what channel this show come in

I’m fascinated by the fact that Phineas and Ferb is a show that actually exists
Like
I can understand how someone could have come up with the idea of an animated show about stepbrothers trying to find cool ways to spend their summer vacation
And from there I can see how the characters of Candace, Isabella, Beauford, Baljeet, Jeremy, and Stacy came about
But at what godforsaken point in the thought process did someone go, “Hey, what if there’s an ongoing subplot about their pet who’s a secret agent trying to stop a German guy from channeling his anger towards his abusive parents into conquering the tri-state area?”
Just
How

The cameras make a habit of getting a LIL TOO CLOSE to Viktor and Yuuri because the mics sometimes pick up what they say to each other before skating or in the Kiss & Cry, and audiences eat that shit up. There are people who watch ISU events like it’s the Viktor&Yuuri Show, and the sports channels know it

TUNE IN FOR THE NIKIFOROV-KATSUKI VARIETY HOUR, the advertisements practically blare.

Viktor can often be heard composing what sounds like literal on-the-spot poetry. (”You are my sun and stars and I will love you until I’m in the ground–”) Much of this is to calm Yuuri down before he skates. Most viewers assume that he writes this shit down somewhere but people who know Viktor understand it to be just the shit that literally is always coming out of Viktor’s mouth.

“Oh,” Yuuri says while they’re waiting for Viktor’s scores one time. He hasn’t put his glasses back on yet and is kind of just staring, unfocused, into the nebulous distance. “I forgot to call Minako and wish her a happy birthday.”

(“YEAH YOU DID,” Minako growls at the television back in Hasetsu. Hiroko pats her back. She just turned fifty. She’s sensitive.)

“Well, you’re dead now,” Viktor says, picking fuzz off his costume. “It was nice knowing you. I’ll never forget you.”

“Will you move on from me?” Yuuri asks. All of this is completely deadpan as they squint at the scoreboard. Yakov is on Viktor’s other side, rolling his eyes.

“No. I’ll roam the halls of our empty home, wailing for my lost love. When I die, I’ll continue to haunt the place where I was once happy. They will call me the Silver Spectre. Once or twice a year, Americans will come and try to film me. I’ll scream into their camera equipment and carve the words triple axel into the hardwood.”

“Please not the hardwood, Vitya.”

They find out that most ISU programming isn’t actually put on a delay during the 2018 Worlds, when Viktor and Yuuri are congratulating each other on winning gold and silver and the cameras pick up Viktor saying, “When we get home, I’m going to bend you over the table and–”

“LOVING WORDS FROM VIKTOR NIKIFOROV-KATSUKI TO HIS HUSBAND,” screams the commentator, whose producer is currently bellowing abort abort into his left ear. “LET’S GO TO PAULA WHO’S TALKING TO BRONZE MEDALIST YURI PLIS–OKAY, NEVER MIND. HAHA, TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES! WE’RE CUTTING TO COMMERCIAL.”

‘Technical difficulties’ is Yuri punting a tiger plush so hard towards Viktor that it knocks him backwards and into the backdrop for the Kiss & Cry.

“This used to be an ELEGANT SPORT,” Yakov growls. He looks to Lilia, whose expression is suspiciously toothy. “Are you laughing at this, Lilya?”

“How dare you accuse me of such a thing,” Lilia replies.

BMC YOUTUBER AU

LETS DO THIS


(I know there’s this amazing ask blog ( @ask-gaymermell ) and while this is separate from theirs (and I kinda came up with this idea before I knew about the blog) I still highly recommend that way more than these silly ideas.)


Rich:

•Starts out doing EXTREME stunts on vine of all places.

•They are freakin INSANE OK?

•Jake is the one who films it

•He does get pretty popular

•A little bit before Vine dies, Rich moves to YouTube and makes his videos more of showing him doing the set ups and showing what goes on for a stunt.

•They are still really reckless but that’s what everyone is there for.

•It’s soon coming up on the anniversary of him doing stunts for 3 maybe 4 years and he wants to do something EPIC

•Something that has NEVER been done before. And he hyped it up months in advance and his audience is mega hyped!!

•Until Rich suddenly disappeares

•For like three months, people thinking that he just… quit.

