why am i never informed of these things

@leonawriter


“A flying wedding chapel…that’s a rather romantic venue, isn’t it?”

“‘Romantic’? I never thought I’d hear THAT word come out of your mouth. Are you feeling okay there?”

“What? Am I not allowed to think such a thing?”

“W-wait. You’re not finally thinking about settling down and getting married, are you?”

“Why do you always have to jump to such extreme conclusions? For your information, I have no intention of doing such a thing. …What about you, Wright?”

“No plans here for now, even if I wanted to…” (Well, at least I found out how Edgeworth feels about marriage. Not that it has anything to do with the case.)

Phoenix Wright had been turning that conversation over in his head ever since it happened. It wasn’t even important, he continually reminded himself, yet the incessant loop did not stop no matter his efforts to dismiss the conversation as locker room banter. The truth was, it stung. It shouldn’t have, he reasoned, but it did. He didn’t need a magatama to see what he was hiding- he had known how he felt about Edgeworth for a long time now. But at first he thought it was just a crush, and then Edgeworth left that note and disappeared, and then Phoenix was disbarred, and finally he thought he might be at a point where he could do something about his feelings when this happened. But Phoenix Wright had never in twenty-six years given up on Edgeworth and he was not going to now. So now, sitting in Edgeworth’s office, he had to find a way to bring up their previous conversation, to pry more deeply into what Edgeworth meant so he could gauge exactly how to deal with the unforthcoming man.

“Wright, don’t fiddle with that.”

“Sorry.” Phoenix straightened up the pieces on the chessboard that he had been fidgeting with. After he let his hands drop back to his sides Edgeworth shot him a glare and rearranged the pieces to their original positions- which to Phoenix looked identical to his positioning but were apparently different enough to matter.

Phoenix opened his mouth to start that conversation and then closed it. Nope, not the right time.

“Why don’t you go back to sitting on the couch where you can’t reach anything? Or must you entertain yourself wandering around my office touching things?”

“You could try a little harder to entertain me yourself. Do you know how hard it is to converse with someone who only responds in one word answers?”

“I’m busy, Wright.”

There was a pause. This would be the perfect time to bring that up. Yes, yes it would… He said nothing.

“Wright, don’t you have things to be doing-”

“What would you say if I told you Athena and Apollo were getting married?”

Edgeworth spit tea (rather inelegantly) a full foot forward. “WHAT!?”

“You got tea on your desk.” Edgeworth pulled a roll of paper towels from his desk drawer and began wiping at the drops of tea.

“You keep paper towels in your desk?”

“After you’ve come over enough times one learns to be prepared. Now what’s this about…Miss Cykes and Mr. Justice…getting married?”

Phoenix scratched the back of his head sheepishly. “They’re not actually getting married. I just wanted to know what you’d say if they were.”

Edgeworth frowned. “I’d say congratulations, naturally.”

This is not going the way I wanted it to. “Well yeah, but, would that be weird for you? I mean aren’t you kind of against marriage?”

“I am not against marriage. I’ve told you that. Although a marriage between your colleagues would be unsettling, it would be for entirely different reasons.”

Of course I know that! Hit ‘em with false charges and the truth will always come out!

It took about three seconds for the ensuing silence to become awkward.

This isn’t working.

“Well if you’re not against marriage, how come you never want to get married?”

“Being fundamentally opposed to something it and not wanting it for yourself are too completely different things. I appreciate marriage as a legal union between two people who love each other. It’s just not what I want.”

“Yeah, but what if you just think you don’t want to be married? I bet you’re probably yearning deep down for companionship and just never acknowledged it.”

“You’re absolutely right-”

“Of course I’m Wright.”

“Wipe that silly grin off your face. You’re absolutely right, I am so deeply lonely that I actively choose to distance myself from those around me to focus on my work.”

“Was that sarcasm? Because it kind of sounded like sarcasm but it’s true-”

“Of course it was sarcasm. As usual, Wright, you have looked at the facts and jumped to completely the wrong conclusion.”

“That may be true, but I always come to the truth at the end.” Phoenix grinned, hands on his hips triumphantly.

