Inadvisable character design questions #137:

  • If your character was a tree, what kind of tree would they be?
  • Your character has had a song stuck in their head for the last three days. What song is it?
  • In a deserted-island scenario, would your character consent to be eaten? Why or why not?
  • What’s the pettiest thing your character would at least consider selling their soul to the Devil for?
  • Muffins or bagels?

I blame @springledongle  for this bullshit coming to be, but what glorious bullshit it is.      I had to draw @foxygogogo too, since their Fun Foxy fits this perfectly to me, but that might just be me.

“Tony killed Wanda’s parents”, my ass.  I can't believe that I am writing this post in 2017 but great, whatever...

Right, lately it has been a shot tons of posts of the Defense Squad hijacked with a very known, common sentences since the last three fucking years:

  • Tony killed Wanda’s parents.
  • Tony made the weapons that killed her parents so for that he deserves what she did to him.
  • Tony doesn’t have the right to attack Bucky if he didn’t let Wanda kill him because of her own revenge.
  • You can defend Tony’s reaction and condemn Wanda’s actions in Age of Ultron/CA:CW.

All of this is shit and I can’t believe that we are in fucking 2017 and y'all still don’t get it.

Tony didn’t fucking kill Wanda’s parents. He wasn’t responsible for their deaths. You know why? Because logic say so.

Let’s see this screenshot from Age Of Ultron. The Maximoff’s apartment was destroyed when a shell of a missile fell. A bomb, people, Tony wasn’t there.

Also, the common argument is that Wanda and Pietro were kids and didn’t know better but let’s see here:

Wanda and Pietro were part of protests against the Americans/The Corrupt Government/The Avengers/Wherever, the Marvel wikia and the tie-ins comics describe Sokovia as a war zone. If they’re had enough judgement to participle of those manifestations. That means that they fucking knew what fucking war is. So? Maybe? They could have rethought that the person responsible of making the fucking weapon? They have years to think “hey, maybe if our country is a war zone… maybe our parents were collateral damage.”

Zemo himself described Sokovia as doomed. Even if Tony hadn’t made the weapons, the people that fired them would have bought to another company.

So, let’s go with Tony and his parents.

The fact that you compare the Maximoffs, I tell this again, having fucking years to think that their parents were collateral damage, with Tony and the delivered and planned murder of his parents is laughable.

You’re gonna scream at me that Wanda and Pietro deal with their grieve in a different form? That’s not the point the point is, who was there? Who was in the death scene?

Let me show this again, the Maximoffs saw a bomb, a fucking non-thinking object and decided that the fucking name in it was the responsible for their parent’s dead.

Tony saw this:

And this:

Don’t believe me? Look at his expressions. This is not someone who had years to think “maybe they were collateral damage”. Is not Tony looking at an object, but a living and breathing person who is just next to him.

No, dearies. This was someone who had seconds to react at something horrible. That was a murder, I’m not talking about Bucky being innocent or not. It’s a about a canon fact that you’re trying to cover to excuse the things that Wanda Maximoff did in Age of Ultron. You’re inventing. I just present you the fact here.

So, please. Spare us of the stupidity of “Tony killed Wanda’s parents” posts and hijacking. Tony Stark was never close to her parents. Never touch them, never known them. He wasn’t the person behind heir deaths and you know it.

Bucky killed Howard and Maria Stark. It wasn’t his fault but he did it. He said it himself:. But I did it.

I am not blaming him. I’m not accusing him or saying that was right to harm him. I’m just stating facts and I put the screenshots for that. It’s canon. It happened.

Your “Tony killed Wanda’s parents” did not.

@lokasennahiddleston thank you for the screenshots and you can add what you want. @alethiaii @bitterfriends @thealextheshipper @queenyavengers

in the last three years ive been blessed enough to be able to connect with people all over the country and even some beyond the U.S. i cannot even put into words the smile it puts on my face reading these over and over, the stories of young girls talking about how they found the will to live, or were finally able to seek help, some saying that i helped them along the way. how I’m a bit unsure, but this is why I’m so open about mental health, this is why i talk about it even if it means being ridiculed by some because it means helping others. these mean the world to me so if you’ve ever sent me a letter please know you’ve made my day and impacted me in one way or another💖💖

Rockman And Forte Sidestory Manga

Hey! Long time no update. But I have something for y’all! I’ve been able to obtain the reprints of Ryo Takamisaki’s Rockman.EXE manga. The last three books come with a NEW special sidestory involving Rockman and Forte!

Now, I’m only able to take pictures with my phone, so it’s not a real scan. But hopefully it’s enough for you to enjoy this new content! It’s also Japanese text only, sorry!!!

