they mirror each other

saisai-chan  asked:

imagine someone with a cloning quirk accidentally cloned an army of Baku Jr.s so now Bakugou is surrounded by a massive fluffpile of angry barking tiny doggies who only listen to him

(from this)

and then they nap together b/c Bakugou honestly doesn’t know what to do about this other than to wait it out. the kids walk by and don’t know what they’re looking at

the juniors thought that they were threats. RIP kirishima and kaminari

Voltron Theory: She’s NOT the MOTHER, she’s the SISTER

okay Voltron theory time. So I know a lot of people thought that Acxa was Keith’s mother but after watching this season it seems like she is too close in age and her interactions with him don’t seem motherly at all. But I have a few reasons why she could be his sister.

First off,  we know from this scene in from Season 2 that she is pretty important to the story since she was introduced before all the other Galra ladies. We can assume that she is significant to Keith’s character since she met him, not the other paladins. 

The show even goes out of its way to make Keith have a flashback of this scene in s3 ep6 while Keith and Acxa battle. Both literally pointing out that she was the Galra soldier he met, and making it clear to the audience that their discovery of each other’s identity will be important.

It is also significant to note that Acxa hasn’t killed Keith yet, even though she is a Galra soldier. She lets him get away in their first encounter and their fight in s3 

I don’t know about you, but letting them get away felt very fishy to me.

But this is where the sibling part really comes in, Thace stated in s3 ep1 that all Lotor’s main people aren’t full Galra 

And out off all of Lotor’s Galra ladies, Acxa is the only one who looks human. 

So far the only alien races that resemble humans are literal humans and Alteans (and we know Acxa is not an Altean). And since she is not full galra the only other option is half human-half galra

And we all know who the other half human-half galra character is

plus as people have pointed out, they do look alike. And who knows? They could even be twins, their paths seem to be mirroring each others after all

Klance and mirroring.
So, there’s a thing called “mirroring”. Mirroring is when we start to mirror subconsciously the behavior, whether this is sitting in the same way or doing the same gestures, of a person that we like.
Maybe the fact that Keith and Lance are always mirroring each other is just a coincidence…or maybe not.

let me reiterate this in a separate post: the petals to the metal elevator sequence is PROBABLY my favorite scene in TAZ, followed by Arms Outstretched, and the two scenes are, incidentally, exact beautiful mirrors of each other. In the first, magnus the protector grabs taako and prevents him from falling with his strength alone, merle grabs onto taako to stop himself from falling, above them is an inter-dimensional portal that they are climbing towards. Merle climbs up, taako casts blink, etc. Getting out of that precarious situation is not exactly their best example of team effort. In the second, magnus loses his role as protector and TAAKO grabs HIM and prevents him from falling with his own strength, and merle once again grabs taako, with magic this time, which he didn’t use in the earlier scene and is established to be self-conscious about, and this time it’s not out of instinctual self-preservation, it’s to save his two friends, and this time they are pulling themselves AWAY from another dimension, back to this plane. The spell Taako casts is VERY similar to blink except is more helpful to the others instead of saving his own skin. Merle could have easily not participated, but he ensures they get back safe. And Magnus who is unafraid of death is forced to do nothing but be saved. Had these scenes appeared in anything other than an improvisational DnD podcast, they would have been written with that mirroring intent, but because they ARE in an improvisational DnD podcast YEARS apart from each other, they are just an accidental parallel and that makes it even more beautiful and i could talk about it forever but i have to leave this wendy’s now, anyway i love the boys bye.

Shaving + Moon Phases

The cool thing about the moon is that it’s always there. For subtle magic, all you have to do is combine a mundane task and the moon phase you’re doing it on. Shaving is perfect for this because it’s already a ritual of its own.

🌒  Waxing

Since the waxing moon precedes the full moon, it’s good for new beginnings and spells to draw something toward you. Shaving during this phase is good for wiping the slate clean to welcome new things into your life. After shaving, follow up with a salt scrub that matches your intent.

Basic Salt Scrub Recipe

  • 1 cup sea or epsom salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 5-10 drops essential oil (optional)

Combine the salt and oil in a bowl. Olive oil is a good starter oil that many people already have, but coconut or grapeseed also works. More or less oil may be needed depending on the consistency you prefer.

The essential oils you use change depending on what you want to draw. Lavender is anti-anxiety and helps encourage calm. Patchouli is good for prosperity. Spearmint brings clarity and energizes.

