🌟THE GOLDEN THREAD TAROT🌟

I’ve only just been able to tear myself away from these beautiful cards in order to make this post. They arrived this morning and ever since, I’ve just been handling them and taking endless photos. I swear, it’s impossible to take a bad picture of this deck! 

Some thoughts and first impressions bellow the cut!

We haven't been paying attention!

Okay, I have to post about this because holy shit, I’m reeling!

Firstly, I’d like to direct your guys’ attention to this post.

Now you guys better buckle the fuckle in because this is going to be a REALLY long ride.

Alright, so as you can see from that post there’s the possibility of there having been foreshadowing of Schneep’s demise far before “Kill Jack”, and now it makes us question if Jackieboy Man will be next to go. This all then led me to think back to what Anti had told us in “Always Watching”:

“You stopped paying attention.”

I always thought he was strictly referring to us not paying attention to him and him alone, but what if he wasn’t just referring to himself - what if he was also referring to us not paying attention to the other egos?

If that’s the case, this changes EVERYTHING. So I decided to do some digging. I went to look at the 4th “Detention” video and

That’s the description of the video.

It gets better. See this?

I had COMPLETELY forgotten about the zalgo text in the description until now. “betrayal, neglect, mistake” - What if the “mistake” is in reference to us making a mistake not paying close enough attention? What is we “neglected” to pay attention to not just Anti but the egos as well? What if we “betrayed” them all?

This IMMEDIATELY then made me think back to the thumbnail of “Detention #4”

We see a tear of blood coming from his right eye. Where else have we seen a tear of blood?

That’s right, Schneep’s eye was bleeding in “Kill Jacksepticeye”. But wait…where else have we..

LAST YEAR IN THE 3RD VIDEO OF THE “FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S SISTER LOCATION” SERIES.

Remember this? When Schneep was trying to strangle himself with the headphones’ cord in “Kill Jacksepticeye”?

Yeah…now look back at the FNAFSL 3rd video…

Anti shows up, looking like he’s strangling himself with a cord. Coincidence?! And it doesn’t stop there! In that EXACT same video, this happens!

Anti’s shown looking like he’s shooting himself. Also, notice the game - there are children onscreen. Who do we know who shot themselves and has kids?

CHASE. “Jack” has even mentioned in some videos here and there about Chase and giving subtle hints about the possibility of the kids being dead.

It didn’t show up in the captions, but he DOES say “Bye Chase! Say hi to the kids!” He mentions Chase and the kids again here as well.

If Chase just got killed and “Jack” told him to say hi to the kids, doesn’t that imply that the kids are dead? (I know, it could just be Jack joking around with Robin and such, but my theorist mind found it unnerving)

Where I’m going with this is that from all of this, it’s CLEAR we haven’t been paying nearly enough attention to everything as we should. We THOUGHT we were paying attention to everything, when really WE WEREN’T. But WHY?

That leads back to this.

Now if Anti’s been in control since Halloween of last year, then that probably means that he did this description. And if that’s the case, was that Anti trying to tell us something about ourselves? Was he just straight up calling us out for being the villain - for not paying attention even though the hints/clues were RIGHT THERE in front of us? How there had been foreshadowing WAY back in October but we didn’t see it, we didn’t KNOW? Like we ignored the hints, we didn’t search for a deeper meaning? Like we didn’t WANT to help Jack or any of the egos? That we claim to be innocent and want to help, but we’re not doing anything and deep down, we actually don’t care, but we’re in denial of it - we don’t want to face the truth?

It’s like I’ve said in some of my other theories, we ARE the real villain in ALL of this. So what if Anti had called us out WAY back in February with THAT description and was trying to make us open our eyes and realize the truth? But we were too blind to see it. Hell, even when it was getting closer to August 3rd, we created #septicsave and why? To save our own asses, that’s why! We say we care about Jack and the others, but really, I think we’re all in denial of what we really want. We want to save them, yet we really don’t - we ALWAYS want to see what Anti will do next. And we used #septicsave to cover our asses and make it look like we cared, like we were ACTUALLY trying to help, when really we’re in denial of just how heartless we really are. Anti tried to make us realize how blind we are and it shows with how we didn’t PAY ATTENTION to any of the hints and clues from MONTHS ago.

So there was foreshadowing for Schneep and Chase, but what about Jackieboy Man?

Well that post I mentioned at the beginning shows us there’s a possibility of the “Everything Is Going To Be Ok” thumbnail being foreshadowing for Jackieboy Man being next. But that’s not all. Take these into consideration too.

  • “favorite boy” - JackieBOY Man.
  • He’s a superhero - someone who helps people. Schneep was a doctor - someone who helps people - and look what happened to him.
  • As of now, including the “Cool Patrol” music video, he has had 14 appearances - the most attention out of all of the egos (excluding Anti, of course)

In regards to that thumbnail of “Jack” in a hoodie and how Jackieboy Man wears a hood, I remembered these moments from the FNAF Sister Location series.

And you know what the best part is? You see this?

We see Anti wearing a hood IN THE EXACT SAME VIDEO THERE WAS THE TEARS OF BLOOD, THE STRANGULATION, AND THE SHOOTING TO THE HEAD. ALL OF THE FORESHADOWING WAS IN THIS VIDEO.

I went back to “Kill Jacksepticeye” to look back at the description and

HE TOLD US TO PAY ATTENTION NEXT TIME, GUYS!

WE HAVEN’T BEEN PAYING ATTENTION - WE NEVER WERE!

