I present Undernovela the AU where everyone is very dramatic, speak español, zoom ins and on screen transitions happen out of nowhere, and anyone can just suddenly die of a heart attack. also everyone’s attractive. even the stereotypical comic relief skeleton.
y’all think this is a joke, but i actually have so much of it thought out. :y 19 years of watching shit novelas with my grandma does things to you. also click more cut if you want the translation??? lmao
Oh, Coleslaw. My love and light. Where do I start without turning this into a 500 page dissertation about how much I love you and how I would have married you if CI didn’t beat me to the punch? It’s okay. We’re married in my head. You are the best thing about this whole blog business. You singlehandedly picked me up and put me back together during a super difficult time in my life, and I owe you so much. I mean really, I would build you a whole village if I could. You deserve more than a room, but we’ll work on that :) I channeled your lil Baby for this kickin’ bathroom. If you squint really hard you can see our toiletries mixed together on the sink. A sign of true love. (Missing from this photo: Rocking chair, wine, and fat blunts.)
all these gross people on the ME: A subreddit crying about how they can’t make beautiful women anymore without a super pale skin option and everything else is too dark (even though there are like 5 white skin tones) and that the sjws ruined it by pushing a diversity agenda and all the presets are ugly and the game is unplayable and bioware owes them an explanation and i’m just over here, sipping my tea, realizing they’re literally just exposing themselves as bigoted, entitled, racist, or mysoginistic fucks
on that note, i do think the CC could use some more hair & slider options, but in no way are ALL OF THE PRESETS ugly. sure, the default make-up and tattoos might make them look a bit silly, but they gave us a nice diverse line up of faces that are more than serviceable when some TLC is applied to them
ahaha and shit, how did these people play games before CC was a thing if not being able to play your sexdoll waifu makes something unplayable?
(&:) We’re breaking our long repost/shitpost/unnecessary comment tradition for the sake of the most awesome game we’ve seen in a long, long time. ChristopherOdd’s LP of Horizon: Zero Dawn just ended today and we’ve been licking the bottom of the barrel to try and find new things to watch because the emptiness in our souls is real and profound. This game is so fucking good. It would be pointless to try and list off all the ways in which it is so, so good. If you can get your hands on it, it’s amazing. If you’re broke like us and just like watching vids while eating, COdd’s LP is quite pleasant. (His work is generally a restful breath of fresh air compared to most other LPers I’ve watched.) OMG, it HURTS, how good this game was. It is so overwhelmingly good, all the damn time.
Do you know what one of the most unexpected and wonderful parts of the plot was? NO ROMANTIC SUBPLOT. AT ALL. NOT EVEN THE OPTION TO START ONE. The main character is just an incredibly skilled, attractive, 19-year-old woman who has WAY TOO MANY IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO TO BOTHER WITH THAT RIGHT NOW, AND IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I HAVE SEEN A MAINSTREAM PLOT DO IN AGES.
THAT DUDE: Gosh, thanks for saving my life, Aloy. You’re amazing. I made special armor just for you. I worked really hard. *___* ALOY: Wow, nice. Good craftsmanship. Thank you.
THAT OTHER GUY: You are such a mighty warrior that you might even be a mightier warrior than my mom. I am constantly stunned by your badassery. You’re even favored by the local deity. Please allow me to follow faithfully wherever you lead. *_____* ALOY: Sounds good. How about you manage our defenses out yonder. I’ll be counting on you in that one battle.
THAT SUBPLOT GUY?: Girl, I have never seen anybody who looks as good splashed down in the blood of evildoers as you do. We should partner up together and spend our lives happily taking out human trash all over the world. Also, I look fucking scrumptious in this armor. ;D ;D ;D ALOY: Wow, you’re kind of creepy and sociopathic. I hope I never have to see you again.
OTHER OTHER GUY: I may be a bumbler with motivational issues, but I have a heart of gold and a lot of enthusiasm! Thanks to your guidance, I’m turning my life around and growing to become a better, more effective human being! How are you amazing like how my sister was amazing?? *______* ALOY: Good for you. I have faith in your ability to do well from now on.
