what a great relationship they have

anonymous asked:

Okay. I've officially reached the point with Supergirl where I would like to know who will volunteer as tribute to go to the SDCC Supergirl Panel and do whatever people have to do to ask questions, and ask why the show runners decided to put Supergirl in an abusive relationship. I doubt we would get a satisfactory answer, but it might be public enough to get something done... but at great personal risk to the asker, since who knows what Karamel shippers may do.

AIGHT WE NEED A VOLUNTEER

Talking about the last flashback, do you think Silver told Madi about the full extent of Flint's relationship with Thomas? Him mentioning Thomas to Mari threw me off a bit and I don't know if we're supposed to believe that he told her flint's secret or if he just told her that he lost a friend named Thomas or what. I'm loving all your thought-out answers this morning btw, they're making a fab episode even better. And your gifsets of course are killing me. Great job all around 👌🏼

Thank you so much!! :D

(Sorry for the late reply though, I got swept away with the new content)

I have to admit that that line threw me off too. I was surprised and a liiitle bit disappointed at first. At first!!! I was sure Silver would keep that secret because Flint told him that in full confidence, considered him the only person worthy of knowing that information about him because he trusted he wouldn’t use it against him or see him any differently for it. I was sure the reason for Madi’s initial mistrust of Flint was so strong partly because she didn’t know who he was, what he’s lost, and what that war truly meant to him. But considering she did know, this means her trusting Silver, a person she knows little about (considering not even Flint was privy to his life story and they’ve known each other far longer than Silver and Madi have) and not trusting Flint even though she knew he fights for his lost family doesn’t really make sense. She heard about Flint and Silver’s influence in the pirate world, she was told by her father they were both dangerous men, so why did it take her so long to understand him and not Silver?! Why did Flint have to make that extra effort to win her trust? Anyway I went off topic, that’s a discussion for another time and one that can have many interpretations, of course.

I think Silver might not have told her all of it, though. I can’t believe he would give away too much because he’s genuinely sympathetic towards Flint and his tragedies and as much as he trusts Madi not to go around and spread the story or even judge Flint for it, I feel like he’d consider it too private, too intimate to be shared so lightly. If she were to ever learn more about Flint and his relationship with Thomas and Miranda then Flint should be the one to tell her. It’s not Silver’s story to tell and I want to believe he knew that, especially given how long it took Flint to share that piece of his soul with him. However, even if he told her all he knows I don’t think he did any harm by it. I think he just wanted to show her that there is more to Flint than she thinks. That he’s fighting for something far greater and more meaningful than she and the rest of the world are led to believe. That he’s not all about destruction and mayhem, but rather about love because that is the root of Flint’s existence. Perhaps that was what helped her eventually see past the harsh exterior of Flint’s persona and allowed her to truly understand the broken man inside.

Maybe i'm looking to much into it, but why the interest in queer elements?

(In reference to this post.)

The simple and personal answer is that I, myself, am queer. Wanting to see LGBTQIA+ themes and relationships in the media I consume is always something I want to see. Always.

And what makes me particularly vocal about it with YGO (and now Vrains in particular) is because YGO has already proven itself capable of alluding to these themes, if not outright delivering on them. 

But even among the strongest examples of queer relationships and characters In YGO (Judai/Johan, Judai/Yubel, Yusei/Bruno, Yuma/Astral), there’s still a level of ambiguity that allows certain people to write them off. Yubel is Judai’s spirit partner, not the great love of his life. Judai went to travel the world without Johan, so they couldn’t have been a thing. Yusei and Bruno were just good friends. 

Fuck that. Make it clear. Make it Alit falling head-over-heels for both Kotori and Yuma. Make it Astral confessing to Yuma that he loves him. I’m not asking for romance to be at the forefront of Vrains (I actually really, really don’t want that, because romance can get very stale, very fast). But to go even further than Zexal in smashing that ambiguity to pieces? Yes please.

But this isn’t just about what I want. The broader answer to this question is: I want queer elements in YGO (and many other things) for everybody else’s sake. Because representation is important. Because art and media informs us on what’s to be considered socially acceptable. Because queer people being out there and present in the media is a very effective way of combating homophobia. 

And not just any queer relationships/people, but healthy ones. The media in general (and YGO in particular) have gotten better about this, but more still needs to be done. To send the message that we are not sick, or predisposed to anything, or destined to live lives that end in tragedy. This is a critical message that everyone can benefit from, but do you know who benefits the most?