Here’s the links:

You know, I figured people would do this (there were already posts about it before we even knew if Atem was coming back for real or not) but it still annoys me so much.

I mean I get some people didnt want him to come back for whatever reason, that’s fine but saying that it robbed Yugi of his rightful place is just… so wrong??? in my opinion. Like yes, that could have happened. Like I even made a post about it last year I think, about how it’s possible to handle Atem’s return in a way that overshadows Yugi but it’s also possible to not do that and we should give the movie a chance to see which road they decide to take. And honestly, I dont see how what happened could be considered as the first option at all.

For one thing, looking at the most practical physical aspect - Yugi fought three duels in a row, the last of which was a shadow game sapping him of his life force/energy. And he got knocked around so much in the first duel alone, let alone facing Kaiba afterwards who is not an easy opponent to deal with on a good day (and that was definitely not one of his good days). The kid isnt made of stone. I imagine even Atem would have been having diffuclties by that point. Hell, he did have difficulties - when he was in his own body in the Memory World and was fighting Bakura constantly, he too needed Yugi and co and all his priests dying/giving him their ba/ka to help him restore his energy (which actually now that I’m thinking about it, is an amazing parallel and I need to make a seperate post to properly express how it makes me feel, goddamn this ship will be the death of me). So Yugi passing out after all that? Seems a pretty logical thing to do. Especially since he wasnt even using any additional magical powers or anyone else’s energy to keep going.

Secondly, from a character development perspective - Yugi was the boss. This is the kid who couldnt stand in front of crowds without doing an awkward robot walk, stammering and blushing like crazy - and this same kid now not only has no problem dueling in a high-stakes duel in front of the whole city but also has no problem telling the guy who bascially owns said city to back the fuck off. Honestly, how many characters do you think would have the balls to look Seto Kaiba in the eye and say what Yugi said with the full intention of following through on those words? And to have Kaiba actually listen to them?

Not to mention that he’s also doing the speech at their graduation and he looks perfectly at ease with it.

Yugi has grown so much as a character and the movie showed that so well. He’s living his life, he has plans for the future, he’s confident and still sweet, he can now freely and easily stand up for the things and people he cares about, he believes in himself, he’s willing to fight to the end and not give up even when things look doomed… like how does Atem coming at the literal last second to help out ruin any of that? Or take away from Yugi’s spotlight? Because Yugi was supposed to save the world alone? Does that even make sense when the entire core theme of the show is that you should rely on your friends and let them give you strength and that the power of unity and togetherness and friendship is what saves the world in the end and makes the impossible possible? Did Atem save the world on his own or did all his friends and family support him with all their power?

So for me that was the perfect way to handle both Atem’s return and showcasing Yugi’s growth and strength as his own person/duelist.

myrtlewilson replied to your post: gilmore girls was truly one of the most brutal…

literally why i stopped watching golden girls when my GG obsessed roommate moved out. like after she told me paris wasn’t gay i just last straw man

i was initially watching it with three straight co-workers (like, it was our go-to lunch entertainment of choice, because they were all obsessed with it), and at one point OH during the bangles episode where paris is like, “you know, rory, i think this is the best night i’ve ever had” i was like “wow so paris is a lesbian” and they were like, “???????????????????????????????????? no she’s not why would you say that” and i just rewound the bit where paris says that line and they were all like, “okay but… but… but she’s not though” and then i had to just keep watching it with them for another season and a half pretending my soul wasn’t dying

I'm just sitting here thinking about carrot and luffy and how much trouble they would get in together. If she was in the crew I can just imagine future adventures where nami's barking orders like "zoro you can't go alone you'll get lost!" "Someone go with luffy and carrot they need a chaperone!" I need her in the crew... I NEED IT

RIIIIGHT they’d have so much fun and get into so much nonsense with each other it’d be beautiful

that is another reason i’d love for carrot to become a crew member- the last three to join (four if jinbe joins) are all the “adults” so to speak who have more of their shit together so it’d be fun to have another “kid” join.  she’d have a grand ole time playing with her fellow kids (luffy, usopp and chopper i mean)

anyway here’s luffy and carrot adventuring together while wearing child leashes (probably being held by nami or brook) bc for some reason that’s what this ask inspired me to draw

bigguy4you  asked:

What do you think is the reason the 2012 and 2016 Republican primaries for president were such circuses compared to the Democratic one? Not as in "All Republicans are clowns hurr durr" but that they always start with so many people while the Dems are lucky to get three. What did we have last year, like 12 across two stages? Do you think it's sign of a more scattered party, a more hands-off RNC, or something else?

in 2012 the Democrats ran with the incumbent president.. In 2016, hillary was preordained to be the nominee by the DNC and it’s organization at the top were controlled by either hillary plants or people sympathetic to her.

