Id love to see 29 Ruby x Sapphire! (Amedot would be great too if you'd prefer to draw that :D)
Sweet Moment : Cooking together ! I haven’t drawn Rupphire in a veeeery long time, it was nice:D(I know I’m super late but I really wanna catch up with the Sweet Moments meme, thanks for waiting all this time!)
So I’m sure a few of you might have noticed this, although it was very subtle. But during ‘Gem Heist’, Holly Blue mentions that the door into the enclosure had been opened once before.
It was opened for one single human, but for what purpose, we don’t yet know. Ruby unfortunately interrupts her.
But later on, in ‘The Zoo’, Jay-Ten (J10) gives us a little more insight.
So this door was only ever opened once, to help a Zooman who was hurt. This occurred “a very long time ago”, which doesn’t really give us a solid timeline. We don’t know the life expectancy of Zoomen or if the gems caring for them are warping their perception of time or not.
The point is, it’s very likely said human is out there. Though the possibilities of them being alive seem slim.
Not only do the Amethyst guards threaten to ‘throw Steven into space’, as if it’s something they’ve done before, but Holly Blue also mentions a ‘human disposal shoot’.
These ‘threads’ spinning around the Zoo seem to cut off at the ends. I speculate these ‘human disposal shoots’ ran through these ‘threads’ and launched humans that were no longer needed or wanted into space like garbage. (Which is incredibly morbid.)
But let’s give them the benefit of the doubt. Let’s say this human managed to escape, perhaps by hijacking a Red Eye or a Roaming Eye.
Where would they be now? Would they have made it to earth? Is there a possibility we may have seen them before?
Well, we know every human character fairly well. Except in the case of Mr. Frowney and Andy who are newer characters, we were still immediately given backstory on them to know they’re not from The Zoo.
So … who’s the only character we know so little about that we can theorize that they came from the Zoo?
warnings: lil bit of bryce the predator but mostly fluff and :)
a/n: this is my first time writing an imagine for Zach / 13 reasons why so !!!! I love ross butler !!!!!!!!!!!
“Y/N, come and join us!” You glanced over your shoulder, spotting the gang crowed into a circle in the sitting room but more specifically, you spotted Bryce who was waving you over.
You rolled your eyes, smiling slightly as you told Clay you’d be back after a round of whatever they were playing. He nodded, turning to Hannah to continue their conversation and you left to join the rest of your friends.
You ignored Bryce who was insisting you sit beside him but you had very little trust in that boy, so instead you sat in the empty space beside Zach.
But Bryce was a persistent little guy, unused to the dismissal of his efforts from a girl and so he shooed the guy on your other side and seated himself next to you.
You rolled your eyes, relaxing your head back against the sofa to which Zach released a bout of laughter. You smiled, resting your head against Zach’s shoulder as you watched your friends decide on a game.
Julia you've read the article? So what do you think?
i did! like i said in my tags, i think the author has a knack for inserting his own plot into the overall story. i think harry’s quotes are lovely, appreciative, humorous and deflective enough and the author worked with what he was given and created his own harry styles. i think he knows how to blur the lines between harry’s quotes and his own perception/imagination and how to make it a compelling read for a rolling stone reader. if you’re the nitpicky kind, like us, you quickly find a disconnect between harry’s words and careful phrasing and his embellishments (i.e. the quote about compartmentalising his private/work life vs the whole paragraph about taylor swift).
that said, i think harry was portrayed very positively to someone who is interested in getting to know him as a solo artist. he clearly loves his fans, he doesn’t have a bad word to say about one direction, he is quirky and unique. i could have done without the ben winston und ~relationships part (because it was factually incorrect and i don’t like ben or taylor) but that’s me - a one direction fan who knows these things intrinsically. it’s also important to keep in mind that he is still in the closet, as has been discussed extensively today. and for someone who has fully expected harry to actively stunt again i’m really very pleased (for lack of better word) we’re ‘only’ getting all these rehashed stories simply because people outside of the fandom vaguely know about them but that have lost actual relevancy a long time ago.
prompt!(after hawkmoth is defeated) Chat confesses to ladybug and she says no to him. since hawkmoth is defeated and he thinks ladybug hates him. he doesnt go out as chat anymore. He "gets over" ladybug and dates/marrys mari. on their wedding day she tells him that she is ladybug. mari talks about how she misses chat and adrien gets really mad and it some hows leads to adrien saying to mari "I HAVEN'T USED THAT NAME IN YEARS" and mari is just like oh shit
Thank you for the prompt anon! Also…. did you ust ask me to use a meme in a reveal? Anyway this is a meme reveal.