Edgeworth crossed his arms. “The only truth is that I am not in need of companionship.”

“Oh, come on. Even Manfred von Iceberg needed companionship.”

“What?”

“Franziska had a mom, right? I’m assuming she wasn’t dropped out of the sky by God himself? And she has an older sister, so Mrs. von Karma and Manfred must’ve even slept together at least twice-”

“Get out of my office.”

“Sorry, sorry! I’m just pointing out that fact.”

“A fact that I would rather not have been pointed out.”

“Okay, but anyway, what if the right person- or should I say the “Wright” person -comes along and you change your mind?”

“Are you still on about the topic of marriage? Why the sudden interest?”

Phoenix bit his lip. “Just curious. A little curiosity is good for the mind.”

“Curiosity killed the cat, if not what little ‘mind’ you yet possess.”

“Rude. But you didn’t answer my question.”

“Intentionally.”

“But what’s so bad about marriage?”

Edgeworth sighed. “Nothing is wrong with marriage, Wright. I just don’t feel the need to tie myself to someone legally, financially, or emotionally. I’ve never felt the need for romantic interaction. I am happy exactly the way I am. Do I make myself clear? Or at least clear enough to change the topic of conversation?”

Phoenix swallowed. “Right. Got it. I should probably get back to the office. It doesn’t matter anyway.” Edgeworth grabbed Phoenix’s jacket from where he had left it and was just about to hand it to him when he froze. A single, solitary psycho-lock had suddenly appeared directly over Phoenix’s chest. Edgeworth’s mind had to reach far back into the past, to a snowy temple on a mountain, to remember what it was for.

Phoenix froze too. And swallowed, his throat suddenly dry. Apologizing for he wasn’t even sure what, he carefully took his jacket and left the room, feeling as if in a daze. The door closed behind him.

For a moment Edgeworth just stood there, and then he immediately sat back down at his desk and called Maya. She listened with barely repressed squeals until he finished explaining.

“Oh. My God. Edgeworth. Genius who started prosecuting at the age of 20. Went to the top law school in the western hemisphere. Studied under a man who went undefeated in court for forty years.”

“Your point?” Edgeworth huffed.

“Can’t figure out something as simple as 2+2! I can’t believe you honestly have no idea what’s going on!”

“Right, well, any time you could stop making fun of me and explain this apparently obvious situation?” He quipped, sounding a bit miffed.

“Right, right, of course. Edgeworth, ever since you guys were nine, Nick has basically dedicated his life to you. He chose to study law just so he could meet you. He made a pink scrapbook filled with everything he could find about you even while you refused to speak to him. And then he found you, and you were so much more hurt than he remembered, so he did everything he could to figure out why, and he solved DL-6, and then you left that note and disappeared and he was so depressed he couldn’t even bear to hear someone say your name. And then you reappeared, and you helped him get his badge back, which is basically his entire life. And after all that, you go and say something like ‘there’s no need to tie yourself to someone emotionally’.”

Edgeworth stayed quiet, unsure what this all meant. These emotions were too complicated to understand.

“Don’t you see? Nick has been emotionally tied to you so strongly for the past, what, 26 years? And you just go and say there’s no need for that. He’s hurt. You don’t even know how much he loves you, Edgeworth.”

Time stopped. The room was spinning and Edgeworth could hardly breathe. He felt far too much like he had inside of that elevator all those years ago; panicked, cornered. But there was something there that wasn’t there before: a strange warmth that felt like it was coming right from inside his stomach and spreading outward. It was so shocking, so unfamiliar.

Edgeworth was normally very good at controlling his thoughts, his emotions, organizing them and creating order so he could address each clearly. But now they were scattered everywhere, running at a million miles per hour, and he could only grab onto a single one. Love. She said love. ‘You don’t even know how much he loves you’. Love. He loves me.

After a moment, Maya spoke again. “And now you’re sitting at your desk having a heart attack from all the emotions, unsure of what this all means and unable to cope with it. Calm, Edgeworth. Did you watch the episode of the Steel Samurai that the re-ran last night? The twist ending is so good, I’m surprised every time!”

