why are things happening the way they are

Something I find super interesting about shows like iasip is that, yes, it’s clear that the writers want you to interpret and analyze what happens in the show, while other times things are improvised or done purely for the sake of comedy. every time something like that happens it either fits into the ways we already interpret a character, or it completely adds to their entire characterization. It makes me glad that the show has been on the air and consistently good for so long because it means that the buildup of random tidbits in the show really gives the characters a lot of depth and makes them out to be complete characters rather than characters with only one distinct personality trait. I think that’s why the show has gained such a large following especially in the past few years; not only do we relate to the character’s dysfunctionality but also their multidimensional character traits. 

SIREN REVIEW #0003 : Black Crow : Eamon Brown

[Submission post]

[Backstory post]

I can’t remember the last time I nearly cried while reading something. I wasn’t emotionally attached to Airi at all when I read through this, she was only mentioned once and that was in the beginning.

So why did I nearly cry when I read the end?

Let me tell you why. Because you have a good flow.

You didn’t rush to submit this. The way you wrote the whole thing shows you gave the right amount of focus to Eamon’s backstory, just enough to grab the reader’s attention and at the same time have them continue wanting to know what happens next. The right focus, without going all over the place. His change of character was realistic, believable and, somewhat relatable (you know, if you were an orphaned siren yourself).You even used the idea from the little doodle I did for your sketchdump! I smiled so much at that, it made such a good build up for his attitude towards his job.

Originally, when you first submitted, I’d already liked the idea that Eamon adapted the role of a kind of Angel of Death for both good and evil. And honestly it’s a good thing that you decided to put them separately because the cluster of information probably wouldn’t have much of an impact as they did now. In light of the recent age meme as well, there’s something about his smile that says everything about your written backstory. A lot of pain you can’t really see behind it, and I love it.

And the fact that you even wanted to expand on his character in such detail makes me so happy- you didn’t submit just for the sake of submitting. Not for the sake of getting art. You gave heart. So thank you for that, because it really matters so much for content creators like me to know you have so much love for making and developing your own character in our world.

Thank you for joining us, and I hope to see more of this angel around.

What the hell is happening to KPOP?

Why the hell would anyone want to hurt someone like that? wtf  is wrong with those antis? GROW UP. 
Even if it were some sick way to gain attention, this is not right. He is a human being and he is well aware of the things happening around him. How would he feel if he read those sick sick death threats? what the hell is wrong with you people? Where the hell are your ethics? I’m sure you have none, so go tell your mamas to teach you some dammit

Two sisters I deeply appreciate and love for the sake of Allaah hurt me in ways I can't comprehend. And I don't know how to feel, what to believe, what to say. I just feel like being on my own for a long time. I can't bear the thought of people i thought were my friends for the sake of Allaah could hurt me in such a way. I find myself cursing myself for being so naive and trusting them so much. I don't know what to do. Please advice me, how do I get over this?

It takes time. The first day is pain - throbbing pain and lots of tears and worst of all: disappointment. I’m sorry that you hurt and I’m sorry people you trusted hurt you.

Allaah has His way of why things happen and how they happen, but rest assured there is wisdom in it all. الحمدلله علي كل حال.

Seek out your Lord through sincere prayers and ask Him to calm your heart and to forgive you and them and to make a way out for you from this difficulty. Ask Him to remove the negative and bad people from your life and to surround you only with the righteous.

May Allaah make a way out for all of us from all difficulties and to grant us patience and heightened eemaan in making it through our trials.

If you find Jesus’s response offensive, please at least consider this: If someone says to you, “The main problem in your life is not what’s happened to you, not what people have done to you; your main problem is the way you’ve responded to that”—ironically, that’s empowering. Why? Because you can’t do very much about what’s happened to you or about what other people are doing—but you can do something about yourself. When the Bible talks about sin it is not just referring to the bad things we do. It’s not just lying or lust or whatever the case may be—it is ignoring God in the world he has made; it’s rebelling against him by living without reference to him. It’s saying, “I will decide exactly how I live my life.” And Jesus says that is our main problem.

