Now I had never drawn Trolls before, but @happyqueenandgrumpydork asked me to draw Poppy and Branch as Nick and Judy with her oc Hope as my oc Waverly ^^ I thought that was really sweet and I hope I did all right :)
His words beat at her ears like the pounding of a drum, and suddenly it was more than Arya could stand. She wanted Riverrun, not Acorn Hall; she wanted her mother and her brother Robb, not Lady Smallwood or some uncle she never knew.
ASoIaF AU: Arya stays with Ravella Smallwood (but keeps trying to get away and find her family) (requested by anonymous)
Anuk Steffen as Arya Stark and Eve Best as Ravella Smallwood (neé Swann)
alpha! bucky screwing you all night really well after you challenged him with: "i bet you can't get me pregnant with your pups after one night" bECAUSE YOU DAMN WELL KNOW HE WOULD TAKE YOU ALL NIGHT AND WOULDN'T STOP UNTIL HE KNEW YOU COULDN'T HANDLE ANOTHER DROP OF HIS CUM 😫
Imagine Jesus and Daryl having a deal. Jesus would teach Daryl how to cook if Daryl brings him the ingredients for what he wants to prepare. The group thinks they are in a relationship but they just spent hours arguing in a Kitchen because “No Daryl, you can’t fry squirrels. It’s gross.”
When someone teases or asks about their relationship they deny it. But no one believes them.
dudes like…… i don’t have a cell phone so therefore i have no idea what tumblr mobile is like, so if i do something that’s inconvenient to mobile users don’t hesitate to slap, yell, roast, or just generally chastise me
IDENTITY PORN STEVETONY IS SO GOOD????? any particular reason why it appeals to you? I love the 'Iron Man learning how Steve feels about Tony' part which becomes IM putting down Tony, which Steve doesn't like, then ~drama, but then ~the reveal :D
I’m 1000000000% here for pining and like……….the whole “they love the IDEA of each other but aren’t actually that compatible” sort of tragic love thing? Ultimately, I ship them in the sense that I think they love each other deeply, intensely, eternally, but…….not unconditionally, because there’s so much history and so many complicating factors between them. So like. Tony has always had a complex love/resentment relationship with Captain America, and Steve loves the parts of Tony that manifest as Iron Man, but when it comes down to the two of them as people, they both sort of burn too hot for the other’s safety and comfort, if that makes sense.
Okay but when it comes to fic I am a HUGE SUCKER for those EXACT “secret vs. superhero identity” shenanigans, ahhhhHHHHHHH
about how marta went from overanalyzing x-men to meta about extent of merlin’s powers.
so, it was already established that my x-men obsession has returned, that much we know, but rewatching and seeing the old movies made me want to point out a couple of things about merlin. see, we have jean grey who’s an extremely powerful mutant and perhaps the only level 5 mutant alive. she has telekinesis, telepathy and her phoenix powers which basically means she can alter the reality to her will, right?
and then i have merlin, and i think if he were a mutant there would probably be no possible class for him, with how powerful he is.
see, i know just fine that magic is obviously different than mutations, but still it makes me consider it for a little longer. because really, when merlin arrives in camelot (he’s eighteen), his powers are still purely instinctual, by the time it all unwraps in the show he’s already extremely powerful (he’s just twenty-eight). and yet it is said he has power he cannot yet conceive. which makes you think that yes, he will be more powerful. even more so, that by the modern times he’s already 1500+ years old. he is so powerful that his magic makes him immortal. as much that he mastered the power over life and death.
now, if we know that and we know he’ll have all the time in the world to develop his skills, let me analyze what he could already do during the young years of his life we already saw in the show. mind you, some of which were accessed through spells, and yet seeing as he is claimed to be the most powerful sorcerer to ever have walked the earth, it’s still the specific abilities he possesses that allow him to do so many things.
keep in mind all of these are canon things he could do just in the show.
telekinesis. one of the first abilities he’s ever had. he mentions he could move objects with his mind before he could talk or walk. a very powerful kind he used from day one to the end of the show for very different purposes (as much just levitating things to flying countless people through the air with blasts of telekinetic energy).
