this show is surprisingly not horrible

The Ten Types of Supernatural Episode:  an Illustrated Guide.

1.  The Generic:

This is the kind of episode fandom veterans fondly refer to as “Old School Supernatural.”  Features a 70s rock soundtrack, a classic (yet in hindsight, relatively nonthreatening) ghost or monster, comically bad special effects, and body horror.  Probably from season one. 

Examples:  “Wendigo,” “Bloody Mary,” “Bugs.”    

2.  The Classic:

Not to be confused with the Generic, the Classic is the kind of episode that everybody remembers and everybody loves.  It’s infinitely quotable, carefully toes the line between hilarious and absurd, and is still frequently blogged about even if it came out 7+ years ago.  Almost definitely features Gabriel. 

Examples:  “Tall Tales,” “Mystery Spot,” “Changing Channels.”

3.  The Life Changer:

Once you see this episode, you will never be the same.  Whether it introduces a beloved character, kills them, or raises them from the dead, the Life Changer is the episode that either sends you into a downward spiral of unhealthy obsession, or merely accelerates it.

Examples:  “Lazarus Rising,” “Abandon All Hope,” “Lucifer Rising.”

4.  The Black Comedy:

Though much of Supernatural revolves around a unique cocktail of horror and humor, the Black Comedy is almost impossible to miss.  From famine-induced cannibalism, to a would-be antichrist, to a killer pagan Santa Clause, the humor of these episodes is darker than Batman’s worst nightmares and probably at least twice as depressing, yet manages to be oddly magical all the same.

Examples:  “Yellow Fever,” “My Bloody Valentine,” “A Very Supernatural Christmas.”

5.  The Crack Fic: 

These are the episodes whose only real purpose is to make you wonder if Supernatural is some kind of elaborate fever dream.  Neither advance the plot nor provide much further insight into its characters, but still entertaining in terms of pure absurdity. 

Examples:  “Man’s Best Friend with Benefits,” “It’s a Dog Dean Afternoon,” most of season seven.  

6.  The WELL-WRITTEN Crack Fic:

Despite having the same brand surreal absurdity of the Crack Fic, the WELL-WRITTEN Crack Fic not only serves to further character development, but will also tug at your heartstrings, make you laugh, and very likely make you cry. 

Examples:  “Monster Movie,” “Sam, Interrupted,” “Hunteri Heroici.”

7.  The Meta Fiction: 

Some shows break the fourth wall, but this one comes at it with a sledgehammer.  From directly addressing the fandom and its terminology to the show itself, the Meta Fiction episode is usually surprisingly enjoyable and well-done, if you can get past the sheer mindfuck of it.

Examples:  “Fanfiction,” “The French Mistake,” “Don’t Call me Shurley.” 

8.  The Tearjerker: 

This one specializes in one thing and one thing only, and that is emotionally destroying you.  May disguise itself as other kinds of episodes, like the Crack Fic and the Meta Fiction, before swiftly and efficiently moving in for the kill.

Examples:  “the Rapture,” “After School Special,” “the Man Who Would be King.”   

9.  The Tragedy Porn:

Do you enjoy watching your favorite characters suffer and die horribly for no particular reason?  No?  Well in that case, you picked the wrong show, my friend.  From the heart wrenching pain of Dean being forced to kick a newly-human Cas out of the bunker, to the soul-destroying injustices that were Kevin and Charlie, the Tragedy Porn is an episode that exists for no other reason than to make you want to crawl into a hole and die.

Examples:  “I’m No Angel,” “Dark Dynasty,” “Rock and a Hard Place.”

10.  The Grand Finale: 

The Tearjerker, made ten times worse with the addition of “Carry on my Wayward Son” and a cliffhanger ending.  Specializes in metaphorically ripping your heart out, making you sob like a pre-adolescent girl, and psyching you up for the next season, no matter how emotionally exhausted you may already be.

 Examples:  “No Rest For the Wicked,” “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” “Swan Song.”

-Surprisingly good at cuddling.

-He will also go on long road trips with you. He’ll take you to the most beautiful places.

-He does love you. Even if he struggles to show it sometimes.

Why people should watch The Good Place-

- Stars the absolutely effervescent Kristen Bell, a.k.a. Anna from Frozen/Veronica Mars
- Cast features multiple poc who are fully fleshed out funny characters not stereotypes
- One of the characters, Janet, you can easily head canon as non-binary (Uses she/her pronouns but repeatedly states that she is not a girl when people assume she is)
- The romantic drama is developed naturally and isn’t overplayed
- Is surprisingly secular/non-Christian for a show about the afterlife and does not condemn any particular religious views on the matter
- Is actually damn funny! And not in a way that’s mean-spirited and horrible, just clever and original
- THE PLOT TWIST AT THE END (I’m not going to spoil it but it’s pretty damn good)
Just go watch The Good Place please, so I can have other people to scream about this show with me.

About why INFPs aren’t always pure and sometimes downright dangerous

I usually don’t post anything about MBTI on this blog, but there’s something I really need to get off my chest about INFP.

