why did we even make this

anonymous asked:

Thistle have you even tried to make the baby not cry? Babies need affection. Let him touch your hand. Smile at him. You don't have to hold him. Also, maybe he's hungry?

“Gear already did all those things though! Why do I gotta do it!? And… The only food we have here is meat. I’m almost positive that Lav’s kid wouldn’t eat meat. He doesn’t even have the teeth for it.” 

Why do people don’t get that you can still like someone/support someone even if you don’t agree with something what that someone did!

I had a friend who did stupid shit and I called her out on that! I told her that it was not okay and she should apologize. But she is still my friend! I don’t cut ties with her because she did stupid shit which hurt a lot of people! We called her out on that and she realized it was a mistake and that’s good! It’s better than not realizing what she did and continuing to make this mistake! That’s why I still support her as a friend!

So calm tf down and don’t attack Felix friends for supporting him! You can attack Felix and that for a good reason but in my opinion even that is stupid now because he clearly acknowledged that he did something wrong!

This whole situation was handled poorly by the media and everyone involved. Including us the fans because we tend to jump into conclusions and let emotions guide us, which is usually good but I think this is something you have to approach with a certain level of calm and thought! 

If you are hurt you have probably a good reason and it’s okay to speak about it but do it with a bit more thought. I mean I was shocked with Felix as well but here I am.

Yuuri didn’t actually mess up at the Sochi GPF theory

Okay so I was rewatching episode one when I noticed something from the news articles about the Free Skate failure:

The word “today” really did stick out at me here. As you know, both programmes would not be on the same day, so with the way this article is phrased, it sounds like he at least did okay during his Short. And then this comes directly afterwards:

I’m not sure about the original Japanese, but the use of “fell” here suggests a dramatic turn around. To fall, you must be at some height. And for them to make an article on it? No, Yuuri must have not been already in last place. We know Viktor must have been in first place, but Yuuri? I think he was fourth MINIMUM based on this. He even says in some internal monologue:

His ‘big day’? Why would it be a big day if he’d already done disastrously a day or two before in his Short? Surely, a ‘ big day’ would symbolise him possibly winning a medal?

If he was in last place already, he wouldn’t HAVE that kind of pressure. But all of these lines highly suggests to me that he at least had a shot at doing well during the GPF, maybe he was even close enough that he could have had a chance for a silver medal.

We find out during episode five that during the GPF, Yuuri can’t have scored above 94.36, as they announce it to be his personal best. Still, there’s no reason he couldn’t have scored around 90 ish, which when looking at the other scores that year, probably would have put him in a good position

I did the maths as yes, if you plug his Short score at around 90 it gives a realistic Free score considering he pretty much messed up all of the technical points.

Yuuri Katsuki was most likely in line for bronze or silver after his Short

What does this mean?

This little interaction of Viktor not recognising him as a skater is so much worse, as is Yuuri’s FS failure overall

tl;dr Yuuri actually did very well in his short last time

You know you’re fucked when you’re only 15 but yet it feels like the world could end right there and you would be fine with it. It’s fucked when girls and boys are so young but so depressed, so heartbroken. Feelings fuck you up, i remember when i was only a little girl and i had this whole life ahead of me and all I wanted was a boyfriend. And now after having one, I don’t understand why I needed one, it’s messed me up. Emotionally and physically, I am fucked.