In, out. In out. “Personally I find the ending of that episode a bit contrived. The first time it aired I saw it coming from a mile away.”

“Good. Do you remember how to breathe again?”

“I don’t need to be reminded how to breathe.”

“Sure.”

Edgeworth tried to play back everything Maya had mentioned in a reasonably organized fashion, the past 26 years of his and Wright’s lives together. He had never thought of the events from Wright’s perspective before, so to hear Maya describe them cast a totally new light on them. When he had been studying under von Karma, starting his career as a prosecutor, all Wright was was a painful reminder of his past that he tried desperately to block out. Wright kept reaching out to him and he never understood why. And after that Wright insisted on getting involved in Edgeworth’s trial and DL-6 and Edgeworth never understood why. And when he came back after running away Phoenix forgave him, and he never understood why. And then Wright was disbarred and he never reached out to Edgeworth, and Edgeworth never understood why. In 26 years he never once asked why.

He still didn’t quite understand, but with Maya’s narrative it was becoming easier to see things Wright’s way. Wright was dedicated to him. He was important to Wright. Wright wanted so much to help Edgeworth when he needed it and wanted so much not to let Edgeworth see when Wright himself needed help. And slowly, Edgeworth came to understand that Maya was right. He wasn’t sure if love was the right word, but he recognized, just a little bit, what Wright had done for him all those years. Reaching even farther back in his memory, he recalled the way his father made him feel when he was a child. Safe, secure, comfortable, confident, loved. And he finally realized that Wright made him feel the same way. Wright loved him.

Eventually he remembered he was still on the phone with Maya. He spoke slowly, choosing his words with care. “But what…what does my friendship with Wright have to do with my views on marriage? Why would my lack of desire to get married show that he has something to hide?”

He could practically see Maya’s blank stare on the other end. “And here I thought we were making progress,” she said drily.

“After saying it out loud I’m beginning to see the connection. Are you saying that…Wright…loves me? On another level than platonically? That he wants to…marry me?

“That sounds like a conversation that should not involve me. I mean, it should, because I’m gonna be the maid of honor, but I also feel like Nick should-”

“Miss Fey!”

“What?!”

“This is the first I’m hearing about Wright’s possibly non-platonic feelings and you think it’s an appropriate time to plan our wedding?!”

“Well, ok, I can see why you’d need some time to plan, but I’m totally going to be the maid of honor-”

“Miss Fey.”

“Ok, sorry. Back on topic. I’m not saying you gotta go marry the guy right now, but think about how you’re feeling. Because I think that even though you say you have no need for emotional bonds you’ve never even realized what a strong one you have with Nick, and how much it means to you.”

As much as Edgeworth wanted to deny it, the moment she said it everything fell into place and he knew she was incontrovertibly right. To put it plainly, if anything could be plain in this mess, he didn’t know what his life would be without Wright, and he didn’t want to know.

“I suppose I should go talk to him.”

“Uh, yeah, dummy.”

Just as Maya was about to hang up Edgeworth spoke.

“Miss Fey, there’s one more thing that’s been bothering me. …Why was there only one psycho-lock? This seems to be a fairly big thing to be hiding.”

“Pysche-locks don’t necessarily show the size of the secret, remember? They show how deeply buried it is. And, well, Nick’s always kept his emotions really close to the surface. He wears his heart on his sleeve, which is why it’s so incredible that you actually had no idea this whole time. Anyway, sounds to me like…Nick’s been wanting you to notice for a long time.”

“…Thank you.”

“Any time.”

Edgeworth knocked on the door of the Wright Anything Agency, where Athena answered the door. Signs of worry creased both her and Widget’s features.

“Are you here to see Mr. Wright? He’s in his office.” She stepped aside to let Edgeworth inside. He approached the door to Wright’s office and, knocking softly first, opened the door and entered.

Phoenix was stretched out along the couch, jacket and magatama strewn carelessly across the floor. Edgeworth was painfully reminded of how Wright looked when he was disbarred.

Phoenix sat up abruptly when he heard the door open. “Edgeworth!”

Edgeworth swallowed. “Wright.”

