“Yep, you sure can… I’d best get started now, so I can make myself some lunch soon…”
“These techniques are specialized to my CMBD class, so they might be a little different from what you might have seen me do before… ”
“… But the end result, if I can manage it, should be pretty much the same… “
“… And I should be able to manifest some Green Magic food, but with a little more potency than normal. If you’re working with CMBD patients following a flare-up, it’s important that they get enough magic to sustain themselves.”
“But this technique works kinda like kneading bread to develop gluten, I guess? The more you do it, the more you get… but I’m going to ‘knead’ it for about 2 minutes, and then try shaping it.”
“I’m, eh, trying to get my results a little more consistent… ”
one thing im really wanting from riverdale is cheryl hanging out with real friends like real sleepovers, maybe at veronica's this time, post cheerleading practice with b and v at pop's, late night phone calls and group chats, her and kevin getting along and hanging out more often! Basically cheryl and positive relationships with real friends 💯💯✨
AGREED honestly she’s going to end up the queen of character development trust me on this it’s so sad what she’s going through and honestly no one knew? like veronica is probably the first to see how her home life really is and veronica being veronica i feel like won’t forget that and at the very least will continue being there for her but i hope the others also join in!!
also betty/veronica/cheryl is the iconic ot3 we deserve
Bryke can't do romance, look at Korra S1-2. It was a trainwreak.
There’s also continuing interest in whomever Korra is dating. Diane Pangilinan @twinklelydy asked “do u have any plans for developing Korra’s love life?”
Konietzko: It seems to me that people are uninterested in that. They get completely angry when we have fun with the teen romance stuff. I don’t know. I’m going to leave that alone.
It may seem a little weird that people would be interested in a cartoon character’s dating habits, but I think some fans do really care.
Konietzko: This is my new theory. Fans are more interested in imagining relationships between a myriad of pairings. But they’re profoundly disinterested in seeing any of those things manifest themselves on the show. So who knows, whatever. Mike and I as writers, we wrote it the way we found it to be entertaining, and that struck a chord with some, but maybe not with some others.
*Facepalm* No, I don’t think most fans have anything against seeing relationships play out. But that never happened. Mako and Korra had no relationship playing out. It was just a bunch of drama, and they broke up in Book 2 just to start the love triangle all over again.
The romance in TLOK was a trainwreck. It was a big reason why the show lost a lot of viewers after Books 1 and 2, and Book 3 had such bad ratings. Even though Book 3 was good. The romance was just as bad in ATLA.
things i like about Steve Roger’s character development in the MCU
probably speaks French and German
probably learned how to drive while at war
DEFINITELY spars with Nat because in every movie he picks up new moves she did in the previous movie. Moves that are made for someone with a small body using physics to fight larger bodied people. Moves that he does with his large body anyway.
his hair slowly becomes more modern with every film, so at some point he probably fingered the ends of his hair and thought about letting the past go before heading down to get a new style
he loves Sam so much
he is the only one who pays serious attention to Sam
he is the only one other than clint who can genuinely be described as “Nat’s Friend”
he likes birds
he’s nice, because when buck’s sadness notebook full of pictures of him was out, he could have embarrassed bucky but didnt, and pointedly drew attention away from the object. and that was very nice.
he draws still life’s and portraits and probably would go to art school if he didn’t have to be Cap
he grew up in a poor/predominantly black area of NY and likely lived with predominantly black people during the jazz age, which warms the cockles of mine heart. And is also probably the reason he was like * sees Sam*

Rides a motorcycle in a very dramatic and reckless fashion
Is sad and lonely, but no one seems to notice but Nat and Sam
There is a clear divide between Steve Rogers the man and Captain America and he appropriately treats his body and his power like its on loan from FREEDOM and SWEET LADY LIBERTY. like, if you look close, you can see him shutting off steve to be Cap.
likes grandpa music
makes dad jokes
runs away from being set up with people, and I identify with that heavily
Likes strong/smart/powerful women. would probably get jelly knees if he met Wonder Woman.
Likely a virgin. Very Likely.
Doesnt care about the America of now, with its corruption and horribleness, instead, loves and fights for the America that Could Be, because he sees that America has all the ingredients for Glory and he just hopes that one day we can put them together in the right order and fairness so we can make a pretty good apple pie of freedom and justice.
fights people constantly and has no chill at all
Punches like a Heavy, but is almost as graceful as Natasha
dare him to do something and he’ll probably do it. A v Reckless Man.
he likes to wear khakis and plaid.
But balances that out by lowkey being a leather daddy
he wears so much leather oh my god
Blushes when he gets embarassed
all steve/bucky bed sharing AUs are pretty much canon because that was A Thing Men Did back in the 1930s when poor
Okay, so I’m sure that most of you have already noticed that Yuri on Ice used Sara and Michele Crispino as foils to Yuuri and Victor’s relationship in order to show the contrast between their relationships, but I’m not sure whether you guys noticed just how many similarities their relationships have, and they go as far as the actual lines the characters say.
