the season just gets more and more intense

doesntmakemuchsense  asked:

On manga acwnr, Hanji talked with Levi, Isabel and Farlan, but on OVA that talk is removed without mercy. What you think was the cause for a lot of Hanji development be removed in animate version?

Okay, first of all, this is a really good question, i love it. In fact, i have given this a lot of thought so this is gonna be a long answer.

In regards to ACWNR, they actually removed a lot of stuff from the manga. The first time i watched the animated version, i was kinda pissed off by it. They changed Erwin’s speech and their conversation BEFORE  the expedition (don’t even get me started on that…), the way Levi rescued Isabel from the streets, the lovely insult that Levi said to Flagon, even the chasing scene! Or The moment where Levi throws Erwin off his horse, that’s just epic. They changed so many details. I understand that some things need to be removed in order to fit and to make it more appealing to the viewer and i’d love to hear the thoughts of Isayama on the matter.  It seems to me, that they tried to just focus on Levi and leave other character’s development aside; because of it, we don’t get to hear, for example, Farlan’s impression over Hanji “doesn’t seem like the type who particularly cares what other think”, that wasn’t related to Levi directly so they probably consider it wasn’t crucial to the plot.

But when it comes to the scene with Hanji you’re referring to and the anime overall (these not only apply to Kui Naki Sentaku) i have some extra thoughts:

1)Manga Hanji and anime Hanji have differences and it’s undeniable. The animators tried to make them more like “the crazy scientist”, because this is a very common type of character in anime and, also,  this made the veterans’ trio personalities’ really contrast with each other, specially Levi/Hanji and that’s fun to watch, it brings dynamism to the plot. Manga!Hanji is a little bit more serious, intense and just full of badassery. So instead of her having a normal conversation with Levi and his friends, the animators changed it to her blushing and being just really excited about Levi’s skills, and that kinda crazy attitude (i do like the blushing part lol the Levihan feels take the best of me. I think one of the reasons they changed this scene is directly linked to the way the animators themselves portray Hanji. I really hope that in Season 2 we get to see the anime!Hanji more similar to the manga one, and by the looks of the teaser (the one with Nick) we might get it . YAY. Hanji is an amazing character and i feel that the anime version doesn’t really make them justice. 

2) I also believe the anime version tries harder to make Levi look badass, more arrogant and distant than he actually is in the manga version. So that’s also why we just get this Levi practicing in the distance while Hanji is just watching, they didn’t show Levi’s  vulnerable face when Hanji approaches him and his introvert attitude of “i don’t know how to handle this energetic person”.

I mean, look at him! He even apologizes! 

I believe Levi is just this regular really hot dude who has like bad social skills and that just happens to be really strong …. but that idea isn’t appealing for a broader audience. The animators maybe didn’t feel like this particular scene fits the kind of character they want to show the viewer, when it comes to both Levi and Hanji. A really tough guy and a crazy chick are more “anime-like”, “shonen-like”,  maybe this could seem like a really bad explanation, but this isn’t the first anime where this happens. I’ve been reading manga my whole life and i’ve seen so many characters have details altered. I’m not saying i don’t like the anime version of SnK, i LOVE IT, i could watch it forever, but i think the manga version is more realistic. Isayama has created characters who seem like they’re actually real people, with their quirks and their sorrows and that’s a great virtue not all story-tellers have so i don’t expect the animators to get it absolutely right.

3) Now i’m gonna dial down the seriousness and say… damn, that conversation was a real good Levihan moment and i don’t mean it just in a romantic kind of way, it can be also in a friendship kind of way. Hanji approached this thug, whose only reason for being there is he’s just so freaking strong and, on top of it, he has hell of an attitude and HANJI DOESN’T CARE AT ALL. Nobody wants to talk to them and SHE GIVES ISABEL CANDY! Maybe Levi was  touched by that, to finally have someone who doesn’t look at him like a threat. She even asks him to share his tricks. This was the moment when their appreciation for each other as comrades, or friends or whatever you want to believe, started. And that’s simply beautiful. It sucks we didn’t get to watch it animated.

  I could talk about this forever so i probably should stop now lmfao thank you so much for the ask! I really enjoyed answering it and i would love to hear your own opinions on the matter. 

Bellarke, Season 4, Love Confessions, and Kisses

There seems to be a lot of speculation about this at the moment, so I thought that I would offer in my own two cents.

My opinion on this topic is always changing, I’ve imagined it several times after various plot points and it is different almost every single time. This is just a momentary speculation based upon what we’ve seen, analyzing the crap out of that, and where I think the story is going personally.

I’ve seen a lot of people speculate that Bellarke won’t be together until season five as of late, but I disagree. Everything that I have seen in season 4 thus far gives me the idea that these two will be canon soon… probably sooner than a lot of us might think. I’m banking on a kiss by the end of season 4, and feel that it might be a disservice to the story if the writers drag it out any farther than that. 

These two characters have been building and building and building their relationship from the start of the series until now, and it has literally no where else to go. We’ve seen hugs. We’ve heard “I need you” and “I can’t lose you too” and “if you need forgiveness, I’ll give that to you” and “I trust you” and “I believe you” and “if you’re on that list, I’m on that list” and “she’ll see how special you are” and “If I don’t see you again-”

Think on those quotes for a moment. Think about how the story line and dynamic has developed between these two characters. Think about that last line and what it means in regard to where their story is going.