Marinette rushed into the room, closing the door as fast as she could without ruining her dress. She didn’t expect to spend her wedding day like this. She glances up, noticing her future husband looking at her curiously. She better start explaining before he gets another idea of her wanting to call off the wedding out of silly reasons.
(Seriously, the last time he thought she will break up with him and cancel the wedding cause he picked the wrong appetizer.)
“Adrien, I really need to tell you something.”
His green eyes grew bigger and the curiosity turned to fear. Rushing to like side Adrien, tangled his hands in a pleading gesture. “Please, don’t say you aren’t going to marry me anymore. I promise I will be better. I won’t eat the last tarts in the fridge anymore. I won’t use the last lavender bath bomb, I won’t play with your yarns again!”
Marinette rolled her eyes. God, her husband to be was such a bridezilla. She grabbed his hands and squeezed reassuringly.
“I’m not leaving you, Adrien. But I have to confess something. Something that I should have done a long time ago. I’m sorry I never told you.”
Adrien blinked. “You don’t think my ass is cute. That’s it, isn’t it?” a normal person wouldn’t look so heartbroken over being told their ass isn’t cute, but then again, Adrien wasn’t exactly the picture under the definition of normal person.
“I think your ass is very cute and sexy, but this isn’t it.” Marinette took a deep breath.
Telling your soon to be husband that you were a superhero is hard enough, but telling him you also miss your partner who happened to be a really loyal dork in a cat suit… yeah, it just became harder. But Adrien was the love of her life and she knew he’d understand the fact that she wished her old partner would be at the wedding and her sadness over the fact that he wasn’t. He hadn’t seen him in years and missed him terribly.
“Adrien, what I want to say is that I was Ladybug.” Adrien simply stared at her with wide eyes and a slack jaw. “I’m so sorry I didn’t tell you! And it kills me cause I miss Chat Noir and I wished he was here too, cause he had been such a good friend and I’m sorry. Again.”
Adrien seemed to regain some composure and Marinette was happy he was screaming. But when his eyes looked in the distance with that seemed like sadness she began to worry.
“Chat Noir.” he said idly. “I haven’t used that name in years.”
Marinette was outraged. Did that tol shit just meme her on their wedding day? The nerve! And… wait… what did he say? Realization drowned on Marinette.
I was sharing some thoughts with Shady about what I have been feeling about Emma Swan being still cursed, because she posted something resembled and her views are very much like what I had been thinking, coming to the conclusion that Emma hasn’t broken out of the Dark curse. That explains why she’s selfish. I can’t be convinced otherwise.
If we go back last seasons and check her character we can see her last selfless deed was when she sacrificedfor Regina.
Ever after that event Emma hasn’t done anything that wasn’t for her and Hook. All her actions still have the tint of something a Dark One would do to assure their own happy ending at the cost of others (Hook included).
“you don’t act the same anymore, it’s like we don’t even talk. who are you?”
she gives a stare that’s similar to the one my high school english teacher used to give when i didn’t turn in my essay paper.
“you know, i’ve been asking myself the same thing. who am i to you? who are we to us?”
you know the silence that hurts the worst? the one where you both want to talk to each other, but you know that no matter what you say and how you say it, the damage has been done a long time ago. there’s really nothing left to fix.
You opened your eyes, taking a few minutes to let them adjust to the sunlight. Lately, falling asleep while on car rides had become a common thing for you. You looked right to see Jack with his eyes fixed on the road, oblivious to the fact that you had woken up.
You yawned and rubbed your eyes before feeling a hand on your leg “Slept well?” he asked, as he looked briefly at you before giving you a small smile.
“Not bad” you said, looking at the GPS and seeing that you were twenty minutes away from Brighton.
Your best friend Jack had convinced - dragged - you to go to Brighton with him for the weekend. All your other close friends in London were back in their hometowns visiting their families, so you had nothing better to do. You weren’t in the mood to spend a whole weekend at home by yourself, anyway.
You had met Jack’s sister, Anna, before. A few months ago, she had stayed at Jack and Conor’s new apartment for the weekend, and the two of you immediately clicked. She reminded you so much of Jack, it was unreal. His parents, however, were a mystery to you. Conor couldn’t go with you, so at least you hoped Anna wasn’t away at a friend’s house or something: spending the weekend with Jack and his parents would just be too awkward.
But you thought you didn’t have reasons to be nervous about it. You weren’t Jack’s girlfriend, and you didn’t need to pass any kind of test to get his parents’ approval. Yet, it seemed to you as if you were slowly driving to death.
“Is Anna at home?” you eventually asked Jack, who was taking a sip of his fizzy drink.
“Yeah, I believe so” he answered “Why’d you ask?”
You shrugged “Just wanted to see her” you said, which wasn’t exactly a total lie. At least you knew there would be five of you.