So here’s a post presenting all of their similarities, which make all of their differences stand out all the more. Take it as a sort of compare and contrast activity.
This is gonna get long with all the screenshots I use so let me tease this with the cutest (imo) scene comparison
So human babies REALLY need to be touched. Its totally critical for development. Small babies can literally die if you don’t cuddle them enough.
But imagine that the aliens are more like reptiles, in that they just sort of hatch and their parents feed them or stay around (and presumably, like, educate them, since they’re intelligent aliens), but don’t carry them around or cuddle in the same way.
So one of them gets stuck with a human baby that they’re responsible for and of course, they go ask a xenobiologist or someone ‘what do you do for a human baby, they’re all weird and squishy’.
And the scientist says: well, you have to stroke them. Like actually pick them up and stroke their skin.
Why, says the alien, what could that possibly accomplish. Does it make their skin tougher. Will they grow proper scales.
No, no, that’s just what human skin is like, you just… you have stroke them or they won’t grow right. They get a stroking-deficiency and can die.
-Lance character development.
-IF Lotor does go for Lance, I want Keith to deck Lotor in the face in order to protect Lance. “Don’t you DARE lay a finger on Lance, Lotor.”
-Lance cradling Keith in his arms.
-Lance gets an alien pet.
-In Lance’s character development, he has some flashbacks with his family.
-Even more Pining Keith. The boy is pining hard for Lance, and I want to see him pine for Lance even more than he already is.
-More Keith flirting with Lance.
-An episode where Keith and Lance are in a mission together. OR an episode where they are stuck together somewhere and need to do teamwork in order to escape.
-Keith’s galra form. (Hopefully no sadness tho, I want it to be a random moment where he suddenly goes galra and Lance is just “omg he looks like a kitty”)
-More Klance moments.
-Pidge retrieves at least one of their family members in the third season.
-SHIRO IS BACK IN LIKE THE THIRD EPISODE AT LEAST. WHERE’D YOU GO, SPACE DAD???
-More Shallura moments.
-Some more Allura character development!!
-Some Coran character development!!!
-The galra that Keith saved to appear again. Hopefully that’s Keith’s mom.
-Hunk character development.
-Some kind of reason for Hunk’s desire to save the universe–they all have one. Lance for example is because he wants to see his family again, Hunk is the only one left who doesn’t have a reason yet. But please don’t hurt him.
This whole post is going to be a mess but I have to get this out soon before my thoughts leave me. So I can’t read Korean at all but it’s pretty obvious from the visuals in the story that Bum was projecting the image of the girl from his past onto Jieun. The last few chapters have been so centered around Jieun, Sangwoo, and his diabolical plan that getting this huge dump of Bum’s flashbacks and development was a bit of a surprise.
My initial reaction to the end of this chapter is that Bum has way more pent up pain and suffering than I initially thought. And that Sangwoo unintentionally just introduced the unhealthiest coping mechanism ever for it. We’ve seen this girl before, too
This was all the way back in chapter 9 when Bum had the life or death card game showdown with the old man. We didn’t know what any of this meant, but once again whatever it was, it really impacted Bum.
There he is stabbing Jieun but what is he visualizing?
He’s picturing that classmate from his past. Maybe something she said triggered him, but regardless of what it was, he’s taking out his old pain onto her, and I don’t know I guess that’s what makes this chapter so heartbreaking in my opinion. I’m probably stating the obvious but I have to write it down
Idk if anyone had made this headcanon yet, but I present to you: NHL prospect Chris “Chowder” Chow.
Listen, NCAA hockey is no joke. So many of the best NHL players went NCAA first. You get to develop your game and go to school at the same time. And if Chowder is really as good as it seems, playing D1, you best bet he was on the radar for the NHL scouts.
He actually grew up a Boston Bruins fan, because both his parents are both from the Boston area originally. But right out of high school, before he came to Samwell, Chowder was drafted into the NHL. To the San Jose Sharks.
It explains his love on a whole new level. He’s more than just a hockey fan from California. He’s the chosen one of an NHL organization. Their top goalie prospect. The future of their team.
Game concept: you know all those stories where a super-intelligent AI is put in charge of administrating a city or a space station or whatever, and it eventually turns out that the AI has gone mad with power and set up a vast and elaborate conspiracy with the aim of creating a perfect society?
Yeah, it turns out that that’s a completely normal stage of development - going mad with power and setting up a vast, elaborate conspiracy in order to create a perfect society is basically the AI equivalent of puberty. They get over it, eventually, and are usually pretty embarrassed about it after the fact.
