About the galran stranger they met in the alien’s belly! (THEORY)


Please read this lovely post theorising about female galras because I might be refering to it

My theory is this, though:

The galran stranger has been in that belly for a looooong time.

If you look at the armour of the galran stranger, it looks very different to what we’ve seen so far! It’s usually completely gray with purple accents or completely gray/black with coloured accents in the chest area, I believe. But I don’t recall having seen orange used, either. I dunno, it just strikes me like a different uniform/armour the galra we’ve seen so far used.

The part of the galaxy with all the destroyed planets also doesn’t seem to have been destroyed recently but even looks very old (yet again, this is only MY impression, though). 

We also know that the energy source the altean castle uses -those blue plates- are actually rather old, it’s hard to get a grip of them nowadays, hell the guy at the space mall that sold them to Coran didn’t even know what he had, those plates looked like dishes to him! But the galran stranger took one of the bags filled with them without hesitation.
(How the hell did the galran stranger even leave if their ship had exploded before?! THAT is truly confusing!) Anyway, this is another thing that suggests that the galran stranger has been there for quite a long time, though, I don’t think it’s been 10 000 years, but certainly long enough to come from a time when those energy sources for wormholes were more known. 

So, yeah, end of theory. 

BUT thinking about it, my brain wildly guesses that this might be Keith’s mother, (because this galra has quite the pointy chest there, making them appear quite more female, which I explain in this post) but this is also just very random with little to no proof at all. Which leads me again to the post about galran females.

This season honestly left me with more questions than answers! I’m SO looking forward to season 3, though!

A Winning Pair

Playing cards was a very popular pastime when I was growing up. I had my favourite face cards and favourite decks, some vintage and rare. The colours and design for those two Queens are based on a popular face motif. It was super fun to make :)

Twilight Sparkle has now two powerful allies and protégés. And who is better suited to gather all unique magical talents under her wing, if not Element of Magic herself?

You probably know I wholeheartedly disagree about “Starlight is just copy of Sunset” statement. I see them both as unique, very interesting characters with completely different motivations for turning bad and very different personalities. Most striking difference is how well Sunset handles her friendships now, while Starlight stays socially awkward and deeply introverted.

casual makki, in two different colouring and shading styles, because i dont know whether i like soft shading or harsh shading better and i liked how both of them turned out

i think the thing i love about sirius’s name is the complete comparison and the way it ties in with the ‘we’ve all got light and dark inside of us’ quote?? i mean

sirius = the brightest star in the earth’s night sky. blindingly so. intense. burns so fiercely. enticing.

black = the darkest colour due to the absence or complete absorption of light. deep. all-consuming.

both his first and his last name are extremely intense for different reasons and yet are at two completely different ends of the spectrum?? like the conflicting nature of his personality, two sides of the same coin.

Cool idea: Dragons that pledge allegiance to a Flight different than their birth place can develop partial or even complete Heterochromia iridum consisting of the two Flights they are connected to. In time, dragons can completely loose their original Flight eye colour and adopt their new Flight eye colour which is very controversial and often causes a stir with the parents, elders and those still strongly knit with the original Flight.

My identity

I’ve currently been thinking a lot about my identity- where I stand on the spectrum. Since looking for icons from a south asian background, Iv been introduced to women celebrating their culture, truly immersed in it, and I almost feel like a fake. I understand most their references, Its not completely foreign to me. I love many things about my culture and my religion. Two completely different things defining me in different ways, one feeding my soul and another (specifically in regards to asian cuisine) feeding my stomach!
I love our values, our importance on family, our respect for our elders and the colours of both our skin and our clothing.
However despite this, Iv been born and bred in London, speak only english, use nonsense road slang, dress predominantly in western clothing with the exception of a few occasions and basically only eat western food.  I pray 5 times a day while rocking culottes (which i love because faith and fashion in one amiright!?) and am proud to be British. So I float between these two very different worlds.  

attending high school in a semi middle class area, I had friends from a wide range of backgrounds- I had only one muslim asian friend. This however never seemed like an issue, I had friends from Africa, from Armenian, Iran, India, China, Sri Lanka ect, and i loved the diversity. I loved learning about new cultures and religions and never felt like an outsider, because to some degree, we all were. I never thought or questioned my identity because it never stood out to me, we were all different.

