all jokes aside

All jokes and “the markiplier fandom rn” memes aside, can we just congratulate Mark on his amazing work on this? 

Not only is the recently uploaded video very cleverly filmed and organised, with  witty and entertaining dialogue, but he’s managed to include everyone in the “investigation”, making it personal, creating an entire Tumblr page dedicated to the matter, giving us subtle clues, revealing some stuff but not all of it, creating suspense for what’s coming next… and on top of that, he’s chosen to post this at a perfect time for all those “back home” who couldn’t make it to the tour, which I think a lot of people badly needed. I’m no cinema expert, but this is hella fun and entertaining, and of course there’s a great atmosphere of mystery around the whole thing, so well done!

So Mark, thank you so much for the huge amount of effort and care you’ve put into this, it’s detailed, it’s well constructed, it’s clever, it’s professional,  it involves all your fans, and it’s incredibly entertaining to take part in. I can’t imagine how much time this took to put together, so I think you deserve all our thanks and praise.

And of course this goes for everyone else who’s taken part in the project, like Tyler, Ethan, Kathryn, Amy, and all the actors who were in today’s video, they were great and I’m sure they played a great part in making this as fantastic as it is. 

thank you @markiplier!

and have fun with your theories, everyone!

Since Exo has sold out at Jamsil Stadium I’ve been seeing a lot of people say how ‘That’s not a big deal, they were handed their fame anyways.“

Really? Really?! In 2012 Exo-K were considered flops, to be SM’s first failure. Tao was heavily hated in the beginning, and Chen and Xiumin were in an entirely new country, barely being able to speak Chinese. And in 2013 the other 4 Chinese members having to come to a new country themselves and learn the language and culture. That must of been terrifying.


People hated Wolf. People started hating on Exo once Growl became huge. They gained so many sasaengs, creepy and disgusting people causing even more stress. Having to work so hard they went to the hospital. The shock when Kris left, and Suho having to stand on stage by himself to accept an award right after. Luhan being constantly sick from overworking, eventually having to leave also. A lot of fans left in 2014, saying Exo could never recover.

They came back with Exodus, having to work so hard, it was their best and most cohesive album yet. Jongdae put so much time into dancing, all of the members took time to prove on singing, especially their live vocals. That would never be easy, and I remember how long they promoted Call Me Baby, how much effort they pit into their live vocals during that time.

They come back with Lucky One and Monster, and it is my favorite album ever. Yet people still hated on them for trying something different, which is so sad. During this Yixing has to travel back and forth constantly, still with ot8 fans bashing on him.

To all of you who say Exo got a free ticket to fame, you couldn’t be more wrong. They have faced so many hardships, so many challenges. Yet they kept pushing and trying and growing. All of them having the mental strength to push through this and to grow is amazing. Yet with everything they have are triple million sellers. Their physical sales ate untouchable. They have sold out concert after concert, selling out Tokyo Dome 5 times.

Jamsil Stadium hasn’t been sold out in 17 years. And they sold out in 5 minutes. They are only the 2nd group to sell out at the stadium, only H.O.T has done it. And H.O.T. was HUGE back then. To achieve that in 5 years with all their obstacles is amazing.


All of you complaining, you would never be able to any of what they have done. Hiding behind anon and going to different Exo blogs or making passive aggressive tweets towards fans is cowardly. The members have worked so hard to get where they are, stop going after excited fans and find something more productive to do with your miserable lives.

Tony’s Story Arc Is A Phoenix

I originally wanted to do this as a continuation of this post, but I ended up doing it in a non-comic format, which made things way too long to be an add-on post to an already pretty long post. I’ll just put the first five panels freely and then put the rest under Read More.

Trying to get back into the groove of this doujin. Every time I draw Sesshomaru it’s so stressful cuz it feels like: ‘My God if I don’t draw him absolutely flawless they’ll never forgive me’. Anway, have a preview of one of the newer pages I’ve sketched this week. This one is page 61 (I am only at 68 atm. By my calculations I have about 20 more to sketch)

Also hey look! Flashback to Obon!Kagome from Chapt. 07!

“Come on, big guy, you have to come out sooner or later,” Stiles was begging at this point. Was it ironic that the human in this situation was the one begging for attention? Probably. Will Stiles mention that to Derek? No, because he values keeping his face intact.

For all his placation and begging, all he gets is a solid huff from the wolf currently hogging all of his bedding.

He had come home like any other day, dropping his backpack with a much too heavy thud when he had found the wolf sized lump curled on his bed. He had to admit, the first few times this had happened - he cooed and ‘ahh’ed at the werewolf who had taken to finding comfort in the ode de Stilinski. Now? Not so much. 

Sure, Stiles’ heart melted every time he witnessed Derek’s in full shift and tried not to break the magic of how much more tactile the man became when less hindered by his human shape. But this was the third time this week Stiles would be remaking his bed for non-jizz related reasons and that shit took effort. Not even being chased by monsters winded him quite as much as getting a fitted sheet on his mattress did.