THAT TOTAL BABE: Allow me to openly hit on you, you super cutie. ALOY: Allow me to not acknowledge that because I have to fix a civil war and kill robot dinosaurs. THAT TOTAL BABE: My, I love how you get things done. If I come through here again, I’ll have to Thank You Appropriately~~~ ALOY: *pulls out to-do list and starts plotting map coordinates*
ACTUAL KING OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD: I know my love interest was horribly murdered, but you’ve supported me through my time of trials and I wonder if we could work toward more intimacy. ALOY: Gee, if you really loved your love interest, perhaps you shouldn’t instantly rebound hard enough to get whiplash. ACTUAL KING OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD: Damn, you’re absolutely right. (much later) ACTUAL KING OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD: Hey, I apologize for hitting on you before. That was really unclassy of me. ALOY: We’re cool. Just don’t let it happen again.
EVIL SPARTAN VOICED BY CRISPIN FUCKING FREEMAN: HRRRGHH I HATE THIS WOMAN IN THE DEPTHS OF MY BEING AND YET SHE IS SO POWERFUL AND MAGNIFICENT THAT I MUST BECOME OBSESSED WITH SNARING HER AND FANTASIZE ABOUT HOW WE ARE DESTINED TO DESTROY EACH OTHER HRRRGH RRGGGHH ALOY: You’re being an obstacle, you inadequate scrub. *stab*
CUTE ENGINEER: Your tech-savviness is painfully charming. I am dazzled despite myself. ALOY: Your enormous weapon is great for killing all kinds of things. Really nice work! CUTE ENGINEER: I may be a fiercely independent isolationist, but please come back and see me lots. ALOY: Probably not. Got stuff to do. CUTE ENGINEER: Well, don’t mind me if I accidentally turn up to fight and possibly die for you at that one big battle. *_____* ALOY: Reinforcements are always appreciated!
I don’t know if this might be called a canon asexual character. I think you could spin it that way if you wanted to, but I also think that a character shouldn’t have to be asexual in order to just have rational priorities and to thus understandably rate flirting/romance/hookups as really low on the list compared to genocide and world-ending. I really, really like both explanations. I LOVE the lack of an obligatory romance. I EXTRA LOVE how they deliberately included all those characters who crush so hard on Aloy so that she can be completely unconcerned about their dokidoki. I FUCKING ADORE THIS GAME TO PIECES. NUMBER ONE NON-ANIME WAIFU. WILL NOT PRINT ON A DAKIMAKURA COVER BECAUSE I RESPECT ITS UNIQUE INTERESTS AND LIFE AMBITIONS. MY HEART~~~~~ TTT_____TTT
you have no taste in characters. You would choose a flat chested girl to draw over a goddess like orihime? No wonder your art sucks it lacks any taste of the princess
Yeah I would because at the end of the day it’s my art and what I draw. If you don’t like it then that’s your own problem. I’m not here to debate over which female character is better in a series and cater to your needs and draw your 2D waifu. If you don’t like how I draw things then pick up a pencil and do it yourself. You like orihime? That’s fine by me but don’t come at me all upset just because I don’t like your “princess” and expect me to draw her.
Please don’t make assumptions. I’m not your “waifu.”
Something has been bothering me for the past 6+ months, and I’d like to get it off my chest. Please feel free to scroll past and enjoy my blog posts on fashion, gardens, and cats ^^
If someone has a Japanese last name, and they tell you that their family has lived in the US since before WWII, please don’t ask them if they speak Japanese, or why Japanese women do their makeup a certain way, or what they think of Shinzo Abe’s XXXX policy… It may also be a good idea not to badger them about why they don’t speak Japanese, and why they should speak Japanese. Here’s the thing: many Japanese-Americans aren’t Japanese nationals. We may not know or care about Japanese national’s views on weight or Japanese politics. We also most certainly do not fit your idea of what a Japanese woman should be.
Growing up as a half white, half Japanese girl in Hawaii, I was always told that I “looked haole” or white. I was teased by my family and friends for my pale skin. But on the continental United States it has been different. It’s as if some people only see me for my Japanese name and nothing else. They expect me to fit into their idea of what a Japanese woman should be. But here’s the thing: I’m Japanese-American. I’m not your “waifu.” I’m ethnically Japanese, but I’m American. My great-grandparents watched Pearl Harbor get bombed from their little house in Ewa. As a child, my grandma watched the young men in her camp leave to join the 442nd, never to return.
No one in my family speaks Japanese anymore. The women in my family are outspoken and loud. We won’t make you a bento or rub your back if you command us to. We are not compliant, timid women. We aren’t your “waifu.”