It’s my belief that the writers knew exactly what they were doing when they entered in that last line- that they knew exactly what we would think and how we would respond. The fact that it was said less than half-way through the season means that it will likely be revisited at some point before season five, that Bellarke is mostly likely going to be canon by the end of four.

We’re now facing another Bellarke separation after a potential love confession on Bellamy’s part. You know what ALWAYS happens when these two are separated? Everything goes to hell and they lose their minds over each other. We’ve seen this throughout the show, and every single time it happens Bellarke is brought closer because of it and they become significantly more aware of the feelings that they have for one another and how those feelings are more intense than any other relationship that they have. So, basically Bellarke+separation=development and realization of feelings. I don’t see that ending any other way than these two characters fully recognizing the love that they have for one another and acting on it. Meaning that we’re either going to get a kiss (I think this is going to happen first, actually), a love confession, or both (we’re probably going to get both but I don’t want to be too greedy).

After all this time, I still think that Clarke is going to be the one to initiate a kiss when it happens. I know Bellamy is the one that’s waiting on the sidelines to profess his everlasting love, but I think that the separation changes that. I’m one of those people that thinks Clarke knows how Bellamy feels. She cut him off last episode, probably with the same impression that we did, intentionally pushing back that conversation to a later date when it wasn’t under the circumstance of “goodbye.” The separation gives her time to analyze how SHE feels. I’m 99% certain that when Bellamy goes back to Arkadia and discovers that Octavia has run away, he’s going to do everything in his power to find her and make peace. That’s what’s important to him right now. And he’s not really going to tell anyone what he’s doing except for the blurred figure in the background (I’m pretty sure it’s Kane). When Clarke finds this out, we’re going to see her worried!kitten mode come out again. She’s going to wonder if Bellamy’s already dead and how much she needs him in her life. She’s going to realize the full extent of her feelings for him and how their relationship differs from her other friends. She’s going to dwell on his final words to her and what he might possibly say before she cut him off. She might even wish she hadn’t.

When she sees him again, I think that the writers are going to give us something that directly PARALLELS THE HUG IN 2X05. She’s going to run to him and collide into him and wrap her arms around him, but that’s not where it’s going to end this time. She’s going to press her lips to his and it’s going to be the most passionate and intense and beautiful thing that we’ve ever seen. Poor Bellamy’s probably not going to know what to think other than “dearGod,Clarke’skissingmerightnowwhatdoIdo?!” and then he’s going to return the favor in kind and deepen the kiss. Then they’re going to break away from each other, but still hold each other in their arms and smile like we’ve never seen them smile before.

That’s where my mind is right now. It’s probably a bit fanfiction-y and I’ll probably be way off base with this speculation, but I’m certain that we’ll get a kiss like this at some point. Bellarke is being written as an epic romance. So I have no doubt we’ll get an epic kiss.

I also have another speculation about how Bellarke could go this season, a bit more slow burn-y and less intense and more realistic. I’m just so in love with the potential of this idea though, because the first Bellarke hug was a moment that we all lost our minds (and still do, occasionally) and we’d lose them all even more if the writers decided to parallel that moment with a kiss. Let me know if you would like to hear the alternate speculation as well!

Ninjago Season 1, 2, and 3 Analysis  (Part 1)

Season 1 /  Rise of the Serpentine

Summary:

The first season of Ninjago, Rise of the Serpentine, 13 episodes are dedicated to our main characters Kai, Cole, Jay, and Zane stopping ancient race of evil snakes from destroying the world from a bigger snake, while trying to deal with Lord Garmadon’s son, learning to get stronger on the way, and who is going to be the destined Green Ninja.

Keep reading

So we’re all talking about the kiss because it was and is everything. But this moment gripped my rapidly beating heart and squeezed it until it was gasping for air.  

When Phryne said “More than anything” I had to listen to it twice just to check I heard her correctly.  We have never seen her be so open, raw and honest with her feelings for Jack.  And they aren’t just feelings but serious love, because she’s basically saying he is all she wants.

Fark. I’m dying.  I’ve watched this episode three times already and the feels just get more intense.

I believe in Sherlock Holmes.

Damn…. The whole fandom is upside down…
Sherlock season 4 was a hectic, chaotic, impressive and intense season.
With high ups and deep downs. We saw Sherlock and John hit the ground. But we also saw them coming back up. We saw a side of Mycroft we’ve never expected, we got to see Greg working on his future, we saw that Mrs. Hudson is more than just a landlady, we saw John telling Sherlock he isn’t a machine, and we saw Sherlock getting more human than he ever had been before. We’ve seen how his brain works. How he is capable to delete things from his brain and create his own reality instead. We saw how friendship becomes more important then ever before.
It was gorgeous. It was a rollercoaster of emotions, there were a lot of open endings and a lot of questions that stayed unanswered.

But that’s were the fandom comes in. We make our own story’s, our own deductions.
Some of us will let Sherlock find love in his new found family, some of us will make Mary into a hero, some of us will make Mycroft and Lady Smallwood a thing. While others rather see Sherlolly instead of Johnlock, or Mystrade instead of Smallcroft. What will happen to Eurus? What will become of Molly? How will Rosamund grow up? There are a lot of story’s to tell.

And that’s a gift. A gift given to us from the writers. They gave us the opportunity to create, fantasise, dream. They gave us the opportunity to make our own story’s.

