what is even happening over there

4

Here’s my breakdown of what happened at C2E2!

I spent Friday attending professional panels for the comics industry, which probably deserves a post of its own, but I don’t think anyone is interested in me talking shop. But Saturday was devoted to Agents of SHIELD stuff with Iain and Liz. I had an amazing time and so many awesome things happened. Truly it was the best con experience I’ve ever had and, as @bigfunnywords (HEY Tumblr finally let me tag you!) said, I lived my best life. I’ll try to do the tl;dr version but this will probably get long.

Putting the rest behind a cut for your scrolling convenience.

Starling: Chapter Twenty-Nine

«First Next>

Kenna pulled over on the shoulder somewhere more dust than sidewalk. She killed the ignition and half-leaned, half-crawled into the back seat to stare at Roy’s screen. Elliott and Alex had both abandoned their sulks to look too, which totaled three enormous people craning into his space, reading and rereading Laura’s message over his shoulder.

“What does that mean, rescue will be complete by dawn?” said Kenna, jabbing a claw at the phrase in question.

“Before sunrise,” Roy rephrased, unsure if that was what she was really asking, but unable to understand anything more complex about it himself. His voice sounded flat and distant even to him.

“Did something happen?” demanded Elliott.

Kenna withdrew to the front to fiddle with her own comp for a moment. "Nothing in the news,” she reported.

Roy sank slowly in his seat and let the conversation flow over his head.

So I saw this today. Ok first of WHAT?! 1 Issue is a lot?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! One issue is not a lot!! Like that’s just dumb! Second, saying Dick/Babs or Dick/Kori can’t happen but Dick/Shawn can (even tho Dick/Babs and Dick/Kori have been developed over years) is just so backwards to me. I don’t hate Shawn, and I have nothing against doing something new, and I’m a strong advocate for not giving into the demand of a fandom just cause one ship is more popular than another, but at least justify it. I like you Seeley! You started off so well! But the more I see the less confident I am in your understanding of Dick Grayson and just how important his relationships with Babs and Kori actually are.

What would happen if in a small fight sf sans turned around to fast and slapped his S/O by accident? which caused them to fall over and whack there face on a counter? (Which would leave a small bruise, but other wise they'd be fine and wouldn't break up with him)

Swapfell Sans

The moment he sees your face, he instantly regrets it, but it’s his pride that prevents him from apologizing. You’re waiting for him to say something, anything, but he just stares at you, completely shocked. Black doesn’t even remember why he was mad at you anymore, but shit, he fucking hurt you. He broke his promise to always protect you and make sure nothing happened to you, but this time, he’s the instigator, how can he live with himself? 

Black opens his mouth to stutter out an apology, but that nagging pride in the back of his head, says why should he? He’s not in the wrong this time, it’s your fault that he hit you. Black doesn’t want to believe that, but still, he can’t for the life of him apologizes, so he just stumbles out of the room. 

The next few weeks, Black is extremely bipolar, where one day, he will avoid you at all cost, and the next, he showers you with love, gifts, and extra affection. He just doesn’t know how to deal with his guilt. 

I’m not even joking I have no fucking clue what else has happened in this episode.

My brain is just stuck rewatching that scene over and over and asking

“Did that just happen?”

“Was that real?”

“Did we really just get that??”

37. “Can I kiss you?” + 66. “Stay over.”

They were sitting next to each other, silently looking out over the dark water. Mercutio kept moving about restlessly, the adrenaline obviously still coursing through his veins; once Tybalt softly placed a hand over his bruised knuckles, however, he stilled and became almost peaceful. Tybalt didn’t remove his hand, and Mercutio didn’t pull away. The silence wrapped around them was comfortable, and it was a jarring feeling when Mercutio spoke, even softly as he did.

I doubt that the MCU will in anyway be affected by the comics. Doctor Strange made a good amount of money despite the controversy over the Ancient One and I'm sure that if Iron Fist wasn't so rushed people would have eaten that up as well.

Possibly. But this controversy is much worse than either of those. I don’t imagine for a second that the MCU is going to end or anything so alarmist or even that the effect will be huge. But They have unquestionably lost a good number of fans over what’s happened recently and Their handling of it. I have always said that there will be a time when Marvel falls out of public favor. I don’t mean that as an insult, it’s just the way things go. No one stays at the top forever and I think this may be the final push for that to really happen.

They’ll be fine. Barring any really extreme circumstances, They’re not going anywhere. I just think the era of Them being held as the pinnacle of comics and superhero media is coming to an end and the films will be affected by that, even if it simply means They’re not seen as THE only way to do all of this and I welcome such a change.

anonymous asked:

I'm so torn because I want Carrie to be happy but Carrie having another love interest just won't feel right. Kinda like hey had to "off" Quinn so they could start over. Sometimes I really can't believe the show, the show I loved and was obsessed with, and not just because of Quinn, has done this.