•Until Rich finally comes and uploads a video.

•It’s really vague, something happened with his stunt. Involving a fire. Him being in the hospital. And a friend getting hurt as well.

•Rich says that he can’t do stunts anymore, and that he doesn’t even know what to do anymore. YouTube was the way he made a living. But he doesn’t know what to do.

•"So… this might be goodbye. I’m sorry everyone.“

•There is a lot of people who felt bad for Rich and many who thought he was being a baby. This incident ended up becoming huge, news articles putting up stories, information being revealed.

•After 6 months, Rich appears again in a new channel. A vlogging channel of all things.

•Rich confesses that he had never truly showed himself to his audience before (for some reason…). And he had "edited” his lisp out of his videos. But he said that from then on, he was going to be honest and true.

•People were a bit salty about him still not doing stunts. But to Rich it didn’t matter, soon he admitted that he was having more fun doing this rather than stunts.

•Soon after a couple of months on the first day of June, he comes out as Bi. Telling a story that he had never thought of guys before and when he did he denied any sort of attraction. Until after the fire, when he decided to be true to himself.

•He does make an icon out of that, no longer being known as the “stunt guy” but the “bi boi” which made Rich laugh.

•Not soon after did Rich introduce his best friend (soon later to be boyfriend, but I’ll explain that later) Jake. Who had been shown in videos before but never introduced.

•But Rich always kept a jacket on. And wore makeup on his face.

•Many people would ask about what happened but Rich never wanted to talk about it. Many theories about it arose about it.

•Until on its anniversary, where Rich decided to tell how he was “convinced” to do this big fire stunt. Even though Jake and others had warned him.

•Rich then took off his jacket and his makeup to show his burns.

•In the middle of the video Jake had to come in and help Rich talk about what had happened.

•Jake had saved his life, but had broken both of his legs in the process. Jake still had to wear braces on his legs at the moment.

•But it was getting better. Rich and Jake were often considered the “power couple” of YouTube. Despite the fact that Jake didn’t have a channel. Or did he?


Jake:

•Loves music, so much. And puts his music on YouTube for fun.

•This is even before Rich had moved to YouTube or had even gotten big on Vine.

•He never shows his face, he makes his own art for the song and has it play in the background.

•He wasn’t popular at all. No one knew about his channel, not even Rich. But Jake rarely uploaded anyway. Only like one song ever couple of months.

•Jake wrote about being popular, about having fun, about summer, and about school.

•One day… he wrote about love.

•It was after the fire and Rich was in a full body cast. Him in a wheelchair. Rich had confessed everything to Jake. The Squip. The stunts. Everything.

•It only took a month for Jake to fall for him and write a song about it.

•and it EXPOLDED

•Which Jake didn’t even realize until Rich came in happier than he had been in weeks saying “Jakey D! You gotta check this out!”

•When Jake heard his own voice, he was shocked. He then checked later to see that it had over 1 million views.

•Jake started getting emails, asking to sign on. But Jake denied them all. Music was hobby, and Jake didn’t really want it to be more than that.

•But he continued to write music, but now. He wrote about his family. About being alone. About drugs. Each one getting more and more popular.

•And Jake honestly couldn’t believe it. Especially when his best friend / crush became his biggest fan.

•He never planned on telling anyone. But one day as Rich had one of his worst days in awhile. Jake wrote another song. For him.

•But instead of uploading it first. He came into Rich’s room with his guitar. And he sang.

•Rich originally thought it was just another one of his songs. Playing from his phone. But he didn’t recognize the song. So when he looked up at Jake, he was shocked.

•Jake sung about all the things he loved about Rich. How despite everything they went through he still loved him. Jake poured his heart and soul into it.

•when he was done, Rich kneeled on his bed grabbed him by the shirt into a big kiss. Didn’t really matter that the big guitar was in the way.

•Jake didn’t reveal himself as the mysterious artist for awhile. But the inside jokes that Jake and Rich had may have hinted at it.


Jeremy:

•Jeremy was told by Rich, who he had met in passing. Recognizing him on the spot. To get a Squip, and that’s how Rich could do all that crazy shit he did.

•Jeremy wanted to be cool like that. Have fans. Michael already had his own gaming channel, but Jeremy wanted to be better.