I’m INFP myself, and what I hate the most is that we’re mostly portrayed as kind, daydreaming beings, too good for this world, too pure. No. We aren’t.

Our dominant Fi means we’re lead by our own ethical agenda and our corresponding emotions - in a lot of cases, this makes us understanding, peaceful, and mindful of others because we believe that’s the right thing to do. We are perceived as Good Beings™ because society values compassion.

But remember, it’s because we believe in this agenda, and made it our very core.

Fairy Tail Chapter 542 Review

Holy crap, a good chapter followed by another good chapter?! Well lets dig in…

Cover Page is FT Zero… Yeah, I got nothing to say about this.

We open up with Team Minerva not being able to hurt Acnologia. My guess is, Minerva can manipulate space, he can still detect it and eat the space.

Acnologia then fires a blast at Fairy Tail causing the other mages to wonder why he’s even bothering to still do this.

Yeah… Want to see this revelation ruined. Instinct is by definition “An innate, typically fixed pattern of behavior in animals in response to certain stimuli”. While at first I would agree with the idea that the soulless Acnologia being set off by high magic samples to destroy them is instinctual, there’s something later that will come into conflict with this.

We cut to the ravines of times, where Acnologia is thoroughly kicking the Dragon slayer’s assess.

God Damnit, don’t do this! Don’t make dragon slaying magic something you are immune to. The point of these 7 fighting Acnologia is because they have the only magic necessary to bypass Acnologia’s whole “dragon of magic” thing. The dragon slayer property is the reason why these 7 need to be the one to destroy him. I’ll get into this later at the end, but this is just setting yourself up for dissatisfaction.

We cut to Hargeon, where they’ve procured a big enough ship.

Fuck off Erza. No. Gray and Mira are right here, you’re not going to be able to knock him out of the skies and unlike Lucy, you don’t have an actual plan in place. What are you just going to “she’s Erza” it and hope for the best.

Anyway we cut to the FT library…

Because of course, of course Lucy found the book! Okay, people might wonder why I sound angry and that’s because again, there was no reason for Lucy to be here. This was her plan so she should’ve been the oversee most of it and be the leader. It would be an epic moment for Lucy, but instead she has to go find the book with Freed and Levy (who do make sense), even though she has no reason to. We’ll see that she didn’t even come to decode it, but Levy does. Again, why did Lucy have to do this when she could’ve for once played active leader to a massive group. This moment just exists to make it seem important for her and try to justify swindling Lucy out of a leadership position. It just irritates me. (Also panty shot)

Back in the space between time, Cobra is injured, but gives this moment. Which would kinda be more powerful if he had been relevant before this fight.

Back in magnolia we see crime sociere use their magic to start luring Acnologia away. And if people are curious why I sound a bit ranty, even thought I said this was a good chapter in the beginning. Well, you see this chapter has something this finally arc has lacked, character bits. In the next pages every character gets a small panel that shows them doing something while showing off an aspect of who they are. It’s not just in these pages, but in earlier ones as well, with Erza being stoic and Cobra having his declaration. This is a great way to connect with the cast given the situation, without “spotlighting” them. The only ones that do come up weak are the Dragon Slayers because of the nature of being the characters facing down the big bad, they should have had much bigger relevance this arc.


Yeah, I don’t think you’ll be able to read it well while your flying at max speed.

Back at Hargeon, everyone is readying themselves to cast fairy sphere. But then this happens…

Okay before I get into the biggest problem, lets talk about the how this is not really instinct, but now more a radar sense, because something running on detecting magic and just feeling the urge to destroy does not also equate to, knowing what weakness is. It’s not aware that there are ships, why include this? Speaking of ships destruction, this is what I was talking about earlier when saying this is setting up for dissatisfaction. By destroying the ships and making the Dragon Slaying magic useless, you are making it so that only a deus ex machina can beat him. I was so behind Lucy’s plan because while it hinged on finding this book, atleast it was using established things about the series to come up with a way to beat him. Now by giving more and more handicaps to the good guys the only way they’ll win is due to the magic of writing and not a legitimate win. There will probably be some bull crap friendship moment that suddenly makes Acnologia vulnerable even though there was no foreshadowing. That’s how you make a bad ending, by not earning it. I’ve never seen a story try to sabotage itself like this.

Post Chapter follow up: Cons first, Everything about Lucy’s strategy is messed up and now is going to have to rely on plot convenience. Speaking of Lucy, I am still mad that she did get swindled out of her badass leader moment.

The stuff with the DS is surprisingly unengaging, which is really something you shouldn’t do with the characters that were hyped up for this final fight. Really they’d should be getting more focus.

Now what makes this chapter great is the characters. All these moments of characterization work, really showing off what they can do, or at least who they are. It’s fitting for a final arc. While there are some that annoy me like Erza’s, I can’t deny that that is Erza encapsulated in a scene. This is really something great and one of the best things about visual story telling.