Eventually, you pulled into Jack’s parents’ driveway, and you took a long while to admire the outside of his house. It reminded you so much of your own, you kind of wished your parents hadn’t booked that last-minute trip to Spain so you could visit them instead. However, when a young girl exited the house and walked towards your car, a bright smile on her face, your homesickness went away rather quickly.
“Y/N!” she called you as you opened the door to give her a hug. She wrapped her arms around your torso as you rested your chin on her head, a sudden smell of freshly washed hair hitting your nose.
“How are you, girl?” you asked her, mimicking the contagious smile on her face.
“I have so many things to tell you” she said excitedly, and you gave her that look girls gave each other when a juicy topic was about to come up. She nodded, as if she had read your mind, and you laughed.
“Hello Jack, my beloved and ridiculously hot brother, it’s nice to see you too” Jack said, imitating Anna’s voice, as he walked towards you with two bags on his hands.
Anna laughed and went to give her brother a hug “I’ve missed you as well, dickhead” the girl said. Jack rolled his eyes, but kissed the top of her head afterwards. You took your bag from his hands and walked into the Maynard household.
His parents turned out to be more than delighted with your presence. They confessed having watched your YouTube videos, and having burst out laughing more than once. The feeling of awkwardness you thought you’d have earlier, vanished as soon as they both pulled you into a hug.
Jack turned out to be the embarrassed one. As soon as you went upstairs to Anna’s bedroom for a quick catch-up, both of his parents had gone up to him, a suspicious smile on their faces.
“What?” Jack chuckled as he looked up at them from the sofa, his cat purring as he stroked her side.
“We really like Y/N” his mum said, taking a seat next to him. He already knew something was up. He gave them a look “I mean, we already liked her when we saw her on your videos, but she’s even nicer in person”
“Yeah…” Jack said, suspiciously. He let out another nervous laugh “Where are you going with his?” The silly smile on his face couldn’t go away. Whenever someone talked about you, his features immediately softened, and his lips curved up in a not so subtle smile.
“We are just saying” his dad spoke, his hands inside his pockets. Jack could tell he was nervous, because Conor did the exact same thing when something was on his mind “That she’s a really good influence for you. She seems sweet and down-to-eart, that’s all”
The cat jumped off the sofa, making Jack cross his arms “I’m…I’m glad you like her” Jack felt uncomfortable. Although you weren’t his girlfriend, you were the first girl Jack had ever brought home, friends and all. His parents were rather surprised when they saw you two got along so well, remaining just friends up to that day. Because for them, it was so obvious that their little boy had more than friendly feelings towards you, and they were surprised he hadn’t made a move yet.
“We do” his mum said, nodding happily “So, does she have a boyfriend or something?” she asked, trying to sound cool and casual, but she failed.
“Mum, I know where you’re going” Jack said, not being able to supress a laugh “Just drop it”
She gave her husband a knowing look. He nodded “Jack” he said “It’s fine if you like her, buddy. Your mum and I started off as good friends as well, it’s okay to admit it”
Jack’s heart skipped a beat, and he stood up abruptly “I’m going for a walk” he said, ready to leave, when his dad grabbed his arm “Buddy” his voice was friendly, yet firm. Jack stopped on his tracks.
He didn’t want to talk about it with his parents. Y/N was the first girl he had ever fallen for, and he was scared. He was sure that if he kept telling himself that he didn’t lilke her like that, his feelings would go away. But love didn’t work like that.
He turned his head to look at his parents, and after a long silence, he spoke again “I’m afraid I’d hurt her if I tell her” it came out as rather a whisper, but his parents heard him perfectly.
His mum immediately pulled him into a hug, rubbing his back “Don’t be silly, Jack, please” she said, feeling the sadness on her son’s voice “Don’t you see how happy you make her?”
“I make her happy as a friend” Jack kept his voice low in case Anna and you decided to come downstairs “I’ve never had a girlfriend, I’m not good with feelings, I-”
“But there must be a reason why you like this girl so much, more than any other” his dad interrupted him.
At that moment, Jack didn’t stop to think. He poured his feelings right there, in front of his parents, in a way he thought he’d never be able to do “I love how she’s so laid-back and crazy, yet she knows when to be serious” he blurted out “She’s also really funny, there has not been a day she hasn’t made me laugh. She’s sensible, and she takes care of me when I’m sick, which happens like, every day” he chuckled. His eyes were fixed on the floor “I don’t know, I just think I don’t deserve her, like, I’d just break her heart because I’m a fucking idiot”
“You don’t sound like an idiot when you talk about her” his mum said, grabbing his hand “Jack, the fact that you’ve never cared about a girl enough to stick with her doesn’t mean you’ll never be able to do it”
“In fact, you’ve done it already” his father added.