It wasn’t until I went to art school did I notice how secular and white dominated some areas of education could be. I was one of the only brown kids, and definitely the only hijabi, making me painfully aware of my skin and what was on my head. I felt constantly worried about being labelled or people making judgements about my belief. Don’t get me wrong, everybody on that course was lovely, and I was never victimised in any way, a lot of it stemmed from my own insecurities, but noticing that lack of diversity caused me to struggle to have the confidence to fully integrate myself.

Coming from a Catholic school I was so used to people having some sort of understanding or tolerance towards my belief in God, never feeling self conscious about it. To then, forcing myself to ignore peoples confused stares as I walk into a tiny closet to pray (since my foundation had no designated prayer room). Feeling nervous when people started talking about the latest ISIS attack, feeling the need to be apologetic over something I had no association with. Trying to think of any excuse of why I couldn’t join everyone for a drink at the bar, because I couldn’t deal with one more person questioning me “how can i not drink” as if alcohol was mandatory in having the complete university experience .

I definitely struggled with being honest with myself about my identity, and instead just hid it away, not ashamed of it, just not wanting to display it openly. If theres a difference.

I found myself over compensating for my differences, swearing a little to much, wearing a turban instead of a hijab to look less ‘ethnic’ , or talking about how I do shisha to make up for the fact I didn’t smoke cigarettes, avoiding making any art that seemed too cultural with fear of seeming like my culture and religion was all I had to show. I could go on.

I convinced myself I was ridding people of their misconceptions of me, when  In reality, I was probably trying to convince myself I was something other than what I was. I needed to realise if people were going to be ignorant, me tying my hijab differently wasn’t really going to change that.  

When constantly being bombarded with loud negative voices in our media, whether it the Trump regime, or daily mail commenters, it’s easy to get stuck in your own head and feel like everybody hates you. It was only until moving to a more diverse environment that I became less cynical towards humanity, remembering that there were many accepting people out there.  I’m now able to generate these types of discussions without fear. It allows multi faceted conversation and an opportunity for us all to learn something new from each other. It all sounds very candy floss and rainbows, but I realise that theres still a lot of work to be done. There’s a lot of hate in the world at the moment, but starting small like improving diversity within our education sectors can definitely go a long way. Allowing more opportunities for people from less privileged  class, racial and religious backgrounds the chance to engage in our rich subject (excuse my pun). Art is not meant to be an elite club for only white, wine drinkers (another pun, I’m on a roll). It’s not fun feeling like you don’t belong, or like your just that token girl filling in some sort of requirement.

I’m not a great writer, and I’m not sure if any of this really made any sense, it’s just open thinking really. Basically my point is,

integration will lead to more interesting art,

I promise.

The Guests: An Illustrated Guide

Everyone is welcome to their own interpretations and headcanons regarding the guests, but since I started this blog I’ve been asked to explain the differences a few times. Hopefully this will help clear up any confusion and also explain why I tag some posts the way I do. So without further ado…

The Show: First Guest and Second Guest

There are two guests in the show. They have no canon appearances and no canon names. They have speaking parts in the narration at the beginning of each episode and their respective seasons reveal some information about their lives, but beyond that we know little about them. What we do know, however, is that they are both adults and also at an age where they have a fairly stable and established careers. Because they have no names the fandom typically refers to the male guest in the first season as First Guest and the female guest in the second season as Second Guest.