•The Squip had decided that Jeremy should ditch the gaming and do challenge videos instead. All the popular stuff. Even though Jeremy didn’t really care much for it.

•Soon Jeremy was starting to do more dangerous stuff. Talking about sensitive topics.

•Michael tried to talk to him, but Jeremy just said that he was jealous that he was getting more subs than him.

•The Squip is about to make him do something really crazy when Jeremy finds out what happened to Rich. So he gets Michael’s help and shuts down the Squip.

•Jeremy then makes an apology video about the sensitive stuff he said. And deletes his channel. Making anew as a Lets Player.

•And he and Michael start dating.


Michael:

•Michael had been doing Lets Plays for YEARS!!!

•He loves it a lot.

•But as Jeremy ignores him, his motivation for videos slip.

•When they have a fight where Jeremy just thinks Michael is jealous. Michael does have a panic attack and just can’t make videos because of it.

•Once it’s all resolved. Michael apologizes and promises to put more effort into his videos.

•Michael is also a big figure in the LGTB+ community (like Rich) having no shame in admitting since the very beginning.

•Once Jeremy and him start dating they start a collab channel that is them either playing games. Doing funny stuff. And vlogs.

•They are kinda of like the Dan and Phil of this universe.

•They have people guessing for months if they are dating or not.

•Till at Vidcon they are doing a panel and someone just yells at them to kiss.

•Which they do, to the surprise of MANY!

•"Man, I was having fun teasing everyone though.“

"Think of it this way, now you can kiss me anytime you want.”

“True that.”

AND THATS ALL I HAVE GOOD NIGHT

mercury aspects and learning

The planets that aspect mercury in your natal chart influence how you process and absorb information

The type of aspect determines whether a learning style makes life easier or harder for you. 

For example, a mercury-lilith trine means lilith’s influence helps you learn faster. A square between the two bodies indicates that, although intuition is how you learn best, it is hard to access, leaving you struggling until you clear the block.

Another example- mercury-pluto trine: your obsession yields epiphanies/results; mercury-pluto square: your obsessions are your detriment and often lead no where.

With time and development, any mercury aspect can pave the way to accessing and channeling your inner genius.

mercury conjunct sun: the conjunction is the only possible aspect between mercury and the sun. This might mean your ego plays a role in how you learn. You may easily retain information that specifically applies to you, and take pride in your intelligence. This position can indicate intellectual arrogance.

mercury aspect moon: You are an emotional/intuitive learner. You remember things that elicit an emotional response, or have sentimental value. You may be inconsistent in how you absorb information, communicating everything with ease one day and unable to form a coherent thought the next. Your mental energy comes and goes in cycles.

mercury aspect venus: You may be an auditory learner with some musical talent. You might retain information better if it’s in the form of a song. You learn better by taking notes in different colors, in a calm, beautiful environment. Venus brings ease, beauty, and effortless talent to everything it touches. making this an indicator of a sharp, blessed mind.

mercury aspect mars: You learn by doing. You learn through intense, obsessive, single-minded focus. If a subject excites you or rouses your passion, you will lose yourself in it until it bores you, or until you feel you’ve mastered it. You think, speak, and act impulsively- and might get in trouble for your words.

mercury aspect jupiter: You learn the big picture. You prefer lofty theories and ideals to details and hard facts. You like making generalizations and obscure connections between topics. Jupiter “expands” everything it touches, so this is another indicator of intelligence. Check out the very first post on this blog for the possible implications of mercury aspect (esp. conjunct) jupiter (link). Basically, you might be able to channel information from the universe, if developed.

mercury aspect saturn: You learn slowly. You process information thoroughly, and take time to respond or form conclusions. You might have insecurities about your intelligence, or feel like there’s something “blocking” your mind. You may become a faster learner in later years, and retain mental acuity well into old age.

mercury aspect uranus: You are an independent learner. You don’t like school or learning from teachers. You hate traditional methods. You learn what you feel like learning and come to your own conclusions. You may be prone to sudden epiphanies and flashes of genius. This is another indicator of intelligence. 

