this is really all i want from this show

anonymous asked:

I really love your blog, and I think all the meta you write is fantastic, especially anything you write about Ouma. I feel like I'm learning more about the game every time I come on here, and I wanted to show my support and thank you! I also wanted to ask about Ouma's room; specifically, I wanted to ask about why you think he has a statue of Rantaro hanging upside down, and why it was specifically Rantaro. Once again, thank you so much, and I hope you have a good day!

Thank you so much, anon! I appreciate all the support, and I’m so glad that I’ve been able to help people understand the game or Ouma better! I have so much fun writing here, and getting really nice asks like this keeps me motivated and looking forward to it every day!

This is actually a very fun question, more than you would initially think! Ouma and Amami are actually very, very similar in terms of motivations, and also their thought processes. Both are incredibly intelligent, both wanted to stop the killing game itself, and both were ultimately incapable of trusting anyone but themselves because of the doubt and suspicion thrust upon them in a situation as horrible as a killing game.

Talking about this in-depth will require covering quite a lot from all the chapters of the game, including Chapter 6, so if you aren’t comfortable with being spoiled for end-game material, please don’t read any farther! I want to clear up the questions in detail, so it’ll be very long probably!

Paternity Test~part3~Ashton Irwin

Adjusting to life with a baby was hard. It would be hard on anyone. Adjusting to life with a baby alone was even harder. You weren’t sure if you should get in contact with Ashton even just to ask what was going on or where he was, but you didn’t. You didn’t really want the heartbreak. 

Clearly he didn’t tell his friends that he left because they showed up with tons of presents for the baby. 

“Y/n!” Calum shouted hugging you. “Where’s the baby?” He asked as you let them all in.

Okay so I'm convinced Cas is in love with dean. No doubt but I struggle with being completely sure that dean is just as in love with Cas. I want it to be true ofcourse and really I believe it to be true. But like where's dean love confession ya know? Where's dean sacrifice to Cas ? I love destiel, but I kinda want reassurance that's 100% mutual despite it being really really repressed. Dean is such an open book but also the most complex character on the show to me. Thoughts?

As I’ve theorized, if they’re gonna do this it’s gonna be one of them at a time (and yes, I know it’s a long shot but I’d rather hope than live in despair). 

I cut my shipping teeth with Buffy and Spike and that one spent a whole season plus as unrequited and then went to all sorts of bad places. But it started just from Spike’s perspective and what that did for the audience was make us root for him.

If they really really want to go there, starting this from Cas’s side first, making him the one in love not only slowly introduced the idea to the audience, it makes them invested in the outcome Cas wants….and it also creates tension and drama.

If it’s all mutual all at once, that’s boring TV. These writers love to make us and the characters suffer, so they wouldn’t do that. Having it be one sided at first is exactly the kind of torture they love though…but eventually it should come through.

Hi everyone! I’m Mika, you all know me. I just wanted to say a couple things to everyone.
First of all, i wanted to say this since yesterday so I’ll do it now. We all read your comments on mangafox and we feel happy that people support us. I actually felt really touched when Caramel and Serya showed me the comments (they had to show me because i don’t have an account there). So, i wanted to say thank you to all the people who support us in this. Really, thank you, it means a lot to us.

The other thing is: readers keep sending us ask trying to help us or just giving us thanks for working in this manga for so long (thank you for that too).
We also got some asks saying that we should look for ways to stop these people from entering the forum. Some people say that we should do it so we can continue with the scanlation, others don’t.

The thing is, and Caramel already said it, our forum has almost 4000 accounts and a lot of people log in and out every day. Even if we are 4 people in this team it’s impossible for us to look at who logs in and what they’re doing and even if we do, there is no way to know if someone is reading the chapters or actually doing something to repost them.

We already tried everything to stop people from reposting, we thought that we could do that by using the flipbooks but apparently it couldn’t stop them. That was our last resource.

We knew that some people had problems reading from the flipbooks and only recently (and thanks to Mitha) we found another way of posting the chapters (chapters 28 to 30, remember?). We were planning to take out the flipbooks and post all the chapters again using those new codes but this happened.