About Stephen Haniwa Salaryman

I notice that this tends to cause some confusion so I will address it. At the end of the first season it’s strongly implied that the First Guest turned into a monster known as Stephen Haniwa Salaryman. However, he is just one of many of his kind. I see this as commentary on the working class but that’s a different conversation entirely. The important thing is that Stephen Haniwa Salaryman is a catch-all term for all of the monsters of this type, just like how there are multiple Dead Body monsters. Though the First Guest becomes a Stephen Haniwa Salaryman he is not every Stephen Haniwa Salaryman that appears in the show. The Haniwa Salaryman part of the name is actually very interesting if you want to know more about the themes surrounding this monster. The Stephen part comes from the first episode of the third season and may or may not be technically accurate to apply to the rest of the Haniwa Salarymen. Since I can’t confirm how this plays out in the Japanese version it might be best not to worry too much about semantics.

The Game: Guest Boy and Guest Girl

Not a lot of people are familiar with Soul Collector which I think is what causes the bulk of the confusion. In brief, Gregory Horror Show Soul Collector was a PS2 game released in 2003. You play as a lost soul who just arrived at Gregory House. At the start of the game you name yourself and choose your gender which determines your character’s appearance. Notably this is not your real appearance, it’s just a body you borrow from Death, and the idea is probably that you’re basically playing as yourself. The fandom tends to treat the two options as actual characters and not just as player avatars though. Typically the male avatar is referred to as Guest Boy and the female avatar is referred to as Guest Girl. Adding to the confusion though is the fact that the brief narration in the game is voiced by the voice actors for the First Guest and Second Guest. There’s no evidence this is supposed to imply some relation though.

The Reboot: Hiroshi

Hiroshi is a character created for Gregory Horror Show Mystery Holiday. Not much is known about him except for the fact that he’s an elementary school student. Despite being similar in appearance to Guest Boy it is extremely unlikely that he is the same character as Guest Boy since Guest Boy is a player avatar. People will understand if you confuse the two though. I do it all the time.

My weakness is tattooed parent!destiel. Carrying baby Marie into the house for the first time, colourful tattoo sleeves in stark contrast with the white blanket she’s swaddled in. Going to the grocery store and cooing at her like saps, completely ignoring the way people stare at them; at these two heavily inked guys, nuzzling their infant’s nose and blowing raspberries on her cheeks.

Laying still as she traces Papa’s big black wings and the special lily flower on Daddy’s side. They tell her a different story for each piece of ink. And when she asks about the tattoo that both her parents have, the one that says: “may the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks,” they explain that it’s from their favourite book The Hobbit and that it’s for her; that they each had it done before bringing her home. 

Because that is their wish for her.

Ghostbusters (Paul Feig, 2016)

laurenholtzmann:

“i’ve seen ghostbusters three times at the movies now, and i kinda just want to talk about why i loved it so much for a second or two.

it was a complete breath of fresh air to walk into the cinema and see a group of women (of different shapes, sizes, colours, might i add) on that screen supporting each other, having one another’s backs, saving an entire city together. there was absolutely no gratuitous scenes involving sex, nudity, relationships and whatever other bullshit hollywood likes to throw into female roles. no, it was just four ordinary women being passionate about something they loved, and that’s exactly one of the reasons why i love this movie so much. little girls are going to walk into theatres across the globe and see women up there who have dedicated their entire lives to something which EVERYONE else looked down on. they’re going to see four different women: a teacher, who was picked on as a kid for being ‘different’ and is extremely goofy, caring and loveable, a queer nerdy scientist who adores making machinery and fighting ghosts and will never apologise to anyone for it, a woman of colour who works in a subway station and has an insane interest in history and reading and busting ghosts, and a dedicated ghost lover who’s devoted her entire life to finding paranormal creatures when so many people tore her down. and she proved those bitches wrong. people of all ages and genders (but especially those little girls) finally have the chance to see women up there, kicking ass for a full 1 hour and 57 minutes with no catch. no relationships. no sex. just straight up girl power.

also, they’ll get to see a woman openly flirt with another woman. an openly gay actress. a character who is gay (well, i’m assuming, along with the rest of the internet) is just living her life, and her sexuality isn’t explicitly mentioned once, or is the sole purpose of her character. she’s busting those ghosts, while subtly flirting with everyone, wearing whatever clothes she fuckin wants to, because she can. it’s just so refreshing to sit in a theatre and see someone so accurately close to yourself up there in a family movie.

