this will be proving a point

Important: The V and Rika Discourse; this needs to stop.

Please read, everyone

Hey guys, I have something important that I’d like to announce:

I think I’m gonna try to..stay a little bit away from Tumblr up until the hype calms down. Opinions can’t be stated freely these days without something going wrong, and nobody can ever just..talk about their different views like adults in a mature manner. Or, people state opinions without any proof or reasoning. Liking characters to spite people, insulting those with different opinions, and it’s all over something you all consider to be a game. @yoosungshoodie made an amazing point which was:

“You all say it’s just a game and that it isn’t serious, but it becomes serious as soon as you’re called out or proved wrong”

That wasn’t their exact words, but that was the general message. I agree with them completely. Everyone’s all talk and what they say is right and you’re wrong but then as soon as someone makes a valid point, NONE of you are willing to accept that and it becomes “IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS LOL IT’S JUST A GAME, CALM DOWN”

Then why did you care so much in the first place?

If you like V, cool, if you like Rika, cool. Like em both? Cool. Don’t like either? Cool. GUYS. It is SERIOUSLY not something you should all be screaming about and starting feuds over and this is getting ridiculous. I like the people who can disagree with me, present their opinions without getting aggressive, and have a conversation with me like a human being. Is it normal to get a little upset? Of course, I tend to. But I don’t sit there and talk to the person like they’re a piece of garbage and I do my best to never word what I say as if it’s 100% fact unless it’s something that has been directly presented to us in the game with only one possibly way to take it.

I was so excited too, it was so exciting to see Mystic Messenger trend again! But no, people who act like children had to ruin the experience. “Oh look at you, you’re insulting people” I’m doing it reasonably. I’m telling you how it is. And nobody ever listens either.
Some of you need to stop with the sticks up your asses and learn that just because it’s your opinion, that doesn’t make it fact. BE OPEN to what others have to say, whether it’s agreeing or disagreeing with you. Don’t just dismiss their ideas because yours are different.

“Hey I disagree with this *insert polite reasoning*”

“Oh wow, that’s really interesting..I didn’t think about it that way”

Funny right? Cause like…hardly anyone ever talks like that. it’s more:

“Wow you fucking skank, it’s all Rika’s fault/it’s all V’s fault *insert childish rambling*”

Here’s what we know, okay? Let me tell you EXACTLY what the V and Rika situation is: None of you are V, none of you are Rika, and none of you are Cheritz. Therefore, none of us know everything and I don’t think any of us ever will and frankly, I hope it stays that way so everyone can just get over this and enjoy the game instead of fighting with all this “iM RIGHT AND YOURE WRONG!” “V DID NOTHING WRONG!” “RIKAS A SNAKE!” or “V USED RIKA AND ITS ALL HIS FAULT!!” “V DID THIS AND THAT AND-”

Guys. STOP. 

Poor Cheritz, man. They have the mature, wonderful, fun fans who just love the game and making friends with others like them.

And then there’s some people. The people who have to shit in the swimming pool. Not even piss in it, but shit in it. The ones who can’t STAND listening to other people’s opinions, whether you’re on V or Rika’s side or on both or not on either, god, I do not care because people from every perspective have and will continue to act like children about this up until they leave the fandom. This is absolutely ridiculous and I’m disappointed in the people who do this in the fandom and make it hard for other people to enjoy it.

That all being said, I’m not leaving. *Unless this somehow gets any worse* But I’ll only be coming back to answer a few asks and maybe shitpost, talk to people, and that’s it. Up until all this chaos is gone, anyway. When everyone calms down, I’ll return to write more. This all has completely diminished my will to write out things and be happy for right now. 

Please spread this message as much as you can guys. Please, whether it’s reblogging or posting something similar in your own words, please just make sure people know that this is getting out of hand.

infinite arent that great tbh

I was going to just delete this and pretend you didn’t have the nerve to send this to me, because I can’t even handle this rn.

But if you think BTS is the first group to come from a small company and find success you are surely mistaken. Woollim’s CEO was very close to going bankrupt and losing his house in order to fund infinite’s music. They were going to disband if Be Mine wasn’t successful. Their entire career was riding on that comeback.

And have you seen them dance? They set the bar for synchronization and knife-like dancing and I will gladly link you to compilations of their choreography to prove my point.

They’re highly respected by their peers. Have you watched any variety show with a member on infinite on it?

They’re always nervous about being in front of them.

Have you seen how idols react to Sunggyu on Singderella?

Yugyeom got so shy dancing to bad Bad with him.

Have you seen how the crowd reacts to groups covering infinite songs?

They sing a long to every single word.

Infinite are an extremely important part of kpop and their songs are classics and will go down as some of the best. The Chaser might be the best kpop song, ever (try to fight me).

While you may think they’re no longer “relevant” because they’ve been around for a very long time, it’s really fucking disrespectful to ignore the path they paved so groups like BTS and others from small companies could even exist.

