the materials are the same

German fan here and honestly I really hope some of the Ducktales team see your doodle comics! partly because it might give them a sense of how integrated Gladstone is in a lot of our childhoods and hearts in a much bigger sense than the Barks comics allow for- not that they are bad I adore his comics, but I fear they may be mistakenly limiting character potential due to loyalty

Oh gosh, thanks man I don’t know if they will/have or what I’d make of it if they did, but I do feel the same way. Carl Barks material is absolutely wonderful and I’ll not say a word against him or his stories, but I do agree that there could be a severe pitfall awaiting writers in not allowing for any evolution or emotional development of characters outside of his works. Having said that we don’t really know yet what the new Ducktales take is going to be on Gander or any of the characters, and while a cautious optimism may be best I don’t want to go anticipating it with a negative attitude. Right now I’m just expecting it to be ‘its own thing’, and whatever happens I’m excited for the new show and hope the team making it are having a good time!

Why do you think people are so..."picky" when it comes to the remakes? I mean, they are 'based off' the animation films. The same thing when movies are adapted from books. They said 'based off', yet people become extremely defensive and angry when it isn't exactly the same. Thoughts?

Nostalgia mainly. They see their favourite movie being turned in to something else that is unfamiliar to them. They’re comfortable with what they know and don’t want to see it changed. This applies to a lot of things - not just the Disney remakes. 

I honestly do not understand when people say a live action remake will “ruin” the original movie for them. They are two separate pieces of work based off the same source material. Like I’ve had people explain to me what they mean but I honestly can’t understand how it ruins the original. Like do you just never watch you favourite movie again? I don’t get it.

I think books to film are a little different because you have what you imagined in your head and see someone else’s interpretation of it. Versus you have the original movie and you know what the characters look and sound like and then someone else is taking that story you already know and changing it in to something else. So they are different but the same at once haha. Confusing I know. 


The ‘Passengers’ trailers are hiding the full, creepy story about manipulation and kidnapping

  • Going by the trailers, Passengers looks like an exhilarating and romantic space romp.
  • The promo materials make it appear Pratt and Lawrence’s characters wake up at the same time.
  • SPOILER ALERT: They don’t. Pratt’s characters wakes up first, is alone and desperate, stalks Lawrence on the ship’s computers, then wakes her up and lies to her about it.
  • Many critics and movie fans on Twitter are pointing out how creepy, manipulative and irredeemable this is. Read more

It seems that way, doesn’t it?

if ur being racist/misogynistic/ableist/transmisogynistic/etc. to troll… you are a racist/misogynist/ableist/transmisogynist/etc. There’s literally no difference. The material consequences are exactly the same. It still upholds structural oppression, it still harms oppressed groups of people, it still incites aggression in people who don’t hide under the guise of trolling … you are on their side. You are them and you encourage them.

How to take notes from a textbook

Knowing what to and what not to write down from a textbook is a often an issue when studying. Should I include this or is that completely necessary? Hopefully these few tips will help anyone struggle to use their textbook!

  • Read the textbook prior to taking notes - This helps give you a solid understanding of the material so you can summarise and shorten your notes. Have a good understanding is great to help shorten your notes, since you can avoid copying the menial information.
  • Highlight some key points, terms and concepts before taking notes - Remember not to over-highlight, keep it brief and minimal; key words, facts, and statistics!
  • Have a colour coding system - This helps to visualise your notes when trying to memorise information and also makes your notes more effective material to learn from. Making sure you’re using the same colours for highlighting your textbook and writing your notes. My colour coding system can be found here.
  • Use the layout of the textbook to organise your notes - I found copying the headings and subheadings really helped simplify and ensure I was learning each section. It’s much easy to find information when you’re skimming through notes. This also ensures that you can remember what topic areas relate to others, meaning you can add more into your essays under exam conditions!
  • Include different ways to show the information - Use mindmaps, bullet points, graphs, flow chats, and post-it notes to help visualise the content. Breaking up your notes with graphics is a good way to avoid full pages of writing and great for memorising statistics or key elements of a topic.
  • Supplement your notes - Use other textbooks and your own research to expand the depth of your notes. This is highly important for subjects that can require evidence, statistics and evaluations. Making sure this information is embedded into your notes is great for writing essays.
  • Add your own personal touch - Add doodles, acronyms, and abbreviations to help your study. Little things that make important information unique and standout will help you recall it later!
  • Summarise each chapter - Make a final summary of each chapter using sticky notes or flash cards. Once you’ve read your textbook, you’ll have a collection of chapter summaries ready to study from.