MAN speaking as someone who was tHERE when the onceler thing happened i gotta say that

“[x] is the new onceler” rarely even touches the scale that the onceler had.

it was more than a bunch of people thirsting after a fictional character in good harmless fun that made the onceler the onceler.

it was the fact that a character from a really unremarkable movie became such a phenomenon overnight in such a bizarre way.

that people started drawing him fucking alternate universe versions of himself. because there was no one else attractive enough in the movie to make him fuck, maybe. i still dont understand why oncest ever became a thing.

it was 800 different ask blogs for 800 different AU versions of the onceler and then those versions of the onceler would fuck. 

it was 15 year old me unfollowing half my dash because i was sick of seeing onceler cock everywhere

and it came and went so suddenly i have never seen anything like that in all my years of interneting

wherethewafflesat  asked:

I'm feeling like something big/ important is going to happen this episode and thats party why the promo is only focusing on the possible reveal of Schmidts name since usually they say what's in the upcoming episode. I dont know maybe I'm just wishful thinking but it seems like the usual pattern given the way they described the mars landing episode and the cooler episode

I’m kinda thinking the same thing but I felt the same 😂 Didn’t want to get my hopes up! The break up happens but I wonder if more crazy stuff will go down.. I hope so!

Any chance you’re considering a future in politics?
It does interest me. I actually studied political science and communications in college. It was really hard which is probably why I want to sing and dance. This is a lot more fun, but I feel like things are coming full circle. Once you do a little growing up and look at the news and say “wow, I’m not OK with a lot of stuff that’s happening,” it’s hard not to look the other way. I’ve shifted my negatives into positives but that needs to happen for everyone—I can’t be the only one who feels this way so I want to do everything I can to help.

I went from “Johnlock becoming canon in series 4 is going to happen, let me explain why” to “Moriarty is going to interrupt Friday’s BBC News broadcast to leak extended footage of Sherlock series 4 which will make President Trump’s inauguration the second-most important thing to watch that day, let me explain why”.

I’m cackling over here, I’m having way too much fun. 

It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Samwise Gamgee and I want to send love to anyone who is struggling tonight. I know there’s a lot of people scared and hurting about the US Presidential elections.

PROPOSALS

▹ pairing: Jeongguk x reader
▹ words: 18,102 I’m so sorry 
▹ genre: smut, fluff, light angst, friends to lovers

You and Jeongguk propose at restaurants to get free food, but somewhere along the way you start to fall for him.


You never thought Jeongguk would actually take you up on the whole fake proposals thing. When you had suggested the idea to him, he’d just laughed and said “yeah”, then continued playing Fallout 4. You hadn’t actually meant it; the idea was one of those you vaguely imagine it happening, but not really, which is why when he brought it up weeks later suggesting you try it out, you thought he was kidding. 

He wasn’t, and this is how you end up in one of the city’s nicer restaurants on a fake date with your best friend.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.

“No! It’s not happening.”  

“C'mon. It’s harmless. Seriously, it’d be like a chill thing.”

“No, Yoongi. There’s no way I’m doing that.”

“Why not? There’s seriously no ill feelings behind it, I only need them for a little bit and then you’ll get it back.”

“Why can’t you take no for an answer, Loser. I’m not giving you my underwear. Bye.”  

Yoongi sighed as he followed you outside of the house party to the backyard. The music pounded through the walls from inside, blaring fast beats and obscene profanities, echoing past numerous houses down the street. The cold air hit your cheeks that were tinted red from the alcohol and the heat of the copious amounts of bodies ‘bumping and grinding’ on one another.  

Even outside, the yard was filled with scattered groups and couples. Each of them drinking from those infamous red, plastic cups, taking hits off of each others blunts, or connected to their partners lips. Pushing past them was no easy task, consistently bumping into intoxicated bodies as you made your way to the empty swinging loveseat.