mercury aspect neptune: You are an intuitive learner. You like to “feel” the right answer, but can’t explain how you came up with it. You might have gotten in trouble for not showing your work. Like jupiter, neptune helps create a channel for spiritual/universal information. However, neptune either “dissolves” or “elevates” what it touches- making this position a possible blessing or curse.

mercury aspect pluto: You are an obsessive learner. You gain deeper insights into a small number of subjects by thinking about them over and over, for prolonged periods of time. You learn by asking hard questions and not stopping until you get answers. You are excellent at things that interest you, and completely apathetic to things you consider boring. Mercury-pluto people can see things with frightening clarity or be blinded by their emotions and paranoia. Like neptune, this can be extremely good or extremely bad.

mercury aspect lilith: You are wildly creative, unconventional, stubborn, and intuitive. You learn best by allowing your subconscious to guide you. Your mind has a mind of its own, presenting you with unusual, brilliant ideas, but preventing you from grasping numbers and hard concepts. Your difficulty with learning some things (along with supernatural mastery of others) could make you feel alienated from the world. You may have a gift for understanding the mystical/occult, at the expense of being unable to grasp solid, practical subjects.

IMPORTANT PSA

arin “egoraptor” hanson is a very talented artist and voice actor. his “bad gaming skills” do not discredit the his amazing talents in other areas. he should not be hated for his opinions on gaming topics, unpopular or otherwise. he is a very funny, very kind, very talented individual. he built the game grumps company from the ground up and, without him, we would not have the beloved channel and all of the youtube shows that we love so much. please recognize how wonderful and talented he is. please be thankful for all he has done and brought to us. 

please appreciate arin “egoraptor” hanson. thank you. that is all. 

I just had this idea and I’m fucking crying laughing

The Avengers plus Pepper and Rhodey on the red carpet leading up to the annual Maria Stark Foundation gala, answering questions, telling people what they’re wearing, posing for pictures, making nice with the paparazzi. And then it Happens.

“So who are you going home with tonight, Mr. Stark?” some asshole calls out, smiling cheekily.

And Tony’s smile goes from sincere to brittle, and every other interviewer and paparazzo vows to murder this asshole, because Tony’s going to clam up now, give snarky answers–

“He’s going home with me,” Pepper says sweetly, curling her arm around his.

“No, he’s going home with me,” Natasha replies, smug, and curls her arm around Tony’s free one.

“Sorry, ladies,” Bucky drawls, wrapping his arms around Tony’s waist and drawing him away from them. “He’s going home with me.”

“Nay, friend Barnes!” Thor booms, pulling Tony away from him. “Anthony will be accompanied home by me!”

Steve doesn’t even bother saying anything, just punches Thor in the solar plexus and steals Tony from him. Steve has, of course, started a brawl, because that’s always what he’s been best at, even when he was tiny and asthmatic. Even Pepper joins in, using the chain of her purse to try and strangle Bucky (which he admits was not all for show later).

“Let’s go inside,” Bruce suggests, a little green around the edges, and ushers Tony along the carpet.

Rhodey curls his arm around Tony’s shoulders as he steps into the building. “But you’re going home with me, right?”

Tony’s smile is tremulous. “Rhodey~”

“Go home and drink wine from a box and watch shitty movies on the sci-fi channel?” Rhodey nudges Bruce with his elbow. “You can come too, Bruce, we like to bitch about the science.”

“That sounds–nice,” Bruce offers.

(The rest of the Avengers and Pepper, bedraggled and bruised, straggle into the Tower later that night to see that Bruce is drunkenly crying into his hands “that’s not how this works, that’s not how any of this works” as Tony and Rhodey howl with laughter over Piranhaconda and how fake the fish-snake looks.)