D.Gray-Man Context Analysis

Let me first start off by saying that THIS IS NOT A THEORY. A theory, by definition, is an idea used to account for a situation or justify a course of action. An analysis, by definition, is the process of separating something into its constituent elements. (So, basically, a theory is putting elements of a subject together to prove/make sense of something, and an analysis is taking one thing and pulling it apart to break down and further understand the contents it contains.) Got it? Okay, good.

The second thing I want to mention is that this particular subject I’m talking about is controversial and I will most likely lose a lot of you in the process. But, I ask you to hear me out and keep an open mind. The point of a literary analysis is to make you think in a way you never have before. It’s a more mature way of reading. Got it? Okay, good.

With that out of the way, the specific scene in D.Gray-Man that I will be talking about is, arguably one of the most iconic moments in D.Gray-Man, when Allen and Tyki truly meet for the first time. (I’m talking about after Suman disperses into a bunch of Tyki’s flesh-eating butterflies moment.) Now, I know what you might be thinking: The context of that moment is pretty straight forward. Tyki was introduced officially in the series as another antagonist, was confirmed he was assigned to kill Allen, Tyki shows Allen what he can do because why not? He’s going to die anyway, he removes his arm, destroys his innocence and puts a hole in his heart because he wants him to die slowly. Sound about right? I think it does; but, what if it’s not? Let’s take the world and logic of D.Gray-Man out of context and then see what we have. A man looms behind a fifteen year old boy in the middle of an isolated forest. The boy doesn’t run away, not like he could, so the man approaches closer. The boy’s in no state to fight back; he wishes he was stronger. As the man talks, he tells him that he doesn’t touch anything unless he wants to touch it. He then proceeds to grab at the boy’s heart. The man then asks the boy, “What if I told myself I wanted to touch you, boy? Without making a cut into your body?” The boy is shocked and grows more anxious. “How do you think that would feel?”  What about now? What does that sound like to you? Answer honestly, because I literally just copied this off of that particular scene in the manga and just removed the names and plot from the story. Does it sound a bit…off? Like, you know and feel something is going to happen, but you know it has nothing to do with murder, but you know it’s equally just as bad, or worse? If you haven’t caught on yet, I’m surprised, because I’m laying it on pretty thick. (That, or you just don’t want to think that what I’m implying is what I’m implying.)

Allen was raped by Tyki.

And this is where you say I’m crazy and disgusting for even relatively thinking like this. Let me re-phrase it then.

Allen was metaphorically raped by Tyki.

I just lost you, didn’t I? Allow me to explain.

In a book called, “How to Read Literature like a College Professor” written by a college professor, there are two chapters entitled, “It’s All About Sex…Unless It’s Sex.” In the first chapter, “It’s All About Sex” he mentions many metaphors in classic literature that so clearly references sex and or sexual desire. (The one he mentions so often in that chapter is a key and a bowl.) In that chapter, he also discusses that not all metaphors for said subject implicate that it was wanted and or legal. (He then proceeds to mention Clockwork Orange.) And that, my friends, is why this thought came to my sister and I’s head. (Yes; after reading that chapter, we both thought of this specific scene from D.Gray-Man.)

So, now you probably see why I thought of the idea in the first place. But, now you’re probably thinking, “Why this specifically? How does that possibly lead to rape, or just sex in general?”  Both are great questions. After all, we clearly see that it wasn’t sexual, right? We see the pictures, it’s a manga after all. However, I would like to point out that Katsura Hoshino has done something like this before. What do you mean? I mean that hiding a deeper meaning under something visually obvious is not that uncommon of her. For example, the first few manga covers, 1 - 7 to be exact, are picture riddles. (You heard me right. She stated so in an interview.) And also, what about that time where she had Allen’s akuma seeing eye become injured, and Allen found himself terrified of the people around him. Because he simply couldn’t see which one was dangerous or not. That in itself is a much deeper, and realistic meaning than it seems at first glance. But now, back to the subject at hand. In the literary world, it isn’t uncommon for authors to hide what’s really happening in context. Like I said in the beginning, it’s highly controversial; so, they make it so that people can make what they want of it, and therefor taking some of that controversy out. Why would that not be the same here?

Let me first start off by saying that Tyki is the Noah of Pleasure. The word has a multitude of meanings, sure, but that also means that all the definitions apply. Including the to give sexual satisfaction to one. Allen says that he is vulnerable and cannot defend for himself in the state that he’s in. Tyki impales him. (Okay, yeah, he has intangibility, but the implication is still there.)  Tyki says that he doesn’t touch anything unless he wants to. (And stating that out of context sounds sexual enough as it is.) The first thing he grabs is Allen’s heart. Sure, it’s literal, I know. But, the heart is a very common symbol in the romance area, even if it’s not wanted. However, this piece right here is the big one. This is the one that makes you think.

Tyki stole, and destroyed, Allen’s innocence.