You ran your hand through your hair as you sat, attempting to catch a breath. The party was suffocating. It seemed as though people flooded every room, corner, crevice and pocket the household had. The bathroom; occupied by two girls from your Literature class going down on the All-Star Quarterback whose only response to the disturbance was “Do you wanna join?”

The bedrooms were either locked and if they weren’t you wouldn’t dare go into them anyways. Oh no, you’d learned your lesson the first time you’d ever gone to a house party of this size. Turns out, High Schoolers were a lot kinkier than you could ever have thought.  

Any other room was full of people trying too hard to impress their peers when in the end it didn’t even matter. You never saw the point in these fiascos. High School lasts 4 years and then it’s over with and you don’t ever see these people again. They weren’t important to you in the long run.

So, why were you here in the first place? Well you could thank your 'best friend’ for that. Park Jimin. After well, years, of begging for you to try another party saying, “It won’t be like the first one, I promise. I won’t leave your side and we’ll have fun, just the two of us, okay?” He finally got you to agree to try it once more making him swear he really wouldn’t leave you alone at any point during the party. But, here he was; weak as a kitten as soon as his ex walked in, begging for some alone time to 'talk’.

Oookay, now that people have calmed down a bit (and the YouTube broadcast hasn’t gone live to spark Round 2 if it happens – please don’t happen) I think it’s worth it to step back and examine exactly why this moment in particular sparked such violent emotions in people. (Including me. Again, apologies for the rage, people who don’t follow me for this shit.)

I’ll give you a hint: it’s not because people think that Vax’ildan’s actions were “metagaming” or out-of-character. It’s not metagaming, and of course it’s in-character. It’s a volatile, distilled concentration of everything that people who are not 100% on board with Vax as a character have been complaining about for months:

I had to go my way. But when I found it… I realized that… I didn’t want it to be my way.
                                                                             I wanted it to be ours –  m e   a n d   y o u.
There are more of them, even more than we thought. We are outnumbered. It’s not even close. But that doesn’t change the way that I feel, because it doesn’t change the way that things are. We’re still alive, Rick. So much has happened,so much that we shouldn’t have lived through. And… and in spite of it or maybe because of it, we did. We’re still here, the two of us. We’re still standing, and we’re gonna keep standing. So, what do we do with that? How do we make that mean something? We’re the ones who get things done. You said that. We’re the ones who live. That’s why we have to fight – not for us, but for Judith, for Carl, for Alexandria, for the Hilltop – for all of us. We can fight them, Rick. We can find a way to beat them. We can do this.
                                      But… Only if…   w e   do this.

Okay, I’m spazzing out a bit too, but can we talk about that garage scene?

It was just… phenomenal. My biggest concern was that this was going to happen.

Victor had it right, his leaving would have been the biggest thing to effect Yuuri and we all know he went about it the wrong way. Even he knew it the moment after he said it.

Oops.

BUT YUURI’S REACTION

Calling Victor out on what bullshit that is. He broke down into a blubbering mess, it’s true, but it’s also just the dam breaking from all the pent up nerves.

Yuuri’s so aware of himself too. He explained WHY he was feeling the way he was feeling.

This scene was so important because it wasn’t the typical ‘beg him to come back’ bit, like I dreaded when they finally made the move to use the trope. No.

It was Yuuri snapping back, even in the middle of a meltdown, because he knew what he needed

and instead of bottling it up,

he told Victor, helping him to grow as well. 

Which lead to a great moment of personal and mutual growth with each other.