“Do you really think you’d hurt her?” his mum asked him “Because Conor told me not long ago that you almost got into a fist fight with a random guy at a club because he was all over her”
Jack frowned “He told you?”
“It doesn’t matter, baby” his mum said, shaking her head “What matters is you look after her, and that’s no behaviour for someone who’d only hurt her if he’s with her”
Jack stayed silent for a moment, then nodded his head. His eyes were fixed on the floor again, too embarrassed by the topic to look at his parents “I like taking care of her” he said, almost whispering “And I’ve never felt that before for anyone”
His dad went up to him and clapped his back. There was no denying Jack was growing up, and his parents were glad it was because of such a lovely, kind-hearted girl “Why don’t you take her out for dinner tonight?” he suggested.
Suddenly, Anna and you irrumpted into the room, stopping abruptly at the sight of Jack with his parents “Did we interrupt something?” Anna asked, as she wasn’t used to see her brother looking so puppy-like. Soft eyes were uncommon for Jack, or so she thought.
“No, it’s fine, sweetheart” her mum said, smiling brightly at both of you “We were just catching up”
“We were as well” Anna said, turning her head to look at you. She winked “I was just about to ask Y/N when she was marrying Jack” she joked, making you blush.
“Anna, don’t be rude” her dad said, but he couldn’t deny he was amused by the situation.
“It’s not like we were gonna invite you anyway” Jack spoke, putting an arm casually around your shoulders. He was back to his own sassy self again. Anna stuck her tongue at her brother before following her parents’ track to the kitchen area.
You then felt Jack’s lips pressed against the side of your head, a huge comfort speading inside your body. You loved when he did that “Wanna go out for dinner tonight?” he asked you, catching you off-guard “Just you and me”
You looked up at him, a small smile forming on your lips “Sounds great”
Anna entered the living room again, coughing as she walked past you “Wedding” she said after fakingly clearing her voice. Jack extended an arm to push her, and she ran away, laughing uncontrollably.
“You’re not allowed to be the godmother to our children either”
“And they’ll be bloody gorgeous” you added, making Jack push you playfully as well.
“They’ll just be weird if you’re their mum” Jack joked.
“You’ll love them anyways” you teased back.
“I love anything that has to do with you” he said, pulling you in for a hug.
“You’re stupid” you said, your head resting on his pounding chest.
“Shut up, Mrs. Maynard”
“What makes you think I’m taking your last name?”
“You love me way too much?” you hit him again. He grabbed your hands and put them around his neck. He planted a soft kiss on the tip of your nose
You smiled softly, still not used to all the things that boy made you feel “Maybe I do”
on the may 15th fansign, mental health, darkness, and hope
15, 2015, during 화양연화 Pt. 1 I went to BTS’ fansign at Sinchon and had a
conversation with Namjoon that I, at the time, chose not to reveal for personal
reasons. at that time, because of that decision, there were a lot of people who
criticized me—people accused me of saying something mean to him, accused me of
hiding some secret relationship between us, called me a slut, etc. I didn’t say
anything about it at the time because it seemed pointless, but now that 화양연화 has come to an
end for real, and following the release of YOU NEVER WALK ALONE—plus, the
upcoming 2 year anniversary of this extremely fateful conversation (lol)—I have
decided to write about it, if only to explain a little of why I feel such a
connection to the concept and so people will understand why I kept it private
for so long.
I just want to go ahead and give
people some warning: it’s not only a post about BTS. it’s a post about my life,
and it contains a lot of sensitive material, like self-harm, suicidal ideation,
and drug use. please bear that in mind if you decide to read it, I don’t want
anyone to be upset by that content.
I support trans people and have done from the get go, I’m not trans but at the same time I do care, it’s just the decent thing to do to care. I call out the hypocrisy in the fucking moron Caitlyn Jenner because she was pretty vocal about how gay people are practically unnatural and she’s very traditional and marriage is supposed to between a man and a woman.
Now that she’s under the impression she may not be able to use the bathroom of her choice, suddenly she’s angry, isn’t that traditional though by the logic you applied not long ago?
I really detest her because it’s the definition of privilege to only now care.
You’re not an advocate to the LGBT community, you care only about yourself…
I would consider a straight person who’s openly supportive and caring about gay rights as more part of the LGBTQ community than Caitlyn, she made her bed, and it’s sad because I was supportive of her and her attitude is disappointing.