What bothered me the most was that most of these experiences on the Mainland were from interactions with men from other ethnic minorities. Please: out of all of the craziness that we go through, you should at least understand what it’s like to have negative stereotypes. Please don’t perpetuate them.
Um, aló? Am I writing this in the right place? Hope so. This is somewhat difficult, as I am from Argentina (que raro se siente no hablar en español :v) and do not speak English well xd (thank you, blessed google translator). What I wanted to say is that I love your art, and every great video you upload (besides that are UsUk, my OTP, my soul, my oxygen (? Owo) the point is, I really admire it, and I consider you my waifu/husbando <3
OH MY GOODNESS thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and say such nice things!! i can be ur dad instead tho LOL
So, Kimi No Na Wa/Your name was released in my country. I got the chance, went out to the nearest cinema and watched it.I avoided temptations online because I know, that these kinds of movie MUST be watch in the cinema.
Anyways time for the actual review. [SPOILER: If you haven’t see the movie FORGET READING THIS. LOL]
Note: Some of the things I wrote has my own interpretation on why is this or that is like that.
Part 1: Body Swapping + Primary Clues
At first, I was kinda expecting a 5cm pattern plus a body exchange or what ever you call it. Then as the movie progress I kinda noticed one thing when they started exchanging memo. Why can’t you just call Mitsuha/Taki? With that in my mind I started to wonder, ARE THEY IN THE SAME TIMELINE? Because when you think about it, the first few scenes of body swapping, they just kept putting out memo’s and that gave me a clue that I know that they’re not in the same timeline.
Part 2: Rewriting History
Cont. When Taki started to call Mitsuha, I knew that I can conclude that they’re not in the same timeline. Why? Because the movie keeps portraying that they always have their phone to keep intouch, and when they actually tried to call each other. The call just won’t connect.
Revalations Time: So Taki decided to meet Mitsuha in person. That’s the time I felt that something was off. To the people that lives near to that place, why do they talk like they haven’t gone to that place before? From there, I first started to think, are they in the same universe?
When they reached itomori(correct me if I’m wrong if that’s what the place is called), When I first saw the caution tape that when I suddenly react like “OMGHAD NO NO F*CK F*CK F*CK” I know that it will all connect from here. The place was obliterated and the part where they woke up crying that’s the time where Mitsuha was crying due to the fact that at one part of the movie she is already encountering this.
When we got to Mitsuha’s POV and got to that part, I felt a sudden chill.
Part 3: THE ACTUAL REWRITTING HISTORY PART
When Taki’s memo’s are vanishing, History is already rewriting itself. Why is Taki’s Memory fading, why can’t he remember Mitsuha, because history is already rewriting from the moment they saw Mitsuha’s name in the names of the people who died in the event. And all it takes to connect all of this is for Taki to reach that place to trigger the checkpoint once more.
I forgot to add: The fact that Mitsuha’s grandmother said that He’s dreaming already gives away that history is already being rewritten.
Part 4: Feels
I almost end up crying like an a**hole from this point.
When they finally synched and talk to each other, from this point on everything is now connected and the final act is yet to be carried out.
At first I thought it was going to fail, that what ever you do, you can’t change the present. That all my points up there are just my assumption(BECAUSE I DON’T TO ADD MY LIST OF DEAD WAIFUS)
But to my thanks Makoto, you almost made me depressed as f*ck.
Part 5: MAKOTO ALMOST PULLED A 5CM ENDING.
During the last parts of the movie, the movie will made you think that it will end sad for the viewer atleast, that they won’t be able to remember/ recognize each other. But alas Makoto didn’t made it that way, Taki and Mitsuha met at somepoint and recognized the things they are searching for, longing that “empty” feeling of searching for that “something”.
Story: I’ll give it a 8.7/10
The music is also one of the main roles that gives the scenes alive. And they actually pull it well.
note: I’m still listening to Mitsuha no Theme lmao while writing this post.
I’m not sure if it’s just me but I know there’s is mini parts that the in-betweens are more like to show in a given scene. But given by the pace the movie goes, it’s kinda unoticeable.
Overall: I really like the movie, It reestablished a point that I think i remember it was from interstellar that love is something that can transcend through time and space or things that goes inline with that but I really appreciate the movie that, if only I have free time I would watch it in the cinemas once again.