“Der, you can’t just hide in my covers forever.”

anonymous asked:

FYI: 8 reasons why CR7 is the GOAT, therefore better than Messi. - CR7 is a better overall goals scorer. Better goals per game ratio than Messi. - CR7 is a better free- kick scorer. - Messi never prove himself outside Barca. CR7 makes his team better. Messi always rely on Xavi and Iniesta. - Messi constantly dissapears with Argentina when his team need him. - Messi usually dissapears in relevant Champion' matches. - CR7 is a better header scorer. (To be continue)

(part 2:) - CR7 is a player with more goals and assists in the history of CL, he is more decisive in this competition. - CR7 is more decisive with his national team. In WC 2010 Messi score 0 goal even North Korea score more than him. In WC 2014 only scored in a group stage. Don’t mention Copa America, he just scored 1 goals and next year missed penalty. All the greatest players of all times have won with their national team. But Messi won’t. I hope this informations will get in your head. Keep crying.

I’ve avoided getting involved in this “debate” over the last few years or so, but since you took so much effort in trying to convince me of something that isn’t even an argument to me, I have some time & I’m more than happy pay you the same courtesy in explaining to you with facts why this is so. Let’s do it by looking at each of the points you’ve included this so-called “information” I’m supposed to “get in my head”:

► “CR7 is a better overall goals scorer. Better goals per game ratio than Messi.

False.

All-time, club and country?

  • CR: 595 goals/852 matches = 0.70 goal ratio
  • Messi: 562 goals/698 matches = 0.81 goal ratio

All-time, just club?

  • CR: 524 goals/714 matches = 0.73 goal ratio
  • Messi: 504 goals/581 matches = 0.87 goal ratio

All-time, just country?

  • CR:  71 goals / 138 matches = 0.51 goal ratio
  • Messi: 58 goals / 117 matches = 0.50 goal ratio

CR’s ratio is 0.01 higher and he has had 21 more international matches played than Messi. Alright. Collectively though, that 0.01 doesn’t make him “better overall”. 

Conversion rates since 2009:

  • CR’s conversion rate total/outside the box: 15% / 5%
  • Messi’s conversion rate total/outside the box: 21% / 9%

What about when they’ve been at their very best, goalscoring-wise? Most goals scored in a calendar year:

  • CR: 69 goals (ratio: 1.17)
  • Messi: 91 goals (ratio: 1.32)

Not only is Messi better in terms of quantity of goals, he is also a better goalscorer when context is considered. How do they perform under pressure/when the team needs them the most? From 2016:

  • CR conversion rate when team is winning / when team is losing or drawing: 25% / 6%
  • Messi conversion rate when team is winning / when team is losing or drawing: 22% / 20%

Here’s an infographic (although it’s only updated up to 2015) to help better illustrate the importance of context & goalscoring when it comes to Messi and Cristiano:

(credit to Grup 14 and Sarah)

Goals after 1 dribble/2 dribbles/3 dribbles/4 dribbles:

  • CR: 45 goals/10 goals/2 goals/0 goals
  • Messi: 115 goals/40 goals/15 goals/4 goals

Pre-assisted goals:

  • CR: 13 goals
  • Messi: 90 goals

► “CR7 is a better free-kick scorer.

Not quite

  • Since Messi and Ronaldo have been playing together in Spain (2009-10 season): 
    • CR has scored 20 goals in 291 attempts. This creates a conversion rate 6.87%.
    • Messi scored 17 free-kick goals with 212 attempts, creating a conversion rate of 8.02%.
  • Since 2012: 
    • CR has scored 17; conversion rate = 7%, 
    • Messi has scored 23; conversion rate = 10.5%
  • Even more recent, just for fun: 
    • Messi has scored 3 free-kicks in 2017 alone
    • CR has converted only 3 since 2015.

What about in big matches?

  • Total free-kick goals in El Clasico: 
    • Messi = 2
    • CR = 0
  • Messi’s total free-kick goals in World Cup and Copa America matches: 2 
    • CA = 1 (vs. Panama)
    • WC = 1 (vs. Nigeria) 
  • CR’s total free-kick goals in World Cup & Euro matches: 0. 
    • With 43 attempts. On average, he has had a shot from a direct free-kick every 67 minutes he has been on the pitch (with a total of 2,884 minutes at major international tournaments) and has a ZERO PERCENT conversion rate.

► “Messi never proved himself outside Barca.”

The old “but can he do it on a cold, wet Tuesday night in Stoke?” argument is easy to lean on because he hasn’t, but it doesn’t change that it’s an extremely flawed argument. Let’s look at why - specifically England, where CR has proved himself outside of Spain since we’re doing a head-to-head comparison. 

  • Lionel Messi has scored more Champions League goals against English clubs than he has against sides from any other nation.
    • On the 25 occasions that he has lined up against English teams, Messi has scored a total of 16 goals. 
      • Arsenal - 9 goals in 6 matches. 
      • Manchester City - 5 goals in 5 matches. 
      • Manchester United - 2 goals (which helped Barcelona claim Champions League victories in Rome in 2009 and at Wembley Stadium in 2011

Never mind him having big performances against Bayern/Leverkusen, PSG/Lyon, AC Milan/Roma, Celtic/Rangers and etc. So, something tells me the kid from Rosario - who also played very well through the rough conditions he experienced there - CAN do it on cold, rainy night in Stoke. If you think he cannot simply because he hasn’t, that’s up to you. You’re entitled to your opinion. But the stats tell us another story.