It’s nice to have the side characters like Sabertiooth and Crime Sorciere be the ones who do the hardest part. Showing that they do have the strength and are valuable to the plan. Also this might seem minor, but the pacing this chapter was surprisingly good.

Overall, this is the same thing as last week’s chapter, this is something that is good, but should be a lot better. The good stuff done in this chapter is without a doubt really good, but it’s weighed down by bad moments that genuinely horrible ones. A lot of the bad stuff however, is more it’s affect on the next chapters, so with that in mind…

Final Verdict: 6/10

  • Great characterization
  • Bad setup
  • For what it is, it’s solid

brackenfur  asked:

loud house. do it ackee

Not a fan.

It’s not. Good. It’s surprisingly mean spirited for a show that’s about good family values and horribly predictable. I dislike most of the characters except Lonnie(?), Lola’s boyfriend and Clyde’s dads and I don’t really think I’ve laughed at a single joke lol.

I’m pretty confident the reason people put it on such a high pedestal is because it’s not trying hard to be outrageously crazy and gross like a lot of nickelodeon cartoons. But it’s really average, the creators previous show (Kick Buttowski) was way more entertaining, fun and hilarious.

Interesting Conversation: Yandere-Kun, Feminism, and Escapism.

**Please keep in mind, while reading this, that this was purely a conversation of opinion and idea. Do not assume that anything we say directly will correlate to Yandere Simulator’s development, despite me being on the project.**

Since I voice Yandere-Chan, a lot of friends have asked me how development is coming for Yandere Simulator and, honestly, it’s wonderful to see it come to fruition slowly but surely. Everyone on the team, especially YandereDev himself, works very hard to make sure the game is a success and takes multiple steps to ensure that what they give everyone is what people would want for the game.

However, some have asked me (either to voice him or to understand why he is a concept) about Yandere-KUN. If you are unaware, Yandere-Kun would be the protagonist of Yandere Simulator as a male instead of a female (Ayano Aishi) and, in terms of adding him to the game, it is very much up in the air with no honest way to discern if it will happen or not. Many want it to happen while others do not want him or don’t care. 

One friend, however, vocalized her concern during a conversation about him. I had let it known that I was excited for the idea of a male protagonist (Yandere-Kun.), but was responded with, “That sounds like a horrible idea!” I, of course, asked why and was given a surprising reply. “Because, if Yandere-Chan was a man and Senpai was a woman, it would advocate female abuse at the hands of an aggressive man!!” With a grimace, I commented that, if Yandere-chan can get away with it, why can’t Yandere-kun? Of course (and not surprisingly so), I was greeted with “Because video games that show that a woman can be more powerful than a man promote pro-women, so it’s okay.” When I asked why she would want to censor a game like that (denying Yandere-Kun from even being considered an idea), she replied “Because video games can influence players into thinking that men stalking and abusing women is okay when it’s not!”

Allow me to make one thing clear: We are BOTH feminists. We both believe in the equality of women to men and that the stigma of women being inferior to men needs to end. However, in this case, I did not agree and allow me to explain why.

1. Yandere Simulator is not a romance game by any means of the word. It is a stealth social sabotage game where you, the player, destroy any chance for Senpai to be with anyone but you. Regardless of what gender you are, in a romantic setting, this would be abusive all around. As a player, you should understand already that this is game is not about romance, but about sabotage. To shun Yandere-Kun for being abusive as a man and not Yandere-Chan because she is a woman is almost counterproductive to the cause we both chase because we shouldn’t demand that women not be punished for things men do. We (SHOULD) demand equality, not privilege.

2. Senpai could be a man with a Yandere-kun. The situation is still the same; a person stalking and sabotaging a person’s social life and claiming them. There is an unfortunate amount of abuse in LGBT+ relationships, so you cannot focus that “Men abusing women” is a singular issue. If we are to fight on the idea that abuse is wrong, take it on all angles and all sexuality that it revolves around (which is all of them).

3. Video Games, as any fictional story is in the world, are meant to be a form of escapism. We, as human beings, are capable of separating truth from lie, fact and fiction. The simple popularity of Yandere Simulator proves this: We know that Yandere-Chan is a terrible human being. We know that murdering people is wrong. Despite this all, the vocal majority loves the game. In the realm of fiction, the lines of imagination and the extreme are elongated infinitely to where anything can happen. We should not demand to censor things, like a male yandere or gruesome school murder, in a fictional setting for the sake of comfort-ability because, as players and consumers, we have and have ALWAYS had the ability to choose not to partake in stuff we do not like. If you are uncomfortable with something, that’s your preference and people should respect you for it, but you cannot demand limitation for everyone else simply because you do not want it. You have to respect, in return, that others do not mind content you do not like.

The conversation quickly ended between us with her believing she was right and me wondering if my own thoughts were correct. After a moment, I confirmed it mentally.