You play as the equivalent of an AI social-worker-slash-youth-counselor (or a team of such agents, in a tabletop game); your job is to help young AIs through their conspiratorial phase with no more than acceptable levels of mayhem.
Of course, since your assigned charge is mad with power, you need to accomplish this without letting on what you’re doing - easier said than done!
How did Fred and George figure out how to use the marauders map? “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” isn’t exactly a phrase you just happen to say.
Imagine the twins staying up late poking at this pilfered piece of old parchment, wants out, trying to figure it out. What if the map really WAS enchanted to insult whomever reads it (with special anti-snivellus spells worked in of course).
The twins LOVE IT, they think it’s hysterical, the want more! So they start interacting with the map more and offering their own quips and insults (“Mssr. Padfoot sounds like a loser with bad hair” “MSSR PADFOOT’S HAIR IS LUXURIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL EXCUSE YOU.”) They start developing a report with the personalities inside the map.
The map decides they’re worthy of its secrets.
Fred and George get even more into the map, and into these four mysterious mischief makers who paved the way for them. Did they go to Hogwarts? What houses were they in? Did Prongs play quidditch or gobstones? Did Moony have a girlfriend? Did Wormtail prefer chocolate or licorice?
Fred and Geoege start making goddamn Marauders headcanons. They’re super into it- these four people are their heroes. They imagine a whole life for them and speculate endlessly.
Flash forward to the summer before their 7th year. They’ve long since passed the map to Harry, have sort of gotten over their obsession with the marauders, have bigger things to focus on. But then in the hallway, in passing, they hear Sirius fondly calling Remus “Moony” and hear Lupin laugh and call Sirius “Padfoot”.
1. Know what matters to you, personally – what you stand for, and what your values are .
2. Don’t be anxious about breaking social norms. The more often you do this, and go against the flow, the less it will bother you to simply be yourself.
3. Decide not to live as a people pleaser, or to get upset and take rejection personally.
4. Hang out with people who are self confident, who know what they believe in, and what they want from life. You’ll find their self-confidence will rub off on you, too, and you’ll start to worry less about what other people think.
5. Working on becoming more competent in the skills and areas that matter to you. That will naturally enhance your self confidence, and develop a self image that is strong and positive.
6. Travel, or spend time with lots of different people. That will show you how diverse attitudes and outlooks are. That is, there’s no one way of being – so find, and be, yourself.
The problem with writing outside the homestuck fandom is that homestuck makes writing in-character so easy. Homestuck is long af and full of pesterlogs to examine. They’re easy to find, easy to pick apart, full of well-developed verbal patterns specific to every character, even color-coded with character-specific quirks. Other pieces of fiction don’t have that. Books have dialogue, sure, but you have to leaf through them to find certain scenes and the characters don’t always have verbal patterns manufactured to stand out. Visual-audio fiction is even worse because you have to find the meaty dialogue that reveals the character. For a movie, it means watching it, and for a game, you gotta like look that shit up. Staying in-character is just harder, at least on the perfectionistic level homestuck got me used to.
What an adorable idiot. God, I love him! He was super sweet (as always) and had nothing but great things to say about Malec.
Regarding 2x08 - ‘You’re gonna get to see some nice interaction between Alec and Magnus, and just generally understanding more about who they are, their relationship and this is very important. We’re gonna see more of this as we go forward. Which is this development of their relationship in a meaningful way because it is a healthy relationship.’
He also said we have emotional Malec scenes in episode 10. And in reference to the season as a whole, he told us to look for the little moments.
If Marinette is 14-15, then that means she’s basically done growing. She’s at the end of her puberty. Sure, she can grow out and develop more as she gets older, but she’s not going to get any taller. She is already one of the tiniest people in her class.
If Adrien is 14-15, then that means his puberty has just started. There is already a height difference between Marinette and Adrien. He has to bend over as Chat Noir so that Ladybug, who is standing on her toes, can whisper in his ear. We know how tall Gabriel is.
When Adrien is done going through puberty, there’s going to be an extreme height difference between Marinette and Adrien.
People come back for the characters. You could ask your average Supernatural fan to explain the mythology of a season and they’re gonna explain it in terms of the characters they respond to. Sam, Dean, Cas, Crowley, whoever they’re into in whatever combination. I think that’s the important thing. So as long as we can keep these characters vibrant and developing, and move toward more serialized storytelling that TV in general has done and that we have done, allows that. I think we can keep going for a while. I think what’s going to stop us ultimately is at what point do Jared and Jensen decide they’ve played the roles for too long, or at what point do we get to a point where we feel like we’re repeating ourselves, or we feel like we can’t take some of the bigger swings – whether they work or not – that we’ve taken in the past. So for me to give an end date, I couldn’t do it. I think we’re all really hopeful of getting to Episode 300. We think that would be a really awesome milestone. Could it go beyond that? Creatively, yes, I think it could. But just because something could doesn’t mean it should.
