why does this even have notes

02/12/16; i started the day with an unplanned visit at the hospital, therefore i got to the library a bit later than i originally wanted to. despite that i managed to get everything i’ve planned for today done. i also got hang of all of the books for intro to scandinavian lit i’m going to have to read in the next half of the semester. first i need to get through the mid-term though - that’s where all the mindmaps are for. i’m quite pleased with how each of them turned out. in the pictures also: my bullet journal spread containing daily lists on the left and all the uni stuff i need to get done by next week on the right, and also a window selfie where you can’t see my swollen eye (aka the reason i went to the hospital in the morning). also black coffee has become my new best friend. 

“A Date with Markiplier”, Darkiplier Theory.

After watching “A Date with Markiplier” multiple times, and replaying and replaying the parts where Darkiplier is featured; I have created a theory as to why Dark acts the way he does (In these videos, not as whole). Now, let me first start off by saying, this probably, (definitely) is not the BEST Dark theory out there. And there are probably holes are mistakes in this theory, or repeating themes. But nonetheless, it is a theory that I have created that is interesting.. hopefully. Note: This theory comes with spoilers! If you haven’t watched the whole video, or at least the Dark parts, please do. (The video and Darkiplier parts are linked above.) And even if it may not seem like it, I worked really hard and long on this theory. (Literally about 3 days. And typing all of this up took about 2-4 hours.) So please treat it with respect. (But don’t be afraid to add your own theories or thoughts on this! Feedback is always welcome. Positive or negative. Just don’t be a butt about it.) So, without further ado, let us begin! I hope you have the patience to read it all. Enjoy! 

This theory is mainly based on the parts where you are confronted by Dark while you are watching “The Dark Mark”. What you are going to read below is me basically showing images of Dark, taking direct quotes he has said in the videos, and explaining why he is saying what he does. 

We start off by having Dark glitch and fade into view. He tilts his head to the side, saying he has missed us very much. And that he has been waiting a long time to see us again. 

Then he continues on saying: “I’ve been pushed asideReplacedMocked.” Now this caught my attention even from the beginning. How has Dark been pushed aside, replaced, and mocked? Who has done this to him? Why? I tried to reflect more on what that meant, but Dark kept talking, catching my attention even more…

Who is “He”? And why does Dark think this… “He” is going on an adventure with us? Why and how was Dark not invited to it? 

Dark continues…

Dark mentions “He” again. Saying this person promised he would let him in. Again. Who promised Dark and what promise was made between them? 

This is where the theory begins. The main idea of this theory is based on a small post I made a while ago. If you have already read it, then you’ll understand where I’m going with this. If not, I suggest you read it really quick HERE

And now… we shall truly begin. 

Dark begins our one-sided conversation with: “I’ve been pushed aside, replaced, mocked.” But what also connects with this statement is what he says later: “ I’ve been waiting patientlyHe promised he would let me in again!” Now, since Dark is basically Mark’s inner demon, I could only assume that the “He” Dark keeps talking about is Mark. But what promise did Mark make with Dark? This is where I start to lean back on my older theory I hope you have read. 

I believe that Dark is in love with us. Or… at least has some sort of feelings for us. Or is at least curious about us. So, I think in the past Dark asked Mark permission to take control over Mark’s body so that he could spend time with us. Get to know the person he has unexplainable feelings for. Mark complied. Promising Dark that one day, Dark would have the opportunity to talk to us. But that day never came. And now Dark feels as if he has been Pushed aside. Replaced. And Mocked. These feelings have been repressed, but now since Mark is on this “adventure”, or “date” with us, Dark’s feelings and anger have come out. Dark feels that he has been pushed aside because he literally has been pushed aside. This date was supposed to be the date Dark was finally allowed to spend time with us. But instead… he got pushed. Pushed into the deepest, darkest, places of Mark’s mind. Mark didn’t want Dark to come out on this date. Because he was planning, later down the road, to propose to us. And he didn’t want Dark to ruin it. So Mark took over Dark, replacing him, even though he promised Dark that he would be allowed to take control. And now, Dark feels angry, hurt, and mocked. Mocked because today was supposed to be his day with us. But now he has to watch us through Mark’s eyes. Unable to do anything. Unable to talk to us and ask the questions he’s always wanted to ask. All he can do is stand back and watch the person he has feelings for go on a date with someone who betrayed him.

