things like that bug me

I decided to draw this thing based off of a bigger idea I had when the PPG reboot started using memes (so like… right from the beginning). Kids HATE memes/fads when adults or corporations who have no clue what they’re doing or why it was supposed to be cool or funny in the first place use them. ‘Cause then they just suck out your life essence and make you wanna die. So… clearly they should be used as a tool of evil! To destroy children! And what better lame-o to use a tool like that than THIS chimpy lame-o!

Anyway… enjoy/be terrified!

I really appreciate that even though Kara was in a terrible situation, she still answered the phone when Lena called the first time. She could have just as easily let the call go to voicemail (she had every right to do so) but instead she picked up the phone and told Lena that it wasn’t a good time and that she would call her back. Kara’s going through so much in this scene and she feels awful but she still answers the phone instead of ignoring Lena because she’s an extremely caring person and she doesn’t want Lena to feel brushed off. It was a subtle but important way of showing how well Kara knows Lena and I just thought it was a good moment.

Listen…,,..,.Hazel is too young for Frank

So, I was watching Star Vs. The Forces Evil episode Into The Wand and something caught my attention. Lil’ Chauncey, Moon’s war pig-goat pet thing, was in Star’s memories. She remembers him.

 She knows Chauncey died in battle but no specifics on which battle or when. Then we get to The Grandma Room and we see Moon’s tapestry and her poem which I sum it up as: Toffee dun goofed. Toffee is clearly terrified and there have been lots of theories as to why this happened. Most of which tend to be shippy or something else.

But look at Moon’s face. Look at that rage, that pure open hatred. What did he do? What could warrant such open hostility from someone we’ve seen as being so cool and reserved? Then is hit me: Star was alive when this event went down. Because Chauncey died in battle, shown here in this tapestry and Moon is clearly an adult and Star remembers Chauncey. Then I remembered how the royal guards used to babysit Star. Why? Where were the nannies? The caretakers? The royal nurses? They taught her how to fight, how to use a sword and weapons, how to kill an enemy with her bare hands before she ever hit puberty. Why would Queen Butterfly, Mrs. Prim and Proper, allow her only daughter to be cared for and basically raised by guards

Because she felt it was necessary to better protect her young daughter. I’m willing to bet this is Moon unleashing some serious mama bear rage against someone who threatened her very young child. Star was old enough to remember Lil’Chauncey, but perhaps not the attempt on her life or whatever it was Toffee was planning on doing to the royal family. Maybe it was a betrayal on his part since there are so many hints and theories revolving around the two.

(Just as a side note, I am very aware of the Moon/Toffee ship and while I do think it is kind of out there, I also kind of like it too. Unless it ends up being like the Luke/Leia thing like one new major theory proposes. In which case, NOPE.)

I also thought it was strange that Moon and River decided to send their daughter to Earth to better control her powers….without any other supervision except for Glossyrick who they and we all know probably isn’t the best person to be keeping a rein in on Star. It probably had something to do with keeping her from setting the whole kingdom ablaze in glitter and flaming rainbows, but I also feel there was something else to it. While there are no mentions of Toffee after Storm The Castle, Moon is clearly afraid. 

I don’t know if we’re doing the right thing River.

Also, for all of Moon’s faults, she loves her daughter more than anything. Star’s safety is paramount to Moon and even the cleaving of her family’s ancestral wand is no where near as important to her as Star’s safety. 

Oh, I’m always mad. But I’m happy that your safe.

I love this theory because it explains so much: why Moon acts distant but at the same time is a constant presence in her daughter’s life. Moon maybe trying to do what she can to protect her only child while also living up to the very high and difficult position of being a Queen of an entire…planet? Like, she’s trying her best to be a good parent and Queen even if she doesn’t go about it in a way that Star can respond to.

Also, don’t tell me we aren’t going to learn something new on Monday about Moon. Look at this image I found for Page Turner’s preview. She just looks so tired and so sad. This is a woman whose seen some shit, done some things she’s regretted and probably has a lot of dangerous enemies.

