this was an important scene for me

hmmm the thing is we’ve had a nod to ascension day via isak’s ig which, I, a Christian, had to be reminded was happening bc it very nearly passed me by without me realising. but Ramadan, one of the most important months in the Islamic calendar, is being completely ignored….even tho the main is a practicing Muslim?? like how hard would it be to have made a 40 second scene with no obvious time stamp/date reference of Sana just wishing her family a happy Ramadan, which Julie could have uploaded once Ramadan officially commenced?? I’m ?????

Alright guys, I asked Mark and Steven about Garridebs!

Mark, very sincerely and personably (make of that what you will), agreed with me about the moment’s emotional importance, and expressed that he had really hoped to include the scene. He said that they (I can’t remember his wording exactly) either tried it or he ran through some possible scenarios and it wouldn’t have fit anywhere (this depends on the different opinions of “was Johnlock intended to be fulfilled or not”). He mentioned the writing phenomenon of “kill your babies” when saying how much he wanted to do the scene. He even called it “throttle the nursery” because it was such a big blow to him.

Steven said that there have been plenty of scenes where Sherlock and John’s care for each other has been shown (his exact emphatic words were “yes yes they would just say wow this is my favorite person!”) and so the Garridebs scene would not be a revelation of that care, as it was in the novels in Victorian times. He said the moment itself is “a retelling of The Red Headed League, but not as good”. I could tell that this is a question he’s been asked before or has thought on a lot, because he delivered the answer very straightforward and with an air of, he’s tired of explaining this and finds it very obvious.

So, interpret all this however you want, I mean shit I still have my strong opinions in this. But I’m just very glad to have been able to ask them both, and in a more private and informal setting, and actually get answers. @teaandqueerbaiting @northray @isitandwonder @the-blue-carbuncle @skulls-and-tea @themanandthemachine @sherlock-overflow-error @marcespot @monikakrasnorada @thedepthsofmyshame @missmuffin221

Tbh I have mixed feelings about the kacchako fight it was missing the feel the manga gave off like the composition and how the scenes were animated could have been more expressive. Also I feel like they rushed the “where do you see fragile scene” and left out that one line where bakugou addressed how dangerous “dekus” plan was for Uraraka like ._. And shipping aside its bakugou (and this is still in an early stage of his character) who was showing some type of concern for a character which imo is a big thing regardless of who it’s for well cause it’s HIM. I guess the fact that they dedicated a whole episode to the fight yet still left out some important character dialogue and lacked in some parts of the animation is what bothers me

Sooo what's your take on the ring scene? And our friend the Centipede showing up?

The ring scene seemed to me like a continuation of what we already saw in chapter 125. It was Touka basically trying (and succeeding) to anchor Kaneki by giving him something to hold on to. The ring was important to her because it’s something that she held on to in times of difficulty. I think that her wish for Kaneki to find similar comfort in it is pretty clear. I also wonder if she purposefully gave him something which is tied to her parents, given how Kaneki is an orphan and has a history of choosing bad parental role models. 

Also, as other people have said, the scene was also a parallel to this: 

Kaneki is filling that emptiness by holding on to Touka like Takizawa filled his by giving his life the purpose of living for Akira and Amon’s sake. 

As for the centipede, I don’t know how to interpret it besides a generic bad omen of what’s to come. We already know that all of the characters are running away from their problems and refusing to grow (Mutsuki losing their composure when they made it clear that they can’t let go of the past was just the most recent addition to this narrative), and many hints have been dropped that shit’s about to go down. 

In the original series, the centipede was symbolic of Kaneki’s ghoul side, and of how violence was necessary in order to become strong. That was Yamori’s lesson, one Kaneki made his by eating his kagune. So I’m wondering if the centipede here is supposed to hint at Kaneki possibly falling back to that mindset, especially now that he’s reached emotional intimacy with Touka, which, ironically, puts a wider target on both of them, especially given the parallels to the anteiku raid.

I personally headcanon that one of the reasons she says "don't do this to me" during the tea scene is because she's having that same moment of panic that Peebee does in her romance - where she's realizing that Ryder has the potential of becoming really, really, really important to her. So she tells Sara to not "do this" to her in case she is serious, because Suvi can see it becoming very serious.

idk how Peebee’s romance goes but that’s an interesting thought. I headcanon it as her being hurt by someone she loved in her past, as I mentioned. I was surprised, like she was smiling after the kiss and then suddenly said that line sounding a bit broken, I really didn’t expect it. Like I don’t want to keep putting sad headcanons for her but I really think something went wrong.

