ugh i wish this was real


Or: why I appreciate the newbies on Arrow

*Note: This is a bit of a ramble, but I get very little time on SM lately and have been wanting to put this out for a while. So between tasks I had a few minutes, so here it is.

I was having a discussion with @ireland1733 the other day about (what else?) Arrow. One of the things that came up with her, and I continually see with other fans online, is the marginalization of OTA and the strong push for new characters.

Now I have made no secret of the fact that I love Arrow for Oliver, Diggle, & Felicity. And I have such a soft spot for my fellow STEM geek. LOVING Dark!Felicity so far!

Part 1: A LOT of what I see on the show I have to suspend disbelief because it’s a show inspired by / based on COMIC BOOKS. Not a whole ton of reality is expected. But Arrow is different. Despite some questionable choices made last year that included magic, Arrow has managed to stay well-grounded in their storytelling. But these three are always around. WILL NO ONE EVER PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER? (see Professor McGonagall above)

Part 2: I am not a “and they lived happily-ever-after” girl. I want to see some of the “happily ever after”. If season 3 had been the last season, I’d have been PISSED.

So…onward to season 4 and the sweet wonderfulness of newly discovered bliss.

But as I’ve said before, I still wasn’t satisfied. The domestic life was not fulfilling for Felicity (no more slow cookers), and Oliver was still running - this time from the Green Arrow side of himself. So… they blew it up. IN THE WORST WAY  - but that’s another story.

Fast forward to now. We’re rebuilding (the angst is REAL folks) and it both hurts and feels good at the same time (it’s GOOD angst). Olicity has been shaken to it’s core, but the rebuild has started and the RECONCILIATION IS COMING - I’M SURE OF IT.

Now - to my point. Oliver, Diggle & Felicity are the heart, soul and core of Arrow. But let’s be real. Or as real as we can be. One day (maybe we’ll see it, maybe we won’t) there will be Olicity babies (y’all can debate how many @jbuffyangel - I’m content with one). And maybe another Digglette (I don’t know, maybe a girl this time? I mean, again, I mean - UGH Arrowverse :() But babies take time. Effort. Single-minded focus. Did I say they take time? How are these two beautiful families going to be able to enjoy the lives that they’ve wished for if they never get a break?


So I like the introduction of new characters. Do I miss Thea? ABSOLUTELY (and I’m hoping both that there’s a good explanation for her absence and that she gives EWR her comeuppance). I miss Roy.  But the new BC? Mr. Terrific? Wild Dog? I’m giving them a chance. Because of them, in time, OTA can be sitting on a beach somewhere toasting their friendship and good fortune, watching their children splash around in the surf, knowing Star City is in good hands.

there's more lesbophobia is dear white people than just the lesbian teacher. Coco and Sam are laughing on the bed Sam tells her to stop because "people might think we're scissor sisters" they approach the LGBTQIA union (a white girl) who refers to another girl and says "it would be a real shame if her boyfriend found out where she really goes when she's at the library" lesbian relationship = dirty secret. There's only one gay character in a huge group of student activists in 2017 lmao yeah right

Ugh, I wish I could be surprised but I’m not. Another show failing lesbians, and even more disappointing that it’s a gay man failing lesbians. I wish that if they don’t know how to write gay characters, they could just cut them out entirely and not make it a joke. I’d rather watch the straightest movie in the world than one where every “lesbian” is secretly into men, gay relationships are a dirty secret, and lesbian sex is a joke for straight people.

In defense of “witchcraft aesthetic” posts:

I think a lot of witches feel the draw towards the comfy-cozy cottage brimming with plants, the windowsills full of crystals casting colored light in their shadows, big, spacious altars, smoking cauldrons, and tapestries and wreaths hung in every free space on the wall.

Who, in reality, has the means to have their craft area or workspace that luxurious? Not to say “no one,” because with all of the gorgeous photos floating around, someone obviously does. 

But a lot of us don’t. A lot of us are crammed into tiny living spaces we have to share with families, including pets. Not everyone can afford to make their actual space reflect the way they wish it looked, full of jars and candles and flowers. If you rent or have health issues, burning incense/candles might not be an option for you. If someone doesn’t have understanding family members, having anything “occult” looking hidden in their room could have dangerous consequences, if discovered. 

