The first season hooked me up. the second one made meworship and love it. Seriously what a magnificent anime
Reason to whatch it:
This is a little masterpiece, You don’t really need more than this lol
Great and unprecditable drama
Best opening I’ve seen in a while. One of my all time favorite op
The feels are real and will et you alive
PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GO WHATCH THIS
3-gatsu no Lion
This anime once again proved me that underrated anime are the best. This anime strugges are so real that it just breaks your heart. Once again umino chika (Hachimitsu to clover) lived up to her name
Reason to whatch it:
Rei. One of the best devolved protagonist I’ve seen
His problems are so deep and real you can’t help to cheer for him
Great side characters and charachter devolpment
Great balance betwen comedy/seriousness/sad scenes
Come for the charachters and stay for the feels
Hands down to one of the most beatiful shonen’s ever made. You don’t need the sad past from the 1 episode to pity the charachters . Afer 400 episodes is more epic
As the precedent arc Gintama was the anime that made me laugh and cry more than everything. The great balance between commedy and serious scenes is what makes gintama so special.
You don’t need reasons to go and whatch this. Just do it , you will thank me later. It’s probably better than any overated shonen anime like one piece ( yeah I said one piece) , Fairy tale, and even Naruto which I love with all my hear.
-My favorite part of the season was about zura’s bacstory and fight scene. I already loved him but the deepness sorachi added to him left me spechless.
If you’re asking ‘was sasuke in love with sakura’ in the romantically smitten sense of the term, then my short answer is: No, he was not. The longer answer would be: it’s complicated, but not hard to see or understand.
One thing that is important to remember is that Sasuke as a character has some of the most complicated relationships in the entire series; this was what gave us the giant plot twist that was Itachi, this was what gave us his intense relationship with his dad, and that was what made his feelings towards naruto come off a lot more complicated than that of naruto’s towards him. Let’s break this down.
Did Sasuke love Sakura? Yes, Sakura was, and still is, in fact one of Sasukes most precious bonds. He cared about her a great deal; so much so that he was willing to kill in the forest of death, going against his morals, as well as die for her to escape in the Gaara fight which would have meant he’d have to kiss his revenge (what he views to be the sole reason for his existence) goodbye. There are various scenes where sasuke shows how far his feelings towards Sakura (and team 7 in general) run. To list a few:
But he was not in love with her?
No. Sasuke had far more heavy things weighing on his mind to sit down and dissect the nature of his feelings towards team7, and hell, later on had hate clouding his every move. The first time he did do that was in chapter 698 when he was free of his hatred and given a chance to think clearly and put some dots together. But when his character arc includes and focuses on things such as
It really becomes no wonder that Sasuke just did notallowhimself to indulge in a ‘fantasy’ that includes him being happy and healing with team 7
It wasn’t that sasuke didn’t have feelings for team 7. He himself was aware of the bonds they share and how much they affected him, and he himself was aware of the romantic context of the relationship between him and Sakura. It was more like him taking those feelings and pushing them aside as to not dwell on them.
sasuke @ feelings
bc feelings made him go like this
Given a different circumstance however i have 0 doubt in my mind that sasuke would have fallen for sakura quite quickly. Why am I sure? To answer that question we will have to ask a different question.
What was the context of their relationship?
The scenes they share are mostly romantic in nature. Sakura was always the only girl that could get a reaction out of sasuke by doing something lovey dovey, he always had a softer spot for her and treated her marginally better than he did most people
My favorite is definitely the one where sasuke winked, it gives a little glimpse of what they must be like married
just scenes like this showing them having chemistry and wanting to be around each other make me 100% sure sasuke would have had a huge crush on her given different luck in life
but noOoo, you CanT cATch mE fEElingS
So, when was he ready to ~play at romance~?
The first time he really wanted to regain her as a part of his life was when he apologized, i’d say that was a moment when he realized how much he wanted to do in order to keep the people who mattered to him close. We aren’t really given much about the blank period but i’m assuming they were rekindling the bonds they shared and that was when sasuke wanted to give romance a shot, after he felt redeemed enough to indulge in such aspects of life, and after he understood the world without burdens clouding his eyes. This is a very mature move in my opinion, they both deserve a happiness they can both fully enjoy without personal issues weighing heavy on them. Hence the famous ‘i’ll see you when i’m back’ forehead poke. It’s intimate and romantic enough to signify something will happen in the future, but it’s not a make out session since it’s not quite right now. It’s honestly very sasuke.
He’s in love now, but when did he fall in love?