Oh yeah, ANOTHER piece from the Voltron comics that nobody seems to talk about? This part:


Let’s just take a second to think about what this means:

  • Lance seemingly cannot use the Blue Lion’s ice ray while in Voltron formation, because Shiro specifically orders him to “split off” before he can ice the shield as an extra defense. Presumably this means Keith can’t use the Red Lion’s heat ray either.
  • We don’t know if this extends to each Lion’s upgraded ability (ex. Pidge and the Green Lion’s plant gun). But I’m gonna guess ‘no.’
  • Apparently Voltron can detach…one part of itself? Back into a Lion, to use whatever ability that Lion has, ON the rest of Voltron? We know it works, because Shiro gives the order and in the next panel the shield is iced over for extra protection
  • But also, one piece of Voltron can re-attach itself separately? Because on the next page, Voltron is whole again, including having a Blue Lion leg.

The implications of this are pretty big. Up until now it seemed like if you broke off one limb, Voltron would just fall apart completely. We’ve seen it fall apart before–but in retrospect, that’s always under a full-scale attack that affects ALL of Voltron.

But this actually implies Voltron could detach limbs and use them to power up or support itself, at the sacrifice of one of those limbs (however temporary). Presumably you’d lose whatever upgrades came with it too (so detaching the Red Lion would probably also lose you the Blazing Sword, since Keith needs to activate it). So you’d have to be careful when and how you used this. Detaching either leg means less maneuverability, and giving up either arm means sacrificing either your sword or your shield. It would be a more advanced technique that requires the rest of the team to compensate for the loss of a limb.

But, in the right circumstances, this could also be a very useful technique. Lance and Keith’s Lions have Ice and Fire powers respectively that could be very useful in certain scenarios. Or imaging forming Voltron, but breaking off Pidge and the Green Lion to plant-gun an enemy to trip them up, or temporarily bind severe damage Voltron takes. Or, if the Voltron shield has been broken or flung away (which…seems to happen a lot), detaching the Yellow Lion to act as an orbiting shield while the rest of it fights. Or sending any of the Lions out to retrieve an item while the rest of Voltron distracts. Etc, etc.

This could even extend to the Black Lion to some regard. We already know its wings come off to create a shield. We also know its wings seem to be the source of its upgrade ability. There’s probably some wiggle room there, too.

This also means if an enemy uses an attack that just severs one Lion form Voltron, they might not be totally screwed. Assuming somebody gets knocked off but the Lion is still operational and the pilot is still conscious, presumably they could just stick themselves back on. Without a whole Form Voltron sequence, even.

I just find the implications of this fascinating. Voltron might be even more versatile than we first realized.

Okay so @chirpingisflirting said she’s been having a real poopy bday, so I thought I’d take a crack at a nurseydex hc (which became this lame ficlet chimera) for her! Here goes nothing! Literally!

I’d imagine that, early in Nursey and Dex’s relationship (say, four months in?), school starts hittin’ Dex hard; boy’s got assignments up the wazoo, some emergency fees come up and he takes a small job a few days a week at the school bookstore/convenience store, his life’s just a mess. Nursey’s trying to keep his cool and be understanding, but it’s driving him nuts. He hasn’t seen Dex outside of practice in like, a month and a half, and he keeps trying to text him and make the best out of a crappy situation, but Dex tends to fall asleep or get bogged down by a new assignment and just forgets to text back and or it’s been almost a day and it’d feel really awkward to answer now and… yeah. It’s really fucking with Nursey.

He’s been taking it slow with Dex (whom I headcanon as only recently really coming into his sexuality?) since the start, but it feels like he’s the only one who gives a crap sometimes. Nursey reminds himself that’s obviously not true, though, and that Dex is just obscenely busy and just… lays on the supportive texts, or brings extra snacks for Dex after practice/before class. Still, this can only go on for so long.

And it’s driving Dex crazy too, because he’s reading all the texts, and he can see how upset Nursey is every time he splits up with the rest of the team after breakfast to head off to class, and it weighs on his mind when he’s knee-deep in some cs problem. It’s his first real relationship (with a dude?), and he’s crazy for Nursey, but he feels like he’s only giving 30% when Nursey’s constantly giving 100% (which ISN’T TRUE; boy’s running himself ragged, here!).

So he works double time for like a week to give him enough slack to slack off for an evening. It’s Tuesday, and he texts Nursey around lunch to get dressed in something comfy and wait outside the Haus for him after dinner. Nursey’s totally confused and is so… idk? Anxious? What could Dex want to talk about? Can Nursey even take this anymore? Is this fair to him? He almost doesn’t reply or want to show up, but he’s a sucker for Dex, so he puts on a cute li'l sweater over a collared shirt and waits out front.

Dex pulls up ten minutes late (definitely unlike him), and Nursey and him drive off silently.

They pull up to this hill hidden between these real posh houses that overlook Samwell and the surrounding town, minutes pass, and Dex pulls a scrap of paper and a single, haggard looking rose from behind his seat, but he still won’t talk. He just stares down at the things in his hands, and Nursey’s somewhere between concerned and pissed.

“I stopped by the flower shop before they closed and picked this up for you,” Dex starts, hands on the rose he’s now jerking in Nursey’s direction, “but I realized I don’t even know if you like roses, and this is completely fucking cliché, and it got all fucked up because I kept fiddling with it, and- Jesus, Nurse. I’m sorry.”

Nursey just looks up and locks eyes with Dex for the first time all night. Concern is winning out over anger now. He takes the rose, and his eyebrows wrinkle in an almost sad way.