“What are you doing here?”

“I came to apologize for earlier. I see what I said may have upset you-”

“You sound like a customer service call. Why did you actually come here?”

Carefully, Edgeworth took a seat on the opposite edge of the couch.

“I came here to say…I appreciate everything you’ve done for me over the course of our friendship. Your friendship is very important to me.” Somehow, he couldn’t make himself say what he knew Phoenix wanted to hear, but to see the look that emerged on Phoenix’s face was like seeing the sun shine for the first time.

“Thanks, Edgeworth. That really means a lot to me.”

They were silent for a moment.

“Maya said you loved me.”

What?!

Edgeworth froze, unable to believe that the first time he had ever said anything without thinking was for this. He tried to keep his voice steady.

“I- I called her. She said that you loved me.”

“Love.”

“What?”

“Nothing. Is this a dream? Pinch me.”

“I am not going to pinch you. …But I am going to break your psycho-lock.” He grabbed the magatama off the floor before Phoenix could react and held it before him, watching as the psyche-lock appeared. Phoenix’s eyes widened in shock at the sudden move.

“What are you doing?!”

“Why did you just say ‘love’?”

“It was just a slip of the tongue.”

“Usually slips of the tongue don’t involve entire words.”

“Fine. I was correcting you. You said ‘loved’. You meant ‘love’ as in present tense.”

Edgeworth hesitated. The psyche-lock didn’t budge.

Phoenix met Edgeworth’s eyes. “You’re a very important friend to me, you know that? Maya’s right. I love you. Now put that down.”

Edgeworth smirked. “Finally getting a taste of your own medicine.”

Phoenix sighed. “Come on. If you want to know how I really feel, I’ll just tell you. You don’t need to pry it out of me. I’m not you, you know.”

Edgeworth shot Phoenix a look but set the magatama down nonetheless.

“To tell you the truth, Edgeworth, I was upset when you said you weren’t interested in emotional ties and romance and all that because…well, because I always valued how close our friendship is. And I…I wanted to be closer. I’ve never had this kind of relationship with anyone before. I feel like you know me better than I know myself sometimes, and I know it’s true the other way around. I don’t want this with anyone else. So yes, I love you, but not in the same way that I love Trucy, or Maya, or Apollo and Athena. I mean, I love you in those ways too, in that you’re a good friend and you feel like family, but also…the other way. I guess it doesn’t really matter though, because you don’t want the same thing.” His gaze had fallen to the carpet, and he didn’t look up.

“Of course it matters, Wright. Your feelings are never invalid. And it’s true that I’m not ready to think about such things as marriage, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want the same things.” Phoenix looked up sharply to meet his gaze, and Edgeworth could feel himself blushing.

“…What are you saying?”

“I’m saying that I’m just realizing now that for a long time I’ve felt the same. I just never knew what it was. Phoenix Wright, I do not understand love. I don’t know what it is or how to define it. But if it’s what I think it is I am sure I feel it for you.”

Phoenix placed his hand on Edgeworth’s shoulder, laughing. “That was the most roundabout confession I’ve ever heard.” Edgeworth felt like laughing too, although he had no idea why.

Just then a knock sounded at the door and Athena, led by Trucy, shyly looked in. Widget was glowing the brightest green either of them had ever seen.

“What’s going on in here? It feels like the room is about to explode from all the good feelings in here!”

Edgeworth smiled. “Miss Cykes, I have just remembered what happiness is.”

“I told you he was proposing to Daddy!” Trucy squealed with delight and Edgeworth and Phoenix both gasped.

Apollo, who had appeared behind the two girls, yanked the door shut in front of all of them. “Leave them alone, you guys! That is definitely not what’s happening here!”

As the sound of the squabbling children faded, the office became quiet.

“So, uh, there’s something else I’ve been wanting to do for a while now,” Phoenix started.

Edgeworth looked at him. “What would that be?”

Slowly, Phoenix leaned forward and planted a soft, gentle kiss on Edgeworth’s lips. After a moment of uncertainty, Edgeworth kissed back. Whatever this was, it was right.