He was the type of boy you could just see yourself lasting forever with, and that’s exactly what I did. He teased me so much that I used to sook about it, but that didn’t matter because at least he was making me smile in some way. He cared so deeply, and he was so sensitive even though everyone I knew saw him as this big tough guy. He was gentle, he was romantic, it was like we were 23 and just madly in love. Our relationship was beyond what you would expect at such a young age, but we were just so maturely in love. But that’s the thing, i’m not 23, i’m so young and now i’m heartbroken and it’s not as simple as going out every night to get him out of my head. I have to sleep early because of school, i have to go to school, I have to study and commit to all of my commitments and it’s impossible to get him out of my mind. He wasn’t just my boyfriend, he was genuinely my best friend and sometimes we fought as best friends would. But no matter how we were fighting, we fought as hard as we could for each other because that’s what love does to you. But one day i guess he just decided to stop fighting, and it wasn’t like I was expecting it. We always swore we would fight for each other, fight for the relationship, fight for our fucking love but he didn’t want too anymore. He didn’t want me anymore, and i can say with all my broken heart that killed me. It’s the worst thing to wake up happily in love and then go to bed broken because you’ve lost the reason why you even got up that day. He said he lost feelings, but I can’t place when. When did he lose feelings? With all of that sweet talk, the kisses, the texts, the calls, the hugs, everything and at some point he somehow started to lose feelings. And it hurt and surprised me so much because everyone knew that he was crazy about me. I saw parts of him that he would never dare to show anyone, we were so comfortable with each other and we allowed each other into our hearts but for some reason he just didn’t want that anymore. I can not place that all in my head, how you can suddenly lose interest in something you once loved. And it wasn’t like the hurt stopped there, no a month later he found himself with another girl. Making all the memories, the love, the jokes, that we were once doing. And the weirdest thing is, everyone around him can see that he doesn’t love her. Not the way he loved me at least. And i can’t seem to process the thought of why you would throw away a diamond for a fake one. Why would you throw away your perfect girl for someone who doesn’t even come close? Fuck, she’s not even pretty and yet i feel like i have to compete with her. And every month goes by, and they are still going strong and for some reason my brain still can’t process it. I still can’t believe that he’s moved on from me because love doesn’t just go away. You can’t just get rid of love because you don’t want it anymore, feelings don’t leave when you ask them too. So what is he doing with her when he can be with me? I’ve never been the girl to wait for someone, i always want to try with everyone but for some reason i am constantly drawn to him, as if he’s truly made for me and i think he is. I think he’s the love of my life and maybe i’m just not his. But when you love something you don’t just let it go, you fucking fight like crazy for it and i can promise everyone i would never go down without a fight. Okay maybe he’s happily in love with her, but what about me? What about my love for him? That doesn’t just go away, that doesn’t get excluded so fuck society and their expectations. Fuck everyone who thinks i won’t succeed. I know what I want, and i’ve never been so determined to get it.

“Egg shells,” I told her. “It felt like walking on egg shells.”

She had asked me what it felt like to be with him. She continued, “So why did you stay? Why did you put yourself through that?”

I smiled. “Because, sometimes, it wasn’t all that bad. If I tip toed in just the right pattern—if I watched my steps carefully—it was beautiful. We were beautiful.” Then my smile fell. “But sometimes, the egg shells cracked if even just the wind blew in the wrong way. And that’s when I should’ve left, but I never could make myself.”

She looked at me with sad eyes.

“I loved him,” I told her. “I loved him so much that I became an expert at every game he played. And he loved who I became for him.”

Riverdale's Jughead Isn't Asexual, But Actor Cole Sprouse Isn't Giving Up
Classic Archie Comics character Jughead Jones won’t be depicted as asexual when “Riverdale” premieres on The CW, but it’s not for actor Cole Sprouse’s lack of trying.

Why did I even let myself hope? Aces never get represented on TV. No less characters who I looked up to myself growing up, who helped make sense of my own identity. I was so happy when Chip Zdarsky canonized Jughead’s orientation in the comics. And when I heard about Riverdale, I thought maybe, just maybe we’d be getting a major ace character in a mainstream television show. But I must be some kind of moron for even entertaining that thought, right?

Look. I know ace visibility isn’t anywhere close to the most important issue in equal rights and representation right now. But we can’t even have Jughead?

Please, CW. Please, Greg Berlanti. We have so little. Don’t deny us this, too.

Only Slytherin; Part 1

“I want to make out with you.” “We’re in the middle of potions class” “So?”


”Its not dark enough.” “Darling it’s black” “Not black enough


“Why are you crying did someone say something really stupid again”


“I didn’t mean to sound like a psychopath when I said that I just hate people”


“Fucking hell am I the only one here who is not an uncultured swine”


“How am I supposed to express my emotions if I can’t even fucking swear in the essay professor”


“I’m sorry do words with more than 3 syllables confuse you?”


“If you don’t shut the fuck up about how uncomfortable your shoes are I will get you muggle crocs for Christmas.”


“Professor am I not meant to be truthful? Then why am in trouble for for calling her out on being a raging bitch?”


“I love you but I don’t need this right now please leave”


“Stop crying, he’s not worth your tears”


Why are we always seeing these articles asking, “Why did they vote for Trump even though he promises to get rid of their healthcare!?”  And its like…You KNOW why.  Stop dancing around it, point out the elephant in the room and admit that gold old fashioned racism made people vote against their own interest…yet again.  Stop trying to humanize them and make it look like they made a “mistake”.  They knew what they were doing.  They just hoped it would fall back on the “moochers” of society (aka people of color, Jews, the poor, etc.) and they would be the “exception” and would get to sit and watch our lives be ruined. 

And surprise, surprise, it didn’t work out that way, just like it didn’t work out that way the last time. 

