this is honestly why i love them so much

anonymous asked:

Whenever you talk about the Type Of Fan that hate on the prequels, I'm always amused and a little proud, and thankful: I wasn't quite one of those, since I wasn't as invested in Star Wars yet in general, but I did spend a long time thinking they were terrible. But oh my god has my opinion changed, and it makes fandom so much more fun. And honestly? A lot of it is thanks to you and other prequel fans, for making me see and appreciate so much that I didn't before. Because now I friggin' LOVE THEM.

anyway, the point of my last long-winded ask was mostly this: you and a few of your friends here pretty much single-handedly turned me from a prequel hater to someone that unapologetically loves them and will basically die on the “Hayden was brilliant as Anakin” hill. And that is why I always kind of smile when you mention That Type Of Fan. ;)

Wow, well, this is pretty much the best possible kind of message I can receive. Thank you so much for sending this to me! 

Someone truly disliking the PT is their business (people do have different tastes! What a concept!) I’m not the kind of fan who’s going to show up at someone’s OT-Only Fan Party or whatever and pitch a fit about how wrong they are, because if it didn’t work for them, it didn’t. But I will admit it hurts my heart a little bit that there are people out there who’ve never even watched the PT because they “heard it was so bad” – or if they do, they go in with only its harshest critics’ voices already in their heads. 

It’s one of the reasons I’ve tried – here and with what I do on Snark Wars – to provide an alternate point of view, and one that does not start every sentence with “Well aside from the fact that they were SO DEEPLY FLAWED, blahblahblah THIS ONE PART WAS OK I GUESS…” No: I just enjoyed these movies. I don’t need to provide an apology to strangers that’s 2 pages long “admitting” their faults in order to say that. It’s just Star Wars; it’s not real life. 😄 

There are so many things I love about Lucas’ prequel trilogy that are in the actual films. But one thing that I find so interesting about them overall is that it really is like the biggest-budget Crazy Person Pet Project EVER. Lucas made the movies he wanted to make with his characters. They were weird, they were wild and fantastical, they were SO not what so many people expected, and he did it anyways. That’s pretty cool. 

(Also the PT gave us Anakin and Obi-Wan and then Lucas had them look like that and like, honestly, what a visionary.) 😉

Alex, what is your favourite moon and mars sign, and why? Have a great day! ^^

My favourite Moon sign is Gemini Moon because they are so much fun to talk to, and if you are feeling down, they don’t hesitate to try their best to cheer you up. They’ve always got jokes up their sleeve and gosh, they’re so fun!! Plus, I love random facts, and they are full of them.

Taurus Mars, they are very docile, don’t get angry often. I feel so at ease with them, and they love hugs and stuff, which seems really cool if it was someone I trusted!! Honestly, for me it’s the fact that they don’t lash out and stuff. If you upset them, they’ll calmly tell you what you did and work with you to get over it. They’re so… mature. And I love it!!

#kdramawomensweek: day 8 // age of youth love-fest | happy international women’s day!

So I pretty much put together some of my favorite scenes from Age of Youth. They’re all scenes that really hit me hard emotionally or just personally resonated with me. When Jin Myung, whose feelings have slowly been bubbling underneath the surface, finally overflows with emotion, full of rage and agony. She finally demands the apology she’s been silently asking for. When she fell to the floor in sobs, I cried with her. I felt that grief. When Yi Na realizes she’s been holding herself back and finally lets herself go. Dammit, that scene just hit me. When Eun Jae blows up and just begs for the housemates to be nice to her I could personally relate to her pain and just how nervous she must have felt to finally let that out and tell these almost strangers how alienated they made her feel and how much it had hurt her. That’s not easy.

As you can see, most of my favorite scenes include the girls all together. The relationship that developed between these girls, different in pretty much every way, from being strangers just living in a house together to sisters that loved and protected each other in any way they could was really the main strength of the show. Even that hilarious scene when the girls beat up Eun Jae’s boyfriend because they think he’s some stranger out to hurt her shows just how willing they are to protect each other. I mean, they burst out of the house the second they heard Eun Jae scream. The girls immediately went to comfort Ye Eun when she finally broke up with a boyfriend she loved so much. And when Eun Jae finally comes home after being out all night, the girls just hug her, saying that everything is okay because she’s here and she’s safe. I’m tearing up just thinking of the scene. That love for each other that made them one of the best friendships of 2016 and just in general.