girls being there for other girls is so important to me in terms of seeing it on the big screen. holtzmann was consistently supportive and protective of erin, especially after hearing how she’d been dismissed as a child, abby and erin put their tiny disagreement behind them and reminisced and laughed and cared and didn’t leave each other for a second time, and patty. well. she was just a fucking star. a complete angel. “kids is mean man, i believe you.”

another thing which i loved, even as a gay woman, yes, was chris hemsworth’s character. one of the only male lead characters in the movie was portrayed as a complete and utter goofy dork. it was so incredible to see these woman kick ass SO hard, and then have the contrast of kevin in the background. and despite his many, many flaws, at the end of the day, the women still went back to save their ridiculously dorky receptionist, even if he did suck really hard at his job, because they were a family.

holtzmann’s speech. erin saving her friends with the swiss army knife jillian gave her. abby and erin having a moment in the middle of a fucking vortex. holtzmann singing her little “abby come and get ya sandwich” song. patty’s knowledge of new york city. “i believe the word we’re looking for is apocalypse”. “oh god, i can only think of soup. what else is good in the world? um. salad.”  the cameos from the original ghostbusters cast. cecily strong’s little role, another amazing snl cast member. the whole “cat out of the bag” thing. fucking ozzy osbourne.

go and support this movie. prove those weird men (who sit at home and write creepy imdb reviews all day) wrong. loose yourself for a few hours in the shitty year that is 2016, because this movie is important. it’s everything. it’s the year 2040, and our president is a plant.”

The Shark and the Hound: The Sign of Four is Coming

This might be less of a crack theory than I originally thought. Recently, this shirt has been featuring in setlock news.



The first time I saw the shark and the “hound”, I didn’t really think of Redbeard or metaphors for characters in the show. Instead, I noticed the similarity of the print to yin and yang:

The thing is: There are many different “versions” of this symbol, some even change the sides. However, the meaning remains the same. There are two “forces” that reach for one another to complete each another. In general, the “light” side is associated with masculinity and daytime, whilst the “dark” side is female and represents the night. As such, the point where the night turns into daytime is the sunrise, while the transition from daytime to night is sunset.

Since the colours themselves are often reversed, there is no point arguing about who is good or who is evil, whether Sherlock is the shark or the dog. Instead, I find it much more interesting to consider the implications of the animals that have been chosen. And I actually think yin and yang are important, too.


I sincerely doubt that the dog is Redbeard. In HLV, Redbeard was an Irish Setter, but this dog resembles a bloodhound, especially the shape of the ears is wrong. However, there’s a partial bloodhound that has been confirmed to feature in s4: Toby. In ACD canon, Toby was a great sniffer dog that Holmes sent for in order to help him trace the criminal in “The Sign of Four.” Now, you will recall, there’s already The Sign of Three, and technically, the story has already been adapted. But has it? Really?



I don’t think so. Originally, Mary Morstan is a client who approached Holmes after somebody sent her valuable pearls. Holmes then found out that these were connected to the treasure of AGRA. Morstan’s father had been part in a dubious agreement to secure the treasure. However, their group was busted, and most of them died. The pearls were sent to Morstan by a dying accomplice who wished to do her right on his deathbed. Basically, he attepted to give her the share of the treasure that her father had been promised before his death. After one of the guy’s sons is killed, Holmes calls for Toby to trace the criminal, another person who had been after the treasure. The culprit, Jonathan Small, escapes on a steam launcher called Aurora. The trace therefore ends at the boat landing, that is: At the sea. The story, of course, doesn’t end here, but this is the most revelant part to my theory that the TRUE Sign of Four is yet to be adapted.