The point is, even if we are the administrators of the forum and have access to a lot of things that normal users don’t, we don’t have super powers. There is no way we can know who is honest and who isn’t. We didn’t find any new way of stopping them from reposting because we already tried everything.

I’m posting this here now because Caramel is (and i quote) “really happy playing Elsword right now” (i would like to be too but I’m working now, so rip me) and remember, all our personal accounts are public so everyone can go and read everything we say and we don’t mind that at all. Actually, my twitter account is private because i had a personal issue but it was public not so long ago as well.

Thanks for all the support, everyone. It means a lot to us. Sadly we don’t have any other solution than stopping the project at this point. And even if we had, we won’t keep doing it. Those guys on mangafox ruined everything we did and the damage is already done.

I have nothing left to say so, have a good day!

- Mika

catcomixzstudios  asked:

Do you remember how you first came up with the idea for Hazards of Love? Is there anything you can share about how it has changed since its inception?

Sure!  Er, it was the culmination of a lot of things, starting with this post. Originally, Issue 0 was all that was going to be created, but I was really in love with the idea of following Amparo as they tried to survive in Bright World.

Obviously, their gender changed from female to not. I did very much want to have a non-binary character who wasn’t a robot or an alien or a mystical being, but very much a human who was AFAB. And to still have them be nonbinary, y’know?

The other thing that inspired it was this post about Mad Max and my own feelings about how there’s always the Token Latina on American shows, someone who invariably looks a certain way and doesn’t allow for, say, the Gina Torreses of the world. I felt so happy when Brooklyn 99 had two Latina characters, because that let the both be so different from each other.

The entire human cast of Hazards is Latinx, and that lets me have nerdy Iolanthe, and street kid Amparo who is trying to be harder than they are, and more who you haven’t met yet. (I suppose the inhuman cast is Latinx as well. At the least, Mimí sounds a lot like one of my aunts when she’s using her Dramatic voice, and El Ciervo has the deep rumbly voice of Joaquin Cordero circa El Libro de Piedra.)

Speaking of, a lot of Bright World takes influence from El Libro de Piedra and other Mexican gothic horror stories from the 60s - 80s. They had a really great, creepy as heck vibe where ambiance becomes a big part of it; hopefully that comes across in the writing.

Thank you for the ask!

camboyjace replied to your post “Not trying to start wars here or anything because I looove Jalec but I…”

YES YES YES. They’re neglecting everything else in the show for the sake of giving Malec fans what they want and essentially reducing these two characters to their relationship. It really shows lazy writing. If they cared about good story-telling they would’ve explored all the potential Alec and Magnus have separately but I guess that doesn’t bring as much $$$

*sigh* i honestly don’t understand. even the so called main relationship of the whole show is on pause in order to develop both parts of it, all other relationships from the books which (i’m guessing) will have at least a moment of being canon are on hold because they’re focusing on the characters individually, and yet.

i’m not saying this because malec isn’t my cup of tea, i’m saying this because i would like to at the very least see them gravitating towards each other and a proper relationship more organically, you know? and not feel like they’re being thrown in together bc Magnus has a crush and wants to get rid of the hold Camille has on him and Alec feels like there’s no one else for him/paying romantic attention to him anyway so might as well settle. you know? it shouldn’t feel like that. it does to me. i’m sorry, what can i say.

Ok, so you wanna know who truly has helped shape my views on so many things, including LGBT+ issues and the struggles of black people? It’s Leo. You all may know him as Leo the Giant from Vine. I’ve known him way before Vine, and this man… this wonderful man… helped bring attention to so many of the struggles and injustices that still exist in this day and age. I may not have been so wary of world issues so early on in my life if it wasn’t for him. He really helped to open my eyes, and for that, I will always be grateful. I just wanted to make sure you all knew to give credit where credit was due. It’s Leo who first showed me how much we have yet to accomplish. I am blessed to have Leo in my life. I love Leo. ❤️

For a lot of you I imagine it’s going to be either going back to see your family, Christmas is really nice, it’s your favourite time of the year, time off work, time off school, presents and it’s all good. But for lots of people out there, you know, they might have family problems or personal health issues. Christmas isn’t the perfect thing that everybody wants it to be, so I hope for all the people out there that maybe aren't having the perfect break from doing whatever they want that Gamingmas is a nice little happy thing in their life. ‘Cause I presume that no matter your circumstances if you’re here watching the live show, you probably watch YouTube, so I hope that all of you, no matter how your Christmas period have been going, you’ve just enjoyed watching the fun silly videos on DanAndPhilGAMES.