How about we humanize the kids who are scared of being deported, or the families who will lose the little bit of money they make once the minimum wage gets gutted.  How about we humanize black families who are afraid of a nationwide stop and frisk?  What about people scared of a Muslim registry or Jewish people who are frightened that Steve Bannon is in a position to act on his bullshit?  What about the people of color who’s vote were contested and showed up anyways…just to find out that their friends and neighbors voted to ruin everyone’s lives just to spite them.  Why not talk about how those people were “tricked” by the voters who smiled to their faces, and voted for a white supremacist behind their backs, and are only concerned because it backfired?

Like who he tryna kid though?

Why are autistic people in media always displayed as the burden sibling/friend?

Why do the Neurotypicals who surround them always get so much credit for ‘putting up for them’?

Why do people still look dissatisfied when I say that I am autistic but only average at mathematics?

Why do people speak to me like a child when I tell them I am autistic?

Why do people still assume that only men/boys can have autism?

Why do people always look so surprised when they hear me speak coherently? What did they expect?

Why do I still put up with people shitting on my special interest?

Why do people think it is okay to make a really loud noise when I say I am oversensitive, to test it out?

Why are we shown as 'different and less’ rather than 'equal but different’?

Why are we invalidated constantly, but when we have an opinion we are suddenly 'too autistic’ for it to count?

Why should I even have to ask these questions?

Why did Carrey’s portrayal of Count Olaf feel so unsatisfying?

The topic of Jim Carrey’s performance in the 2004 adaptation of “A Series Of Unfortunate Events” remains controversial even to this day. While almost everyone agrees on his immense comedic talent, many fans argue that he was miscast. Who would choose an improv comedian to play one of the most terrifying villains of children’s literature? Over the years, we hear the very same complaints:

  1. His outlandish nature makes Olaf look like an incompetent fool ;
  2. His humorous lines ruin his aura of menace ;
  3. He’s too much of a showboat to look clever and conniving.

And at the same time, many people recognize that this direction is not a betrayal of the original character. Olaf sometimes acts with incredible stupidity in the books. He can be hilarious in a dark, cringeworthy sort of way. And his ego is beyond measure. He is every bit the larger-than-life, grandiose and yet ridiculous jerk Carrey brought to life.

Yet many fans still feel a strong discrepancy between the original character and his adaptational counterpart. Is it just a matter of dosage? You could argue that Olaf simply went a little too far with the humour, or that the script didn’t give him enough chances to reveal his threatening, diabolical self.

The Paramount-Nickleodeon adaptation is sweeter and softer than the books, no one denies that. Then again, Carrey’s bombastic ad-libs feel like a tree hiding the forest. There is a graver adaptational change at play here, which causes a butterfly effect. I believe he was never given a real chance to give us an accurate restitution of Olaf’s character, and this has to do with the nature of adaptation itself. Let’s take a closer look at the movie to see what went wrong.

how come you recorded the song superpower ft. frank ocean if you hate it so much and you never wanna perform it live? why was it the only song left out of the self-titled album medley at the vmas? how did you even find frank ocean to record it when you did? also how come you pay schoolin life dust? why don’t you appreciate your own art? in addition, is there a reason why you hate i was here? you performed it like once and idg why bc it’s so good? how do you expect to leave your footprints on the sands of time if you never let anyone hear you sing that damn song more than once? and since we’re on the topic of sand, have you heard the song sandcastles? it’s great. you know what you make it better? if you sang it live and i dont wanna offend anyone or anything but resentment/sandcastles mashup should have been on the setlist for fwt and speaking of fwt how come you only performed 7/11 on tour once but you kept on that damn red and white linoleum tile looking ass gucci outfit for half of the american leg of the tour?

With regards Prompto’s barcode...

This post got me thinking… did Prompto always have it covered? For some reason I always figured it was underneath the skin no idea why. The answer is: Yes.

I always found it strange that he had wristbands over his gloves, but I just chalked it down to typical FF design albeit modernised.

So I was talking to a friend about this and we were discussing if he had wore it as a child.

Yep.

Even when he’s washing Pryna.

And going to bed.

Even before facing Noctis, he fixes his armband and squeezes to make sure nothing is shown. (At first I thought it was just a little ritual he does to boost his confidence - like when someone snaps a rubber band on their wrist as a good luck charm.)

Dear god… Poor Prompto. What was just a small thing before now makes so much sense and means so much more. Not only was he conscious about his weight but he was agonising over his past being revealed and his identity made known. Fuck.