Each of these tips have helped me recreate notes that are well-rounded and full of brief but useful information. I hope this information helps. Let me know if it does! 

I love how Polnareff and Kakyoin’s designs are slightly different when they’re under DIO’s influence like Polnareff has these horn-shaped strands of hair and Kakyoin has these weird bangs over his forehead

plus they both have these accessories that seem made from the same material?

so I just imagine DIO taking a look at them when they first met and being like “no no no you don’t look evil enough, lemme just fix your hair for you and here, have these neat accessories that will make you look evil and stylish"

I just wonder…why don’t people believe in astrology. Astrology is literally the study of stars and how the planets intertwine. Us humans are made of the same materials as stars. It wouldn’t be a mere coincidence if we somehow develop traits based off the alignment of stars and planets. It’s a science for a reason. It involves logic and critical thinking. Astrology should be used as a guide. We are the same as stars.

again ain’t no material difference between ironic bigotry and actual bigotry when yalls spouting the same exact shit to the same exact audiences. you think the audience that agrees with the bigotry unironically is gonna differentiate between ironic and serious bigotry? they aint, they just gonna hear the bigotry and think they have more support, while you give them more speaking platforms to spread their ideology.

Little things Harry would do to make Valentine’s Day special

Spend hours thinking of just the right words to put in your card, crafting the perfect way to explain how much you mean to him.

Insist on taking photos as you open your gifts. And when you protest, saying you’re still in your pajamas, he replies, “Gotta have summat to show our future children, love.”

Buy you a dress in the same shade of baby pink made of the same silky material as your favorite shirt of his. Not so that you’ll stop wearing his, god no; he loves coming home and finding you draped in his shirt, soft legs peaking out from the hem. He loves you in it so much he wants to see all the ways a dress of the same kind would flatter you.

Follow you around, gyrating and singing, as you get ready for the day, pleading with you to sing along. And when you finally let him take your hand, he spins you in a circle, crooning, “Girl, you know I want your love. Your love was handmade for somebody like me.”

And another lovely scene by @panda-capuccino for the lovely Reylux work “Codega”. 


Kylo Ren stopped in front of her and gave her a once-over from toes to head. She could not see his eyes, but she could feel them silently assessing her and her readiness. She barely stopped herself from fidgeting with her clothes under his gaze. She was wearing her black training leggings and long undershirt, but had topped the ensemble off with a sleeveless tunic made of what seemed to be the same material as Kylo’s robe; the material was thick and would stand up well against a number of different weapons. A leather belt rounded out the ensemble, on which her lightsaber was clipped. On the other side was clipped an expandable quarterstaff, and a thigh holster on her right leg held a blaster pistol. She hadn’t exactly been sure which weapons would be appropriate, and so had tracked Asha Ren down in the armory just under an hour ago. The quarterstaff and pistol had been the Knight’s idea, and Rey had to admit that she felt comfortable with their use. She had not practiced much with her lightsaber, but she trusted her Master to not leader her into any situation where she could not handle herself with one or the other of her weapons.

“Good, you are prepared adequately,” he stated after he had finished raking his eyes over her. Rey shivered with a mixture of pride and that feeling she got every time she saw him in his mask; she wasn’t sure she’d ever get used to hearing him speak through the blasted thing. “I have something for you,” he added after another moment. He motioned for her to follow him through the hangar doors, across the hangar, and up the ramp into his shuttle. Reaching down for something on one of the jump seats, he directed her to turn around with a twist of his fingers.

Rey felt him crowd behind her, towering over her form as he draped a fold of cloth across the front of her neck and over her shoulders. His gloved hands deftly adjusted the fabric and Rey heard the click of a pin locking in place on each of her shoulders. He gripped her by the shoulders once he was done, but didn’t make a move to turn her around. Rey was glad for the emptiness of the vessel, as she could feel her cheeks redden and her breaths were coming quicker. She could feel him behind her, even though there was likely a foot of space between their bodies, and she was overly aware of their only point of contact through her layers of clothes and his gloves.

Here we are one more week with episode 5! For the record: I’m not ready. I have zero knowledge of Japanese regionals (in fact, I only learned about their existence when I watched episode 4), so let’s see what I can learn!