Store in a jar or container of your choice. Unless you add a preservative, and leftovers will need to be refrigerated.

Remember! Bacteria can grow in unpreserved scrubs, even if it looks and smells fine. This makes the scrub less effective and can be bad for your health. If you know you can’t preserve it, lessen wasted product by only making as much as you need for a single use.

🌕 Full Moon

The full moon is, of course, the fullest phase of the moon. This phase is good for major charging and energizing. Because I have issues with chronic pain, I shave during the full moon to draw energy and discourage extremely low spoon days. Now is the time to plan and draw all the good things into your life. Shaving during this phase gets rid of old situations and makes room for new growth.

For a Full Moon Scrub, you can take the previous recipe and add a tablespoon of milk (I use powdered because no one in my house drinks milk) for chemical exfoliation and a few heaping spoonfuls of honey to moisturize and soften your skin. Both are also good for promoting bounty in whatever you wish to fill your life with.

🌖  Waning

The waning moon occurs as the full moon leaves, so it’s good for magic to banish or push things away. Shaving helps cast off whatever is bothering you as you cut through the hair. As you rinse your razor, also rinse away your problems. This is especially good if you haven’t shaved in a while as a result of depression or other issues.

Coffee grounds are a perfect addition to a banishing bath scrub because they banish old situations while also energizing you to move forward. Substitute a portion of the salt in the salt scrub recipe for coffee grounds and add in more salt, coffee, or oil as needed. This is also a good way to recycle grounds from the morning’s coffee.

🌑 New Moon

The new moon is great for when you need a spiritual and emotional deep clean. It’s like shaving during the waning moon, but amplified. You’re not only banishing your problems, but scrubbing the affected area clean of its influence. It’s also good for incurring drastic change in the form of loss. While loss sounds negative, it can include things like getting rid of bad habits or “losing” the funk you’ve been stuck in.

For a Deep Clean scrub, mix a teaspoon of charcoal, a spoonful of lemon juice, and a tablespoon of freshly grated ginger into the salt scrub recipe. Because ginger is warming, you’ll want to add in a small amount at a time and test the mixture on your skin to make sure you don’t go overboard.

IMPORTANT: Some essential oils can interact with medications or physical conditions. Please do you’re own research beforehand to make sure a recipe will give you no reactions. Always do a test patch before applying a new recipe to your body. These recipes are from personal experience, but I’m not a doctor so please don’t assume because it works for me it will be fine for you.

15 things about Ishval that Brotherhood cut out

After rewatching Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood recently, I was once again extremely disappointed at the amount of content the anime cut out when it covered the Ishval war in episode 30. Volume 15 of the manga (which was entirely dedicated to showing the war in detail across four chapters) still remains my favourite volume of the whole series, so I wanted to talk about 15 things that Brotherhood cut out. Some of them are minor scenes and some are more major plot points.

The images I’ve included in this post have been taken directly from the Viz Media manga, as I really dislike the poor quality scanlations of FMA that are out there. I would highly recommend buying Volume 15 for yourself, even if it’s the only volume of FMA you ever own.

The things I’ll be covering are:

  1. Neighbouring country Aerugo’s role in the war
  2. The Ishvalans as people - their lives and strengths
  3. The Rockbells’ extra scenes
  4. The military’s order to kill the Rockbells
  5. Roy, Hughes, and Hawkeye’s extra scenes
  6. Hughes’ extended scenes as a squad captain
  7. Corruption of high-ranking officers and internal assassination
  8. Armstrong’s extra scene
  9. Torture & human experimentation of Ishvalans
  10. Doctor Marcoh & Doctor Knox’s extra scene
  11. Roy’s role as the Hero of Ishval
  12. Scar’s brother’s scenes
  13. Roy’s squad
  14. Children as the victims of the war
  15. The overall portrayal of the war, and how Volume 15 was written/illustrated

** VERY LONG POST UNDER THE CUT, VERY IMAGE HEAVY **

Let’s begin!

