I have to disagree with the previous anon, I mean I get why people think that ereri can't be canon. That is a possibility. But look at all the official art, The ereri novel created by Isayama himself plus all the hints in the manga. Why would they all exist if there wouldn't be a chance? I think that there is a chance that it will become canon, I just don't know how big it is. We need to believe 🙏

Anonymous said: I’m aware that Ereri will never be canon, and at this point, has to be one of the most sunken ships in this fandom. It pains me to admit this sad truth and I don’t like to be pessimistic about my otp because I love Ereri so much it hurts. But I have to face reality. BUT. I would AT LEAST want Isayama to make them interact more. I would beg for one more touching moment between them. Shake hands, give each other a friendly hug Idk just let them PLEASE TALK because they never do. :’(

Anonymous said: do you think isayama will give ereri a shot to be canon?

I had several asks regarding the same thing both here and on my main, so I’m putting them together. This seems to be a popular subject atm :P. (There was a 4th one but I won’t post it since it wasn’t appropiate for this blog, but if you read this anon, this response works for you too.)

Well, like I was saying the other day, this shows how the opinions are divided lol.

But that’s alright. There’s people who want to believe it can be canon. And the possibility is still there. As long as they are both alive, there’s a chance! 

And there’s also people who think that it’s not possible for a manga like this to make any ship canon. We have to always remember what kind of manga SnK is, and it’s definitely not a romance focused one. And that point of view is perfectly valid too.

And what do I think? Well… it depends on the day. Some days when I re-read or re-watch their interactions, and all the canon stuff, visual novel, interviews, etc… I think it might definitely be possible for them to get somewhere. But then, I also am up to date with the recent chapters, interviews with Isayama saying he wants to end the manga as soon as possible, and things like that… and I think that there might not be enough time for it, or simply Isayama won’t take the time to focus on something like that. I really don’t know!

On top of that I don’t want to be dissapointed, so I always try to not expect anything to not have my heart broken later, especially with ships.

But I have to disagree with the statment saying that Ereri is one of the most sunken ships in this fandom… I don’t see it like that at all! In canon, they’re still in good terms even if they went through a very difficult situation, and in fandom, is still the most popular ship!

The only problem is that because of how the manga has progressed, it’s been a long time since they had any meaningful interaction. And if we look at the anime, we have the same situation but in reverse: it’s going to be a while until their next moments get animated. So right now things are a bit slow in that sense. But trust me, once we get to the good stuff, the fandom will be all over it again ^^.

But well, whatever it happens, remember that it’s not good to obsess about any ship being canon. What makes Ereri great, it’s not only what happens in the manga. I’m very thankful to Isayama for creating this amazing story and characters! But the fandom made them even better, with their stories, art, headcanons, etc. The Ereri we love is going to keep existing no matter what happens on Isayama’s manga.

Like I was saying to a friend the other day, SnK is just a story, like any other. But there are thousands of stories out there where Eren and Levi are together and happy, really good stories! The only difference is that they’re not official, but at the end of the day, does that even matter that much? Both are just stories. As long as they bring you happiness, they’re as good as any official stuff for me ;).

These past two months have been wild but a complete blessing.
To my followers, new and old. Thank you so much for continuing to support my art! <3 You guys are the reason I’m motivated to keep drawing everyday ^_^
Thank you to the skk discord server, for making me laugh and filling my days with such warmth and kindness. I love you all so, so much. 
I will continue to work hard for you guys!  がんばります~

Your favorite-characters post lists Margaret from Henry VI as one of your three favorite Shakespeare characters, but though I tracked down your posts on Edmund and Benvolio (and Regan), all of which are epic, I can't find any lengthy posts on Margaret, in any tag. So, whatcha like about her?

So unfortunately I don’t have time for anything really lengthy atm (my critical survey is due in two days and I’m jumping on a plane back to the States literally the day after that) but here’s the short version: 

Margaret is a badass. She appears in four different plays, starting at the end of 1H6 and right from the start she’s not taking anybody’s bullshit. Suffolk captures her in battle and instead of being being remotely frightened by this man with a sword who is standing there talking to himself (the scene is hilarious, read it if you never have) she’s just like “Are you gonna ransom me or what? I’m not going to stand here all day.” And Suffolk is so struck by her and how beautiful and fiery she is that he falls in love with her on the fucking spot. And I mean, really who can blame him?

