants, diseases, and even phenomena like rainbows.

This is, however, just a vague definition of these entities that inhabit the vibrant world of Mushishi, as to even call them a form of life would be an oversimplification. Detailed information on Mushi is scarce because the majority of humans are unaware of their existence.

So what are Mushi and why do they exist? This is the question that a “Mushishi,” Ginko, ponders constantly. Mushishi are those who research Mushi in hopes of understanding their place in the world’s hierarchy of life.

Ginko chases rumors of occurrences that could be tied to Mushi, all for the sake of finding an answer.

It could, after all, lead to the meaning of life itself.

Libra: No Game No Life - 12 Episodes

No Game No Life is a surreal comedy that follows Sora and Shiro, shut-in NEET siblings and the online gamer duo behind the legendary username “Kuuhaku.” They view the real world as just another lousy game; however, a strange e-mail challenging them to a chess match changes everything—the brother and sister are plunged into an otherworldly realm where they meet Tet, the God of Games.

The mysterious god welcomes Sora and Shiro to Disboard, a world where all forms of conflict—from petty squabbles to the fate of whole countries—are settled not through war, but by way of high-stake games. This system works thanks to a fundamental rule wherein each party must wager something they deem to be of equal value to the other party’s wager. In this strange land where the very idea of humanity is reduced to child’s play, the indifferent genius gamer duo of Sora and Shiro have finally found a real reason to keep playing games: to unite the sixteen races of Disboard, defeat Tet, and become the gods of this new, gaming-is-everything world.

A “From Happiness” Special Edition screening was held at SMTOWN Theatre this morning, featuring behind the scene footages of EXO filming photo book “Dear Happiness” in Fiji. The DVD will be released November 2017. 

@__sobD

Must definitely watch Kyungsoo that plays rugby, also Kyungsoo when playing tug while holding on to the camera…

@noexit_DO

For those that are going for the surround viewing, Kyungsoo’s abs isn’t captured in direct line of sight in the middle of screen, watch out for the background on left while the scene capture the other members.

@noexit_DO

Really, from the parts when the rugby game started, Kyungsoo is really cute. The moment the game started, he defended so aggressively. When he caught the rugby ball and ran, he fell suddenly. It was crazy, really.

©noexit_DO

Kyungsoo really is a diving genius! 

@0124dks

Kyungsoo removed his shirt!!! He removed his shirt and was only wearing shorts. He looked really happy while playing with the rest. Why is Kyungsoo so much like a child kkk

@Dyo99KkoMI01

When asked if they knew the rules of the rugby game, everyone answered “no” brightly. kkk Even so, they started the game without knowing the rules anyway. In the end, the moment the game started, Kyungsoo used his entire body to block Junmyeon, hugged him really tightly and refused to let him move.

charming-langst  asked:

I NEED more of your mafia au in my life. So please continue, I'll make it worthwhile. *slides you Shiny Ninetails Pokémon card and a pack of Trident two layer gum*

Okay everyone, I would just like to say that yes, there will be a Part 4 because I still have some scenes in mind. But the fact that you take time to send me asks about the MafiaAU: Lance Salazar really made my day as well as when some of you commented on the post itself. And thanks to those who liked it and special thanks to those who shared it!

Also @charming-langst​….how did you guessed that I like nine tails? *narrowing my eyes at you* are you spying on me? Joke! But really, it was such a coincidence that you guessed my favorite!


At the age of eight, Lance’s studies about their world started. His childhood became limited ever since he showed his intelligence level once during the family’s recreational activities. Honestly, Lance thought that they were just playing a simple board game. His father explained to him the rules and for little Lance back then, it was fairly easy. He beat his father five times in a row. It was after a few years passed when Lance discovered that his father was a genius chess player (Vongola Decimo always called his father for a game or two) and strategist.

At the age of twelve, Lance sneaked into the meeting room of his father due to a dare from one of his siblings. He didn’t manage to get inside the room though for a certain man caught his attention. Maybe the man was near his fifties but his features still showed that he was one of those types that could easily get the attention of others. Later on, he discovered that the name of the man was “Reborn” and that he was the most trusted adviser of Vongola Decimo. The guy was also known as the number one hitman in the Mafia world. Maybe this Reborn person saw something in him for the next day Decimo himself visited Lance personally. They chatted for a bit and play some board game called “Games of the Generals”. Lance managed to win 2 out of 3.