All to protect her only child. At least, that’s my theory until canon will most likely disprove it.


EDIT: OK, so…I am both awed by and grateful for all the likes and re-blogs this post has gotten so BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE! XD

           Also, after watching the last few episodes of the season I feel like this sort of at least helps support my theory. There is no proof – yet – I hope – but give what we’ve seen it makes me happy. Moon clearly is worried about Star. She wants her training to progress farther and quicker, there is urgency in her voice and it’s clear that she’s scared. Also, all the magic in the universe is disappearing? Makes me wonder just WHAT that wand even is, or at least what makes it so special if Ludo having half of it means it has negative effects on a universal scale.

           Also? Toffee’s picture comes up on the screen with the corn and everything? Like, Moon, pay the frick attention!        

           Another thing is that while Glossyrick claims to be doing his job to train Star to be a good Queen I still don’t feel…like he’s a good teacher. He plays the vague-advice thing way too much but then he kind of just lets Star do whatever she wants to anyway so…I don’t know if this is the most effective way to train Star since she is still just a young kid and has a hard-enough time paying attention. I don’t know if there is something to it but I don’t like how cavalier he is about things. The final few episodes’ kind of bugged me. Like, dude, this is her child’s future were talking about. She has every right to stick her nose in thank you very much.

           But Moon’s fears and the lesson she learns in this episode tug at the heart strings. This woman has to accept that her young daughter is growing up fast, into a universe that is facing some serious peril and Star will undoubtedly have to fight soon enough. Moon is afraid, the fear is palpable and she wants to make certain that nothing can go wrong. She probably does have some suspicions of what’s causing it but she can’t be certain. Also, Eclipsa? Heck yeah is she going to be important given how frequently she’s been name dropped.

           Things are getting serious in the universe of the show, Moon is afraid and she’s know that Star is going to end up in the middle of it. For a woman who already has so many huge responsibilities on her shoulders and yet she probably feels powerless to protect her only child.

           Gah! The feels!

This is loosely based on the idea that they would find each other in any universe and both just know that they were meant to be. (So, soulmates, I guess…) Enjoy! Thank you for your patience! 1286 words.

Work is good.

Work is that kind of monotonous printing-press process, right now, and it’s good. It’s good, isn’t it? It’s getting him money. It keeps him busy - keeps him up at 6 AM every morning and until 12 at night - and really, that’s all he could ask for.

Other things? Less good.

The feeling that his one-person apartment was a two in a past life, and that the cupboard in his bedroom used to be full of dresses and sunhats and some colour, and maybe something artsy - not like his monotone business suits and dress pants (and that one old t-shirt from his childhood that reads nice mood, or something).

Work is good for the next few months.

Then, even work begins to feel misplaced. As if for all the daily routines he does he’s still missing 5 hours of something that should have been there next to him to begin with. And, yeah, Kurosaki Ichigo has never been a man of fate (or faith, for that matter). But he did grow up seeing ghosts at 3 AM cowering underneath his bed covers so, yeah, he thinks that he can handle a little bit of…

Déjà vu, he could call it. Yet he has a feeling it’s a little more unavoidable.

(Maybe, a little more catastrophic).

.

Déjà vu is still the only explanation he has for why he finds comfort in the wooden beams of a bar a few blocks from his workplace.

It’s on one of those days where the rain mixes with the scent of asphalt to create a heady, warding concussion, one of those days where he feels the burden of something inexplicable. (One of those days is becoming most of those days, but he doesn’t want to title the unexplained just yet).

      He breathes.

There is a tingle of embers under his skin as he walks through the doors, so he thinks that, maybe, the downpour has drenched his nerves, too.

(Or rather, until he catches sight of a 4”8 figure of regal lethality, he realises that he has previously had few embers to compare it to).

She starts a wildfire.

      He sighs.

