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!
as much as i really love twenty one pilots, here are some things i really dislike, mostly regarding the fanbase:
- ‘smol bean’
- ‘ukulele screamo’
- ‘clique as frick’
- ‘fren’ is hella cringey, even when tyler says it
- .:pêøpłê tÿpīñg êvęrÿthįńg łìkė thîš:.
- “DADDY!” comments
- fans thinking top are the only band/artist making real music on the radio
- fans who hate on other fans for being a newer fan, usually the same fans who complain about top being popular
- fans who complain that top don’t play enough old songs live, ignoring the fact that emotional roadshow was literally promoting the album blurryface (i do kinda get that with tour de columbus though, but still they did play a lot of oldies)
- fans who hate on other fans for also liking k-pop groups (i just really don’t get the hate here and i’ve never even tried to listen to k-pop lmao)
- fans who stalk/harass the boys and their families, eg: finding josh’s parents house and taking photos outside of it, even if done respectfully it’s still weird and creepy
- how terrible the pit can be at some shows, pushing, punching, no etiquette whatsoever
- a lot of merch is kinda ugly to me, the designs have gotten better more recently though
who designed the armor in voltron like seriously, who did it?? it’s so non protective you shoot them anywhere between the thigh and the chest and you’re gonna hit someone where it hurts. you could literally land a clean shot on their ass or their stomach jesus christ please protect these people moRE
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.
my self-esteem can never stay high for too long because it is so fragile. one day i feel loved and supported by everyone around me, the next my brain is hyper-focused on the body language and subtle hints people give off that say things like “you bug me,” “i don’t like you as much as i like these other people,” or “i don’t like you as much as i used to.” and each one of those tiny nuances is like a little razor blade, slicing my heart and my self-worth.
I am so hyped to play Before the Storm… Been reblogging like crazy for the past two weeks. The only thing that is bugging me is that, somehow, the voices for Rachel and Chloe sound… almost the same? Am I the only one that noticed?
Lance saying allura is the heart of voltron honestly made me ??? not because it’s not true because he literally explained that she is and she proved it ! I was just confused because for a Long time the writers and crew always said lance was the heart of voltron so i was just ?? did they change their minds ?? but now thinking more on it. i think him and allura are Both the heart of voltron. Lance sees how great and wonderful his teammates are. but because of his insecurities he doesn’t see that in himself. I think lance doesn’t realize how much he really does keep the team together. always motivating them and cheering them on. He might not believe it but he is a heart of voltron
I remember when I was 12 “I Kissed a Girl” came out. It was one of the biggest songs of the year and it left me so utterly confused. Was it okay if I wanted to kiss a girl? Would people know that I might to kiss girls if I sang it? Was wanting to kiss a girl about sex?
The general outrage from some parents, including my own, about the lyrics of the song and the video terrified me even more. It made something that was already confusing and scary for me feel even more sinister and wrong. I grew up hearing the word gay being thrown around as an insult. I knew that some guys like guys and some girls liked girls, but barely knew what “that’s so gay” was actually supposed to mean except that it was an insult and the idea of homosexuality was taboo. I was scared, alone, and resigned to ignore my feelings.
I remember so many of my friends changing the lyrics to “I Kissed a Boy” and it made me feel even more confused. They talked about kissing boys and holding hands and I realized that while I didn’t want to do those things with boys, I wanted to do them with girls. But kissing girls was supposed to mean having sex with girls. And at 12, I wasn’t interested or ready to think about that. I just wanted to hold hands and kiss someone who liked me too like my friends. Liking girls seemed like this inherently sexual thing.
One of the things that bugged me when “In a Heartbeat”, was announced was the response that some individuals had that the characters were too young. As if 12 year olds having their first crush was inherently sexual as long as it wasn’t heterosexual. It was something that plagued me for years, the idea that liking someone of the same gender or not of the “opposite” gender was always supposed to be exclusively sexual and couldn’t be romantic or involve feeling no matter what age you were. Those feelings would never be anything but
al deviancy whether you were a kid or an adult. That romantic and platonic relationships for people who were gay would always be exclusively sexual in some way.
The response of the filmmakers to immediately shoot down those critics and the finished short film gave me something I’d been missing as a scared kid. “In a Heartbeat” captured both the innocence of a first crush and the fear not being accepted by others because it was “wrong”. It was simple in the same way it was complicated. It wasn’t just about a middle school crush. It was about normalizing and not sexualizing being gay. That finding that you might not be straight or that you have feelings for someone of the same gender isn’t inherently sexual. Why should kids having crushes or those feeling be sexualized that way because it’s not heterosexual? Having your first crush and discovering having romantic feelings for someone is scary. And it’s scarier realizing that there are people who think it’s wrong or internalizing the idea of it being wrong, of you being wrong. And it’s terrifying. But there isn’t anything wrong. It’s not any more sexual. It’s normal. And there’s hope that people will accept you and your feeling.
This is just a bunch or rambling but I feel very strongly about this short film and it means so much to me now as an adult.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
I sorta refuse to believe that Rory and Jess hadn’t seen each other in 4 years in the revival. Like Luke and Lorelai have been together all that time, Jess is now friendly with his mom, and he’s close with Luke, so especially with how much Jess has matured I feel like he would make semi regular trips to visit family in Stars Hollow (in just AYITL we see him visiting at least twice) and even if Rory was on the road a lot they had to have seen each other at least once or twice for a holiday or something in the past 4 years
Okay, so as much as I love the humans are horrifying thing, there is one thing that bugs me. It seems like in fiction whenever other beings find out about our history, they end up getting all horrified and bring up the whole “are we worth saving” thing (looking at you 5th element). And that’s a valid point, human history is scary. But it always seems like we’re always the only ones out there like that.
There’s got to be some other race who wars constantly and is no stranger to interspecies violence and who upon reading our files just sort of shrugs and goes “yeah. Same.”
We may be scary but we can’t be the only ones, right?