I will eat my hat if they bring in a new love interest for Carrie. 

I just do not see it happening, in any sense. What would be the point? They just killed off her lead man of the last 3-4 seasons, and - I would argue - her only real love interest of the entire show. I think even casual viewers would do a major eye-roll. Clearly, the writers do not want Carrie to be happy, and it has never been more evident than now.

Friends to Enemies to Lovers

Friends to enemies to lovers requested by Anon

I hope you like them!!

- A and B were introduced to one another through C and C thought that they would be good friends because of their common interests, and A and B hit off pretty well, that is until A and B have an argument, and neither of them tell C what happened, but now they are mortal enemies and do everything in one another’s power to make the other’s life a living hell, like telling the other spoilers to their favourite shows and do the little things that make the other person mad on purpose, C finally gets them both in a room and forces them to talk and when they do, their issue was so stupid that C can’t even begin to comprehend that they were actually fighting over this, so C calls out their feelings and while they go beat red, C leaves the room, and when A and B come out, they are dating


- A and B were best friends as little kids, and then in middle school they had a bad argument and one of them moved away, they vowed that they hated each other and would never talk to one another ever again, until they both end up going to the same high school, they don’t recognize each other, and when they realize who one another is, they end up becoming rivals in everything they do, from their grades to the sports and everything in between, until C points out that they actually really like each other, and both of their faces go beet red, and a week later they end up dating, and a couple years later they are married with kids

- A and B were friends for a bit until C accidentally sabotaged it, C got in the middle of an argument and things got messy, and when they got messy C didn’t step up and own up to their mistake, so A and B soon became enemies, and it’s not until both are forced into a room together that they realize everything was C’s fault and that A and B both really did want to go out on a date, and C was the one who ruined everything, so A and B get together and now their goal is get back at C

- A and B were friends, but their parents started to argue and throw accusations at one another, so then A and B slowly started to hate one another because of the things their parents told them, and they thought that the other one was using them, so their hatred burns within the both of them, but one night A is walking around town and B ends up saving them from a creepy stranger, and A awkwardly tells B ‘thanks’ and B tells them an old joke they use to laugh at, and they begin to talk everything out and realize that it’s their parents feud and not theirs and they decide to go out on a date, and leave their parents fight out of their relationship

- A and B are immortal and they were friends for centuries before they became enemies, and no one but A or B knows what actually happened, but when A and B start to fight they do the most infuriating things, like sending them their most hated animal, or sending each other their most hated food, until one of them sends them a message that says 'hey I like your face but fix your personality’ and the other follow suits, until eventually they are leaving threatening but loving messages for one another to find, then they finally decide to meet, and when they do, sparks go off and they become lovers right then and there

I think betty killed him- after finding out about her angry issues and how "she's a completely different person" when she goes through one of those episodes and doesn't have control over what she's doing Jason probably did something to hurt polly and Betty couldn't control what she was doing again and doesn't even remember killing him

I would love to see this happen. It would be such a major twist.

@the-lost-lieutenant

​ ha respondido: Now here’s the thing. Does she accept the head? Cause I think the answer is yes. How do you say no to a person giving you a head, cause uuuuuh… like what happens if you say no? It’s not that you WANT the head. (I mean she might but probably not) but seriously, WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU SAY NO! Very problematic.

you know what man, you’re right– my most problematic doodle yet and i didn’t even realize.. so now Aryn is just stuck with some random, decapitated head(s) and unable to decline or return them

In light of recent events...

I’m disgusted with events that took place over the last 12 hours or so on Twitter, and I’m even more disgusted that this is a thing that happens repetitiously. So, here is a list of basic etiquette for meeting DnP in public. Honestly all of this is common sense, but apparently some people need to be reminded of it:

(Once you have read this, you have absolutely no excuses for your actions should you ever meet them (not that you had any excuses to begin with) and shall have 100% responsibility for your actions.)

(Also, these rules apply to any stars/celebrities/humans in general that you may encounter and apply in any location or scenario.)