Definitely when they traveled but it’s up to your own hc to imagine how it happened. I’d say during their travels the chemistry they once shared flows with a lot more ease; they talk a lot more, impress each other with their strengths, share things about each other, have moments with each other that allow sasuke to experience what romantic love and being smitten with someone feels like and boom, he’s like ‘I think I want to marry this girl?’
Keeping with the The Office theme i’d say it was a moment like this when he realized yeah let’s get married you make me very happy
because c’mon let’s be real, they’re a pair of dorks.
One of the most important lessons you can learn in life is the difference between giving up and letting go. It’s the difference between running away because you’re scared and walking away for you own good, and the sooner you learn this, the better off you will be.
Learn to stop running and start walking.
The frightened and the helpless run… but those who are empowered and in control of their own lives are never afraid to walk away from a hopeless situation.
So learn to walk away.
Walk away from anything that no longer serves you or enriches you. Walk away from anything that hurts you, degrades you or causes you harm. Walk away from the things that cause you to hate and most important of all… walk away from anything that causes you to hate yourself.
Because life is short… and opportunities are gone in what feels like the blink of an eye – so take control. Never give up on something that’s worth fighting for. Take life by the reins and steer it in the direction you want it to go… But at the same time learn to recognize when something is a lost cause and let it go. It’s your life and the greatest lesson you can learn is to walk away from anything that’s wasting it because it’s the most precious gift you’ll ever be given… and you only get one.
Befriending my body the way it actually is, and not the way I wanted it to be, was the most important act of self-love. I stopped being overly critical with myself and learned seeing my body for all its miraculous functions and abilities, and in exchange I was blessed to experience the most precious love story. This love story isn’t relying on outer influences and factors. It’s a love story between me and the only person I will spend the rest of my life with for sure: myself. I will continue to work on deepening this loving relationship for the rest of my life. When I stopped hating my body, I was rewarded with a peace of mind that I wish everyone around me to experience as well.
sometimes I’m drowning in pain because I take for granted how far I came. I need to remind myself of this fact more often
do you ever think about how when even was manic he said 'we're so going to get married' and then when he was depressed he said 'in another universe we're together for all eternity' and cry
I cry more about what that turned into actually??? They started off talking on such a grand scale, “man of my life” and “married” and “eternity”, and while that might be romantic… I feel like that didn’t serve Even particularly well? If you’re living life as a film, you might make the big gesture and let the curtain fall. If you’re living life thinking of all the parallel universes, you can comfort yourself that one of them is getting it ‘right’. What I really loved about season three was that it wasn’t too precious about anything, Isak and Even enjoyed all the talk about the infinite and du er mannen i mitt liv but it wasn’t what ended up actually meaning the most to them.
What wound up being the most important thing was you and me and this bed and now. And then ‘move in with me because I want you and your dirty socks and your elbow next to mine on the kitchen table’. The everyday, every day. The “now” means more to me than any hypothetical forever and they’re giving everything they could right at this minute. That’s what gets me more than anything with them, seeing them take such good care of each other because they aren’t counting on anything else. Because life is…
Oikawa and Iwaizumi holds a joined bachelor party before their wedding (same-sex marriage is not legalized yet, but they decide to do it anyway.)
It’s a small party between their shared close friends in Seijou and in college.
Oikawa has gotten his third drink when he announces he has a song for his beloved Iwa-chan and starts singing Best Friend by Jason Mraz to Iwaizumi.
Everyone’s laughing and clapping for Oikawa’s singing when Iwaizumi, who may or may not have had his fifth drink at the moment, gets too overwhelmed and starts crying, saying he doesn’t want to get married, instead he wants to stay together with his best friend because he loves his best friend so much.
They end up in a cuddly pile, promising each other that they won’t abandon the other for “just a husband.”
Iwaizumi’s content smile after receiving Oikawa’s promise is the only reason that their group of friends don’t have the video uploaded on social media.
Oikawa breaks his promise the following morning by abandoning Iwa in Kuroo’s and Bokuto’s hands and goes get ready with his sister’s help.
Iwa survives because of his gorgeous genes (and actual helps from Kuroo with his hair) and still says yes to Tooru to become his husband.
Can we please talk about Magnus in the opening credits of Shadowhunters 2x11?
When Clary introduces the main characters of the show, the people she “can count on”, she says 1) the name of the person and 2) the most important things we must know about the said person, 3) all while we see scenes showing/exemplifying those things.
Then, we have:
1) Simon, 2) oldest friend and vampire, while 3) we see scenes of Simon and Clary hugging and laughing together.
