this is like the 5th time or something

anonymous asked:

wait if it's not too much of a pain/too personal can you explain why your fellow kiwis think you're foreign?

Not too personal at all! It’s mostly just my accent. Apparently I don’t sound ‘traditionally kiwi’ by any means, so whenever people meet me for the first time they will often ask “Oh, how long have you been in the county? Do you like it here?” and stuff like that. 

It’s not a big deal, but it’s fun because I’ve lived here 99% of my life. 

A lot of people asked for this one (you all sinners), so I decided to took my time and made an animation. And that’s why it took me almost 3 week (so sorry for being late!)

I was going to colored it but photoshop is crashed on me tonight. So…maybe later…who knows. There are some obvious mistakes cause like…this is my 5th animation?but is a good practice and i actually enjoy doing them.

Translations for the 5th DVD Extra Comic!

Here you are, @fancy-hat-imagines! You were looking for someone to translate it so if you didn’t mind, I was able to translate this cute extra comic!

I apologize that if you see big blobs of random colors in the speech bubbles- I was unsure how to color them in because this wasn’t scanned… Also, it’s my first time ever doing something like this sooo…. Not my best ;P

My translations aren’t the best either ahaha… I haven’t read Japanese in sooo long! It’s been awhile! But please enjoy!

DISCLAMIER: Although this is crappy scans + translations, I would like it if you do not repost this in any other social media without my permission! It looks poopy, but it kinda took me awhile rippp :’)))

ANOTHER DISCLAIMER (omg I know): The original pictures do not belong to me! They belong to the rightful owner :)

I remember once, my father and I were walking down 5th Avenue, and there was a homeless person sitting right outside of Trump Tower. And I think I was probably nine, ten something like this, it was right around the time as the divorce. And I remember my father pointing to him and saying ‘That guy has $8 billion more than me.’ Because he was in such extreme debt at that point. And me thinking ‘What are you talking about?’ He was sitting outside of Trump Tower, and I didn’t understand. I just thought about it a year or two ago and thought it interesting. It makes me all the more proud of my parents that they got through that.
—  Ivanka Trump. Boy, the Trump dynasty sure understands class struggle…

Your lips were numb and you couldn’t feel your feet as your hit the cold ground. God, why does winter have to so cold? You huddled your bag closer to your shoulder and shivered as another chilling breeze came rolling by. This sucked. Here you are, a journalist, ready to interview a famous novelist, and you can barely feel your fingers. This’ll go great.

fluffy wolfstar headcanon (first kiss)

One day Sirius realizes he hasn’t had his first kiss yet and that bugs him so he asks James if he wants to practice “just to see what it would be like”. James says no because he wants his first kiss to be with Lily (because James is a ridiculous romantic dork) and he jokingly suggests Sirius should ask Remus or Peter. 

Peter, who witnessed the whole conversation, immediately makes a disgusted sound and refuses Sirius before he even had a chance to ask - because James did so too and Peter is way too insecure to do something so “unmanly” like practicing kissing with another guy, even if it all happens in the 5th year Gryffindors boy’s dorm. So that day during dinner, Sirius confronts Remus (his last hope!) with this idea. James is suppressing his laughter  when sirius just suddenly turns to remus and says without any warning: “hey moony fancy snogging me some time for practice?“ Remus almost drops his fork and stares at his friend, mouth open for a few seconds and then starts to laugh hysterically which unfortunately turns into a coughing fit because he had been eating. Sirius frowns and makes his sad puppy dog eyes. James is laughing while Peter claps Remus back supportively.

The following weeks Sirius keeps complaining and nagging about his lack of experience in kissing and he ignores all of James’ remarks about how Sirius should just ask a girl because „You’re missing the point, James! I want to practice.“ and because moony’s reaction to his proposal had been the best (and also because for some reason Sirius actually gets kinda excited about the thought of kissing Remus but he doesn’t really know why) he keeps suggesting it to Remus at odd times. Sirius creeps up behind moony in the middle of potions and says:"snog me moony” which causes remus to throw way too much knotgrass into his potion which then explodes what leads to detention for all 4 marauders because the professors have given up a long time ago to make a distinction between them - usually they’re always all involved somehow.

Then Sirius asks him again another day during transfiguration and on the same evening in the dorm, while James has quidditch practice and Peter is out there too watching James, Remus is pacing around the dorm because the full moon is only one night away and he already feels restless and tense. Sirius is sitting on his bed, trying to study but he gets distracted by Remus. He almost snaps at him to stop pacing around but then he remembers it’s because of the full moon so he just asks him if he needs anything and if he should maybe turn into Padfoot to calm him down? moony declines and keeps pacing around in a circle, sometimes looking out of the window to the almost-full moon. sirius starts to ramble about things to distract his friend - he’s talking about school and pranks and quidditch and then he talks about girls and about how Kingsley Shacklebolt has a girlfriend now and moony just snaps, makes three long steps to sirius bed and says “ALRIGHT SIRIUS I’LL DO IT” and kisses him. Sirius is so shocked he breathes in and it’s all messy and their teeth clench but then suddenly it’s amazing and he never wants it to end and he tugs on moony’s sweater to get him closer and they are so distracted by the kiss that they don’t even realize James and Peter standing in the doorway staring at them and looking slightly traumatized.