So let us just enjoy this great series, these great actors and writers who made this happen. Who made this real for us. And stop being negative about this season. Even if there isn’t going to be a fifth season, we shouldn’t see this as an ending, but as a new beginning.

Let the fandom live on.

Dorky Autumn Sheith HCs

Because everyone seems like they could use some positivity and happy thoughts.  (forgive the brief double-post; tumblr’s tagging system is dumb)

Pre-Kerberos (wherein I am assuming Keith and Shiro knew each other before Shiro was promoted, thus their familiarity isn’t as off-putting):

  • Shiro gets terrible allergies this time of year (he swears they’re seasonal, while Keith insists that the lack of vegetation means that–no, Shiro, you’re just inhaling desert dust).  Cue Keith stopping by every day with a pack of tissues and a crooked half-smile that Shiro secretly adores.
    •  (He might or might not be over-exaggerating the extent to which his “allergies” are causing him grief.) 
  • Training sessions that begin in full, Garrison-standardized winter get-up (because, hey, it’s getting colder). Each layer gradually being stripped off as the rigorous nature of their sparring gets more and more intense. They each decide to stop at shirts and pants, for the other’s sake (and their own). When they leave afterward, they occasionally forget to re-dress, and thus freeze their asses off running back to their respective living quarters.
  • Shiro learning (or, rather, coming to the realization) that Keith has never had a Christmas (or any other fun winter festivities) surrounded by… Well, by virtually anybody. The winter holidays are right around the corner, and he decides that he’s going to rope Keith into some December-time fun, Shirogane Family style. 
  • Keith and Shiro taking the bike out for a spin one night in November, taking it out to Keith’s Desert Dream Getaway™. The weather has turned crisp (as this is a cold-natured desert–I’m thinking something like Nevada’s Great Desert Basin, because it’s close to Garrison, Utah, and because… Well, Aliens.) 
  • Keith grabbing a blanket from the shack, dusting it off, and setting it out on the sand. They sit and watch a lunar eclipse together, curled up underneath a second quilt. Shiro is leaning his weight against Keith’s side, and Keith has an arm draped comfortably across the other’s sweater-warmed shoulders. Despite the chilly nip in the air around them, Keith has never felt a warmth quite like this.
  • They share their first kiss that night ‘neath the red of the moon, chaste and hesitant–knowing the implications of a newly-appointed senior officer kissing a cadet. 
  • Though still very close, they don’t breach the topic again before Shiro leaves in two months’ time.

Post-Voltron: 

  • Zarkon (along with a myriad of other threats) has long been defeated, and the universe is doing relatively well. The 5 paladins from earth are long-past their prime, and have retired from years of defending the universe to go about their own lives (maybe others have taken their place at this point?). 
  • Keith and Shiro, now happily married, have taken up residence in Keith’s old Love Shack™(baaaaby~♪); maybe Shiro works as a professor at the reformed Garrison, and Keith continues to fly occasional missions for the military? (though only when it is required of him–both he and Shiro have had enough “space” to last a millennium)
  • They have the other former paladins over toward the tail end of autumn for a feast/fun festivities (it runs in tandem with Shiro’s birthday at the start of winter, so it works out well). It usually ends with all five (plus anyone else who can visit–Allura and Coran visited a couple of times, Matt makes a point to come along any year that he can) too exhausted to move. 
  • They spend their evenings together whenever possible, the biggest solace from the stressors of daytime. In the fall, they curl up on the sofa every night that they both have at home, supporting each others’ weights and sipping hot cocoa–Keith’s with mini marshmallows, Shiro’s with a cinnamon stick, and both with a bit of gritty desert sand (it’s coarse, and rough… And it gets everywhere, beverages included). Even so, it’s an acquired texture that they’ve both missed in their time piloting Voltron and living off of food-goo for years. 
  • When it finally snows one particularly cold autumn, the two are absolutely ecstatic. After all, not only does it rarely snow in the desert, but it never snows in space. Shiro wakes up first, notices the odd whiteness outside their window, and all but tugs Keith out of bed right then and there. 
    • When they finally get outside, it’s a thin layer (barely enough to cover the brush and sand in front of the shack), but they’re both enthralled by it. They have a makeshift snowball fight (which, given the combination of sand and slush, went about as well as you can imagine) and build a tiny snow-lion for in front of their abode.
  • Keith and Shiro spend the remainder of their lives happy, safe, and together.

anonymous asked:

Honestly, I know there's more to relationships than just making out, but I really want more Malec kisses/intimate moments next season. Not only would it be fun to watch them explore the physical side of their relationship (and flustered Alec is my jam), but it would also help to normalize Male x Male intimacy, you know? I hope we get a few scenes of Malec that are like the Izzy/Meliorn scene, or even the Simon/Camille scene (minus the non-con).

yes!!

a list of malec intimacy things we need:

  • forehead kisses
  • forehead touching, with eyes closed or while staring into each other’s eyes intensely and lovingly
  • alec casually resting his hand on the small of magnus’ back 
  • casual handholding all the time
  • laying on the couch with alec’s head on magnus’ lap (and vice versa)
  • playing with each other’s hair (esp in the situation above)
  • maybe hair-pulling too but this is a sfw post we’re not gonna go there
  • sleepy morning cuddles
  • magnus kissing the palm of alec’s hand before he leaves for his high warlock errands
  • heavy makeout sessions on magnus’ bed
  • heavy makeout sessions on magnus’ bed, shirtless
  • intimate hugs
  • neck kisses!! magnus kissing alec’s deflect rune
  • alec kissing magnus’ forehead/temple/the top of his head
  • passionate and heated kissing against a wall
  • alec lifting/carrying magnus
  • alec backhugging magnus and kissing the crook of his neck
  • alec learning how to initiate physical contact
  • alec being comfortable w/ initiating physical contact with magnus and enjoying being able to kiss and touch his boyfriend whenever he wants to

Sense8 
Season 2 
7.6/10

I love the opening scene of the first episode. Very ethereal. 