control over elements. it’s also been shown from early on, in various forms, and all four of them. example is simple lighting fires, creating earthquakes or dangerous creation of handy tornados, etc.
control over weather. a little different from the control over elements, but still very valid. could be for example creating fog to cover up, or creating huge ass lightnings (like the one that killed Nimueh or defeated the entire army of Saxons).
slowing down molecules / time. it’s actually the first magical ability that was purely instinctual that was shown on the show. it’s hard to say whether it’s just molecules or the time itself, but it’s i think very close to one another.
telepathy / borderline mind control. seemingly different, but tied together. merlin first started to hear, as well as communicate with other magic users through telepathy. it was a thing yet to develop, but we could later see him using crystals to communicate with arthur for example. plus, he did use his magic to bend will (of arthur’s once, to get him safely out of camelot).
empathy / sensing. he was always very tied to places and magic, as well as being able to sense the magic in places and people. he could also sense spirits or magic cast at people.
healing. he could heal great wounds that were not inflicted by magical creatures (with obvious practice) as well as the effect of poison, some injuries or certain types of magic.
projection / conjuring. it’s a very difficult skill that generally speaks against all the laws of magic (ones we even see in harry potter). merlin himself said no one can make butterflies appear from thin air, and yet we see him do the exact thing much later. it’s basically complete bending of reality and making things with actual body and purpose out of thin air.
energy / energy blasts / bending life and death. he was able to conjure blasts of pure, raw energy (like seen with killing sophia’s father for example), as well as conjuring energy that could kill things already dead or created from pure magical essence (like griffins for example).
shields / defensive magic. he was able to shield himself from many attack from both magical as well as non magical threats, like for example creating magical force protecting him from dragon’s breath. putting barriers around his mind definitely count too.
clairvoyance. this was always more of morgana’s true purpose and merlin wasn’t a seer, but he did have prophetic visions, sometimes dreams. he was also one of the very few creatures able to use crystal of neahtid
which was essentially one of the crystals from crystal cave which allowed him to see the past, the present and the future.
necromancy / mediumship / summoning spirits. all of these appeared, though on yet different level and up to discovering more in the future. necromancy was especially shown when morgana summoned lancelot’s shade and he proved capable of it, and spirit work happened a few times as well, though not always by his hand (but clearly he was capable of both).
transfiguration / shapeshifting. it’s very close to conjuring, however it’s about changing the things that already exist into something else. it was for example turning a statue into an animal or conjuring snakes. but it was also himself turning into his various aliases, like ageing spell with dragoon or turning into the dolma.
dragonlord legacy. this is something inherited from his father and merlin is the last of his kind. he can command dragons and creatures alike, make them rise to life and many other things tied to his kin.
many other abilities. there are plenty of other abilities he had shown, but i can’t possibly name them all. they include things like extremely fast gathering information, very high resilience to things, seeing the path ahead of him, and plenty, plenty other things.
immortality. that alone is a result of being so powerful. the druids called him emrys and it’s his second true name, which means sorcerer cursed with immortality. it means that merlin can die, but never permanently, unless he’s ran through a sword forged in dragon’s breath through the heart. the last sword of that kind (excalibur) he both created and cast away to avalon with king arthur after his death, resulting in him being unable to die and having to wait for centuries for the arrival of new age.
now, there are obviously more abilities there which i failed to mention, and keep in mind that these are just things that he could do while still in the show (up till he was twenty-eight). he will develop his skills over time and become truly the most powerful being, and then truly the last of his kind (as it is canon that magic is dying out from the lands). the only things he cannot do is die, truly bring back the dead to life and move in time.
still, also keep in mind that while merlin is extremely powerful and being called magic itself, while he’s half being of old religion, the other part of him is still human (even if that part of him would cool off over time). there is also no doubt that whichever universe he’d be, it’d force him to hide away, because knowing about such power is asking for trouble. people do seek power and whatever it can bring them and that alone has been a trouble back in the show ; it surely will prove to be in the future too.
87% of Facebook/Twitter right now: I’m not against gay rights, but you can’t just give Captain America a boyfriend. He is a heterosexual™, has had nothing but female love interests, and giving a straight man a boyfriend makes him homosexual. Stop twisting existing characters to fit your gay agenda and make your own!