“Shit, Nur- Derek! Derek. Are you okay? I’m so, so–”

“I love it.” Nursey places his hand over Dex’s. Dex just blushes and goes silent again, his eyes returning to the scrap that’s getting closer to becoming, well, scraps.

“I know I’ve been really shitty about, well, us, recently.” Dex is breathing deeper now. “But I know how hard this is for you, and I think about you all the time, and I thought I could balance everything, but I-” Dex shrugs. “I guess I can’t,” he chuckles.

“And I guess I know how much you like poetry and stuff, and- just- I brought you here to tell you…” He stretches out the paper in his now shaking hands, and sucks in a sharp breath. Th- this. Just read this.“ He passes the scrap over to Nursey:

‘You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.’

"Yo, you know plagiarism is probably the least effective way to my heart, right?” Nursey chirps.

“I know that, idiot,” Dex starts. “I- I’m not saying I wrote it. I just-”

“I know, man.” Nursey’s hand tightens around Dex’s.

And then Nursey’s kissing him, and Dex could almost cry for all that he feels he doesn’t deserve it after this past month. They break apart soon, though, and Dex takes the moment to hold Nursey out at arm’s length.

“I'msosorryDerekyoudeservebetterthanthisI'lltryharderforyou,” Dex breathes out.

“Hey, chill. I’m not blind, you know? You’re doin’ everything you can, Will. Just… just let me help you too, y'know? If you’re too busy to leave your damn room, let me come to you. It’ll kill me, but I can catch up on my readings and… not distract you.” He waits a beat for Dex to answer, and when he doesn’t, he continues, “Or I can meet you in between classes and walk you to your next one, or we can call each other… I just miss you.”

Dex’s eyes start darting here and there, like he’s looking for something in Nursey’s, and he finally answers: “Yeah. Yeah, I’d like that.” He’s sniffling now. “Let me do better.”

And with that, Dex leans in to kiss the smile sprouting on Nursey’s lips.

(And then vehicular cuddles. A lot of them. To the point where Nursey has to drive them back because Dex is half-asleep.)

okay so i haven’t actually watched season 4 yet but i have seen a lot of spoilers (i thrive on spoilers), especially regarding the shatt/miro reunion. and i’ve seen posts saying that “sir” is referring to rank or even how the scene kind of just ruined shatt (in the sense that it might not be canon). and that’s all great and all but…

has anyone thought up the fact that maybe “sir” is also an inside joke? i mean this is all taking into account my headcanons but we know that matt and shiro have to be similar in age right? and if we take the route where the two were best friends at the garrison and if shiro was indeed his commanding officer, then matt could also be saying “sir” to mess with shiro

like maybe shiro doesn’t want to be called sir by his best friend in seriousness so matt does the opposite and calls him sir as a joke?

so when he calls shiro “sir” in the scene, and stumbles before that, he’s trying to decide what he should say. i mean there’s probably been some time since matt and shiro saw each other so he’s not sure where exactly they stand

and the hug is shiro reassuring matt that they still are close and the reason for matt’s weird expression before returning the hug can be chalked up to the age old “i didn’t know you were going to kiss me so i’m just standing like idiot oh wait we’re doing this hang on let me return it” platonic style

Hi! I was wondering if you could help me track down a really good Sheith edit I sighted a while ago. This was before I even got into the show and I haven't seen it floating around since then so I'm starting to think I imagined it? It's pre-kerb, they're both in uniform & at the Garrison and it stuck with me so well that when I finally picked up Vld I was honest to god waiting for it to play out in a scene but it didn't and I thought it was from a special ep but it wASN'T and now I'm going crazy?

ah, my dear friend, you’ve found @goodtohaveyouback‘s sheith edits. she’s been making a bunch of fun edits in general over the past few months, all in her edit tag, but the one you’re talking about is probably this one and this one:

How To Have a Positive Fandom Experience (it is possible)

1. Not every post requires a reaction. Seriously. I see people exhausting themselves writing responses to a post they don’t agree with when in reality the ONE nice thing about tumblr is if you don’t agree with an opinion you can scroll…. right…. past it. You can hide it from appearing on your dash again. You can blacklist its tags, block the person, etc. Take advantages of the positives of this website and it will already be a much better experience for you.

2. Not every comment requires a reaction. Same thing above goes for all those comments people put on your posts JUST TO GET A REACTION OUT OF YOU. Do you know how many times a post of mine has made it’s way to a different fandom. I look through my notifs and suddenly just see “BELLAMY BLAKE SUX DIK.” Just. Block them.

3. Not every message requires a response. Again, no ones holding a gun to your head saying “you need to respond to every anon sent to you.” I see people responding to anon hate and I just think why the hell would you do that? You’ll NEVER see me respond to anon hate. I can’t think of anything funnier then knowing someone out there got heated enough just over my presence on the internet to type up an angry message, hide behind anon, and now is sitting there waiting for my response. Meanwhile i’ll have read all of 3 words in their message before blocking their IP from ever messaging me again. And they’ll just keep sitting there and checking back waiting for a response they’ll never get while I keep posting shit like “BLARKE IS GONNA FUCK”

4. Unfollow, break mutuals, block people. You’re ALLOWED to do that. I break mutuals all the time and I unfollow people really easily. There’s a reason I’m never following over 90 blogs. I’m not saying that to be cocky, I’m telling yall to drop the mentality that “oh I can’t unfollow this person because we used to talk and they’re kinda big in the fandom and I don’t wanna start shit” and that ever since I dropped that, I do not see drama on my dash. I see my other mutuals referring to the drama, but I never see it because I’ll have already unfollowed the person. IF THEY WERE PROBLEMATIC ONCE,,, THEY’LL BE PROBLEMATIC AGAIN. 