I dig the representation of shitty life on Christmas. Not everyone gets to be surrounded by love and happiness just because the world says that the day is special.

Will seems much more in control without his beard. 

I love Yoon Yeo Jeong. 

Sensates are so complex. How extraordinary. But, life has gotten so much more stressful for them.

I love how they keep visiting art museums. 

The killings here just got so intense. 

I still love Sun’s dog.

E-death. Amazing. To join anarchists or not?

Everyone is so hot. I was really into Hernando the first season, but Lito is really upping his game for me here. 

Sun and Lila are so badass. 

I hate all this discrimination.

Hey! I am a junior in high school REALLY looking to go into the medical field (surgery or otherwise). Do you have any courses/videos/documentaries/books you recommend? I'm volunteering at a hospital but I want to learn more :) thank you!!

Hi! Sounds like you have a good idea as to where you looking into and have already gotten off to a good start by volunteering. Now I must say this as a caveat as many others (Wayfairing, Cranquis, etc) have said: don’t forget to be a kid. Yes yes, you’re almost a full-fledged legal adult, but don’t forget to do the fun things of high school and college.

Now that I’ve gotten that disclaimer out of the way, I do have a few recommendations as I was kind of a in a similar situation when I was your age (crap saying that makes me feel old). However, this also depends upon what you’re really looking into. Sounds like you’re big into surgery. I was a trauma nerd from the get-go. These overlap some but I’ll also include more for general purposes, as there are folks interested in other specialties (and just with surgery there are a whole lot of subspecialties).

If you’re not taking an anatomy class already, I recommend that. Look into what your local college/community colleges offer, particularly in anatomy and physiology. I was able to do a cadaver lab dissection as a part of my biology class senior year, which was a really amazing experience.

As far as the internet (which if you’re on here you’re already seeing a lot of the medblr/nurblrs): look into blogs which suit your fancy. Same thing with twitter. A lot of the various med schools and medical groups have very active twitters and this can be a great way to see what the latest and greatest things are that are coming about from research and such. Dr. McGonagall (head of trauma surgery) from Regions Hospital in Minneapolis/St. Paul area has a really active tumblr (regionstraumapro). Lurie Children’s in Chicago and I think it’s UC-San Diego also have active handles. I’m  sure there are plenty others that are out there that I haven’t seen yet so consider digging around. I’m also a lover of Dr. Pimple Popper (Sandra Lee) on instagram and youtube. She has some really fascinating cases and loves to talk about them (while she’s excising them).

PBS’s NOVA has a bunch of good shows regarding medical stuff. I have a few favorites which include:

1. “So You Want to Be A Doctor?” – 10 year study where they follow a select  group of students at Harvard Med School first starting in the early 90s. There’s another episode in 2001/2002 that’s a follow up with all of the docs. Pretty interesting look into the hell that can be med school and residency and how this affects the lives of doctors and their families for the good and bad.
2. “Dying to Breathe” - covers the lives of three people with end stage lung disease waiting for a transplant.
3. “Separating Twins” - Two Bangladeshian twins are taken to Australia in efforts to separate them in a really high risk surgery.
4. “Vaccines - Calling the Shots” - interesting look at the public health crises and epidemiology regarding vaccinations

PBS’s Frontline also has some good episodes. These are just two that I’ve seen and based upon their episode list, there’s a bazillion more.
1. “Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria” – superbugs and how they came about. If this doesn’t terrify you, nothing will.

2. Facing Death - takes a really good, hard look at end-of-life care and decisions, particularly that in the ICU (unfortunately something I’m all too familiar with). 

Nat Geo has one that is my particular favorite called “Chicago Trauma” which highlights the trauma department (from the subsection of the ER dedicated to trauma to their Trauma/SICU). County takes a huge number of GSW and other trauma victims within the city of Chicago and has subsequently developed a really amazing trauma program.

Discovery had a series of shows called “Trauma: Life in the ER” which is all documentary format but goes into various ERs across the country and takes a look at trauma patients as well as regular medicine patients facing emergent situations in the ER.


Other documentaries that I like are Code Black and Baghdad ER. Code Black follows residents in LA County Hospital and the massive issues of overcrowding and charting and such. Baghdad ER follows the crew of US Army ER nurses and docs, surgeons, orthopods, etc working in the middle of Baghdad taking care of wounded GIs and Iraqis alike. Pretty fascinating, albeit very gruesome. Definitely one to watch if you’re a trauma/surgery geek.

As far as some of the fictional ones, I’m always one for the early seasons of ER. They have the intensity but are also (in my opinion) a lot more accurate than the later seasons, and always way more accurate than shows like Grey’s or House. I’m also not a member of The Vagina Squad (OB/GYN) so I can’t attest to the accuracy of the show, but I have always thought Call the Midwife is pretty great, though I do get the feeling that there’s a few too many happy endings at the end of it (not trying to be the black cloud, just trying to be realistic). Amazon has a British series called “London Hospital” which apparently is a kind of flashback series to the British show Casualty (another show which I heard was good back in it’s earlier years). 