This is here by lore and theories from two fans of Markiplier and Jacksepticeye and means no harm by what we write. This is simply fun, nor is anything really cannon unless already stated. We don’t want to get into debates or say these characters could be anyway shape or form real. We adore and love these youtubers and would never want to make them unhappy or uncomfortable. Thank you and here is our findings. -B
-Mark made a contract with Dark when he first started youtube (like back in 2011)
-Dark would allow him to gain love and support and gain the ability to make the effect in the world he wanted too, with the rule that Dark could periodically take over Mark’s body (and basically just exist latently inside Mark)
-Eventually Mark just kind of went into denial that Dark was real because Dark rarely showed up (except for the few times that Mark doesn’t really remember much because Dark took over the vessel and Mark’s consciousness was just kind of knocked unconscious) (this having similar ideology to when someone with split personalities ‘falls asleep’ or ‘loses time’)
-So Mark started laughing at the idea that Dark was real, and was greatly amused by the fanbase
-But Dark wasn’t pleased…….
-He wanted his share of the bargain, and he was trying to find an opening when he could gain control of the vessel
-Then the fanbase discovered Anti (translation: “created” Anti)
-Dark was told by the greater demons to try to contain Anti, but he didn’t find it that easy…
-Dark is a much older demon than Anti, having come into existence a very long time ago, far before Mark ever made a contract with him
-Also his real name isn’t Dark. That’s just the nickname he adopted because of the fanbase
-Dark has a fun time deciding what his appearance will be. While he appreciates the appeal of nicely done up suits and ties, and he really enjoys looking nice, he also does enjoy dressing up more “punk” I suppose (especially because when he rips the sleeves off Mark’s shirts it pisses Mark off and that’s so much fun)
-Dark has his own personality, own style, but has caught up with the times. This then creating his best advantage when he puts himself in front of an audience.
-During the “Date with Markiplier” video, Dark took over Mark’s body finally after a very long time of staying silent and inside, not only because Anti was starting to become more active, but also because he saw it as a brilliant opportunity to completely win over the vessel from Mark and get his side of the bargain
-This created the idea of ‘Dark’ into the cannon for the fanbase.
-Dark has a tendency to use Mark’s voice against him, and against the people around him. Everyone knows Mark’s voice is really nice and really attractive, but when Dark uses it for his own uses, it’s so much worse, and because it looks like Mark, no one really understands why Mark is suddenly so much more seductive, but it’s just Dark taking advantage of the faculties provided by his host
-Dark is a psychopath. He has no guilt or remorse, no empathy, no emotion, hes extremely narcissistic and is superficially charming, as well as dishonest, manipulative, and reckless - all traits of a psychopath
-Both Anti and Dark are incredible actors this fooling everyone they come into contact with - even fooling people like their family and friends.
-Dark is a sadist, so he will be looking to inflict as much pain as he can on the chosen victim. As whatever will hurt the person the most. This could be rejection, physical pain, or otherwise.
-First you will see it as Mark, our lovable doof and nothing will seem abnormal. Only when he is tired of using the host will he become his own entity. WIth the knowledge he has gained about the victim will use that against your will.
-Dark is a master manipulator, and has no remorse or guilt for anything he does. He simply enjoys the act of inflicting pain
-Dark has a magnificent way with words, and coupled with Mark’s fantastic voice, it’s hard to say no to him. Really hard. If he tells you to sit, you sit. If he tells you to kneel at his feet, you do it. If he tells you to kill yourself, you find a cliff and jump. It’s almost impossible to say no to him, no matter what he asks for. His words are sweet whispers in your ears telling you that if you just give yourself over to him the pain will end. But it never does
-Anti was just the idea of a demonic figure, but the fanbases sudden obsession with him slowly made him grow into an actual creature with a large amount of malicious intent
-When he fully became real, that’s when shit hit the fan
-Anti is crazy and angry and out for blood, and he won’t stop until he gets his quota (and who knows how much that is)
- Anti being based around Jack, he has his qualities since the fanbase had to have a vessel when creating up this creature.
- These qualities are more superficial than anything, like jacks green hair or bone structure. His laugh and over chaotic personality.
-While Jack stands for believing in yourself and being who you are, Anti would do anything for his victims to be shocked and taken back and scared with his existence. Also taking Jack’s worst qualities like his self doubt Anti will use this to make others feel bad this acting as a lure when talking to victims.