► “CR7 makes his team better.”

Sure he does, he is one of football’s greatest. But Messi makes his even better

Messi’s total major club trophies: 29 TOTAL (including 2 trebles, one of those years winning the sextuple)

  • 8 League championships
  • 4 Champions Leagues
  • 4 Copas del Rey
  • 3 UEFA Supercups
  • 3 Club World Cups
  • 7 Supercopas de España

CR total major club trophies (RM+Manchester United): 16 TOTAL

  • 4 League championships
  • 2 Copas del Rey
  • 2 Champions Leagues
  • 1 Supercopa de España
  • 1 FA Cup
  • 1 EFL Cup
  • 1 Community Shield
  • 3 Club World Cups
  • 1 Super Cup 

Stats since 2009, when Messi and CR started playing together in the same league:

  • CR + RM: 9 major Trophies
    • + 1 Liga
    • + 2 Copas del Rey
    • + 2 Champions Leagues
    • + 1 Supercopa de España
    • + 2 Club World Cups
    • + 1 Super Cup
  • Messi + Barça: 20 major trophies
    • + 5 Ligas
    • + 3 Copas del Rey
    • + 2 Champions Leagues
    • + 5 Supercopas de España
    • + 3 Club World Cups
    • + 2 UEFA Super Cups

All-time assists, club and country:

  • CR: 195, in 852 matches
  • Messi: 230, in 698 matches

    ► “Messi always relies on Xavi and Iniesta.

    Another archaic myth that Messi has destroyed year after year. Crazy that people are still hanging on to this, even after Xavi has been gone for two years now and Iniesta has been on/off form while dealing with playing in/out of position. Meanwhile, Messi has continued to improve and remain the greatest. 

    This myth seemingly makes sense due to Messi’s lack of titles with Argentina compared to his achievements at Barca - but again, this is a very flawed argument. Messi is the greatest player in the world and Xavi/Iniesta are two of the greatest midfielders/were one of the greatest midfield duos of this generation. Together, the three of them contributed to a Barça that won everything a club can within a short span of time. But how can we say in the same sentence that “Barça is only successful because they rely on Messi” AND “Messi is only successful because he relies on Xavi/Iniesta”? Grasping at straws like this really isn’t necessary, because the truth of the matter is that they simply formed a brilliant partnership together. Barcelona successfully utilized the talents of these incredible players together to succeed. Some facts to further debunk this:

    • During Messi’s record breaking year when he scored 91 goals, he was assisted only eight times by Iniesta and five times by Xavi. 
    • Neither Xavi nor Iniesta have even assisted Messi the most in his career. It’s Dani Alves. 
    • Messi continues to have the most Barcelona assists himself since 2003/2004. At Barcelona, he has more assists alone than Iniesta and Xavi combined in their club careers.

    But maybe assists alone cannot determine the impact Xavi or Iniesta has on Messi. Alright, what about pre-assisted goals (goals pre-assisted by the scorer)?

    • As we said before, as of 2016, 90 of Messi’s goals were pre-assisted. This means that in ~23% of his goals, he started the play with key passes that ended up back with him scoring. 
    • While CR, surrounded by Modric, Kroos, Ozil, Di Maria, etc. (I’m not sure why people like to act like he hasn’t been surrounded by top players) throughout his career sits at 13 pre-assisted goals. 

    Not convinced? Then let’s look at Messi’s performances for Argentina, where he has no Xavi/Iniesta. You said….

    ► “Messi constantly disappears with Argentina when his team need him. CR7 is more decisive with his national team.

    Which is again, false. Of all the big name players that play for Argentina, you call the man who is, for his national team, the…

    • Top scorer in all international competitions, including friendlies
    • Top scorer in International friendlies
    • Top scorer from the penalty spot
    • Top scorer in all U-20 international competitions
    • Top scorer in FIFA World Cup qualification
    • Top scorer when looking at goals scored in one calendar year
    • Top hat-trick scorer in all international competitions, including friendlies
    • Top assister in all international competitions, including friendlies
    • Only player that have scored against all 9 South American Nations
    • Key contributor in terms of keeping possession, averaging 63 passes per game and converting 86.2 percent.

    “disappearing”, “dependent on Xavi/Iniesta” and "indecisive”?

    • Argentina’s National Team Win % in 2014 and 2018 World Cup Qualification with Messi: 65%
    • Without Messi? 22%.

      Not quite. 

      I would suggest reading and watching [this analysis] for a better perspective on this. There is a video there which compares how Messi plays for Argentina and how he plays for Barcelona and it reveals that there isn’t much difference between how he plays for both sides, but there is a difference in the behaviour of his teammates. The confidence that Messi receives from his teammates in Barcelona is far different from what he is offered by his teammates in Argentina. As I said before, Barcelona has been able to successfully utilize Messi’s talents/abilities and have reaped every award there is because of it - something Argentina has failed to take advantage of so far. 

      In regards to CR with this, a reminder:

      • CR goals international: 71 goals / 138 matches = 0.51 goal ratio
      • Messi goals: 58 goals / 117 matches = 0.50 goal ratio

      A difference of 0.01, with CR playing 21 more international games.

