which was weird for one movie

good food feelings
  • opening a family sized bag of chips and having the feeling of “i never have to buy chips ever again because there are so many chips in this bag”
  • the feeling of a cold glass bowl full of ice cream making your hands nice and chilly
  • biting into a smore that you thought you cooked too much to find that it still tastes delicious
  • really hot hot chocolate with really cold whipped cream on top
  • the perfect state that cereal reaches from 30-seconds to 90-seconds after pouring the milk where it’s not so hard that it scrapes the top of your mouth but it’s not too mushy that it feels gross
  • the crunch of lettuce and onion you get when taking the first bite of a warm burger
  • opening a soda on a warm summer night sleepover 
  • sorting fruit snacks by shape and then eating the extras so all of the groups are equal and then eating 1 fruit snack from each of the groups until they’re all gone so there’s no imbalance
  • having leftovers that still taste good after reheating them
  • otter-pops halfway through melting so ur not just eating ice but also it’s not just weirdly thick fruit juice
  • eating alone at home, allowing yourself to eat whatever comfort food or weird combination you want without the fear of people judging what you eat or how much you eat. tortilla chips in a ham sandwich? delicious. dipping carrots in ketchup? live it up. pancakes for dinner? hell yeah. speaking of which…
  • pancakes, bacon, sausage, egg, and hasbrowns for dinner
  • having a warm feeling in your stomach after eating some good soup 
  • carrying a good-sized bag of snacks out of a gas station midway into a long road trip
  • movie popcorn. somehow popcorn at a movie theater ALWAYS tastes different than homemade popcorn
  • opening a box of pizza and seeing the full pizza there. no one has eaten any yet, and there is a 0% chance of opening it to be disappointed that there’s none left. it’s all there, and it’s all fresh, and it’s destiny is now in your hands
  • any/every form of potato based food. just, like, in general. tater tots, french fries, hashbrowns, potato medallions, mashed potatoes, etc. all of them are perfect foods and all of them taste perfect w/ ketchup
  • a big ol mouthful of sticky rice
  • eating on the couch while watching TV with your loved ones
  • tha cronch of appl
  • the feeling of satisfaction you get when you try a new recipe and it tastes good on the first try
  • having a friend cook you something that tastes good and seeing the look of joy on their face when they see you like it
  • eating something youve been craving all day and feeling 100% satisfied with it

puffyball13  asked:

I loved billdip for a long time but often other fans of gravity falls said mean and rude things about it and to those who ship it? As a fellow shipper, I ask for your wisdom to tell me why?

Hello sweetheart, I’m sorry for taking so long to reply you.

For your question, I pretty much don’t want to discuss about this publicly but I think it would be better if I say it out one more time. 

As much as I hate to admit this but BillDip is neither the most popular ship AND the most hated ship in this fandom, the reason can be summarized in one word: pedophilia - which stands for a relationship between an adult with a child. Others reasons is about abusive relationship or some sort.

If you ever want an advice from me, let me tell you one thing, that is certainly important to remember if you ever see someone harrassing the ship again: they are fictional characters. None of the thing we artists/authors draw/write are real, it’s just our own imaginations. 

Sure when I say this some of you might wonder: “Then it’s okay to ship pedophilia with fictional characters because it’s your imagination?”. If I answer this in my very opinion, I’m the kind who would like to build a proper relationship for the couple I like so I can avoid all the bad things happen to them, but if I answer this in the role of all BillDip shippers, I must say yes and no, cause we all people and we have weird tastes in something sometimes but that not mean we support/are that kind in real life, fiction and real life are really, really different, please remember. It’s like watching some Disney movie which make you wondering “How the heck can two characters fall in love in like one day?”, but yet you still ship them. Yeah, that’s pretty much it mate, fiction don’t happen in real life. 

So if someone don’t like the ship please just move on, this fandom is not about us shippers so don’t pull the rage to you by yourself just because you don’t like it or want people to stop shipping it, trust me, they won’t stop…

Movies Bloodborne fans should watch: (if you ask me :P)
  • Brotherhood of the Wolf (French movie about the Beast of Gévaudan. Bloodborne’s fashion is most likely inspired by its beautiful costumes.)
  • Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Cainhurst? Cainhurst. Cheesy at times.)
  • Crimson Peak (Gothic romance at its finest.)
  • Hellboy 1 / 2 - The Golden Army (Just watch the two movies, okay? SO GOOD.)
  • Van Helsing (yeah yeah, I know this one isn’t that great. WHO CARES! harmless fun with crazy weaponry and big monsters.)
  • Mary Reilly (the classic tale of Dr.Jekyll & Mr.Hyde seen from the point of view of Jekyll’s housemaid who, obviously, has a crush on him. )
  • From Hell (Jack the Ripper. Johnny Depp, Alan Moore, lots of drugs.)
  • The Whisperer in the Darkness (The best adaptation of Lovecraft’s story of the same name.)
  • Red Riding Hood (this movie gets all the hate just because it has the same director as Twilight but is a pretty decent movie with great atmosphere and a nice twist near the end. It’s not that easy to figure out who’s the wolf! My only complaint about this flick is that the actors are waaaay too attractive in pure young-adult romance fashion. Still worth a watch.)
  • Tenshi no Tamago (aka Angel’s Egg. Weird, visually stunning, very esoteric and reminds me a ton of Fishing Hamlet for some reason. The plot is cryptic and mysterious, just like Bloodborne’s.)
  • The Company of Wolves (a weird classic based upon Angela Carter’s dark fairytales ~♡)
  • Pride, Prejudice and Zombies (It’s better than you think.)
  • Goya’s Ghosts (SPANISH INQUISITION! Heresy! Torture! Drama! Doesn’t “look” like Bloodborne, but the themes are there and is overall a good historical movie with great actors.)
  • Penny Dreadful (TV series. This one is a mixed bag for me, but the photography is stunning and Victorian to the core. Rushed ending tho. And a lot of gratuitous sex scenes that don’t go anywhere. I warned you.)
  • Taboo (TV series. PRETTY NICE)
  • Solomon Kane (PURITAN DUDE KILLS STUFF)
  • Hellsing Ultimate (Anime OVA which needs no introduction.)

anonymous asked:

Do you know what the first big movie novelisation was? Were they ever a big cultural force or just something that existed but no one really cared about?

Before I go into the history of the novelization (and its cousin, the comic adaptation), let me give a couple of recommendations of a few that are better than the movie itself or are just worth reading: Peter David’s novelization of Return of Swamp Thing turned a just-okay so-so movie I forgot the instant I left the theater into something very beautiful, poignant, charming and wonderful. It was all little tweaks, tiny little nudges that made individual moments that fell flat turn into something that worked. It’s amazing how few changes he made to make this story the best possible version of itself, though there were some things the novelization had that made it brilliant and surreal and even experimental, like for instance, Peter David made Alan Moore, Swamp Thing writer, an actual character in the story itself, a clerk at a motel who makes creepy and cryptic foreshadowing comments all through the story.

The novelization of the “meh” Jaws rip-off Orca by Arthur Herzog is a great book because it a tight thriller that gets us right into the head of the orca whale who wants to kill the whaler who murdered his family. Scenes that were maudlin are very moving in prose, with a whale mourning her dead baby and mate, and the hunter is even more tragic when we get into his head and see his remorse. It was like the whale started to represent his guilt. By contrast, the only part of the movie I remember is when the killer whale sets fire to an entire town. 

The novelization of the Flash Gordon movie is extraordinary because it contains explicit sex scenes. The talk is that it was based on an extremely horny early script for the film where it was a European scifi sexploitation romp like Barbarella or Lexx. Hahahaha, can you just imagine being some eleven year old who bought Flash Gordon because he liked the cool space movie only to find a chapter with a blowjob scene in a seraglio?

The whole idea behind Buckaroo Banzai: Across the Eighth Dimension is that it’s actually part 7 of a long running movie series that doesn’t exist, so there are lots of “hey, look, it’s him!” cameos to people we never saw before and tons of lore that just sat in the background. Buckaroo Banzai is a test I use to see if someone’s sense of humor is compatible with mine. So it stands to reason that the novelization, which is more information rich, is a delight for fans of the series. It’s like the only expanded universe product for something that never got an expanded universe. It has details like the fact that Pecos (briefly mentioned as being in Tibet in the film) is actually one of the few Hong Kong Cavaliers to be a woman, and she was in Tibet searching for Buckaroo’s archenemy Hanoi Xan. 

While I wouldn’t say that the novelization of Star Trek: the Motion Picture is better than the movie, exactly, it was written by Gene Roddenberry himself, and had one especially weird fourth wall breaking passage that seemed to be a shout out to the slash-writers, where Captain Kirk says “hey, I don’t know where this idea comes from, but I am super-straight, you guys, seriously. I am only attracted to women.” The novelization also was interesting in that we learned a bit more about Lieutenant Ilea’s empathic powers, which are fundamentally non-visual and we only got a vague sense of in the film. She received emotional signals very much like Deanna Troi later would, and she was not only a receiving empath but a projecting one: we learned that Mr. Sulu, from a less sexually evolved race than Deltans, couldn’t stop picture her naked. 

Finally, getting back to Peter David again, who is like the Phillip K. Dick or Michelangelo of this medium, his novelization of Spider-Man 3 is better than the movie. Moments that fail in the book work there. 

As for the history of the novelization, you have to try to imagine a world where you can’t see a movie whenever you want to. You can only see it when it’s in theaters for a few weeks or when it comes on TV years later. Therefore, novelizations and comic adaptations are designed to replicate the experience of going to the theater. In that sense, they’re almost a relic, technologically speaking, of a time before video and on demand. Fun fact: in the late 1970s, Marvel Comics had a ton of cash problems, and the only thing keeping the lights on was the money made by movie adaptations of things like Logan’s Run.  

Novelizations are extremely old: they go back to the 1920s, and one interesting example is the 1925 Tod Browning film London After Midnight, a horror film that no copies of exist at all and is a “lost film,” but because of the novelization (and a ton of still images during production), we nonetheless know what the plot of the movie is pretty well, to the point that the London After Midnight vampire is almost as iconic as other monsters, despite the fact no one has seen the actual film in decades.

To directly answer your question, the first big book novelization was actually for King Kong in 1933 by Delos Lovelace, which came out the year the movie did. The public went mad for King Kong and the book sold in the millions. It cemented the idea that the novelization is a pretty standard tie-in for a film release, and it’s the most important tie in novel ever written.

Explaining sensory overload and hypersensitivity to neurotypicals

so in a discord im in, me and @kuonabnaq started explaining hypersensitivity and sensory overload in terms people who dont experience them will understand and i thought they’d be useful to people! i’ve seen sensory overload and hypersensitivity explained decently, but never in ways people who don’t experience them will understand well so here’s some ways!

Sound

yknow that feeling you get from nails on a chalkboard? every sound does that

or yknow that feeling you get from nails on a chalkboard? every sound i cant control does that (since sometimes music helps - its a controllable sound)

Vision

“when you come out of a movie theater and the sun just pokes your eyes” - that, with every colour in my vision field

or the light at the dentist which goes right into your eyes, but with all light (including lights, colors, etc..)

Touch

when you forget that the sand on the beach is painfully hot and stand for a second too long, but with all contact

or when you get a bad grape but with everything

Smell

smell is when you walk past someone with a ton of perfume/cologne but for everything

or one of those really weird acids you have in chemistry, you know? Those that just shoot right up to the back of your head when you make the mistake of smelling it directly.

or walking into a lush/bath and body works/other similar store, but always 
(first and third are especially good if you want to highlight the ‘even good smells are bad smells’ thing)

31 Horrific Days [October Writing Challenge]

So it’s still September, BUT the month of Halloween is quickly approaching and I figured some people may like to get a head start on this so they have things to post! Here are 31 prompts for writing, one for each day of October. Skip any days that irk you or that you just don’t have the time and energy for, but feel free to use the tag #31horrificdays so others can see your work! As always, the prompts are up for interpretation and are meant to inspire a plot rather than dictate how it goes - all fandoms, original characters, or even a changing cast is more than welcome! [I may do a part 2 of vague, one-word prompts for those who want something more flexible].

  1. The character goes out on a date (or an outing with a friend) and comes home late that night to see all of their furniture moved/stacked oddly, rotten food in the fridge, but no signs of entry or security issues.
  2. The character learns through conversation that one of their friends hates Halloween.
  3. The character is distressed from several nights of nightmares/sleep paralysis, all of which leave them waking up terrified. Eventually, what they see in their dreams start to blend into reality.
  4. Write a story about supernatural happenings.. from the POV of a character’s pet.
  5. Write a story about a character receiving threatening letters in the mailbox that keep getting scarier and more dangerous every day through the month.
  6. The character, along with one or more others, decide to visit a local haunted house attraction that’s just opened up.
  7. Halloween is rolling around and an odd fair has come to town with all manner of old-fashioned clowns, fire-eaters, and jugglers. The character(s) get their hands on tickets to see the show and cannot resist.
  8. After hearing about an abandoned house in the neighborhood that was supposedly the scene of a gruesome crime years earlier, the character and a friend or two decide to explore the property.
  9. A fun, creepy night of urban exploration gets the character(s) into trouble.
  10. While spending some time at the beach at night, the character comes across something else moving near the shore, something that may or may not be human at all.
  11. The character didn’t plan on any costume for Halloween this year, but their best friend/partner wants to go shopping for the perfect costumes, perhaps even as a themed pair.
  12. Write a plot about a character meeting a fae creature, but realizing they aren’t as pretty and delicate as the fairy tales made them believe.
  13. After watching a horror movie, the character claims there weren’t scared at all. However, once the house is quiet and dark, they’re suddenly hiding under their covers in fear.
  14. With Halloween approaching, weird people have been hanging around town. Very weird people. ‘People in masks standing outside of houses’ weird people, including the character’s house.
  15. Two character end up in a battle over which is better: ghostly horror movies or monster movies?
  16. After the death of a friend or family member, the character (and possibly one or a few others) finds a hidden trap door in their home while cleaning out their belongings. Inside, they uncover secrets the deceased was hiding.
  17. The character makes a new friend who claims to be an actual witch. They end up proving it to them with an impressive display of magic (if the preferred character is actually a witch, feel free to change the POV)
  18. The character ends up locked in another reality where everything around them is just a bit ‘off’, as well as the fact that no one seems to recognize them. Then they meet one other character who does remember them, and appears to be going through the same thing.
  19. The character has a run-in with someone from their past; someone they know for a fact has been dead for years.
  20. The character has had a near-death experience, and is seeing a few moments between worlds before they’re brought back to life.
  21. The character(s) have a run-in with an odd trick-or-treater a week before Halloween, but the eerie child refuses to leave their doorstep
  22. The character, along with one other, travels to the Suicide Forest in Japan (or another famous haunted wilderness of writer’s choice) and uncovers something grisly, or perhaps even gets lost and disoriented. 
  23. The muse meets up with an old friend or family member, and together they find home videos from their childhood Halloweens. This could be either a heartwarming experience, or an eerie one if they see something spooky they didn’t remember from their past.
  24. The character starts a brand new job, but quickly learns that there are warnings that come with the job. No wonder they can’t keep employees for more than a few days.
  25. The character (one or more others are optional as well) has been kidnapped and locked in a cellar, trying to find the means of escape.
  26. Write a ghost story including any characters of your choice, with one twist: the story takes place in a past decade or century.
  27. The character has just moved to a new city and isn’t familiar with anyone or anything. As they’re taking a walk late at night to relieve their stress, they have an eerie feeling that they’re being followed down every block.
  28. Write a horror plot centered around a gas station (petrol station).
  29. The character lost a beloved pet a year earlier, and finally decides it’s time to bring home a new shelter pet to love. They’re magnetically drawn to one animal in particular, but once they take it home, they start to suspect that this animal may not be ordinary at all.
  30. Write a story from the perspective of a legendary monster (lagoon creature, zombie, sea monster, yeti, etc)
  31. It’s Halloween night - write a story about a costume party or get-together going terribly wrong.

He will grab your hips, pulling you against him and relish in the sounds of your high moans. The friction between Bucky and your swollen clit drives you both mad

~ When you top; the image of you above him, hair hanging down around your angelic face which is twisted with pleasure, makes every cell in his body twitch. It was almost as if you were made to fit your hips against his, grinding and grinding to feel the sweet release of his warmth inside of you. 

~ This is a weird one: he loves shower sex. You don’t question him, because why would you do that? Bucky loves pressing you against the cold tile, his hands squeezing your ass while the water rushes down on you both. He wouldn’t admit it, but he has always been a sucker for the romantic scenes in movies where the couple kisses in the rain; perhaps this is why he loves doing it in the shower. 

~ Working out with you. It almost always results in fucking there on the mat. Both of your sweaty bodies pressed up together, you desperately trying to pin him down? I mean, refer to turn on #2

“Are you ready, babe?” You peer into the mirror, adjusting the clasp on your necklace. The small heart-shaped garnet glints in the light and your heart flutters, remembering Daveed gifting it to you just this morning.

“Just a second,” he shouts from his bedroom. “I can’t get this fucking tie on straight!”

You snicker, tucking your lipstick into your small clutch. “Come out here and I’ll do it for you.”

Daveed grunts and shuffles out into the living room with his suit jacket draped over one arm and a sour look on his face.

“Why are you pouting?” You ask, fingers deftly untying the crooked knot and starting over again.

“I’m too old to not know how to tie my own tie,” he huffs, shoving one hand into the pockets of his dress pants.

Missing You and You Only

“I’m glad you could make it,” Ethan rasped, his voice groggy from the morning and arising from the dead of sleep. Truthfully, he hadn’t had that peaceful of a sleep in a long time, more specifically, in a couple months -since the last time he was home with you.

anonymous asked:

Maybe a hc of reddie going to see a horror movie together? 💕❤️

- its their first date and literally both boys are so nervous

- eddie keeps fixing his hair and making sure his breath smells minty fresh

- richie has tried on literally 10 outfits because he can’t decide what to wear and wants to look good

- he ends up being a few minutes late because of this

- at first its awkward, because they were friends the last time they went to the movies and now they’re dating and it seems super weird

- but then richie trips over his own feet and eddie laughs at him and they’re back to normal

- richie pays for everything, which eddie hates

- “i’m trying to be a gentleman”

- “its annoying, stop”

- they sit near the back of the cinema and richie throws his arm around the back of eddie’s chair before the boy has even sat down

- “we are going to just make out, are we? i actually wanna watch this film?”

- “i’ll do my best to restrain myself for you”

- one of the jump scares gets eddie pretty good and richie starts laughing his ass off until literally the next scene scares the shit out of him and he drops his popcorn over himself

- the movie turns out to be kind of shit, so eddie gets bored and leans his head on richie’s shoulder and richie starts blushing in the dark

- eddie reaches out for richie’s hand and he keeps stroking his thumb over his knucles and richie is just grinning like an idiot in the movie theatre

- “she’s gonna die, she keeps making dumb decisions”

- “richie she’s the only one that’s survived so far”

- “so far”

- the last jumpscare of the film freaks eddie out quite badly and he just stuffs his face into richie’s shoulder to hide and richie just silently comforts him

- when its over they walk out holding hands and they keep looking at each other and smiling because they’re both so loved up and they don’t even know it

just wondering because my memory sucks and i'm lazy but have you ever done scooby doo meets batman

Yes indeed, and they were some mighty fine movies!

We’ll get to them again one day, but until then, here are some favorite moments:

Batman pulling a bat-shaped cookie out of his pants.

The Penguin being miffed at the endless supply of money in this clown’s butt.

Batman sometimes remembering to wear his tights, and sometimes…

…not so much.

This goblin guy dancing in the road, which – strangely enough – was one of the few things I remembered from seeing this when I was super little.

He and the dryad really weirded me out.

Robin’s mouth disappearing.

And, the best character of all…

this guy.

one little thing about batman versus superman, which is an otherwise terrible and abysmal movie, is that the visible age difference between ben affleck and jeremy irons is not nearly significant enough to justify the “this is the ancient wayne family manservant who raised me from childhood” story, and the idea of a film protagonist having an honest to goodness butler in what is supposedly a gritty modern setting in 2017 is already weird enough but in the nolan trilogy there was the inherent plausible deniability that came with michael caine just generally having all of the looks and mannerisms of the oldest most impossibly hoity toity person who has ever existed. you just couldnt have this dilfy new alfred pulling a line like “oh master wayne, i remember when you were but a boy” without me and everyone else on earth being like thats bullshit, sweater-vested jeremy irons, you met this man by chance while you were both on sabbatical in venice 10 years ago and now you just kind of live in his giant house drinking bitchy little cappuccinos all the time. which is fine

It was a Saturday afternoon on a rainy day when everything happened, when you gain your boyfriend’s older brothers’ respect. And also embarrassed them more than they ever been embarrassed in their lives. 

Dick, Jason, Tim and you were spending some times altogether, getting to know each other, as in five years of relationship with Tim, you never really had time to hang out with his family (busy people). 

Bruce was at work, Alfred had a day off, and Damian was hanging out with some friends (which was so rare that no one dared to tell him to stay to spent the day with you guys). 

-No Jason, we  are NOT playing strip poker right now. 

-But I’m bored and a movie is…

-I said we’re not ! 

-Why nooooowwwt ? 

-Because it’s only you, Dick, (Y/N) and I, I don’t need to see my brothers naked. 

-And (Y/N) ?

-We’ve been together for five years, what, you think I never saw her naked ? 

-I never saw her naked. 

-Good.

Jason gives his brother an infuriating smile and, taking some soda cans while Tim takes a giant bowl of pop-corns, they go back to the living room where you and Dick are waiting.

one good thing to come out of the new death note movie is that it’s caused a resurgence in death note’s popularity and more people are watching the original anime which will lead to more kids getting into it which will further normalize nerd culture which is a good thing because just ten years ago if you were into weird shit like anime then you kept it to yourself and let me tell you that is not healthy

if you told me in the year of our lord 2017 that i would find myself defending a fictional character’s heterosexuality, i would’ve laughed at you. 

and yet, somehow, here i am. please, just listen.

if i thought asexuality was a core principle of the character of jughead jones, the way being gay is a core principle of character of kevin keller, i would be right there with you in your outrage. there has never been a version of kevin keller that isn’t gay, and there never should be. kevin keller was created to represent gay people. that’s one of his core principles, one of the pillars that he was built around. to remove that would be to violate the character, to change them irrevocably.

jughead jones was not created to represent asexual people. there have been multiple versions of jughead portrayed as straight or interested in girls. in the late 80s, there was a storyline portraying jughead’s love of food and dislike for romance as the result of a past heartbreak from a girl he had a crush on. in the 1990s alone, jughead had three girlfriends, one of which was one of archie’s descendents from the future (it was a weird time). as recently as 2014, jughead has been portrayed as married. one version has him married to ethel muggs, the other, to midge klump. in the (admittedly terrible) TV movie To Riverdale And Back Again, he was divorced and had a son. asexuality is not a core principle of his character.

that’s not to say that heterosexuality is. it isn’t. the core principle of jughead’s character, the reason he exists, is simply this: to contrast archie. that’s it. whatever a given version of archie is, the corresponding jughead must in some way be the opposite. digest!archie is girl-crazy, digest!jughead is girl-free. digest!archie rides the struggle bus, digest!jughead breezes through life on the easy-mode moped. digest!archie is a bit of an idiot, digest!jughead has high scores in both WIS and INT.

same with the more recent comics. comics!archie is a singularity of incompetence, a human-shaped whirlwind of chaos who does things so wrong that he sometimes breaks the rules of reality. comics!jughead, by constrast, seems to glide through everything with almost supernatural ease. once, while he was talking to archie outside during a rainstorm, archie asked him why he never gets wet or dirty.

in riverdale, things are a bit different, but in terms of jughead’s position in relation to archie, they are ever the same. rivderdale!archie is sweet and earnest, riverdale!jughead is sharp and sardonic. riverdale!archie is oblivious, riverdale!jughead is keen and observant. riverdale!archie is very much a lost boy, not knowing what he wants. riverdale!jughead has already found a strong sense of purpose–writing and investigating. their romantic relationships are an extension of those aspects; in the first season alone, riverdale!archie made out with three different girls, not counting grundy. riverdale!jughead, on the other hand, has only had eyes for one. the primary difference with these versions versus their print counterparts is a reversal of fortune; in riverdale, it’s archie who has it easy, whereas riverdale!jughead is constantly beset with struggles and setbacks.

riverdale!jughead is very much true to jughead’s core principle. so i think that asking for riverdale!jughead to be asexual, or getting upset and angry over the fact that he isn’t– both of these are missing the point. they are asking for too little. asexuality was tacked on as a footnote to the 2015 comic version of jughead, and tacked-on footnotes, as we have already seen, are easily removed.

what you should be asking for is a new character. a character for whom asexuality is a core principle. someone created just for you, to represent you. not a footnote on someone else’s history.

The good news was he’d gotten Virgil to agree to a movie night, just the two of them, in honor of the anxious side’s upcoming favorite holiday: Halloween. 

The better news was that Virgil was feeling so relaxed with Patton these days that, halfway through the evening, he had drifted off, curled up with his head on Patton’s shoulder and his arm draped over his waist. 

The bad news was that the nonstop Halloween specials that were currently cycling through the TV in the commons had taken a turn, and instead of the relatively benign features like Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas, the TV was now showing Child’s Play

And the worst news of all: the remote was out of reach, and Logan and Roman were having a bonding night of their own, immersed in strategy games and well out of earshot in Logan’s realm. 

Which mean that Patton had two choices: he could shift Virgil away from him in order to get the remote, risking waking him up and ensuring that their cuddling would be over for the night–unthinkable–or he could…could…

Watch Chucky.

Anime for Beginners and Non-Enthusiasts

I like anime. But not everyone does, and I can understand getting weary of its stereotypes or never having found an entry into its realm. So, I have compiled a few series (in alphabetic order, feel free to just pick any which sounds appealing) that come with my highest recommendation but require no previous familiarity with or pronounced sympathy for anime tropes. (The ones marked with an * are, in my humble opinion, great beyond measure.)

Bakemonogatari / Nisemonogatari / Nekomonogatari

A very wordy and pretty weird, but immensely rewarding, series of novel adaptations. Has some disorienting effects which only served to increase my fascination with it.

Blue Exorcist

Lighthearted, adventurous, beautifully realized coming-of-age fantasy drama series. There’s also a great movie set after the finale.

Cowboy Bebop

Retro sci-fi series whose episodes vary wildly in tone and topic. Very stylish; plus, it has an excellent soundtrack.

Eden Of The East

A rather down to earth and relatively realistic suspense story; overall on the light-hearted side.

Ergo Proxy

Hardboiled noir sci-fi.

Fullmetal Alchemist – Brotherhood

Lighthearted steampunk/fantasy fun.

Giant Robo – The Animation *

Grand, operatic retro steampunk/martial arts/superhero drama.

Haibane Renmei

Introverted, subtle, immersive, atmospheric, poetic fantasy drama.

Monster

An adaptation of the excellent and masterfully woven manga narrative by Naoki Urasawa.

Mushishi *

Part period piece, part fantasy; a strikingly beautiful, almost meditative viewing experience.

Paranoia Agent *

A surreal, brilliant masterpiece from Satoshi Kon, a stellar director at the height of his craft (I also strongly recommend checking out his movies, especially Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika). If this doesn’t blow your mind, you’re dead inside.

Planetes

Classic and very realistic sci-fi, without aliens and spaceship battles and all that distracting nonsense.

Samurai Champloo

Super-stylish martial arts series infused with hip-hop culture; by the creators of Cowboy Bebop.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

A scientifically accurate depiction of the aftermath of a massive earthquake hitting Tokyo. Caution: very sad.

Wolf’s Rain

Following a pack of mythical wolves on a trip to paradise in a dystopian future. Brilliant, allegorical, multi-layered apocalyptic fantasy epic.

Going to Breakfast Alone

We live in a world designed for pairs, couples, groups. Not for single people. This is never more obvious to me than when I go out to eat by myself.

Every couple of Saturdays, I take myself out to breakfast. So far, I’ve eaten at Denny’s, Ihop, and a few local diners. It’s astounding how awkward I find it. I probably over contemplate it- make it bigger than it has to be- but I’m not the only one who finds it abnormal.

My waitress asked me if I was treating myself. Which, yes, I definitely was.

Still- think about how weird it is to go out to a proper restaurant by yourself. Not a bar, not a diner with a counter, but a proper restaurant.

We live in a world designed for groups and socially constructed to see singleness as abnormal. I do a lot of things on my own right now. I’ve gone to movies, to the mall, to the museum, out to eat, all alone. These places aren’t really made to be experienced alone. They don’t exclude the possibility, but they are focused on couples and groups. I feel a little awkward in these places alone.

Humans are social creatures. We suffer when we don’t have people around us. (Of course, there are the introvert/extrovert stereotypes and antisocial behaviors and disorders, but we need other people. Sometimes in measured amounts.) It makes sense to provide places to interact with other people, and even to market the venue to couples or families.

But it’s not just the venues I go to- it’s the very society I live in. The kind where I am asked about a boyfriend or future plans and relationships every other day by well-meaning elderly ladies. This world is made for pairs. It is sculpted around it.

It doesn’t make my life any easier. I long for a pairing, for someone to be with. I’m perfectly capable of being on my own, but I want that life companion.

Being alone is hard. Its hard when you are expected to have someone. When you are judged on your ability to find a partner. When your worth is based off of who you date or sleep with or marry. When being alone is looked down upon and judged.

There is nothing wrong with being single. There is nothing wrong with going to Ihop alone. There is nothing wrong with living by yourself, being independent, being strong on your own. We may live in a society where we are expected to be with someone, but that doesn’t mean that society is right.

Sometimes, its good to be alone.
