La scena della coppia di anziani che si vede nel film “Titanic” che sta abbracciata nel letto si basa in realtà su una storia vera. Si chiamavano Ida e Isidor Straus ed entrambi sono morti sul titanic. A Ida era stato offerto un posto su una scialuppa ma rifiutò per stare con il marito. Anche al marito fu offerto un posto, che decise di rifutare per salvare donne e bambini. Ida disse “abbiamo vissuto insieme per molti anni. Dove vai tu, vado io.”

i am currently in a heart attack with ebay.  last night i bid on the wrong size actually. i did the UK size conversion kind of backwards… i actually need a size down.  like, by 3 inches off, and i’m not paying for that much alteration on a dress this fancy. there’s 4 hours left of the bid and i’m waiting anxiously for the seller to contact me back… they stand to make MORE $$ off me actually, because i’m going to be buying shiloh’s dress from them too. tonight, if need be… so even though i like-woah max bidded on the initial dress, and the proper size (buy it now option) is cheaper, they’re still going to make twice as much had i just bought the one, which i’d then have to return.  THIS IS MADDENING. BUT THESE DRESSES COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER PERFECT.

they come with shawls, too, did i mention that???

anonymous asked:

Do you think this will end with a happy ending? Yams said in the guidebook thing that he was going for his original ending but then in his interview before the season he said he didn't want to do anything irresponsible. I really don't understand him but I'd honestly be pretty annoyed if he went with a happy ending.

I wrote something of the same effect a while ago.

From what we’ve seen till the current chapter, there’s too many elements indicating the story won’t end well.

  • Marley and Eldia refusing to negociate, converging progressively into a conflict where one must trample the other.
  • The shifters’ short lifespans barring the main cast from a happy ending.
  • The very first pages, with Eren crying after a grown-up Mikasa tells him “See you later”
  • Eren and Zeke going into opposition, with the former keeping silent about the way to trigger the coordinate and the other keeping silent about his royal blood
  • The titan era of domination coming progressively to an end, combined with the world’s hatred for the people of Ymir

Isayama tries to corner the story into an ending where nobody can escape their eventual fate. When Erwin died, the SL’s claims for saving Humanity have been reduced to a mere laughing stock saved for conversations around a coffee. First by revealing the true face of the remaining members during the serumbowl, where Erwin wasn’t chosen. Then, the Grisha files revealed they were drowning in a glass of water and were played by the First King all along. And just like that, as titans weren’t the main obstacle and the tables in the world were turning, Paradis was cleansed of them, allowing the SL to reach the borders. From this point onwards, Isayama judged it necessary to do an ellipse in the future, while describing things from the Marlean point of view.

That arc doesn’t not only replace temporarily the protags, but it also shows a much more advanced world, where we finally get details about the warriors’ lives, as well as the biggest point of the incomplete volume 23, which is this one:

Anti-titan weaponry destroying the Armored Titan - Ch. 92

Which of course, sparkled news all around the world.

Madz reading the news - Ch. 93

And fear in the hearts of the most aware Eldians.

Udo worrying about Eldians - Ch. 93

Kruger told Grisha Marley’s opinion on their precious Eldian livestock was divided: either they keep them alive to fight for their wars while advancing technologically in the meantime, either they kill them all to avoid the rise of the next Eldian empire. There’s still a chance for the current Founding Titan to restore Eldia’s glory, since anti-titan technology isn’t advanced enough. If they do, it’s going to be a full chaos. In the meantime, Zeke wants to bury the Fritz line with him, so nobody else will use the coordinate ever again, meaning if the power to control titans disappears, Eldians might have a chance to live for a couple of years, but it’s not going to be enough to trample millennias of hatred.

On the other side, Historia refused the power as well, and probably wants the same goal than Zeke. Live her life and bury the Fritz/Reiss line.

And knowing Eren’s personality, he’s going to drag everybody around him in hell, his brother who wanted to rescue him so badly included.


So yeah, that’s the most realistic viewpoint. When Isayama said he doesn’t want to do anything irresponsible, he means giving an ending according to the facts currently presented. The number of people who expect a happy ending is decreasing as more chapters get published every month. And indeed it would be pretty unrealistic expecting everything will end well with the protag surviving, endgame ships, 45k kids, etc… Eren showed he wasn’t different from Grisha, Levi gave up on humanity, Hange is probably fiddled around by Zackly, Zeke and Reiner don’t have long left and Armin probably lost any “pure child” traits he had left.

Oh yeah and Isayama doesn’t play by favorites or fandom’s favorites either. See: Ymir and Erwin. Don’t be surprised if your fave gets an unsatisfying death as well. This is part of the reason why I’m glad he never got published in Jump Magazine.

lariiyunaharu  asked:

Heyyy so I was wondering if you you know any fics where both Levi and Eren are titan shifters? Or where only Levi is one? :)

I think there’s a few more out there, but these are the ones I would recommend! I hope you enjoy.

No Touching
Summary: Levi doesn’t want anyone near his corporal, Eren. He refuses to stand by while those filthy pigs put their hands on Eren!
     Eren wished that Levi wouldn’t make their relationship so very obvious, but it was also one of the reasons why he adored the young cadet.

Don’t Be Afraid
Summary: His ebony hair was nearly unrecognizable due to it being matted and caked with blood. Everything about his face appeared to be frozen in fear, except for his mouth. It was twisted in a cruel, animalistic grin. His lips were smeared with blood, and flesh was stuck in between his teeth. Whatever this monster was, it wasn’t the Corporal anymore.

The Shift
Summary: The world around Levi finally caves in completely. It’s all disappearing bit by bit, scream by scream right before his eyes and this time even he is not fast enough to save everyone. His only option, only way to stop the world from hurling into an abyss is holding it on his own shoulders, by becoming the very thing he hates, the very thing he needs to destroy.

The Titanic moored at Belfast - probably on April 2nd 1912.

RMS Titanic was designed and constructed at the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland under the supervision of marine architect Alexander Carlisle and chief designer Thomas Andrews.  |  She was 882 feet 9 inches in length and 92 feet in breadth. Her gross tonnage was 46,328 tons. Three propellers were driven by two four-cylinder, triple-expansion, inverted reciprocating steam engines and one low-pressure Parsons turbine. Steam was provided by 25 double-ended and 4 single-ended Scotch-type boilers fired by 159 coal burning furnaces that gave her a theoretical top speed of 23 knots.