Quotes from Dan (19/?)

The true motivation behind deciding to do 24 videos of Gamingmas, I’m sure. Christmas time is complex. I hope everyone who struggles with this time gets through it okay.

“I’m what they call ‘ethnically ambiguous,’ so I get a lot of work as a background actor. I’m playing a ‘parkgoer’ today. It’s my 25th job since October. In Madam Secretary alone, I’ve played an Israeli military officer, a Colombian college student, and an advisor to the Iranian president. And that was all in the same season. They’ll keep using you as long as you don’t have any speaking lines. Maybe one day I’ll have a recurring role, but right now I’m really grateful to be doing this. My parents are immigrants from El Salvador. They are the hardest working people I know. They were really skeptical about me wanting to be an actor, so I love that they get to see me working. My first gig was a Hallmark Christmas movie with Melissa Joan Hart and Dean Cain. My parents couldn’t believe that I was on the same show as Sabrina The Teenage Witch and Superman.”

I wanted to make appreciation drawings for a very interesting, relevant, and important character that is sadly, so widely overlooked by the fandom. The guy who literally has all the answers to our questions about the Butterfly Monarchy and Mewni history. the guy who plays such a pivotal role in the show by teaching Star to understand her magic. the guy who is currently stolen away by Ludo right now. We cant forget him.

This goes out to all the fandoms out there, to everyone who is either part of the lgbtq community or a supporter, and to everyone who has always wanted to see more diversity on tv …

… the EYEWITNESS fandom really needs your help! I constantly see posts on Tumblr from people who want to see more diversity in media - books, tv shows, movies - and yet here we have a show that has a ton of diversity … but it’s about to be cancelled because of low ratings!

EYEWITNESS is a really great new suspense drama about two boys, Philip and Lukas, who witness a triple murder but have to keep it a secret because one of them is scared that people will find out he is gay. One of them happens to be the foster son of the local Sheriff (who, btw, is a woman!) who is investigating the murder. From there on the show has multiple plot strands that all tangle together at some point, but the romance between Philip and Lukas is at the heart of it all.

Speaking of which … these are the boys:


Reasons why you will love EYEWITNESS:

  • Complex and complicated love story between two boys (one comfortable with his sexuality, the other deeply closeted) that feels honest and real
  • Doesn’t shy away from showing physical intimacy between the boys (seriously, they are making out shirtless 7 minutes into the first episode!)
  • Tough kick-ass female characters
  • Lots of POC & LGBT representation
  • Defies gender stereotypes
  • Positive portrayal of foster kid with foster parents
  • Deals with important issues like PTSD, drugs and the challenges of coming out in a realistic way
  • Suspense and lots of plot twists you won’t see coming
  • A killer who is creepy as hell
  • An amazing cast!!!

Oh, and did I mention it’s actually well-written?

Unfortunately diverse shows never have it easy, especially if they focus heavily on LGBTQ characters / couples. Add to that the fact that USA Network has basically done nothing at all to promote this show, and you can imagine that ratings are really low. So low in fact that the show will get cancelled if ratings don’t go up drastically!

EYEWITNESS deserves better! And we as a fandom are trying to make that happen. We are trying to get more people to watch to increase ratings.  

So PLEASE … if you live in the US then please watch EYEWITNESS tonight (and the next few Sundays after that) at 10 PM on USA Network. If you can’t watch it live then please DVR it and watch it the next day. Or you can do both which according to the show’s producers will count for two viewings!!!

If you want to catch up on the first 5 episodes you can do so on the USA Network website or app, or you can get the episodes on VoD (iTunes, Amazon Video, etc).