Agents of Shield Season 4 Episode 15 Self Control - Theories Updated

So, I posted theories about who could be LMDs on the base yesterday but some (or all) of those theories could be wrong because I was missing some very important information. The episode I saw had some glitch which is why I missed a few seconds towards the end of the episode. The idiot that I am, I thought I hadn’t missed anything important. Turns out I had, the very important part where Fitz’s tech informs Fitzsimmons and the viewers that there are 4 LMDs in the chamber.

But here’s the thing, I still don’t quite buy that though it does make me make some changes to my theories. I still think Daisy is a misdirect because when have the AoS writers been so straightforward with information? Ummm, let me see, Never.

Which leads to this: either Fitz or Simmons is an LMD. Here’s why: I think either Fitz of Simmons is an LMD and I think one of them modified the chamber sensors to give the wrong diagnosis. It is far too convenient who the LMDs are and the promo goes to great lengths to suggest that this is the case. But if that were true, why not show Daisy also strapped to a machine like the other 3 in the image below:

Because the audience is being set-up. We are being to led to believe that Coulson, Mace, Mack and Daisy have been switched for LMDs and Fitz and Simmons are next on their list. Except that’s far too obvious.

The other thing that makes me think that the writers are setting us up is that we never see Mace or Coulson give Daisy or Mack any instructions. For a show that declared the 4 of them as LMDs, why be shy in that regard in the promo?

The alternative theory I have is that all 4 of them are LMDs but somehow Daisy escapes being put in the Framework and is on the run and we have this image from the promo:

She’s not wearing her uniform and her gauntlets are off and we know that she only took them off when she had gone rogue. She’s wearing what looks like an ill-fitting grey top. Now, if this were a scene from Daisy in the Framework, it would look ideal, so she would be dressed the way she normally is. So, it’s possible, that the Daisy on base is an LMD but then the real Daisy manages to make it bust the remaining human agents out before the LMDs get them. Even the setting is vague, it could be the bad guys lair or the base with the power cut off.

I have a feeling that writers will spend the first half of the episode selling the “they’re all LMDs”  only to turn it on its head close to the middle of the episode before all hell breaks lose.

Gaslighting Definition, Mental/Emotional Abuse Techniques & Being Gaslighted, used by Feminists & SJWs

Are You a Victim of Gaslighting Emotional Abuse?

According to author and psychoanalyst Robin Stern, Ph.D., the signs of being a victim of gaslighting emotional abuse include:

  1. You are constantly second-guessing yourself.
  2. You ask yourself, “Am I too sensitive?” a dozen times a day.
  3. You often feel confused and even crazy at work.
  4. You’re always apologizing 
  5. You can’t understand why, with so many apparently good things in your life, you aren’t happy
  6. You frequently make excuses
  7. You find yourself withholding information from friends and family so you don’t have to explain or make excuses.
  8. You know something is terribly wrong, but you can never quite express what it is, even to yourself.
  9. You start lying to avoid the put downs and reality twists.
  10. You have trouble making simple decisions.
  11. You have the sense that you used to be a very different person - more confident, more fun-loving, more relaxed.
  12. You feel hopeless and joyless.
  13. You feel as though you can’t do anything right.

Signs, Symptoms of Mental Abuse in Children

Mental abuse in children can result in:

  • Relationship difficulties – emotional abuse leads to a lack of trust in the parent and this follows through the rest of the relationships in life. Without a positive early relationship on which to base others, emotionally abused children may choose not to have relationships or continually get into other abusive relationships because they don’t know what a non-abusive relationship is like.
  • Feelings of being worthless or damaged in some way – emotionally abused children are typically told they are no good so frequently that they come to believe it. This can lead to un-fulfilling adult roles as the person feels they are not worth a good education or job.
  • Trouble regulating emotions – because emotionally abused children are often punished for expressing their emotions, they never learn how to express them in a reasonable, safe way. This leads to emotions coming out in unpredictable ways such as in anger, depression or anxiety.

