what is this coloring we just don't know

How them 2000s live actions kids shows be
  • Normal Girl: *internally* I'm just a normal high school girl. I suck at math. I hate my parents. When someone asks me about my opinion on complex socioeconomic issues, I just go "What the heck!?" and start "texting" or something like that. My life would be just like yours, except for one thing: I have an amazing power... I can talk to cetaceans!
  • *at the docks, a bell tolls as our normal protagonist hears the voices of cetaceans bubbling in her mind*
  • Normal Girl: *staring deeply into the ocean*
  • Best Friend: Ahoy! What're you doing?
  • Normal Girl: Just staring into the oceanic abyss, thinking about how much I hate my parents. *internally* I have to keep my ability to speak to cetaceans secret or else... uh...
  • Best Friend: Haha, I feel that, friend. What a colorful life we teens live, our seaside environment awakening a rumbling darkness within ourselves of which we mull on our own with nothing but the unbounding depths of the ocean as our one escape. An escape which serves to only maim our fragile egos with newfound adolescent anxieties.
  • Normal Girl: What are you even talking about?
  • Best Friend: I don't know. I haven't slept in a week. Let's go to the mall.
  • *at the mall*
  • Normal Girl: *internally* My town might as well be called Lamesville. Nothing ever happens here, but the mall can be pretty fun. It's only place in the whole town with anything in it that isn't fish or excessive amounts of woodlice.
  • Best Friend: ...So I'd just dance and I'd dance until my feet broke. When that happened, I'd just get up and dance on my broken feet. And I did this until they were raw and blood was everywhere. I kept waking up in the morning extremely exhausted after this dream. I decided to record myself one night and it turns out I was dancing in my sleep. I haven't slept since I saw that. *leans in close to the normal girl* I'm afraid of what I'll do in my sleep.
  • Normal Girl: Wow, sounds weird... I guess. *sips coffee*
  • Best Friend: OMIGAWD! It's Chad Alphakid. He's coming this way!
  • *the normal girl and her best friend squee*
  • Normal Girl: *externally* That's Chad Alphakid. Who is he? He's only the hottest most coolest boy in this entire lame city. I've been crushing on him since I was like twelve.
  • Chad: Uh, okay.
  • Normal Girl: Did I just say that out loud!?
  • Chad: *sits at the table* Listen, I don't care what you or your friend think of me. I need help!
  • Best Friend: Have you murdered somebody?
  • Normal Girl: Do you need a girlfriend?
  • Chad: No, it's the ocean. The sound of her waves crashing against the shore is like a faultless siren song. There isn't a single night where I don't have visions of floating within her cold embrace. The allure of her boundless depths beckon to me like a lover. I'm afraid that if I don't get help soon, I'll find myself taken away by her to a fate unknown.
  • Normal Girl: *internally* Great, this is a chance to finally use my power to speak to cetaceans to my benefit! *externally* But why do you need us to help you?
  • Chad: You guys are the biggest fucking degenerate weirdos in this washed up town. If anyone knows how to deal with this, it's you two.
  • Best Friend: Haha, truuuuuu!
  • Normal Girl: I'm not a weirdo! I'm a completely normal girl.
  • Chad: Dude, you fucking talk to fish.
  • Best Friend: You do talk to fish.
  • Normal Girl: I don't talk to fish! *internally* I talk to cetaceans, they're mammals, not fish. Also, that's supposed to be a secret, dammit!
  • *at the shore*
  • Chad: Ah, Mother Ocean! Take me!! Take me!!! *attempts to run into the ocean, but gets held back by the normal girl and her best friend*
  • Best Friend: Simmer down, aqualad!
  • Chad: Why did you fools take me here, if not to release into the embrace of sweet Mother Ocean!?
  • Normal Girl: We talked it over and we decided that the best way to get you over your obsession is make you hate the ocean.
  • Chad: Does it involve you talking to fish?
  • Normal Girl: Yes, I mean no. I mean, fuck! Cetaceans aren't fish.
  • *the normal girl sits at the edge of shore, her eyes rolls up in her head as she proceeds to make fucked up porpoise sounds*
  • Normal Girl: *falls over limp*
  • Best Fried: She died.
  • Chad: Does this mean that I'm free to wade into Mother Ocean and meet my fate among her ever chaotic waes?
  • Best Friend: *lets chad go* Yeah, dude. I'm too far gone to care about things anymore.
  • Chad: *strips off all of his clothes* Good. I now understand that there was no avoiding this. This was always a forgone conclusion. My fate is with the waves. Sayonara, weird best friend guy.
  • Chad: *runs into the ocean*
  • Best Friend: *kicks the normal girl's body* Guess she really is dead.
  • Best Friend: *walks home as the night encroaches* My closest friend is dead, and Chad is probably dead too. I wonder where my fate lies?
  • Best Friend: *yawns* Maybe I should go to sleep and just dance myself to death finally. No, I don't think I could go to sleep even if I wanted to anymore. I'm probably going to die from exhaustion in the next few days, not having felt rest or comfort again. Or maybe I'll just stay awake forever. I feel like I was supposed to have an epiphany here, or some type of awakening. But, there's nothing. I feel like everything I've ever done has been pointless. God, I'm just really tired.
  • *back at the shore*
  • Porpoise: *beaches itself*
  • *a gray fleshy version of the normal girl crawls halfway out of the porpoises mouth*
  • Normal Girl: There goes my corpse! *drags her weird porpoise body towards the corpse* Why did I die with such a dumb expression on my face? Lame! I hope Chad didn't see.
  • Normal Girl: *looks around with beady eyes* No one's here. I can finally do this.
  • Normal Girl: *kisses her dead body on the lips* Blargh!
  • Normal Girl: *spits out blood* I bit my tongue when I died. Gross. I guess I can cross making out with my dead body and becoming a mermaid off of my bucket list, though.
  • Normal Girl: *sighs*
1d as things my roommate has said to me:
  • Harry: *comes into my room in a panic* is this your tofu, my tofu or Aerielle's tofu? I don't remember what color packaging I bought and I don't want to eat someone else's tofu!!
  • Liam: I just want to warn you... we have a cupboard under the stairs but that doesn't make you Harry Potter unless you start sleeping there, which I won't let you.
  • Louis: I'm not saying I'm not above yelling at freshmen to stop walking on our lawn, but if one more group of them walks on the lawn I'm going to yell
  • Niall: optimistically I'd like to say I can eat this whole pizza and it'll be tough but realistically I know I can and I will do it without hesitation