Shinnosuke, the 5th Yurakutei Kikuhiko

The first time I saw Shinnosuke without glasses, I thought he really look like Sukeroku!

But then, the more I look at him, there’s something strange about his face… There’s this weird nostalgic feeling coming from that smile.

And when he’s finally on stage, I was like….
Kiku-san…?

Those eyes… Yeah, he really look like him, moreover, he is indeed the new Yurakutei Kikuhiko.

It’s not that I forced you to believe Higuchi’s speculation earlier in the episode, but it can’t be denied that there is a part of Kikuhiko inside him, not just his personality or gestures, but like…. The dead rakugo master’s blood runs inside him. Yeah, even thought this is truly the grand finale of the previous Kikuhiko’s story, there will always be a new Kikuhiko, his name will live on forever, and Shinnosuke’s journey as the new Kikuhiko is just about to begin now.

Pure (Remus)

Requested- 1) Just a fluffy Reamus imagine? You can make up the story you want😊 2) Can you do a Remus one where it’s the triwizard tournament time for them ( but they aren’t in their 4th year but like 5th, 6th or 7th) and they both want to ask each other to the ball but the reader ( who’s family pure blood and is all about bloods purity and even though the readers a gryffindor they don’t see her as a blood traitor ) gets forced to go to the ball with regulus or someone because of the whole blood purity thing and Remus thinks she likes Reg or something but like (next message)

A/n- I combined both requests and well, the next message never came, so I’ll just go with my plot??

- - -

Your heart sank when your mother called you over, holding your hands in hers. “Y/n, I’ve heard that the Triwizard Tournament is coming up this year! And you know that each time they have a ball where boys ask girls to be their date right, darling?” You nodded, knowing that she was about to ask you to do something you wouldn’t like since it has happened every time she holds your hand like that. She continued, “I want you to go with Regulus Black.”

“Regulus Black?” You furrowed your eyebrows. “Can’t I choose to go with someone by myself?”

“He’s a nice boy from a family with a good reputation.” Your mother added, seeming firm and certain about her decision. “Your father agrees on this.”

“… A good reputation, you mean their blood status.” You looked away, feeling disgusted. You love your family, but you don’t really believe in the beliefs they have. Your Pureblood family was all about that blood purity “tradition.”

“Yes, honey! I know how you feel about this, but it is really important for our y/l/n family. Promise me that you’ll go with Regulus? Please?”

“Fine.” You said, before breaking free of your mother’s hands and returning to your room.

A few people asked for a step-by-step animation process.
I’mnot too fond of doing these, as I’m still learning myself -
but hopefullythis is kind of helpful?

So here’s what I do for animation taken from a reference.

1st image: The reference. (Taken from BeyondSlowMotion)
The footage cut before the entire action of the dog jumping ended, so I’m taking info for the landing from a later clip.
This action is all done straight ahead.
So I’d put my keysdown one after the other, quite rough – until I get something like this (1st image)

2nd Image: Next I’ll go back into it, arrange the keys apart to create some contrast in the timing, and rough it out a little bit more. Taking note of arcs etc…

3rd Image: Then I would do my clean up. Still doing some adjustments on timing

4th Image: I’d put in the colour and shadows, and would then export .png sequences of this from TVP.

5th and final image: I’d bring these sequences into after effects, and add camera movement/lighting/colour adjusting etc…
Then import video frames to layers in photoshop, and save as a .gif! :) (Lost a good bit of quality on the final gif..)

fucking salad fingers, ok

i don’t think anyone who didn’t find salad fingers by themselves or through a friend understands how truly terrifying salad fingers was

I think i was like, ten??? and my best friend was like “oh man you’ve got to see this thing called salad fingers!!” and I was kinda like… ok…. that does not sound like a fun happy 5th grade good time but ok

so we’re at her house and she has a COMPUTER to herself (rly big deal back in the day) and she knows how to TYPE and she slaps something into the url bar and clicks and. there’s salad fingers.

holy shit. holy sHIT. it was terrifying. she loved it and I was beyond disturbed. who is this deformed green man with his rusty spoons. WHY IS THIS SO SCARY?

this was not a fun happy 5th grade good time. my friend was thrilled. I think I screamed.

you have to remember to that I was at an age when I hadn’t really discovered the internet yet- I think I frequented neopets and maybe an anime chat room. The internet was a largely unexplored place for me. and out of its depths, out of the bowels of the internet comes this deeply disturbing deformed green man without proper fingers who. seems to be hallucinating. I don’t know. how do you explain salad fingers? where do you start???

 There were no advertisements on other websites for this by the way. No one was blogging about it, this was before it went viral, it was not seen on any google ads. It just existed in the free form space of the internet and somehow my best friend found it, thought it was awesome, and passed it on through word of mouth. terrifying. imagine a group of about 50 ten year olds creepily muttering “I love rusty spoons” and then laughing hysterically. that is all I remember from the fifth grade.

anyway the original website seems to be gone now but here’s a playlist of all the salad fingers videos. there were only three when I watched them and I plan on never watching any of the new ones ever. no thanks

enjoy

Just how?!