Pulse shooting raw footage disturbs survivors, Orlando community as first anniversary looms

  • Survivors of the Pulse nightclub shooting and Orlando community members are shocked after mutliple news networks aired raw police body cam footage showing the tragedy unfold.
  • Angel Santiago Jr., a survivor of the shooting, was sitting with a friend at a local bar in Orlando when he saw the footage running on the 11 p.m. news. 
  • Santiago said that the footage he saw took place in the room where he hid in the club that night. He asked the bartender to change the channel.
  • “They just kept replaying it over and over again,” Santiago said in a phone interview. “There’s no good that comes from that. What’s the purpose? It’s not going to change what happened.”
  • Santiago said he’s most upset with local Orlando affiliates who chose to run the footage knowing that the community is still reeling from last June’s tragedy. He said the decision shows a lack of regard for the survivors and deceased’s families. Read more (6/1/17)
au where bitty becomes a really popular youtuber

and after jack publicly comes out they do the couples yoga challenge for eric’s channel and jack has never been quite this bad at anything in his life, and eric is just like “oh, honey, can you not lift your leg over your head? what about touching your toes? well, at least you can lift me. lord, this just goes to show that if figure skating were easy they would call it hockey.

anonymous asked:

Maybe tutorial on poses??? I really like the poses you draw :D

Alright, there isnt a set way to come up with good poses, but i can show you some resources that’ll help with yours!

the key to getting ur poses to look great is a strong understanding of GESTURE

Here’s a video explaining gesture by Stan Prokopenko

I also recommend watching his other gesture videos so you get a better idea of what you should be aiming for when studying gesture.

but how do you get better at gesture drawing?

Here’s Croquis Cafe

and New Master’s Academy

Both channels have a series of videos emulating real-life timed figure drawing studio sessions. You’ll start with quick 1min poses and work your way up to 5 and 10 minute poses. I try to do at least one of these sessions every day. 

If it feels like its going too fast, you can pause, but remember you’re meant to reduce or increase the simplicity of the figure depending on the time you re given. It’ll take time to get seriously good at this, however you’ll start seeing improvements within a few days!

Now if you’re looking for a place where to find a number of good ol anime pinup-like poses to use as reference and build a library, there’s

Gravure Heaven (nsfw)

and Giga Chaoss (also nsfw)

among a few other sites such as imageboards and the like. Ive also made it a habit to save any picture or artwork with a cool pose into my library.

aand thats about it! this is the QUICK way to getting good at poses. As long as you’re willing to put in the effort you’ll definitely get results from this!

“Carnations” (Masterlist)

It takes you a moment to process what’s happening. By the time realization kicks in, the Student Gov member delivering the carnations is visibly annoyed. She sighs, “I have about twenty more dorm rooms to visit. Could you please just take the flowers?”

You stare intently at the carnations. “This isn’t a joke, right?”

“Oh, this is actually for a YouTube prank channel that we’re launching, and – no, of course this isn’t a joke!” the girl snaps. She thrusts the flowers into your hands and stalks off into the hallway, a large box of carnations propped against her hip.

You mechanically fill up an empty jar with and stick the bouquet in the makeshift vase. Your mind rewinds back to Steve explaining that white carnations would symbolize secret admiration. If only there was a card –

A gasp escapes your lips as you notice a small card tied around the stem of a carnation. You quickly untie the gently knotted twine and hold up the card to your eyes.

so i’ve seen a lot of talk recently (from myself included) about all the plotlines being explored in s4, which ones are getting more or less time, and sana not getting enough focus- so i wanted to take some time and separate the show from the fandom and the social media content and really see what’s getting the main focus, specifically looking at the screen time dedicated to each plotline 

i feel like since we all want to know like everything that's going on with every character and have created so many theories, small details really stand out and get cycled around the fandom a lot so they feel like the biggest deal (which i mostly love) but like i said i’m putting all that aside and this is only going to be what’s shown in the show itself because while the youtube channel and text messages and everything add so much it really all comes down to what’s actually on air

so i’m gonna split this up into what i think are the main plotlines we’ve been following (of course some of these overlap and i’ll account for that) and this is only a little over halfway through episode 4 (posted before the last clip) and i’ve rounded a bit just for sanity’s sake 

  • Sana’s personal conflicts and storylines
    • Russebuss/ Islam and Norwegian Identity (including her performing Salah): 34 minutes
    • Yousef: 22 minutes
    • Relationship with family: 15 minutes
  • Noora and her past/relationship with William: 16 minutes
  • Vilde and her relationship with Magnus: 5:30 minutes 
  • Evak and Even’s connection to Sana/Mikael: 6:30 minutes 

take from this what you will i really just did this to work it out for myself

So, I'm American & fairly new to the Skam fandom and unfamiliar with Norwegian anything, so I was just wondering about something. On the show they play songs in English and the characters, most notably Noora, sing American songs in English, so does this mean they also speak English and understand it? Like if I went to Norway and ran into one of them and spoke to them would they understand what I'm saying? Is it common for Norwegians to also speak English?