Signs, Symptoms of Emotional and Mental Abuse in Adults

While children often physically cannot escape their abuser, many adults feel as though they cannot escape their abuser either. Mentally abusive relationships involve chipping away at a person’s self-esteem to the point where they don’t feel they deserve anything better than the abuse and they feel that without the abuser, they have nothing.

Signs of mental abuse in relationships take many forms. Mental abuse symptoms can revolve around:

  • Dominance – the abuser needs to feel in charge 
  • Humiliation – the abuser puts others down by embarrassing them
  • Isolation – the abuser segregates person(s) from others in order to increase dependence
  • Threats – the abuser makes threats to make person(s) feel unsafe
  • Intimidation – the abuser indicates that if you do not obey, there will be dire consequences
  • Denial and blame – the abuser denies the abuse and blames other(s) for “making” them do it

Mentally abusive relationships can be of any type and involve either gender.

Characteristics of Emotionally Abusive Men and Women

Emotionally abusive men and women are of all different types but some common characteristics are found among many of the abusers. Emotional abusers tend to believe they are “owed” by everyone and thus everyone (including their victim) should give them what they want. This makes them feel entitled to give orders, control and abuse in order to get what they want. Similarly, emotionally abusive people tend to be self-centered to the point where they feel they can, and should, tell others what they are thinking and feeling.

Other characteristics of emotionally abusive men and women include:   

  • Low self-esteem – some abusers abuse others to make themselves feel good about themselves, although some people feel that the opposite is true in many cases.  
  • Rush into relationships – some abusers enter relationships and claim “love at first sight” very quickly, perhaps fearing being alone.
  • Extreme jealousy – an abuser may see jealousy as a sign of love rather than possessiveness.
  • Having unrealistic expectations or demands – an abuser will demand that the victim be the perfect spouse, lover and friend and fill every need, even when this isn’t reasonable or healthy.
  • Create isolation – an abuser will work to cut off ties to the victim to keep the victim completely centered on the abuser.
  • Have poor communication skills – abusers may have trouble with open conversations about their feelings so they abuse instead.
  • Are hypersensitive – abusers often take the slightest action as a personal attack.
  • Appear charming to others – abusers tend to hide all their abusive behaviors in other scenarios so that the victim is the only one that sees their abusive side making it very difficult for the victim to reach out for help 

And although emotionally abusive people set out to purposefully hurt victims, they often minimize their role and blame the victim for the abuse. “She made me do it,” or “he should have known not to talk to me when I was in that kind of mood.” Abusers often claim they have no control over their abusive behaviors.

Personality Disorders &Emotionally Abusive Men & Women

It is also known that many emotionally abusive men and women have a type of mental illness known as a personality disorder. Personality disorders are estimated to affect about 10-15% of the population. In the case of a personality disorder, a person develops hurtful and maladaptive patterns of thought and behavior that are consistent throughout their lifetime.

Three personality disorders are linked to emotionally abusive behavior are:   

  • Narcissistic personality disorder – this disorder involves the perception of being grandiose and requiring the admiration of others. People with narcissistic personality disorder exaggerate their own accomplishments, have a sense of entitlement, exploit others, lack empathy, envy others and are arrogant.   
  • Antisocial personality disorder – this disorder shows a pattern of disregard for the rights of others and the rules of society. People with antisocial personality disorder tend to lie, be aggressive, disregard safety, violate the law and have a lack of remorse.
  • Borderline personality disorder – this disorder involves intense and unstable relationships, self-perception and moods. People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) tend to have poor impulse control. People with BPD frantically avoid abandonment, are impulsive, are suicidal or self-harming, feel empty, feel inappropriate anger and may be paranoid.

I hope you people who are convinced you are some counter-culture radicals soon realize you are being manipulated, mentally abused and gaslighted by the establishment.

Ace Discourse

Thank you all for commenting and sharing your ideas, views, feelings, and opinions to my question:

Why are Aces not considered apart of the LGBTQ+ community?

You guys have given me much insight and have taught me a few things. Like the new acronym I never heard of, LGBTPN. And I also see that a lot of work still needs to be done. I still don’t understand how an Asexual is considered straight, but you guys have given me interesting information. 