      International Assists?

      • CR: 23
      • Messi: 37 (in 21 less matches)

      International Goal Participation?

      • CR: Every 113m + 25s
      • Messi: Every 99m + 12s

      ► “In WC 2010 Messi score 0 goal even North Korea score more than him. In WC 2014 only scored in a group stage. Don’t mention Copa America, he just scored 1 goals and next year missed penalty.”

      It’s true that Messi didn’t score in WC 2010. He did get an assist (the same amount as CR in the tournament) and was named MOTM once (the same number of times as CR in the tournament). Funny you should mention North Korea though, the ONLY team Ronaldo scored against in WC 2010. Once. After Portugal was already up 6-0. 

      Also, I’m not sure which WC 2014 you were watching. I was watching the one where Ronaldo’s only goal in this tournament was also in the group stage (against Ghana), while Messi scored four times in the group stages, assisted Di Maria’s goal which carried them in the round of 16, and carried his team to the final. 

      And lol ”don’t mention Copa America”? Why? Because Leo carried his team to the final twice in two years?

      In 2015:

      • 1 goal, 2 penalties (including the ONLY one of his teammates to do so in the final) 
      • 3 assists

      In 2016: 

      • 5 goals 
      • 4 assists
        • (If you want to compare to CR’s Euro 2016, where he scored 3 and assisted 3). 
      • Again, carried his team to the final. But sure, summarize the tournament as a “missed penalty” to fit your narrative. 

      Also worth mentioning that in 2007, at age 20, he also set up the game winning goal against the US in the opening 4-1 win, scored the game-tying first goal vs Colombia in their 4-2 win, assisted their only goal against Paraguay in the beginning of the knockout stage, scored the second goal in their quarter-final victory, and another in their 3-0 semifinal win - which lead to the first of the three Copa America finals he’s played in. 

      ► “CR7 is a better header scorer.

      Yes, a 6′1 CR is better at scoring headers than a 5′7 Messi (*pretends to be shocked*). CR just passed Aduriz for this record a few months ago actually, which isn’t surprising - Cristiano has shown he’s very good in the air. Nobody is denying that Cristiano has great qualities as a player. But as I’m sure you would agree, this argument alone, does not cement anyone as the greatest of all time. Also notable to mention that Barça as a team - tactics/style kept in mind - score less headers. Next. 

      ► “Messi disappears in relevant Champions League matches.

      Did you even try with this one? A few examples of how wrong this is off the top of my head? 

      UCL Final vs. Manchester United, 2009

      UCL Quarterfinals vs. Arsenal, 2010

      • Scored four goals in the second leg, the first three in just 21 minutes

      UCL Semifinals vs. Real Madrid, 2011

      • Scored twice in ten minutes in the first leg. We advanced to the final 3-1 on aggregate. 

      UCL Final vs. Manchester United, 2011

      UCL Semifinals vs. Bayern, 2015

      • Nobody will ever forget his two goals in this extremely ‘relevant’ match, as you put it.
      • Was also at the heart of Neymar’s second goal in the second leg.

      UCL Final at Berlin against Juventus, 2015

      • Messi’s pass to Alba sparked the first goal scored by Rakitic
      • Messi was at the heart of the counter attack which gave Barca the lead again.
      • He wasn’t on the scoresheet, but he made his presence felt.

      It’s true that our last two Champions League tournaments were not what we hoped they would be, but in our ‘relevant’ matches then, Leo still scored 3 against Arsenal over both legs and scored a crucial penalty in our historic PSG comeback this year.

      I couldn’t help but notice how you didn’t have a counter-response about CR and ‘relevant’ CL matches. Could it have to do with numbers like this, from last season?:

      ^ (And again, credit to Sarah for this.)

      And speaking of ‘relevant’ matches, why not mention ‘relevant’ league matches?

      Credit to Grup 14 for the graph. Messi’s line (higher than CR’s in all aspects) shows a relatively steady performance in games (goals/assists) that isn’t affected by the quality of the opposition - so he’s there (more or less) regardless of ‘relevance’ of the match. Meanwhile, as we can see, CR follows an obvious increase in performance as the quality of the opposing team decreases.

      ► “CR7 is a player with more goals and assists in the history of CL, he is more decisive in this competition

      CR does have an advantage when it comes to assists in this competition (37 in 145 vs. Messi’s 25 in 115) - the only competition which he surpasses Messi in assists. And I’m certainly not denying that he’s decisive in this competition. Nobody could.

      But with goals:

      • CR: 104 goals in 145 games = 0.72 goals/game
      • Messi: 94 goals in 115 games = 0.82 goals/game

      And ultimately, titles:

      • CR: 3
      • Messi: 4

       ► “All the greatest players of all times have won with their national team. But Messi won’t.

      Cruyff. Raul. Puskas. Eusebio. Zico. Maldini. Ballack. Bergkamp. Figo. Gascoigne. Laudrup. And the list goes on.

      The greatness of these players, all who have never won an international title, are not questioned. A list Cristiano was also on just last year. Did you create this entire argument after the goal Eder scored, which CR watched from the bench?Did that moment make you believe it can overshadow all of the facts above? 