Tony Stark: *realizes that his PTSD has led him to put his loved ones in harms way, which he feels so bad about he immediately calls Pepper to say sorry for it*

Bruce Wayne: *doesn’t seem to care that everyone he brands gets killed in prison, actively murders several criminals with no remorse*

Tony Stark: *builds Ultron to make sure the next alien army ‘can’t make it past the bouncer’, isn’t aware that Wanda manipulated him by exploiting his PTSD until it’s too late and outright admits it later*

Bruce Wayne: *plans to murder Superman because he might be a threat one day in the future, isn’t aware Lex manipulated him by exploiting his PTSD until after Superman also exploits his PTSD, albeit accidentally*

Tony Stark: *specifically builds Iron Drones to keep people out of harms way, builds the Hulkbuster to both fight the Hulk and get the Hulk away from people, tries to avoid a fight with other Avengers, evacuates the airport before the fight starts*

Bruce Wayne: *outfits his car and plane with high caliber machine guns specifically to murder people, plans to deal with super powerful monster by bringing through a city filled with innocent people just to get a weapon he could have just picked up and brought to the monster which was on an uninhabited island at the time and didn’t seem to be going anywhere*

Tony Stark: *is aware that his trauma and PTSD is holding him down, is always trying to do the right thing and to keep his personal demons in check, always makes sure to keep others safe as best as he can*

Bruce Wayne: *doesn’t even consider that he’s going too far until Superman accidentally triggers his PTSD, is still perfectly fine with cold blooded murder even after realizing he tried to kill someone who was just trying to save their mother, also nearly kills said mother in explosion.*

MCU fandom: Ugh, Tony is such a villain. so sick of him.

DCEU fandom: Leave Batman Alone!! There is nothing wrong with him!!

furries and anime fans despise each other so much because they have precisely the same vices and sets of black sheep in their communities and they each remind themselves of the darkness festering in their collective communities.

the shut ins and weird obsessionists they got?

they’re in both communities

the bizarre political extremists?

both communities got them

insane stalkers and sexual predators?

you better believe both communities got them

harassers that have seriously creeped out and even attacked voice actors and artists?

ohho you best fuckin believe both communities got them

anime dudes and furry dudes detest each other because it’s like looking in the mirror and they don’t like what they see

🌿✨ Finnish Midsummer Juhannus spells ✨🌿

Juhannus was originally a celebration for Ukko the supreme god of weather and harvest. It was also a time for making magic since the spirit world was more active at the time of the white nights. A loud feasting and drinking brought luck in love as well as a good harvest and kept the evil spirits at bay.

1. Roll in dew

If you roll around naked in a field, your future spouse will appear in your life within a year. Dew was believed to have a healing effect and rolling in it was supposed to make you beautiful and healthy. Earlier, dew was even collected in cloths and pressed into bottles for the year to come.

2. Put a spell on a field

Find a four-leafed clover from the yard in the evening. Hide the clover under your shirt, next to your bosom. When the clock strikes midnight, let your hair loose and run to the field. Go around the field three times. When the person of your fancy will eat bread made out of the wheat from that specific field, they will fall in love with you.

3. Collect seven flowers

Collect seven different types of flowers from as many meadows. When going to bed, put the bouquet underneath your pillow. You will see “the one” in your dream. Flowers and plants have an important role in Midsummer celebrations. Previously, it was common to scatter tree leaves on the floors and build tree houses in the yards. Even cows were decorated with garlands, so as to secure a good year for the cattle and milk production.

4. Sweep naked

Sweep your bedroom floor naked, just a red thread tied around your waist, and the ghost of your love will greet you.

5. Tie a sauna whisk, vihta

Vihtas are always made for the Midsummer sauna. They are usually made out of birch as its fresh leaves are soft and have a lovely fragrance. For your magic spell, the Midsummer bath whisk should be made out of eight different tree and flower types. After the sauna, throw the whisk on the roof of the sauna. Climb up after it and see whereto the stem of the whisk points. That is the direction from which your future spouse will come.

6. Make a bonfire

The smoke of the bonfire will turn to the person who will find their spouse next. When the flames start to go out, jump over the bonfire to bring luck in love.

7. Look into a mirror

When you put two mirrors opposite each other on a midsummer night, you can see your future spouse in the reflection of the other.

8. Listen to the first sound

In the wee hours of the night, climb up somewhere high – on a hill, on top of a fell or a big rock. To a place where it is easy to hear surrounding sounds. Your future spouse will come from the same direction as the first sound of the morning. If you hear music, it means an approaching wedding. If you hear a child crying, it is a sign of birth. The number of cuckoo sounds tells how many years you have to wait until you find love.

no offense but the way dan and phil have begun to mirror each other’s actions and words and laugh like the other and are able to communicate without words and have silly playful banter hand in hand with serious insightful discussion and take candid photos of one another and not get tired of living together after more than half a decade and even go as far as to move into a bigger better home in which to spend the rest of their lives is really fuckin adorable