Lance was a natural charmer. He could melt anyone’s heart (hearts that were not frozen cold) and he knew this himself. Sometimes he used it to his advantage whenever he was kidnapped. But if things got worst then there was a reason why he was trained how to use the gun.

He was no stranger to blood. Once or twice he passed through their interrogation rooms and the sight of bloodied and dismembered bodies became a norm for him. Lance made his first interrogation at 15 when he and his youngest sister got kidnapped. A few exchanged of gun shots here and there, and Lance managed to turn the tables around. The hunter became the hunted, a phrase said from a number of his favourite movies.

Lance was labelled as “Young Demon” that day.

Just because he was used to the sight and smell of murder didn’t mean that he wanted to live his whole life like this. Lance has dreams of his own. He has dreams that he wanted to reach with his own hands.

Hands of Lance and not the hands of Salazar’s.

Lance knew that the Vongola Decimo favoured him from the rest of the children of their allies. Though he never knew the reason why, Lance used this to his advantage. He listed all the reasons why he wanted to get out, why he wanted to be freed. Of course all of his reasonings were weak, Lance knew this and the Vongola knew this. But still, Decimo talked to that Reborn person and after a few hours of waiting, they escorted Lance back to the Salazar’s mansion and talked about the future with the Salazar Don.

At the age of 16, Lance was no longer a member of the dark world. He was just an ordinary civilian.

Yeah, right.

Everyone knows you could never escape the underworld, especially if you were born inside it.

The deal made was consisted of: one, Lance would stay in the vacation house given to him by Decimo himself and located in Cuba. Two, some Salazar’s men would check up on him personally every other week. Three, he was not allowed to invite any civilian (even though Lance was technically considered as civilian also) in his house. Four, he was obligated to meet or talk to the family in important events which was birthdays and Christmas.

So all in all it was like he had just taken a temporary vacation away from the Mafia.

And it was a good thing he only cut the Mafia ties but not his ties as a blood relative.

Because Lance loved his family with all his heart, never question him about this.


Pidge was beyond irritated right now. Who would have thought that Lance was a Salazar? That Salazar. It was like suddenly all the pieces clicked together into their own proper places. She thought Lance was born in a family of soldiers or just used to play strategic games during his teenage years.

She never freaking expected that Lance was born inside the Mafia.

It was lunch time and everyone was eating together. When Pidge said everyone she did meant everyone. Lance just gave his servants one look and they all settled themselves with the rest of team Voltron on the dining area after they put down all the foods and drinks.

The table was a bit similar to the one they used in the castle. It was long and elliptical in shape, she was used seeing Allura to be on what the Paladins had dubbed as the head part of the table so seeing Lance in that position was very unusual for Pidge. Lance kept cooing like a baby when he saw the foods and drinks on the table, at least some things hadn’t changed. Pidge didn’t really know if she knew Lance that deep despite being stuck together in space for five years.

“Wow! Esmeralda, your cooking is the best! No offence, Hunk.” Lance added the last sentence as an afterthought when he took a bite of what he called ropa vieja.

“None taken, Lance. This taste really good.”

Esmeralda, Pidge assumed it was the woman sitting across from her, smiled when she heard the praises of the rest of the Paladins and the obvious delight of the two Alteans when they started to eat also.

“Thank you. We really missed your presence here, Young Master.”

“Ah…I’ll say stop calling me ‘Young Master’ but…”

“But we will just keep doing it because someone needs to remind you what is your real position.” It was the head butler named Alejandro who spoke before cleaning his lips using the napkin and Pidge was reminded of those movies where people try to learn proper table manners in just one night. Good thing Lance didn’t care about proper etiquette inside his own house.

“Give me a break, Alejandro. I’m already 24 years old! I’m not that young boy anymore!”

“And yet you are still that young boy who almost gave Master Halberd a heart attack when he saw you waving a gun.” One of the maids named Juliana commented as she poured Allura’s cup with apple juice.