For people outside the US, if you buy the show on iTunes or Amazon Video (if your country has it) then this will also contribute to ratings!!!

If you like the show, please tweet some love for it to @USA_Network and use the hashtags #Eyewitness and #Philkas!

Let’s show the world that we WANT tv shows with diversity, and that shows which feature said diversity CAN be successful! Let’s show them that people will tune in for these kind of shows so that they will continue making them!

How Yuri On Ice has destroyed “National Stereotypes”

Watching the episode 8, with the apparition of all these new characters I HAD to write this post. 

And Finally tell everyone what I really think: Yuri On ice, in only 12 episodes, is literally DESTROYING the biggest barriers of our time. A sistematic and slow consumption that simultaneously is so NATURAL… So RIGHT that is shocking:

 Yuri on Ice is RECREATING the Anime scene, episode by episode.

Originally posted by sawtsuki

But in this post I want to speak particularly about only one of these surpassed obstacle: The social cultural one

Since the first trailer I have noticed how this show was different: a sportive anime in which the personages are from different country??? My first thought was: “Ok this could be revolutionary or could fail and be another national stereotyped anime” 


 For me this was a very IMPORTANT detail, because since I was a child I was affected by national stereotypes, I don’t like them and they don’t like me. 

(I know that is stupid but really piss me off that In EVERY tv shows, films, tv series, anime There are only two kind of italian:

  1.  the half-aged man with black moustaches who is a pizza maker Or a mafious. 
  2. The stupid guy who is filtratious and too lazy to do anything)

Originally posted by fyspringfield

Substantially if this kind of stereotypes have only comical intent, I laugh and enjoy them.(Look about Hetalia, this anime intentionally exaggerate to make satira)

 But with my horrors with the pass of time I realized that these categorizations are assimilated for real to my person…only because of my country. 

So I found myself in strange and uncomfortable conversations like: 

 “Oh you’re italian, so you don’t wake up before 8 a.m.” 

“C'mon you are so lucky! Italian guys are so pretty, and are very flirtatious!” 

“AH italy, mafia, Berlusconi!” 

“What this is your brother? Is he adopted? , italian don’t have red hair and fairy skin!”

Originally posted by nikiphorov

My brother when has realized he was adopted ( this was very rude lol)


When I had this kind of discussion I was ALWAYS literally Shocked… at the point that I was really conditioned about my nationality and I always omitted where I were from. 

 The same happens with other countries as well! 

I’ve always heard this kind of things: 

 “I went to Canada this summer, the boys are really kind but they’re not hot enough” (wtf maybe the boys who YOU have met) 

“Mmh Russian boys are rigid af! They are so cold and all alcoholic!”

“Americans are black or white” (???????) 

“I wouldn’t marry a Swiss. They are precise and rich but too haughty”

Originally posted by viktvr

I know Phichit-kun… I had the same reaction. 

In my opinion, this way of thinking creates a big GAP between different cultures so … even if in a first moment stereotypes can be funny, they’re a WRONG SIGNAL for general public. 

 But…Yuri On Ice is totally different from others shows. 

 The character’s characterization doesn’t refer to the normal national stereotypes but RESPECT every national identity and culture. 

We can notice how every personage first of all is a HUMAN BEING but at the same time has precise cultural references.

So we have

But even if they have their own personality, they didn’t renounce to their national identity. 

 For example let’s analyse this scene:

Originally posted by aviscranio

Viktor offers some chinese food to celestino who kindly refuses, saying that is not “his kind of food”. 

We all know that Viktor  convince him and in the final scene we have a drunk Nikiforov

Originally posted by fyeahyurionice

and a poisoned Celestino.

Originally posted by missingmagician

lol look at the shrimp near his mouth

Viktor in fact usally drink liquor and he seems to be used to it, without be an Alcoholic!. 