So as you can see, I clearly watch too much TV :) However, I do think a lot of these are really good things to kind of whet your palate and help you in focusing on what you like. From there I think it’s easy to get into different books and focus. I don’t have  many book recommendations as a lot of them can get kind of technical and most of them are nurse-focused, but Trauma Junkie: Memoirs of an Emergency Flight Nurse by Janice Hudson is pretty amazing.

Tina Desai teases 'Sense8' Season 2, Wolfgang and Kala's 'electric' future and plays cast-mate superlative

IBT: Your chemistry with Max Riemelt aka Wolfgang is palpable in the show. Do you share a good rapport with him off the screen? Who are you closest to among the seven other sensates?

Desai: Thank you. Max is a tremendous actor who I’m also maybe the closest to in the whole group because of the time we spend together on shoot. The support for Kala and Wolfie’s story is maniacal and I love it! I actually enjoy the company of all seven because they’re a fun bunch, and we really do share cluster love, in a way.

IBT: Could you describe each of your cast-mates with a superlative?

Desai: Aml Ameen (Capheus)- Thoughtful
           Doona Bae (Sun Bak) - Shy
           Jamie Clayton (Nomi Marks) - Feisty
           Tuppence Middleton (Riley Blue) - Cheerful
           Max Riemelt (Wolfgang Bogdanow) - Intense
           Miguel Ángel Silvestre (Lito Rodriguez) - Sassy
           Brian J Smith (Will Gorski) – Gentle

IBT: Can you tease anything about Season 2? Will Kala break off her engagement and officially get together with Wolfgang? Can we look forward to all the sensates physically meeting at some point? Where was Riley taking Will in the Season 1 finale?

Desai: Of course not! Even I have only read till Episode 7, so I don’t know what fully happens in this season, but even what I do know, I won’t share because the fun is in not knowing. I can just say things have gotten even more intense and action-packed, and the relationship between Kala and Wolfie is more stressful and electric than ever!

Hello Lovelies, It’s Been A While. We Need To Catch Up~


Long Story Short:

Life sucks. I’m getting around to being my old self again but it’s taking a while. I won’t go too far into details here but it’s been an uphill trudge through snow. Like Covered California dicking me around until the last possible moment.  It creates this feeling of constantly being at odds with the world, and for a while I was afraid that if I start drawing and I was just having an off day or something, that art would fall into that category of antagonists as well. The last thing I want is to hate art.

So instead of being bitchy on tumblr, I was only bitchy on skype. That’s a win in my book. I didn’t want to worry people with post after post of my life systematically destroying itself, because I can be a very dramatic person and I may have painted my problems as being more… colorful… than they actually were out of frustration. But now that it’s all calming down I can take a moment to breathe and get my head on straight.

I have a lot of the show to watch to have relevant material to work with and shit, I mean I stopped like at the end of season 3, I just need some referential material to call back to. I have to get some personal works out of the way too. And yes, I’m still going to college that consists mostly of- YOU GUESSED IT- more work intensive art classes.


I also lost the password to this blog a while back as hotmail decided that the Lessy email was up to shenanigans so they seized it and didn’t give it back, so I’m back to yahoo. Because yahoo never treats me poorly. Except when i don’t link my phone.


TL;DR

It’s hard to draw or find the desire to when everything is causing stress, anxiety, and anger. And you DON’T want to have that happen to art as well.

holy shit the new star vs the forces of evil episode was SO GOOD

Buff Frog became a father and his real name is Yvgeny Bulgoyaboff, i almost lost my shit

Toffee is just getting more and more unsettling
was anyone else super creeped out by his sudden smile??

Everyone was so badass (save for Ludo bc fuck Ludo am I right) and the whole episode was so intense holy shit

so how long are we gotta wait till season 2??

and what was with all the weird sparkly sandwiches

I had to put all the stars together to make a wish for you to see the smile we wrote under the Christmas tree. Ornaments of fragile hearts we chastised to flatten the ends of ribs we hallowed out for a symphony of butterflies my hands don’t have enough movements for when you say hello. Our lips have mouthed dances longer than the air turns to crisp, and I’m sorry our fall broke into oranges brighter than the summer that froze our hearts. That the leaves whisper secrets more tender than our first kiss. Two thorns could never rewrite beauty, but could I keep you this winter? The seasons are about to change again, but no matter what temperature the weather feels, I’ll still call you mine. We have been friends for some time now, but our friendship is still early morning fog that I get lost in. No high beams, just your smile. No more crying, just more writing. No more feeling an intense feeling of regret, just me holding your hands into a happiness that won’t break with the simple touch of ongoing depression. I know you didn’t mean to leave us for a few days, but I never stopped caring, not even for a day. We still search for worms as night owls, but the early bird always beats us there. We were never morning people, but coffee made us out to be a photograph stained with tears– because holding it in my hands meant that I was going to burn it later that afternoon. I know your heart isn’t inside of your chest and I know just because you’re inside of a house… That doesn’t mean you’re at home… And you know something else? Just because someone says that they love you, it doesn’t mean that they love you for you. That’s the cruelty we write about and my, isn’t the weather feeling a bit cold without us holding on like lovers who haven’t met since the initial impression of this may be the last time I’ll see you ever again. Hey, don’t worry. I’m not a season, I don’t change just because it’s going stale and my face is pale. I’m not going anywhere without you. If we are like the seasons in any way, it is the consistent three months we planned carefully each year.
—  Sometimes it happens like this. We blink and everything’s dying. We blink and the lights are off. Sometimes it doesn’t happen at all. I open my eyes and you are gone. I open back up and you’re singing the same song to rip us apart.