“And then he had the gall not to invite me to his little adventure with you.” This connects to what I said above. Mark has pushed Dark aside and didn’t allow him to take over on the date. Quite literally, he wasn’t invited on the date. He was casted away and replaced. But the one word Dark said that caught my attention was: “Adventure”. Why did Dark call it an adventure when he knew it was a date. A proposal, even? I believe the reason to be simple. Dark is angry and jealous right now. He doesn’t even want to call the event we are going on with Mark as a “date”. So, instead, he calls it an adventure. Making it easier on him and his heart. Also hoping in that calling it an adventure, he’ll make Mark look silly and foolish. As if he doesn’t know what a real “date” is. 

This part was very interesting. After saying all he said, spewing out his anger and frustration, Dark fixes his tie and suit, straightening up and saying: “ I’m tired of giving people a choice.” From what we have learned earlier, this sentence can only mean that he is tired of giving Mark the choice on controlling when and where he can allow him to take control.

But then, Dark sighs, saying: “But I suppose I could give you one last option.” Hearing Dark say this was extremely odd to me. Didn’t he just say that he was tired of giving people (Mark) a choice? But yet right after, he turns around to give us options and the ability to choose? I think he does this because no matter how closed off or frustrated he may get, he still wants to give the us the ability to choose. Since he has some sort of feelings for us, he doesn’t want to force us into something we don’t want to do. 

He continues: “Take your pick. Anything of four different choices, more than he could’ve ever given you.” Why did Dark give us so many options. Why did he bitterly say “more than he could have ever given you.”? And why did all options but one actually lead to a place that continues the story? 

I think the bitter remark and the option of more choices go back to Dark’s “adventure” statement. He wants to make Mark look foolish. Make Mark look like he can’t provide for us as much as he can. Even if it’s something simple as being able to go more places. But why, in giving us all these options, did only one actually go somewhere? It’s because, even though Dark does have feelings for us, he still is “dark”. He is still evil, demonic, etc. He purposefully made only one option that actually goes somewhere. He makes us go on a “date” with him (later on) the only way he knows how. Manipulation and Illusion. He gives us the illusion of choice, when really he manipulated it so there is only one right way. And that is to go on a date and spend time with him. 

This makes him sound pretty evil doesn’t it? That he just manipulates and cheats his way through until he gets what he wants. And that may be true, but.. At the same time, it’s actually pretty sad. That is all he knows. To cheat, to steal, and manipulate… Dark was toyed with and replaced. Promised he would be allowed to be with us. But that didn’t happen. And now Dark is forced to make his own path. Struggle to take control over Mark, and find a way to where we will spend time with him. Not Mark.

“So take your pick. Show me what you’ve got. And maybe… We’ll have a good date after all.” Wait what?! Did Dark look down shyly at the ground… Smile… And say “Date”?! This really blew my mind after I watched it a couple times.

After taunting us on by saying: “Show me what you’ve got.” Dark pauses, his face suddenly seems to soften. “And maybe…” He cracks what looks to be a smile and briefly looks down at the ground, “ We’ll have a good date after all.” He looks back up, but his face and body immediately harden and become cold and static once more. What just happened?! Mark randomly says “Maybe we’ll have a good date after all.” And he shows emotion and smiles? Why does he do this? I think I know why. 

Obviously, Dark has been waiting to spend time with us. And now that he has Mark under control and is alone with us, he finally realizes that his dream of being with us is soon to become reality. He smiles and quickly looks down to hide his emotion that he is excited for this long awaited day. And, instead of calling it an “adventure” like he did when he vaguely defined our outing with Mark, he says “date”. Making it official and saying it more for himself than us. But then, after he realizes he slipped: showing emotion and calling our alone time a “date”, his face hardens and he composes himself back into the stone cold Darkiplier once more. But in trying so hard to compose himself, he lets a small, angry frown dance dance across his face before straightening. Showing that he is angry with himself for showing so much ambition.

(Note: Phew! This is a lot of writing! I hope you guys are doing ok and you like this! Stay in your seat, there’s a lot more to yet come!)

*We choose “Freedom”*

“If dinner is what you want then I can provide…” We are now officially on what Dark described as a date. He glitches and we are suddenly sitting at a table with what looks to be a cup and a bottle of wine to the side. As I watched and rewatched this, I found it interesting that Dark chose to place us in a dinner date situation. The same setting we were at when we were with Mark. And say things like: “I can provide…” Why did he place us in a dinner date setting? Why did he say if we wanted dinner, then he could provide it? The answer is interesting. 