1) Luke, 2) werewolf pack leader and New York city cop, while 3) we see scenes of Luke’s green eyes, his transformation to a werewolf and his work as a police.
1) Jace, Izzy and Alec, 2) three of the bravest shadowhunters alive, while 3) we see scenes of them in the battlefield.
But then again, what do we see when Clary introduces Magnus?
1) Magnus, 2) warlock from Brooklyn, while 3) we see scenes of Magnus doing magic, fighing against Iris…
… And Magnus with Alec. Magnus and Alec in front of each other, Alec looking to where Magnus’ lips are and then softly averting his gaze, Magnus looking at Alec like he’s the most precious thing in the entire world.
(Actually, I think we can perfectly recognize this scene. Is the scene after their first date, when Alec had just kissed Magnus, right after they both admitted that they didn’t care about the other’s past relationships, or the lack of them.)
Do you get it? In this moment, we are supposed to see the most important things about Magnus. And we see magic, fighting power… And Alec.
Alec is one of the most important things about Magnus. The one we need to know about, if we want to know who Magnus is.
Alec is one of the most important things for Magnus.
10 Reasons Why You Don’t Need To Care What Other People Say, Think or Do
1. It’s your life - no one else is living in your head. They are not living in the same headspace as us and therefore have no context on what we’ve been through, where we’re going and why we behave the way we do.
2. Projections - how you see me has nothing to do with me and everything to do with you. Often times the opinions of others are projections of their own beliefs, for example if someone tells you not to be an author because “you can’t make it” - this is a reflection of how they see themselves.
3. Judgements - you’re not on trial. Others may question our actions or judge our lifestyles because they want us to justify why we behave the way we do. We are not under any obligation to anyone to explain ourselves, therefore these judgements are meaningless and often a reflection of someone else’s insecurity.
4. Opinions - they only have the value we assign to them. If we were to take someone’s opinion down to the bank and ask the teller if we could pay our phone bill with it they would look at us as though we’re crazy. Keep this in mind next time someone offers their opinion.
5. Haters - they can’t stop your shine. A hater is just a confused fan because they’re giving us their energy by paying so much attention to what we’re doing. The important thing to acknowledge here is that they are expressing their admiration for us in a disguised way.
6. One life - you’re not going to be here for long, might as well enjoy it. Life’s too short to spend it worrying about what other people say or think about us - as long as we’re enjoying our time here nothing else matters.
7. Self-love - the way you see yourself is more important than anything else. The opinion we hold of ourselves is the most important opinion of all because this is where our self-esteem comes from. When we love ourselves unconditionally we can hold our heads up high regardless of what others say, think or do.
8. Time - the time you spend worrying about what others think could be spent enjoying yourself. Time is the most precious asset we have, it’s more valuable than money because we can’t buy more time - hence why we need to be careful of how we spend our time. When we see our time as an asset to be invested we can spend it in ways that serve us rather than wasting it.
9. Focus - whatever you focus on grows. Paying attention to anything increases the power or influence it has in our lives - when we starve others of the attention they seek to gain from us they will eventually filter out of our lives.
10. Authenticity - behaving in a certain way for others makes us their prisoner. Doing what makes us feel good and being unapologetic about it is the way to absolute freedom and peace of mind - this is why it’s so important for us to prioritise how we feel rather than pandering to the expectations of others with the intention of receiving their validation.
How you see me has nothing to do with me and everything to do with you.
Pace yourself with the scenarios and reactions okay? But i want to request Monsta X as werewolves, 🐕 since you have a lot of vampires. 🦇
I will, thank you for the concern! This is my first werewolf!au and I LOVE au’s so this was so much fun to write :D I hope you enjoy this and have a lovely day, anon! ~
You were convinced he hated you at first,, He would often stare you down, or avoid you, or leave if you entered a room. As the newest to the group, you often wondered why you were let in when the leader didn’t even like you
Frustrated, you vented your feelings to Minhyuk while you were partnered up for a task. He laughed at your worries; “He doesn’t hate you! It’s actually the opposite - He thinks you’re so beautiful that he can’t stand to be around you!”