Could you imagine -

Just pause for a moment and picture PLL if it were not on ABC Family. I don’t think the overall story would be different, because PLL is about 5 girls sticking together to solve the mystery of A. However, how they go about presenting the story would no doubt be different if it were on another TV network!

Could you imagine Hanna doing her one-liners whilst swearing?

Or the liars going to clubs drinking (not being worried about setting a family friendly image every single time)?

Or A running around town with a gun being even more reckless?

Or a few more sexy scenes?

Or a bit more violence, perhaps more intensity than just A pushing Mona into a wall in her ‘murder’ video.

Or more realistic reactions by the liars when A does something wicked, rather than “oh my god” (who wouldn’t scream WTF at the top of your lungs when you get creepy texts about body bags, dead friends, threats, or texts that expose secrets!)

Or maybe longer finales, like How To Get Away With Murder which extended their really important, answer-filled season finale.

Or Spencer could’ve been a legit A/evil for more than 2 episodes - ABC Family actually rejected Marlene’s idea of revealing Spencer as A in a finale and making fans wait months later until the NEXT finale to reveal its for the greater good. ABCF said yes to the idea but fans must find out almost straight away (2 episodes) the truth.

Or the sets could be bigger and better due to he network giving a higher budget. For years we were used to the same sets - Rosewood High, the Brew and the liars’ homes.

Or perhaps with a bigger budget we could get an episode or two in a different location; I remember Shay said her dream PLL episode would be in Europe but the closest ABC Family would ever get to going overseas is Melissa’s apartment in London from 5B!

Or we could get quality episodes over quantity of episodes - ABC Family is clearly taking PLL down the quantity (7 seasons) over quality path. There are some episodes which literally have no relevance at all to the major story and the story could have still progressed without some episodes (most of 5B…)

Or Sparia finally getting it on??? Probably not haha

Now, this list isn’t supposed to be a list of hate of what PLL is doing wrong. Every network is different. We all love PLL (and hate at times) - but mostly love. But at times I can’t help but daydream about what it COULD have been. Still very grateful for what we do have but I could day dream all day about a swearing Hanna and a super drunk Spencer, and an A that has no chill and goes on a shooting spree.

Sherlock, TV’s best bromance, returns.

Presumed death has, if anything, energized Holmes and his show, a modern take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective that imagines him as a sort of brainiac superhero whose special power is ice-cold logic. This Holmes has a cape (fine, a long coat), a lair on Baker Street, a good right hook, and a devoted following, but his true identity—that is to say, his heart—is known only to one man. Since Sherlock’s presumed death two years ago, that man, Watson, went through a period of intense and profound mourning, one he is just coming out of thanks to his new girlfriend, Mary (Amanda Abbington). Sherlock expects to be welcomed back by Watson with open arms; he’s not quite attuned, as ever, to the feelings of the more feeling people around him. The third season is looser, funnier, more emotional and also significantly less logical than what has come before. It takes its structure not, as in the past, from specific cases, but the evolving relationships between the members of its newly minted love triangle.

…The show wastes no time getting the “Watson and Sherlock are in love with each other” cracks out in the open, but without ever quite descending into a homosexual panic. Watson loudly and regularly asserts that he and Sherlock are not lovers, but he is vulnerable before Sherlock and openly caring and protective of him. The wonderful second episode revolves around Sherlock’s very moving wedding toast to John. Their love is deep and real. The show even goes so far as to suggest that Mary, much more complicated than she initially seems, is, in some ways, a female Holmes—a person who lives in an exciting moral gray area—and that’s why Watson likes her so much.

…But Watson is the only person in the whole world that Sherlock loves, the only human being who Sherlock apologizes to, misses, gets jealous of, plans weddings for. Are we really supposed to think that Sherlock, master of logic, would care that Watson is a man? At the very, very least this Sherlock Holmes would have no qualms with bisexuality: He would flirt with men as shamelessly as women to crack a case.

-Slate, Come on, Sherlock Would Certainly Be Bisexual (Also, The New Season is Very Good)

It’s interesting to me how many American critics have been embracing S3’s focus on John and Sherlock’s relationship and outright calling it a love story vs. UK critics’ response, which was to kind of sidestep the issue while still praising the show.

“You’re not just an uncle.”

Oh. Dang. While Monday’s Teen Wolf was batsh*t crazy in multiple ways, perhaps one of the most baffling moments was when Peter Hale (Ian Bohen) discovered—through our favorite banshee’s expert ghost-whisper-hearing skills—that he’s a dad! While there’s no shortage of beautiful genes in that family, there’s also no shortage of evil, so we’re a little bit worried about that little wolf and what it might be capable of. Although, if Lydia (Holland Roden) and Allison (Crystal Reed) have got it right, that little wolf is neither little nor a wolf—it’s a teenage coyote, and we’ve already met her: Malia (Shelley Hennig)!