So to make a really long story really short, Suffolk’s descriptions of Margaret are so captivating that he persuades the goddamn king of England to marry her without having even seen her and without her having a dowry and as soon as she crosses the ocean she starts to fucking dominate. To be fair, dominating Henry isn’t hard because he really just wants to sit around reading his Bible instead of ruling, but Margaret also has to contend with the whole court mocking her because she didn’t come from a rich family, and she takes literally none of their crap–she smacks the Duchess of Gloucester in the fucking face when she’s had enough of her high and mightiness, and personally I like to imagine Suffolk standing in the background, fucking beaming just like “That’s my girl.”

Okay, really quickly, Suffolk: Suffolk is a weird guy. He’s kind of nasty and slimy and the only thing he does with any consistency is love Margaret so hard he can’t even see straight. When he’s finally banished at the end of 2H6 it’s one of the saddest scenes in the whole fucking cycle. Look at the way they talk to each other: 

Queen Margaret. O, let me entreat thee cease. Give me thy hand,
That I may dew it with my mournful tears;
Nor let the rain of heaven wet this place, 
To wash away my woful monuments.
O, could this kiss be printed in thy hand,
That thou mightst think upon these by the seal,
Through whom a thousand sighs are breathed for thee!
So, get thee gone, that I may know my grief; 
‘Tis but surmised whiles thou art standing by,
As one that surfeits thinking on a want.
I will repeal thee, or, be well assured,
Adventure to be banished myself:
And banished I am, if but from thee. 
Go; speak not to me; even now be gone.
O, go not yet! Even thus two friends condemn’d
Embrace and kiss and take ten thousand leaves,
Loather a hundred times to part than die.
Yet now farewell; and farewell life with thee!

Earl of Suffolk. Thus is poor Suffolk ten times banished;
Once by the king, and three times thrice by thee.
‘Tis not the land I care for, wert thou thence;
A wilderness is populous enough,
So Suffolk had thy heavenly company: 
For where thou art, there is the world itself,
With every several pleasure in the world,
And where thou art not, desolation.
I can no more: live thou to joy thy life;
Myself no joy in nought but that thou livest.

Dude, this scene goes on for a while, and it’s fuckin’ heartbreaking. And I think what you have to remember is that Margaret is young when she arrives in England, where nobody wants her and everyone ridicules her, to marry a man who has no real interest in taking care of her, and Suffolk is the only one who’s always been on her side. (There’s a theory floating around that Ned is actually his son, and that’s why Margaret often calls him ‘my son’ instead of ‘our son’ when she’s talking to Henry. I don’t know if I believe this but it makes for a really compelling narrative.) 

But here’s what happens to Suffolk: On his way into exile he’s murdered by pirates and they send his head to Margaret. She enters in 4.4 carrying his head and listen to what she says: 

Queen Margaret. Oft have I heard that grief softens the mind,
And makes it fearful and degenerate;
Think therefore on revenge and cease to weep. 
But who can cease to weep and look on this?
Here may his head lie on my throbbing breast:
But where’s the body that I should embrace?

This is her turning point. From this point forward, Margaret is motherfucking ruthless, and the stuff people call her is insane. She-wolf of France, tiger’s heart wrapt in a woman’s hide, and so on. She fights the wars herself while her useless husband sits at home and she takes absolutely no prisoners. One of my favorite scenes in the whole canon is her torture and murder of York in 3H6, because it’s so deeply disturbing–you can see how tormented she is even as she’s tormenting him. Every drop of pity has dried up in her because the English court has taught her that pity doesn’t get you anywhere, and she’s right–look what happens to her piteous husband at the end of the play. 

But here’s the thing: Margaret comes back for one last encore in Richard III. It’s a total anachronism because she never actually returned to England after losing everything and being exiled, but I think Shakespeare just couldn’t resist bringing her back for one last bow, and dudes, I am so fucking glad he did because she’s the best part of that play. She enters as this mad old woman who has lost everything, and has come back just to watch the people who ruined her suffer. But again, like the scene with York, you can see that it just comes from her own suffering. She rants and raves and throws out some of the best insults in the canon (Thou elvish-mark’d, abortive, rooting hog!), but the most interesting scene by far is the one with the four women together, where they sit and talk about what a fucking mess the men have made of everything. And you get this amazing, precarious moment of camaraderie where Margaret says, “This is going to harden you. Look what it’s done to me.” Here:

Forbear to sleep the nights, and fast the days;
Compare dead happiness with living woe;
Think that thy babes were fairer than they were,
And he that slew them fouler than he is:
Bettering thy loss makes the bad causer worse:
Revolving this will teach thee how to curse.