The year 2096
  • My great great grandkids: how are you today grannie?
  • Me: Jess didn't deserve to be forgotten in the wind. Jess Mariano deserved way more than the revival gave him. He is a good boy with a great spirit and it doesn't make sense for them to only have him show up to give Rory advice and then to have him stare longingly through the window. It doesn't make sense that he wasn't at the wedding. Or that he wasn't Luke's best man. Jess is more than Rory's ex, and more than her life advisor. He's a person. And he has a life. Why didn't we get to learn about his life? Why dID A PIG GET MORE SCREEN TIME THAN JESS MARIANO
  • My great great grandkids: ...
  • me: it's just not fair. Even Dean got to have a life, and he was there for three minutes. Dean had a family! Dean wasn't hung up on Rory's selfish ass! Jess deserved more than the "life" Amy and Dan supposedly gave him. It's a disgusting use of a character that was loved by nearly everyone.
Kpop Parents Connections #The3rdMeeting #TheDadsAreInCharge

( @lxnchiii gave me this idea for this post a while ago and I’m finally doing it now. Sorry for the lateness I’ve just had no time to write.)

Kris: So Suho decided it may be good if the “ex” and the “next” teamed up to support our dysfunctional families.

Seungcheol: Question though. Why are Tao and Sehun both here? Shouldn’t there be only one Maknae?

Yixing: Well see Exo is made up of M and K and toget–

Kris: Lol I’m usually the absentee father. But that’s the past, I’m fully committed to being in my kid’s liv-

Seungri: Yo Yifan! I got the score on 3 models with daddy issues in a hotel room in 5 minutes! First 3 rounds of soju are on me! You down?

Yongguk: *takes a bite*

Yongguk: These taste like ass

Yugyeom: Ohhh wait!! Those were the ones I was suppose to only give JB! My bad bro.

Zelo: Wouldn’t be the first questionable thing he’s put in his mouth.

Yongguk: I’m going to go make coffee

Yongguk: *leaves*

Yugyeom: *to Zelo* You think he’s coming back?

Zelo: Nah fam he’s gone, and he was my ride.

Hyuk: Don’t worry bro, i got bus fare.

Dino: You act like you get left a lot

Hyuk: 3 times a week

Tao: I feel your pain

Sehun: WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE? YOUR DAD LEFT 20 MINUTES AGO!

Tao: Honestly I didn’t have anything to do and I wanted a cookie before i left.

Seungcheol: But they’re ass flavored.

Yixing: He doesn’t mind.

Sungjong: Why are you all so gross? I feel like I have to be a fake person to even fit in here.

Changkyun: *mutters* Says the person who makes all the plastic detectors go off in the airports.

Sungjong: THEY GO OFF BECAUSE I HAVE MORE CREDIT CARDS IN MY POCKET THAN YOU HAVE FANS!

Shownu: Ouch

Jaebum: Hey Shownu! You’ve been so quiet. Is there anything you want to say?

Shownu: no

Sunggyu: We are literally the nicest people here, why in the world are we getting dragged?

Top: Calm down gramps, you’re like 5 years late to the insult, they already moved on.

Sunggyu: *cups ear* A gas station in Tuscon???!!

Jungkook: You remind me of someone old I once knew….

MJ: So we’ll be leaving….this was…something

Sanha: Daddy what does Fboi mean?

Changkyun: We’re bouncing out, Starship is getting sick of our losses and said we can’t stay out late as punishment

Zelo: But it’s only 2pm

Changkyun: WE’RE ALREADY LATE! NOW WE’LL HAVE TO BATHE OURSELVES IN OLIVE OIL IN THONGS FOR OUR NEW MV *runs out*

Shownu: *whispers* not again *leaves too*

Jaebum: You know, sometimes i wish i could go back in time and save him.

Sunggyu: Well we’re out! I’ll be here next time with Woohyun he really wanted to come! *leaves*

Sungjong: I’ll be busy the next meeting

Jaebum: But it’s not even scheduled ye-

Sungjong: *slams door behind him*

Hyuk: Yo Zelo, you ready to go?

Zelo: Yeah dude, but I mean I was ready after the first 5 minutes *both leave laughing*

Jaebum: *mutters* Being around these idols is starting to make me sick.

Yugyeom: Nah it’s just the coffee. Jinyoung had me slip something in that too.

Sehun: Come on Yixing, I want to go home. This was boring and no one complimented my “boyfriend look” today. *leaves with a humph*

Yixing: Thanks for having us, It’s nice to be recognized for something more than being Chinese *follows Sehun*

Jaebum: Whew finally this meeting is over!

Tao: *clears throat*

Yugyeom: WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE??

Tao: So about the cookies…

Jaebum: Why don’t you do something you’re actually good at and just leave!

Tao:

Yugyeom: Damnnnn

Tao: You cut me deep bro…you cut me real deep *adjusts prada leather coat with panda fur and leaves*

Yugyeom: Yeah so I’m going home too Jinyoung made dinner and I don’t want my plate to get cold.

Jaebum: Yugyeom

Yugyeom: Yes?

Jaebum: Can you ask him if I can come home now?