“That was one time! And it was Falcata’s fault for leaving her gun on her study table.” Pidge could not believe it, Lance was pouting because his servants were ganging up on him. She could not consider this as sharing embarrassing stories because imagining little Lance waving a gun with the safety either on or off was not a really good picture in her mind right now.

“Come to think of it, isn’t it because of that that Master Khanda started teaching Young Master Lance how to hold a gun?” Marcelo looked up at the ceiling as if it could verify his words.

“Emphasize the word hold. Mistress Flyssa threw a fit when she saw her older brother teaching Young Master Lance how to shoot.” Benita snickered when she refreshed the memory of her twin brother.

“And because of that, Master Halberd was forced to step in and declared that Young Master Lance will only be allowed to shoot a gun when he reached the age of thirteen.”

“Hey, you are just two years older than me, Learco! Why are you calling me ‘Young Master’ too?! And why are you guys sharing my childhood stories to my friends?!” Lance started hitting the table with his right hand like a petulant child as he focused his gaze on the left side of the table where his butlers and maids were seated.

“Because it’s fun~” Sylvia sang as she waved her fork around.

“And two years is still two years. Which means that you are technically my ‘Young Master’.” Learco grinned but ducked under the table on the last second when Lance threw his glass towards him.

“I can’t believe this,” Lance held his chest in a show of mock hurt, “betrayed by my second family. After five years and this is the welcome that I get? I should have fired all of you before I got blasted in space by a sentient lion.”

“We really missed you, Young Master Lance.” Pidge heard the oldest human male in the room and she saw that the man was giving Lance a fatherly smile which their Blue Paladin returned with an equally soft smile.

“See? Only Grandpa Eterio lives up to his name!”

“Eh, that is because Grandpa Eterio likes to baby you, Young Master.

“That’s it.”

Learco yelped when Lance took hold of the knife beside his plate and jumped towards him. The rest of the maids and butlers just continued eating and coaxed the Voltron team to do the same while Learco was running for his dear life because Lance has long legs and the stamina to run a five kilometer marathon.

If this was the people that Lance considered as his second family then Pidge thought that she must ready herself in meeting the main family.

No wonder Lance asked them to bring their bayards.

Mafia AU: Lance Salazar (OCs mini guide) 

OK, so I wrote a complaint to the BBC. As I’m not from the uK, I wrote a real letter:

BBC Complaints
PO Box 1922

Hamburg, 29th January 2016

Sherlock Series 4

Dear BBC,

once, you were the beacon of truth and originality. Your shows were groundbreakingly brilliant. As I am a livelong fan of Sherlock Holmes, I was especially delighted by the new adaptation done by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. I followed this series since 2010.

Therefore, can you imagine my shock when I just watched series 4? As I don’t live in the UK, I pre-ordered the DVD and just watched it over the weekend. I loved everything on this series up to The Abominable Bride. But series 4 was not only disappointing, it is, in my honest opinion, pure treachery in regard to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories. Please, let me explain:

Especially The Final Problem has nothing to do with how a Sherlock Holmes story works and it’s a right affront to say that it was adapted from the works of Conan Doyle. because it wasn’t.

No, this is not about canonical purity (like “Eurus wasn’t in the books!” whining). It’s about the structure of the narrative that makes a Holmes story.

Sherlock Holmes is not a magic wizard - he operates by logic. Therefore, his deductions are comprehensible and reasonable. When he explains them, people can follow through (even saying that it sounds easy when explained). The deductions follow logical rules to determine the truth.

Now, by introducing an omnipotent, superintelligent, crazy and therefore unpredictable previously unknown factor like Eurus into the above equation, who, because she’s mentally ill and a genius, is motivated by inexplicable and irrational impulses, the writers literally threw over the board. It’s not a game anymore, indeed, because this is not the Holmesian game as it has been played for decades. It broke the rules, it revoked the contract the writers had with the audience: that when a Holmes story is adapted, the viewer has a chance to solve the puzzle. The lost sister was never foreshadowed in any episode, not even hinted at, before suddenly taking centre stage in the penultimate episode. That, at least to me, is rather cheap storytelling, even cheating on your audience.

Because we didn’t have a chance to figure it out. The writers and the director reduced that beautifully crafted, exciting show to a pile of senseless rug pulls just for the sake of it. There is nothing to analyse, no motivation to look into, no making sense of it. And that is not only true for The Final Problem now, because by carelessly interlocking the Eurus factor with previous episodes, Moffat and Gatiss even destroyed the frame of reference I thought they had established.