5. This “Discourse” Trend. isn’t. cute. Take it from someone who used to constantly get involved in that shit. You think it makes you “one of the blarke fam.” It doesn’t okay, it makes you one of the assholes. No one wants to be friends with that person who’s constantly angry about something. I understand calling out problematic things (that absolutely should happen) but when every single one of your posts is just you being angry, you making a problem out of every little thing, you bringing down others with you, you getting involved where you shouldn’t be, you fighting people, you writing posts shading someone else’s post, you bringing up old and DEAD shipwars (seriously why are yall still posting l.exa hate, LET IT GO)… you’re not only ruining the experience for yourself but for every single person who follows you and who sees those posts. YOU are contributing to the “fandom drama” and YOU are the reason so many of the newbies in the fandom get involved in discoursing so fast. And guess what? no one feels fucking sorry for you when you’re the one taking a break from tumblr every week because we all know you bring it on yourself.

**To the newbies in the fandom: I know you see it a lot, I know you think this is the only way to be involved in the blarke fam, I know you think it’ll get you a lot of followers and more known in the fandom. Trust me when I say you do not wanna go down that path. It’s not at all fun and there’s a reason the blogs who do this are the ones who want to quit the show, the fandom, tumblr. TRUST ME, I ALMOST QUIT LAST SUMMER, I WAS THAT BITCH. You wanna be more involved? message people, write positive posts, get involved with shit like bellarke fam selfie night. Stay away from the discoursing.

*Doesn’t apply to social justice issues, those should very much be talked about. But stfu about it if you’re straight and white please. And stop speaking over the lgbt poc in the fandom,,,in attempt to get notes and followers*

6. Stop being bullies. You might think you’re “edgy” and a badass bitch for writing a post shading someone, or for being part of a group that gangs up on that one person in the fandom. You’re not edgy, you’re not That Bitch, you’re just A Bitch. You’re the bully that you never got to be in highschool. That’s really all I have to say about that,,,just don’t be a dick ??

7. And finally. Be the positive presence. Be that blog people can come to for a laugh when they’re having a bad day (making people laugh feels a lot nicer then getting people angry, down, etc.) Be the person people feel comfortable enough messaging you. Be the person who drops KIND anons in the ask box of someone you feel maybe doesn’t always receive a lot of love. ***Reach out when someone makes a post about having a terrible day/being in a down mood/struggling with life or mental illnesses.*** Comment and reblog peoples selfies and hype eachother up. Be the person who points out positives of an episode and who can make someone feel better when they’re feeling disappointed. IGNORE THE NEGATIVE ANONS (seriously no one wants to see “bellarke is never gonna happen” on their dash. If we did, we’d be following people from a different fandom.) Ignore the drama, ignore the discourse, ignore the downers in the fandom.

You never know what someones going through outside of tumblr. For a lot of people logging on here is the only distraction they get from what’s going on in their real life. Think about that before putting something negative on someone dash, or before sending a mean anon, or before joining a group to shade That One Person.

About Abbie and Tyler

This isn’t supposed to be a rant but it will probably turn into one.

One of the things I didn’t expect to be disappointed by in the Sophomore was this particular dynamic duo that captured my heart during MC’s freshman year. 

Now let me be clear; I’ve mostly said this because of the simple fact that they managed to prevail an entire year when everyone else’s relationship had seemingly began falling apart at some point or another during their freshman year. 

Abbie and Tyler were always sort of this solid rock (or just appeared to be anyway), in the midst of everyone else’s drama.

I was looking at this crowd, and I’m knowing that we probably have a lot of people here tonight who live in or around Boston Massachusetts. But I know we probably also have a lot of people who traveled from other states to be here. I um, I look out at this crowd and the crazy thing is, I can see every single person. Like with this tour. The thing about this tour that is so over whelming for me and um, you know, I’ve been lucky to get to play stadiums before, but this tour, I can see every single person, and if you think that I can’t, that’s not true. I can see every person, you’re all illuminated, and highlighted. You know a crowd of 60,000 people is a magical thing no matter what, but it’s absolutely breath taking for me being able to look out and see just how many individuals that is, and when I’m looking at you, and I see that it makes me think about my crowd not as a kind of, um, a loud, dark entity. It’s a group of individuals, and when I start thinking about that is when I really start thinking, and I start thinking about how every single person here is going through your own set of circumstances in your life. Things that scare you, things you regret, things that you’re so excited about, things that have happened to you in the past, things that you’re scared of happening in the future. Um, you know, every single person here has lost somebody, and maybe even very recently. Um. maybe, maybe there are so many people here tonight who have gotten their heart broken, or felt betrayed, by a friend. Or lost someone they never thought they would have to say goodbye to. Maybe we have people here tonight, who fell in love with a habit that was bad for them, and they had the hardest time in the world quitting, and every single day is a struggle not to go back, to that bad relationship, or that bad habit, or that bad addiction. Whatever it is, every single person here tonight, has something that they overcame and overlooked, and did not dwell on in order to get out of bed, put on clothes, and be at this concert tonight. Keep that in mind when you are next to someone in line, keep that in mind if you’re dancing next to someone who is here by themselves. Keep that in mind if you are out in the world, and for one second that you forget that everyone is struggling with something. I think that we need to give ourselves the benefit of the doubt more, and we need to give other people the benefit of the doubt more, and I just wanted to say that if you are going through something right now, or have in the past, and you listened to my music in that moment, I look at that as the highest honor in the world, and I will never be able to thank you. I think a lot of the time, we are so hard on ourselves because we look at our lives and we compare our lives to other peoples lives. We look at every mistake we’ve ever made in our life, and we hold it against ourselves. We look at it like it’s a mark against our record, well guess what? There is no record. That’s not how it works. Making mistakes is part of your life, and you’re going to do it over and over and over again. Be kind to yourself, please. You have been there for every single lesson I have ever learned. Publicly or privately, in the last 10 years of my life, and one thing I can tell you is that the mistakes that you will make, do not make you damaged. They make you wiser, if you take something from them, and I just want you to know that. That if you feel like life is raining down on you over and over and over again, I need you to know that, that does not make you tarnished. Walking through a bunch of rainstorms and continuing to go on with your life, that makes you the opposite of damaged or tarnished, that makes you stronger, wiser, smarter, and ultimately, I think it makes you clean. Please sing this one with me, Boston.