Remember, the whole date you were having with Mark, Dark was also seeing and experiencing. So that means, Dark was there even for when Mark misplaced his wallet, making you have to pay for the meal. This obviously annoyed Dark. Enough to the point where he had to physically point out and show us that if we wanted dinner, he could pay. He could provide us with a meal. This is basically a big slap in the face to Mark. Once again, Dark is trying to make Mark look idiotic and that the outing/ date we were on with Mark, wasn’t a date after all. And that he can do a better job on planning a date and providing.   

The date carries on. “And I can take you wherever you’d like to go…” I found this odd when Dark said this. It’s kind of a random thing to say on a date isn’t it? But it all makes more sense when you look at it this way:

Near the beginning and basically throughout our whole date with Mark, he keeps saying that he has our whole day planned out. And that he can’t wait to take us to certain places. I think Dark said this as yet another jab towards Mark. Mark had our whole day planned, swiftly leading us from one location to another. But Dark said: “ I can take you wherever you’d like to go..” almost as a counteroffer to what Mark was doing for us. There is a sense of freedom when Dark says he can take us wherever we would like to go. A sense of freedom and choice. Dark seems to be using this statement to try and make him look more appealing to us than Mark. Possibly even more fun or risky than Mark.  

After Dark states he can take us anywhere, he then dumps this heavy and scary: “I can especially take you to where you don’t want to go..” on us. 

Honestly, I was a little confused on why he would say this. Is it because he’s “dark” and evil and he would actually enjoy to take us places we would hate? Or is he using some weird, vague form of reverse phycology? Is he saying that “the places where we don’t want to go…” is back to Mark? It would kind of make sense. After saying and telling us of all the things he can do for us and provide for us, the last thing he would want is for us to still choose and go back to Mark. But he says that he can take us to where we don’t want to go, meaning that he would take us back to Mark if we chose that. 

Dark continues to talk, but then he begins to glitch and shake. He is then suddenly screaming: “I can give you anything!” And then as fast as it came, it goes, and he continues talk to us normally saying: “I’ve been waiting a long time. To get some personal time between us…” Ok… What just happened here? He was screaming one minute and then normal again the next?

I think Dark glitches and screams “I can give you anything!”, because he momentarily looses his composure. He’s been spending a good portion of this date trying to show us that he can provide for us and comparing himself to Mark. I think he starts to become frustrated in himself and how we aren’t reacting the way he would have hoped. Thus, his inner voice comes out, screaming, frustrated and angry that we can’t understand that he can give and provide everything we want and need.

After his short episode, he continues talking. Saying he’s been waiting a long time to “get some personal time between us…” I think he’s saying this because the only time he has ever been with us, or has “spent time with us”, is when he is being pushed to the back of Mark’s mind and has to watch from the sidelines and listen and hear Mark’s words and thoughts. But now that he has finally taken over Mark, he can truly get the personal alone time he’s always lusted over.      

The date continues, and Dark has one more episode. But what happens next is interesting. Dark says: “So.. Now that we are here together… We should really get to know each other…” And then suddenly, it looks like Dark is split in two. One part of him thrashing around and screaming. Why? Because it’s Mark… Trying to escape Dark’s possession of his body. 

Remember, this whole time we have been with Dark, Mark has been there, watching and listening to what Dark is saying. (Which also explains why at times, Dark twitches his head. Its because Mark is there in the back of his mind try to take control once again.) So Mark has been fighting Dark this whole time, and it seems Dark is slowly running out of time and loosing control, hence the episodes he keeps having. But notice where Mark made a big push to take control when he did. He did it right after Dark said we should “get to know each other…” It seems as if Mark didn’t like the idea of Dark getting to know us, and vise versa. Probably thinking Dark is going to take advantage of us at some point on the date. So, he tries and puts all his strength in trying to take back control before Dark can do anything to us. But once again, as quickly as it starts, Dark glitches and the image of Mark is gone, and Dark is back to normal.  

You just need to let me in… It’s as simple as that…

When I first heard this, I thought that Dark meant that we should allow him into our mind or soul. But as I began to create this theory, I began to think… What if Dark didn’t mean our soul or mind… But our heart? I mean, during this whole date he has been trying and trying to show us how much better he is than Mark, and how he can do all these things for us. Basically saying, how he can care and love us, just in a very “Darkiplier” way. What if he just wants to be loved by us. Accepted by us? And the only way he knows how to say that is something off putting like: “You just need to let me in..” Maybe all he wants is just a chance  with us. A chance to show how much he cares and ask us why he is feeling the way he does about us? 

