true love rules

Love isn’t something you feel. That initial spark isn’t true love at all.

Love isn’t when you feel connected to your partner.

Love is when you stick with your partner when that connection fades and you make things work. It’s about not letting your spark die because things get rough.

Love isn’t about pretending like the other person is perfect.

Love is not caring about their flaws because their flaws compliment your own.

Love isn’t buying someone a gift to make them happy.

Love is about constantly trying to give unconditional support and affection. You don’t have to buy anything to earn someone’s love.

Love isn’t always sunshine and flowers.

Love is sometimes difficult and makes you want to cry in frustration but you stay with them because you can work through it together as you both will work to fix it.

Love isn’t being “ride or die” when someone is unfaithful or abusive.

Love is when those feelings and actions are reciprocated.

Love isn’t a feeling. It is a choice, and a mutual one at that.

Alright but I just noticed the neat parallel between Sven and Romelle and Keith’s parents–and I think it’s a tradition that might carry over to Shiro and Keith, so real quick:

In 80′s Voltron, Romelle gives Sven this knife/dagger for protection. They end up being love interests in the dub. But even that aside, Romelle caring so much about Sven’s safety and wishing him well is kinda seen as a romantic gesture. Real quick, but Romelle is also an alien princess (from Pollux, Altea’s “twin” planet) and Sven is of course human. 

yOU KNOW WHO ELSE THAT SOUNDS LIKE,,,

Yeah, Keith’s alien mom also gave her partner a thematically important knife before parting ways. So, wouldn’t it make sense that, if Keith ended up having a human love interest who was about to head out into danger–that he’d maybe give them the knife before they left? As a sign of good faith and for luck if nothing else; carrying on his mother’s tradition. Considering how important the knife is to Keith, I can see him giving it away as a measure of the depth to his devotion–I’m lending this to you for luck. But you know how important this is to me, so I expect you to come back alive and return it–something like that. 

But now, couldn’t Romelle also appear later as part of the Blade of Marmora, and give Shiro her own knife? Perhaps. But two things–one, Shiro is already associated with Keith’s blade. And two, of all the blades we’ve seen so far, Keith’s is actually the only one that really resembles a dagger, which is what Romelle gave Sven. Antok, Ulaz, Thace, Kolivan, ect–all their blades look different in their deactivated forms. Here’s a good reference showing how unique Keith’s blade is.

Now as for Shiro, the first he hears of Marmora is right when he escapes. 

“The blade of Marmora is with you,” Ulaz says. How fitting then, that it’s a Marmora blade that cuts Shiro free when he crashes back to Earth. On a thematic level, I think this is so much more than just The rebellion is with you. It’s the narrative saying–Don’t worry, Keith will always be there for you. Because, of course it’s Keith’s blade that frees him; of course, Keith is running to his rescue. Like he always does. Of course, out of everyone, it’s Keith and Shiro who keep crashing back together whenever they’re torn apart. It’s like fate.  

Not only has Keith’s blade saved Shiro once already, but Shiro has defended Keith and his right to keep the knife in turn. If Keith is going to pass on his blade at some point like his mother (whether temporarily or not), thematically, I think it’s just a logical conclusion that that person has to be Shiro. After all, I think he’s the only one that would really understand the depth of such a gesture. Because who was there with Keith in the Blade of Marmora, who saw him fight tooth and nail and nearly die for this? Who was the one that took the form of Keith’s greatest hopes and dreams–who did he fear losing the most? Who was the person he most desperately wants to see

Ulaz was right; Shiro does have the backing of the Blade of Marmora–and his fate appears inexorably tied to one blade in particular. That Shiro was there for Keith’s trial, that he witnessed Keith bare his heart and soul and saw himself reflected there–their endurance of the trial binds them together in a way I don’t think anyone else could ever fully grasp. 

And I mean, I think it would speak volumes about Keith’s trust in Shiro if he were to offer the blade to him willingly. After all, a big part of his trial was Shiro trying to force him to give it away.

Seeing Keith give Shiro the knife to safeguard him on a mission before they parted ways would be especially endearing becuase, well–when he does give in during his trial, he only agrees because he’s so afraid of losing Shiro. 

Shiro threatens to abandon him if he doesn’t relent, and so he does. To see the blade offered then as a sign of their bond, to show just how close they are and that this isn’t goodbye forever, that Shiro will still come back–I think that’s just the kind of closure for them I want to see. 

  • me: ok. ok. you have to remember how to do basic math
  • me: okay but lets think about how there are infinitely many infinitesimals just as there are infinitely many infinitely large numbers in the hyperreals... lets spend some time and prove that
  • me: shit fuck i did it again, okay back to remembering how to do basic math
  • me: okay but did you ever stop to think about how cool the hyperreals are
  • me: OKAY BUT I NEED TO STUDY.

“Why am I here? OMG Tony wHY ARE YOU AN A.I.?!! WAIT Why my uniform has a HYDRA LOGO ON iT??!!”

“…Welcome back, Steve.”

-How to fight your evil (boy)friend… and most importantly, how to bring him back to you Lesson 101

OK one day I discover that I have never drawn A.I. Tony and I somehow want to draw a Hydra Cap fix-it (sorta), and apparently my brain decides to mix the two things together so this is it! (And as now Marvel belongs to Disney, so I decide to make good use of the rule “true love always save the day” :D)

I really had a lot of fun drawing this, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :D

Have a wonderful day!!

Fun Fact:

my chemical romance single-handedly created the actual concept of Music this day 13 years ago with their second studio album, three cheers for sweet revenge- did you know?

Sooo, did I love the new DB Super Episode?
HELL YEAH I DID.
So much so that I decided to scrap a little something.Quick sketch with emotion, tho!  
It’s true, I don’t draw that much anymore due to my busy schedule, but 18 IS ADORABLE! I definitely can see something like that happen, at the end of the episode!

K18 Ship is still shipping! <3
It makes me…it makes me want to grab my pencil once again! I would love to! NNNGH!

The Rules of Magic || October 10 2017

In this sparkling prequel we meet sisters Frances and Jet and Vincent, their brother. From the beginning their mother Susanna knew they were unique: Franny with her skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, who could commune with birds; Jet as shy as she is beautiful, who knows what others are thinking, and Vincent so charismatic that he was built for trouble. Susanna needed to set some rules of magic: no walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles and certainly, absolutely, no books about magic.

But the Owens siblings are desperate to uncover who they really are. Each heads down a life-altering course, filled with secrets and truths, devastation and joy, and magic and love. Despite the warning handed down through the family for centuries - Know that for our family, love is a curse - they will all strive to break the rules and find true love.

I’m about to make a wild, extreme and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap and is most often used by assholes. The word “busy” is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you’re going to find is a man who didn’t care enough to call. Remember men are never too busy to get what they want.