-Whereas Dark has a (mostly) consensual contract with Mark, Anti has nothing of the sort with Jack. Since Anti was created from Jack, he has no idea the demon is in him, and Anti is thrilled by this
-It means he can cause so much more havoc (such as making Jack hurt himself or others and then let Jack take back over the vessel with no memory of what the hell happened)
-This is why Dark has a 3d appearance when he takes over his vessel, whereas Anti is more glitchy - because he has no consent to take over Jack’s body, and so the two are fighting for control of the vessel
-We as the viewers see this as glitching or 3-D as that is what we has humans can relate this too. These are youtubers so it makes sense to the brain that they would look in a way related to technology. It’s also the only way our brains can really understand the real way they look, as human minds can’t handle that kind of eldritch thing
-Anti is a sociopath. He’s a pervasive liar, he’s physically aggressive, has no regard for his or others safety, and also has no remorse - all traits of a sociopath
-Anti loves to cause pain, but he’s also obsessed with inflicting pain on himself more than anything else. He’s very masochistic, and thus makes a perfect partner in crime to Dark, the opposite to him
-Anti blames other people for his own faults, mistakes and actions, like when he blamed the viewers for Jack’s death in his halloween video. This being shown as him killing the prized possesion of the fanbase, Jack.
-Anti has no regard for consequences, and believes he can get away with anything. He didn’t really kill Jack, but because the fanbase saw him appear to do so, he caused as much pain as he could, which he loves to do
-Markiplier seals a contract with the demon later to become known as Dark
-Markiplier starts his first channel, Markiplier
-Markiplier’s first channel is cut off from ad revenue, and thus gets canceled
-Markiplier starts his second channel, MarkiplierGAME
-Markiplier uploads the video “don’t blink” on June 19th, 2012, the first recorded (and canon appearance of the creature known as “Darkiplier”
-Markiplier uploads the video “don’t move” on July 4th, the second recorded (and canon) appearance of Darkiplier. This marks the first time Dark uses the black and white effect
-The fandom starts to notice Dark’s presence and creates a separate persona of Markiplier named Darkiplier as Mark continues to upload videos where he stares into the camera and just generally acts creepy
-The October of Terror Livestreams of 2012 start, where multiple appearances of Dark are recorded
-Markiplier uploads the video titled “Mr Kitty Saves the World” on July 23rd, 2013. A little over halfway through the video, it seems to glitch out, and Darkiplier’s face shows up on screen, with the words “THANK YOU” being heard through a distorted filter. Then the video loops back to the beginning, signifying the first time Dark uses looping as an effect. Mark also starts this episode by mentioning that he’s been having nightmares and seeing things out of the corners of his eyes
-Markiplier uploads the video titled “Error #53” on the same day as “Mr Kitty Saves the World” July 23rd, 2013. The “game” he’s playing seems to be riddled with glitches and problems, but he just brushes it off as nothing much, until near the end when everything seems to glitch out and Mark’s webcam disappears
-Just five days later, Markiplier uploads the episode titled “Raspy Hill”, and a little over halfway through this video, it glitches out once again, and the gameplay is replaced by clips from the gameplay with what we think is Mark’s voice over it (but what may actually be Mark being influenced by Dark) saying things like “Lately I haven’t been feeling like…myself” and “But it’s okay, because you’re here now. Here…you’ll be safe”
-Markiplier has another October of Terror Livestream in 2013, where Dark makes a couple of appearances
-Markiplier uploads “Jumpscare Friends” on May 12, 2014, where Dark seems to take over his body by the end, gaining control of the vessel through Mark’s heightened fear senses. This also shows that Dark can influence others around him, causing the others around Mark to make him anxious and frightened
-Markiplier uploads a video titled “The Way Too Serious Dance” on April 6th, 2015, where he claims that the dance he does can summon Darkiplier. This may only be Mark poking fun at the character the fanbase has created, but by this point Mark has completely gone into denial about the fact that Dark is real
-Markiplier uploads a video titled “Surgeon Simulator IN REAL LIFE” on May 10th, 2016, where by the end it’s shown that Mark is manipulating Matt into cutting Ryan apart, like on the game Surgeon Simulator. This is likely just a sketch, and not an actual appearance of Dark, but it’s noteworthy nonetheless
-Later that year, on August 14th, Markiplier uploaded a video titled “relax”, which features Darkiplier as a prominent figure who attacks Mark in the pool as he’s thanking the audience for 14 million subscribers. This likely isn’t an actual appearance from Dark, but is Mark acknowledging the “angsty, emo” persona the fanbase has by now made Dark out to be. At this point Mark believes that Dark doesn’t truly exist, more parodying the idea.