Taylor Swift’s Clean speech, Foxborough MA, Night 2, July 25th 2015


This speech was one of the biggest eye openers for me and I will never be able to thank Taylor enough. So I wanted to type it out and post it on here so it can help other people like it helped me, also so I can read it whenever I’m feeling down on myself. Thank you again Taylor.

anonymous asked:

hey! i've been seeing conflicting accounts about this and i wanted to ask you how you felt because i'm on the fence. often times people will say noctluna doesn't make sense cause they don't really know each other. they've been exchanging letters for years but they haven't even been in the same room for that same amount of time. but since i've never been in a relationship it has me thinking: were their exchanges "enough" i guess? can you fall in love with a penpal? (sorry for this rambly msg!!)

I’ve actually talked about this in a few different posts, but it really pisses me off when people say it isn’t possible (and it makes me even more peeved when people say she knows someone better that she only knew for a day than her 12-years-and-counting love and penpal)

One thing I said in probably my first meta post on it is that I do very much wonder about the demographics on those who do and don’t ship it. There’s overlap, ofc, there always is, but I wonder about the biggest numbers, y’know?

Most of the people I’ve seen who ship it are in committed relationships that have been ongoing for years. I’m 30 and married and a parent. My husband and I have been together for 12 years, married for 9.

Another thing I’ve seen is people taking the game context of the notebook and applying that to their real life use of it, which is dumb af. I understand the “It should have been in the game!” complaints, but to outright ignore Brotherhood showing us clearly that that the notebook included long letters and very personal info………. *sigh*

The notebook has a lot in it. The game may not have made that as clear, but it has been made very clear in canon through Brotherhood.

But even then, the descriptions on the notebook do make it clear. The 1~5 affection point description is that it contains 12 years worth of memories. The 6 point description tells you how the last page is stained in tears. The no affection description (in JP at least) is even tragic as well, telling you that an answer will no longer come.

Maybe they didn’t show us the entries in the game, but they did make it obvious, if you bothered to pay attention.

I also wrote another post at some point where I talked about falling in love with pen pals!! In it, I talked about when I was a kid in elementary school, we got assigned pen pals. Before we started writing our letters, we talked a lot about pen pals in general. We were told of lasting friendships and love that have come out of it, we were told how it can be so freeing to share things with someone like that, we were told so much. Even here in America, once upon a time, pen pals were a romantic thing.

That’s not so much the case anymore here.

But it is in Japan.

They even have a specific word for sharing a notebook. What Luna and Noctis did is a thing, and to completely hate on them is also to ignore the social differences.

It’s fine if it doesn’t do it for you.

I can even agree that I do wish that certain things had been made more clear.

But theirs is a very real romance. It isn’t in your face, and that’s what I love about it. It already developed, so what we see isn’t the formation of that love, it’s seeing that love that already exists and binds these two.

Also:

True love isn’t that person being the only thing you think and talk about - That’s obsession.

True love isn’t dependent on constant physical interaction - That’s an insult to all long distance relationships, for starters.

True love is support. True love is lasting. True love is a quiet passion burning under the surface. True love is seen in the actions more than it is spoken of.

True love is family, and family is acceptance, belonging, trust.

It’s home.

Never to Return (and it’s variations)

Warning - Huge amount of spoilers for Pyre and Pyre lore.

Now, with that out of the way…

One of my favourite songs of the Pyre soundtrack is the one which plays at the Fall of Soliam - Never to Return. A thing I haven’t seen, however, is that each time you’re upon the Fall, the music and lyrics change subtly, depending on who you’re facing.

[All the variations can be found over here, or if you dig through the game files]

EDIT: Just realised something new about the verses, going to put it under the cut.

Can you do some headcannons on the rest of the eight demon kings, the ones we haven't met yet?

(HELL YH MY BOI I LOVE THE DEMON KINGS SO MUCH I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET MY PRECIOUS CHILDREN I HOPE KATO HURRIES AND INTRODUCES THEM, I NEED MY TWIN BOI’S TO BE TAKEN TO GEHENNA AT ONE POINT AND HAVE DEMON SLAVES CALL THEM ‘YOUNG PRINCE’ AND ‘MASTER’ AND THE WHOLE DEMONIC FAM JUST SITTING EATING CARVED OUT EXORCIST LUNGS FOR DINNER PLEASEEEEEEE)

Before we start: I know it’s been said Amaimon is the weakest of the baal but I believe him to be the second weakest because it was stated in the manga he was the 7th king, and since there is 8 kings someone is below him. Satan is not apart of the baal, Lucifer is the 1st king, Satan is above the baal, reigning over them all.

