the life and times of nina

after this rough patch the rest of the year is going to be good !! it will be me and ninas first anniversary, we hav rwby v5 and smo to enjoy together, i lost friends but i made a lot of new ones too, and the ones i lost are out of my life so theres nothing i can change and no reason to be hurt by what they do because they cant hurt me unless i let them, things will look up for nina with time and she has lab tests and stuff and then well know, ummmmm blaze will be okay for a while longer since her meds keep her out of pain, thats a challenge for another time and there will be more challenges to come but those will get resolved too bc no problem is insurmountable 

How can y'all be saying season 9 is bad when it's given us so much already???

- Lady Gaga as a guest judge, who came into the werkroom as a drag queen version of herself
- Lady Gaga giving the queens a crash course in Untucked
- “nina bonina fell on the sofina”
- The first queen to Shangela since Shangela (Cynthia Lee Fontaine)
- “What is a bloomer? It sounds disgusting.”
- “Stoning is for ugly girls.”
- “i’m hungry and tired and thirsty and i’m, like, having anxiety right now”
-“what’s an adjective?”
- “Eureka can you shut up for a second?”
- “You’re beautiful you’re perfect you look like Linda Evangelista you’re a model”
- Aja’s lip sync to “Holding Out for a Hero”
- Sasha and Shea eating chocolate out of a “stalk of broccoli” together
- Sasha and Shea’s subsequent friendship as a result
- “I call shade”
- “NO YOURE DONE AND IMMA TELL YOU WHY YOURE DONE”
- Nina holding her titty while Eureka and Trinity argue
- The first queen to die on-screen since Tammie Brown (Charlie Hides)
- “someone for the first time in my life told me I wore too much highlighter”
- Alexis blaming the other queens for her own bad choices
- Farrah’s crying noises
- Cynthia’s eulogy to the chair
- The first queen to be honorably discharged (Eureka)
And there’s so much more of season 9 left for even more gems like these.

It was chaos. Chaos of her making. 

I did this, she thought wonderingly. I commanded those corpses, those bits of bone, those dying cells. What did that make her? If any Grisha had ever had such a power, she’d never heard of it. What would the other Grisha think of her? Her fellow Corporalki, the Heartrenders and Healers? We are tied to the power of creation itself, the making at the heart of the world. Maybe she should feel ashamed, maybe even frightened. But she hadn’t been made for shame. 

Perhaps Djel extinguished one light and lit another. Nina didn’t care if it was Djel or the Saints or a brigade of fire-breathing kittens; as she hurried east, she realized that, for the first time in ages, she felt strong. Her breath came easy, the ache in her muscles had dimmed. She was ravenous. The craving for parem felt distant, like a memory of real hunger. 

Nina had grieved for her loss of power, for the connection she’d felt to the living world. She’d resented this shadow gift. It had seemed like a sham, a punishment. But just as surely as life connected everything, so did death. It was that endless, fast-running river. She’d dipped her fingers into its current, held the eddy of its power in her hand. She was the Queen of Mourning, and in its depths, she would never drown.

Charinina family on a trip
They left Anatea for good and settled into the dragon village

I’m already on my way sketching the little baby dragons in children form btw
They may be more than four oops!

Anatea’s new king and queen here!

six of crows characters + cooking

kaz: could probably cook if it came down to that or starving, prefers to stare judgementally while everyone else tries and fails

inej: can manage fine when she has a recipe to follow but isn’t that bothered so will normally just make whatever’s quickest and easiest

nina: cannot cook, is forbidden to go anywhere near the kitchen when food’s being prepared, manages to sneak pieces of food out anyway

matthias: everything he makes tastes like burned cardboard except, for some reason, desserts.  this boy is a baking prodigy.  no-one understands it

jesper: would actually be quite good if he’d only follow the damn recipe but who wants to do that?  also banned from going near the kitchen after that time he and nina tried to make dinner and nobody’s allowed to mention it

wylan: tries his best but can’t cook to save his life.  has set something on fire more than once.  

kuwei: is actually good at cooking but would rather sit quietly and watch the disaster that is everyone else in the kitchen instead of helping

My Take On SnB:VS Episode 13 Pure ChariNina trash here, also long. VERY LONG. I MEAN VERY.