The children that these shows are actually aimed at. Because queer children exist, and shouldn’t have to go through the soul-crushing trauma of thinking (if not outright being told) that being queer is inherently disgusting and heavily sexual and something to be reviled. I went through that, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. One of the best ways to combat this toxic thinking is by showing them examples of the opposite.

TL;DR: Because that’s what I am, and want. Because YGO has done it and can do it again. Because homophobia is still something that needs to be destroyed. And for all the queer kids out there.

It bothers me that we will never get Nooreva and I still don't understand. How is there a straight explanation for their entire relationship in s1. When we eventually get Evilde I will still be bitter it's not Nooreva.

AH FRIEND I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW.

I mean, I love Vilde and I’m sure I’ll love her season and it will be so great to have a lesbian character and a sapphic relationship on Skam, really. I know I will love it.

But also. But also literally Noora was introduced as a love interest, and they flirted ALL S1 AND THERE WERE SCENES IN S2 LIKE THE HOOKUP THING AND THEN EVA CALLS NOORA “NOORAMOR” LIKE WHAT THE FUC WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCKING FUKC

And if Noora got with someone else than fucking Whilemlemle I wouldn’t be so bitter, probs. Like I’m not saying I want her to be a lasbian (I do), but if she got with someone nice, who respected her and all, I’d be like “Ah, lost chances ™” but ultimately I’d be just, idk. Normal about it.

AND INSTEAD WE GOT THAT ABUSIVE MESS @JULIE IM LITERALLY GONNA FIGHT U HANDS OFF MY BABY

Crucial Ingredients for a Great Relationship

1. Shared sense of humour; lots of laughter and fun

2. Little gestures of thoughtfulness

3. Personal space (there needs to be separateness in your togetherness)

4. Having the ability to spend hours together (simply doing routine or humdrum things)

5. Having “fairness and respect” rules in place for when you argue or fight

6. Having an attraction that goes beyond the physical; liking each other, and your personality

7. Believing that your partner has what it takes to live the life they want to live – believing in them always, especially when they’re down

8. Having a relationship that’s built on trust, openness, honesty and faithfulness.

I’m super happy that Yuuri basically confessed his love to Viktor on National Television. But can we consider for a moment one of the deeper aspects of their relationship?

So, before Kenjirou Minami went on he was nervous as hell. And because Yuuri was feeling anxious and unmotivated, Yuuri walked right on past him when Minami looked up to him for encouragement. Viktor was quick to reprimand him, and Yuuri realized Viktor was right. So Yuuri cheered for Minami right before he skated, and Minami skated better because his idol cheered for him.

What’s the point I’m trying to make?

Viktor and Yuuri have such a great relationship because they improve each other.

By coaching Yuuri, Viktor is learning to be less selfish- to give back to the ice skating community. As Yakov said, he didn’t believe Viktor could be a coach because he never thinks of anything but himself. And Viktor not only makes Yuuri a better skater, but a better person.

Between Viktor and Yuuri’s healthy relationship based on improving each other, I think it’s definite that Viktor and Yuuri will make it to the Grand Prix Finals.

me trying to figure out what went through the writers’ heads when they had kara break up with james in episode 1, just to have her play the “will she, won’t she” game just 10 episodes later with a new guy

also me trying to understand why writers keep having other characters BUT the character in the possible relationship talk about how amazing they are together

“it’s so obvious”

also me trying to figure out why they brought a new character to the show, with great potential for an amazing storyline (evil aliens coming for him, is he the prince etc) just to have him reduced to a simple and shallow comic relief/love interest

Sometimes you think surely you’ll never be lucky enough to love again because they were your one great love and you fucked up, or life fucked you up, or you’re not really sure who fucked up but you’re not together anymore so something went so fucking wrong.

Some Facts on Emotional Manipulators

1. They can’t be trusted. No matter what you say, they’ll turn the situation round so they seem like they’re a victim, and have been unfairly judged.

2. They leave you feeling crazy, or mixed up and confused. They’ll twist your words and motives so you feel misunderstood - and they rationalize their actions so you seem unreasonable.

3. They’re great at making you feel guilty or “bad”. Nothing you can do or say is ever right to them. No matter what you try, you know it always will be wrong.

4. They are passive aggressive. They’ll smile to your face and they’ll stab you in the back … and they’ll gladly talk about you … and pass along mean gossip.