      If you want to get technical, Messi won with Argentina in 2008, when he became an olympic champion and was highlighted as one of the standout players in the tournament. 

      Neither CR nor Leo has lead their team to a World Cup. 

      But it is true that Messi hasn’t won a Copa America, despite playing in 3 finals and standing out in each one of those tournaments. 

      ► Other:

      • Most Ballons d'Or (5): Messi
      • Most consecutive Ballons d'Or (4): Messi
      • Most goals in La Liga history (347): Messi
      • Most assists in La Liga history (137): Messi
      • Most goals scored in a La Liga season (50): Messi
      • Most goals scored in a club season (73): Messi
      • Most goals in El Clasico history (23): Messi
      • Most assists in El Clasico history (13): Messi

      All I have to say is that if after going through the facts, doing some reading (some suggestions = Lionel Messi is ImpossibleBeyond stats and stunts - The gulf between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo widened in 2016Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo - Who’s the best goalscorer?Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo - What defines a big-game player?, and the Messi vs. Ronaldo resource), some watching/listening (check out Lionel Messi - The World’s GreatestCruijffCast - Episode 7 - Messi x Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi vs. No Space, and Lionel Messi - The 10 Smartest Skills Without Touching the Ball), and maybe just watching some of Messi’s matches that will show you the things stats can’t fully capture… if you believe that headers in a differing styles of play and one international title can justify your entire argument, then there’s no more convincing I can do. This is why I like to stay out of this debate these days. Because for me, although CR is undoubtedly one of the great players of this generation, the greatest of all time isn’t debatable. 

      So if you haven’t guessed it by now, there are no tears over here. If you need a tissue though, let me know!

      Take care of my Babies or you’ll die - Wonder Woman x Reader

      Summary : Diana has a deep distrust of Men’s World’s doctors, and have trouble letting them handle her pregnant girlfriend. 

      I lost the original message but this story is for @freethecagedeggs. Also, Imma indulge @loverandomness2 because she’s been asking for this for a long time and I’m finally writing it :-). 

      My masterlist blog : https://ella-ravenwood-archives.tumblr.com

      _________________________________________________

      You couldn’t wait for all of this to be over. 

      For the baby to finally arrive. 

      Not because pregnancy was displeasing, in fact, you were one of those lucky women that had a smooth one. 

      You only had a few morning sickness, you weren’t too tired, it didn’t hurt much (yet)…The only thing you had was your weird cravings but, then again, pickles and ice cream was a thing you ate together even before being pregnant. 

      Nope. You don’t want all of this to be over because it’s difficult and tiring…But because your damn girlfriend cannot give you or anyone approaching you of a few feet a single break ! 

      “(Y/N), don’t do this it could hurt the baby !”, “(Y/N) eat this it’s good for the baby”, “(Y/N), please babe, do this exercice it’s good for our little one”…The worst was how annoying she became whenever you had a doctor appointment. 

      Oh. My. God.

      ************

      When you and Diana decided to become parents, you settled for a sperm donor instead of adoption, because it was just easier, it would take less time and trouble…You also decided that you should be the one bearing the child, kind of unsure how things would work with Diana (after all, she had been made out of clay and given life by Zeus…). 

      At first, everything went smoothly. 

      You were both just too damn excited. And all your friends were extremely supportive. Of course they were. 

      Your older brother, Bruce, helped you through so many hard times in your life, he definitely wasn’t about to give up on you (no matter what some stuck up rich people thought about him for doing so…damn you guys lived in the XXIst century, what was the problem of a same sex couple adopting ?!), and he would never admit it because he wasn’t the cheesy type of man but…He already loved his future nephew/niece deeply. 

      The day he brought you a teddy bear that looked astonishingly like the one you had when you were a kid, that exact teddy bear your dad gave you to “help you through any difficult times” (and it really did…whenever you were sad, for example missing your parents dearly, you’d hug the hell out of that bear and it would make you feel so much better), and when Bruce told you it was difficult to find the same one you had as a kid and it took him a lot of time and effort to do so, but you and your future child were definitely worth it…You teared up. You lied by saying your hormones were messing around with your emotions, and acted like it was not a big deal but…It meant the world that your beloved older brother would go through all that trouble just for a teddy bear for your baby.

      I wish they used 3D models for Sonic Mania. They're kinda restricting the graphics potential with 2D sprites.

      Not really, because creating fluid and vibrant sprites takes just as much time and effort as it does for 3D models.

      I feel a lot of people don’t give enough credit to the spritework business in general, usually by viewing sprites as less impressive than 3D models due to how supposedly primitive they are by comparison. Even though, as shown by Mania itself, as well as the original Genesis trilogy and Sonic CD, spritework when done right can achieve the desired results just as well, to amazing results of it’s own kind.

      Hell, just look at Mania’s now-famous title screen for example:

      Regardless of how much time it actually took to complete, you can tell there was a lot of effort spent in order to make it look as smooth and expressive as it is. And this is just the title screen. The rest of what we’ve seen so far looks just as eye-catching and appealing. The character animations, the enemy animations, the zones and their intricate colour schemes and patterns…

      Why should such obvious effort be disregarded purely because it’s not in full 3D?