I can’t. For the love of me I can’t. I literally screamed my head off this episode. Girl at first I was like: aw hell, I need to get my sht together and analyze this episode because this is gonna be a gruesome fight.

And then this beautiful thing happened

And thus I knew I was fkced. Screw the analyzation of the intense fight and let’s fangirl about all of this beauty that’s being fed to us by Kami himself. (Also can we appreciate how they hold on to each other when Charioce caught Nina?)

So here’s my take on EVERYTHING THAT JUST HAPPENED.

First up, I love this. It’s so perfect, so sweet I died. I know it’s not that much, I mean he just caught Nina and IS JUST HOLDING HER OH SO GENTLY AND PROTECTIVELY. Not a big deal right? 

Second up, ooh nuuuuuu baby Chari your eye TT-TT

(Hold up, lemme fangirl at the way he looks at Nina. So what if I’m making a big deal out of everything? I mean I can see an undertone of worry in his look. Still though, your eye Chari.)

*Nina regains consciousness and fangirls at the beauty in front of her*

*Charioce noticing Nina’s awake and smiles at her fangirliness making me fangirl even more*

YES BABY NINA, BABY CHARI’S EYE OH NUUUUUUUHHHH

*omg*

*FKNG DIES* *FANGIRLS IN DEATH* NINA PUT THIS IN YO DAMN MIND THAT HE’S LOOKING AT YOU. I KNOW THIS ISN’T SOMETHING I SHOULD MAKE A BIG DEAL OF AND PEOPLE ARE GONNA SAY HE’S JUST STATING THE OBVIOUS BUT THIS IS CHARIOCE. I SEE A HINT OF SOMETHING UNDERNEATH AND YOU AINT TELLING ME OTHERWISE.

Now here we have Nina looking at Charioce with a pout while blushing.

*When bae did something wrong but you still love him*

*Arguing with bae*

SHT MY HEART. This is the second time Charioce’s asked Nina this and now I can definitely say he aint saying it to mock her! Plus, Chari looks like he’s a child who wants candy and just can’t stop asking for it.

*When you in an argument and bae just smiles like prince charming up at you while kneeling in front of you*

Inner Nina: CALM YO SELF WOMAN. YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE MAD AT HIM, NOT FALL IN LOVE EVEN MORE. CALM YO FKNG HEART. DON’T TURN INTO A DRAGON. DO. NOT. I REPEAT. DO. FKNG. NOT.

Okay okay, something more serious now.

I can’t help but feel happy to know that even though Nina knows the situation she’s in she still trusts that Charioce will help her, I mean really, Nina knows Charioce is the source of all of this and yet she still trusts that Chari will help her,

See? Even Chari is confused/shocked by this.

He’s even more shocked when she does this. (Just open your arms and catch her darling) Also, I really liked that in this scene Chari’s first instinct was to grab his sword but stopped and opened his arms to catch her. *faints*

Me during this: Nina, chill.

Still me: Nina, chill! Charioce is shooketh!

Chari is shooketh x 3. (Still, I aint complaining with what Nina is asking huehuehue)

Somewhere deep in Charioce’s head: Is she serious?

Somewhere deep in Nina’s head: Yes I’m serious

Me: Oh.

Me: OOOOOOOAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Admit it! I aint the only btch that thought instead of a hug Chari was going to kiss her.

That hug though, such intensity. It’s as if the entire world stopped for a minute to appreciate how perfect they are.

I have no idea how many timed I’ve died today.

Lemme be honest, when Nina told Chari to hug her I really was thinking that he was only going to hug her while Nina stays frozen in her spot encircled in Charioce’s arms. I didn’t expect her to encircle her arms around his neck and hug him back!

