this has always bugged me

Okay, but think about how Callaghan knew to set the fire to steal the microbots that night. Like, on his quest for revenge, was he just going to steal whatever was best from the SFIT showcase that night? Or did he know that the microbots were going to be unveiled?

Because if he knew about the microbots, you know who probably told him? Tadashi. Which would mean Tadashi unknowingly signed his own death sentence, because he confided in his mentor in a moment of pride for his younger brother. And that just breaks my heart.

The game

No, you are not
god’s gift to women.

It’s pitiful
that you need to feel superior,
before you are able to muster
the courage to speak to them.

It’s pitiful
that you play on their insecurities,
to mask your own deficiencies;
that you need to bring them down,
in order for you to feel big enough.

Big enough of what, a man?

Look into the mirror,
tell me what you see.

Even with your slick hair,
your tattoos, your tan,
and your styled goatee.

I don’t care how old you are.

You still look like a boy to me.

Grow up,
do yourself a favour, please.

The game you play has no winners,
and every single girl in the world
will eventually come to see,
there is no way
of satisfying
your fragile
little ego’s
needs.

Your instincts were always to protect me

I think the worst thing about this quote is that Elena is that she thinks that this is about her. That Stefan’s basic instinct belongs to her, but it doesn’t, Stefan’s instinct is to protect people he loves, not just Elena, he acted on instinct when Caroline was almost attacked by Julian and he protected her and died for her, and it’s not just about Steroline, he would’ve done the same for Bonnie or Jeremy and of course Damon, it’s not just about love interests, Stefan would die for the people he cares about, the quote should’ve been Your instincts were always to protect the people you care about

I really think the writers are making her this self centered on purpose.

Random thing that pisses me off

I remember learning in History class about Hernando De Soto ‘discovering’ the Mississippi river. 

I live half a mile from the Mississippi. 

It would be kind of fucking hard to miss. 

Congrats random white dude you ‘discovered’ the hugeass river (4th longest in the world) that cuts halfway through the fucking continent. How’d you do that? By walking until you almost fell into it because again it’s a mile wide in places and cuts halfway through the fucking continent it would be kind of fucking hard to miss. 

And like. 

He records watching Native Americans canoeing along it. But yes sure you discovered it asshole. 

I always just picture him puffing up like “I have discovered this river!” And the Native Americans looking at him funny. 

“What’s the strange white man doing?”

“I don’t know. Just don’t talk to him maybe he’ll leave.” 

That whole bit in history books should be retitiled “random Spanish dude helps murder native population of Peru, later falls into one of the biggest rivers on Earth by accident and dies of fever in a totally deserved stroke of misfortune” 

+1 to minako cause does minato even have a butler outfit? I can never find one

also! I made a twitter account! thanks Lan for putting up w me being a confused idiot. I accidentally made 2 accounts cause I didnt know twitter separates your media stuff?? but i like the other username so I’m gonna try using both (help). I’ll probably end up using this one for art/wips/fandom/etc stuff for now?? but still use this as a main for bigger stuff? idk I’ll figure out how I’m gonna do this but I’ll work it out! I’m moving tmrw and won’t have internet for a bit but we’ll see how this goes!

The problem with redemption arcs is that sooner or later the question has to be asked why Character A deserves a chance to be redeemed but we’re supposed to see Character B as getting their just desserts.

This is one of the major failings of the Buffyverse for me. Neither show really deals with the moral greyness of it or asks the question ‘Why"? The reason it bothers me is that all the redemption arcs put the character at a nadir where they have nowhere to go, it’s only then they seek redemption. Which, OK. But who’s to say Lindsey wouldn’t have turned it around? Or the guy Angel kills in Conviction? Or Warren for that matter?

Warren was a creepy shit who thought of the opposite sex as a commodity for his whims. He was a murderer and an attempted rapist and the show tells us he meets his proper end. As Willow says, she killed him for a reason. That description fits Faith to a T as well, though. Why one and not the other other than Joss likes Eliza?

I’m not saying Warren deserved one or anything, but it’s bothersome that the question isn’t asked. Not only that, but the show then goes to trvialize the actions of the redemption character. We don’t see Tara jokes, we see vulcanologist jokes. We get a rundown of one character’s misdeeds, but the others’ aren’t mentioned outside of a joking context.

At some point, I’d have liked to see a bad guy character turn it around without being smacked down to the point they have nowhere to go but the whitehats.

it irritates me sometimes that beauty and physical attraction can actually play such a big role in relationships. You can meet someone who can have the most wonderful personality that completely compliments you and you share all the same interests, but if you don’t find them physically attractive it’s just not going to work.

Isn’t that kind of messed up?

also okay I see another HP post going around alot that’s like ‘just think of all the kids at the Battle of Hogwarts, all of them will be able to see thestrals now’

no

no that is not how it works

canonically that is not how it works

just -seeing- death won’t suddenly make someone be able to see thestrals, they have to understand it too— that’s why Luna was able to see them before Harry, even though he’d seen his parents die when he was a baby. She understood and accepted the concept long before he did. It took the death of Cedric for him to come to this realization, and therefore be able to see the thestrals.

so yes, more students will be able to see thestrals after the Battle of Hogwarts

but every single one? no, no, no fucking no no no

Secret Six Vol 03 #33 The Darkest House

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, but I really don’t think it’s remotely offensive to think Harry and Louis are interested in men and together. Honestly, if I was Harry or Louis, I would be more offended if people refused to consider the possibility, given my behaviour. These aren’t just two random people out there in the world - they are two people who have made countless gay innuendos about each other, who stare at each other fondly (and sexually), who have sets upon sets of matching tattoos, and who don’t stick to typical gender norms. None of these things equal a sexuality, but given the prevalence and quantity of these behaviours present, it’s only natural to speculate there might be something going on. 

Banana phone.

I work at a rather large IT-company in northern Sweden, and every week we get a fruit delivery which consists mainly of bananas, oranges, apples and pears.

One of my colleagues, whom I’ll refer to as Mary, is notorious for grabbing a huge bunch of bananas as soon as they arrive and keep them in her office, as to get her daily sugar fix.

This has always bugged me a fair bit since I rarely get any of the delicious yellow fruits, so I decided to get my petty revenge on her banana hogging.

Last wednesday when Mary snuck out early for lunch, as usual, I went into her office with a bunch of zip ties (or cable ties, if you will) and attached her precious bananas to everything in sight. Her desk lamp, her keyboard, her coffee mug and as the title suggests, her phone.

I tightened them real good, so she’d in some way have to destroy the fruits to get them off.

I didn’t have time to snap more pictures, but I hope the one of the phone will be soothing enough!

Something I never understood about the christian belief system is that if you’re not christian, you can’t go to heaven.

To me, that goes against what God actually is all about. He wants you to be a good person, why should some people be excluded because they believe in a different God, or no God at all? If you aren’t a shitty person, why should you be excluded?