With this new info in mind, you start to test Minhyuk’s confession. You showed more skin, would frequently corner Shownu to “ask” him something, often brushing against him
While working with Minhyuk, he vented about you. “I’m loosing my mind! I can’t think straight anymore!” and with a meek voice, Minhyuk admitted that he might have told you about his crush
Now aware of your game, Shownu teased you back
And this back and forth flirtation resulted in a relationship … after a night of passion
With mating season drawing near, the leader had locked himself away, afraid of loosing all control and taking you on the ground, with everyone around
But knowing his reason, you “visited” him and helped relieve his stress
So yeah,, basically, he’s the pack Dad and you’re the pack Mom (regardless of the gender you identify with)
Kind of a fuckboy but a nice one, does that make sense?? He has a big heart and wants to share it with everyone, male or female, human or werewolf
That’s why it’s no surprise when he ends up in your bed one night, not caring that you were human. What is surprising, however, is when he wakes up to see you gone, a note stuck to his forehead: ‘I’m out. Be gone before I’m back.’ The cold tone cracks his heart. He’s not used to being left, usually being the one to leave
He can’t get you out of his mind so after a few weeks, he tracks you down again
“I’m that good that you sniffed me out again?” you tease but he doesn’t laugh
He looks very serious, stood on your doorstep with a single rose in hand. “That’s not why I came back. I want to know … Can I take you out to dinner?”
You humour him, more so looking for a casual fling. But Hoseok surprises you that under that handsome man, is the biggest sweetheart you’ve ever met
Although neither of you make it official, you know your hearts belong to each other
Not really a werewolf, more of a werepuppy
He’s in charge of easing newbies into the pack and entertaining the kiddies while the adults do work
It was when he was younger, only a teen, that an orphaned wolf was put into his care. You weren’t much younger than him, so the bond never became anything fatherly. And he was too playful to be taken seriously anyway. He was more of like a close best friend, who also happened to be your guardian
Minhyuk took care of you diligently, often bringing you back pretty stones or other things he’d found while hunting. An almost perfect condition wrist watch was one of his greatest finds and you treasured it
So when you got into a fight with a fellow wolf, who smashed it, you saw red. After nearly killing her, Shownu was on bad terms with you. You almost were kicked out of the pack. But when Minhyuk found out why you had flipped, he fought to keep you
And now you were even more indebted to him
Minhyuk felt bad about the incident, often bringing the girl you fought medicine to help her recover. This annoyed you to no end and you often tried to stop him visiting her
“Why??” he asked eventually. “Don’t you want her to live?”
“No,” you admit, the blood rushing to your cheeks. “She broke my second most precious thing and is going to take my most precious thing away.”
“Your second most precious thing is that pocket watch I found you, right? So what’s your most important thing?”
Shyly, you buried your blushing face into his chest. And he grinned from ear to ear
“So cute!! You love me?! Why didn’t you tell me before?! I love you too!”
Was sent on a task to track down a human. He was told that they held important information about the wolf world that they shouldn’t know
Eventually he found you, working at a bookstore in town. You looked harmless, stacking books, but an order was an order
He kidnapped you as you walked home that night, done with your shift. And interrogated you. Except it wasn’t much of an interrogation. You were terrified, shaking like a leaf; “I don’t know anything! I seen a boy turn into a wolf and that’s it!” Your heart doesn’t falter so he knows it’s the truth
But he can’t let you leave. You didn’t know as much as Shownu thought, but knowing was all it took to warrant an execution. Except he couldn’t; it felt like trying to slaughter a baby lamb
Instead, he brought you pack to the pack. It took months until you felt comfortable around them, having been afraid they might snap and kill you
Kihyun took charge of you, making sure no wolf messed with you, and sometimes breaking rules to make you happy. You weren’t allowed to return home, but he would let you write your family letters to assure them you’re safe and alive
One morning, a female wolf started to pick a fight with you, threatening your life; “If it weren’t for Kihyuns protection, you’d be dead long ago.”
“Why does he protect me?”
“He loves you, dumbass. Luckily for you”
Kihyun bursts in suddenly, scaring her off and wrapping you in a hug: “Are you okay? Did she hurt you?” He scanned your face for any sign of fear, instead he found you smiling. “What’s so funny?”
Reaching up, you press a kiss to his lips; “I love you too, idiot”
Your first impression of him was rather negative. As a new pack member, you worked hard to fit in and impress your leader,, yet someone so high up like Hyungwon did nothing but sleep all the time. And if he wasn’t sleeping, he had this bitchy look on his face
It wasn’t until a neighbouring pack tried to start something, that you understood the real Hyungwon
A beta from the rival pack attacked you, both of you in wolf form, and your shoulder was badly injured
Hyungwon snapped that beta’s neck, nursing you back to health, and fussing over the others that were injured. He had a gentle, warm touch as he tended to your injury. And you even seen him sing one of the youngest to sleep, a 9 year old girl that lost her mother in the fight with the rival pack
Once better, you kind of just followed him around?? You wanted to repay him so you would fetch whatever herbs he wanted, or a rabbit if he was hungry, and for his birthday, you bought him the fluffiest pillows you could find
Hyungwon immediately fell for you
One evening, as the sun was setting, you returned to him with a basket of flowers he’d asked you to pick; “What are they for, Wonnie?”