Another point I want to complain about, that intelocks with Eurus, is the show’s dealing with its female protagonists. They either sacrifice themselves for the male hero(s) (Mary), are reduced to a sobbing, pining mess (Molly), used in a purely sexual way (Irene Adler) or have to be locked away because they are superintelligent and therefore crazy. Whereas Sherlock and Mycroft were shown to control their mental powers and reign them in to make use of them (Mycroft as a government official, Sherlock at least as a freelancer, albeit with a drugs problem), the sister wasn’t able to channel her extraordinary gift. She doesn’t seem to have got any help, but was just locked away. To me, as a female academic, that says that very intelligent women are also easily bound to go off the rocker because they are too emotional (Eurus apparently killed Sherlock’s childhood friend because she was jealous). I find that depiciton of female genius highly problematic.

And please tell me why the show was marketed with the catch phrases „Miss Me?“ - a hint to Moriarty – and „I love you“ or „Sherlock is in love“? Because Moriarty was only shown in a flashback and wasn’t that important after all, because he was only employed by Eurus; and with whom Sherlock might have been in love didn’t register with me. Certainly not with poor Molly Hooper, or Irene Adler (who’s a self-proclaimed lesbian). Was it the sister he didn’t even know he had? Well, you certainly love your siblings, but I hope you are not actually in love with them, as this indicates romantic interest…

In all, I feel rather let down and a bit cheated by Sherlock series 4. Sorry for throwing that at you, but as I said, I truly loved this show once.

Yours sincerely

This is the reply I got:

On the plus side, it’s not the general ‘NO JOHNLOCK’ response - on the down side, they simply say that you can’t please everybody (true), and, as the series is so hugely successful, it doesn’t really matter if a few people had issues with the series…

Yet I do think that the conclusion is the most vital part of a series, especially if the conclusion throws most of the previous series overboard and retcons large parts of its own narrative.

*shrugs* But what can you do?

@op-norbury

Tom à la ferme is quite similar to Killing Stalking

This is a psychological thriller film and it creep me out  . Well , maybe i’m a little axaggerated but without blood , killing , many kind of cheapy scary stuff , you can feel the fear from this film . Dolan is absolutely a genius .I’m now realizing how KS really remind me of this Film which i watched a long time ago .

As the writers and director of Tom à la ferme is a gay man - Xavier Dolan who is a young potential writer/director , Tom à la ferme is also about a gay man :

“ Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for the funeral of his boyfriend Guillaume. There, he is shocked to learn that no one knows who he is, nor his relationship to the deceased. Guillaume’s brother Francis soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the family’s name and the deceased’s grieving mother, Agathe, Tom now has to play the peacekeeper in a household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his “trip” to the farm.  “ - wikipedia

                                      Shy , sweet and cute Tom 

The point is Francis is really an asshole . He literally locked Tom with him , he is a homophobic , an abuser . Sound familiars hah ? He is Sangwoo , only he is not a serial killer but Francis is violent . 

Through the film , you’ll see Francis emotional abuse Tom . Tom sometime try to escape . There are still some scene which was considered romantic in this movie like when Tom and Francis danced together 

Sorry for my bad language , i can’t show anything better. English is not my first language then i learned to speak French live in Paris now , my English’ve gone worse . But the movie itself is really good , amazing scene , amazing atmosphere setting . You need to watch it >.< 

docloudscomeinpurple  asked:

Also, picture the following: Batkids playing UNO. That is all.

OKAY YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS BRILLIANT AND I’VE TAKEN MY TIME RESPONDING BECAUSE I HAD SO MANY SCENARIOS IN MY HEAD

Cass almost ALWAYS wins so by the fourth game she’s the referee because things get VIOLENT (which she ignores because the only basic rule is “no bleeding on the new carpet”)

Tim is great at counting cards. He’s a genius at probability.
So you know what happens?