After asking us to place him in our heart, and give him a chance, Dark then takes us outside. Believing that he has taken full control over Mark and boasting about it by saying: “You’re never, EVER, going to escape me…Not now-” He is confronted by Mark, in physical form. (Now this part can basically just completely eradicate my theory that Dark has taken over Mark, and not that they are two different people with their own bodies. Now that theory, COULD technically work here, but I decided I like the “Mark and Dark are two in one” theory better. Since Dark IS essentially Mark’s inner-demon. So I’m going to say that this part is actually where Mark gains some power within his mind, and now Dark and Mark are fighting for dominance.) 

After they fight for a while, a gun is dropped and you now have to decide to choose whether to shoot the left or right Mark. Later on, we find out the the Right is Dark, and Left is Mark. And this is where I was confused with what they are saying until I put up the captions. And what each of them were saying was interesting. 

Left Mark (the real Mark) starts off by saying: “You don’t have much time he’s going to kill everybody.” 

While Right Mark (Dark) says: “Shoot him. He needs to die.” 

The thing I found interesting was what they both first said to defend themselves. Left Mark (Mark), immediately starts off by saying that: There isn’t much time, and that Right Mark is going to kill everyone. Mark is trying to warn us. While Right Mark (Dark), just simply says off instinct: “Shoot him. He needs to die.”… Now that’s harsh. Mark just wants to warn us that if we don’t shoot Dark, we will all die. So he’s trying to save both us and himself. But Dark just spurts out that Mark NEEDS to die. No note of concern, or worry. No thought of what might happen afterwards. They keep talking, still trying to convince us: 

 Mark says: “He’s got weird eyes. Don’t trust him at all.” 

While Dark says: “He does bad things to good people.” 

Now, the thing I found extremely interesting was this part right here. Mark says that Dark has weird eyes, which is true. He is known for having completely Dark eyes. But how he said the next part is what caught my attention. Mark said: “DON’T trust him at all.”. He didn’t say “I don’t trust him at all.” But simply, “Don’t trust him…” Therefore, Mark was telling US not to trust Dark. It was a command. Because he knows what Dark is able to do. 

What Dark says also caught my attention. Why would Dark say: “He does bad things to good people.”? Isn’t Dark supposed to be the “bad guy” here? Manipulating and weaving around things to get to what he wants? True, that is what he did to get us to date him. But just because he did those things, do you think he even wanted to? We have already proven that in the past, Dark asked for permission to spend time with us. But since that didn’t happen, Dark had to take control. All because Mark betrayed his promise to Dark. So maybe, Dark is saying “He does bad things to good people.” Because he’s hurt and angry that Mark didn’t fill out his promise. That Mark led him on only to be trapped in the back of his mind again, while he got ready to propose to the person Dark had feelings for without even been given a chance. 

After we shoot Left Mark, Right Mark comes over saying: “You made the right call. Come here, it’s okay, it’s okay.” Assuring us and embracing us. We then continue the date by getting ice cream. We sit down while Right Mark continues to talk, saying: “We’ll enjoy some nice, dairy-based treats. And erm, get to know other. Really, personally…” We then begin to eat our ice cream when the screen flickers and glitches. We look back up and are greeted to see Dark sitting across form us. Dark then says: “Oops. Looks like you’ve made the wrong choice. But now we’re going to be together… forever.”

When I first watched this side of the date, I paid no regard to what Right Mark said. But after rewatching the mini date we had with Dark, and going back to this, I noticed something. Dark always seems to talk about getting to know us, or getting close to us. Spending personal time with with. Before, during our private date with Dark, he said: “I’ve been waiting a long time. To get some personal time between us…”  So when right Mark said: “Really, personally…” It became obvious that it was Dark sitting in front of us. After Dark transforms into his true self, he then says: “Oops. Looks like you’ve made the wrong choice.” I believe Dark said this because he knew, that if we knew who the real Mark was back when we had to decide who to shoot, we would have chosen the real Mark hands down. So he kept quiet. Hoping that with luck, he could say the right words and look innocent enough and emulate Mark, that we would shoot the wrong man. Before we are met with “Try Again?”, Dark continues, “But now we’re going to be together..forever.” and smiles. The first time I heard this, it sounded creepy, and some of you might think so as well. But I think Dark said this because he was finally free. Free of Mark’s hold on him. And free to be with the person he is curious about and has unexplained feelings for. He’s finally free to provide and care for us, without Mark battling for control in the back of his mind. Because that part of him is now dead. He can finally get to know us. Get that personal, intimate time he has always yearned for. He’s finally found freedom from being pushed aside. Being replaced and being mocked. He can finally have a true chance with us. A chance… for us to let him into our heart. Because we’ve always been in his.     