T’was and interesting conversation indeed.

okay, amy and rosa’s friendship is super important to me and i just need to know more, so i have a shit tone of head canons of them that i need to happen (also im lowkey avoiding doing my college work by doing this) 

  • okay, so when rosa first meets amy, she is not 100% sure how to feel about her, because she is just so different, with her freshly pressed pant suits and her ponytails and so many binders. but one day they are put on a case together and rosa witnesses amy take down a perp that is twice the size of her and rosa is just in such awe at how badass she actually is.
  • the reason why rosa knows about the double tuck is because she listened to amy all night rambling on about this guy she had been dating and she did the thing and rosa just smiled to herself because she knew. (she also saw amy do it when she was with jake a few year later, before they were dating, but she kept that to herself).
  • one time amy made the mistake of going out with gina after work and she may have had a little too much to drink, which lead to rosa having to drive her home at two in the morning and listen to amy’s drunk rambles for twenty minutes (she slept on the couch to make sure that amy was going to be okay and made her breakfast in the morning).
  • amy likes the fact that she made rosa laugh so hard that water came out of her nose.
  • whenever they want to talk about people who happen to be in ear shot, they talk to each other in spanish which drives everyone crazy. 
  • the first time amy cried in front of rosa was when she found out that her abula had died. rosa followed her into the bathroom and sat on the floor with her for an hour, holding her hand as she sobbed her heart out. 
  • when jake and amy started dating, everyone expected rosa to give amy the classic “if you hurt him, i will hurt you” speech because jake and rosa have been friends longer and because rosa is scary but rosa gave the speech to jake and proceeded to tell him all the horrible ways she would plan to hurt him. 
  • after rosa found out about what happened on the prisoner transfer (aka the disaster weekend) she showed up to amy’s apartment with wine and all the disney movies that she had, which was surprisingly a lot, and they spent all night doing anything to avoid talking about that night 
  • they did talk about it a few weeks later and amy finally cried over her break up
  • even though she never told jake about breaking up with marcus, she did, however, told amy over leftover chinese food in the bullpen one night when they were both doing overtime 
  • sometimes, when rosa and amy sit together in the briefing room, and amy is being amy, rosa would just look at her and thing how much she loves this nerd and how grateful she is to have her in her life 
  • amy once told rosa that she was her best friend and rosa honestly felt overwhelmed and emotional and fuzzy (granted they have both had drunk a bottle of wine each) 
  • and of course rosa is amy’s maid of honor at her wedding after an hour long argument with kylie  
  • she would deny it if anyone asked but rosa cried when amy told her she was pregnant. twice. 
  • and not forgetting that rosa is the godmother of both of amy and jake’s kids 

It’s really astounding to me that Katy can claim Taylor ‘started it’ when Taylor perfectly explained why she wrote bad blood.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” she says. “She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’” Then last year, the other star crossed a line. “She did something so horrible,” Swift says. “I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”

(Pressed, Swift admits there might have been a personal element to the conflict. “But I don’t think there would be any personal problem if she weren’t competitive,” she says.)“

Notice how Taylor never mentioned Katy’s name and never has. But Katy has made it her life goal to insert herself in all Taylor news. Katy keeps talking about Karma but from what I see is Taylor has had 3 hit songs, in three separate genres in 2016. While Katy struggles to enter the top 20 on iTunes with her latest 3 singles. Which all have had features. Karma is here but it sure isn’t coming for Taylor.

Stargate SG-1 Season 1 thoughts:

I finished the first season in just under a week, yikes. I’ll try and go more slowly but we know that’s not going to happen so let’s stop lying to each other

The 1994 Stargate movie has one of my all time favourites since it came out on VHS (so 1995?). Seriously, it’s up there on the list of of Movies I’ve Watched Over and Over Again alongside Jurassic Park, Star Trek IV The Voyage Home, Back to the Future, and Independence Day!  Why I never made the conscious decision to watch SG-1 when it was on TV is beyond me. I was watching X-files and Buffy and Star Trek around that time so this would have been so to my tastes back then. Wtf, younger me??

  • A surprisingly good first season! A good many shows (especially in the 80s/90s/00s) had pretty crappy first seasons, but SG1 was great. I was hooked by just the first 5 minutes of the first episode! Fantastic team dynamic

  • Richard Dean Anderson is 1000000% a better Jack O’Neill than Kurt Russell. Though for the first few episodes whenever he was on screen I kept having horrible flashbacks to his awful MacGyver mullet from that dark dark past

  • And finally, Sam Carter. So far she’s my favourite. So many other sci-fi shows from this era would have made her ‘The Token Girl’ and sexualized her every chance they got. Nope, not here. She wears army gear that is the same as the men’s, and she’s smarter than than these guys too. All around great character!

All characters second jobs. Tango, waltz and latino. Which characters will be good in selected dance and which dance will be their weakness?

(By the listed dances, i’m going to assume you mean just these three dance types.  If i’m wrong, then you have my apology)


-Lord Knight is not the dancing type, as he is mostly found training or is on the frontline in battle.  However, in the past, Elesis has taught him how to Tango.  Due to this, he’s much better at the Tango than he is at any other dance really.  Though he’s still not the best at the Tango.