Also, Chari hugging Nina like she’s the most precious thing in this entire world gave me life. LIFE I TELL YOU, LIFE! I mean just look at that peaceful smile, it’s a smile of a person who believes that at that moment everything is perfect.

*When ya girl turns into a dragon. Literally.* Charioce is shooked.

*Timeskip to after Nina’s brutal and badass fight* Charioce is still shookethed.

How to fall in love with a dragon.

Cute head tilting dragon Nina is cute.

How to fall in love with a dragon 2: Getting closer.

I don’t know why but Charioce looking up at Nina like this just gives me a peek at Charioces’s emotion depth. Like it’s so deep you can’t see it.

Me: Aww.

Me: Wait, what?

Me: … *waits expectantly*

Me: OMG

Me: AWWW OMG HE TOOK OFF HIS GLOVE TO TOUCH HER.

OMG. His touch turned her into a dragon and it was his touch that turned her back.

Charioce is shookethed.

Charioce is shookethed and mezmerized all the the same time.

Charioce looking worriedly at Nina. I can’t, I just can’t.

*timeskip to after Rita and Jeanne take Nina away.*

Ah one last final glance because Chari knows he won’t be seeing Nina for a couple more episodes.

Overall all this damn episode gave me a rollercoaster of feelings that I will be willing to ride again in the future. I love these two to death and will definitely keep on rooting for them. This episode just confirmed so much for me that I’m willing to die for Charioce and Nina.

Well this ends my long a** post, I hope you enjoyed because I made this in a span of like an hour or two. Feel free to reblog or comment!

anonymous asked:

So SCrs have a post comparing 3x07 with 8x10 and saying that Elena made everything about her, about Stefan feeling anything or he'd lose her, but Caroline makes it about him regardless of their relationship... I know you didn't watch the episode, but what do you think?

I watched that scene and here is where context comes into play.

In 3x01 we learn that Elena has been searching for Stefan all summer, like literally for two or three months basically all she’s been doing is chasing leads.

and she’s been fighting everyone about searching for him:

and in 3x02 she faces werewolves for him:

In 3x03 she hid in a murder closet while Klaus the Original Vampire who thinks she’s dead, is right outside so she can see Stefan and bring him home:

and then Stefan breaks up with her after all of that:

and then in 3x05 she is hit by Klaus:

she watches Stefan tear apart her classmates:

and she’s still there like:

telling him to fight and he just needs to want it bad enough and he’s compelled to bite her which puts her in the hospital:

but in 3x06 she’s right there like:

and then 3x07 comes around and before that moment that the SCers are comparing to 8x10, Elena spends the day learning from Lexi on how to get through to Stefan, it’s about her methods and the things you have to do to get him to feel again:

She watches him suffer, listens to him talk about how he wished her never met her and she just has to take it , like it’s exhausting being there and going through that while at the same time her brother is cheating on her best friend with a ghost, Klaus is trying to make hybrids, like the world is coming apart at the seams and she’s needed elsewhere so she goes where she’s needed and Stefan asks her if she’s giving up, the one person who has been his cheerleader, who has been relentless in getting him back, who has been there no matter how hard he’s tried to push her away:

and she says:

Like no, I’m still here, I’m still your cheerleader, I’m still stubborn and she also says:

which is fair because she’s done everything, she’s risked her life for him, she brought his dead best friend to help her get through to him, tortured him, pleaded with him, but he needs to want it too, which is a line very much about him as is this:

and this line:

is an appeal to his humanity which makes absolute sense because it has been established and re-established that his humanity is directly linked to Elena.

In 3x01, she’s the one he calls, not Damon, not Caroline, it’s Elena:

In 3x05 he freaks out when Klaus hits her:

he told her she was what kept him from giving up:

Klaus marvels at the love he has for her:

and he fights compulsion for her:

So why wouldn’t Elena appeal to his humanity by threatening to give up on him? After everything she’s done for him why wouldn’t she realize that she’s spent so much of her time and been consumed with getting him back?