5. They have the ability to manipulate the emotional climate in a group. So, if they’re feeling happy, and life is going well, they’re the life of the party and everyone must smile. But when their life is tough then they’ll moan, groan and complain … and they’ll make sure everybody feels miserable as well.

6. They are self-absorbed and a law unto themselves. Life is always by their rules - and everything revolves round them. They’re not accountable - and they will always please themselves.

You know what, Booth and Brennan will always be my #1 otp because they gave me so much as a couple. I mean, I’m not talking about sex or smut because that’s fanfiction material (like you go girl, want to see your fave ship bang on a piano? go and read that !!!! that’s what that website is for) but everything else. The ‘platonic’ aspect of their relationship has always been the best part of their dynamic to me, but they were still able to overcome that phase and be a family. This being said, that original dynamic has never been compromized, not to me at least, because when it comes to the important stuff, Booth and Brennan are still partners first, they are still the people they would give up their life for, they would fight for each other. While the majority of other ships kinda change once they get together. Booth and Brennan never completely changed, so much that people complain because they’d rather have them being romantic the 100% of the time. I don’t. Also, it’s the little things that matter to me, like it might sound stupid, but I find it extremely adorable and precious that Brennan knows Booth by knowing his injuries. Every time something happens, she’s able to compare factures and other stuff to Booth’s. And that’s so IC, that’s something I really want to see because it’s them. And it’s been this way since she first found out about his past in 1x15 and it never changed. She imagined him on that autopsy table in 11x01 by looking at the bones, just like it happened on 12x04 with Aldo and in other many occasions. Brennan saying like I know that because of your brain tumor. She knows his brain scans. YAAAS. Give me this stuff. Give me Booth and Brennan that can’t sleep without each other at night when one of them is struggling with something, give me them talking about taking someone’s life and carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Give me them hurting each other to save each other. They would never cheat on each other or hurt each other because they want to. They only do it because it’s the only way. Yaas. Screw sex, just give me this stuff.

Even+Sana & S4.

Even and Sana - we already how great the prospect of having them two becoming and being 2 really, really great friends is - there’s no doubt in that. They’re a major BROTP.

But, whilst analysing S3 (because that’s what me and @josteninski have been doing all day everyday ever since S3 ended), a few very, very direct hints have pointed out exactly WHY Even and Sana’s friendship should - and could - be explored and be seen on screen in S4. If this was to happen, it’d be breaking down so many stereotypes and so many barriers, just like how Isak and Sana’s friendship did in S3. It’d form such an important relationship in S4 for a focus to be on, just like how at the end of S3, Magnus and Even’s little budding friendship became a focus, which there’s no doubt, will continue on in S4 too. And there’s PLENTY of proof in S3 as to exactly why Even/Sana could very well happen in S4.

  • Let’s start from the end and work our way backwards. The last dialogue that was spoken in the S3 finale began when Isak said this:

There’s very, very specific detailing here. 4 systems of belief are mentioned here: Allah, Jesus, The Theory of Evolution and Parallel Universes. These 4 were MAJOR points of discussion throughout S3, and related back to 3 characters:

Allah = Sana and Even (how so? I’ll explain further down as we go along).
The Theory of Evolution = Sana.
Jesus = Even (the Jesus tshirt, 21:21, Even dressing as God etc) and Isak’s Mum.
Parallel Universes = Even.

From the 3 characters, it’s Even and Sana who relate the most back to these 4 concepts - Sana taking 2, and Even equally taking 2. Even and Sana helped Isak, SO MUCH, in shaping his beliefs in S3. Even did, with making Isak learning to live in the now, and Sana did, by making Isak realise that fear doesn’t come from religion, and she became a guide for Isak to gain that courage to reach out to his Mum.

Everything happens on this show for a reason, for a parallel to occur, to come back full circle. I’ve got no doubt that that dialogue was a small hint, a doorway opening into S4, leading me to believe that one of the major focuses on S4 will be on Even and Sana, as friends, together. 

  • Which brings me nicely to my next point: Even and Sana meeting each other in the finale.

I mean, of course we know they’ve met before. Why did they need to show us this again? Your argument will be “because Sana came to return the 10% drugs to Isak, and Even was stood there, so naturally, it’d happen.” But, honestly? At this point in the season, did it even MATTER anymore if Sana gave Isak the 10% drugs or not? Not really. Isak would have been fine without them. He didn’t demand them back. And Sana’s a smart girl, she would have figured out what to have done with them to dispose of them. So honestly, what was the point of this scene - because there MUST have been a point. 