  • DON’T take videos or photos of them without their consent, full stop. It’s a breach of their privacy, which goes against their fundamental human rights and is therefore illegal in almost all countries around the world, countries like Australia and the UK included…
  • …and if you do, DO delete it/them, especially if they ask you to. Again, it’s illegal and just morally wrong to take/keep/post non-consensual footage of them.
  • DON’T follow them or stalk them. It’s common sense and is for the same reasons as I listed above (it’s illegal), so if I get anyone questioning why, I will be really disgusted and disappointed.
  • DO go to meetups if you want selfies and if you want to meet them. The very reason meetups exist is so that you can meet your favourite stars in a consensual and relaxed environment, so take advantage of that rather than springing a trap on them outside of said consensual environments.
  • DO remember that DnP are no more or less human than us. I’ve seen people using the argument that they’re celebrities and that they should expect to be followed and whatnot, but they have the right to privacy as much as any of us and can feel frustration as much as any of us, so treat them like you’d treat any normal member of the public.
  • DO remember to distinguish between running into them coincidentally and deliberately tracking or following them. Running into them coincidentally is something you didn’t expect or intend to happen, therefore not your fault. Following or tracking them is 100% a conscious action so you are expect to take full responsibility for whatever may happen.
  • DON’T use “Oh but it’s a public area” as an excuse for following them. I’ve seen and argued with so many people who have used that excuse, but it doesn’t make following them any less morally or legally corrupt. Just because it may be deemed a public area doesn’t mean they’re always willing to interact with any people in it in a public manner. They are in public for the sake of sorting out shit for their own personal lives, it’s not an automatic invitation for anyone and everyone to follow them. Besides, Dan specifically said in a liveshow not to follow them in airports, so listen to them when they say that and assume the same request applies for any other public area.
  • DON’T think that they’re okay with being followed just because they offer to take selfies or whatever or because they don’t call you out on following them. I do wish DnP had more backbone regarding this, but the only reason they may agree to interacting with you is because they’re very selfless men who put their viewers wants (wants, not needs, because meeting them is not a necessity in life) before their own, however that doesn’t mean they’re comfortable doing it. Don’t take advantage of that selflessness.
  • DON’T remain under the impression that they live to serve us. They are under no obligation to do anything for us, not even on the internet, and it’s only because they’re good and admittedly-over-generous people that they do so in the first place. Just because they’re entertainers online sometimes doesn’t mean they’re idols to be objectified and dehumanised all the time, everywhere. They have their own lives and personal needs, exactly the same as we do.
  • DON’T be surprised if you receive backlash for doing things like what those people did today, you deserve every nasty tweet, post and DM you receive (unless you receive death threats or anything like that, which is never okay).
  • DON’T feel you have the right to defend yourself if you receive backlash, because you honestly don’t.

One final thought: you ever think about why celebrities imply or say that they want to live a ‘normal’ life? It’s because of stalkers and followers like the ones today, people who completely dehumanise them and put them on a pedestal where they’re expected to stay and be leered at 24/7. It’s not fair to enforce this on fellow human beings, especially with human beings as gracious and patient with us as DnP are. You don’t deserve to be called a ‘fan’ if you can’t love and value and respect them properly.

  • Kara: hey Alex can you help me with this
  • Alex: is that a lamp
  • Kara: yeah well it's supposed to be a red sun lamp but I can't get it to work
  • Alex: why do you need a red sun lamp what are you--
  • Maggie: *smirking* just help the kid out with her red sun lamp, little danvers has plans
  • Kara: *blushing* I- *fixes glasses* want to surprise Lena later ton--
  • Alex: you know what? I don't even wanna know just hand it over
  • Maggie: trying not to break any more of your furniture I see

STAR WARS is really good for time travel fic, the urge to give the characters a chance to fix things, now that they have an idea of what went wrong or what to look out for, while still having to relive so many painful things, that balance of suffering and yet it’s worth it for the hope it offers, it’s exactly what the best fic is made of. I LOVE TIME TRAVEL FIC SO MUCH, so I’ve collected together a bunch of my favorites!

Zelda in BotW is an amazing character. If I had to make a list of the 10 best characters in the LoZ games, I have a hard time imagining she wouldn’t be on it. And nearly everything I’ve seen from other people who have played the game has been bursting with positivity and appreciation for this Zelda. 

However, I’m unfortunately not surprised to have eventually run across someone calling her “a miserable cunt” and a “shitty little shit bag” who is “demoralizing [Link] into oblivion” with over 100 people liking/reblogging their post. 

There are a couple of things to say in response to this. For starts, Jesus christ calm down. It’s wild to me how ready people are to hate characters for almost anything (and it overwhelmingly happens with female characters–jeez I wonder why). And second, did we even play the same game? Because you know what the WORST we ever saw Zelda acting towards Link was? 

That’s… that’s it. She told him she didn’t need an escort and shouted at him to stop following her. And this wasn’t just the worst that Zelda ever acted towards Link. It was also the ONLY time we saw her shouting at him or being mean to him. Was it rude/crummy/something Link didn’t deserve? Totally. Was it her being ~a miserable shitty little shit bag cunt that fucking destroyed Link’s sense of self worth~? Hell no. How the hell do you extrapolate THAT MUCH out of such a small scene? 