      These guys!

      So this took way longer than it should have, but here’s my new Bubbline! These guys are so cute. When there started being lil hints about them being together back in earlier seasons of AT I was super excited. This month especially, I want to put some effort into my queer femme couple paintings. Pharmercy next maybe? Garnet? <3

      I feel like I’ve been improving so much with my digital painting, but there’s still so much more to learn and work on. This is exciting rather than demotivating at the moment because I’m in a big art mood. 🌈

      All of sakuras effort and love was so pointless.She loves sasuke for years,is always loyal and waiting,took literally every step in their relationship,just to get knocked up and stuck alone raising a kid.I don't get how sakura can be happy,he left her,no reason can fix all those years He was gone.And this "important mission" was only important for the boruto plot line.And then he refuses to kiss her when the last time they saw each other was years ago,I can see how much he loves her.

      Okay, I really can’t be bothered to be nice about this.

      “All of Sakura’s effort and love was so pointless”

      No it wasn’t, it healed him of his loneliness and ensured that no matter where he maybe and what others may think of him, he’d always have a home to come back to where two people love him very much:

      But good job in starting the ask with such a generically ignorant comment.

      “Took literally every step in their relationship”

      In terms of their actual relationship, you don’t know who took which step because they progressed off panel, so please don’t pull things out of your ass.

      “Just to get knocked up and stuck alone raising a kid”

      That’s like saying Minato and Kushina spent all that time loving each other and preparing to be a family together, just so that they could immediately die and leave Naruto to grow up alone. The stupidity of this comment completely ignores the circumstances of how the situation came to be. Sarada also wasn’t just some random “kid” that Sakura was “stuck” with no alternative to raise. I like how you choose to word it in such a way as to make the scenario seem as dire as possible. It’s not going to work.

      “I don’t get how Sakura can be happy”

      Because unlike you and many others who share similarly one dimensional thoughts, she actually understands Sasuke and knows that he is gone for their sake, she knows how much he cares for the both of them, and she knows that despite his absence, their hearts remained connected:

      It’s not hard. Sakura knows that Sasuke is away because he has to be, not because he wants to be.

      “He left her, no reason can fix all those years he was gone”

      Sasuke’s not looking for a reason to “fix” his mistake. He acknowledges it and apologised for it. He just hoped that Sarada would at least understand why he did what he did, because he knew that Sakura was already aware.

      “And this “important mission” was only important for the Boruto plot line”

      What on earth does this prove? That’s like saying how Obito was only the person who caused the most shit in the entire series because of the Naruto plot line, or how Hashirama was only considered the “God of Shinobi” because of the Naruto plot line. It’s just like, what’s your point?

      “And then he refuses to kiss her when the last time they saw each other was years ago, I can see how much he loves her”

      Seeing as how that was a sarcastic comment, you clearly don’t see the love that’s between them.

      • But Sakura does:
      • Sarada does:
      • Naruto and Chouchou do:
      • And Karin does as well:

      It’s funny how a child like Chouchou who just barely met Sasuke and learned of their family situation, was able to gain a batter understanding of who Sasuke was, then someone like you who has supposedly known him for far longer, but still doesn’t have the faintest understanding of his character.

      “THE TALK”

      Jungkook wanted to kill Taehyung.

      It was his stupid idea. He was the one that convinced Jungkook to finally answer to Yoongi’s pleading messages. The texts he kept reading over and over again in his head, like a mantra. Words that kept making him both mad and sad.

      “Please, we need to talk”

      “Jungkook, answer me”

      “Can’t you hear me out?”

      “Jungkook…”

      2 weeks had gone since the last time Jungkook saw the Yoongi. 14 days since he stormed out of the older’s apartment - the food heating up in the oven, Half Moon softly playing in the background. 20.160 minutes since Yoongi broke his heart like it was nothing. 

      “You’re not my fucking boyfriend”

      Jungkook exhaled, he didn’t realize he was holding his breath for so long. His track of thoughts making his heart ache, the memory bringing the feeling he’s starting to get used to. Like something was stuck in his throat, a cold feeling in his stomach. He stood up from the couch, too nervous to keep sitting still. He paced in Tae’s living room, to the tv (that he keeps turning on and off), to the window (that he opens when he feels like he needs to breathe and closes when he gets too cold). He was deciding if he should crack the window open just a bit, to feel the night breeze when he heard a noise coming from the lift followed by steps. A minute or two passed until Jungkook heard an unsure knocking. 

      He was definitely not ready to deal with this.

      Taehyung had talked with Jungkook about this and had convinced the boy that he should just talk to Yoongi already and sort things out. He needed to stop whining about what had happened, Tae had said. Jin was worried about him and with the fact that Jungkook hadn’t come back home yet. After all that happened, Jungkook still didn’t want his cousin to hate Yoongi for it. They were friends for a long time and the young boy didn’t want to come between them because of his relationship issues. But he couldn’t run from his problems forever, as Tae had told him non stop for the last few days. 

      He walked to the door and took a deep breath, before turning the knob and finally facing Yoongi.