I appreciate everyone’s time they took to comment on this and I am starting to see a pattern and similar answers to the responses. You guys have said and shared your part and I’ve done some too. Therefore I see no reason to further continue this. Way too much hate and hostility for my liking.

Thank you all again.

You are the stars and light. I am interested in astronomy, maybe if I study the background information, stare a little longer, more stars will appear, and will spell out the things I never knew about you. All of my curiosities and questions will form a clear constellation and I’ll finally understand you. I’ll understand why everything had to be this way. I miss your voice, I miss you. I miss the way you used to say my name, and the way your eyes lit up when I said yours.

Want to know how sexism around video games effects me? Heres a new way that came into my life today- 

I was informed that I know little to nothing about video games and that’s why I shouldn’t be on Game Grumps.

I play video games daily. Every day. I would even venture to say that I play more video games than half of the Game Grumps cast - but I am the one being singled out?

The amount of hate that I get from the Game Grumps community is insane. I have never been approached by an unhappy fan EVER in all of my con appearances and such, which leads me to believe this is just a “vocal minority” thing.

I can understand people saying “well, shes just not funny”-Everyone has a different sense of humor - and I am NEW to this! All of the guys have hundreds, if not thousands of episodes on me- I can only hope to achieve 1/10th of their skills- these things will come with time.

 First and foremost game grumps was a show about friends hanging out and playing video games - when was being funny a prerequisite?

I don’t believe anyone on Game Grumps deserves the hate we get. We make a show for fun, to have fun. Why make it about something else?

3 things about your personality:

1) Not only do I have a naturally loud voice, I also just enjoy talking.

2) I am a very sarcastic person. It’s not a defense mechanism or anything I just am.

3) despite anxiety disorders and ADD, I never have to fake happiness. I am generally very happy and I can be made happy just by being with my friends and seeing them smile. That’s why when I’m usually alone when I’m upset.

sorry if that was too much information but thanks for the ask :)

If Slayers main party was sorted into Harry Potter houses

I’ve seen some debate about it and usually it’s if Lina would be in Gryffindor or Slytherin. I actually think she would be in neither house. The houses are made for what people value the most and I do not think Lina nessecerily values courage nor cunning. Hear me out.

Lina: I think Lina would be sorted into Ravenclaw and here is why….. It is true Lina has traits from Gryffindor and Slytherin, but her ultimate thing is knowledge because knowledge is how she works her magic. In the first season it was about the philosopher’s stone and later Zanaffer. In Next, her whole quest is revolving around getting her hands on copies of the Claire bible which contain information nessecary to cast spells or make them more accurate. It included knowledge on the Lord of Nightmares. (Try was more about her being forced to save the world by Luna.)

Now if she never valued this kind of knowledge I am not sure she would have even invented Giga slave in the first place, as she did experiments before hand. In the Slayers world sorcerers have to be educated via a school and Lina had gone through this herself. She is also always shown explaining things to people, as the role of the teacher with knowledge. This is true in offshoots like Light Magic and in the first season, among the other official extra images of her as a teacher.

She is likewise depicted as able to keep up with Rezo, who is a bit of a “scientist” of that world. Naga has a similar personality but she is more ditzy and business oriented than Lina.

Ravenclaw is also the house of quirky and eccentric people, Lina definitely is far from being an average person let alone your average magic user.

Gourry: Gryffindor, definitely. Gourry is not big on cunning, knowledge, and while he has some traits of hardwork, he is far more about courage. Gryffindor is the “hero” house and Gourry fits that role a lot. In fact he only really seems to do bad when influenced by Lina or black mailed.

Gourry certainly doesn’t show that much fear in the face of enemies. With the exception of Lina. He is also in the business of protecting people and seems to enjoy being Lina’s body guard. Plus, his physical prowless is amazing. If he could remember spells, he would be just as powerful as Lina.

Zel: He would be sorted into Slytherin. Zel is just as capable as Lina is about knowledge, but he seems to use his in more cunning ways and is quite ambitious about fixing his body. For example, in Slayers Revolution he devises many traps based on complex calculations to catch Pokota so he could get information out of him.