I’ve always wondered if Astaroth or Beelzebub were the lowest of the baal, rot or insects, which overcomes the other?

Iblis:

(Yes I used a gif of Heath Burns from Monster high - I imagine him to look like this, okay? (But obvs more aggressive and not so cute looking) Also on a side note how much does Jackson look like Yukio?)

  • Iblis is really hot-headed (…..i’m so sorry)
  • He’s quick to anger and it’s best to avoid him when he’s particularly angry
  • He’s known to cause destruction over all the land with his temper tantrums 
  • Iblis is quite arrogant and cocky, but prideful
  • He love’s himself quite a lot and likes to show off whenever he can
  • As determined and powerful as he is, he sometimes slacks off a bit
  • He likes to sleep in late and laze around in bed for as long as he can
  • He likes to make bets with his brothers on various subjects
  • He has quite a good relationship with his father, as they both use flames
  • His younger siblings always envied his powers because it meant he got closer with father during training 
  • His familiar is a dragon (of course)
  • It’s called Igneel (Ya FT af yo)

Astaroth:

  • He’s the youngest of the baal, and therefore the weakest (Unless it’s Bubby??)
  • He’s always been a lapdog because of this
  • And a huge kiss-up
  • He resented his elder brothers but also respects them a lot
  • During the first years he was close to Amaimon, but the two drifted over the centuries because of Amaimon’s bond with Samael
  • Due to this Astaroth resents Sameal 
  • He’s prideful and works hard to achieve his father’s wishes
  • Therefore he is on Lucifer’s side in this war
  • He is quite possibly the laziest king, which is ironic considering how hard he works to make his father pleased
  • Being the weakest he’s had to step up and always rise to the challenge
  • He has many scars, more so then his elder siblings, both from his father’s torture and his elder brother’s harassment

Beelzebub: 

(Obviously i don’t think Bubby would look like a baby but this is just the only thing I can think of for him, plus it’s an awesome anime!)

  • He probably has a bouncy castle tbh
  • He’s quite close to Samael and misses his brother dearly 
  • He likes betting and fighting with his brothers (as most of them do)
  • His favourite past times are collecting disney merchandise, torturing his ex-lovers who crossed him, and annoying Egyn

  • He doesn’t handle his emotions well 
  • He prefers to stay out of debates and wars if he can
  • Not because he believes in right or wrong, but he can’t be bothered to be held up in his family affairs
  • He would side with the strongest team of course though

Azazel:

  • Pure af
  • Or as pure as a demon can be
  • Kindest demon king
  • He’s the kind to help a lost child in a grocery store
  • Props met Rin and Yuki when they were younger and gave them a lollypop 
  • Such a loving demon
  • Yet he’s capable of so much destruction
  • He’s protective of those he cherishes 
  • Is willing to spill blood for a good or noble cause
  • Want’s to protect Assiah and it’s people
  • He loves cat’s
  • Like a L O T
  • He also has a cat sidhe as a familiar 
  • His is a fusion between a cat sidhe and a spirit, so it’s like Uke & Mike & Kuro has a threesome and it’s the result
  • Ghost kitty - probably white and super cool and stuck up
  • Probably a girl, called Seraphim, or Serpheine…something Angelic and ironic sounding

xenodweeb  asked:

Hey, sorry for bothering you, but I haven't really gotten into the sonic comics yet but some of your posts in the past make me want to check them out. Any recommendations on where to start out from.

EDIT: Changes have been to reflect complaints. 

Hey, no bother at all! Word to the wise, though, the main site that hosted the comics recently went down so if you see any older posts recommending ScanF to read them….well, they took all the comics down. ReadComicsOnline has them, if I remember right, both the main series and the Universe series (and the short lived and long mourned Boom series and the currently running special MegaDrive). 

Okay now let’s get back to business. *cracks knuckles*

ONE

There are three suggested ways of reading the Sonic comics from Archie. One, you start from the beginning and slog your way through every cheesy joke and batshit insane plot turn that Ken Penders has to give you. This is for the…stronger among us, and unless you know that you can enjoy a good trainwreck, I wouldn’t recommend this method. If you really want to know the full scope of some of these characters in the later story, then my suggestion is to use either method 2 or 3 and come back and read the backissues once you’ve done that. 

TWO

That second method is the issue 175 method. This is pretty straightforward, just start with issue 175. I personally originally followed this method (albeit skimming earlier back to issue 169) before I put myself through Ken Pender’s Wild Ride. If I’m remembering right, issue 160 is where Ian Flynn was brought on as a writer and many of the current mainstay artists were brought in. This is the method I went by originally and I think is the most commonly recommended one. 

THREE

The final method, which I personally do not recommend because I feel it would miss you out on a lot of what the Archie Sonic comics have to offer, is the Post-Genesis Wave method. I’m sure you heard about Ken Pender’s Wild Lawsuit and the comic revamp that came with it, called unofficially the Pendering in which the writers literally hit the reset button in order to get rid of ideas, characters, and settings invented by Penders and other writers who might sue them. Thusly we have the ‘pre-genesis wave’ issues and the ‘post-genesis wave’ issues. From issue 252 on is Post-Genesis (and technically 251, but its all the finale of why this all happened which is the last part of a twelve part Megaman crossover). If you want to read Post-Genesis method, then start around issue 252. I don’t recommend it, but its a starting point I’ve seen suggested before. 

