usual drama

amazingbeautifulmoonbeams  asked:

I think why people didn't complain about chapter 700 or the hokage one shot because chap 700 was released with 699 and as for the hokage one shot, it's because it was released in a time close to the boruto movie and kishi's interview where he says that he wanted to make a movie where sasuke is a main. Besides many people had other complaints about the ep, not just characters' appearances but it was overall an enjoyable episode.

Okay I’m going to reply once and for all because I don’t enjoy fandom drama. My blog is usually drama free and mostly graphics related. Also I hate repeating myself and wasting time over explaining my point of view to people that aren’t usually willing to listen (such as antis)

anonymous asked:

i'm scared to ask this but what happened in chile today?

I usually don’t discuss drama openly on this blog and will typically ask you guys to personally message me off anon, but this is way too important.

So apparently “fans” were bothering BTS at their hotel (i.e. screaming for them, making lots of noise) and they couldn’t even rest. Then when they left the hotel to try to relax and eat at a restaurant, the fans followed them there… They were again being loud and disturbing the boys. According to @we-breathe-bangtan-sonyeondan, there were videos of someone explaining to these “fans” that “the boys were tired and needed to eat and then to rest for the concert. However, a group of 20-30 people were arguing that they just wanted to see them or greet them. They even said that BTS were artists and that they owed(?) the fans some sort of greeting or recognition. The person tried to explain that there were fans screaming and disturbing BTS all day and that they just wanted to rest, but the “fans” kept demanding some sort of recognition.”

I really cannot stress how ridiculous this situation is. Yes, not all fans are like this, but these fans are the fans BTS were first greeted with upon their arrival to Chile. Imagine how stunned BTS is right now. So called “fans” are not even letting them eat or sleep? Are BTS not humans like us? 

This is not exclusive to Chile, as we all know from Bon Voyage, this happened in Europe as well. Fans chased after BTS, forced them to give signatures, recorded them, followed them to hotels, and many more horrifying things. BTS has no obligation or reason to interact with fans during their “free-time” and that’s that. Imagine if you were on a plane for hours, were tired, jetlagged, hungry, exhausted, and were then greeted with screams, groups of people following you, acting like YOU owed them something. How would you feel? Frustrated? Mad? Irritated? That’s probably exactly what BTS is feeling right now.

I know not all of us are seeing BTS in concert even though they are visiting our countries or cities, but that gives you absolutely no right to treat them the way they were treated today. 

Furthermore, if you guys don’t want to treat BTS like human beings and respect them, don’t call yourself a fan or an ARMY. Also don’t expect BTS to come to your country again and don’t complain if they don’t return.

Besides everything that I have going on the side, I want to raise some awareness about a specific person. 
I am not usually one for drama but when it concerns friends and mutuals I have VERY STRONG FEELINGS on art theft and reposting! Especially when I can help it!!

There was a post floating around here:
https://www.tumblr.com/dashboard/blog/magearchivist/158820265052

I instantly recognized this as Simika’s wonderful artwork and I was irritated to see it on here. Just because you put a tiny source link does not mean it is okay to repost without permission! Unless permission is explicitly given you should. not. do. it.

So I messaged this person, you can see the conversation I had with them. They seemed…… ok? Very formal, but all that did was sugar-coat their really selfish intentions. I ended up speaking with Simika about this, as you can see from the screenshot below, as they are one of my mutuals…. I got clear instructions to ask them to take it down. So I sent the screenshot. This very “formal and polite” person who “takes art theft very seriously” blocked me shortly afterwards. They did not take the post down.

… What to do? I’m furious. I cannot report artwork that isn’t my own and Simika does not know English. If maybe you can send them an ask asking them to take down the artwork… I do not suggest attacking, that is never acceptable, but there is a lesson here as well….. Just because you source does not make it okay to repost….. Especially when the artist says so.

(sigh
it is such a problem, I am frustrated and unsure what to do at this point.

You needed another couple of days away from work. You’ve barely been back from your days off and you’ve already had enough of the drama. SHIELD used to be such a ‘boring’ place to work! That’s what you loved about it, there wasn’t much of the usual office relationship drama. That is until you allowed yourself to fall for Bucky. Everything went downhill from there.

You tried working from home but there was only so much you could do. There were classified data to be examined and SHIELD’s network had extra security software to make sure this information didn’t leak; you couldn’t risk handling that kind of intel outside a secure server. So as much as you wanted to stay in bed in your pyjamas watching Netflix you now had to get up and go to work. Yeah, it was not a prospect you were looking forward to but let’s be honest here – broken heart is not a real injury. You can’t pull a sickie because of that.