The point was: For Isak to become a bridge, connecting Even and Sana together. It was the EXACT same with Magnus and Even too. Isak introduced the boys to Even and vice versa, and from all the boys, it was Magnus ONLY that hugged Even. Later on, we’d come to find out that indeed, it was because Magnus understood Even, since Magnus’ Mum was bipolar too. That became a link for Magnus and Even, whose friendship, I’m sure, is gonna continue on in S4. I mean, in the finale, did you see how Magnus took on Even’s advice? Not Isak’s, or Jonas’ or Mahdi’s - he took on Even’s. And it worked for him and Vilde! It’s the EXACT same thing here, with Sana and Even too. Look at the look they both share in the GIF above - that’s a look of pure acknowledgment. Of, “I see you. I know who you are, by name now. And Isak’s our common ground.” Just like how Magnus and Even hugged, this is that, only in the form of appreciative glances here. 

But just like how with Magnus and Even, not only was Isak their common ground, but so was bipolar disorder. With Sana and Even, the common ground isn’t JUST Isak. It’s also: Islam.

  • This brings me very nicely to my next point. Even and Islam. Remember above when I said I’d discuss how Even related back to Isak talking about Allah? Well, here it is:

There’s a REASON why Sonja was made to say this specific dialogue so blatantly. And at first, as a Muslim myself, it just really, REALLY confused me up as to WHY they’d say this. Why would they say Even memorized the Qura’an - in Arabic no less. What does that have to do with anything? In fact, it COULD have been ANYTHING else Even could have done - but no, he chose to memorize the WHOLE Qura’an. He seeked out Islam when he felt like he needed it the most. He turned to Islam. Some may say that it was because, in his state of elevation, he did that. But, he still did it, nonetheless? And learning the Qura’an doesn’t just happen in one day. It takes YEARS. So Even doing this, within a year, even though it’s a very short time to learn the Qura’an, he still must have dedicated MONTHS towards learning it. And he learnt it.

Then, when we have Even calling out Emma on her generalisations about the LGBT+ community, Even uses “not all Muslims are terrorists” as an example to give his point of view. Yes, that is a very “go to” example, but it’s still used here. By Even. And now that we know that Even memorized the Qura’an, at a time when he needed to do a bit of soul searching and finding some answers, all of a sudden, it just makes even more sense? That Even knows about Islam. Even has some level of education about Islam.

And you know who else he has now, as a reference, in human form, regarding Islam?

Sana.

Which brings this all back full circle. And I’m SO excited to see how Even and Sana could be portrayed next season. I imagine Even would seek out Sana when he feels like he needs someone to speak to, because he turned to Islam last time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Even turns to Sana for support, or just as a friend in a time of need, or he goes to her to actually understand Islam and what he learnt about Islam, some more, by her. That’d then disclose to Sana, that Even’s learnt the entire Qura’an off by heart - and the discussions that could flow from that honestly give me goosebumps, in terms of Sana making Even understand what he learnt, or Sana giving Even insight, or Even understanding Sana and her struggles. We could see Sana open up to Even, and Even UNDERSTANDING that. 

This could be SUCH a GOOD SOLID friendship forming, with so MUCH representation being shown. Is it foolish of me to hope for so much between Even and Sana? Maybe it is. But there’s so much to fall back on in S3, that gives me that hope that we could see Even/Sana in S4! 

I don’t understand why you settle for less than what you deserve. I’m here waiting and willing to rip my heart out for you if you’d just ask. I want to give you all of the time that I have left in this lifetime. I want to give you a love so great that it will put great love stories to shame. I want to show you the world and I want to show you off to the world. I want to do so many thing for you, to you, and with you if you’d just let me.

The Bortle Scale and Light Pollution

The Bortle Scale is used by astronomers to rate the darkness of our skies. It ranges from 1 (darkest) to 9 (brightest). For most of us, our daily lives are spent beneath a radiance level of between 5 and 8 and rarely venture into areas ranked 3 or darker- and what a shame that is.

Light pollution, while a testament to our technological advances, has blanketed our view of the universe and decoupled our relationship with the cosmos. For the millions of people living in areas where less than 20 stars can be seen in the night sky, it is practically impossible to imagine a natural sky blanketed with upwards of 2,500 stars backed by great ribbons of billions of stars which can be found in our Galaxy: The Milky Way.