Present and surprise are separate things on Kenma’s birthday when it comes to Kuroo

the hardest part of my mental illness is like… my room will be messy or ill have to put my laundry away & itll be at the back of my mind constantly & i KNOW that if i clean my room or put my clothes away that ill feel better but… i just cant find the energy to do these things so its like itll bug me endlessly but i cant do anything about it

anonymous asked:

Isn't Hela Loki's daughter in Norse mythology or something?

that is correct.

I assume that you’re talking about “isn’t Hela Loki’s daughter in Norse mythology, what gives in MCU?” though, which is weirdly enough kind of a pet peeve of mine. the MCU, like comics has never particularly hewn to Norse Mythology in…basically any way. basically, comics Asgard borrows a few names and some details and makes their own mythology out of the rest.

I could list several ways in which MCU Asgard diverges from mythological Asgard, but others have done that and I don’t really feel like it right now. but basically trying to use Norse Mythology as a blueprint for MCU Asgard is a pretty futile project. (playing with it in fandom is another animal, but fandom =/= canon, etc. etc.)

but all that aside: given Loki’s age and backstory in the MCU, making Hela his daughter would really…not make a lot of sense.

I went out of my comfort zone today and tried a couple of crickets at Bug Fair.

That is all.

I’ve been thinking about the way fandom (in large vocal factions) will take a character who is just plain bad and claim them, woobify them, sort of make make them Spike from Buffy–when there is no canon evidence for it. Hux and Draco Malfoy are good examples of that. I remember fans claiming Slytherin House circa 2001-2 for a variety of reasons. It seemed cool and edgy to some. Rebellious. And other people saw the nuance that was missing in the books and realized there could be good things about being Slytherin and since that never happened in the books–people made it happen in fandom. And I love that aspect of transformative fan works. I have no issue with people reclaiming villains and making them more interesting or picking up missed opportunities. Because fan works often extend beyond the bounds of canon and become something new.

At the opposite end of the spectrum you sometimes have a generally good character who screws up and suddenly is dead to a lot of fans. They were perfect and now they’re trash. There’s no in between, and weirdly no possible redemption.

Let me be unequivocally clear–I support someone’s right to dislike a character for any reason, to not want to hear about the character, read about them, etc. I don’t support those fans going out of their way to abuse people who like that character. I define this as “I dislike character X. I blacklisted every version of his name and the actor. I will block people who post about him a lot and won’t tag.” VS. calling them out, dog piling, sending them angry messages.

I am oversimplifying complex and varied fan interactions, but I have seen the very black and white, all or nothing, perfect or evil binaries become more entrenched over time. I think it’s bad for fandom and bad for humans. Hux is a creep. I disliked him and don’t want to ship him with anyone, but maybe a chainsaw. I know people who ship him and that’s fine. I get it. I’ve seen it before. I ship and let ship. (I’m not touching race issues here. I don’t have anything helpful to add, but they’re very much a part of the problem sometimes.) There probably is a fic or potential story out there that could redeem Hux and change the way I view him, but I have zero inclination to invest time in that. I spent years reading fics that redeemed Draco though so who knows.

Then there’s the “bad” character who reforms, the anti-hero who does good. The love of those characters makes even more sense to me in this framework. They’re a screw-up who changes and finds compassion, or honor and does the right thing. And we love them for it. It’s like we have permission to accept their flaws and cheer on their good behavior.

I guess I just don’t know what to do with the rubric:

  • evil in canon = shipping gold in fandom
  • good, but screws up = trash forever
  • bad, but reforming = a safe place to expand or interpret with nuance

As a writer I find this odd, because I think it’s antithetical to how stories and characters work. It’s antithetical to healthy relationships with real live people. There are toxic people you may need to cut out of your life and you should if you need to, characters included. You should absolutely cut out people who do things that you can’t live with, but there may also be people who screw up, are penitent, will do better. Maybe having compassion and forgiveness in some circumstances that don’t put you in harm’s way is good for them, but also good for you.

Maybe?