why does this post have so many notes

why are people actually fucking surprised about this content being in a disney animated movie

I mean seriously

have people even been paying attention

murder is not a new concept in disney animation

in fact it’s pretty much the standard

it’s in literally every movie

even on-screen deaths

like are we really choosing to ignore a good chunk of animation history

just so we can give half-hearted accolades to a movie that didn’t do anything particularly special

I can’t even with this post

disney villains have always been murderous shitheads

Hans is nothing special he does nothing new

hell he didn’t even die even though most murderous villains end up that way

and in some pretty gruesome ways

so yeah anyway I don’t get that post I don’t get why it has so many notes and I don’t get why people willingly ignore disney’s long history of depicting violence in favor of painting Frozen as some kind of amazing outside-the-box story

Cursetale Fanfiction? Not Quite...

Author’s Note: I should apologize for this, but I won’t.


Day 1:

Discovered an amazing new AU (cursetale), with an amazing new skele to admire (Dre). I must look into this further.

Day 9:

His feet… are so tiny… and therefore… his socks… also… so. very. smol. Investigation underway. (What is this madness?)

Day 15:

Are they baby socks? Are they doll socks? Why doesn’t he wear shoes? Why does he only have one sock in this picture? Where is the other sock?!

Day 22:

Dre’s tiny feet and subsequently tiny socks have become my life now, and I am ok with this. Haunt my dreams, tiny socks. I welcome you.

Day 35:

Replaced all furniture with tiny socks. In an unrelated incident (alleged incident), I may or may not have bitten a baby at the store today. I needed those socks more than he did…

Day 48:

Shrine completed! Tiny Dre-feet pictures printed out and taped to closet wall? Check. Pile of tiny socks to live in? Check. Regrets? None.

Day 90:

What is therapy?

Day 91:

Nope.

Day 167:

My dreams are haunted by fantasies by a tiny-footed skele making it rain an array of the smallest socks. I no longer wish for the waking world.

Day 201:

Managed to climb onto the roof. Spelled out “Notice me sockpai” in baby socks. Maybe someone will send help…

Day 204:

Don’t send help. I live here now.

Day 332:

I am ok with this.

Ruki: brrrr, it’s so cooold. I need to get some winter clothes 😷
Ruki: I’m sitting here, wrapped in something and working, as I’m bathing in the light of my computer.
Ruki: now that I think of it, you guys must have been so cold when you got wet in the rain at zepp the other day. why does it rain? 
and why is it always clear on new years?
Ruki: aah, chilly, chilly (image 1)
kkdesu: even though I’m a sun-bringer, I’m sorry. 

Ruki: Kuk-Kun, get exorcized… though I’m also kind of a complicated rain-bringer…💃
Ruki: our new work (image 2)

Note: In Japan, some people are called rain-bringers (雨女/雨男) and some sun-bringers (晴れ女/晴れ男). They are told to cause rain or the weather to get sunny when they’re around. Kusaka is apologizing for not being able to bring out the sun on the day of the show the other day (even though he’s supposed to be a sun-bringer) so Ruki told him to get exorcized cause his sun-bringing abilities aren’t working but apparently he’s a weird kind of rain-bringer himself (perhaps cause he doesn’t always causes rain every time he leaves the house).

why is it always the woman who has to see past the beast in the man? why does she always have to clean his wounds, even after he has damaged her beyond repair? why is it always the man who is worthy of forgiveness for being a monster?
I want to see the beast in the beauty.
the half smile, half snarl. the unapologetic anger. I would like to see the man forgive the monster. to see her, blood and all, and love her anyway.

       I DID A REDRAW FROM LIKE THREE YEARS AGO WTF WAS I DOING LOL

        So, this was a Pewdiepie picture I drew back in April of 2013 and I kind of wanted to do a little redraw to see how much I have changed within the span of three years, and holy hot damn. 

