this gave me so many feelings

This clip gave me so many Chris and Sana feels. 

We never get to see on screen how Chris and Sana meet. We just know it was in their German class. I can imagine that Chris probably sat down next to Sana and turned to Sana being all “Can I ask you a question?” And Sana thinking “here we go again” probably expecting the normal questions “why are you wearing a hijab?”, “did you family force you?”, “Do.. you.. speak.. Norwegian?” etc.  but instead Chris gives her the biggest smile possible and asks her if she wants to join her russbuss. Sana is probably a little taken-back at first like still excepting some weird offensive question about if she is even allowed to be russ. “Sure, who is in it?” Chris’ smile lights up and gets even bigger “Me, You and Vilde Lien”. 

“Only three people?” Sana asks
“So far” Chris responds
“Okay,” Sana is glad she joined these losers needs her guidance. Not that she isn’t a loser herself.
“Good, now do you understand any of this German shit”

4x13 gave me feelings I haven’t truly felt since 2x16. 

Don’t get me wrong, many of my absolute favourite episodes have happened since then, and I have LOVED so many of them, but there’s just something about 2x16 and 4x13 that’s different and beautiful and … special.

I ache

I can’t describe it. I didn’t think I would ever feel this way after watching an episode of The 100 again after what 2x16 did to me, but Jason Rothenberg just proved that it really was possible after all.

Important updates no one cares about that aren't important

I’ve been running around all morning, but I also managed to sneak in a wax appointment and I’m now officially vacation-ready. I mean, I’m not packed or anything. Haha! Not even close. That’s a whole other can of worms. I did have my legs waxed, gave myself a slapdash mani-pedi and had my roots done this week so I’m presentable. Narrowing down my shoe wardrobe for five days in Atlanta plus a wedding is nearly impossible. Someone pack for me.

In other news, I got the projector I asked for for my birthday. That is pretty awesome and it means I will be having more movie nights this summer. Can’t wait. I think I should have a kid-friendly one next. I’d like the whole family to be there.

I saw a life-changing mascara tutorial yesterday and I feel like a new woman. This lady put on so many layers of mascara and I never do that. I’m going to Tammy Faye Baker that shit from here on out.

I owe people letters from my April letter writing thing and I haven’t forgotten. I just need to set aside a chunk of time and get those out.

If you could change one (1) thing about the Supergirl finale what would it be?

Hi Anon.

I hope you are doing well today. 

I’ll pick some highlights of the finale along with some aspects I disliked. They relate to my answer. 

Highlights:

1. The Lena Luthor Scenes (that’s a highlight of any episode). I enjoyed her interaction with Lillian, since I find that dynamic really interesting. 

Also, she remained true to Kara (as always) by deferring control of the weapon to her bezzie mate. I felt that scene was really important and gave me so many SuperCorp feelings. Sidenote: I love Lena with her hair down.

2.The Super versus Super Fight Scene (really all the actions sequences were cool). I was initially hesitant about Clark showing up at this point in the season, but the fight scene was really dramatic and won me over. 

I thought that Kara being stronger than him was a nice nod to everything she’s been through as a character (emotionally/circumstantially) that contributed to her own inner strength as well as her Kryptonian strength.

Clark was also so supportive of his cousin being Earth’s champion and fighting Rhea. I appreciated that his part in this episode furthered Kara’s significance, rather than minimizing it.

3. Mon El Leaving. I don’t think this needs explanation…(I didn’t want to use a karamel gif, so I used this one. The Lion King is a great movie)

4. There are some more, but those are the main one’s. 

Dislikes 

Originally posted by kendrickhier

1. Kara giving her mother’s necklace to Mon El. It was honestly upsetting. Here’s a post I made about it (x). There are some nice additions in the reblogs by other users. 

2. How Mon El left. The ending with the necklace seemed to imply Mon El would be back, since he has the necklace which seems important now.

3. Kara didn’t seem to consider what she was doing to the daxamites. I expected to see her hesitate over initiating the lead gas device, but she did it rather quickly. I don’t feel that was in character for her. The Supers are known for their strict no kill policy…

4. Mon El’s scenes in general this episode didn’t provide anything to the plot, imo. At least in Ace Reporter, he provided some comedic relief and was more bearable. In this episode, he expressed misogynistic views and further reinforced he hasn’t changed as a person (by using ‘will’ as opposed to ‘had’ when speaking to Kara about becoming a better person.) 

Therefore, to answer your question: I would’ve written Mon El out of the series in a clear way, so the audience knows he will not be coming back to Supergirl.