We got to talk to Ian Bohen all about Peter’s big discovery and found that he himself was pretty shocked by the left-field plot development. “It came completely out of nowhere,” he told E! News, but it made a little more sense when he explained why Peter had no idea. “Talia took that memory from him because she didn’t want him to corrupt the child.” Good call, Talia.

So will Peter’s new papa wolf status fill him with love and change his outlook on life? We’re thinking no. “He’s going to use the revelation to ultimately get what he wants. It’s going to be a tool for him,” said Bohen.

So just how evil is Peter this season?

“I think Peter’s kind of plateauing right now. He’s biding his time, he’s earning trust, he’s not doing anything too bad, and he’s getting to the point where everybody forgets how awful he was. They always wanted to kill him, but now he’s sort of trustworthy, and they’re like, ‘OK, you’re fine, you can join us.’ It’s just a build up for what he wants.”

If Bohen had his way, Peter wouldn’t be quite so evil, but as the Teen Wolf writers keep reminding him, that’s just not how it is. “They’re like, ‘He’s just bad. Accept it.’ Thank God he’s funny,” Bohen joked. “I don’t think he’s a horrible person. He just wants what he wants really badly, and he doesn’t care who he hurts to get it. He always wants [to be the alpha], even though he’s just lost sight of it.”

It certainly sounds like we can expect Peter’s reunion with the long-lost Hale to be fairly intense, as most things on Teen Wolf are these days. “It’s going to be a big deal when he finally gets together with the child,” he said, and teased that this revelation is “setting things up for season four,” which begins production today.

With this new fatherly relationship in the mix, it sounds like it’s safe to say that we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Peter in season four. “I expect he’s going to be in the world more. He’s not going to be just in the loft, pontificating and walking down the stairs. He’s going to be doing stuff, I hope.”

We hope so, too.

The Curious Case of Dean Winchester

After all the gloriousness of what we’ve seen so far from season 10, one morning I woke up with a mighty need to write some bi!Dean meta that wouldn’t be centered around any ship… Before I begin, I’m aware that Dean Winchester isn’t (and probably never will be) canonically, explicitly bisexual. All we can hope for is more of delicious subtext. I’m not trying to be disrespectful in any way, I know what it’s like to be told that your sexuality isn’t valid. Dean thinks he’s straight, good for him. I’d just like to point out what I see. Let’s take a closer look at our lovely ladies’ man.

First of all, I think we all can agree that neither Sam nor Dean are homophobic. I’ve seen cases of people stating that based on those two scenes:

These are the situations where EVERYBODY would be at least a little intimidated, no matter what gender they’re attracted to. Seriously, even if someone’s generally attracted to males, I bet they wouldn’t be comfortable with a giant naked dude hugging them from behind. Also, the meeting with the Chief takes place about half a season after Dean comes back from hell. After all the tortures he had to endure, It’s obvious that being confronted with the idea of being tied up and helpless would creep the heck out of him. Not to mention that he expected something else when he went to see “the Chief”…

I’ve never seen the Winchesters acting homophobic, not with Charlie, not with Corbett (that guy from Ghostfacers), not with the cosplayers, not ever. Heck, they even posed as a couple for a case once. 

Dean has stated he’s straight many, many times, right? 

I think both of those situations were pretty ambiguous. In both cases it’s difficult to tell whether there was any real threat or not. What I’m trying to say here, is that Dean was depending on the hunter’s instinct. He couldn’t tell if it was an invitation of sexual nature or if he risked getting his throat ripped up. Besides, it’s obviously not something someone deeply closeted or in denial would say, right?

There’s a couple of reasons why he would internalize any kind of attraction towards men, One of them being a theory I’m not exactly delighted about (poor Dean has been through enough anyway), but I can’t help thinking it makes sense. What made me think was Jensen’s quote from Buddy TV interview:

“Dean’s a bit of a pool shark and also a bit of a gambler. It doesn’t really show it all the time, but it’s definitely implied that there are poker games and pool matches that they can win some money on. And who knows? Dean’s a promiscuous kind of guy. Who knows how he drums up the funds that they use?” 

It seems that sometimes playing poker wasn’t enough to get all the money they needed.  It wasn’t stated in the show, so theoretically it’s not canon, but nobody know Dean better than Jensen. Let’s assume for a moment that that’s what happened. I wouldn’t be surprised if he tried to deny any attraction towards guys, only associating it with not very pleasant memories. Maybe that’s also why he tends to divide sex from love. (By the way, now it suddenly makes sense to me why Dean would leave Sam alone at Plucky’s and go on “dates”)

Do you remember Dean in the episode “It’s a Terrible Life”? Dean with normal life and loving parents? Dean without John’s influence? I’m not saying I hate their dad (well, I still have very mixed feelings about him), but his expectations were probably a major part of the issue. In “Something Wicked” we learn about Sam and Dean’s little adventure with the Shtriga. We get to see the first time John made Dean feel like he’s not good enough. Maybe that’s when Dean became kind of obsessed with trying to prove himself to their father. He started following his every order without questioning, started imitating him, becoming the “manly man” and doing everything to hide his feminine, vulnerable side. It was never said in the show that John was homophobic, however I wouldn’t be surprised if Dean somehow convinced himself that being bisexual isn’t “manly” enough.

I don’t know how about you guys, but I’m completely stunned with the character development that we could witness in Dean’s case. During all the seasons after John’s death he started slowly, but surely overcoming his influence and letting the other aspects of himself show up. He set his own belief system and allowed himself to express what he actually likes. 