What I love about the girls individual stories is the journey they went through during the drama and where they ended up. They don’t end the drama suddenly complete and whole, but you know they’ve set themselves on that track. They learn to start forgiving and loving themselves. The ghosts they’ve lived with are never completely gone but they’re not held back and tortured by them anymore.

Anyway, what I really want to say is that I love these girls so so so so so much. There’s really nothing I can say that can convey the amount of love I have for this drama and the Belle Epoque girls. It warms my heart when I think of them and I’m just so happy there’s going to be a season 2.

Come on cry with me cause I can’t be crying all on my own  that’s sad

When your two kittens fall asleep on you

I don’t know why I keep drawing them like thisXD I guess athough I love them being punk and grumpy buddies I also enjoy the idea of the two of them being trusting and relaxed around each other. I’m honestly starting to feel bad for Otabek, how this guy manages to get anything done when there’s always at least one cat sleeping on him? Also guys do you have ideas how their mugs should look like? I made them simple because I like simple but give me some crazy ideas:D

And thank you so much for all the likes and rebloggs under my previous works. You guys keep me going and you are the best. Love you all!<3

PS. Also I should be called style fluid artist. You could be staring at two of my artworks and never guess they’re both mine;)

a ship that needs more love >> emmett & rosalie cullen

I got luckier than I deserved. Emmett is everything I would have asked for if I’d known myself well enough to know what to ask for. He’s exactly the kind of person that someone like me needs. And, oddly enough, he needs me, too.

i love how All Might swears in english like he’s trying not to corrupt the pure tiny little children or something, but instead he’s just introduced them to Cool New Foreign Swears and honestly i’m  convinced that he’s 99.9% the reason why Bakugou swears so much in the first place b/c he figured out his hero swears all the goddamn time when he was 6

MORE UNDER THE CUT.

Keep reading

I don’t think people realize what rare and beautiful gifts really good full AMVs are.

Like… that’s hard. Really, really hard.

Something I’ve learned is that the longer you’ve been editing, the more time it takes to make an edit, which is probably the reason AMVs can take literal months to make, and most vidders usually cut the songs down and/or make short edits.

To keep up consistently good timing, clip choice, pacing, transitions, effects, and possibly even masking or typography over give or take three and a half minutes of song is a huge challenge.

It’s generally considered to take three hours to edit one minute of a movie. Apply that here, and we have it taking about nine hours for a fairly short AMV… and given that we don’t get paid to make these, and have to wrestle with hitting every single beat of the song, it can take much longer.

And we also have to keep our motivation up, find time to edit, not grow to detest the song, and struggle with technical difficulties. All of that is really grating.

I’ve been editing for a couple months over a year now, and, while I started out making almost exclusively full AMVs, I can’t do that anymore. I’ve improved a lot, and by this point, using the whole song is intimidating and requires a level of dedication that I could not possibly achieve every time I edit.

It’s been literally a year since the last time I’ve edited a full-length song that I didn’t trim.

So if you find an awesome full AMV, appreciate it! Tell the vidder that you love it!

I’m honestly just so in awe of AMVs and the people who edit them. Vidders are really badass.

Cherish them and their work.

anonymous asked:

Why do you like Damon? I love Gorillaz but Damon himself is a self righteous ass.

Oh boy.

Alright, well. You asked.

Damon’s a big inspiration to me. He’s dealt with so much, but he continues to work hard, and he’s honestly one of the most talented artists I know.

I’m not saying that going through difficult times makes you a hero, but it’s definitely something I look up to in a person when they don’t let it bring them down no matter what.

I mean, Damon was bullied in school just because the other kids thought he was gay.
He wasn’t afraid to express himself and he was, and still is, extremely passionate, and he embraces his bisexuality.

He’s dealt with addiction, and he got through it, writing down songs and working hard to deal with the things he’s been through and share them with the world.

Damon always tries so hard, even to this day.

The guy is almost 50 and he’s obviously tired as hell, but he’s back with his work and the fans, and he’s doing brilliantly.

Watching him so happy and wild on stage, even today, is bloody delightful.

Is he stern sometimes? Yeah. Prone to making people like you dislike him and think he’s obnoxious? Sure.
Everyone has their opinions, and that’s okay.

But I mean it when I say he’s one of the most genuine, most thoughtful, and seriously talented people I look up to. 