Just to help paint a larger, and more negative picture of Zelda, let’s talk about another memory. In the first memory, which was of Zelda preforming the ceremony to appoint Link as her knight, Zelda was acting very clearly depressed during the whole thing. That would have conveyed to Link how unhappy Zelda was with him being her knight, which would have surely made Link feel shitty. So there, that’s something else people who hate this Zelda can point to. But you know what? If you want to analyze things like this, Link also made Zelda feel shitty. Oh, sure, we all know that Link made Zelda feel shitty because of her own insecurities about being a failure of a royal princess while Link had successfully become the master of the Master Sword. But Link’s own behavior also made Zelda feel shitty. We saw in the third memory that Zelda would try to talk normally with Link. Talking casually and cheerfully about making adjustments to one of the Divine Beasts because that’s what she was passionate about! But Link… would never say anything back in response. He was silent. He was her appointed knight, but he wouldn’t even talk to her when she tried to talk to him. In fact, at that point Link had NEVER spoken to Zelda, as she expressed in her diary 

Imagine if their situations were reversed, and we saw Link talking to Zelda and Zelda refusing to respond to him and just staring at him with a blank expression–and then Link wrote in his diary about how stressful that was for him and how it made him feel like she thought he was a failure and hated him. The people who hate BotW Zelda would be jumping on that as an example of what a bitch Zelda was to Link. Even though when Link did it to Zelda, there’s no problem whatsoever apparently. Link was just a smol little precious angel that was cowering beneath Zelda’s “toxic belittling and dominance,” as one person described it. 

(And real quick… you know who was ACTUALLY “belittling” and “demoralizing” Link? Fucking Revali. You know, the guy who would walk right up to Link and go on a giant, passive aggressive and mockery-filled rant at Link about how he’s better than Link and Link doesn’t deserve the expectations that others have of him. I still think Revali is a solid character because it’s good to have a diverse cast with varied personalities and different relationship dynamics with each other. But for crying out loud, how is anyone going to hate on Zelda for how she acted towards Link early on when Revali was there being a straight up dick with 0 tragic character motivation behind him to make us sympathetic to why he acted like such a wad?) 

Of course I don’t believe that Link deserves any hate for being silent around Zelda for so long. Just like how I don’t believe that Zelda deserves any hate for the way she acted towards and felt about Link in the early memories. They were two youths who had the weight of the world placed upon their shoulders. Link’s ability to express himself was crushed by the weight of the expectations and judging eyes of everyone around him. Zelda lost her mother, was denied expressions of love from her father, was terrified that she was a failure who would doom the world to destruction because of her inability to access her powers, and was was stuck with a successful, brilliant knight who she assumed hated her and had no way of being told otherwise because HE WOULDN’T EVEN TALK TO HER. 

But despite all that the two became close. Link saved Zelda’s life. Zelda reevaluated how she thought of him and even apologized for her past behavior 

Zelda made an effort and kept talking to him, trying to get him to open up to her. And eventually he did, and she was able to learn the reason why he wouldn’t talk to her, or anyone, in the past. They traveled together. She examined his wounds after battle. They went out to collect specimens in the fields together. Zelda tried to get Link to lick a frog in the name of science. Link taught Zelda how to bond with her horse. They saw their home fall to Calamity Ganon and learned of the deaths of their family and friends. Their world collapsed. They fled. They defended each others’ lives, each saving the other. Zelda spent 100 years suffering alone to contain the abomination that destroyed their land while Link recovered from the injuries he gained protecting her. They fought together again. They freed Hyrule from 100 years of darkness and set out once again to rebuild their kingdom together. 

But yeah. Zelda was such a cunt, right? 

I mean, you can’t please everyone. That’s just to be expected. People are different. People have different attitudes and values, and like and enjoy different things, so there’s no piece of media that everyone will have the same thoughts and feelings on. It’s like how on the Nintendo eShop, BotW for the Wii U has 4719 five star reviews… and 21 one star reviews. You can’t please everyone. But again, jesus christ some people are just ready to violently hate Zelda for having extremely well developed character flaws and a rocky start to her relationship with Link that was the result of both of their individual issues clashing and preventing them from connecting and understanding each other even though they both felt nearly the exact same way. And even if you want to insist that everything bad about their early relationship was 100% Zelda’s fault alone, I wonder how Zelda could possibly make up for it… maybe putting in the effort to develop a very positive relationship with Link, saving his life just as he had saved hers, and spending 100 years in Ganon Jail would be enough to make up for it? 

…nah. You’ve got to imprison yourself for at least TWO HUNDRED years to make up for telling someone to stop following you one time. Totally.

Thursday night found Zach Dempsey sprawled on his bed.

A week worth of complimentary notes was at the foot of the bed. Some were folded, some all the way open but none of them were in their original, pristine state. They were crumpled, thing that probably happened whenever the boy stuffed them in his pockets.