Zel seems to hate mazoku such as Xellos but doesn’t mind being called evil. In fact he fully embraces being called an evil sorcerer in Slayers Try. He loves it. While this is not a specific trait of Slytherin and both Slytherins and Ravenclaws have been known to embrace the “darkside” for different reasons, I think it is an interesting point. Also, Zel will forgo some group things because he is uninterested as seen in the jar episode of Try. He is very assertive and many Slytherins are as well. Likewise, he is resourceful, maybe in part to do with his body, but still gets the job done without having as much magic power as Lina. As well as having both physical and magical power.

Amelia: Definitely Hufflepuff. In fact in the sorting hat’s song it mentions that Hufflepuffs are “just and loyal”. Amelia is all about justice and loyalty. Well, I think the justice thing is self-explanatory to anyone who watches the show or reads the novels. She is always trying to do the right thing and she works extremely hard at it, just as Hufflepuffs are not afraid of hard work.

Her loyalty to her family and friends is a very admirable trait. She remains loyal to Lina and Zel, despite the fact they can be on the other side of the moral spectrum at times. (Though she will stop Zel from being a villian if he goes too far.) She seems to value her family a lot, especially her father, but I suspect her sister too, in the subtle hints we’re given. Amelia is all about responsibility to her duties and she also works pretty hard at them, as we see during her off time when she is not fighting evil as an ally of justice.

Naga: Slytherin, and not just because she is Naga the serpent, either. But because though she is ditzy at times, she can switch sides to be against Lina as we have seen in Slayers Platinum, the oavs, and some novels. (In Slayers Special Naga even wanted to kill the last of the mer people for money until Lina stopped her.) Sometimes for Naga, it’s simply the side who pays the most. (She does not seem to care as much about doing the right thing unlike her dad and sis. She even goes too far for Lina.)

On top of the fact that she is ambitious about money and attacks Lina because of sweet business deals or over treasure, she displays cunning or what you could call, an attempt at cunning. Her plans seems to backfire. But she is always trying to fight “dirty” and trick Lina. Such as the time she set Lina’s clothes on fire as a challenge and inadvertently burned the entire hotel down.

Naga is ambitious in glory and nobility too, and many prideful nobles seem to be in Slytherin. One of Naga’s crowning moments is the entire fiasco with Serena, where she laid down the royal slap. Then converted everyone to the greatness that is Naga.


That’s what I got now. I need to maul over Filia and Pokota too. Well, we could exclude Filia too since she is not human either….. But cannot seem to place Pokota atm. Xellos is excluded because he isn’t human, but he may be a Slytherin.

The Witch

There is a new movie coming out soon called the “The Witch”. I am not offended by this common entertainment plot line that presents us with a witch playing the villain. Can be, and are, witches who practice with a darker flare. I am actually excited to see this period horror film!

However…

On the official trailer poster by Facebook, I read the most hatful and ignorant posts. Young witches voiced their hurt from the stereotypical portrayal. And what did the masses do? They laughed. They references AHS:Coven, saying then men and women where hipsters and crazy. Blunt bashing. On the flip side witches where commenting hurtful and incorrect information as well. One witch said these girls where not witches Bc it it has to be passed down a bloodline.

I’m am just disgusted by the things I read. These are prime examples as to why I can never be honest about my craft. For fear of mockery. I usually don’t pay too much mind to Facebook. However I felt I should warn my lovely brothers and sisters who may be interested on exploring The Witch Facebook page. Stay calm and rise above.

Love, Lunamar

I just realized that there are many of you on here who have never had to store information on a floppy disk or write it to a CD due to your hard drive only having so much space and flash drive and SD cards weren’t a thing yet and you’ve probably never downloaded mp3s of anime songs and video game music from limewire to burn your own CDs and you’ve never had to wait five minutes for a Flash cartoon to load and you probably don’t know what YTMND is and you don’t remember sprite comics or Albinoblacksheep and you don’t remember when Youtube was new. NEW. YOUTUBE WAS NOT ALWAYS A PART OF THE INTERNET AND I REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS NEW OH MY GOSH I AM ACTUALLY FREAKING OUT A LITTLE
