think negatively

God I’m almost an adult now and I have one year of school left and I just got slapped with the realization that I don’t have a future and I’ll continue to disappoint my parents because I can’t think of a career that I have the motivation to pursue

Natsu goes absolutely crazy anytime Lucy is in danger. He didn’t want to live and was going to throw his life away fighting zeref because he thought she was dead. It’s canon. 


Mashima drew Natsu getting a boner over Lucy (and only her). Omake or not, whether you like fanservice or not, I don’t give a sh*t.

At the end of the day if Mishima didn’t think it was within Natsu’s character to see Lucy as ‘his’  then he wouldn’t draw it. It’s canon.

Natsu chickened out of confessing but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care. Do people have memory loss of the last 545 chapters of the manga and the character building and moments between the two? 

Expecting to have a shojo moment in a shonen manga is an unrealistic expectation. Compared to other shonen manga’s Mashima has spoiled us rotten for ship moments. Nalu, in particular, got over 40 panels centred around them in the last chapter, so we did pretty well. 

Plus, waxing lyrical about his love for Lucy is OOC for Natsu. In that kind of moment and the vibe of the scene, it wouldn’t happen. 

I am anticipating a short sequel or omake’s that clarify and expand on the ending - Mashima did leave it suspiciously open.

I’m going to do a detailed post later but these are my initial thoughts. 

Oh and before any one messages me saying ‘it depends on how you look at it’ you can save yourself the effort. Anyone can look at something negatively and deny something until their last breath, I’m well aware of this. Hell, if other fandoms have taught me anything, it’s how well people can stick their heads in the sand.

this chapter gave me so many feels okay

Nobody has to agree with me on this since I understand everyone has their own opinion and such, but assuming that all Western artists have ulterior motives when it comes to their interactions with BTS at/after the BBMAs is kind of … unnecessary? 

Sure, I get that is how the industry works and making connections is the way to gain a bigger audience worldwide. But literally claiming every snapchat or collaboration or mention of BTS by another Western artist as the artist being obsequious in order to weasel their way into Eastern culture and reach a wider following makes it come across that you only think BTS are worth the interactions for their money and status. Remember that these Western artists are musicians too, and so, of course, they are going to pay their respects and perhaps try to learn more about BTS, the first Korean pop group in history to make it as nominees, nonetheless win an award on the Billboard Music Awards. That does not mean that they are prying for an opportunity to take advantage of the boys’ fame for their own sake.

Let BTS have their moment. Let them be respected by the artists that we all know they respect without having to assume every little detail. They deserve this time to shine and make an even greater name for themselves in the Western world!

I struggle so much with actually allowing myself to care deeply for ppl. I tend to lock my heart away immediately when I meet someone I share a connection with n tell myself to not get too attached. I think its bc I’ve moved so much n usually everyone eventually leaves me 

I am legit still baffled that we have a hijabi Muslim teenager as a lead and in 8 episodes we have neither seen her go to the mosque once nor have we had a scene during Suhoor OR Iftar. There’s no taraweeh, there’s no POV where Sana gets to show her actual day to day. Our salat was used instead as a mere almost cheap visual device.
Are we really to believe the focus is on Sana when like this a huge part of every Muslim’s life and we’re not seeing even 10 seconds of it? Everyone wants to talk about how revolutionary this representation has been but honestly it really hasn’t? Like no one on here is wiser to Islam than before and more than that I feel it perpetuated more problems than solutions.
No, I don’t believe waiting until the end of the season to hastily tie up loose ends is good story telling or even realistic. Nor does it add gravitas or drama.
It just allows people to play into negative stereotypes and then excuse themselves by saying the show meant for you to be tricked like that. Umm, no.

anonymous asked:

i have nowhere else to complain about this but someone posted an audio post of Arin only somewhat understanding what cisgender meant from like 1 year ago and i hate when people will do anything to make someone look bad

i think ‘only somewhat understanding‘ is a very generous description of that conversation. however, i do still think that it’s a bit unfair to post stuff that’s over a year old, with the sole intention of making arin look bad. there’s no denying that he was absolutely clueless about was cisgender meant in that clip, but since then they’ve talked a lot about trans related topics on the show. they’ve also discussed how terminologies related to lgbt identities have changed over the years, and how they sometimes struggle to keep up. 

i’m not trans though, so it’s not my place to tell people how to feel about this. however, the grumps have also talked about issues that personally affects me (like bisexuality), and been completely wrong about definitions etc. still, even if they’re sometimes a bit (or very) misinformed when it comes to lgbt issues, i’ve never personally felt that they’ve ever had anything other than good intentions. that, plus the fact that they’ve shown that they’ve willing to learn from their mistakes, is what matters to me

People with BPD are like people with third degree burns over 90% of their bodies. Lacking emotional skin, they feel agony at the slightest touch or movement.