-On February 14th of 2017, Markiplier uploaded a video titled “A Date With Markiplier”, which seems to simply be a pick your own adventure style video with multiple endings, but quickly becomes more than that when Darkiplier shows up physically and clearly for pretty much the first time. He takes over Mark’s body in “HORROR” and talks directly to the viewers for a long period of time, talking about how he’s been cast aside (both by Mark himself as well as by the heightened presence of Anti in the dual fanbase’s mind), as well as talking about how he can give us more choices than Mark can (despite the fact that in reality, he only gives us one choice - the other three are links to his older appearances: don’t blink, don’t move, and relax). In the video titled “FREEDOM!” Mark once again appears and fights Dark (although Mark here is actually Tyler in a Mark mask but let’s not get too meta). In the end, a gun is dropped and we as the player are given the option of who to shoot. If the dialogue of the two Mark’s is actually listened too, it’s pretty clear which Mark is real. While Dark says things like “Kill him! He needs to die!” and “He’s going to hurt a lot of people!”, Mark says “You can’t trust him!” and “He’s got–he has weird eyes!” The statement about the eyes especially stands out, as Dark is often depicted as having strange dark eyes, and also because Mark says things like that. He’s a goof, he cares about us and would do anything to save everyone, whereas Dark merely wants Mark taken care of so he can control the body. When you shoot one, the other Mark takes control, and you get ice cream (vanilla if you killed Dark, chocolate if you killed Mark). If you killed Mark, you look down at the ice cream, and when you look back up the screen glitches, and Dark appears, telling us we made the wrong choice, and that we’ll be there with him forever. If you kill Dark, you look down at the ice cream and the screen still glitches, but when you look back up and it’s still Mark, implying that Dark is still in there, but is weakened and has no control.
-If you and Mark get caught by the chef in the date, and then you escape and decide to stick together, if you decide to try and exit, Dark glitches into frame briefly before suddenly you and Mark are transported back in time to when you were still in the cell, showing off his ability to loop time, and also showing that there is no escape, no exit…unless you call upon Wilferd Warfstache, which we won’t get into here
-So far this is the last appearance of Dark, and his biggest appearance so far
(AS WE SAID DARKIPLIER HAS BEEN AROUND LONGER THAN ANTISEPTICEYE SO HAS A LONGER HISTORY!)
-Jacksepticeye uploads a video titled “SOMETHING DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT | Five Nights At Freddy’s Sister Location #1” upon this at the end and throughout makes the video ‘glitch’.
-Through the whole month ending in his halloween video you will see ‘glitches’ with Anti peeking through in various poses and doing various things.
-Some of these include stabbing Jack, smiling into the camera, or killing himself even. Instilling that he is a masochist.
-Becoming more and more consistent is the noticing quality that Anti has been taking over Jack’s social media through the month.
-On Halloween Anti makes Jack make a pumpkin carving video and slowly interrupts him with sounds around what we know as his house.
-And mainly ¾ths the way through the video gets a green and grainy texture and Anti finds control of the vessel.
-Shouting on about how Jack is weak and Anti is ‘in charge’, that his fanbase ‘watched it happen’, blaming us and saying that ‘we could have saved him’, all while slitting Jack’s throat with the carving knife.
-Only the next day we see what we know as Jack to clean up and identify as him being Anti and then putting him in the cannon.
Jack doing other voice over work for other channels this being the unknowing creation of what will be AntisepticEye.
-Clips of Jack/Anti laughing causes the fanbase to doubt that there isn’t another person there. (Not cannon, but I like to think it is~B)
-So with these extra bits for other peoples videos we start to truly see the chaotic tendencies of Anti
-Between the next appearance of Dark, Felix and a couple other youtubers do a long 7 hour livestream for christmas Mark and Jack both taking part. Theory being this is when Dark got Anti undercontrol.
-This being only 2 months till the next appearance of darkiplier. (see above)
-Once Darkiplier appeared, Anti (in a response to a question on tumblr) called him a “cheap imitator”
-Jack also began playing the game “Detention” around that time, and throughout every episode of Detention there has been some appearance of Anti
-The last episode of Detention was #4, titled “BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS”. In the description there was Zalgo script spelling out the words “BETRAYAL” “NEGLECT” and “MISTAKE”. This may be a reference to us betraying him by paying attention to Dark’s appearance, or it could be a reference to us betraying Jack and allowing him to die (as Anti claimed in the pumpkin carving video)
Prompted from the screenshot of that cop on Tinder with the bio: “Ever shouted Fuck the Police? Well, here’s your chance.”
Derek shut the door behind him with a sigh and sat down on the floor, stretching his legs out in front of him. He hated parties, and he was pissed that Laura had dragged him to the New Year’s Eve one she was hosting at her apartment. She did a really good guilt trip, though, so Derek was there. And now, he was curious how long it would take her to realize that he was hiding in her closet. He was hoping for at least a 20-minute break away from the endless small talk.
He pulled out his phone and swiped idly through the app screens, hovering his thumb over the little flame icon. Laura had created a Tinder account for him a few weeks ago—very much against his wishes—but he’d only been on it a couple times, and he’d never swiped right for anyone. He’d never really done the online dating thing; it just hadn’t really appealed to him. It seemed to encourage quick decisions based just on someone’s looks, and well…Derek had enough of that already.