And I just… Jesus. Margaret may be ruthless and bloodthirsty, but the world has made her that way, and she knows it. In a lot of ways she’s like a female Edmund, and maybe that’s why I love her so much. She’s one of those most dizzyingly complex characters Shakespeare ever wrote, and because she’s in four different plays you just get to know her in such a deep, intimate way. Working on these plays and directing one of my best friends–who is so beautiful and so talented and absolutely brought the role to life–is one of the most cherished Shakespearean experiences I have. Like Suffolk I think Margaret will always be my queen.

Luke knew your sleeping pattern better than he knew his own. Granted, his was often different — shifting across cities and continents until he was constantly chasing the stability of time. His sleeping pattern was sporadic; awake some nights, dead to the world some days. But your sleeping pattern, he knew that by heart. He recognised the shift in your breathing as you wrestled with sheets trying to settle again; he knew the gentle nudge of your nose against his arm, his neck, his back, was a silent indication that you had stirred from your dreams.

Like clockwork your eyes scrunched open somewhere between 4 and 5am every night, stinging as they blinked against their will. Some nights they woke to an empty bed, pillows untouched by the messy curls of Luke’s head, his dreams instead taking place in hotels around the world or in the back of a bus. Other nights your boyfriend lay awake beside you, scrolling through playlists on his phone or rewetching Bojack Horseman on netflix — again. Those nights were among your favourite; his gentle face turning towards you as you wriggled closer and pulled his headphones from the laptop so you could join in. You almost never got beyond one episode, typically smiling yourself to sleep as Luke huffed out little laughs. Some nights he was out cold, and though you enjoyed his company in the dark of the hours just before sunrise, you loved the nights his rest went uninterrupted. His chest rising and falling under blankets, arm tossed above his head and the space against his side ready to be occupied by you once more. Those were your favourite; a perfect opportunity to admire his broad frame without his eyes catching you with a teasing grin. A perfect opportunity, too, to bask in the quiet comfort of his presence after weeks on end without him.

this is the beginning of something longer that my brain just can’t get done atm but i like it so i’m sharing in case i never do

alternate title: this is why we can’t have nice things

steven universe is one of the best, most influential, and progressive children’s shows on television today, and its fandom finds every moment it can to point out shit that’s not there or relevant.

anonymous asked:

I am feeling really depressed atm. All my friends are doing fun stuff and I had to find out they were together by snapchat. I have a feeling that they don't want to hang out with me anymore. I also have a lot of problems at home and I have an anxiety disorder for more than 5 years now. I am so tired and I can't handle it all anymore. Please bring some positivity or send me something to laugh about. I love you

ok I’m gonna give you some tips though because I can’t think of anything funny to respond with
but here’s what I recommend you do (for a short term positive effect):
1. go to sleep early tonight. I’m talking 9:00 or 9:30 pm. have tea before bed or some kind of comfort food. build yourself a blanket fort and read, write, or draw before bed. don’t go on any electronics.
2. wake up at 8 or 9am. make yourself some pancakes. make yourself a good cup of coffee.
3. turn off your cell phone and promise yourself not to check Instagram, Facebook, twitter, or snapchat.
4. go for a walk / a run / or any form of exercise. being outside is energizing and helps clear your head
5. pick one productive thing to do and accomplish that day.
6. focus on yourself that day. don’t focus on what anyone else is doing. this is your day. make it good: go to the beach, watch your favorite tv show, take a bike ride.
wait until Monday to face all these problems. right now they are just causing anxiety and stress. I know how you feel; I know those snapchats are a kick in the guts. why do you need to feel like shit from people who can’t hang out without documenting their every moment?
don’t create problems in your head; lean back and give it time. then, approach one friend and ask her to hang out or organize a hangout, and see how that plays out. if you feel completely left out, then talk with your closest friend in the group and ask her about it in person and see how she responds. consider stepping outside of your friend group; step outside your comfort zone and meet new people. you don’t deserve to feel like shit so decide to be happy. don’t let others rule your happiness