      “Jungkook”

      He hasn’t changed a bit, but Jungkook guessed that even if it had felt like a lifetime, they were apart for only 2 weeks, not enough time to change so much. His hair was messy, like he couldn’t - and probably didn’t - mind about the way he looked too much to put an actual effort and wearing his well known oversized back coat that Jungkook had borrowed once or twice when he had spent the night in the studio, laying on the couch, softly humming the song that Yoongi kept playing over and over while editing it. The boy’s heart hurt.

      “Hi, hyung…. Hm…” Now that Yoongi was finally there, Jungkook wasn’t so sure about what he should say or do, so he just tried to be polite. “Come on in”

      Yoongi stepped in the apartment slowly, like he didn’t know the place and hadn’t been there so many times. He stopped and stared at Jungkook, his eyes too intimidating for the young boy, that turns to quickly close the door.

      Keep breathing, he reminds himself.

      “Ah… Do you want something… To drink?” Jungkook’s low voice dragged Yoongi out of his thoughts, and he looked around the living room, noticing how nervous he felt in the moment, they were alone and could finally talk.

      “Oh, no, I’m good…”, Yoongi mumble, taking a seat on the couch. He wasn’t used to feeling so nervous around Jungkook, their relationship was always so carefree and comfortable. Yoongi felt like he didn’t need to worry about anything when he was with the boy, but that clearly had changed after he had messed everything up with those damn texts and his stupid problems. 

      When both of them were finally sitting side by side (with a huge space between them) on the couch, no one said anything for what felt like years. Jungkook kept looking at the window, thinking that maybe he should’ve opened the damn thing, the air hot and stifling in the room.

      “How…Are you?” Yoongi regretted his words as soon as it left his mouth. It wasn’t the right time for small talk, he knew it, but he couldn’t figure out how to begin. Before he could say another thing, Jungkook spoke in a rushed, pleading voice.

      “Please, hyung… Please, just talk. You wanted to talk, you asked me to do it… Then do.” His voice sounded broken, Yoongi sensed a cold feeling washing over this body “Let’s get this over with already. I know that neither of us wants to be here and…”

      “You’re wrong”

      “What?”

      “I said… You’re wrong,” Yoongi paused, licking his lips, his eyes on the floor. The clock tickled a few times before he continued, Jungkook eyes locked at the older. “I want to be here. I’m so fucking happy I’m seeing you,” his eyes left the floor to look right into big doe ones, that stared back at him “I’m so glad you asked me to come. I know you probably didn’t want to see or hear me, and I can only imagine Taehyung convincing you to talk to me and I’m glad he did because… Jungkook… I need to talk, to explain myself… I need to apologize." 

      "Hyung,” the words were barely a whisper, making Yoongi doubt if  Jungkook had really called him or was it just his imagination playing tricks with him yet again. He kept listening to Jungkook’s voice in his head for the past two weeks, he couldn’t make it out what was real any longer. 

      “I’m so fucking sorry. I’m so… I’m so ashamed of the way I treated you, the things I said to you, Jungkookie…” the nickname naturally came out of his lips like it did so many times, Jungkook rubbed his hands together, no longer able to look at Yoongi and breathe at the same time. “I was out of my mind”

      “Please… Don’t. Don’t play this card on me. You knew what you said, you…”

      “That’s not what I’m trying to say. Fuck.” Yoongi’s hands covered his face, his breath loud through his fingers. He messed his hair even more before continuing. “I know what I said. I knew what I was saying when I sent you that but I regret it, Jungkook. I said that for the wrong reasons and I know I don’t have the right to make excuses for myself but this is all I can do. All I can ask is for you to, please, listen to me… I can go way, if you want to, I’ll go and I won’t bother you anymore but please let me talk first…”  

      Jungkook couldn’t just sit there. He felt like his body couldn’t cope with it all and remain still, Yoongi’s voice doing things to his head, to his stomach. To his heart. He walked to the window, opening it as much as it possible, the cool breeze matching his cold fingers, his gaze into the night. He couldn’t listen and watch the older, not in that moment, not at the same time - it was just too much. 

      “I never felt like that… Like this. With anyone. My head is a mess and my heart… I never paid too much attention to it. I know I act like I’m tough but, I guess you know me enough to know that it’s just an act. I’m afraid and I’m insecure and when you came into my life… Jungkook, you wrecked me.”

      Yoongi looked up at the ceiling, in a combination of exasperation and nervousness, his voice sounding almost strangled, lacking air and strength. Writing songs was way easier than pouring his heart out in the open.

      “I didn’t know how to deal with it. With my feelings, with you… With my fear of losing and hurting you”

      “It was exactly what you did.” the young boy laughed, humorless, his voice cracking. “Funny enough, you did hurt me. Lost me”

      Jungkook was having trouble staying still, looking at the dark night, listening to it all. He felt hot from the gaze that he knew was on his back. His heart seemed like it was beating in his throat.