He was bored, though, so he opened the app and immediately swiped left, wincing at the cheesy shirtless mirror shot of the first guy that popped up. Derek swiped left again, for a girl whose bio just said NO DRAMA, and then couldn’t hold in the little snort at the bio of the next guy. “Ever shouted Fuck the Police? Well, here’s your chance.”
Derek’s gaze drifted up to the photo, and he swallowed hard. This guy, Stiles, what kind of name was that, was seriously attractive. He was really working the cop uniform in the first photo, all broad smile and bright eyes. Probably taken at the pride parade, if the crowd behind him and the rainbow flag were any indication.
Derek swiped through the rest of the pictures—one of him with a dog, one of him shirtless on a beach, one of him playing what looked like a pickup baseball game—and audibly exhaled. He was definitely Derek’s type, tall and lean with broad shoulders. Before he could talk himself out of it, he swiped right. The app notified him of a match, and Derek couldn’t stop the little inward preen at the thought of this guy swiping right on him, too.
He ran with this foreign streak of courage and tapped the message button.
That is the worst pick-up line I’ve ever heard.
Derek had no idea what the typical messaging etiquette was on Tinder, but Stiles replied just a minute later.
We have been getting a lot of questions about how far we are with the game, so I figured it was time for a little sit-down.
First things first, we have officially started play testing our engine. This has turned out about exactly as one would think.
School, real life, new employment opportunities, a few engagements/marriages, enough drama to entertain an army of stay at home parents, and just a gosh darn plethora of other things have done their best to sink this glorious project. I won’t lie and say that it has been easy. When we started this project so long ago, nobody really had any idea what they were doing. Now, thankfully, we have the experience to admit that we don’t know what we are doing.
The predictable result of all of this is that the project has definitely gone slower than anybody in the process has really wanted. This has been compounded with the fact that most of the coveted dating sim projects we have come to love have thrown in the towel.
We here at the UDS would love to take a moment to thank how patient 99% of you have been with us (you know who you are). We are currently working on a way to actually communicate on how the production is going. I’m thinking either a progress page or maybe even weekly patch notes. Who knows.
I do know that by the end of this, I will probably be unable to look at any of these characters in a good light ever again. I just spent 30 minutes trying to figure out why Toriel would disappear instead of laughing.
Hope everybody has a great afternoon, and stay tuned for more news in the near future! I’m diving back in.
(either is fine) I'm graduating college in the spring and it's really overwhelming!!! there are a million things I'm supposed to be doing or have already done, but when I try to start looking at jobs or grad school I feel like I'm drowning & can't get anything done. is there any way to not get so paralyzingly stressed out about the future?
this was so long ago. you’re already in your new POST-GRADUATE life. i hope that you already know what i would have told you, which is: the future is going to come. it comes every day! and even though it’s scary and you can’t know what’s going to happen, like for example maybe you’ll just up and move to chicago even though you’ve literally never even been there, but that’s what life is.
“the future” doesn’t come all at once. it comes slowly, day by day. there isn’t any arbitrary deadline where suddenly The Future Is Here And You Have To Make All Your Decisions At Once. so i think the thing that i do when i’m stressed is i just remind myself: make one decision. just one. the one that’s going to matter right now. decide what to eat for breakfast, and then decide what to eat for lunch, and then decide whether you want to go for a run in the afternoon, and then decide whether or not you’re going to send in an application for grad school when you get home.
listen: you’re going to be fine. i know that school is safe and warm and familiar but the real world can be safe and warm and familiar, too. you’re going to do a great job at being a grown up. you already are. <3
Another update today because I wanna finish this series before deadlines at uni kick in. Three more parts to go after this. Will this end happily for everyone involved?
You arrive back home to the aftermath of Tony Stark’s massacre at Legs. You’re the only thing Bucky has left. Will you stay? (1,756 words; Bucky x Reader; 70′s Bucky Strip Club AU; Angst; Character deaths, language)
We live in the same block of flats but haven’t ever talked and Sunday morning we were both doing the walk of shame and had to stand in the lift together.
The walk of shame.
How you dreaded having to do the embarrassing task. You had been ever so fortunate of having gone so many years without having to do a walk of shame.
Now you found yourself walking to your apartment building at six in the morning. The streets were mostly empty. You were glad that you didn’t have people judging you. You already felt humiliated enough.
The bar that you went to the night before was one that wasn’t too far from your apartment. You went with a couple of your friends to celebrate one of their birthdays when you were approached by a handsome man. One thing led to another and you ended up at his place.