I don’t necessarily mean death, but that would work. My issue is that his departure seems to imply he will eventually come back to Kara due to that necklace flashback.  

Mon El’s leaving in this manner wouldn’t affect my highlights of the episodes (those noticeably don’t include him) and would fix a lot of my dislikes. 

Thank you for your question, Anon! :-)

Shine

flicking ashes
out into the street,
strolling friends extolling
upon the many virtues of wine,
smiling, joking, laughing, prying,
first time in a long while feeling fine,
holding hands, making moments mine,
sun trickling astride concrete corners lying
heavy on the horizon, oh what a lovely light,
shades amber and gold, so heavy on the drama,
bright and low, basking us in deep in karma,
I take a drag, burn down the very last jack,
toss away the pack carelessly, callously,
casually place his arms around me,
take a big bow, conclude the show,
gave ‘em a lift home, driving slow,
till it’s time for the day to go,
though even in the dark,
our fingers entwined,
we shine, we live,
we glow.

Here’s the thing for me. About those scenes with Merle and “John.”

At the start, I couldn’t help but feel a little annoyed that Clint wasn’t asking different questions. Travis clearly had the same thoughts I did–tactically, Merle was playing it poorly. He gave more information than he needed and asked vague questions that didn’t yield practical intel on how to fight the Hunger. 

If it had been Taako, he’d have asked clever questions and been focused on getting info out of the Hunger, on besting it. If it had been Magnus, he would have straight up asked, “how do we kill you” and likely learned at least something from that. But this wasn’t Taako’s or Magnus’s role to play. 

Merle was approaching parley the way it was meant to be approached. Not as a warrior looking for a way to kill the Hunger, but as a diplomat trying to understand it. He approached it with an open mind. To the point where he was eventually able to ask “are you my friend?” 

He asked that of this nightmare entity, this thing that’s caused so much death and suffering–that’s killed him dozens of times. Maybe he’s just that able to open his heart. Or maybe despite the religious ideals he tries to project as a cleric, he’s someone who–whether the person in question is a human, or a god, or a sinister consuming force—just wants people to like him. 

Whatever the reason, he was able to look at the Hunger and try to reason with it. To talk to it earnestly about the value of life, and hope.

It didn’t listen. And when it didn’t listen, I actually believe Merle was disappointed. That for a moment he had hoped the Hunger could be better. Instead, he told the Hunger off, and said he didn’t want to see him anymore. 

And the Hunger is sad. For the first time in who even can guess how long, the Hunger feels sorrow, and regret. Because for a moment he had a friend, and then he lost that friend. Because of his own actions.

Merle didn’t learn how to kill the Hunger, he didn’t learn any information that could help them slow it down or get to the Light of Creation faster. But what he did hurt it more than any weapon ever could. 

Imagine tho

Baby Groot keeping Yondu’s Ravager badge. Baby Groot giving the badge to Peter a few days after the funeral, and then saying: “He was Groot.”

Let’s talk about Poe Dameron for a minute. Not the fandom created “flirty, cocky smart mouth” Poe Dameron, but the real and incredibly interesting Poe Dameron.

This is a man who risks his own life, dives back into the line of fire, in order to save someone who got left behind. He willingly runs back to rescue Threepio when the latter can’t keep up in Issue #12 (or #13, I can’t remember which) and literally picks Threepio up and throws him over his shoulder.

This is a man who is so dedicated to the cause, that even Leia Organa, Queen of Dedicated, comments that she sometimes worries “what that dedication may cost him.”

This is a man whose enemy makes the comment that he “has” to save everyone, and it’s true. Poe wants/needs to save everyone, and when he can’t? It breaks his heart:

This is a man who went through physical torture long before he went through mental torture under the hands of Kylo Ren. He endured the physical torture for an undocumented amount of time without breaking. And under the imminent threat of mental torture, all he says is “The Resistance is not intimidated by you.” 

Poe is the man who broke regulation to find out what the First Order what was up to after a close friend of his was killed in a battle and the New Republic wouldn’t do anything about it (which led to him joining the Resistance). This is the man who couldn’t even voice the possibility of BB-8 possibly being destroyed. 

And above all, he’s loyal. Extremely loyal. To his family, to the cause, to Leia, to his squadron, to his droid. He goes back to Jakku for BB-8, and you can bet that even if BB-8 hadn’t had the map, Poe would have still gone back for it. He hates not being able to trust his squadron, he gets openly frustrated (even with BB-8) after realizing that there could be a traitor in his squadron*

He gets even more frustrated and upset when both BB-8 and Threepio “sacrifice” themselves so he can escape with a droid that may or may not have information regarding Snoke, and can’t believe that it’s “gotten to this point.” 