So, there is this girl who lives near me, she was referred to the Nottingham GIC THREE months before me and she is waiting for her 5th appointment with them now, and I haven’t even had the letter for my first one?! How is that even possible? Like that is literally insane?! It was supposed to be a 10 month waiting time, but I will have been waiting for 19 months in February for my FIRST appointment? 

I just don’t understand how 3 months can make that much of a difference? Surely I should’ve heard something from them by now? I have spoke to my GP and spoke to the GIC directly so I know I’m on the waiting list but this is such a pain in the ass!!!

Fuck this, next month I’m going private, screw waiting.

Snow Scene(?) Nagi rabbitchat 5th story

紡「これからも私たちと一緒にいてくださいね」
Tsumugi: “Please stay with us from now on too!”
ナギ「ええ。時間の許す限り、ずっとね」
Nagi: “Yes. I’ll always stay, as long as time permits.”

… Up until now, Nagi has always been so positive and said things like “I’m here with you” or “I look forward to next year!”. Even in Restart Pointer Rabbitchat he said “It is my dream to always stay in this dorms with everyone even after we become gramps. I know it is impossible but, I’m free to dream it, right?”

Basically he has always told us that him being with IDOLiSH7 is a certain thing and we don’t have to worry..

But this time, he said “as long as time permits”. He put a ‘timelimiter’ here. This is so disturbing. What will happen to him in story part 3?? am I thinking too much??

The Foreshadowing of Kanan and Ezra's fate

We have been getting hints that make me believe Kanan and Ezra took the Phantom II together and are away from the Rebellion to keep Vader from finding them. The 5th and the 7th Inquisitors were able to track them easily even when they weren’t as powerful as they are now. If/when the Inquisitors resume their hunt for them, it will endanger the rest of the fleet… so they need to leave. It wouldn’t be the first time they do something like that, as it happened when they went to Malachor. They were expecting to be away for a long, long time (Zeb even thought that by the time they would be back, the war would be over and they could exchange stories).

Also, if we take into consideration the Temple Guardian’s warning back in Lothal we know that if Kanan would die fighting the Inquisitors/Vader, Ezra will fall…

“Try to fight, and you will fail. The Rebellion will be destroyed. You will die, and your apprentice will become a servant of evil.”

That is… telling. Ezra loves Kanan the most from his Space Family and it would simply destroy him to see him getting killed. Vader would force him into becoming an Inquisitor. Also… Kanan’s test was to accept the limits of what he could do to protect Ezra. Fighting them head on would only spell doom for both of them.

As stated on The Mystery of Chopper Base:

Kanan: You lose, you die.

Ezra: Yeah, and you win by killing an Inquisitor.

Kanan: No. You win by surviving.

Sooo… the facts are: we know the Rebellion is not destroyed. We also know the Phantom II is not with the Ghost at Scarif… and the consensus is that there are no more Inquisitors on the Empire or other Jedi working for the Rebellion by ANH. From that I infer that they heed the Guard’s warning and eventually took off to protect Ezra and keep the Rebellion from getting found by Vader.

About Nikolai Krasotkin, aka 'Let's see if I can resurrect people too' (CONTAINS SPOILERS)

So after rewatching the Empire of Corpses for the 5th time in a week (somebody send help how do I quit this self-inflicted torture) I realised something.
It’s just a theory, or maybe I am completely oblivious and everyone thinks so already, but please follow my reasoning here. I promise I will try to make sense.

(The following contains spoilers. Please do not read unless you have watched the movie)

So, first time round I had assumed Nikolai was definitely dead by the end of the story. And by “dead” I mean zombified - unable to live a normal life just like Friday for most of the movie, to feel anything at all, stuck in that limbo alongside Alexei. Which made me really sad, as I loved Nikolai, and thought of him as an awesome role with lots of character.

Yet I felt something was a little off:

- We see Friday regain his humanity right at the end after Watson’s “death” and the absorption/sealing of Victor’s notes, pretty much out of nowhere and no specific further explanation is provided.

- My guess would be his soul has finally managed to come back because it’s not “stuck” anymore or kept under control by the First, who has died during the previous scene. We clearly see most of the people who had died during the Babbage attack get their souls back, and pretty much everyone that had been affected comes back to life.

- During the Babbage attack, we are shown a few scenes depicting everyone around the world being deprived of their soul in order to form one huge entity and bring the First’s bride back to life. “The analytical computer has touched the souls of the dead worldwide”. We even see some of the same characters from the previous scene all over again.

- Finally, by the end of the attack and during the epilogue after the credits, there are no more zombies left. We assume the world has come back to normality and eveything is fine.

- Which in conclusion, makes me think everyone that had been affected by the attack or the necromancy (which means, wasn’t ACTUALLY dead) is indeed ALIVE, and that would naturally include Nikolai, because why would he be an exception after all? His soul must have been stuck somewhere just like Friday’s, so… Why not?

What do you reckon?
Are Nikolai and Alexei also alive?
Feel free to throw in suggestions and discuss this, I am very curious to see what you think!