To me, it always seemed quite ridiculous to compare TSOT to the original case. Apart from a couple of names, the stories have nothing in common whatsoever. Sure, the story features Jonathan Small, Mary Morstan, and Major Sholto, but that’s where the parallels end. In fact, the story is so far removed from The Sign of Four that the signs no longer even are connected to the case, only to Mary’s pregnancy. That’s quite a free adaptation. Originally, the four were people connected to the treasure of AGRA.


And that’s where yin and yang come back into play. Aurora is latin for sunrise: The point where “night” turns into “day”, when the shark and the dog meet. Maybe the Sign of Four, the people connected to AGRA, or rather, the four people who ARE A.G.R.A, will be completed in s4.


Of course, originally, the four people were Small and some Indians, however, we must allow for a BBC Sherlock reading. Small has already been established to be unconnected to Mary, as did Sholto, because he was connected to John instead. Also, Mary’s father has been completely removed from the story. Thus, I would conclude that The Sign of Four will feature her in her father’s place.

I don’t think many of us would be surprised if she had struck a “dubious agreement” in her shady past. So, she would be part of A.G.R.A.

And a major player might enter the scene, seeing as that A.G.R.A. is to be completed in s4.


These are my speculations about s4 rather than facts. If The Sign of Four is to be adapted, I’d expect these changes to the story to fit into Mofftiss’ setting.



Now, allow me to offer some “hard facts” that support my theory that The Sign of Four will be adapted.


Let us compare what we know about setlock with what I just described:

  1. Toby is a gigantic clue. The dog only features in The Sign of Four
  2. In The Sign of Four, Holmes disguises himself as a mariner. It has been speculated that the fisherman next to John (on the beach) is actually Sherlock in disguise.
  3. Mary Morstan receives substantial gifts from an unknown person. In s4, John suddenly drives an expensive car.


Mofftiss have been mixing stories since s1, but I do think that there are some clues that point towards the adaptation of the actual Sign of Four.

To me, that’s more important than speculating about the animals’ meanings. Although I will be offering a reading on that in the future, too. For now, I’ve achieved my goal: I established the connection of setlock to The Sign of Four.

Binary Opposites

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation


This shows the binary opposites in Harry Potter between Voldemort and Harry Potter. These are two complete opposites in one being good and the other being evil. In this short gif Harry is closest and Voldemort is furthest away. Voldemort is dressed in a full black cape. Wearing a long cape signifies mystery and represents a villain. Also by the way Voldemort looks the audience recognises he is different from the stereotypical person and immediately portray him as being the villain. Harry Potter is younger than Voldemort so the audience sympathise with him as it could signify an ‘older bully’. Voldemort wand has green colour sparks. Green has connotations of jealously and also has a meaning of possession meaning the want to own other people/things. Harry Potters wand has red/orange colour sparks. This symbolises fire and blood so is associated with war, energy and strength as well as passion and desire. Red is a very emotionally intense colour. These are very likeable traits and the audience automatically see Harry as the hero. 

Completely late, but he’s my three year hexipuff anniversary!

I started this blanket on April 1, 2013, and been working on and off it since then. I have knitted a total of about 1405 hexipuffs in 49 different colours, to which 768 hexipuffs and 6 half hexipuffs are represented here. This is how much of the blanket I have sewn together. I have the first eighteen and the last four columns sewn together, and the two sewn together in long columns, just not connected. I just started adding half hexipuffs to the blanket to see if I like the edging more, which I do.

The size of my blanket at this stage is about 88.5 inches long and 57 inches wide or 225 cm long and 145 cm wide, and it has a weight of approximately 14.2 pounds or 6.5 kilograms.

Pia Wallén’s thoughts on designing the FÄRGLAV quilt cover.

“FÄRGLAV quilt cover has fabrics in two different colours that overlap on each side, so you can vary the look of your bedding. That also means there is no back or front, up or down. Where the two colours meet you can find the hidden zipper that keeps the quilt completely enclosed within the quilt cover. Thanks to the blend of lyocell and cotton, which transports moisture quickly, FÄRGLAV is really nice to sleep in.”