“Draw four.”
“Hmph.”
“Draw four.”
“You’re doing this on purpose, I can’t find a red card or a frickin’ 6.”
“Draw four.”
“WHERE IS THE CARD TIM GIVE IT TO ME.”
“Draw four.”
A roar of rage and then the table is upended.
Dick is in between Jason and Tim, prying them apart and Damian is shouting about ruining the game “You messed up the odds, Todd! If we aren’t going to play this game right–”
Cass is attempting to eat all the popcorn in the process and Bruce comes in slightly scandalized at seeing his mostly adult children brawling on the floor.
“OW! Bruce! He bit me!”
“Because you punched me!”
“Jason, keep your hands to yourself. Tim, don’t bite your brother.”
“I’ll do what I want.”
“Excuse me, Timothy? Cassandra, stop throwing popcorn at Dick expecting him to catch in his mouth while he’s wrestling the boys.”
Plop.
A popcorn hits Bruce square in the nose.
And then suddenly it’s the kids vs. Bruce, throwing cards and popcorn and other game pieces and they’re running up the stairs while their dad is behind them, opening doors and messing up rugs in the hopes to get him to trip. They make it to the attic (which actually has medieval swords, Bruce’s great-uncle had something of a history obsession) and then propose to give Damian up as a sacrifice to quell his fury.
“You’re all jerks,” Damian informs them sullenly while Cassandra rifles around behind them. After a moment they push him forward chanting “Sacrifice the assassin baby” good-naturedly and Cass offers to escort him so he can’t get away. They’re halfway to Bruce when suddenly–
Cass whips out a pitching machine and tennis balls go flying in both directions
“They’ve gone rogue!” the others shout while she and Damian escape out of a window, Cass with the L shape on her forehead and Damian shouting “Assassin kids for the win!”

And that’s the story of how Alfred now has to supervise game night.

Ego Cards Against Humanity!

I just finished watching (again) Markiplier’s CAH series with Tyler and Ethan and I just had some ridiculous ideas:

- Jack’s Egos and Mark’s Egos get stuck together during Jack’s visit to LA and Wilford has the genius idea to play CAH.
- Not everyone gets involved, but somehow Anti manages to rope Dark into playing, and alcohol may get involved.
- Anti makes up a rule where if your card isn’t chosen as a winner, you have to take shots. It’s possible for the egos because even though they are extensions of Mark, they don’t have his intolerance of alcohol.
- Things quickly spiral out of hand.
- Wilford is a master of this game even when drunk. His speech does become a lot more slurred though, and only Dark seems to be able to tell what he’s saying so he translates.
- Not that Wilford gets drunk quickly because he tends to win a lot.
- Anti’s answers are usually the stupidest, or darkest ones, and he wins quite a few times because he plays on Dark’s sense of humour.
- Likewise, Dark manipulates his answers based on who the Czar is.
- Schneeplestein tends to go on tangents when he gets a particular interesting answer to the black cards.
- Googles, despite being a computer, are not very good, because they tend to be a bit too logical with their answers and they aren’t always funny.
- As the alcohol keeps flowing, things get weirder.
- Dark tends to get side-tracked/distracted when reading the cards, especially by what the other’s are doing. Somehow his aura stays under control, but there are times when it cracks and he loses it and the table nearly gets flipped.
- He also laughs, and Wilford records it as blackmail.
- Wilford starts losing eventually because everyone can see some kind of pattern in the way he answers. It only takes a few shots too many for him to get a knife out and threaten to “tickle” people.
- Anti’s glitching gets out of control to the point no one can tell what’s saying. He’s reduced to a mess of giggles and curses.
- Schneeplestein eventually loses interest in the game, and becomes much more interested in finding out what’s under Dark’s shell.
- At some point a fight ensues.
- Mark and Jack find the egos the next morning sprawled about the room. The entire deck of CAH is strewn over the floor, there’s empty bottles everywhere and the table is upside down.
- No one remembers who won.

A mathematical challenge.

In 1929 in Göttingen, a challenge to express any whole number using the number 2 precisely four times, and using only well-known mathematical symbols, was introduced. 

The first few numbers are easy:

1 = (2 + 2)/(2 + 2),

2 = (2/2) + (2/2),

3 = (2 x 2) - (2/2),

4 = 2 + 2 + 2 - 2.