(literally don’t even get me started on that one)

Poe Dameron is literally such an interesting character and only gets more and more complex the more we learn about him. And this is all just from: one movie, 12 (or 13) comic book issues, and a short story.

I honestly can’t wait to see what they have in store next for his character.

*after a few issues of optimistically hoping that his and BB-8′s suspicions were wrong about there being a traitor.

What do you want to be in your next life?
What do you want to be in your next life?

- Hey, what do you want to be in your next life?

- Uh… what about you?

- In my next life, I want to be me, and meet you again.

- Stupid.’’

Since i havent seen anyone talk about this i think i would just like to point out that while yuuri is skating georgi is wearing this expression

Do you know why?

Because he understands

He understands that while yuuri is skating Yuri on Ice he is dedicating it to victor, his love for him, and is thinking of all the moments they have spent together and how victor has helped him so much from how he was last year. He wore the same expression while michele is skating because he knew he was skating because of his love for sara.

But georgi isnt the only one who noticed.

The commentators, the other skaters, mila, and im pretty sure even yakov knew that yuuri was skating because of his love for victor, some more so than others. What im saying is that people know and acknowledge that yuuri really loves victor and that he dedicated his entire FS to their relationship and how he has grown from it.

anonymous asked:

So I reading chapter 90 and just WOW!!!! Is all I have to say. I love that Deku says it can't be anyone but Kirishima. But can you explain that a little more please! But only if you have time.

The timestamp on this ask tells me I’ve been thinking about it for eight hours and right this moment I just decided, fuck it, the day after the anniversary sounds like a perfect moment to lose my shit over chapter 90 again, let’s do this

So the short answer in case you don’t have time for a trip through ninety chapters of the bnha manga is, Kirishima has with Bakugou a relationship unlike nearly anyone else, based on mutual trust and faith in each other’s strength and the firm understanding that neither of them is putting themselves above the other ever, and that made it so that in the group of people present at the moment Kirishima was the only one Bakugou would have willingly accepted help from, so that’s why it had to be him 

That’s some great foundation for a mutually respectful relationship if I’ve ever seen one and my heart weeps a lot 

BUT I said I was gonna cry about this properly so let’s do this let’s just go back to the beginning of the manga anon my pal I need you to understand why everything about that chapter has me in tears still even though it’s been a year and probably a thousand read-through’s

(this is seriously image heavy I’m so sorry oops)

Keep reading

(1) Hi Viria, I hope you are well :) I am sorry to bother you with this, but it's really important for me, and I wanted to share it with you. It'll be long and kinda sad at first, but it gets better, trust me. I'm a 23 y/o latina art student. When I was a baby, my mom left my dad and remarried, and my little sister was born when I was 10. She is the light of my life and I love her to no end. Our mom, however, had had and undiagnosed and untreated mental illness for years, and one day

(2) during a severe crisis she hurt us really bad. I was 12. She was taken away to a psychiatric hospital and Child Services prohibited her from ever getting near us again. Since then, I have been taking care of my little sister and practically raised her while my stepdad worked 2-3 shifts to afford our education and payment for my mom’s hospital, living and meds. He was always working and I took full responsibility for my sis. As you can imagine, even though I loved her with my life, 

 (3) the situation was very stressful and exhausting for me. By the time I was 15, I looked every bit a teen mom. One particularly hard night when my little sis had been crying about mom, I couldn’t sleep. So I turned to something that calmed me: the Harry Potter books. I read them online, and somehow ended up searching for HP fanart. That was the night I stumbled upon your DA account. And boy, did I love it! I know back in 2011 your skills weren’t what they are now,

(4) but I was blown away, and what’s more, I felt inspired to draw. I had never tried to make any art before; it wasn’t “my thing”. But that night, you inspired me. As time went by I kept drawing and closely followed your improvements. Your art was so relaxing, calming, and inspiring, that it really helped me during hard times. You kinda dragged me into all the cool fandoms, series and animes, and I found life to be far more bearable with so many awesome things to love and think about.

(5) Your DA and Tumblr were some sort of safe sapce for me. It always cheered me up and gave me joy, peace, inspiration. When the time came, I choose to study Art at college. It turned out you did too, and you kept up all the good stuff in your blogs. Weirdly enough, I kept feeling a sense of pride whenever you improved and got better. I was so strange that you were so so far away and didn’t even know I existed but you helped me so much.

