Personally I think Bill Cipher is a good example of a villain who’s a serious threat but also funny AND has a “tragic” backstory. The thing is, his backstory isn’t emphasises upon because its not needed. We don’t need Bill Cipher crying about the destruction of his home dimension because he’s going to destroy the world and that’s the main problem. He’s funny, he’s quirky, he’s a goofball, he’s even a little relatable with some of his quotes, but he’s also a very serious threat. I think he’s a well written villain.
As opposed to Blue Diamond who is just… sad… That’s it. that’s her redeeming factor. She’s sad. Like okay cry all you want you fucking sith-lord lookin bitch, you’re still a fascist.
Hello Duke! Something of a weird question but I'd really appreciate any thoughts you may have on this. I'm at summer camp and we have a talent show coming up soon. I'm thinking of dressing up as an author/poet/fictional character and enacting something. Do you have any suggestions for things that might be interesting to an audience of 16-17 year olds, not all of whom have exposure to typical classic literature? It could be funny/tragic/etc. Thank you so much!
Hi. So, I think with kids this age the best thing you can do is something they’re familiar with, even if they don’t have a lot of exposure to classic lit. Because if you try and give them something totally alien out of context a lot of them are going to be bored and frustrated. I’d look into something along the lines of the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s sketch comedy on Shakespeare–you can buy the script to The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) and learn a few of the skits pretty quickly. Even if the kids haven’t seen R & J they probably know the story, and making it funny never hurt. That’s just one suggestion of course, but you get the idea. You could build your own sketches around any famous work of literature–Pride and Prejudice, Les Mis, Sherlock Holmes, etc. That’s all going to be stuff they recognize, even if they haven’t read it before.
i can’t stop fucking thinking about my english prof talking about the queer historical significance of the word “sweet” as a deliberate indicator of homosexual love and how that relates to both edward ii and gaveston, as well as hamlet and horatio. so, because shakespeare was likely totally knowledgeable about codes that queer men were using (cos like duh obvs), the inclusion of “sweet prince” at the end of hamlet is in all likelihood a completely deliberate indication that hamlet and horatio were in love
<b>Super Junior:</b> old school legends, no one can compare. Loyal af fans, still stan them after Hyukjae's bad eyebrow era and all the scandals. Kings of hosting shows. Literally it's just Heechul holding down the fort and exposing everyone he can while everybody else gets their military service done. #justiceforSungmin #makeSiwonCEOofSM<p/><b>Big Bang:</b> kpop kings, basically carved the way for third generations. Were hella problematic sometimes but tbh who hasn't. G-Dragon could literally sing about crayons and make a music video with TOP while they pee on each other and still top the charts....oh wait, he did. Daesung out here setting the beauty standards for everyone in s. Korea. #getTaeyangashirt #makeSeungriCEOofYG<p/><b>SHINee:</b> kpop princes, but everyone and their mom knows they're kings. It's just 4 proud moms taking care of their sonshine, Lee Taemin. They don't attend variety shows, variety shows attend them. Out here roasting everybody including themselves, and every producer is scared to have them guest tbh. Vocals out of this world, get ready to be blessed. #shineeorpinee #whereisJonghyun'skazoo<p/><b>Infinite:</b> invented synchronized choreography. Hella supportive of each other and will probably jump off a cliff if Woohyun suggested it. Tbh no one knows what's going on in Dongwoo's head, but it's all good bc he's the resident happy virus. Only the members are allowed to pick on their leader, they'll bite your head off if you do. Still one of the most underrated groups, it's insane. #redchilipepperpaste #kingsofsychronization<p/><b>EXO:</b> just a single mom raising her 8 kids after a tragic breakup. There are two types of fans: ot12 China line forever & everyone is gay for each other. Still waiting on Baekhyun to adopt us all. Everyone suffers when EXO isn't promoting. Always fighting something/are angsty in their MV's ??? #lipstickchateau #yixingcomehome<p/><b>BTOB:</b> legit the most extra group ever. Besties with Vixx, Ilhoon was probably a love child between Minhyuk and Hakyeon. A member can fit his whole fist in his mouth, and the other can break a whole watermelon with his head...don't test them. Have the most amazing ballad songs but are always underrated. #Peniel'swalltwerk #stopChangsub<p/><b>VIXX:</b> concept kings, there isn't a single thing they couldn't pull off. We were all baptized by Hakyeon's dancing. Have the best relationship with their fans, even wrote a song about Starlights. Call Ravi if you wanna make a cute diss track about your enemy. Possibly might be the apitome of contradiction, you're gonna have whiplash after every comeback. #whereisLeo'ssolo #KenVi4life<p/><b>BTS:</b> actually are hella cool once you get past the problematic fans. Massive headaches are all you're gonna experience after trying to figure out the meaning of a music video. Buddies who watch porn together, stay together. They go so hard on their choreography ?? Shook. The true definition of "started from the bottom now we're here" #gucciislove #gucciislife<p/><b>Topp Dogg:</b> could probably rule the third generation of kpop if they weren't so underrated. They have nothing to do but go around and kiss men's lips all day. Peppero embasadors. Titty Boyz. Fans are loyal af, and probably have one of the cutest fan names ever. They're each others biggest shippers, probably. #hanjooruinedme #WOW<p/><b>Got7:</b> if you thought btob was bad, you're gonna have a stroke. Dab7. Diversity at its finest. Always needing to be in trend and act hip, just don't let Bambam near the aux cord. Besties with probably every group out there. Stop taking off your shirt literally no one cares ???? No cucumbers. #EEEEEAAAAZZY. #welcometoYoungjae'sclass<p/><b>Monsta X:</b> were so awkward around each other during No.Mercy but are now the best of besties. Everyone wants to know what Changkyun is thinking. Shownu, please drop that screamo album. Someone is always screaming at some point and no one knows why. Hyungwon is on his way to becoming an international meme/runway model. #pepewho? #bringwonhosomenoodles<p/><b>Day6:</b> not the Fandom name we wanted, but it's the one we deserve. It's just jae trying to westernize his 4 meme kids, while also attempting to teach them the meaning of life: Bob. Everyone is shook now that JYP finally knows what to do with them. Tough love with father jae, but he totally doesn't hate the second maknae. #lobsterforjae #wonpildumbasalways<p/><b></b> lmao don't be offended by any of this bc I literally have no life so u have nothing to be offended about<p/></p>
This almost looks like Kara is talking to a memory of Cat, a vision.