Now of course, with Archie being Archie, that isn’t the end the bonanza. If you’re familiar with even Archie’s most vanilla productions, the Archie comics themselves, then you probably know that the company has a habit of doing spin off series based on the main story properties they own. Sonic has quite a few as well due to it being one of Archie’s most prolific franchises (its the longest running video game comic in history at the moment). 

The first one (not chronologically, but probably the most important one) is Sonic Universe. 

Sonic Universe is basically a collection of side stories, each usually around four issues long, that focus on the side characters or an alternative story (such as a future setting). In the case of the side character stories, the stories in Sonic Universe can oftentimes tie in to the main plot going on in the central comic, so I’d suggest waiting until you finish the actual main comic before reading Sonic Universe. That said, its almost always great so there’s no reason to not start from issue 1 with this one. 

The second one worth mentioning is Sonic Megadrive. 

Sonic Megadrive is a special with art by Tyson Hesse (yes, the guy who did Boxer Hockey and this fan comic) and written by Ian Flynn. There’s really no need to describe it, its just a charming comedy that’s basically a love letter to the original games. It’s very reminiscent of the OVA both stylistically and story-wise. If you were having the hankerings for Classic Sonic then Megadrive is for YOU. It’s probably the only one of these comics I actually physically own because I’m a poor piece of shit. 

And then there’s all the unsuccessful spinoffs. Knuckles got a spinoff because Ken Penders could not and still cannot contain his boner for Knuckles, and I’m sure there was some other one I can’t remember. These are all awful in my opinion, and I would not recommend them very highly or even very lowly. However, it’s up to you as a reader to decide if its for you, so I’d suggest wading through the main series before them and making your decision based on what you think of Penders’ work in the main comic. I personally don’t like it, maybe you will. 

And that’s…basically it? Just pick one method and go with it, read Sonic Universe, check out Megadrive, and join the constantly growing club of People Who Hate Ken Penders. We have nametags.

alright i know this theory is kinda irrelevant and out of date right now but i had the idea and wanted to post it kthxbyeeeee

back when the ‘don’t believe your lies’ picture went up - i’m sure we all remember it well - we all know that the tags changed, eventually giving us 'SOS’ in morse code and zalgo. from what we know, this was schneeplestein asking us to help jack, going by what happened in august. but something that bothered me came in the form of the picture itself - who exactly is telling us that we can’t trust jack? who is telling us not to believe his lies?

this is what i’ve come up with:

we’ve all heard of the theory that jack has actually been gone since the events of 'say goodbye’, and the 'jack’ we’re watching has been anti in disguise the entire time. but, based off of a theory i have, anti could have been in disguise as someone else, too: schneeplestein himself.

when i watched episode 4 of bio inc redemption for the first time, i was happy to see henrik again, that’s for sure, but… something felt off. henrik’s enthusiasm for saving and helping his patients had been replaced with him thinking they were 'problems that needed to be solved’. then there was the fact that he openly said 'lots of [his] patients live in the graveyard’, even though he was enthusiastic about keeping people alive when we first met him. and on top of all of that…

you take a look at that smile and tell me we haven’t seen it somewhere before.

Originally posted by magicpigperson

…yeah. anyway.

going off of this, what if henrik found out about what anti had done? that anti had not only tricked us into believing he was schneeplestein, but also that anti had been posing as jack all along? considering henrik was asking us to help jack, what if he was trying to warn us about anti as well? and that makes him the person who told us not to believe jack’s lies; if jack really has been posing as anti, then he knows, and he wanted us to know, too.

…this probably doesn’t make a lot of sense. oh well. i tried. haha

Would That Seconds Felt Like Hours

The feel of her lips against his is certainly his heart breaking into a thousand pieces. Softly, tentatively, she presses forward, one of her hands wrapping around the bars that separate them, the other reaching for him, in utter denial.

It’s like a dream, and he can’t believe it. The earnestness in her eyes, the vain hope, the trust… love? He dares not contemplate how cruel the universe can be, convincing him that he’s all alone only to thrust everything he’s ever wanted in his lap mere moments before his death.

Perhaps his heart isn’t in a thousand pieces, for the feel of it trapped in his throat has him clenching is jaw, struggling to breathe without letting out the sob trapped in his chest. A single tear escapes instead, rolling down his cheek.

It all happens in a span of a few seconds, time moving far too fast when all he wants is to stop it completely, to stay in her presence, breathing her in forever. She’s so close, leaning against the bars, forehead to forehead they will time to slow.

It doesn’t. Rosaline’s face starts to crumple, the tears welling in her eyes falling just as his own. Her breath catches the way a child’s does when they swallow a cry. A sudden and overwhelming need to scream thrums though him.

He looks in her eyes instead, finding there the thing he’d been searching for his whole life. It is love, but it’s so much more. She knows him, she cares, she wants so badly to save him from his fate. He doesn’t deserve the way her heart beats for him, the grief wracking her even as she holds him to her.