While Celestino is not used to eat different food likes chinese food ‘cause maybe he is too much attached to italians’ (n.b.I don’t know if it is a casuality but this manner for real affect a lot of us, we are truly convinced that italian food is irreplaceable ) 

 BUT this way of act is not EXAGGERATED, THEY ARE OF COURSE CONDITIONED BY THEIR CULTURE BUT THIS EFFECT DOESN’T DEFINE THEIR CHARACTER.

Originally posted by fudayk

I just liked this gif…

In conclusion for the first time I feel comfortable watching a show in which there are a lot of different nationality.

 Thorough Yuri On Ice we can KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND EMBRACE THEM. We can appreciate ourselves for what we are and learn about others naturally without prejudices.
And I really like it.

Here is one of my new favorite characters in all his asexual glory, Jughead from the Archie comics. I am not great at working in a graphic style usually I work more painterly so I will probably go back and work on this some more but my wrist started hurting and I wanted to post it, so here it is. I have been animating so I haven’t been posting because nothing is really finished yet. Also my first fan art in a while so I at least had fun with it. Also included the sketch since I like it better than the colored (but I had to color it to show the ace flag colors on the shirt)

161112 BTS 3rd MUSTER Day 1 - Jimin Ment

Taehyungie had a really difficult time, but he still got through it. So everyone, I hope you can support him even more. 

Ah, Taehyung is making it hard for me to talk. 

Everyone, it’s been a long time right? You all cried~ You miss us right? We really really really miss you guys too. 

We came to see you through this fanmeeting today. I was so nervous about the fanmeeting since ARMYs all looked forward to it. There are also a lot of songs performed here for the first time, so I was nervous. 

And above all, we really wanted to show you guys the performance of“2! 3!” from this album. I listen to “2! 3!” a lot. If you hear “2! 3!”, you’d be moved to tears. It contains everything we wanted to say to you guys, so it’s really touching. 

What I want to say to you today is… 

I’m not crying~ 

Instead of smiling to show that I’m okay, I’m smiling because I feel really happy. I hope everyone would be full of such things too. I hope you’ll all be happy.

Thank you for coming all the way here, I love you.

That’s really the end of Mickey.
All that work. Years. Years of development.
For nothing.
For no payoff
For them to let Mickey say shit like he doesn’t care about his family which we KNOW ISNT TRUE (aside from terry)
For them to let him forever be alone. In a foreign country. With nothing but a wig and some cash.
I hate this show now and I am truly. 100%. Done.

I really want to understand the logic of this show. The leader of Cadmus was arrested. Lillian LUTHOR was arrested, Lex’s mother. Another Luthor from that infamous family is in prison. And all thanks to her daugther, who prevented every single alien from dying even though most people were wary of her and her company. That was literally the premise of the season!

Why is no one in the show talking about that? Why weren’t the news everywhere, especially on Catco. Why does it seems like they just dropped this entire storyline when they took their time building it?

And Kara has always been shown to be such a good friend and such a good person and it really seemed like she cared about Lena. And Supergirl and Lena aren’t on the best of terms so after everything that happened, why didn’t she go to make amends? To see how lena was doing? A scene like their final scene in 2x05?

And this is not about shipping, it’s just about what it seemed to be their in canon relationship. Their supposed friendship

I’m seriously confused about it and maybe I’m too optmistic but I really hope everything has an explanation because it just seems weird.

Into The Unknown - Over the Garden Wall

It’s been a while but here’s a piano piece from yours truly, your cool cat Josh~ Last night after a grueling night at work, I took the band and my coworkers to a trip… Into The Unknown~

Ooh boy, was I overdue for an OTGW piece but here. I played it out of being so tired and wanting something sweet but somber to finish the night off, and why not play them a song that reminds me of a special friend who helps me get through nights like this sometimes, heh. You know who you are, but this ones out to you, thanks for loving this show and I hope to spread it more myself!

That’s all I really gotta say, its fun playing music from this show and I plan to learn more when I have time. The band said it was a cute song and my coworkers are always happy to see me show off, I guess!~ Can’t lose my edge with the piano after all, but I haven’t given up. I played one or two more songs after this but they weren’t significant enough to record lol. For now, let’s enjoy this time in the Unknown, my cool cats. Thanks for listening, I love you all~