So maybe the reason these UGH AESTHETIC posts get so much attention in the community, is because… if people can’t have their real witchcraft space look the way they wish, at least they can create a sort of e-space similar to an online shrine.

I’ll keep tagging posts “aesthetic,” cause I know that genuinely sometimes users just aren’t on here for that kind of content. I just wanted to throw these thoughts out there too, though.

Trixya!HS AU. Trixie is a nerdy, girly girl with bows and frills. Katya is a skater chick with scuffed knees and a  Flazéda attitude. When they’re assigned as lab partners, can they discover chemistry together?

Or: She was a sk8er girl. She said see you later girl. She wasn’t good enough for her (or was she?).

[AN: Pink Shrooms aka Squeaky Pink. We’re writing this together but alternating chapters and POVs. Pinky is Trixie’s POV and Squeaky is Katya’s POV. We wanted to write the ending of this chapter based on the actual experience of a friend. The goal was to emulate life it its honest, messy way.]

I’m Happy With Her (Dan x Reader)

Warnings: None

You sit on Dan’s bed, scrolling through the live stream chat on your phone. Dan had just started his live stream, and you weren’t in the mood to be in it but still wanted to be near Dan. You and him had announced your relationship just a week ago and haven’t gotten the chance to see how the fans took it. By your guess, most of them would be really mad at you and saying how your broke Phan, and other crap. 

“Hey Rowan, Mike, Micheal, Avery, Carley, John, Ashley-” You hear Dan say as he reads off of the chat. “Oh the reason I sound different is because I have been sick the past two days.” 

“I told you take the cold medicine before the live stream but you wouldn’t do it,” You tell Dan. 

“Sorry about her, she just doesn’t know when to stop talking,” Dan jokes. 

“Oh sut up Howell,” You say, you grab one of Dan’s pillows and fling it across the room, hitting Dan. 

“Thanks for that Y/N” Dan says with a laugh. He turns back around to continue with his live stream. 

Relationship Goals! You read off of the chat. Some of the fans seemed to be reacting alright, respecting Dan but others were bashing out. For instance you read a comment saying that you don’t deserve Dan and should break up with him. Then again this just general hate. 

“Daaaaaannnnn I’m hungry,” You say. 

“Then get your lazy but up!” Dan jokes again. You squirm off of the bed and walk over, waving at the web camera. 

“Hey guys,” You say. The chat then began to explode with comments about you. 

Aw they are so cute. I ship it!

Why are they even together? 

What about Phan?!

Y/N doesn’t deserve Dan. 

Ugh it’s Y/N

I wish they would break up. 

“This needs to stop it is getting annoying and all of you are being a bunch of twats,” Dan begins. 

“It’s fine Dan,” You tell him. 

“No its not,” Dan replies. “I get that some of you may be mad but telling someone they don’t deserve someone or wishing that they would break up is rude. We are real people, not fictional characters.” 

“I wouldn’t mind being a fictional character though,” You cut in, trying to break the seriousness. 

“Y/N I’m trying to be serious,” Dan says, trying not to laugh. 

“Well you aren’t doing a good job re you?” You reply. 

“I love Y/N alright? She makes me happy, and it still means Phil and I will remain friends. I’m not going anywhere I would never do that to Phil,” Dan says. “So all of you need to just accept that I’m happy with her.” You smile and lean in to kiss Dan on the cheek but he turns his head causing you to kiss his ear. 

“You missed,” Dan says. You smiled again and this time you kissed him on the lips. You then walk out of Dan’s room and into the kitchen.

I apologize in advance for the rant-y-ness of this. Press J if you wanna skip.

I’m not a big anime watcher. I definitely used to be, especially in middle and high school. But for the past four-something years I didn’t watch anything until Osomatsu-san was introduced to me. So know in advance that I’ve only been on Crunchyroll and handful of times and of the nominees in this year’s weird anime awards thing Mob Psycho 100 is the only one I’ve seen.