Why else would Cat be sitting in a dirty alleyway like that? It’s not something Cat would do casually.
This looks like Kara’s final moments with the ghost of her hero.
“Why did it have to be this way, Cat? Why did you have to come back just to leave me again?” Kara asks. She’s tired. She’s cried every tear possible, and now all she can feel is exhaustion.
“I’ll never really leave you, Kara. You should know better. I’m going to haunt you til the end of your days for keeping this secret from me as long as you did.” Cat’s trademark smirk is beautiful and fragile and something about it breaks Kara’s heart further than she thought possible.
“I didn’t want to. I wanted to tell you. I just didn’t know how. Every time you looked at me, I guess… I guess I thought you already knew. There was a spark in your eyes, Cat. There was something there.” Kara shuffles her foot in the gravel of the alleyway, glancing downward, unsure.
“There was something there, you’re right,” Cat said slowly.
The footsteps outside his door were quiet, but not quiet enough. Loki scowled at the book he was trying to translate - and making no headway in. “I told you not to bother me,” he said loudly. “I’m in the middle of something.”
The lack of response was so surprising that Loki looked up, only to start a little. His door was already open, and Thor was standing there staring at Loki like he’d never seen him before. Loki jerked to his feet.
“Thor! You can’t just barge in,” he started to say, but then he realized - it was Thor, but he did not look as he had an hour ago. His hair was longer, for one, and he was taller, broader even than he already was. Loki blinked twice.
“Brother,” Thor said, and there was something odd in his voice. He looked like he wanted to say more, but was lost for words. Loki recovered himself, tensing.
“You are not my brother,” he said.
Thor - or the man who looked like him - flinched. Actually flinched, like Loki had struck him, something flickering across his expression that made Loki’s stomach drop. “I am,” he said. “I think - something has happened.”
“Something? I saw my brother not an hour past-”
“Loki,” the imposter said, his voice oddly strangled. He stepped inside and shut the door, and Loki tensed further, summoning one of his knives. “Are you…” He took a half step toward Loki, reaching out, and he brought the knife up.
“Stay back or I shall call a guard,” he said, keeping his voice from trembling through an effort of will. “Explain yourself. Who are you?”
The man’s jaw worked and it looked like the gesture Thor made when he was upset and trying not to show it. Exactly like, and it was uncanny enough to make Loki feel suddenly cold. “I am who I say,” he said. “And you are - you are Loki.”
Loki fidgeted under the intensity of that gaze fixed on him. “You have no proof of your words,” he accused, buying time. He glanced toward the window - and fell still.
There was dust on his shelves. A thick layer of it, even though a moment before they’d been clean. The window and curtains were closed when he had left them open. And now that he was looking…
A thousand small details. This wasn’t his room.
He felt his chest tighten, fear worming into his heart. Dust. Why should there be dust on his shelves?
Why had Thor looked so surprised to find him here?
Something was very wrong.
“Loki?” Thor sounded uncertain, and that was wrong too, the list only growing longer. “Look at me. Please.”
The please jangled against his strained nerves but Loki turned, unable to ignore him. “Is this the future?” He blurted out, feeling himself start to shake. Thor looked startled and covered it poorly, but for the most part he was still staring at Loki as he had been all this time, with a strange sort of hunger.
“I’m not certain what has happened,” he said at length, which wasn’t an answer.
Loki’s dread deepened. He swallowed hard and looked again at the shelves. At the bed, perfectly made.
“Am I dead?” He asked, and wished his voice didn’t tremble quite as much as it did.
Thor did that little jerk again, like Loki’s words hurt. “Loki,” he said. It wasn’t a no, and Loki felt himself start to shake.
“No,” Thor said abruptly, his voice rough. “No. You are not.” There was something fierce and terrifying and desperate in his voice, and when Loki looked at him, in his eyes. His brother, but…not. Half a stranger. “You live, and I will protect you.”
Listen, suicide is tragic. I’m not going to tell anyone to kill themselves. However, Anyone who prays on the innocence of children and creates a lifetime of damage and abuse by forcing them to fulfil their perverted, disgusting, and dangerous sexual fantasies is beyond selfish and evil and deserves every form of punishment known to man. I don’t care about it being a “condition”.. these people are parasites and add no true value to society.
Children are precious, they should be protected and they’re entitled to grow in a carefree, happy and loving environment. Childhood should be preserved and packed with happy memories and love. I have absolutely no tolerance for any form of abuse to children. If you cause any form of damage to a child, their adult life will pay the price. Leave children the fuck alone.
If I lose followers who happen to be pedophile sympathisers, then cool. Let’s see if your attitude remains if someone close to you is affected.