The game became much more difficult even for Göttingen’s finest mathematical minds. Hundreds of hours were spent playing the game with higher and higher numbers - until Paul Dirac found a simple and general formula enabling any number to be expressed using four 2s, entirely within the rules. He had rendered the game pointless. 

Dirac’s solution relies on a basic property of logarithms: 

and is

where the number of radicals is exactly n square roots. 

One may think that Dirac killed the game using only three 2s. Each symbol in the formula is very common in mathematics, so Dirac’s solution is still within the rules of the game.

People want to know what Maya got Lucas for Christmas

But consider this…

It probably wasn’t that great. If she even got anything for him in the first place.

Unlike Riley getting Farkle a girlfriend-y gift, this would mean something. Maya’s been very careful about her relationship with Lucas since the triangle ended. 

She’s been avoiding eye contact, refusing to banter with him (except maybe in SS), and her jabs have a bit more bite than sass (”You think you are [important], but no”). Whether or not she’s fully considered why it’s necessary for her to do all those things, the fact remains that she’s intentionally creating distance between them. 

Enter Secret Santa. Lucas didn’t want to do it. He went all the way to Texas, presumably so he wouldn’t have to. Maya already assumed the whole production would be stupid and awful. He’s practically given permission for everyone to leave him out of Secret Santa…so where’s her motivation to send something all the way to Texas?

Afterward, this becomes even more true. The thoughtful gifts brought each pair closer. MUCH closer. And as far as she knows, Lucas didn’t send Riley anything. (Even if we put in the deleted scene, okay, Lucas gave a poor girl a gift on Riley’s behalf. Cute and all, but not as personal as the others.)

That means, as much as she might want to, as much as she might have had a great idea for something that would melt his heart and show him how well she knows him, she. wouldn’t. do. it. Jumping back into a triangle-like situation after the whole thing’s been “resolved” would most definitely not be as innocent as the first time Maya got dragged in, and she wouldn’t risk hurting Riley like that.

So for all the fanfiction stories I’ve seen of legitimately adorable presents Maya gave Lucas on the down low, consider this: How much more likely was something like this?

[Gang at Topanga’s, hanging out]

Farkle: Okay, Zay, you’ve finished your homework. Can we go now? I’m just about to cut you off from all the supplies you need to survive.

Zay: I know the whole point of your nerd game was for me to spend more time with you and Smackle, Farkle, but can I just…I don’t know, resign or something? We’ve been playing for like a week, and I need my beauty sleep!

Smackle: When Farkle and I rule the world, you’ll be playing this game a lot more, so get moving!

[Zay, Farkle, and Smackle exit]

Riley: You know, Zay can complain all he wants, but he’s gotten closer to them since Christmas. [Looks pointedly at Maya]

Maya: Yes, Riley. You’re a Secret Santa genius. Happy?

Riley: Yes.

Lucas: Hey, who got me?

Riley: You didn’t…? Let’s see, there was me and Farkle, Zay and Smackle, Smackle and…

[Maya looking innocently off in the distance]

Riley: Maya! Did you not do Secret Santa? Lucas even did Secret Santa, and he was in Texas!

Maya: Do you have any idea how long it would have taken me to go to the store, find a gift, then go to the post office? And then, you know, there’s the issue with priority box! padded envelope! normal envelope! Honestly, my present should just be me still being alive after thinking of all the stuff I would have had to do. 

Riley: [Stubbornly] You could have just given it to him when he got back.

Maya: [Looks lazily around her and the homework spread out on the table. Picks up her calculator.] Merry Christmas, Lucas. [Hands him calculator, then pretends to get back to homework.]

There’s a beat, then Maya snatches the calculator back.

Maya: Actually, can I borrow your Christmas present? I don’t have enough fingers for this problem.

Zay had a plan. Albeit, a potentially risky plan, but a plan nonetheless.

He knew these people pretty well, even if they were all adults now and spent years away from each other. And because he knows them well he knows they need a little help opening up. It was clear that so many things were being unsaid. Not to mention the tension in the air was palpable. Alcohol may not be the smartest choice but one way or another things were coming out.  