It’s a wild guess for now but maybe it could be both. She already started to care about Sara so she doesn’t want this to go further unless she really means it, cause that scene was the point of entering an actual relationship and she’d definitely have more feelings for her after that

As you get older, you might start to find that things get harder. The world isn’t always a kind place. Especially for men like us. Take a look at the people on this mat. We are your community. When things get hard, we are gonna be the ones who hold each other up. As Randall’s father, you are his foundation. Come lie down, as if you’re gonna do a push-up. Randall, climb on your father’s back.

“I think that… I think that until you’ve fought those battles yourself, until you’ve had the guts to stand up for who you are, you should be really fucking careful talking about and putting yourself above Gay Pride.”

I’ve wanted to talk for So Long about the portrayal of anxiety in YOI but I’ve been having so much trouble putting together what I want to say in the most effective manner. I kept trying to come at this in a more analytical fashion, but considering that this is such a personally important topic to me, I’m going to try a more emotional approach. Something I don’t normally do.

So really, to start off, I wanna say that I’m so damn thankful for the way Yuuri is written. Really, seriously. I don’t think I’ve ever had the ability to relate more to character; Yuuri is close to a mirror of my own experiences with anxiety and it’s so fantastic to have a model of development and growth for me and people like me. I found the portrayal to be frighteningly accurate, from types of thoughts, behaviors, mannerisms… I think the episode that stood out to me the most in terms of Yuuri’s anxiety was ep7, aka Yuuri’s on-screen panic attack episode. 

The first thing I noticed was this: 

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found myself in that exact position. I bounce my legs when I panic, just like Yuuri is doing here. Head in his hands, breathing heavily, bouncing and jostling limbs. This isn’t the Mary-Sue cutesy portrayal of anxiety–this is a real anxiety disorder. It’s not pretty. It’s not easy. It can’t be fixed with a single word or a touch or a person. Quite frankly, it’s ugly and you lose control of your body.

gif request meme: favorite hero heroic moment + game of thrones (for @thatrobbstark)

yall know how important it is having a gay sex scene with middle eastern muslim men be graphic in a soft and tender and poetic manner?? like american gods DID THAT! erased islamophobia/racist stereotypes of MENA men while romanticizing gay sex! 

tbh i don’t get all the hate with tg:re 125??

People are going ‘omg ishida disappointed me’ ‘omg this is such a bad writing’ ‘tg is shit now’ ‘this chapter is a waste its not important at all’ etc etc 

Are people actually treating this chapter as just a perverted hentai ‘fanservice’ chapter with no meaning? At this point I cant even tell if they’re trolling or serious

If you have been reading tokyo ghoul, you should realize that ishida puts every chapter, scene and dialogues with meaning. So do you actually think that an ishida would spend AN ENTIRE FLIPPIN CHAPTER of kaniki’s and touka’s sexual intercourse with NO MEANING AT ALL? Like come on lol did you guys not see kaneki’s tears or the last scene? or have you guys given ANY THOUGHTS on why on earth there’s a picture of a butterfly in the first page?

there are a lot of times in films/novels where sexual intercourse is often used to symbolize comfort, warmth, and/or closeness of a relationship between 2 characters.

in my view this is some important process for kaneki’s development. Kaneki used to feel lonely and suicidal and all, and through arima he wanted to live again but it was more due to a sense of duty. Although he wanted to live, he had nothing to grasp on to make that feeling come alive. 

But through this chapter, he gained it through touka. He feels wanted and doesn’t feel lonely, as shown through the last panel of this chapter, where he is looking like a child sleeping on his mother’s laps, feeling warm and comfortable for once. This panel is all the more obvious if you see ishida’s older painting of kaneki in the same exact pose, except there’s no touka. You can tell when he cries. He’s never felt such emotions before other than tragedy and despair. The feeling of being loved by somebody else - especially from someone that he cares so much about, was something that he deeply longed for. 

And some people are acting as if the series has been butchered or it turned into some shit writing lmao 

Really?

Ohmygod, Anne reacting to getting her first period is the most #relatable thing to ever happen on a TV show. 

Her reactions, verbatim:

  • “Please plant some pink roses on my grave.”
  • “I’m not ready to be a WOman!!!”
  • “There’s been some kind of mistake. There’s no way God would think it’s time for ME to be a woman!”
  • “This can’t be happening…”
  • “Every MONTH? But WHY?”
  • “This is a waking nightmare. I hate this.”
  • “*groans loudly*”
  • “This is SO inconvenient!”

Like I said. Relatable.