2012 and 2016 were monstrously hilarious years for the republicans if you enjoy political sideshow and drama

2012 was interesting because the RNC was running “business as usual” evangelicals and neo conservatives. The republican party, by a wide berth compared to the democrats, is to me more of a uh… showcase of “politicians for hire” all gunning for the divine light (and wallets) of mega corporate donors, lobbies and banks. Koch borthers, etc

By 2012 however, republicans on the wings of the right side’s big tent, especially libertarians, were getting fucking sick of “big government” (which would go on to being coopted by the republican establishment as a vapid slogan with no meaning as part of the equally coopted and astroturfed “tea party movement” to try and reel back in upset right wing voters) and rallied behind Ron Paul, who had a minor showing in 2008 but reemerged in 2012 for his consistency and appeal to youth and reformists in the republican party who were seeking alternatives to neocons and bible thumpers that led the USA into war in Iraq and had crashed the economy in 2007.

After the Bush era and following the organic appeal of and TRIUMPH of obama in 2008, the republican party was in shambles. This lend itself to a sort of chaos and desperate energy in the party that lasted for over 10 years. This is the sort of desperate energy that will embroil the democrat party for the next 4-8 years also.

By 2016, the establishment republicans, as the slowest bunch around, got fucking mollywhopped at the primaries because they were sO FUCKING OUT OF TOUCH they preordained Jeb Bush because “hes a bush…. and hes got a hispanic wife to appeal to them browns :DDD.” after  8 years of bush’s miserable presidency and two elections of the same miserable failure of the same boring, shitty politicians for hire, Trump finally had appeal that he didnt have when he ran in 2012 and people wanted to do more than just another bush. A bargain bin bush, at that.

That, coupled with the fury of libertarians who experienced the corrupt proceedings and media black outthat fucked Ron Paul out of the nomination in 2012, was the perfect conditions for Trump to carry onto a victory. Not to mention that it’s next to impossible for an american party to put a new guy into the oval office after they had a previous guy in there for 2 terms. Almost never happens. Even if hillary were a saint with actual working class appeal, it wouldve been a hard battle for her to get into the white house. Though by the looks of it, she put minimal effort into campaigning, so many its that too.

Not as in “All Republicans are clowns hurr durr” but that they always start with so many people while the Dems are lucky to get three. What did we have last year, like 12 across two stages?

i think it requires a sort of psychoanalysis of the right and left:

The right holds up individuality while the left endorses collectivism. I MEAN, as generalities of course. Alot more people on the right are going to jump at the chance to be a leader, because the right worships “pulling one up by the boot straps” and charting one’s own path while the left values how someone can serve and be a help to another more than helping themselves, so there’s reluctance to lead or take on the responsibility to chart a course.

Additionally i feel the democrat party is alot more uh

like, hamstrung by the appeal for conformity. People dont want to rock the boat as much as people do on the right wing. People on the left, especially high cultured and prudish liberal folk who form much of the party’s inner workings, are very pacifist and people on the radical fringe talk big about their ideals but in the end, also lean toward pacifism.

For example, Ron Paul refused to endorse any of the other candidates after he failed to grab the nomination or the nominee either. He took his fight to the convention itself. Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, capitulated before the convention and appealed for conformity and to rally behind the woman he previously had been roasting for being a corrupt puppet for the banks and military industrial complex.

So yeah

Also

I cant help but laugh, thinking of all the democrats who did a spectacular show of force to paint Ron Paul as a secret, evil racist with a secret platform of racism to undermine his appeal among the left and right alike because of convoluted news letters from decades prior that were published under his name… i mean, in light of Trump today, who is very openly and deliberately hostile to foreign people and arguably minorities in general with “bad hombre” and illegal mexican rapist rhetoric and such. Not to mention Trumps celebration of police in light of Black Lives Matter. Perhaps with hindsight now (as if they would ever stoop to doing so), these democrats can recognize that Ron Paul, who was a POPULAR republican who greatly decried police brutality, the prison industrial complex and how the justice system unfairly targets black americans, actually you know, wasnt such a bad guy anyway. Especially since the way the system crushed ron paul had turned all these libertarians into fervently anti-establishment right wingers who punched a vengeful YES vote for Trump as a FUCK YOU to republicans and democrats alike, upon recognizing the seething hatred the establishment had for Trump. But oh well, partisan sports team cheering and all that can incapacitate you and prevent you from seeing the Bigger Picture.