“You’ll see,” he promised, arranging the flowers into a bouquet before handing them to you. “They’re for you. I wanted you to pick the prettiest flowers because my eyes don’t see beauty like yours do. That’s one of the reasons I love you.”
“That’s cute but be honest,, you made me pick them so you wouldn’t have to get out of bed, right??”
*avoiding the q* “So are you free tonight?”
Either or aggressive or soft, so he can be unpredictable. This is made worse during the full moon or mating season
Usually, newbies to the pack are assigned to keep watch on him, mainly cause no one actually wants to deal with Jooheon when he’s mad or acting clingy and cute
As the newest member, you’re given this job
Only you don’t react like everyone else has
You humour his cute side, scratching behind his ear (just how he likes it) when he’s in wolf form, smiling at his aegyo, bringing him extra food when he’s hungry even tho the other wolves call him chubby but he’s not leave him alone
And you listen when he’s mad or frustrated, helping him control his aggression until after a few months, Jooheon learns how to be calm, even during a full moon
He grows to realize that his aggression was misunderstood sadness; he was lonely, wanting a companion to love him and maybe have a litter with
Although he realizes this, it takes him another long year before he actually confesses. He had been too afraid of loosing you or getting rejected. His pack hated seeing him hold back like that so they eventually pushed him to confess
“Do you, uh, wanna go running in our wolf forms?? I mean, like, not just running. But as a … date??”
Generally in control of himself,, although he hates humans, he never kills one unless they deserve it
Only looses control during mating season
Driven by lust, he breaks away from the pack, searching for someone to ease his carnal hunger
He stumbles upon an omega, you, wandering through the forest alone. You had smelled him coming from miles away, knowing what he was hunting for
You stayed,, wanting to feed your desire too
The morning after, he turns shy and soft. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to be so forceful last night.” Although he knows your bruises will heal quickly, that doesn’t make him feel any less bad
“That’s okay. I like a man who takes control. So do you wanna get breakfast or something?”
Tbh he didn’t know you, but the night before was pretty damn good so hell yeah, let’s get some f*cking eggs and bacon
fave thing about the wonder woman movie is that steve trevor isnt there bc diana needs a man, hes there bc diana deserves love and bc it gives the veiwers a real idea of the pain she would have to feel by outliving all her friends. showing her in the future wouldnt be enough we had to actually see that she had lost someone she cared about and then we would make the connection that she lost everyone else too. it also shows that a woman loving a man doesnt make her weak, bc most women in superhero films are only there as love interests but diana was not only a whole person and the main character but she loved someone and was still strong and powerful and important and he helped her morally decide things without making it seem like she couldnt make decisions of her own and honestly its the most empowering and precious movie ive ever seen im still crying
Mirrors have a lot of meaning in mermaids folklore. As you should know from myths, most mermaids have something that “fulfills” her, something that is really special for her, it can be a mirror, a seashell, a hair comb (the most common ones) or like mine, a necklace, but the important thing is that it is said that if you take a mermaid’s (or other merfolk) “special thing”, she will lose her free will, so it turns mirrors into really precious objects.
Most of these myths end with the siren finding its precious object and returning to the sea, leaving behind a husband and children… why? easy, nobody likes to be forced to marry and have children. But some merfolk even take their children with them back home, don’t worry. (This takes me to making a post later about myths of mermaids and human daughters and sons, and some characteristics that they use to have, but that’s for another post!)
Also, mirrors represent water (the ocean, a river, a lake, all of them can work as a natural mirror) and have a more deep meaning than just “oh look! I’m beautiful!”. Nah, we’re not that egocentric (well, at least not all of us). Just listen:
Mirrors are used for mermaid magic as a window to other worlds and tend to represent wisdom, can be used in astral travel, meditation, divination (scrying), and even for protection: a ward that looks like a mirror on the outside reflects all negativity and keeps positivity and light on the inside. Also, and most importantly, mirrors symbolize truth. Yeah, truth, reality, seeing things clearly, revelation… but what does that mean?
It means that, for a mermaid, as strongly related to water and it’s power, looking herself at a mirror is like looking at their true self, we see feelings, past, things that we did and how that changed us, how the world can form a person… or a mermaid, in this case lol
Then, they’re used for divination, astral travel, meditation and such, but also introspection and shadow work too.
I hope this clarifies some myths and misunderstandings about merfolk and mirrors♥