He’s spoken up about so many causes, and he’s active and supportive to countless groups, and he works so hard to bring real messages to people through his music.

He’s so kind and caring to those close to him.
He adores his friends and his family, and he’s expressed how important his fans are to him.

I’ve never met him. But it’s obvious he’s talented as hell, and so real, and hard working, and funny, and down to earth, and intelligent, and honest, and kind.

He’s someone who isn’t scared to show what he’s been through and how he’s survived and succeeded by trying and trying and trying to do what he loves and to make his fans happy.

I’m one of those fans, and I have been for years, and I don’t think that’ll ever change.
I love Damon with all my heart, and I’m so, so happy he’s back and performing and having fun and doing what makes HIM happy.

Honestly, if I were to talk about ALL the reasons why I love Damon, we’d be here forever.
So I’ll just wrap this up by saying that I’m so grateful to him, and all that he’s done, and all that he’s still doing, and I’m so glad so many people feel the same.

Because, whether you believe it or not, it makes sense as to why he’s so liked.

He’s wonderful. ❤️

honestly supercorp has had such a nice slowburn of their friendship from ‘and who are you exactly?’ to ‘she’s my friend and i believe in her’ and ‘you are my hero’ and ‘i will always protect you’ and now ‘best friend’ and ‘i can see why kara loves you’

like that’s a whole season of building up their friendship from strangers to best friends, this is the perfect foundation for them to have a slowburn relationship in season 3 just saying. a relationship that isn’t rushed, has had so much build up and mostly!! so much chemistry!!

Dinner

Pairings: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Request:

How about a Whacky Bucky x F!Reader chatroom? Bucky and Y/N have been secretly dating from the team, but when they try setting up Y/N with someone, will Bucky explode or keep it cool? Then when the couple spills the beans Tony and Clint get protectiv

Steve has joined the chat.

Y/N has cleared the chat.

Bucky has cleared the chat.

Steve: Why did you clear the chat? I don’t mind, really. You don’t have to hide. It’s okay. Just tell me the truth.

With Phil's tweet about him turning the light off, idk what thought is more amusing, dan asking him what the fuck he's doing with turning the light on and off or dan being in such a deep sleep the whole night he doesn't even notice phil doing that. I love both those ideas very much and I'm disappointed that we'll never know which one was the right idea but it's just fun to imagine honestly.

It’s so cute, isn’t it? Also completely confirms to me that they shared PJ’s nook/loft bed, because in his nook tour video (link) at 40 seconds in he shows that the surge protector is plugged in at the head of the bed in the perfect position to be jostled by a pillow.

and look if you don’t understand why it’s just vitally important for me to imagine them cuddling high up in a fairy light draped loft bed with a view of the sea then idk what to tell you

He can’t get enough air. “I fucked up, Gwen, and I’m sorry. Do you want that in writing?”

  3. A Personal History of Midwestern Running: 20K, T, hahah the ending kills me every time, the one where arthur teaches merlin how to run

My impression about the new Castlevania series on Netflix:

  • Late 90’s anime aesthetic for the win.
  • Oh Dracula is going to fuck your shit up. And honestly, I don’t really blame him.
  • I imagine grandma going back to her house after the confrontation with Dracula and just leaving. “Why are we going?” “Don’t ask questions, Timmy. Just get in the wagon. We’re leaving. Now.”
  • You know, Dracula, when you promise people a year to get their stuff together and leave you really shouldn’t rain fire down on them 30 seconds later.
  • Am I actually listening to a conversation about fucking goats? What the hell?
  • Trevor Belmont is a snarky shit and I love him. So much. So very, very much.
  • The dialogue. I could sing odes about how awesome this dialogue is. Someone should give Trevor all the lines.
  • Wow that is a lot of blood. I feel like red ink was on sale when they made this show.
  • I admit it I laughed when the merchants were trying to get intestines down with a broom. “New morning, same shit as always.”
  • I’m rather happy they’ve worked in some of the enemies from the original Castlevania games.
  • Kick-ass female character yes! Even better, snarky and competent kick-ass female character.
  • Trevor does not like being sober. 0 out of 5 stars. Would not recommend.
  • OMG, Alucard, you can sleep in tight ass leather pants but putting a shirt on is just a step too far?!?!
  • They put Alucard’s fucking ridiculously long sword in there.
