then i thought some more

AkaYona Chapter 136

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts but I just couldn’t stop thinking about this chapter ever since I saw the first spoilers. I wanted to wait until the whole translation came out, but I have too many feelings and need to share them :P

Please note that this isn’t a deep analysis of the chapter or anything like that, just random thoughts. (I am salty af about some things you have been warned)

So here’s an actual read with the One-Armed Bandit slot machine spread I came up with the other day. You can read the original post with a “how to” by clicking the link. 

You can see that I rolled 2, 2 and 6. The Four of Pentacles didn’t quite fit and/or I didn’t really see how it related to my question. So decided to “step up” one card and that made much more sense, and was definitely something I had hoped for regarding the outcome. 

I’ve got some more thoughts and suggestions though, if you’d like to try it out. 

1. If you have one of those mini versions of tarot decks, then that could be easier and more handy if you don’t have enough space. 
2. You might consider using only 9 cards total. Still three rows, but with only 3 cards in each one. And then use the 6 sided die as a D3:

1-2 = 1
3-4 = 2
5-6 = 3

just quickly slapped some color on a sketch lolol >_<

“it’s been a while, investigator…” / / / haikyuu!! x tokyo ghoul au

I noticed something with the cast of Yuri!!! On Ice. 

Literally, everyone is fucking likable. 

Chris? He was initially thought of to be some sort of sexual harassing pervert but then Episode 10 came along and he’s suddenly seen as a very friendly, shipper-on-deck for Victor and Yuuri and is Victor’s only friend, if their interactions are anything to go by. 

Isabella Yang (JJ’s fiancee) was initially liked for her good looks but then hated straight after after her derisive behaviour towards Yurio and his fangirls but then immediately redeemed herself when it was shown how much she loved JJ, cheering for him even while the audience was shocked by his lacklustre performance and enticed the Canadian crowd to do the same, which they did so almost immediately after getting over the initial shock. 

JJ? He was seen as some arrogant hotshot who needed to put a sock in it but then, come episode 11 and he’s actually fucking human with faults and all and it’s clear that for all the arrogance that he exudes, he loves his homeland, his family and his now-fiancee and is willing to swallow his pride and take his loss in stride. 

I never thought I’d ever come across a series where I literally come out of it not hating at least one of the characters. 

Bless Yuri!!! On Ice. I’ll be so sad when this is over. :(

i had this friend. loud, vivacious, and brimming with energy and colour. her sun-bright smile drew others to her like moths to flame; and yet she could always pick me out from the crowd effortlessly. i wondered how she did that, why she’d pick me over many. 

she was the kind of person you could never look away from for long, but i saw her better from my peripherals. when she lifted her chin, her face would become awash with glowing light; and then she’d laugh about her pale skin, and the ruddy cheeks and dark freckles would appear again, as if they’d momentarily blanked out. when she grew protective, her blue eyes would spark dangerously and burn white; and then she’d blink, and the glint of her glasses would stand in with explanation. 

but i saw her best from the back. when she’d run, her fire-bright curls would flare out behind her like wings.

as flighty as she was, she always came back to me. i wondered why. 

she told me, once. 

one day, before class had started, when i was in the middle of falling asleep in the sunbeam warming my desk, she turned around in her seat to talk to me. she spoke with her whole body, from her waving hands to her bouncing shoulders. 

then she petered off, and settled into stillness. watchfulness. despite all the eyes on her, she only saw me. 

“hey,” she said. “could you look at me for a sec?” 

and when i lifted my head to look at her straight on, she smiled as if she’d found the answer. 

“look at that,” she murmured. “your eyes have halos in them too.”

You’re right, little brother. I can’t forgive you for destroying our hometown. ‘Cause I ain’t gonna let it happen.

Percy makes friends at a college party, but her intentions aren’t what he expects.


“Oh, thanks!” Percy smiles as the girl - Cassie? Casey? He thinks it’s Cassie, but the music was so loud when she introduced herself he couldn’t quite hear - hands him a fresh cup. “Just Coke, right?”

“Yeah,” she says, matching his smile with her own. “Though I still don’t get why you’re not drinking.”

He tries to subtly sniff the drink before taking a sip, just to be sure. It smells okay. “Not a fan,” he says by way of explanation, taking a small sip.

Cassie tags a swig from her own cup, gagging slightly as the vodka hits her throat. “Yeah,” she coughs, “I can - ah, I can understand that.”

