RAVENCLAW: “The secret is to never lose sight of the simple, everyday miracles in life. Good food, literature, laughter, music, compelling conversation, nature, and art. Look for them in every day, and even when it feels like your whole world is unraveling, you will never be too far from a needle and thread.” –Beau Taplin (Needle & Thread)
I said Andreas not to worry. It’s hard for every athlete and I know he doesn’t want to listen to anybody for now - I go through exactly the same thing every time something goes wrong. It takes some time to realize that you have to move on with your life. I feel truly sorry for him because he was the most stable competitor of the whole tournament, he messed up just one jump - and this particular one jump decided about his lost in the whole event.

Shonda How Many Porn Awards Are You Winning? written by @deenabraun
She’s the Titan. The whole world is at her feet. Awards are pouring in from all over the world. Didn’t she tell us that a while back? What grand writing awards has she won recently?
Oh, I have an idea: Gold statute for GROSS PORN
Got news for you. Scandal sex scenes are GROSS. Vomit-worthy.
Shonda just doesn’t get it. Olitz was first and foremost about LOVE. There is a HUGE difference she doesn’t seem to understand. Hook-ups are NOT love. These recent episodes are downright smut.
And ABC sanctions this?
There is no plausible storyline. No decent development of MAIN characters. No sense about anything other than continuing sex pairings devoid of anything anybody other than herself want to see. They are cringe-worthy and meaningless.
Maybe she simply wants to cater to teeny boppers who don’t know the difference while losing Millions of Adult Fans. Big Mistake. Future undertakings will suffer.
Hey Shonda, I have another idea for you: STOP writing vulgar Sex and start Writing Compelling Storylines.
What type of animes do you dislike the most? Probably all of those Isekai animes that are all the same.
I’m with you there - there are shows that have fun with it (Konosuba), but on the whole, the “everyday guy ends up in a fantasy world” premise is severely overplayed. It’s gotten to the point where I get a little skeptical whenever I hear that a new anime is a light novel adaptation, because so many of those are really bland and wish-fulfillment-y and/or rapidly spiral into harem/imouto/harem-with-imouto territory.
WHERE DWELL THE BRAVE AT HEART.
THEIR DARING, NERVE, AND CHIVALRY SET GRYFFINDORS APART. Compromise where you can. Where you can’t, don’t. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say, “No, you move.”
You deserve a lover who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.
You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.
You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.
You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.
You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry.
I tag everyone. I would mention people specifically but I’ve been gone a while and people’s urls are different now and it’s a whole new world. If you think you’re someone I would have tagged, then I tag you.
I just can't get over how amazing of an actor Bob Morely is. Like in every scene he's in, he just uses his entire body (and his eyes!!) to express himself. I've noticed how does even little things, like pursing his lips or clenching his jaw to really show how Bellamy's feeling in a particular moment. He's just SO GOOD. His talent amazes me.
He really is.
My internet is superslow and sometimes the gifs come in frame by frame, and I kind of love watching the ones of him, where you can see every microexpression on his face. The tiniest little changes and he’s expressing a whole range of emotions. A three second clip and Bellamy’s got a hold world going on in his face.
Bob’s very intense and focused I think. He really inhabits the character. You can see sometimes in the bloopers where the other actors break character and laugh and stuff, but he’s still holding on to part of Bellamy, even as he makes jokes. It’s interesting.
Do you ever feel like the Transformers movies could be so much better if they put them in the hands of a better director? Like, not some oscar winner or arthouse person even, just like, an MCU level director. I know that seems like a tautology but hear me out. That series has so many elements to it now. Like, its got established characters, a distinct aesthetic, a whole world of possibilities for crafting a compelling narrative. If only the fucking scripts and direction made use of it!
Sirius as a dog also looked pretty wolf-ish, made sense to distinguish them visually for when they fight... Also, with regards to special effects, it's easier to make a convincing monster that looks unrecognizable in the real world than to make a convincing computer-animated form that is easily recognizable to us in real life. like you don't look at the movie werewolf and go "That looks nothing like the real thing!" ... Also that creature design is unforgettable in my opinion! what a movie...
Yeah, I like it a lot. @bowtruckle also brought up the distinguishing bit, which is something that makes a lot of sense on screen. That whole scene will be in my heart forever, it’s so classic-monster-horror-movie, it’s even suddenly grainier. I think the creepy design fits right in.
Also, that thing is on the screen for like 30 seconds before it ran into the woods, why is it so much of a problem that it didn’t have enough hair or something
How the hell someone like Miiko ended up as the leader?
She just said that she will speak with us only if we make her food. Seriously, no wonder everything is shitty if your own leader acts like a teen. Is she even serious?
And please, the whole situation with “We are not going to tell the human we can open a portal to her world.” ??? Like? Are? You? Fucking? Serious? People need food. I am pretty sure Erica can understand that they cannot just send her back if they don’t have the resources. The lives of the people are more important than sending somebody through a portal with an option that it may simply not work.
If they wanted to gain Erica’s trust, they should tell her about the portals in the beginning. I don’t like how they are treating her. That’s not how you treat a person. With all the lying and some weird “we don’t really care about your wellbeing/you shouldn’t be here” behavior we see through the episodes I am not surprised someone like Ashkore appeared to fuck shit up.
He said the Guard lied to him.
If the writing would be a little more serious I could be expecting the main character to become a villain of the story. (because lets be serious, right now Ash is nothing more than a Trickster with a fancy armor and a wish to bring some chaos to Eel)