He smiles devilishly as he jogs over to the fully stocked bar, grabbing the closest bottle to him and six shot glasses as the other five friends retreat back to the seating area. This wasn’t the first time they played ‘Truth or Shot’ as a group. It was almost a tradition in a sense. They played it on prom night after they wrote their letters, they played it on graduation night and on the last day of summer before they all went their separate ways. Each time they swore it was the last time, the game was a surefire way of getting in trouble but he couldn’t resist the temptation of suggesting it each time.

the three of them walked into the establishment, in which you could only enter if you were a family accompanying a child. shiro approached the lady at the check-in, “there’s three of us, me, my husband, “ lance made a fake gagging face in pidge’s direction, “and our daughter, pidge,” pidge waved and smiled.

“right this way!” the check-in lady said, seating them and offering them menus. after she left, lance looked at shiro, “husband?! why couldn’t you have said brother and niece or something?!”

“gay intimidation, lance. pidge may look convincing, but even more so, they would fear turning away a gay couple because the internet could wreck them,” shiro grinned, “so now, it’s pizza and games… all day. bingo.”

“Read it back to me!” I declare as I lean heavily on the fridge door and shift aside a casserole to reach the bottle of pinot that is my target. As it turns out, Starla Summers is rather generous and should chair the grief and welcoming committees in this town, seeing as how her contribution to the Madge-is-Grieving-We-Must-Feed-Her fund was ten bottles of wine. Cheap wine, but I’m trying not to judge, seeing as how I am suspected of murder and immaculate conception.

“Hot buns of steel!” Madge shouts from the table as her forearms slide forward across the surface.

“Wrong list!” I protest and fall into my seat. I squint at the bottle trying to focus on removing the cork.

zekefreek  asked:

Do you think Tsumugi was anywhere near as smart as Ouma or did she just have the advantage of blindsiding him? Even in his final moments, he didn't seem to suspect her any more than any of the others. Atleast that we get to see.

Someone asked me a somewhat similar question awhile back and put it in really good terms. I don’t remember the exact phrasing, but it was something about how if Ouma is a chessmaster (and I do think he is, given all the evidence), then Tsumugi is an opportunist. I still think they really nailed it: opportunist is a perfect word for her.

If I had to compare how smart they both are in terms of just intellect? Ouma would probably be smarter. Considering he definitely seems to have some variation of SHSL Analysis, his predictive and analytical ability nearly rival Junko’s and Kamukura’s. Even taking into account the fact that he really is genuinely childish and even klutzy sometimes, he still seems… well, like a genius.

Who knows maybe i’ll make a generation 11 :)

Tim Drake in the new 52

Okay, maybe I’m jumping to conclusions here. The New 52 hasn’t been going for all that long, but I need to get this out.

WTF?! What are you doing with Tim? 
He’s a gymnast now? He gets basically scouted to be Robin?
No! 

You take one of my favourite characters in the superhero genre, probably the one I identify with the most and you erase everything about his back story that made me love him so much?

Tim figuring out that Dick was Robin and then that Jason took over later on…. that was him! That was Tim being clever, Tim connecting the dots. Tim being obsessive and stubborn. Tim understood the dynamic duo and why Batman needed a partner! 

To Tim it wasn’t about being Robin. It wasn’t about having fun or being a hero. He became Robin, because Batman needed a side-kick. Batman.. heck Bruce himself needed someone to ground him. Batman is an obsessive figure, he’s driven. So it makes sense that sometimes he looses sight of the big picture while chasing after a particularly nasty criminal. The more his focus narrows, the farther he dives into the dark, the more he gets lost. Tim tried to get Dick to come back. He didn’t necessarily want to be Robin, but he felt like he had to. 

So Tim basically killed himself prepping. He wasn’t a gymnast or a more or less experienced street fighter. He built his body and mind in order to shoulder the responsibility of being Batman’s partner. He fought his way into Batman’s life, he had to convince him. And you know what? He was too damn good, he didn’t give Bruce the slightest reason to make him quit. 

I always liked Tim, because he was smart yeah, but he had to fight for everything. He is a really good detective and part of that is because he works harder than anyone else. I think he even works harder than Bruce. Because besides being Robin / Red Robin and doing all the research and programming for basically anyone who asks him to.. he also finishes highschool with great grades and has a seat on Wayne enterprises leaderboard.