Reaching for her, he cradles her face, fiercely taking her lips a second time, hunger and need pouring out of him. He pushes everything else from his mind. All he wants to know is her, the feel of her skin against his own, the sound of her whimpering the back of her throat, the salty tears on his tongue. He desperately paints a portrait of her love in his mind, something to hold onto as he faces the crowd of hatred, something to block out the sound of the guillotine’s blade slicing through the air above him. He can face it as long as he has this, as long as he knows she’s safe.

anonymous asked:

P1-I haven't seen this brought up at all yet but Sam is smart. I think he knows how SM works & he also knows that the majority of interest in his private life includes spec on him+Cait. Anti v shippers don't matter-still all about SC & are they or aren't they. Though he's been seen w/ MM & she's not necessarily an unknown in his life I think especially on social media he's aware that anything new in his love life would undoubtedly circle back to him&Cait somehow. It did too if you think about it

P2-Sam’s location post seemed strategic, basically making it known he’d be at a family wedding w/ MM & in most talks I’ve seen it still goes back to SC. It’s not S/MM happily together. It’s either MM as a decoy or his ways of getting over the pain of losing C. You could expect this reaction to a certain extent & if Sam did it begs entirely new questions of why he’d post something linking him to MM if you could predict most reactions wouldn’t be about him+MM but him+C? P3 will be short I promise. P3-Maybe I’m wrong but Sam knows about shippers. Hell he engages w/ us. He must know the discussions this would lead to about him/Cait even though it directly relates to him/MM. If he didn’t want that SC discussion to happen, he would have been more blunt that he was there w/ MM rather than let fans make their own conclusions. He seemed so passive aggressive it makes you think even more he had hidden agendas for posting the GA pic. Almost like he wants the comparison/spec of C v MM to come out.


I agree with you on pretty much everything in this. I think his posting was absolutely strategic and you’re right, it did circle back to Cait because so much of their behavior together would be considered straight up disrespectful and inconsiderate if they were with others. And yes Sam absolutely knows about shippers, there’s zero doubt in my mind about that. He’s engaged with shippers consistently since November 2014 and probably before, but that was when he liked the tweet about him and Cait making pretty babies. 

The last part of your message is where I have the most questions because WHY the fuck does he want that comparison? He’s behaving like a passive aggressive teenager almost. Sam is stubborn AF, that’s one thing I’ve gleaned over the last year especially. But you mentioning the hidden agendas definitely makes me wonder if this has something to do with Starz???? like was he giving them a middle finger by being so obvious about being in Georgia? but still!! why does he want to invite the speculation? why does he want people thinking he’s an absolute douchebag? why does he want to make it seem like he’s being incredibly disrespectful to women no matter who he’s with, Cait or Mackenzie??  He has lost the respect of a LOT of fans, especially in this corner of the fandom and even potential fans outside the fandom, over the last year bc of his various associations. It makes no sense to me why he’d continue to do that and it makes no sense to me why he’d continue to play the innuendo game, especially after being so out there w Cait for the last 6 weeks. I mean the man stayed up until 4 in the fucking morning on a Sunday night to watch her at the Globes and turned his twitter into a shrine for her. I know people are sick of theories and I am too but this still reminds me so much of whatever the fuck was going on last year with the merger that I can’t help but think this was some sort of leftover deal w Starz. but that being said, it could have been handled so much better. everything about this has been a disaster. 

I was kind of thinking out loud for most of this so hope this makes sense!

How the Vrains OP and ED might be hinting at Kusanagi’s betrayal

In light of @pendulumprince’s post about the “Kusanagi is evil” theory, I wanted to also add my two cents about it (I was just adding on to the post itself but realized it was getting long and also has more to do with the OP/ED and only kinda has to do with the foil between Kusanagi and Akira.)

I feel like lighting in the Vrains OP and ED is used in a sort of simple but clever way. We see both Yusaku and Go running against a bright blue sky - for Go, it represents his bright ambitions that are so different from the others. Although Yusaku has a more secretive life than Go, his conviction is clear and he walks forward without hesitation (the same with Go). In contrast, Aoi is standing still and looks away from a setting sun. She hasn’t reached her key motivation yet. Guess who else has a still shot during twilight.

It’s a harmless kind of cute shot honestly, but it’s also the only shot we get of Kusanagi in the OP. He’s a pretty major character so you would think that we would see him supporting Yusaku from the sidelines at least. Instead we have just this to work with. Here we don’t even see the sky - it’s just Kusanagi completely confined in his truck and the night time starting to fall on the city in the background. We see him at the “in-between” period of the day. He’s not fully lit, not like our protagonist Yusaku. It gives an indication that Kusanagi may also be “in-between.” And in fact, in the OP and ED he is NEVER fully lit.

This image can easily give an indication that he’s working hard in the night toward his goal (his brother), but we also don’t see the screen he’s working on. It’s likely none of the hot dog truck monitors because those are usually blue and he would be looking up at them. Even if it’s intended to be the hot dog truck, it has a completely different vibe of secrecy, and we don’t have eye contact with him. Moreover, he is once again somewhere between light and shadows.

The last shot we’re given is Kusanagi standing dramatically in the rain, this time no visible light source to be found. On top of that this shot is right on beat with the lyrics “Never give up” which match with his determined, defiant look here. He’s put himself in darkness and is not even attempting to shield himself from the downpour. It’s similar to the darkness that always shrouds Akira.

We know that Akira’s not necessarily evil, just that he feels that he’s thrown himself in darkness and made himself a hellhound for the sake of Aoi.

My point is that, given all of these hints, I think Kusanagi is going to be given a choice somewhere down the line where he’ll have to choose between his loyalty to his brother or his loyalty to Yusaku, and the choice he ultimately makes may be one that puts a strain on his relationship with Yusaku.