-Rune Slayer is quite good at doing Latino dances, due to him being a more laid back type of person, he’s got more free time than LK or IS.  RS, however, does not have a single clue on  how to Waltz properly.

-Infinity Sword has his own style of dancing, it’s called the Dual Sword Waltz.  He describes it as a very fast paced dance with twirls, uppercuts, quick and preceise movement, with multi-hit strikes.  Says it usually results in enemy death fairly quickly.  Hates the Tango, too much foot work.

-Elemental Master has ZERO time to learn how to dance.  She’s too busy studying and practicing magic.  Not to say she hates dancing, just doesn’t really have time to do any.  She does claim that she can do a semi-decent Waltz.  Appears to catastrophically fail at any other dance imaginable.

-Void Princess is a surprisingly good Tango dancer, though her foot work can use some…well, work.  Otherwise, she’s really good at it.  Recent reports show that she is horrendous at Latino dances, says she can’t move her hips THAT well.

-Dimension Witch is an perfect Waltz dancer…well, not perfect by any means, but she claims it’s perfect.  She’s not horrible, just needs work.  What DW is horrible at, is the Tango.

-Wind Sneaker, due to being very good on her feet, can do a Waltz perfectly.  She says the dance just seems…natural to her.  Ask her to do the Tango though, and it’s a whole different story.

-Grand Archer is, even by elven standards, perfect for Latino dances.  She likes performing them with Asura, and has on multiple occasions.  She often comments that they’re very romantic and intimate dances, hence she she likes doing them.  GA does NOT do the Waltz very well…at all.

-Night Watcher can, and will very often, show off that she can do the Tango, though she does often say that her style of sword fighting is more enjoyable.  This is false, as she clearly has tons of fun doing the Tango.  She does not, however, have much fun failing at the Waltz.

-Blade Master does enjoy the occasional dance, he’s not particurally fluent in any of them, but he tries his best.  Will often comment that fencing with a rapier is much easier than the Waltz.

-Reckless Fist is much too agressive when dancing, usually knocking things over or knocking his partner over.  He’s vowed to never dance since then.

­-Veteran Commander can do a pretty good Waltz, usually impressing Rena with how little the Nasod Arm affects Raven when he dances.  He’s not the best at Latino dances, says he’s not the romantic type.  Rena immedietly disagrees.

-Code Battle Seraph doesn’t know what dancing is.  Just that it’s a waste of her time.

-Code Nemesis is semi-decent at Latino dances.  Otherwise she’s terrible at anything else.

-Code Empress is completely unaware of these other dances.  All she knows, is that she can ballroom dance like it’s nobodies business.  Seriously, Code Empress ballroom dancing is a wonderful sight to behold.  She’s tried the Tango, and 100% failed at it.

-NOPE!  You will NEVER see him dancing, ever!  

-Sakra Devanam surprises everyone with how well she can Tango!  She says that it was one of the last things her brother taught her to do, so it’s a very emotional thing for her to do.  She can’t do the Waltz though, as she always ends up falling over.

-Yama Raja is REALLY good at the Waltz, though she doesn’t dare try it in her high-heels, to which the ElGang then questions why she can perform so well in combat with them on, but not do the Waltz with them on.  Who knows, all she knows is that she’s terrible at the Tango.

-Asura is fairly proficient at Latino dances, having done them many times with Grand Archer.  Being clumsy is a bit of a curse though, and that comes with a price…being unable to do the Waltz.

-Grand Master isn’t the most amazing dancer, but she’s pretty good at the Tango, claiming she used to be much better, and that the many battles has left her rusty.  She’s never liked the Waltz, despite having a passive with Waltz in the name.

-Blazing Heart is very passionate in Latino dances, and practices them in her spare time.  When it comes to the Tango, she’s horrible…usually not mentioning why.

-Crimson Avenger does not dance.  She doesn’t care about dancing and probably never will.

-Lunatic Psyker, rather reluctantly, knows how to dance the Tango, not very well but he knows the basics atleast.  He much prefers lab works to dancing, which he describes as: “A waste of effort, with little payoff.”

-Mastermind mostly ignores dancing as a whole.  He’s generally too busy to care, and is too caught up in math/robotics.

-Diabolic Esper does not dance, and never will.  He does, however, watch different dances with an…almost intense curiosity whenever he comes across them on his journey through time and space.

-NB/RG Like the Tango, they both find it interesting, despite that they never have tried it.  They both dislike the Watlz, too rapidfire for them…well, for Lu atleast.

-DL/CH can both do a fairly good Waltz, though it’s tricky with how short Lu is.  Both seem to agree than they’re equally terrible at the Tango.

-DA/DM are too busy being edge-lords to care about dancing.

-Storm Trooper is…honestly not a very good dancer.  She’s tried it before, many many times, but can just never seem to get a grip on how to dance.

-Freyja is able to do the Waltz pretty well, though all the movment tends to make her long hair get in the way.  She utterly fails when trying to do Latino dances, though she kind of likes ‘em, mostly saying it makes her feel sexy, even though she fails.