- Yeah, a little.

Highlights from All the Bright Places
  • Finch: .. it's only when I'm awake that I think about dying.
  • Finch: Worthless. Stupid. These are the words I grew up hearing. They're the words I try to outrun, because if I let them in, they might stay there and grow and fill me up and in, until the only thing left of me is worthless stupid worthless stupid worthless stupid freak.
  • Finch: This time will be different. This time, I will stay awake.
  • Finch: "My own brain is to me the most unaccountable of machinery-- always buzzing, humming, soaring roaring diving,, and then buried in the mud. And why? What's this passion for?"
  • Violet: "If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger."
  • Violet: Like everything else that doesn't last, today is gone now, but it was a pretty good day.
  • Finch: You have to live your life like you'll never be sorry. It's easier to do the right thing from the start so there's nothing to apologize for.
  • Finch: I know life well enough to know you can't count on things staying around or standing still, no matter how much you want them to.
  • Finch: The problem with people is they forget that most of the time it's the small things that count. Everyone's so busy waiting in the Waiting Place. If we stopped to remember that there's such a thing as a Purina Tower and a view like this, we'd all be happier.
  • Finch: What if life could be this way? Only the happy parts, none of the terrible, not even the mildly unpleasant. What if we could just cut out the bad and keep the good?
  • Finch: (referring to "impending, weightless doom") I like the idea of something that can give you those feelings all the time. I want something like that, and then I look at Violet and think: There she is.
  • Finch: I walk through the black Indiana night, under a ceiling of stars, and think about the phrase "elegance and euphoria," and how it describes exactly what i feel with Violet.
  • Finch: I pull her in and kiss her the way I've always wanted to kiss her, a lot more R-rated than PG-13.
  • Finch: Ultraviolet Remarkey-able, I think I love you.
  • Finch: The future is uncertain, but that can be a good thing.
  • Finch (while strangling Roamer): You put me here. You did this. It's your fault, your fault, your fault.
  • Finch: If a song's meant to stay around, you carry it with you in your bones.
  • Finch (quoting Cesare Pavese): "We do not remember days, we remember moments."
  • Finch: Decca, sometimes there's beauty in the tough words-- it's all in how you read them.
  • Violet: People like Theodore Finch don't die. He's just wandering.
  • Violet: May your eye go to the Sun, To the wind your soul .... You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.
  • Violet: What a terrible feeling to love someone and not be able to help them.
  • Violet: I didn't know that my life forever changing would be because you loved me and then left, and in such a final way.
  • Violet: Just because they're dead, they don't have to be. And neither do we.
  • Finch: You make me love you, And that could be the greatest thing my heart was ever fit to do ....
  • : Theodore Finch-- I was alive. I burned brightly. And then I died, but not really. Because someone like me cannot, will not, die like everyone else. I linger like the legends of the Blue Hole. I will always be here, in the offerings and people I left behind.
  • Jennifer Niven: ... it is important to talk about what happened.
  • Theodore Finch: You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.

Tim: Jason, why did you send a ridiculous amount of cheesecake to the Joker?

Jason: *Crosses out the words ‘hot body’ on a chalk board.*

Tim: Ya know what. We are gonna go get you some help. All the help Bruce’s money can buy. Like Dr. Phil and Oprah on the same episode help.

Chantilly Lace: You know, you are shilly!” You are perfect and you don’t even know it.

Merlot: I am not perfect. 

Chantilly Lace: Oh yes you are! You make me feel things too! Things that I never thought I’d feel.