THIS is what I love about Tim. He forces himself to think outside the book. You wanna know how he won in a situation where no one was rushing to his help and he was fully aware that he’d get to his physcial limits?
Because he knows his enemies. He knew damn well that he couldn’t beat Ra’s as long as he played by his rules, so he changed the whole game. He attacked the organisation instead of Ra’s himself.  And this is only possible, because Tim is so well informed. He knows how to ruin Ra’s business in Gotham. There is a reason for all the coffee jokes with Tim. He is willing to sacrifice his sleeping hours to be prepared for the next time. Having a plan for every situation, he took Batman’s words to heart and does his best to make it true.

That’s Red Robin for you. Arguably even a better detective than Batman himself. Kills himself prepping, a genius with tech, on par with Barbara. And he doesn’t hesitate to use his network. Yeah, Bruce is building Batman incorporated. But even before Bruce did that in earnest, Tim had already built his own net with the titans and some other vigilantes in Gotham. 

As for Tim Drake… Similarly to Dick Grayson, Tim has made it a point to have a life as a civilian too. It’s not like Red Robin is his real identitiy and he just has to keep up the facade of Tim Drake. No, Tim Drake is an honor student, a friend to the titans, a board member of Wayne enterprises. He has friends at university too, it’s not just the vigilantes in his inner circle. Sure, he keeps his alter ego a secret, but that doesn’t mean, he doesn’t trust them in an every day way.

We see Tim as a civilian a bit more with the Teen Titans and I really love the way they portray him there. Tim is a good guy. He is the kind of nice and genuine guy that makes friends without even trying. So I always felt like that in a weird way, he almost had two different personalities. Tim Drake and Red Robin are quite different, but I figured it was, because he tried to shut out his emotions when working a case. It’s not like Dick who cares about everyone. It’s rather that Tim is very intense with his affection and he puts everyone else’s feelings before his own. I can’t explain it well, but the way Dick cares about people and the way Tim does, is very different to me. It’s like Tim tries to distance himself, in order to protect them, but he fails because he cares about them too deeply. 


So, what was my point again?
Right, FUCK YOU DC! You better get Tim an awesome arc! You better give me a damn good reason to accept all these changes. 

Here’s To The Crazy Ones.....

The misfits….

The rebels…. 

The troublemakers…

The round pegs in square holes…. 

The ones who see things differently… 

They are not fond of the rules and have no respect for the status quo….

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them….

The only thing you can’t do is ignore them….

Because they change things…..

They push the human race forward….

And while some may see them as the crazy ones….

We see genius. 

Analyzing the rooftop scene

I couldn’t fit in this particular post everything I want to say about TRF without writing an actual book, so this one is my reading of Sherlock and Moriarty’s psychological state and what happened while they were on the rooftop. Undoubtedly, this meta will need me to write backing metas about more technical things and the role of third parties (including Mycroft and Molly). More details about the backing metas in the end of the post. 

FYI it’s a long post but very simple and full of images and gifs. Well, if it’s too long for you but you’re interested, just read what I say after the last gif. Pretty much explains my interpretation in short. 

Also, if this has been supported before, do excuse me and PLEASE give me link to the OP’s blog! Anyway, let’s go.


Four points I take for granted in this theory:

  • There are no Moriarty identical twins (check this sort of a meta I have already made for this)
  • All three theories in TEH are fake, however there might be hints hidden in the most unexpected of moments.
  • RULE #1: There is absolutely no case Moftisson decided to make Sherlock fall from a rooftop without agreeing first how he achieved it and what exactly had happened before. There is no case they decided to wait two years to find a way to explain it after they already had shown his suicide to us. Narration doesn’t work like this. Neither do worldwide famous TV shows.
  • Since we now accept that Moftisson knew from the beginning what exactly happened with Sherlock and the three theories were fake, then the most important question is NOTHow did Sherlock fake his death?”. The most important question is “WHY DID SHERLOCK LIE?”. Think about it. Moftisson know what happened, they could have given us the answer. And if the answer is that Molly, Mycroft and 25 tramps helped Sherlock in his plan, then……….. why did Sherlock lie in the first place? I repeat, if Molly and Mycroft truly helped Sherlock fake his death, then why Sherlock considered it critical to hide how he did it and alternate the technical parts of the story?! 

Possible answer: Because