I can’t believe he gave those kids alcohol (alas… yes I can) but more importantly I can’t believe Asano missed a great Macbeth opportunity

Seungkwan's nosebleed incident
  • Staff: While preparing for the concert, i heard there was a member who had a nosebleed?
  • Members: Seungkwan...Seungkwan...
  • Seungkwan: When watching dramas, I usually find it amusing when someone has a nosebleed because of how tired they get...
  • Vernon: I thought it was grape juice at first
  • Dokyeom: (laughs)
  • Seungkwan: I was sleeping in the dorm when Hansol suddenly woke me up....There was blood on the floor and he thought it was wine or grape juice..
  • Seungcheol: I heard they went to the bathroom together
  • Vernon: (shaking his head no) Nooo...
  • Seungcheol: What did you do inside?
  • Vernon: (still shaking his head) Noo~ I don't~
  • Seungcheol: You didn't do anything?
  • Dokyeom: 짜식 (These little rascals...)
  • Seungcheol: Seungkwan-ah, How many days had you been with Vernon?
  • Seungkwan: (laughs)
  • Wonwoo: That's a secret
  • Staff: Seungcheol-ah...
  • Dokyeom: How many days had it been since you first met?

  • Dokyeom: The first time they met.....

A summary of recent “A Dog’s Purpose” news:

I don’t usually post drama and I know a lot of people stopped caring after the initial video, but I want to know all the facts and I figured I’d share them for anyone that just wants a summary. So here’s a summary list of updates and some facts so far that were “conveniently” left out of the video:

  • Hercules was trained to jump on one side of the pool, but in the video he was on the other side. He “joyfully” jumped when he was returned to the original spot.
  • There was a scuba diver in the water.
  • There were two jets on opposite sides of the pool with calmer water in between. He briefly went under because he crossed the jet before the diver pushed him up.
  • There are raised platforms under the water.
  • There was a crew of safety people on the side not shown in the video.
  • The producer believes “whomever cut the video and made it appear the dog was in danger and ‘probably sold it for money’ to fulfill’s PETA’s stated agenda of ensuring no animal is ever used on a TV or movie set again.“
  • Lots of people/news questioning why the video wasn’t released for 15 months and why two clips were spliced together
  • A reduced crew was there that day, not the full crew (but not sure why).
  • We don’t know who the 3rd party investigator is.
  • Saturday premier for the movie cancelled.
  • PETA is calling for no animals to ever be used on set and to use CGI instead. Counter arguments say it would be cost-prohibitive. Some are saying the American Humane Association needs to be checked.
  • Two released videos of Hercules from yesterday (since apparently some people think the dog died?) here and here (if second video leads you to a subscription, type in “Watch: ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ star Hercules - USA Today“ on google).

Anyway, at the moment, what I want to see is a statement from the handler/trainer on why he thought forcing Hercules in the water would make him want to jump (instead of reconditioning him on that side of the pool), to see the unedited video, who the 3rd independent party is that’s investigating the situation, and who waited 15 months to release an edited video and why they waited that long (there’s speculation it was PETA).

One news was told when the full investigation by the studio and the production company is over, the unedited video likely will be released to the public.

really done with all these snobby rich white girls at the barn. Yea, you have $250 riding breeches and I have jeans. You also complain every time you get a tiny bit of dust on your precious helmet or riding vest.

I’m here because I enjoy it. Why are you here? You certainly don’t act like you enjoy it. You treat it like a chore. It’s not a chore. It’s a *privilege*.

Ok guys, I usually stay out of dramas likes this, but I think I have to give my two cents now. This is a non-spoilery rant, because I know I have a lot of followers who haven’t watched the latest HTGAWM episode.

The show cast is REALLY diverse, one of the most diverse on TV nowadays. I’m just going to showcase what I mean:

If they killed Annalise or Michaela, they’d have killed a black woman. If they killed Laurel, they’d have killed a latin woman. If Connor, Eve (aka Jean Grey) or Oliver were killed, they’d have killed a LGBT+ character. If they killed Nate or Wes, they’d have killed a black man. So are you trying to say that the only characters that are allowed to be killed are Bonnie, Frank and Asher? Because that’s nonsense.

I’ve called who was under the sheet right in the beginning of season 3, even tho I changed my mind after some events and changed my mind again… because for me, he was the character who had all the arrows pointing at him. I was a fool and fell for the red herrings the show threw at us, but it was there.

This wasn’t about ethnicity, race or sexuality… If anything, this could be about shock value, but the reason this show is so popular is shock value. Same with Grey’s Anatomy, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and most popular shows nowadays.

Of course, you are not obligated to keep watching HTGAWM, it’s your choice as everything else. You have to right to be upset if your fav character died, you have the right to rant on the internet and cry and say the world is unfair.

But, except for the weird bi-phobia this show has, HTGAWM is one of the few shows nowadays that has a great deal of diverse characters and treat them as real people, instead of “the only token black guy”, “the sexy latin girl” and “the funny gay character” we usually are given.