-Optimus has a bit of a problem with practicing Latino dances, she’s made a (personal) dancing robot to help her practice them.  She cannot do the Waltz to save her life, and has broken her ankle a couple times.

-Crimson Rose cannot do any of the three dances, however, she can do a killer Salsa Dance.  Seeing Crimson Rose do a Salsa Dance with a partner is like watching perfection go to work.  She’s quite horrible at the Tango though.

-Arme Thaumaturgy does NOT partake in dancing, commenting that it is not part of his mission to lean how to “dance”.

-Erbluhen Emotion Happily knows how to do a Waltz, and is quite graceful at it.  He’s also quite decent at the Tango.  Still learning Latino dances though, they aren’t his favorite, but he tries.

-Apostasia only knows one dance…the dance he likes to call ‘End Humanity’.

So this is a bit long which is why I decided to go to the submit page instead of the ask. Uhh tw for abuse and c/g/l mention.

So yeah I admit, I myself am fictionkin but more in a coping with mental illness sense than anything else. Yeah yeah laugh all you want or tell me how unhealthy it is; I really do not care because that’s not the point of this submission.

The point is to tell you how fucking toxic and abusive some fictionkin can be just because of kintypes.

To be specific, I’m kin with Megatron from MTMTE/LL. I identify a lot with him but not as him (clearly I am a human and I try to separate kins with who I actually am as a person like I do indeed have my own sense of identity).

Anyways, so I met a person who was also kin with a Transformer yknow whatever we got along well I guess. We’ll call them B. But here’s the thing, in the actual official canon, B is known for being quite obsessed with Megatron and shit like that.

I uh thought that this person was quite different at first. Turns out I was wrong. Within three days of meeting each other online, B ~magically~ got an intense “crush” on me and asked me out. I’m mentally ill as fuck so they literally used that against me to get with them and I never realized until after we broke up.

Almost immediately, they obsessed over me and got jealous of whoever I was talking to. I did question them when things felt Off but they made me feel dependent on them and constantly used my autism and delusions against me to make me doubt my own perceptions and worries of the toxicity and abuse.

It got to the point where they eventually used their “age regression” against me and would guilt trip me with it by saying shit like, “I’m so smol I’m such a baby I’m so delicate please care for me,” gross shit like that. They pretty much used their “age regression” to force me to engage in c/g/l with them (which is a HUGE trigger by itself for me because lmao I’m a c/s/a survivor). They literally made me so traumatized from that now that age regression or even like seeing kids toys and shit triggers me into a flashback panic attack thing now.

B also ended up cheating on me behind my back for 5 months with two different people, claiming that they’re ~poly~ as an excuse which… no you’re not poly. That was literally cheating because we didn’t discuss anything like an open relationship and it was behind my back for 5 fucking months.

As with most toxic kin people, they eventually started saying stuff like, “But you’re MY Megatron, I have so many Memories of u I love u I love u you’re MINE,” which… I never once discussed “canon memories” with them (in fact, I don’t believe in such things. Again my kintype is just for coping, it ain’t a “past life” thing or any such shit like that).

I eventually called B out on all the bullshit they pulled and how they just worsened my already terrible mental state and they got so mad at me that they ~magically~ somehow got DID/a system within a day and was like, “I already found my Megatron. Fuck off. He’s in my ~System~ now.” After I had enough of B’s shit, I decided to just break up with them to which they surprisingly responded in a desperate, “DONT LEAVE I NEED YOU” way which… after all that, I just told them off and blocked them everywhere.

Since then, B has literally stolen a few friends of mine who, even after showing them screenshots and proof of how gross they are warning them about B, still say that my abuse was fake.

All of that just because of my kintype… this is why I stay out of the community 90% of the time.

jesus. i’m sorry you went through all that. using kins and all that as excuses for being a horrible person is just…. beyond fucked up, and it really really sucks when you have to find out in ways like this.

you sound like a good person, i hope your future is a happier one and helps keep your past from haunting you too much.



Idea/prompt/Request thing was given to me by @aobasjohsais <3

Matsukawa runs a distressed hand through his messy hair, glaring daggers at the offending booth lying in front of them. Iwaizumi grunts to show that he understands, grinding his teeth together.

“Who’s fucking idea was this?” Iwaizumi asks in an icy voice, watch as a girl drops some money into a jar. She blushes horribly, shyly leaning over to place a kiss to Hanamaki’s lips. When she pulls away, she places a hand to her mouth, giggling- and it’s the most annoying sound Iwaizumi has ever heard.

Surprisingly, Hanamaki was very popular with girls and guys alike. Oikawa was the most popular of course, but most of the guys seem too scared to go to him, so they migrated over to Hanamaki.

To say Matsukawa and Iwaizumi were okay watching their boyfriends get kissed every three fucking minutes was a huge understatement. Why couldn’t everyone just go over to Yahaba? The second year was just leaning back with a smirk on his face, not seeming to care about the lack of attention on him.

“Iwaizumi-senpai,” Kindaichi says, nervously wringing his hands together, “Kunimi and Watari need help over at the bake sale. Kyoutani saw a dog outside and disappeared.” He explains, refusing to make contact with either of his senpais.

With a small sigh, Iwaizumi glances at Hanamaki and Oikawa, cringing as a girl basically throws her arms around Hanamaki, practically pouncing him like some hormonal animal. He then watches a guy shyly shuffles up to Oikawa’s booth, placing money in his jar-

Nope. “Alright.” He coughs, turning his attention to Kindaichi, “Just let me do something real quick, alright?”

Matsukawa leans against the wall, crossing his arms as he raises an eyebrow at Iwaizumi. What was he thinking?

Iwaizumi slides up to Hanamaki’s booth, promptly cutting in front of the next person line. “Iwaizumi, wh-?” Hanamaki starts, but Iwaizumi cuts him off by dropping enough money for way more than one kiss into his jar. He then grabs the collar of Hanamaki’s shirt, pulling him forward to roughly slide their lips together. He pulls away way too soon, quickly walking over to Oikawa’s station and carelessly throwing some money down before he pulls Oikawa towards him, kissing him firmly- tongue and all. After he pulls away, he nods in self satisfaction, turns to Kindaichi, and motions for him to lead the way.

He follows a red faced Kindaichi, leaves a flustered Hanamaki and Oikawa behind, and nods in acknowledgment as Matsukawa gives him a thumbs up.

Why you need to see Bill the Film

-It’s by the guys who did Horrible Histories, known as the Idiot Pie. If you like HH you’ll love this

-it’s like Shakespeare smashed with Monty Python and you will be laughing your guts out

-There a SO MANY references to Shakespeare, some are really sneaky

-Like Horrible Histories it shows how really gross the Elizabethan time was it’s great

-It also gets (kinda a spoiler?) surprisingly dark


-“Hello, I’m a man in a play. Hello, I’m a woman in a play.”

-Shakespeare writing a musical

-Like HH and Yonderland it’s super colorful and heartfelt

-Between the six from the Idiot Pie, they play about 40 characters

-Plan J

Delicate {Kylo Ren}

Not Romantic

imagineherbrightskies asked: Imagine kylo walking along the street with some storm troopers and group of homeless kids run through them giving them flowers and the reader being the eldest out of them and giving flowers to kylo and yeah being all awesome

A/N: This is cute and spoiler free, also unedited as heck. It’s a year old. Geeze, I’m really sorry!! BTW the real reason Rigo wanted to hide flowers on the Stormtroopers was for the ~aesthetic~ but he couldn’t just say that. Set 5-10 years pre-TFA.

You were shaking, or, maybe you weren’t, it felt like you should be shaking. You had been living on the streets of Theed on Naboo for the past few years, and in that time you had managed to surround yourself with an adventurous pack of kids in the same situation as you. Naboo was fairly nice, the shop owners had seen your group grow up, doting upon you and giving you any food they could spare, and the generally summery climate meant that nights never got too cold.

On this particular day, you and your friends had decided to amuse yourselves with a game of truth or dare - “Nobody pick truth, truth is for wimps!” - and it had turned into a series of escalating challenges. It was your turn, and you were rather terrified as your best friend, a gungan boy named Rigo Baurs pondered his options.

“You’ve seen those Stormtropers, right?” There was a terrifying glint of mischief in his eyes. You nodded, nervous. The whole marketplace bad been buzzing with the news that a squad of Stormtroopers, as well as an honest-to-maker Knight of Ren, were visiting. No-one really knew why they were here, but apparently the Knight was connected to the Queen, but no-one knew how or why. “Well, I have a challenge for you; you pick flowers from the Amidala Memorial Garden, and then you have to hide as many as you can on the Stormtroopers.” He said.

“What? No!” You cried, “That’s so strange, why?” You spluttered. Rigo shrugged.

“I guess being the oldest means being the most boring.” He sneered, and the other kids jeered you on, “It’s not even that hard.” He said, airily.

“Fine, if it’s not so hard, you have to do it too.” You told him, poking him in the chest. He huffed.

“Easy.” He grinned, but his expression turned soft as one of the youngest, a little girl named Ji-Ryu, who was about five, tugged on his shirt.

“Can we help give the Stormies flowers?” She asked, and a few kids who were also very small nodded vigorously. Rigo paused, torn between looking amused and endeared.

“That’s not what we’re-”

“Please, Rigo , we’ll be nice and we won’t pick the bad flowers.” The girl interrupted, her eyes going wide as she quivered her bottom lip; the kids in your group could do the best puppy-dog eyes, which was great when asking for food, less good when it interrupted a heated match of truth dare or dare. Rigo looked at you, helplessly and you knelt down beside Ji-Ryu.

“Can you help us on a secret mission?” You asked, and her eyes lit up. “When we ask, you have to run in and give the Stormies flowers, be as cute as you can, that goes for all of you-” you pointed at the little kids behind her, “while Rigo and me give them secret flowers, OK?” The little kids began cheering, running off to gather flowers.