I’m also aware that it is basically a popularity contest. That’s what I expected and that’s what I got.

THAT BEING SAID. I am more than a little miffed that in any category that had Yuri!!! on Ice it had over three times the votes on the runner up. I can’t say anything on the story or characters. I haven’t seen the show. However I have GOT to talk about the opening and ending categories because I am legitimately frustrated by those.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt. I was like, “Okay, I’m gonna go watch the opening for this. Who knows, maybe it’s really pretty and creative and has really nice animation” *watching* “Okay, watercolors are pretty nice, I’ll give them that. Nicely animated choreography. Not much colors but that’s okay. Okay, they’re skating. More skating. Uh, more skating. Okay, they just reused the same animation right there. Guys. Guys.

I’m sorry. I’m sorry, that does not beat this.

Like. For real, outside of me liking the show for the characters and story and stuff, they did a fantastic job on the opening.

You can watch this a dozen times and STILL find things you never noticed before. And there is so much symbolism.

I mean even if the first part wasn’t as interesting, I’d still promote this just for all the transformation animation at the end.

Then there’s the ending. It’s a smidge typical. Most endings are relaxing and low-key, and that’s what you want at the end of a show. This one’s just Reigen getting ready in the morning.

However, it is animated using paint on glass.

Which for some reason I can’t find gifs of. >>>:[

But yeah, it looks cool as heck. <<< Link because tumblr has failed me on gifs.

Long story short, it’s a popularity contest. I get that. But the folks who worked on mp100 put a lot of effort on making things look smooth and cool and creative when they didn’t have to go that far and I just want to throw some appreciation out there for them, y’know? :(

anonymous asked:

Do you think Shiro has ever woken up from a nightmare with Ulaz hovering over him from concern? But shiro is still reeling from his dreams/ memories of his time in captivity, and just freaks out completely because he recognizes Ulaz's silhouette. He's the one who took his arm away (I mean probably. Right?). And it's so painful. And Ulaz tries to calm him the best he can until Shiro is able to see him clearly, and the panic subsides.

The ship’s hallway went on forever.  Shiro ran, his own breathing echoing in his ear as he tried to reach the door at the end.  That was how he escaped, how he got free and returned home.  But it was so far away, and no matter how hard he tried, he never seemed to get close enough.

A hand grabbed around his arm, and Shiro yanked away.  A Galra soldier stood there in full armor, hand outstretched, claws long and gleaming in the dim purple light.

Shiro tried to keep running, but another hand grabbed on the back of his shirt - the purple, ragged top of his days as a prisoner- and yanked him short.  When he finally turned, there were several of them, huge and looming, faces darkened by the poor lighting but their claws and yellow eyes glimmering.

Struggling hard, Shiro managed to get free, but a hand grabbed onto his ankle.  No matter how hard he kicked, he couldn’t get free.  He was dragged back, fingers (human fingers, all ten) digging into the metal floor as he tried desperately to slow the steady, agonizing drag back.

More hands joined, on his waist, his chest, his arms, his neck, and then finally one over his cheek and covering his mouth.

Shiro screamed, the noise muffled behind the hand.

[VKM Spec] Tackling VKM 9|10

I was encouraged enough by what I saw in VKM 10 to write down my thoughts on what I’m seeing for the story and for VKM 9 and 10 in particular. This post will be slightly different from my previous chapter reviews; I’ll be covering topics of interest in random orders rather than going through the chapters step by step (mostly to avoid revisiting VKM 9 as much as possible). 

For anyone who hasn’t seen the raws or translation (is this even possible at this point?) they can be found here courtesy of @alldempretties​.

I’m still displeased with the direction Yuuki’s character has taken, and I’m not comfortable with Zero and Yuuki’s relationship as it currently stands. However, I am encouraged by Zero’s response to the new status of their relationship, and I see some potential in the new twist on where Aidou’s research is taking him as well as in the broader themes of the timing of VKM 9 &10 in general and Yuuki’s interior monologues about Zero in particular. 

If you’d like to read more, and if you don’t mind a healthy dose of Yuuki criticism, please feel free to read below the cut. (Fair warning: I have no filter in this post. Tread with caution.)