(6) I got accepted at my country’s top University to study Fine Arts; I moved cities and took my sister with me; she grew into a wonderful, sensible, peaceful child, and her presence motivated me to be the best version of myself, while your art motivated me to keep expanding my academic/artistic abilities. Life was hard but good at college, and I had incredible opportunities. I am graduating this spring with an advanced studies specialization, and was recently hired to work at

(7) of a movie. It’s like living a dream. And tonight, just a couple hours ago, the most incredible thing happened. After dinner, my little sis came to me, phone in hand, and said “Hey Ana, you won’t believe what I found. There’s this girl who makes amazing art of all the fandoms you’re in. Her drawings are gorgeous and she has so many!”. She showed me your tumblr. I wanted to laugh and cry. She was amazed when she saw your old drawings and your current ones; speechless.

(8) She fell in love, and you know what? Immediatly after, she went to draw. She’s been doing so the past hours. I know this was offensively long, but Viria, I needed to thank you for what you did. Your art has always been SO much more than just digital drawings of fictional characters. It’s been the source of peace, safety and joy that so many of us crave. You have wonderfully impacted and influenced many people across the world with everything you make.

(9) I am so glad you exist and do what you do; you gave me the hobby that grew into my passion, thaught me so much, inspired me beyond belief and most of all, you helped make life more bearable. And now, you have made the same for my sister. Viria, the world wouldn’t be the same without you. You are truly a magnificent light among us, and for your existence and passion I’ll be forever grateful. Thank you, and may you always live the beautiful, happy, awesome life you deserve. Thank you.


I’m not even kidding I was sitting here peacefully chewing sandwich and by the end of these messages the sandwich was too salty so was my cappuccino I swear you got me to tears and now i’m just like

I’m a shaking emotional leaf but thank you so much for writing me! It means so much and i’m so touched and i just wish you and your sister all the best of luck, though it seems like you don’t really need it. Thank you, and I hope life goes wonderfully for you and your family!

“Lost Me…”  

A redraw from November,

 A Happy birthday gift to @therealjacksepticeye ! This dude, seriously. *here comes the cheesy stuff* The first time Jack reblogged my work, you should’ve seen me (the first one was actually this “Lost me” piece! The “original” so to speak) I was jumping around the walls and screaming. You know what this gave me? Courage, a feeling of moving forward! It was a feeling of progress. This is what got me here. Drawing this latest one. It may be different in some ways of color and choice of layout, but it is still growth. Jack was a cause of this. Maybe not the only one, but a big one. Where would I be without him, I don’t know. I met a lot of my good friends because of him, joined the community, and grew with everyone. Its been amazing watching so many artists of all kinds publish work and establish their work. To anyone reading this, grow. Inspire, work, do the cliché stuff I said. Because with work of dedication, you can become who you want to be. Sean, the least I can say, is thank you. Artists of all kinds and I give the biggest of thanks. 


 this was also a mini celebration thing for hitting 400+ watchers on Deviant art ;w; seriously you guys are amazing. 

Discreet(ish) ways to stim

The popularity of fidget toys has caused many schools to ban them.
If you need to stim or fidget during class and you cant be exempt from the ban i have a list of things that might work.

- theres a $24 fidget pen online. It has some of the features of the cubes and you can buy ink refills. I highly doubt a teacher is going to take it away.

- a metal nut. You can spin the metal textured piece around using your thumb. It does make noise so be careful.

- pen caps. Most people chew on pen caps or straws so this shouldnt be too out of the blue.

- fabric bracelets. I have this yellow one with a giant weave texture to it. There’s many ways to stim with this so find a way that works.

- chew necklaces. Classic stim. May not be completely discreet but i dont see these getting banned.

- stress ball. Hide it in your pocket and squeeze when you get frustrated. These have be banned in some schools so be careful.

- diy tangles. A friend gave me a necklace made of out the rubber band loom stuff. It works great as a tangle. Kind of obvious but it works.

- your clothes. There might be a seam that feels nice to rub.

- make up wedges. They have the best texture. Squeeze squeeze.

- mini stuffed animals. Hide in pocket. Instant comfort.

- feathers. Stroking a feather is nice.

Thats all i can come up with. Suggestions are welcomed and you can add more ideas to this post.

- When I think about the horror she (Hope) must have witnessed when Marcel killed those men, it just… 
- Um, no. She didn’t see anything, actually. Marcel swept her away before she could even understand what was going on.

You changed my life in so many ways; You gave me a reason to live, you filled my emptiness and replaced it with so many good things that no one else could’ve wished for. I cannot wish myself anyone better than you. You have made the previous things in my life mean nothing compared to what you have given me. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I still feel that way every single day even if we are arguing with each other from time to time, because I know the truth deep down in my heart. I will always take care of you, look after you and always be there for you through everything.