“Good call.” Rigo mused, and you smirked.

“Thanks.” You paused, “What if we’re caught? Stormtroopers aren’t exactly known for their leniency.” Rigo snorted.

“They’re also not known for their great aim, so I think if you run in a zig-zag you’ll be fine.” He said, smiling as one of the kids brought you both a bouquet of flowers. Rigo looked from the flowers to you. “First to five?”

“You’re on.” 

You and Rigo spent the rest of the day directing and coordinating your squads of children, intercepting the Stormtroopers while the two of yhou swooped in to place your flowers. The rules were simple; the flower had to stay in contact with the Stormtrooper for a full minute, if it falls off, you don’t get the point. You can sabotage one another, but not violently, and when one person gets to five points, the other person only gets one turn to match them, and the game continues until someone fails.

It was close to the end of the day and you were pretty disappointed, waiting with Rigo to watch the Stormtrooper for the minute where he was securely lodged in between two plates of armour. He had called out to the Stormtrooper during your last go, making the trooper turn and spot you behind him, where you were trying to wedge a flower into the gap between his helmet and bodysuit. You scarpered, running out of them and dropping the flower, terrified, while Rigo simply laughed.

“I said I’m sorry!” He argued after the minute was up. He had officially gained five points and you were stuck on three, with seemingly no hope of return. “Look, I’ve got a final challenge. If you complete it, we call it even and I drop the dare.” He said, ad you narrowed your eyes suspiciously. “The Knight of Ren.” He said and your eyes flew open.

“No. No way. Too far, too far even for you.” You snapped, taking a step back.

“All right, I’m suggesting this because I’m your friend and it’s hilarious; what if we went in all the kids at once, so you’re not going in alone.”

“I’m not going in at all; he’ll literally kill me, Ri.”

“Fine!” He threw his hands in the air, “You flank them and chuck a flower in his hood, like a stealth grenade.”

“Why are you so interested in this?” You asked.

“Mostly boredom,” he admitted, “but also, we’ll never have this opportunity again, don’t throw it away.” You took a deep breath.

“Make sure all the kids get out before I do.” Your voice was even but you were a mess of sudden nerves inside.

“You talk like you’re about to die-” Rigo chuckled.

Promise me.” You said, jabbing him until he promised. “Give me a flower.” You grumbled, and he did. You waited for him to orginise the children, before he turned to you.

“Alright, they’re going to run in from the front, yelling and throwing flower petals, you’re going to come through the back, going straight through the middle. Toss the flower into the guy’s hood and keep running, OK?” He clapped his hand on your shoulder and you nodded, despite your uncertainty. You slipped through the backk alleies until you were able to see Rigo waiting for your signal. You gave him the thumbs up and the children began to run out through the street, laughing and shouting and distracting the Stormtroopers as you raced through. Your heart was in your throat as the flower in your hand was all but crushed in your grip, but you could see the Knight of Ren in the middle coming up fast and you shoved all thoughts from your mind, throwing the flower at him and continuing on.

You heard Rigo call out for the kids to move out, but a hand grabbed the back of your shirt, and you were yanked backwards. You let out a yelp as you were dragged back by the cold hand of a Stormtrooper, and suddenly you found yourself staring up at The Knight of Ren, a wilted, crushed flower sitting atop his head. It would be funny if it wasn’t terrifying.

“What is your name?” His voice was deep and cold, making you flinch. You were silent. “What is your name?” he repeated.

“[Y/N].” You whispered. He thought for a long moment.

“And what-” he picked the flower off his head with a delicate hand, “is this?”

“A flower.” You whimpered.

“What?” He asked, voice loud.

“A flower, Sir, from the Amidala Memorial Garden.” You yelped, shying away as best you could in the Stormtrooper’s iron grip. “Please, don’t hurt me! It was just a game! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” You pleaded, bracing yourself for anything. There was a long moment of silence and curious, you opened your eyes just a fraction. The Knight of Ren’s mask was terrifying up close; he was squatting down to be at eye level with you, and in one movement, he removed the helmet. 

You were expecting some horrible creature, a monster that would haunt your dreams, instead, there was just a man. He looked older than you, but not by more than ten years.

“I’m not a monster,” he assured you,, before looking at the flower in his hand, “Who is the memorial for?”

“I don’t know- some Queen who died a long time ago.” You mumbled, “There’s a sign there, I think.” You told him. He looked to the Stormtrooper holding you, before waving him away.

“Can you show me the way?” He voice was surprisingly soft, and you nodded, shakily, squirming nervously. He straightened up, gesturing in front of himself for you to lead the way. You didn’t look behind yourself, simply weaving through the well known streets, trusting that the Stormtroopers would keep up. 

The park was beautiful, with a bronze statue of a beautiful woman surrounded by flowers. You turned to see the Knight of Ren gazing up at the statue with awe in his gaze.

“Did you know her?” You asked, it was a stupid question, he was fairly young, but there was an knowing glint in his eye. There was regret in his voice when he answered.