I have to admit me (French) and my Swedish friend had a good laugh over your ask.

I’ll answer it seriously instead of the million of ways I could sass you in the hopes it’ll help other people realise how USA-centric (and sometimes “just” English-as-a-first-language-centric) they can be.

English has been one of the most prominent world language for a while now.
It is taught in schools, as a second language, in most countries that do not have it as a first language. It is often required for someone to know English if they want to hold any job in their native country (from being a waiter to practising medicine). When two people from different countries that do not have English as a first language want to communicate, they will often do so in English: since most people speak it already.

The USA is an economic power that influences the entire world. From its politics to its pop culture, the country dominates. People in Europe often consume more media coming from the USA (and the UK) than from their own country (this is from my personal observations). We are used to hearing English.
The internet is mainly in English too, for the reasons I listed above: it’s easier for people of different nationalities to talk to each other in English. You also have more online dictionaries that translate your native tongue to English than to other languages.
When Isak googles his questions about being gay, it is in English. Because if he were to google them in Norwegian, he would get much less results. It’s as simple as that.

Everywhere you go (apart from rural areas) you’re sure to find people who will speak English. We’re knee-deep in the English language and have been since we were born.

The fact that this is news to you is a baffling show of how USA-centric Americans can be.
How were you able to live your life without realising how much your language and country influences the rest of the world?
It almost seems like other countries seem to exist more to us than to you.
Because, since we were little, we were taught that we needed to speak other languages to be understood outside of our borders. We were taught about the English and American culture in text books and in our movies and novels. (I remember making an independent bookseller in France sweat when I asked him if he knew of any funny novel not written originally in English) We watch Disney Channel shows and are supposed to understand the intricacies of the American school system and what cheerleaders even are.

So yes, people in Norway (like mostly everywhere else) speak English.
They understand English. They listen to songs in English.
English slips into their everyday language and they’ll say things like “Jesus Christ!” with an American pronunciation because they heard it so much in American movies. Things like “I read it last week” just because the phrase comes to them this way. Things like “I know what you’re playing” because, again, it comes this way naturally and maybe they heard it on a TV show and it stuck and they know the reference will be shared (or that, at least, the English will be understood).
They’ll post on Instagram in English because they’ll want their text to be understood worldwide.

See, French is my first language, and yet I wrote all of this in English without the help of a dictionary. Most of the Europeans in the SKAM fandom communicate with each other in English on the daily.

I hope this answers your question. And I hope Americans start looking outside of their borders without needing to be prompted every single time.

12x10 - “Pterodactyl Screeching into the void” - Part 1

My title is borrowed from @postmodernmulticoloredcloak comment on my crazy blogging after first watching this episode earlier. I feel like it is a fitting title for how this episode made me feel. To clarify, these are very very happy pterodactyls.

Steve Yokey wrote this episode and he appears to have well and truly taken up the gap left when Robbie Thompson sadly left the show. In fact this episode to me channels the ghost of Robbie in many different ways. From the fanfiction-esque moments of poor suffering third wheel Sam, to the meta nod to Charlie Bradbury, there is much of Robbie to be found here. Basically, it was bloody perfect.

I feel like there is so much to talk about in this episode that fandom will be chewing on it for months if not years to come. Yokey has picked up the characterisations brilliantly, and seems to have an understanding of what the fandom desperately craves in terms of Castiel, his character, his personality and his development. I adored his sass in this episode. Some other writers *cough*bucklemming*cough* struggle to really capture Castiel’s sass and humour. Showing their lack of understanding of Castiel’s persona and his intelligence and instead writing him in a way that is jarring and sometimes basically stupid. Castiel is far from stupid. In this episode he was written perfectly, in a way I haven’t seen since Edlund’s time. Is that a sweeping statement? Maybe. But I’m still riding my high so let me have it this time.

