the sunken ship

7

仏教における六道輪廻の世界観を、透明樹脂で出来たクジラの内部に封じ込める修了作品を制作した。制作にあたっては増上寺の僧侶と問答をして細かなコンセプトを決めた。クジラは大海を自由に回遊するが、陸地に近づき過ぎると座礁し息絶えてしまう。この有様を自らの力で輪廻を抜け出せない魂の器に見立て、地獄道(海底火山)、餓鬼道(ホッキョクグマの骨)、畜生道(牢獄)、修羅道(桜花と頭蓋)、人間道(難破船)、天道(雲海)の六つの世界を内包した六頭のクジラを制作した。

Types of Ships
  • Ships: the average joe
  • Boats: tiny ships that don't last for too long
  • Submarines: unknown/widely unpopular ships
  • Ghost ships: sunken ships that still sail, where one/both sides of the ship have died
  • Battleships: antis; they sink other ships for their own benefit, and are the cause of many ships wars
  • Water Police: they are the peaceful kind; they ship anything, and are always trying to (unsuccessfully) prevent ship wars
  • The Titanic: huge ships, usually OTPs that everyone knows are going to sink at some point
  • The Ark: end-game OTPs. Like it or not, everyone knows they're going to happen
  • What She Says: I'm fine
  • What She Means: Moana is historically the earliest of the canonical Disney films besides maybe Brother Bear and yet Tamatoa describes sunken pirate ships and wealthy women wearing jewelry in a supposedly pre-currency society as well as using French and Greek terms in an era when neither language would have been around let alone developed to the point of the words used so Tamatoa clearly operates outside the bounds of space and time which makes him an even bigger scrub for being defeated by getting flipped on his back

Sometimes tour guides aren’t intentionally terrible, sometimes they’re simply clumsy fools who accidentally smash delicate pieces of history into irretrievable bits because… oops. For the reasonable sum of fifty-nine thousand motherfucking dollars you could have taken a private tour in a submarine to the bottom of the ocean to see the ship that Jack built. The trouble is, it’s dark and cold and lonely at the bottom of the ocean so when these hulking metal deathtraps close in for a landing they end up battering the decaying remains of the sunken ship, causing permanent damage.

It was a good 14-year run, but eventually the one and only company making these runs to the bottom of the sea decided to pack it in to prevent further damage to the ship. It’s estimated that a good 8000-9000 items have gone missing from the wreckage, much of it contributed to wayward visitors angrily looking for a substitute souvenir after failing to find the Heart of the Ocean.

8 Wonders Of The World (Being Destroyed By Idiot Tourists)

Ok can we please talk about the fact that the Calzona shippers are literally losing their shit over the fact that Arizona has actually found someone other than her ex wife who moved across to the other side of the country with her girlfriend, and her daughter. I shipped Calzona once myself, and I still do from Season 5 - 10ish, but it basically died and rather than mourning our sunken ship, or moving on, a select group of people have decided to be angry at the new ship that has taken it’s place. 

I mean.. you’d think we’d be happy for her??? She was 50% of Calzona after all.

 But OH NO, there’s a new character who’s actually cool and Arizona actually likes, and who actually likes her back so the demon shippers have to rear up hell. Arizona isn’t replacing Callie. If you want to take it so seriously, then think like serious people. Arizona is a fully grown woman, whose wife left her, and who is moving on with her life. So can you guys not.

Also I swear if any of you touch Eliza Minnick I’ll slap you.

HP Ships

I am a massive supporter of the LGBT community, but there are a few ships I cannot get behind. I’m ready for the backlash. But there are a few that I love and may have created on my own. 

Nope. Sorry, I know these are some of the most popular in the fandom, but I can’t.

  • Drarry: Can’t do it. Not unless they have a third/fourth. Ahem, Hansy x Dramione
  • Wolfstar: Nope. I can see Sirius as bisexual/curious for sure, but I just have always seen Remus as being really self-conscious and not into sex or relationships in general. So that I was I love the canon ship of Remus x Tonks. She’s kind and weird and just accepts him.
  • Scorbus: I see these two as amazing young men who aren’t afraid to express their feelings. They defy gender norms and are the type of boys we need in the world. Their open expression of friendship does not make them gay. I have the same expression of love with many of my female friends. It doesn’t mean I want to bang them. It means I love and appreciate their friendship—the kind of friendships I know make me a better person.

    Sorry, but I’m Scorose for life. It’s a canon Granger-Malfoy coupling. It makes me so fucking happy. Also, I love Albus. Those three in the next gen have dug deep into my heart and they live in my stories as amazing adults.  

Hell Yes. They are a bit more obscure, and some from my own mind, but I love them.

  • Dumbledore x Grindlewald: God I know that must have been hot. Someone send me recs please. 
  • Ron x Viktor: I recently wrote this and man, it just fits. 
  • Blaise x Draco or Blaise x Theo: Naughty Slytherins. I almost see them treating sex in the same way the ancient Spartans did. Get really good at it with boys so they are ready to please their ladies. 
  • Deamus: That thing with Ginny was just a fling. Dean and Seamus for life. They are married in one of my stories. Dean is a fabulous hairdresser and Seamus is his supportive husband who runs the books and manages clients.
  • Pavarti x Lavender: So hot. Wild, gossipy Gryffindor girls…experimenting while away at boarding school. Yeah. I ship that. I recently started seeing Lavender as mixed race, half black/white. I think I can attribute that to Up The Hill.
  • Millicent x Susan: I can’t remember what fic I read them as a coupling, but I loved it. I love a Slytherin and Hufflepuff couple.
  • Justin Finch-Fletchley x Original Character: I loved this super posh muggle-born. I made him gay and he’s been gay in my mind ever since. I think that started forming in my head after watching Riot Club.

    He has a long-time partner named Jeremy who also goes by Jezza or Jez. Yeah, they are super posh.