      “I know. I’m a fucking joke, right? I don’t know what’s wrong with me… I just… It felt too much. One day I was alone, I could spend countless hours working, not thinking about anything but music. That was my life, as pathetic as it may sound but… I could control it, deal with it. But then you showed up and before I knew…”

      “You could have told me. You could have asked me to… Step back,” his voice was barely a mumble, but the sound was clear in the silence of the room “If I was too much, if I was a problem I-”

      “Don’t. Please, don’t say it. Don’t think like this… I’m the one that’s wrong. I was the one that was too much of a coward to deal with his feelings and…” the thought of getting up from the couch and walking to the boy crossed Yoongi’s mind for a second before he decided against it, he needed to give him some - any - space. “I was working too much… That girl you saw at my house that day, her name is Suran. I’m producing her album. She’s a friend and… I was worried, stressed and I hadn’t taken the time to think about us. Really think, after all that happened that day in the studio… After our date…”

      “Then you could have, at least, warned me. Asked me for some space or… Talked to me. All I wanted was to be by your side, what’s wrong with that? I thought you wanted it too…”

      “I wanted, I…”

      “Why didn’t you tell me then? Why did you keep ditching me? Why did you have to treat me like I was no one? Like you didn’t care? I… Hyung… That - That hurt.” Jungkook snapped. He turned his body and looked at Yoongi, at his eyes, managing to hold the stare “That fucking hurt so much and you say you had feelings for me but you couldn’t even talk to me when all I did was listen to you. You made me believe we were… Something… And then you…”

      “We were - we are something. You are something for me… You’re… Fuck this.” getting up from the couch like his body was electrified, Yoongi ran his hand through his hair, pulling it a little before he lets an exasperated sign. “You’re so much more than something… You’re everything for me now and I know I messed up, I know I said I would go if you ask me to but… Please, don’t. I really like you, I…”

      “Hyung…”

      “I love you, Jungkook. I really fucking love you and I can’t tell you how sorry I am for the way I treated you, for the things I said. I didn’t’ mean it like that and I know I hurt you. I was so afraid I wasn’t enough and… I’m not.” he blinked at the floor and, then, at the ceiling, fighting away the tears he didn’t want to let it fall. Tears lead to pity and it was the last thing he wanted from Jungkook. We wanted forgiveness. He wanted the boy back.

      “You were enough… You are…” Jungkook didn’t know how to react, his thoughts all messed up in his mind when all he could think was that Yoongi loved him too. Before he could say or do something, the older kept talking.

      “I’m not and it’s ok… I don’t know how to deal with my feelings, with other’s feelings. I don’t know how to date… But, Jungkook, if you feel like you could forgive me… If you give me a chance to learn…”

      “Yes”

      “What? What do you mean by yes?”

      “I mean I forgive you, hyung.”

      “Jungkook…” he took some steps until he was close to the boy, his hand touched his arm.

      “I think I overreacted and - No, stop, let me talk this time. Please” touching the hand that was on his arm with his cold fingers, Jungkook bites his lips before he continued “You did hurt me, you did but you were somehow right in a way… We weren’t dating, I wasn’t your boyfriend and I think I wanted it so much, i… I thought I was.”

      “And I want you to be. I want you as my boyfriend. But I wanna make it right. Let me make it right this time” the words were whispered, Yoongi’s eyes moving from the boy’s doe eyes to his soft lips. 

      “Promise me you won’t hurt me again. Promise you’ll talk to me…” hands soft caressed Jungkook’s face, his eyes shutting as to make the feeling stronger.

      “I promise, Jungkook, I promise. I… I missed you. I know I don’t have the right to tell you this now but, God, I missed you so fucking much. I miss your voice calling me, telling me that I’m taking too long to finish my work. I miss your touch, I miss feeling your fingers in mine even when you touched me just for a second, even when your fingers just ghosts into mine. I miss it. I miss hearing you laugh and seeing your smile. I miss talking to you on the phone when you can’t sleep. I miss the way you annoyed me, or you tried to… I miss the way you can’t annoy me at all because when you’re with me that’s all that matters. I miss being with you, next to you, seeing you or just hearing you. Fuck. Jungkook. I… I can’t. I can’t deal with being away from you because ever since I met you, you didn’t leave my side and I don’t want you to. I can’t have you away from me and these few weeks have been hell for me because I can’t. Oh, fuck it. I can. I know I can but I don’t fucking want to. I want you with me. So, please… Please forgive me. Forgive me and be with me. Be the one that teaches me… Teach me how to cherish you. How to be a better person for you. That’s all I want.”

      “Taehyung will kill you if you hurt me again, hyung. You better know that this is your last chance” the boy leaned in, his hands gripping Yoongi’s coat, to keep him close. They looked each other in the eye, hot breath mixed before Jungkook’s lips ghosted on Yoongi’s, mouths molding into each other. A sound of relief. “Keep your promise”



      “I love you too…”



      Riza and Ed’s conversation from FMA: To the Promised Day

      Here’s the full translation of one of the Free Event scenes you can unlock in Fullmetal Alchemist: Yakusoku no Hi (PSP game, untranslated), which I summarized here along with other RoyAi content from the game.

      In this mini drama, Riza talks to Ed about his father, alchemy, and her relationship with Roy. It’s both heartbreaking and touching. Make sure you have your tissues ready for Riza and Ed’s daddy issues! (Trust me, after reading this, there’ll be no doubt in your mind that Riza will make a good mother someday. I was seriously crying after re-reading the entire conversation.)

      Please credit/mention my blog when you use my summary/translation for your works. Thanks <3