Merlot: Oh yeah? Like what?

Chantilly Lace: Like… you make me not afraid anymore! I could run into the ocean right now, and wouldn’t be scared!!

Merlot: Huh?

  • Miiko: What?
  • Gardienne: ...
  • Miiko: WHAT?
  • Gardienne: So, sometimes I send my pet to explorations...
  • Miiko: CatNoir.
  • Gardienne: Yes, my Ciralak, and usually he comes back with, you know clothes, wigs, I'm pretty sure there's a Drag Queen living nearby somewhere...
  • Miiko: I am well aware of that, make your point, Gardy.
  • Gardienne: You´re... well aware of the Drag Queen nearby?!
  • Miiko: No! URRGH, DAMMIT, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!
  • Gardienne: OK, so... Because suddenly he's coming back with a lot of stuff, and I just don't know... Maybe we should give it back, I mean look at this! A sword! It's bigger than me!
  • Miiko: This is... unheard of. Maybe we really should find out where all this is coming from.
  • Gardienne: Right?! And these gloves, and these shoes, this dress! I have it in six colors!
  • Miiko: Oooh, do you have it in black?
  • Gardienne: No.
  • Miiko: Blue?
  • Gardienne: Yes. Here it is.
  • Miiko: ...
  • Miiko: You know what, if CatNoir foud it then no one was really taking care of it, first of all. So you should really keep those things.
  • Gardienne: You want this dress that bad, huh.
  • Miiko: Yea.

  • Blizzard: Hi everyone! We're very proud to announce our next game, Overwatch. We've been listening to a lot of player feedback directed toward our previous games, so what we decided to do here is create a vast roster of characters, each of a different race, gender, sexuality, size, creed, and even species. Our hope is that everyone would be able to find a character that they not only enjoy playing as, but that they could also possibly relate to.
  • Tumblr: The roster isn't diverse enough, fuck you.
  • Blizzard: Well, um, in October we're planning on doing a Halloween event! We'll be revealing our first ever PvE mode, which shows you and a group of friends teaming up against a horde of evil zombie Omnics. It'll be our fun little tribute to the classic horror films of the 1940s!
  • Tumblr: Look at Symmetra, you guys are fucking racist, die in a fire.
  • Blizzard: Er...well, this January, we're going to be launching an event centered around the Lunar New Year, a celebration of Eastern traditions and folklore. We spent a lot of time and research on this entire event with the hope that maybe all of us here in the States will be able to learn something new about different cultures and-
  • Tumblr: Fuck you, you ruined Mei forever, you bigoted-ass shit gobblers.
  • Blizzard: Okay, um, listen, we're just going to go back to focusing on our other games. We don't know what happened, but we've tried to appease you guys and that's clearly not working. We put effort into making our characters as diverse and authentic as possible. We seamlessly integrated nine people of color, at least two canonically queer characters, four physically disabled characters, one character with dwarfism, one character with PTSD, and one character on the autistic spectrum into the roster of the biggest game of the year. We didn't do this for Tumblr, we did this for everyone, but it's clearly not going to be enough. So we're going to start working on Heroes of the Storm instead.
  • Tumblr: ...
  • Blizzard: Still, we don't want to abandon the Overwatch fanbase forever, so if you play 10 rounds of HotS, we're giving away an exclusive D.Va skin!
  • Tumblr: *fucking burns down entire cities with misplaced rage*
talking to people about colorguard
  • person: what sport are you in? :-)

  • me: we spin flags and various weapons like rifle and saber and often spin while simultaneously having to dance and retain ballet skills alongside performance skills and remembering our drill spots!! and technically we are a part of the band unit, but we don't play music or anything like that. often times we just call ourselves band members just to save time with teachers and whatnot.
  • person: what
  • me:
  • me:

After seeing that we were given the ok to color these, I’ve been wanting to color this for awhile now and finally did.Characters and line art belongs to the lovely @thisiskindagross​.  I wanted to stay as close to her style as I could possibly get while keeping my own little coloring touches.

  • James: So what are we going to name her?
  • Jessie: I... Don't know. Let's think of a name...
  • *Awhile later*
  • [Team Rocket have captured Pikachu, and are up in their balloon.]
  • Jessie: Mwahahaha!
  • Ash: Aw man, I thought you guys had stopped following me.
  • Jessie: it's only been nine months.
  • *Audience laugh track*
  • Jessie: Anyway, twerp, prepare for trouble!
  • James: And make it... Triple!
  • Ash: Wait what?
  • [Meowth pops up, holding a baby with James' hair color and Jessie's blue eyes, holding a Pikachu Pokedoll. Jessie takes it into her arms.]
  • Jessie: Presenting...
  • James: Our daughter...
  • Jessie and James: Ashley!
  • [Ash looks up, stunned. He's just as stunned when Pikachu is handed back to him.]
  • Ash: You named her after me?
  • [Jessie and James nod.]
  • Jessie: Which is why we figured we had to give you the proper birth announcement.
  • [They wave goodbye and fly off into the sunset.]