When people, such as myself, were holding up Ron Paul’s fate and warned the uncaring Democrats to ignore what happened to Ron Paul in 2012 at their own peril, as that they too will experience similar treatment in due time - they didn’t care. And sure enough, that time came for Bernie Sanders. And In his place came Hillary, a broadly hated and uncaptivating figurehead for the banks and the worst of washington DC. It was her, her “pied piper” strategy who helped elevate and send Trump into the white house.

White people didn’t elect trump, as stunned and ignorant progressives would cry, it was stupid political games of establishment liberals.

Ugh. I dont want to post this but I owe it to myself to be honest. 

I went almost three months totally clean, no b/p but the last three days wrecked me. I am going away with friends next weekend and I know we are going to spend time at the pool/jacuzzi and I am having so much anxiety it’s sad. 

This lead to over eating and then b/p on sweets. 

UGH. This just makes me hate myself MORE. Eating disorders are AWFUL

wahhhhhhh

(This one’s for @imagineham.)

Daveed knew it was bad because he could hear you crying.

99.9% of the time, when things went badly, he would find out after. Or because you’d finally gotten around to telling him. Or because he was there when whatever upset you occurred in the first place.

You knew from the start that seeing you hurt and/or crying broke him, so you always took extra steps to make sure he didn’t see. The fact that there was no sad playlist playing and that he could hear your sobbing clear as day? That scared the shit out of him.

He had come home early with Starbucks, knowing full well you were chasing a deadline. The last three weeks had been hectic and while he knew you understood that Ham was a lot of work–he wanted to be there for you and your crazy pile of schoolwork. Not to mention your family stuff.

Placing the cups and paper bag as quietly as possible on the counter, he slipped out of his shoes and went to your bedroom. There you were, engulfed in blankets and pillows, an unmistakable shaking lump of sobs.

He wanted to leap in and take you in his arms, but he knew that in your state it would probably startle you more than help. So he resorted to subtlety-turning the doorknob until it clicked and clearing his throat.

“Steph?” he said tentatively, moving towards the bed. “Baby, it’s me.”

You froze, curling up even more. You couldn’t stop the tears if you tried so you just let them flow, sniffling. You couldn’t bring yourself to speak just yet.

He sat on the edge of the bed, and when you didn’t move away he finally placed an arm around your huddled form. “Steph, it’s going to be okay. I’m here. Whatever it is, I’ll help you through it. Is it your dad about finding a job again? What happened?”

That makes you ease up a little. Slowly, you kick off the blanket and turn to face Daveed. He’s watching you closely like he’s protecting the most fragile thing in the world. Of all days he’s chosen today to wear the sweater you got him for your first Christmas together. “I…I…I c-can’t…” You relent and bury your face in his neck, crying all over again.

“Shhhh. You don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to. Just-just let me be here, okay?” he smiles, running a hand through your hair and holding you close. “We’ll just stay like this. I love you, Steph. I love you.”

Even with all the chaos in your head, you believe him. You cry yourself to sleep that night, and he hardly moves when your breath finally finds a steady rhythm. Instead, he shifts just enough to keep you entirely within his arms, kisses your temple, and falls right asleep next to you.

Tomorrow was a new day.

So it’s been quiet, huh?

Whoops! I haven’t been making too many posts on tumblr in regards to Soma Spirits: Rebalanace. And the reason for that is that there’s just really not a whole lot to show off right now.

Why? You might like the reason a bit more than you were expecting. Here’s the gist of it!

- The game has been in Beta for the last three weeks. That means all of the major additions to the game have been made and it is currently undergoing beta testing.
- A lot of the work that has been done on the game this past month has been technical, under-the-hood stuff.
- Most of the Steam-related stuff is finished. That’s right! The Steam version of the game will have Steam achievements and trading cards!
- Beta testing has been going very smoothly and most of the bugs have been text-related. Mostly just typos, grammatical errors, and other things here and there. There has been very little in the way of gameplay bugs.

In short, the new version of the game is almost done! I hope to have a release date announcement soon, so keep checking back periodically!

Book Review 14/52

For the curious, I really am reading this fast, I don’t have a backlog anymore

The Riddle of the Labyrinth: The Quest to Crack an Ancient Code by Margalit Fox

I spent this entire book squealing in joy oh my god

It’s about the three people who mainly translated Linear B, which was both definitely writing and definitely not related to any surviving writing making it a challenge to translate. The first was the man who discovered the tablets, the second was a woman who singlehandedly invented a method to translate a script of an unknown language, and the third was the man who, after her death, took her work and completed the translation.

I have absolutely no words for the labor of love involved in taking two thousand clay tablets, last understood by humans three thousand years ago, and turning them into something people today can understand and connect with.