Take that out of context, and you know what you get? The option to translate innocence into virginity. BOOM. Got you now, don’t I? Good, because we also can’t forget that Tyki wanted Allen to suffer. He didn’t flat out kill him, he left him there in pieces and broken to die slowly and painfully. But, we also can’t forget that when Allen does regain his innocence, his innocence is more protective over him. That says a lot to me. You know what else says a lot to me? The fact that after that Allen considers himself inhuman and just a tool used to be used in the war. Who knows if he thinks that now, but when he was told he couldn’t fight because he still hadn’t regained his innocence he thought that. (Lots of things that could hint towards sexual assault, if you know what I mean.)

Of course, there’s one thing that could very much disprove everything I’ve just said: it’s a manga.

It’s not a regular book where what you read is up to the imagination. The images are given to you so you have a visual of what exactly is happening. That, and the story is mainly told in dialogue. Not exactly narrated by something capable of using metaphors to give a visual; there is a visual.

BUT, more so can be used to FURTHER PROVE THIS. Art can be analyzed just a deeply as words can. Angles play an important role in the visual aspect, as well as the expressions on a characters face, the contrast between the black and white outline, the shading used. They give you what they want you to see. So, what I’m going to do now, is show you pieces of that part of the manga, and you’re going to be thinking of all the things I just told you. Really take into consideration the format of the panels.    

Now, do you see it? Did you just have an OMG moment? Even just taking away just a little bit of the pages gives you a different outlook. The parts where it’s heavily shaded can be interpreted differently. Don’t even get me started on the angles.

Of course, this is DEBATABLE. I’m not saying this is what happened. I’m saying it’s a possibility. But, it really changes the way you think, doesn’t it?

REBLOG IF YOU DONT THINK BEING TRANSGENDER IS A MENTAL ILLNESS

PROVING A POINT TO THE FUCKWAD ON FOX NEWS WHO JUST HAD THOSE FUCKING WORDS COME OUT OF HIS MOUTH

I have to laugh this am.  We were 100% correct. Will in Clovis, seen with Hannah.  Chris stans lose their minds and world order is restored.

But I will give Chris, he did surprise me with his party bus and entourage. Almost like he is trying to prove a point about partying with PR friends.  Equalizing the “crime” once again?  Hmmm…. I have to think maybe.

He certainly has earned spending some time with his friends as the tour winds down. I just find it amusing.

Please, please, PLEASE let this be Zari Tomaz. Please Legends give us the queer Muslim woman all these signs are pointing too.

Please let Sara reaffirming her bisexuality be a storyline with Zari as a lesbian who is a little uncomfortable with bi women, and Sara trying to fake it for a little while as a lesbian - it’s canon she prefers women - but in the end confirming that she is bisexual. She isn’t changing, so take it or leave it.

Yes, it might paint Zari in a slightly negative light for a spell, but I would rather the show tackle biphobia like that than infer it by having Sara date a guy just to prove she’s bi. I feel like most of us would. Both of them learn from it, and their relationship is stronger. Zari proudly announces “my girlfriend isn’t gay, but I am!” and starts correcting people who call them a lesbian couple.

Legends, I am BEGGING you. Think of how many people this would encourage and inspire, as oppose to the basic shipping a het couple would provide. You guys can get away with murder, because you’re so much smaller than the others. This would be such a gorgeous, positive thing.

the thing about chloe not knowing the truth is that the more i think about it the more i am convinced that chloe DOES know. i am pretty certain she knows but she just denies it cause she doesn’t wanna deal with it. she excuses it every chance she gets. she HAS seen his true face, and she has seen his supernatural abilities. she believes in his “mojo.” it’s all there but she turns a blind eye to it.

and with him not showing her i am glad that the show isn’t letting that slide. cause it’s understandable that he is afraid of her reaction, but it’s also unfair to her that he hasn’t fully proved who he is to her, even if he has never really hidden it. 

they’re both in this grey area and i understand both of their points of views but it’s really now time (and i do think it’s the right time) for them to both face the music and all that comes with it. tbh i’m very excited to see how the writers deal with it cause i’m sure it’s gonna be fckn LIT.

Can we talk about these amazing character arcs the 2 girls went through this season?

Andi went from centering her life around helping out a boy she liked to finally realizing that her happiness is more important than any boy

Buffy went from constantly liking to be always right and only caring about beating everyone else to realizing that sometimes it is better to keep good people in your life than to prove a point

Im so proud of both of these girls and the character developments they went through in season 1 alone! From episode 1 to episode 12 they’ve both changed and matured so much!

Match-up? I am mostly a kind person, even though I can seem a little bit cold or mock at first. Sometimes I'm quite cynical. I am INTJ, depressive and I have mild autism. I love art, languages, sweets and cats. I tend to be a coward, because I don’t like challenges and I have a thing for comforting people. I don't like surprises, but I love being isolated from the world. I am often intrigued by grotesque things and I am always tired. (Gender doesn't matter.)

Your match is Underfell!Sans! You’re like two peas in a pod. There’s a lot about your personalities that have matching points, but that’s what makes you two such a good pair. You comfort one another just as much as you need comfort yourselves. He’s knows he’s not the best Monster out there, & just having you around makes him feel like the luckiest guy in the world, so he does his best to prove it to you in little ways. He wants you to know that you can rely on him, & that he wants to be there for you in the same way that you’re there for him.