 Heck, He even got himself a pink iPod. That’s also the time when bi!Dean subtext started getting more and more intense.

That’s about everything on why Dean would want to hide any bisexual tendencies. Now a bit on how he sometimes fails to hide them.  Is it just me, or does he always try a little bit too hard to make sure everyone knows how heterosexual he is?

That’s what he says right after he meets Aaron, I’ll talk about this scene a bit later.

It also makes me think about this one scene in “Playthings”.

When they come across yet another person who assumes they’re a couple, Sam just gets past it, Dean’s the one who feels the need to mention it and defend his heterosexuality.

Another funny thing I noticed is that Dean likes to take his own insecurities and project them onto others. Before “The End” where we learned Dean has a thing for pink, satiny panties, he teased Sam three times about wearing women’s undergarments.

 Funny, isn’t it? Makes me wonder what he’s thinking when he says things like 

From this moment on it only gets better. In “Yellow Fever” Dean gets drunk and flirts with the deputy like there’s no tomorrow until he’s physically hauled away by Sam. 

In “Changing Channels” he has an obvious crush on Dr. Sexy and acts like a teenage fanboy who gets to meet his idol. 

In “The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo” he instructs Charlie on how to flirt with a guy. Just take a look at his face.

In “Time After Time”, when Dean goes back to 1944, he doesn’t stare at ladies in pretty dresses. He checks out a soldier. Yes, Dean got soldier’s attention because of his modern clothes, but how’s that an excuse for staring at his behind?

I also  wonder how the hell does he know about a gay bar in Miami (though I’m probably reading in too much with this one).

The last one, “Everybody Hates Hitler” is probably my favorite example. I don’t even know where to begin describing this scene to be honest… I had a hard time believing it’s real when I watched it for the first time. After getting a clear sign of interest from Aaron, Dean could just go on interviewing “two hot co-captains”. Well, he didn’t. And this time, his answer to the guy who tried to flirt with him wasn’t anything like “Sorry pal, I don’t swing that way”.  He actually said he couldn’t flirt at the moment, because he was working. Not to mention he was so worked up about it he almost fell over the table. Even later, he seemed pretty proud from his “gay thing”. (Seriously, watch that scene again.) 

There’s also a bit of subtext in the newest season, but those are mostly open for the interpretation. Like Crowley mentioning himself and Dean “doing extraordinary things to the triplets” and putting male twins in the same episode (“Reichenbach”) … But that’s probably just a coincidence ;) 

Conclusions:

1)      Nothing on Earth will make me believe Dean is 100% straight.

2)      I’d like to use various literature references as easily as I use the scenes from Supernatural…

anonymous asked:

if stydia become canon, do you think you could ever hate lydia?

no. 

d’you know i got this ask this morning and it has haunted me all day at work. i think either, you don’t know me very well, or you’re just trying to mess with me? because not wanting Stydia for me personally is all about Lydia and how she deserves more. she’s been literally passed around by the different male characters on the show, used as an anchor or a prize or a possession, a bargaining chip, she deserves her own agenda. she deserves to not be part of a tired cliché. she’s more than just a love interest to me. and let’s say Stydia does become canon, Lydia has gone from being head over heels in love with Jackson for two seasons, to moving on after being super hurt by him, and then abandoned, all the while being possessed and terrorized by Peter, to getting her game on and then meeting Aiden and having an intense, dangerous relationship with him, to falling for Stiles? after three seasons of no interest in him. and this is all in the space of a high school year. 

i want more for Lydia. i could never hate Lydia. 

i get this kind of ask so often, i get questions about Stydia v Sterek and why i ship Sterek and how can i and why don’t i ship Stydia like, this is the last ask i’m going to see the word Stydia blacklisted with in my inbox that i’m going to answer. for a long ass time. 

this little show i got into two years ago like, it was for fun, it was for my own escape and joy. now i get like a tremendous amount of asks, i get people linking my replies on twitter and ripping them apart, being rude about me personally because they don’t agree with something i’ve said about this show about werewolves. IT’S LIKE TRYING TO RUN IN MY DREAMS, OR WALKING THROUGH MUD, I DON’T KNOW WHAT MORE I CAN DO. i love this fandom and the people i’ve met in it. i love the characters on this show. but i’m not Jeff Davis. i refuse to defend myself anymore for my own decisions. i’m tired of finding things with my name in where people are being rude about me. i don’t have anything different to say, you have to know by now how i feel about this show, about the ships and characters within. 

so we’re clear. i ship Sterek. i love Allison. everyone else rises and falls in the favourites list. i’ll never be over Boyd and Erica’s deaths. i’ll always want more for the female characters. i’ll probably always take issue with the shows terrible history with consent, erasure and diversion. i’ll still write fanfiction. i’ll still have this blog. but for the sake of my own sanity going into 2014 and 3b, i am no longer talking about things you want to pick a fight with me about. i don’t owe anyone shit. 

Voltron season 2 trailer is literally sci-fi version of the Korra book 4 trailer like. Starts off with a little bit of dramatic dialogue. Then the majority of the trailer is just a bunch of cool scenes with cool music. The music starts off exciting, then gets a little quieter and less intense to let you breathe, then at the end is even more exciting. Then music stops and the trailer ends with some more dramatic dialogue to hype you up. So yeah my point is that this season is gonna Fucj Us Up lmao.
