i’m skeeved out by leekie as much as the next person but i get so frustrated when people ignore or want to ignore that he and delphine definitely had a thing going–i get frustrated that the show seems to be content to sweep it under the rug. i feel like it just ignores so many juicy points of extrapolation about who she is, and where she is coming from. it’s such an important part of her character, she was in deep with the enemy, she used to (still does?) passionately believe in the ideals of that crusade, she climbed the ranks and sat at the top with its figurehead. you saw how delphine’s eyes lit up at the idea of assuming that position herself, even when it was rachel duncan offering it; she could smell the trap, but she still took the bait. yes, she loves cosima, and yes, she wants to prove herself to her, but in her head, i don’t think that means dropping dyad. delphine has so many points of inner conflict and dubious grey areas, and it is so, so important to remember that, that these are not two different delphines, the “before cosima” and the “after cosima,” but are in fact the same exact person, that this one individual contains these multitudes that are not mutually exclusive, and not lose that to some whipped caricature of her. she’s not some dewy-eyed lamb, she is a grown ass woman with ambitions for power within a worldwide eugenical organization. being in love with a product of that does not negate that; in fact it kind of codifies it. she is arguably as in love with cosima the human as she is cosima the experiment, and she doesn’t trouble herself with trying to separate the two.
I just landed a voice acting gig for an indie game that’s still in development and my anxiety’s trying to whisper shit into my ear like “you could fuck this entire thing up & embarrass yourself~” and “they might hate you & replace you~” and “it’s still in development what if the entire project falls through~” but my INTENSE EXCITEMENT is drowning it all out lmao
i doodled a sloppy kagehina partner assassins AU bc i needed it in my life
i cant draw guns so i just scribbled pls spare me
(kags is supposed to be a sniper and hinata a close combat specialist. i think kags would be a one bullet and done sort of assassin while hinata gets too excited and leaves things a little too messy for his partner’s taste and they end up bickering bc “now we have to clean this up, dumbass!!!11″)
Zayn loves Zayn girls. He knows we get upset. He stalks us just like we stalk him. He knows his selfies can make a Zayn girl’s day. Guys…. this is really important. He knows us. He feels us. He understands.
I know it says in good omens that the tax people got suspicious due to how accurately Aziraphale filed his taxes, but I’m betting atleast part of the problem was that no one could figure out how the heck a guy who sells like 4.2 books a year at most even still has a business to file returns for
What the fuck with Americans trying to glamorize high school years? Put a filter on, add some grain, take photographs of young lovers kissing each other and running around in a forest, make films of group of friends driving in the countryside and siblings enjoying the sun on a boat. Light a cigarette, eat snacks that go well with alcohol, somehow the reason behind is just some dumb boy dumped our girl. No. Take off that filter, this isn’t 90s anymore, iPhones in everyone’s hands have clearer vision. Teenage years isn’t only about the social drama and occasional sadness that seem to take over your life. In fact, it revolves around what the fuck am I gonna do with my life, with my parents pushing me to study law and the craving of a gaze from a boy I’ll never actually love on the top. The truth is, if teenage years were dessert you’d throw the tasteless cake ornaments away and dig the frosting to eat the plain cake. Indie rock will never play in the background as you kiss your lover on the shore and fireworks color the night sky and camera won’t romantically lose focus. In reality, life’s not romantic. Teenagers are dreamy and we like to deafen ourselves with loud music but we’re not romantic. That was childhood. In high school years you get closer to college and life gets more complicated and real. Those are the years you lose someone from your family for the first time and start to notice that people are dying one by one, so you realize your parents aren’t gonna be a around forever. You start to study more and read more and understand more and even pay attention to politics a little. You regret kissing not kissing, loving not loving, speaking up shutting up, isolation socializing because teenage years are a giant ball of mess, it has knots you will eventually give up solving. What I’m trying to say to those 25, 30, 45, 60 year old photographers and filmmakers who get applause by their peers for perfectly capturing the youth daze, that wasn’t a deep take on the way a teenager’s mind work, that was nostalgia.