He laughs, and she laughs too, and when Percy settles back against the wall she comes and stands next to him. 

She nods out at the crowd and says, “So, what do you think of the party?”

“It’s pretty fun,” he says, which is mostly true. He’d prefer to be back in his dorm, snuggled up in bed with Netflix on in the background and Annabeth curled up beside him. But, as far as college parties go, he thinks this one is all right. The music isn’t terrible, at least. “Although, to be honest, I don’t have that much experience with parties so I’m probably not the best judge.”

Cassie turns to him with a knowing look. “I thought you were shy, hanging out by yourself over here with that brooding expression.”

“Brooding?” he says, lips quirking up.

“Well, you’re not brooding now. But you totally were before.”

“I was not brooding.”

“You were.”

Well… she did know how to open it… (Anna and Remington (my ocs) and 2017) Happy New Year!

Bruh, Mark’s video made me so uncomfortable. He didn’t even acknowledge that Felix dehumanized US. The way he says “felix is NOT an anti-semite” almost sounds like he thinks we’re ridiculous for thinking there’s even a possibility that he is. He’s joking, DUH, lighten up. Sorry not sorry man, but as a jewish person, I am very wary of goyim making jokes about Jews. One doesn’t have to consciously, proudly be racist/anti-semitic to say racist and anti-semitic stuff. I know I can say dumb racist shit that I hadn’t even considered might be fucked up but when it’s pointed out to me I apologize and learn. 

“I’m not even defending the jokes that he made, because even he has apologized for them” alright but you’re also not saying that you believe he went too far, that his jokes were inappropriate, or something like that? That would have been nice and made me trust in Mark’s reaction more. Felix is hurting, and I feel for him a little because being a dumbass doesn’t warrant death threats and “go kill urself”, but also? We are hurting??? Mark doesn’t seem to acknowledge that we’re hurt???? Also his whole intense, pissed demeanor is just off-putting but that’s my own hangup about men talking, and I won’t tone police him. Mark buddy I know you’re trying but you didn’t handle this well. 

But Seán, oh man, his video was comforting to me. l felt that he cared that people, not just Felix, were hurt. He was calm and kind and ready to be like “yo I love this guy but he did something stupid and had to face the repercussions, and tbh that’s fair. Let’s all grow from this.” Thank you, Seán.

hey guys could you say in tags when and why you became a larrie? i’d love to see how you people have found your way here :)

newtina thoughts #1
  • first things first, let’s get the fact that they’re already canonically married with at least (1) child and (1) grandchild and (3) kneazles out of the way
    • like legit married for decades in good old true love fashion like
    • y’all we’re gonna get to watch them fall in love and possibly even mARRIED DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH PAIN THAT PUTS ME IN
    • (also finally, luna lovegood is married to rolf scamander. just. family christmases man. newt and luna. just saying. they would be bffs)
  • anyway, newtina
  • what I love about newtina is how different they are as people, but they complement each other splendidly?
    • like newt has his head in the clouds when he’s thinking about his beasts and tina is incredibly level-headed
    • but they both have the same sense of spirit and also can we talk about their sense of righteousness???
    • newt with his ‘i can’t believe you have a law that disallows you from being friends with no-majs’ and tina with her ‘you abused this child i will punch you’
  • tina is a boss lady tbh just wanted to mention that again in case you had forgotten. like. she walked into high-profile macusa meetings. SEVERAL TIMES. it’s a regular habit of hers. Don’t you just love that?
  • she is every inch as tender hearted as newt
  • possibly every inch as trusting, too, since she brought him and jacob into her house and gave them a room to stay in. like tina honey please
  • they have one hell of a ‘how we met’ story
  • i haven’t talked about the ‘jump i’ve got you’ because i am too weak but like. ’I’VE GOT YOU’????? NEWT THAT IS THE SINGLE-HANDED MOST ROMANTIC THING YOU COULD HAVE SAID TO HER YOU DORK
  • finally, a few very important reminders:
    • newt scamander and his hufflepuff scarf
    • NEWTINA HAIR TUCK MOMENT HELLO??
    • newt really not wanting to say goodbye. that last pause? when he’s boarding the boat? and everyone else has already boarded and the docks have gone from crowded to empty? like?
    • tina’s little skip in the end like she can’t quite believe it
    • that skip was such a perfect lil addition like omg they’re so good together