It was handled so, SOOOO well. It could have very well gone the stereotypical way but it didn’t and I’m soooo happy they did. They shattered my heart expectations yet again;

To people who like Holmes and Watson as a couple, I suggest you to check the Granada version from 1984.
They are an implicit married couple there, staying always together, being affectionate. Of course, since it’s from the 80s, it had to stay implicit, but they are married.
My suggested interpretation is that you read them like getting together after The Devils Foot, which is in the middle of the series. I’m writing a meta on why it happens after that episode, I think there are many hints.
It is not only better representation than BBC Sherlock in terms of what years the series was produced in, but also in absolute terms. 
There are no women that come between them in such a way as BBC Adler did, at most, Watson has a little crush with Mary Morstan before he gets together with Holmes, which is actually a good thing, because it codes him as bisexual and you can clearly see Holmes being jealous.

okay, here is another list of a character, yes this time i’m talking about lexa, because why not (part 1)

  • you know that time when lexa dresses up as a peasant girl and pretends to be fuckin scared of jaha and kane? ya. girl doesnt fuck around she is truly an actress. watch the way she drags her leg because it must appear injured, or how she plays with a leaf as a sign of nervousness, or when she flinches the moment someone raises their voice.
  • but then, because peasant girl must deliver a message, she also goes all dark when jaha asks what would happen if they refused to kill either of them with the knife and she says ‘then the commander will use it to slit both of your throats’. no offense but no matter how soft you even wanna make peasant girl appear, she is slytherin as hell.
  • when lexa reveals herself to be Commander Lexa with that cold hard stare. so yes, she plays games until she doesn’t anymore. this is how you know that all of her entrances will be To Die For
  • Lexa and Gustus height difference
  • Commander Lexa likes Marcus Kane
  • lexa has a thing for playing with objects, just like raven. her knife is her best friend. and she loves to use it for intimidation, especially by dragging her own fingers over the blade, while staring you down
  • one of lexa’s best war-paint looks is during her first scene with clarke in her tent (2x07)
  • “did she die well”
  • lexa always challenging clarke.
  • for real though, she has a thing for challenging people in general
  • when she stands in front of the dropship and looks like a tiny stormcloud
  • she totally has a thing for grabbing things when she is impressed as well. especially when she witnesses something she has never seen before. this time her best friend is her sword. she absorbs unknown things like air.
  • “you cannot stop this”
  • her wtf faces
  • “It is done” - lexa stops an entire army who is angrily running towards clarke with her voice and a simple hand gesture.
  • when she speaks trigedaslang
  • lexa’s biggest weakness is not love but when blonde girls from space speak trigedaslang
  • when she talks about costia and says that she got over the pain but her voice ends up being extremely shaky, has to swallow down her feelings and clench her jaw harder to keep herself from crying.
  • lexa’s candle obsession has been revealed in 2x09
  • ‘thank you, marcus of the sky people’ ‘you’re welcome… lexa… kom trikru’ best friend status reached
  • lexa likes drinks and loves to share
  • when she has to kill gustus…..
  • “death is not the end” she loves being dramatic
  • see also: the dramatic turn
  • lexa actually wanted to fight the pauna with her tiny ass knife (her best friend knife that she uses for literally everything), honest to god pulling an anya who wanted to fight reapers with a stone back in 2x04. she squares herself, licks her lips and confidently steps up and says ‘i’m ready to fight’
  • anya wasnt lying see? thats how they train them to be warriors.
  • watches over clarke while staying up, with her hand planted on her knife and arm still hurting from the pauna attack. denying herself real rest
  • she teaches lessons like ‘mockery is not the product of a strong mind, clarke’ (2x10) and then breaks her own rules a couple days later ‘clarke of the sky people has honored us with her presence’ (2x12)
  • “clarke…clARKE”
  • ‘love is weakness’ *comes back for clarke after the missile hit tondc*
  • lexa gives the shortest speeches in the history of speeches but always gets her point across.
  • the entire Bodyguard of Lies episode where she also has her 20th breakdown in her tent
  • that one time lexa wants to sleep but clarke decides that its time to not stop talking and bombard lexa with all of her thoughts about mount weather instead. lexa is so tired that she even wears her coat open.
  • that moment when she wants to go on a murder mission and get octavia killed because she doesnt trust a fake grounder
  • the softest kisser you will find on planet earth
  • lexa knows how to flirt. will invite you over to her house after two weeks
  • do we talk about the betrayal??? clexa angst was real For A Moment