Why do people associate cancer with weakness Yes cancer is emotional and may cry and be moody But I find them to have such endurance/ and real toughness to them

Cancer is literally a Cardinal sign so YES! They have great endurance and an inspiring toughness. That’s normally associated with the rest of the Cardinal signs too (Aries, Libra, and Capricorn). Cancerians are highly emotional, the most emotional sign in the zodiac since they are ruled by the Moon, and the Moon relates to feelings. That’s just the plain reality. And yes, a lot of Cancerians do cry often (not saying EVERY Cancer does, I’m speaking about a good majority though) but I read a beautiful quote the other day, ugh, I wish I could remember who said it or who wrote it. But a writer said that crying is the most powerful and the most beautiful form of expressing how one feels, it transcends words, it is such a moving reaction because crying indicates that your senses are being touched and it’s really meaningful, it just shows that something had genuine meaning for you. Well, that’s just how I feel about it anyway. It’s not weak at all. Quite the opposite, in my opinion. And yeah, Cancerians have mood swings too, but that’s just because they can’t help but pick up on emotional undercurrents; they don’t really control that. Cancer’s moods changes similarly to how the Moon constantly changes. Cancers can be enigmas, I think it is such a blessing to be a Cancer. Cancers don’t let anything stand in their way - contrary to what Tumblr believes, they are so incredibly headstrong and they do speak up for themselves as soon as they’re pushed over the edge or if people threaten their loved ones. I also remember @astrolocherry once saying that the most powerful woman in the world is a Cancer, Angela Merkel, so that’s pretty cool. :^)

Ugh in the last gif where liam is kissing zayn? didn't zayn still have the mic close to his mouth? like I can't see anything but the mic tbh I wish it was brighter and more HD omg

watch it a ton of times and relax your eyes. there’s tongue. z pulls the mic away, grabs the back of liam’s head, and there’s tongue.

you can clearly see the head grasp in this one, and look at the mic move totally out of the way as he pulls liam’s face in.

but let’s be real, a stage ziam kiss isn’t out of character…

or a ziam behind the scenes kiss…

or a ziam pretend doll kiss…

or you know, dry humping…

or grinding…

or possessive grasping…

or rimming innuendo…

"they (the actors) are real life people just like i am, just like you are. they do good stuff, they do bad stuff." THANK YOU FOR THIS WHOLE ANSWER. I wish more ppl in the fandom would think like this. Judging on the characters' actions, that's one thing, but on the actors' who are real ppl and whom we don't even know personally...? That's a whole other deal. Especially, bc as you said, most of them are teenagers. Why is the fandom constantly trying to police what they do, ugh.

Hi, Anon!!!

Tbh I … don’t really involve myself too much with the actors. I don’t blog about them as much as I do their work. I’ll take all my anger and frustration out on fictional characters. Yeah, I acknowledge the actors, I’m thankful, but I keep at an arm’s distance bc … they are their own people. I am my own person. Their personal lives don’t mix with mine, just like mine doesn’t with theirs. I keep that distance. Yeah, its nice to follow them on social media and stuff, but thats it.

They do what they do, I do what I do.

Bucky looked at you a moment longer before meeting Steve’s confused stare, “Nothing, just… I might not make your wedding. I need to take a trip.”

“You WHAT?!” Steve demanded, completely incredulous, his brow furrowed, he narrowed his eyes, looking down at you and then back up at Bucky. Bucky shifted anxiously, wishing to be anywhere but there, so exposed. “Wait, slow down. What the hell is going on?”

You couldn’t handle this for another second. You could barely process your own emotions right now. The weight of Bucky’s were all but burning the skin holding his letter, the words still echoing through your brain. The idea of adding Steve’s pain to yours, that guilt and anger, the very idea was threatening to overtake your thoughts, lungs, legs if you didn’t escape right now. Wriggling free, you begged them both to give you space. You didn’t give Steve a second to ask you why before escaping to your room.

“You’re not going anywhere, Buck,” Steve fired, gripping Bucky’s arm as he’d turned to walk away, “not until you explain to me why my fiancée just came running out of your room in tears!”