If you really twisted my arm and made me choose an all-time favorite character, not just from FMA, but from anything, I think I would have to choose Lust.

Her development weaves beautifully with the show’s major arcs; unique, but still so connected to the most central themes of the series in spite of her limited interactions with the protagonists. Her quiet, deeply personal journey of self-discovery and internal philosophizing blows the tired trope of “What makes a human?” out of the water and breathes nuance into it. Hers is an arc of intense self-questioning usually only given to male characters, and it revolves heavily around men without ever subtracting from her own agency in the plot.

But writing is only part of the battle in a TV series, and BONES beautifully sells Lust’s shifting demeanor throughout canon through her expressions and body language alone. Pictured above is basically all of this character’s screentime. Comparatively, there isn’t a whole lot, but none of it is wasted, even though the truly head-turning segments of her arc don’t show until the series is already three-fifths over.

Episodes 1-34

Lust is effectively sold to the audience as the femme-fetale and the puppetmaster. Although there are whispers of a person who is in control of the homunculi, we are never given the impression that Lust has no control over the situation. She hides in the shadows, smirks and muses to herself from a distance, plays coy with the humans. This facade cracks only once: when Edward accuses her of being hungry for nothing but power. It is perhaps the first moment of unguarded emotion we see, and it is over as quickly as it begins, leaving use questioning, leaving us wanting more. 

But we aren’t going to get it for another 12 episodes.

Episodes 35-42

The tumult of her character’s journey. We see Lust through her own unguarded eyes and in her own environment rather than through the eyes of other characters. She’s not just showing up to stir the pot when it’s convenient, anymore. From the viewer’s perspective, she starts to remember her human life, but from an in-universe perspective, this first started happening to her two years ago. Beginning with her ruined reunion with Lujon and concluding with her first betrayal of Dante and the subsequent death of Scar, Lust is exploring. She is answering questions about herself, (Where did she come from?) only to be met with harder ones (Who is she, really?). She confronts the only remaining fragments of her past head-on, and it ends in disaster and a fall from grace with the only party she can call an ally. Played by Dante’s intentionally provoking decisions in Lior and desperate for answers and humanity, she throws away her allegiance to the other sins only to lose the spark of hope and connection to the past she has discovered for herself.

Save for Gluttony’s love and undying trust (Gluttony, whom she left behind to pursue her goals), she is now, effectively, completely alone.

Episodes 43-47

Lust breaks slowly, quietly, and with such grace that she finds meaning even in her measly death on an abandoned factory floor at the hands of a confused child. Her final weeks are like the last, no-holds-barred stand of a dwindled army. In a darkly appropriate full circle, she’s dragged from the desert back to Dante with her head hung in defeat. If there could be one added scene in the series, I would want it to be her capture between 42 and 43. There is so much potential for interaction between her and her fellow homunculi in those off screen moments, but we do get a pretty good idea of how it went down simply from body language. Pride and Sloth are quite pleased with themselves. Gluttony is terrified. 

And Lust is in a state of broken silence that never completely leaves her from this point forward.

There are genuine smiles, now, but they’re sad, weighted, and tired. She has dared to lower her walls a hair, only to have them stripped away and exploited. All she has left is a shaky alliance with the Elrics, and we know how well that goes.

Can there ever be dignity in death? It is a debatable question, but Lust comes damn close to it. She has exhausted every option, explored every feeble opportunity for hope beyond her life as an enslaved homunculus, but the cards were stacked against her from the start. She faces death with her memories of humanity and a gentle smile. It may not be a traditional blaze of glory, but it is a transcendence from all that has caused her suffering in her doomed second life. 

She’s free.

So I have relatives visiting for the holidays. Usually they bring more drama and chaos than familial love, BUT this year it’s a lil’ different. Ontop of welcoming a new baby cousin into the family, my Nana stumbled upon the album of my giant/tiny artwork that I keep on my phone. All my GT drawings from way back when I doodled on a phone app to my most recent stuff on my tablet were suddenly up for judgement by folks that I hadn’t disclosed my love for GT to.

 I was so scared that they’d think me as weird, critique my art harshly, or even shame me for drawing something so unusual. It’s one of my worst fears, one that I’ve had so many online friends disclose and share with me. We love this trope so much. It warms our hearts when we’re at our lowest, and we’re lifted even more when we find folks with common interests to share the fluff with. This is why, it can be so frightening, absolutely terrifying when someone outside of this community finds out about our interest in GT. They put you on the spotlight for possible rejection, even ridicule for enjoying something so fantastically abnormal.

… 

 My family’s reaction to my art:

 “Woah, this all came from just you? On the computer?” 

 “Look at all the tiny people! So cute!” 

 “You should make your own line of greeting cards with this!” 

 “Woah, I like the mood in this one. The giant hand in the fog? That’s scary!”

 “This looks like an illustration for a children’s book! Did you really do this!?” 

My current mood:
