some thoughts on jyn erso

i’m sorry to do this because i know we’re all probably exhausted to death of jyn erso discourse, but i was finally able to collect my thoughts on some aspects of her character into coherent ideas that i want to post

this isn’t a jyn erso hate post, and i’m not an “anti jyn” or someone who completely despises her character. there are some things about her that i like! she’s just not my favorite, and i’ve been curious as to why that is. it’s not typical of me to feel so neutral of what is objectively a strong female lead, especially when it’s something like star wars where those are often lacking. 

here’s what i think it boils down to: i don’t really like her that much, because of the filmmakers’ attempts to make her likable

if you’re trying to portray a character who is rough around the edges, jaded with the universe, and doing whatever it takes to survive, why not go all out? i would have loved to see jyn be more angry, meaner, scrappier, and belligerent. give me a jyn who when she is captured by the rebellion, acts like a caged animal. give me a jyn who will scratch and claw in order to survive. give me a jyn who is expressive of her anger and fear and desperation. give me a jyn who yells and screams and and doesn’t know how to control her rage and frustration at her situation. 

i think my main problem with jyn is that, to me, she comes across as bored more than jaded. rather than someone who has been fighting her way along her whole life and been hardened, she seems like a woman who is just uninterested in her surroundings. when she says the line that’s like (paraphrasing here) “it can’t bother you if you don’t look up” in the movie it feels so dismissive to me and doesn’t pack a punch. i would have rather had that line be biting, full of bitterness and disillusionment that shows the reaction of someone who has been so hurt before by all sides that she has lost hope in any goodness in the world. 

unfortunately, what i think a lot of this comes down to, and why this isn’t the jyn we see in the movie, is the cultural requirement that we need to make women palatable in order to be likable. there’s the idea that if a woman is too emotional, or angry, or yells a lot, people are going to hate her and thinks she’s a total bitch. well i would actually love a bitchier, meaner, more raw jyn erso. but we didn’t get that side of her because, let’s face it, women can’t act like that in movies, whereas men can. because a woman who spits rage and scratches and claws would be seem as threatening and unrelatable to a male audience. so what we get instead is the watered-down, sugar-coated version of what should be a gritty, harsh character. we get boredom instead of rage, because that’s what’s easier to swallow. and i feel cheated about the jyn erso that could have been, but that we didn’t get to see. 

So I made something. I was reading “Espressophile” by @otayuriistheliteralbest and I just loved the latte art designs mentioned. I don’t really draw a lot so I figured it’s good practice.

Hope to redo it another time to make the tiger look better.

This was done traditionally on a watercolor journal using Schmincke Akademie watercolor + brushes from Raphael and Escoda.

I love Otabek and Yuri as a ship and they’re so adorable when they’re hanging out or being domestic. I can totally see them as friends who would fall in love as they get to know each other better.

If you like it, feel free to share this post as it is public anyway. Thanks!

Ok so i saw a post and all the comments were talking about how the beast was about 10 or 11 when he got cursed. HOW?? Theres like no way right?

I mean, magic dude.

But, in the original tale, he was a child when he was cursed which you know, adds onto how fucked up the enchantress was. Like, what sort of 10 or 11 year old wouldn’t turn away some creepy woman who knocks on your door? It’s common sense.

Now, in the new Live Action they aged him up. Probably to fill in that weird mention above. It makes a lot more sense that he’d have no compassion like that when he’s that old because of something that happened in his childhood.

It’s more probable, that in his 20′s(Maybe is early 30′s but I’m aiming more towards his 20′s), he’d turn someone away because he was indeed heartless. And because she’s an Enchantress, she can probably prolong his life which is why he was the same age(and everyone else who was cursed too) when the curse was broken. More commonly though, the theory is she merely stopped time for the curse which is why everyone and everything ended up being the same at the end of the movie.

thealogie replied to your post: the entire concept of the loft is hilarious to me….

when the neighbor who knows they’re gay comes over wilson is like “he’s lying to you about us being gay. does this look like a gay apartment? we don’t even have window treatments” and she’s like “honey…straight men don’t even know what window treatments are?”

I barely know what a window treatment is

While I respect the antis that have actually gone through traumatic experiences I feel like most of them are SJW who have no idea what they're talking about. For satire reasons I browsed one of the bigger one's blogs and saw them posting about how genderbending=transphobia and I'm like??? I know a trans who enjoys genderbending and they find no problem with it??? There's a lot more stupid shit like that and I just have to wonder how disconnected some of them are.

Ugh I agree 100% antis act like they’re fighting for some greater good or some shit when in reality they’re just being problematic af and have no idea what they’re talking about

Like I’m an extremely left wing person and I can be quite opinionated about stuff like just ask anyone who knows me if someone starts a political argument and I’m around they know I will fucking go off but I fucking hate SJW with a burning passion because 99% of the time they have no fucking clue what they’re talking about and make left-wing policies and rhetoric look like a childish joke because they say things in such a dumbass way and do such dumbass shit.

Tumblr is such a SJW hole it’s unreal I used to be an SJW when I was like 14 bc tumblr kinda brainwashed me into thinking that was all legit and true but as I got older and actually realised what the world is actually like I realised the shit SJW’s do and say legit just makes problems worse bc they’re so ignorant in a little tumblr bubble that they don’t know how to actually apply the shit they say or believe in to real life hence why they end up getting called snowflakes bc it’s like they expect everything in the world to just fall into place around them and unfortunately the world isn’t and never will be that way.

Like if you dislike shaladin so much that it makes you have anxiety attacks, blacklist it, don’t follow people who post it. You can’t expect people not to ship something just because you don’t like it, that isn’t going to happen and you can’t go though life having that mindset because you will never get anywhere.

I’ve suffered with anxiety for years so I know how bad anxiety attacks are, but as the person with the mental illness YOU have to take the initiative to deal with these triggers and block things out that you really don’t want to see. That’s an issue with SJW tumblr and anxiety/depression etc they expect the world to change for them to fit their mental illness which just doesn’t happen. You have to change your environment because the environment won’t change for you. As sad as that may sound in a broader sense, that’s just reality and it isn’t going to change any time soon.

That’s why antis tend to be younger because they haven’t yet really been exposed to the real ‘adult’ world so are still in their little tumblr filter bubble where they expect everything to float around them and make them comfortable which they are soon and quite abruptly going to realise isn’t how reality works.

Callout Post for @hyperstorms

Too nice. Too sweet. She reaches the character limit leaving nice comments on people’s fics. Who does that? It’s awesome.

guess who just saw the power rangers movie?

this guy, that’s who.

It was pretty good. I only have two gripes about it, and they are kind of me problems.

1. We only saw Jason’s sword being used as a weapon. I wanted to see the other Ranger weapons. The Lance, the Axe, the Bow, the Daggers. Maybe even the power blaster. But I guess you can’t get ‘em all, and who knows maybe they’ll show up in a potential sequel (come on we all saw the post credits scene mentioning Tommy Oliver AKA the Green/White Ranger).

2. We didn’t get to actually SEE the Megazord forming. As some one who not only likes the Megazord formations in the franchise, but transformation sequences in general, I really don’t like it when they blur out the effects with flames or bright light. i wanna actually SEE the change happening.

Other than that it was pretty decent.

shoot-the-smiles  asked:

What was the age difference between Ser Bonnifer and then-Princess Rhaella? If she was a teenager when she had Rhaegar that would've made her in her 30s when she died and in her 40s or 50s now if she'd lived, right? He didn't seem that old in Jaime's chapters, maybe his 60s, or am I remembering wrong?

Regarding this post by @rhaellas, we don’t know precisely, but we can guesstimate based on available information. Some quotes:

“she was once smitten with a young knight from the stormlands who wore her favor at a tourney and named her queen of love and beauty. A brief thing. […] He put away his lance the day your lady mother wed your father. Afterward he became most pious, and was heard to say that only the Maiden could replace Queen Rhaella in his heart. His passion was impossible, of course. A landed knight is no fit consort for a princess of royal blood.” –Daenerys VII, ADWD


“Rhaella grew up in the court of her grandfather Aegon V. She became infatuated, for a time, with a handsome tourney knight from the stormlands, but it was a passing fancy that came to an end when her father, Jaehaerys, heard a prophecy from a woods witch, brought to court by Jenny of Oldstones, that the prince who was promised would come from his children.” –”Rhaella Targaryen” entry, AWOIAF Official iPad app

Rhaella was born in either 245 or 246, and she and Aerys wed around 258, when Rhaella was about 12 or 13. The official app tells us her infatuation with Bonifer ended before the wedding, at the time Jaehaerys announced the betrothal. We don’t know when this announcement was made, but it had to be sufficiently in advance of the wedding that (at the very least, imo) invitations could be sent out and various nobles could make the journey to the capital. 

So this infatuation happened when Rhaella was about 11 or 12, possibly younger depending on when the woods witch gave her prophecy. This was just my impression, but to me, it seemed like the woods witch gave her prophecy before Rhaella had even begun to menstruate, and she was betrothed (like Sansa) at 11, and not long after her first flowering, she and Aerys were wed (again in a situation very like Sansa’s).

Let’s say Rhaella was 11 during this infatuation, in about 251. Were Rhaella alive today in 300AC, she would be about 55 years old. 

Bonifer was “a young knight” so he was maybe 16 - 20. Let’s be generous and and say Bonifer was 17 in 251, given his great renown as “a jouster of some note”. (That means he would have had to establish a reputation with the tourney lance, so we need multiple tourneys, which takes time.) If he was 17 in 251, that means he would have been born in 234, which is about two or three years older than Barristan Selmy. (Note that Selmy was also crushing on a young maiden at a tourney in a similar situation. Significant age gaps between gallant knights and fair maidens are common in GRRM’s writing.) 

In 300AC, Bonifer is presumably in his late 60s, possibly early 70s. Does this jive with the descriptions we get in the text? Bonifer is described as “old” but it’s implied that he’s younger than the “ancient” Lord Estermont (King Robert’s grandfather), who must be in his 80s at least, possibly older. Jaime thinks of Bonifer as “old” and “withered”. (For comparison, Jaime’s father Tywin is around 58 when he dies, and Jaime never associates the word “old” with Tywin.) 

So anyways, I think it’s weird if you have a guy who is the equivalent of a senior in high school crushing on a little girl about the age of a 5th grader. If this infatuation had occurred when they were older, it wouldn’t be a significant age gap, but the way GRRM wrote it, it’s creepy. I get that GRRM was trying to make parallels with Dany and Sansa, but I think GRRM made a mistake when he made Rhaella younger than Aerys.

guess who’s back

technically, i’m on a hiatus but i think i’ve been more active on here than ever before. i wasn’t going to write this but @andyoumattertome, @justleavemebreathless and @turquoiseterrier have encouraged me so it’s happening. i don’t really know if what i say will make any sense but i’ll try.

corpsewraith replied to your post: DO NOT REBLOG POSTS TAGGED “PERSONAL”

I think that’s weird too. sometimes it feels kinda mocking or like they’re trying to share your failures with the rest of the internet, or you know… saving it just in case you delete the post/your blog so your sadness can outlive you.

the only thing I can think of is “I feel this too!” but I guess I’m not one of those people who typically will put their feelings on display in such a public place

but when that shit is entirely a “read more” and it has tags like “#personal” and “#go away” perhaps it should be treated as read-only

can you believe there are people on this site that will

  • make fifty posts complaining that the fandom is drawing a character the “wrong”way (aka fat)
  • reblog  people’s art and ask them not to tag it with [x] because that’s not how they’re supposed to be and ask them to tag it with #fake [x] 
  • compare drawing [x] fat to erasing canon sexualities
  • Say “I’m not fatphobic [x] is just meant to be skinny !” over and over again 
  • shit on cosplayers because they’re fat people cosplaying a character that’s “supposed” to be skinny
  • Act like they’re superior because they care about “canon” more

and then when the creator , who determines canon , states that [x] can be seen as fat , say “ i hope he knows he is ruining the best character who came out of the podcast” , “rip [x] 2014-2017″ and then making posts like

can you honestly imagine hating fat people that much 

shawn-and-aiden-frost-9  asked:

KdFd, Burn x Gazel & Tsurugi x Tenma ! :3

Hello! Thank you for asking! :)

(Also, a lot of these will contain headcanon stuff and will be more detailed then it should be  - sorry)

I decided to post every ship in a separate post so it wouldn’t be so long.

Also, for everyone who sent me a ship: I’m sorry that I’m so slow with these, but I will try to do them on the weekend.

Kidou x Fudou

who is more likely to hurt the other?

  • Fudou knows exactly how to get on Kidou’s nerves. But he also knows Kidou’s real weaknesses and how to hurt him. Sometimes when Kidou makes him really angry, he darts back with something really insulting and that causes real problemes sometimes.

who is emotionally stronger?

  • Kidou - he went through a lot, but he also found peace at Raimon. He knows that there’s a new chance for everyone and I guess that makes him stronger.

who is physically stronger?

  • Fudou

who is more likely to break a bone? 

  • Fudou- he would get in fights from time to time

who knows best what to say to upset the other? 

  • Fudou knows exactly how to get on Kidou’s nerves with one single word.

who is most likely to apologise first after an argument? 

  • Kidou. He just goes and sit down next to a still mad Fudou and waits for him to cool down. After that, he apologises, admitting that he was wrong in a short, professiannal and distant way.

who treats who’s wounds more often?

  • Kidou would treat Fudou’s wounds, since he would somehow always end up in small fights. Considering Fudou’s general attitude toward others, he isn’t much surprised though.

who is in constant need of comfort?

  • BOTH! But Fudou would be the one, who would show it more often.

who gets more jealous?

  • Fudou. He gets jealous for literraly ANYTHING and Kidou is so sick of it.

who’s most likely to walk out on the other?

  • Kidou - with his rational thinking and cool head, sometimes he would make decisions which would end up somehow letting Fudou down.

who will propose?

  • I don’t know, honestly… Maybe Kidou?

who has the most difficult parents?

  • Fudou

who initiates hand-holding when they’re out in public?

  • Both, but maybe Kidou would do it more often since Fudou wouldn’t be really fond of public affection.

who comes up for the other all the time?

  • Fudou literally lives at Kidou’s. When he has nowhere to go after getting kicked out of several apartments, he goes to Kidou’s.

who hogs the blankets?

  • Fudou - absolutely

who gets more sad?

  • Kidou, but he hides it quite well.

who is better at cheering the other up?

  • Fudou.

who’s the one that playfully slaps the other all the time after they make silly jokes?

  • Kidou.

who is more streetwise?

  • Fudou

who is more wise?

  • Hmm.. it’s a hard one. I would say both, but maybe Kidou is a little bit wiser.

who’s the shyest?

  • Kidou

who boasts about the other more?

  • Since Fudou would never ever admit to anyone that he is proud of Kidou - I would say Kidou. Maybe he would boast in a way as protecting the other when someone says something mean about Fudou. Kidou would just get really angry and tell the person to never judge by appereance nor attitude and just to get lost.

who sits on who’s lap?

  • Fudou on Kidou’s.

 Also, I’m sorry that this is halfly in conditional and halfly in indicative, I still hope you’ll enjoy it!

Just a quick heads up...

I hesitate to say that I’m 100% back, but for now at least I’m back. You know there’s that whole being a full time teacher who’s also in grad school thing.

I don’t know if I’ll be doing work on my Tony or Jared series’ right now, but gif drabbles and random crap that comes into my brain…yes!

Speaking of gifs…I still have several in my inbox from my 1k celebration that I will be working through. In particular, I got this relatively smutty/crack idea that I’m going to use at LEAST 3 of them for. So stay tuned for that in the relatively near future.

It’s important

(Sorry for mistakes! My English is not good enough for such a long post ^^” If you want me to fix any mistakes, send a message)

Hello followers!! Sorry for no posting for a while, and special thanks to everyone who stays with us ^^ Milchik is busy with studying, and I… I’m just lazy hehe.

Closer to the point. It’s sad to know but fusions are really making a lot of noise. It’s okay when people don’t clearly understand what do Milchik and I do. But I had a few disputes recently, and I feel like I have to make things clearer. All that is said here was said before, but… never late to repeat. There is listed just two problems, and I hope there won’t be more problems.

Offspring, next gens, shippings, etc
We have said this a lot of times. A lot of times. Fusions are not next generations of MLP. You may think that this is a shipping or an offspring, especially if you bought the fusion and it is your own character now. It’s all your choice. But we don’t make next gens or shipping foals, we make fusionsThe way we make fusions is not the way ponies’ genes work. You can make sure if you search for any MLP next gen tutorial. 

Fusions are not even two minds in one body. Fusions are new and original ponies, they are just… inspired by other ponies, I guess? It’s like merging bright traits of two ponies. Like… if two ponies were born the one. I hope you understand what do I mean. 

And still, you can make next gens the way we make fusions, and we can make fusions the way ponies’ genes work. Or combine those methods. Or something. Just leave us alone with all that stuff.

Different views on fusions
I know that we are unique in its kind blog, but we don’t think that our fusions are the only ones and the right ones. Actually, I like when people write how do they imagine fusions I’ve already made. Or even when people guess how would other ponies react to a fusion. And I like to see fusions made by other people.  It’s really interesting to know that every person has their personal view. 

You may say your opinion, but don’t impose us with it. This is our fusions. This is our views. If you have the other view and you think it is more correct than our, then make your own fusion. 

It may seem rude, but really. Fusions have to be creative and original, and I use all my imagination when I design them. That’s why I started to make fusions and why I keep on making them. Criticising fusions is comparable with saying ‘your imagination is not right’. 

That’s all. Thank you for attention. If you have any questions about my post, send a message. But remember that you shouldn’t argue with me. Don’t do that. 

Keep on inspiring us to make new fusions and have a good day ^^

I've been here since 2012 and my friend, who is like new to the fandom, told me about his fb last saturday, I didn't know it, with any of the boys, I didn't follow any of the pages, I didn't even know they had old stuff in it, because as soon as Niall started posting news from his solo projects, I also started following and didn't check his pics of posts. It's fucking facebook. You're not going to see an article saying "he hates 1d" because of it.

it’s funny because people are so quick to say the media perpetuates the harry vs. ot3 divide when in actuality, it’s users right here…on tumblr dot edu…who make up problems where they don’t exist….

awkwarddd | futzing blog post #1

guess who’s back in the ciiiiiiiiiity?! 

only the best sharpshooter known to man. or woman. or in between. boom, bullseye for equality.

i’ve been back, like, all of two minutes, and already barton has accused me of stealing his dog (totally didnt), saved his butt after he fell out a window (not even surprised tbh), and foiled a would-be ice thief (he was really, really hot)

scouted out some strike force douchebags too. TRY AND TRACE THIS MOTHERFUTZERS I KNOW COMPUTER STUFF NOW. but when i went to go tell barton about it, i had what is either the greatest moment or the most awkward of my entire life.

he’s banging black widow.

and i walked in on them.

i mean, im totally happy for them both. he deserves someone good (even if he thinks he doesnt) and natasha is like, the QUEEN of everything i wanna be someday. (though if i ever get a significant other, im gonna pick one who spends less time falling into dumpsters)

needless to say, it was v awkward all around, there was a lot of rambling (mostly from me and clint) and a LOT of nakedness (from clint AND natasha, #blessed) 

pizza dog still totally likes me best. but hes happy to be back with barton, for SOME crazy reason. (i am too, but like hell am i telling HIM that) 

got important hero stuff to do. bad guys to shoot, trick arrows to use, and coffee to drink. catch u futzers on the flipside.

EVERYONE GATHER ROUND it’s conspiracy theory time!!!

i thought of this awhile back but it’s time i finally make it a post

so does anyone remember that pic lauren montgomery posted on twitter after the election???

ok so this is a super adorable and sweet drawing, but i realized

could it be kIND OF foreshadowing?????

think about it. look at who’s holding which sign.

pidge is holding the gender sign. pidge’s gender played a huge role in season 1, when we found out she’s a girl DISGUISED as a boy.

keith is holding the race sign. everyone knows about keith’s huge arc in season 2 when it turned out hE’S GALRA AS FU CK

and look who’s holding the lgbt sign

L A N C E

keep in mind that ye we already knew pidge’s gender twist from season 1, but this pic came out in november, BEFORE keith being galra was revealed

not only that, but the two characters who dealt w those matters on the signs they’re holding are holding them with BOTH HANDS, minus allura, but i say that fits even more bc she DIRECTLY TRIED TO GET PIDGE to tell her she’s a girl

hunk, who’s holding the race sign with keith was one of the first paladins that was both accepting of and fascinated by him being part-galra as far as we know, which might be represented by the hand on keith’s shoulder

so given this, will lance canonically be bi/pan?

and if shiro comes back, (PLEASE DREAMWORKS) are we gonna have a bi/pan lance w supportive shiro?

i hope this wasnt looking too deeply and im hoping my theorys rIGHT but it probably wont be since it’s just a kinda dumb overthought conspiracy theory lmfao