This episode gave us three of my favourite things. Badass and Sassy Castiel, Overprotective grumpy husband Dean, and poor long suffering brother Sam. (baring in mind this is how they are usually written in fanfiction nowadays this is exactly my jam and I am so so happy to see it play out on screen. Seriously who sold their soul to Crowley for this episode?)

This review will also be in two parts. Because I have so freaking much to say about it.

The first part will focus on destiel, the second on everything else including Castiel’s emotional arc (as separate from destiel), his relationships with angels, angels and gender and Lily Sunder’s character.

Reader comforting Pete after he messes up on a mission and innocents get hurt?

There was a sombre mood in the common room as you and most of the Avengers sat around the enormous TV which Tony had installed.

You sat on the arm of one of the sofas with Wanda leaning her head against your thigh, silent tears streaming down her cheeks. You stroked her hair absentmindedly, unable to pull your eyes away from the TV screen.

The mission from which you’d all just returned had been horrible. Clint was trying to make you laugh by doing impressions of Pudsey Bear, but the blood staining the bandage around his head slightly ruined the effect. Steve and Bucky had barely spoken since returning, Wanda had barely stopped crying, and the rest of the team appeared to be in a daze as they watched the footage from the mission on the screen.

You had all fought well, but you were severely outnumbered by gunmen. Civilians had been trapped in the middle of the fight, and the footage on every news channel in the world showed just how well you’d defended them as they were carried away in bags.

You breathed in sharply as footage of you and Peter appeared on the screen, trying desperately to shield a group of civilians from a spray of bullets. You knew what was coming, and watched with a grave expression as a bullet struck your left shoulder and made you fall to the ground. On the screen, Peter lunged towards you to catch you, leaving the civilians unguarded.

They fell like dominoes.

“That’s enough,” you said suddenly, your voice strangely emotionless. “We all know what happened, watching this won’t help anyone.”

You reached for the remote with your uninjured arm and switched the TV off, before standing and making your way into the kitchen.

Peter was hunched over the sink, and the muffled sounds of sobs reached your ears. Sighing, you climbed onto the breakfast bar and sat facing him, your legs swinging over the side of the table.

“Give it a couple of days, they’ll have stopped reporting about it,” you told him quietly. “Three days, and people will forget the footage ever existed.”

“But I won’t forget,” your boyfriend replied, standing slightly straighter but not turning to face you. “Every time I blink, I either see you or them being shot.”

You rubbed your bandaged shoulder subconsciously, trying to think of a way to comfort him.

“I know what you’re here to do, (Nickname), and I appreciate it, but I have to accept this,” he continued. “People died, it’s on me.”

“It’s on both of us,” you argued back, and he turned to face you, confusion written all over his face. “If I’d just been watching, I would’ve seen the bullet that got me coming. I wouldn’t have been hit, you wouldn’t have moved, and we would’ve saved those people.”

When Peter didn’t reply, you opened your arms to him, hiding your grimace of pain as your left shoulder screamed in protest. He closed the distance between the two of you quickly, wrapping his arms around your waist and burying his face in the crook of your neck as he stood between your legs. You rubbed his back gently, whispering comforting nonsense under your breath to him.

“When I saw you fall, I didn’t care about the others,” he whispered eventually, his voice thick with tears. “I thought I’d lost you, and they didn’t matter anymore. Does that make me a bad person?”

You pulled away slightly so that your forehead was resting against his. He clung to your wrists as you cupped his face carefully.

“Don’t you ever say that, Pete. You try to save everyone you can, that makes you one of the bravest people in the world. You’re my hero.”

He chuckled quietly, nuzzling his nose against yours.

“And you’re my world,” he whispered back.

OKAY GUYS I NOTICED SOMETHING

So in the special commentary they put on DEH’s youtube channel had a comment from King Lacamoire saying “That ambient guitar is what I call the ‘lying sound’. It appears as a motif throughout the show when Evan is making something up.” So, in For Forever, we hear it after Evan says “and he’s come to get me/and everything’s okay.” Makes sense.

But in Words fail, we get the line “and you think everybody wants it/needs it/a little bit, too”.

And guess what comes after

That frickin ambient guitar.

Evan’s lying. He can’t convince himself that this situation is helping anyone. I don’t know why but this makes me incredibly sad.