When 8x10 rolls around, what has Caroline done for Stefan by that point? Nothing. She’s talked at him.

In 8x08 they haven’t even interacted, she hasn’t been searching for any plans or any methods to help him out of his deal.

In 8x09 she talks at Damon about Elena and dances with him then talks at Stefan then stakes Stefan and throws a ring at him.

In 8x10 she manages to get him chained up and talks at him some more:

She didn’t risk her life for him, she hasn’t spent months searching for him, she’s a vampire so she has eternity on her side while Elena was a human who was being hunted by original vampires, Caroline is just getting started when Elena was invested by the time 3x07 rolled around. They are in two very different places and frankly Elena and Caroline mean two very different things to Stefan. Give me 3x07 over 8x10 any day.

anyone wanna talk abt how nina and kuwei absolutely remain close friends to this day and visit each other in ravka regularly because i know in my heart this is true

  • nina gets what it’s like to be on your own in a foreign country trying to accomplish a seemingly-impossible task, and having her check in every so often is a huge help for kuwei settling into his new life there
  • they’re the most multilingual of all their friends and bond over this.  nina doesn’t get many opportunities to practice shu even though she speaks it fluently, and although kuwei speaks passable ravkan, he improves a lot faster from speaking to nina without the added pressure of having to do anything other than talk.
  • both of them religiously pick up bits of gossip and remember all of it and have at least an hour sharing all of it every time they meet (mostly nina.  kuwei likes keeping things to himself so he can use it if he ever has to.  but sometimes he’ll tell her something and nina’s eyes go wide because there’s no way kuwei should know that.)  between the two of them, they know what’s going on with everyone at any given time and have also been known to discuss this in earshot of whoever they’re talking about by switching languages so nobody can prove it
  • when inej comes to visit nina, the three of them go for waffles.  afterwards, inej and nina take turns teaching each other the rowdiest sea shanties they know and kuwei looks on with a mixture of confusion, amusement, and horror, because neither of them can carry a tune and there are some lyrics he wishes he didn’t understand.  (he’s totally memorising them for later, though.)  they’re so happy and enthusiastic about it that after a while it’s hard not to give up and laugh
  • both of them also know what it’s like to lose someone you care about and to have to move on and make a life for yourself regardless.  it’s not something either of them talks about a lot but sometimes, a good number of years in the future, they will.  nina tells him about matthias, about the future they were going to make together and how they were going to change the world.  the work she’s still trying to do on her own.  the promise she made to try and help the younger drüskelle who could become something more, like matthias did.  kuwei doesn’t need to say a lot to that, mostly just listens, but he’s seen how much nina’s accomplished in the years since the ice court job and matthias’ death and all of the good she’s done.  
  • he especially doesn’t have a lot to say about his life before fjerda and ketterdam, not a lot of it is things he wants to remember, but he was close with his father even if their relationship wasn’t perfect and sometimes there’s something to say about that.  about how it might have been better for the world if it was his father who survived shu han, how kuwei could have done something to help them escape if it wouldn’t have exposed him as a grisha to the fjerdans.  i could have brought matthias back, nina says quietly.  i almost did.  sometimes letting go is better.  
  • the potential with these two is honestly so underrated and i feel like we as people need to talk about it more

bonus:

  • nina: wake up, i have a huuuuge dilemma i need your opinion on!  
  • kuwei: what?  
  • nina: am i more beautiful today than i was yesterday?  i mean at first i looked in the mirror and i thought well, yes, definitely, huge improvement–  
  • kuwei: can i have my pillow back?  
  • nina: –but then i thought maybe it’s not that i’m more beautiful today, maybe i was just as beautiful yesterday but i lacked the self-esteem to recognise it!  
  • kuwei: don’t take this personally but get out