Fear in the Natal Chart

When you think of fear in correlation to the natal chart there are several themes that come to mind. First and foremost, fears can be psychological and come from the subconscious. One can then immediately shift their attention to primary forces of the subconscious, such as the collective 12th house and the moon as well as the 4th house, which consist of one’s psychological roots. The 12th house and Neptune have rulership over addictions and 4th house and moon can show habit and emotional coping mechanisms. It is through these methods that fear is channeled and continues to resurface, and so fears this deeply embedded into the soul are then difficult to banish.

All the water houses work at an unconscious level, Pluto and the 8th house is where one’s deepest and darkest secrets rest, the house of taboo. Perhaps there is buried shame here pertaining to the planetary or sign energy, and thus fear surrounding this area; a fear that what is buried may eventually come to surface against one’s wishes, like an uncomfortable exposure and nakedness of the psyche. This is the house of intimacy, and what is more intimate than fear fertilizing the walls of one’s mind, bringing about paranoia.

Maybe Saturn is not too far behind, it shows one’s insecurities and this is closely tied to the concept of fear, it can give birth to fear, you know, such as Saturn in the 10th is insecure of their goals and succeeding and so fears failure. Or Saturn in the 5th is insecure of their self-expression and so fears genuinely being themselves and easing into life, they just can’t seem to do it.

While this can all prove true, fear is such a fluid concept that it is not simply limited to certain areas in the chart.

Every placement, house position and aspect has a fear linked to it. A Cancer for instance at their darkest is the needless and desperate mother, or the Jungian archetype of the orphaned child, an inner child who feels alone and thus fears abandonment. Uranus in any house is on a different wavelength, they seek progressiveness and change and so there is a fear of conforming to the area of life it works through primarily, such as Uranus in the 7th does not wish to conform to partnership but seeks liberation from it, or Uranus in the 3rd does not wish to conform to average thinking or communication they think outside the box and around the box and through the box, there is a fear of losing one’s freedom with Uranus. Moon contacts are concerned with emotional safety. There is a clinginess to what makes one feel safe, sound and secure, a retreat to the subconscious womb. We can take mercury/moon contacts; innocent enough, yet may fear losing communicative outlets of their emotions and so the mind can go frantic with unspoken feeling.

Fear is like water, or gas; it is shapeless, universal; it spreads easily and slips swiftly through the slightest openings, accumulating until it overwhelms and consumes the vessel it’s creeping into. In this sense, fear is everywhere in the natal chart.

A trait that is shared between Sagittarius and Gemini as sister signs is being simultaneously open and skeptical. Where the openness and skepticism comes from for the two signs are different.

With Gemini, it is an air sign that naturally rules over the 3rd House. The 3rd House shows objective thinking and primary education. Your neighborhood, a small, confined “world” is also shown in the 3rd House. Gemini itself represents youthfulness and the exciting exchange of communication that sparks learning due to being exposed to new concepts and ideas. Gemini, as a logical air sign, will ask, “Where are the facts? How do these facts logically tie altogether?” They will put their preconceptions and the new concept side by side. Their preconceptions often comes from what they’ve formulated themselves in their mind, what they’ve heard from others, and what they’ve learned in school - all of these spaces are limited spaces. From a confined, limited space, Gemini can learn to expand their mind. As an air sign, Gemini is able to channel their skepticism in a rational way, for their way of thinking is often logical and objective.

With Sagittarius, it is a fire sign that naturally rules over the 9th House. The 9th House shows subjective thinking and secondary education. The world itself is also shown in the 9th House. Sagittarius itself represents wisdom and the exciting thrill of exploration that sparks learning due to seeing the grandeur of all concepts and ideas on a grand scale. Sagittarius, as a passionate fire sign, will ask, “I’ve already seen so many things in the world, why should I believe in this?” They, like Gemini, will also put their preconceptions and the new concept side by side. Their preconceptions often comes from what they’ve found to believe in due to a lot of exposure and various life experiences - all of these origins are from open spaces. From a wide, grand space, Sagittarius can learn to mentally take root. As a fire sign, Sagittarius is able to channel their skepticism in a passionate way, for their way of thinking is often energetic and subjective.