Things I’ve noted:

  • Pretty sure I didn’t use references when I was younger so REFERENCE FOR ANY ARTIST IS IMPORTANT! It’s always great to have SOME kind of reference to you. I cannot tell you how long I stared at Pewd’s hair trying to get it right while looking at the other one and saying “Why the fuck does it look like this? This doesn’t look like Pewd’s hair in the slightest.”
  • Even if something is white don’t be afraid to make it an off white of some kind. It really helps with shading, lighting, and all that fun stuff. One thing my professors have always taught us is not everything is pure white or black. There will always be some tinge of color somewhere. 
  • Don’t give up. As you can tell between three years I’ve changed A HELL OF A LOT and to all artist out there who don’t think their good, get up and try again! Try harder and harder til you find that style that is right for you! All artist paint, color, draw, and do steps in different ways so don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t look like Picasso or something. It’s your work, and you put your heart and soul into it and that is what makes it special. If you keep trying and listen to those who critic you properly, you’ll make great things! I know it!

        There is possibly some other things I’m missing, but hell. I’m so happy with how much I have progressed.

Autistic Acceptance vs Autism Awareness.

The following are my thoughts on Autism Awareness vs Autistic Acceptance. None of what I am saying here is new and my fellow Autistic people have been saying this kind of thing for years. However I must say these things more because we have not been listened to yet. On that note let us begin.

So April is coming up and with it all the “Autism Awareness” bullshit that comes with it. Why is it bullshit you might ask? Let me explain.

1: Autistic people don’t want or need this type of Awareness

The type of Awareness that comes out in April does not lead to Acceptance, hell it doesn’t even lead to understanding. It creates fear and further misunderstanding of Autistic people. They treat it like a disease, something to be cured, hidden and fixed. That sort of Awareness will never ever lead to acceptance or at least the acceptance us Autistic people want and deserve.

2: Aware of what exactly?

If I told you I was aware of giraffes that wouldn’t tell you anything and it wouldn’t require anything on my part. Which is of course part of the many reasons why Awareness is bullshit. If it doesn’t require anything of people it won’t positively effect the Autistic Community. In fact its made things worse in a lot of ways. We think parents, caregivers and people who know Autistic people know more then actually Autistic people, its madness.

3: Now what about Autistic Acceptance?

Now you might be thinking if you have stayed for this long, ok dude we’ve heard your thoughts on awareness now what about Acceptance? To that I say good question let me explain. Autistic Acceptance is about embracing Autistic people aswell as Autism as a natural neurological difference and a part of Neurodiversity. Wanting Autistic people to have inclusion, tolerance, understanding, support, autonomy, acceptance and to be allowed to be different.

4: In closing.

Now this April I want you to not only think/talk about helping Autistic people, do it. Donate to Autistic Self Advocacy Network or Autism Womens Network, light it up gold for Autistic Acceptance or red instead of light it up blue for Autism Awareness, Talk to Autistic people about the best ways to advocate for us, support films/businesses/TVshows/restaurants/products etc made by autistic people and so much more you could do. Remember though, never talk over Autistic voices in Advocacy if your not Autistic and are a ally ask actually Autistic adcovates how best to help.

5: Terms used

Neurodiversity: Neurodiversity is a biological fact, hence ADHD, Autism, OCD, Neurotypicality and even that there is a Neuromajority in the first place.

Autism: A neurological difference

Autistic Community: A community made up of Autistic people.

Sidenote: Please ask any questions you have.

looking for another thing I read in CoB that “Robert who was terrified of the Marks”. So does that mean Robert Lightwood was scared of runes? And on that note, why?

Summary: One morning at 7:30, after Keith’s daily work-out, he meets the same guy in the caf. At first he thought it was just a fluke. What guy looks ready to go to class so early? But then they seem to meet over and over again, and this stranger seems to really know Keith.

Who is he? Why does he knows about Keith? And why won’t Shiro leave him alone? He does NOT have a crush.

Notes: I thought this was so lovely?? I loved how Lance was flirty and mysterious without being reduced to tropes, and I loved even more how frustrated Keith was with the situation.. The dialogue was compelling and made me laugh, the writing flowed, and it was totally an example of why I love modern au klance. :)

which vines have made it to [insert random stranger here]’s Top 20 more than anyone else? to what extent have you memorized “sand guardian, guardian of the sand” versus “free water you fucking asshole”? why have you never seen that one with the travis owl before it appeared in this one lonely <500-note compilation even though it’s, in your opinion, better than some that have appeared multiple times? is “bird machine” really that underrated? does all respect for actually linking back to the source go out the window when you’re convinced the source links are going to die within days even though the announcement explicitly said the website is staying up as an archive?? the world may never know, 420hearditfromthevine6969, we may just never know.

The mind of a Swiftie

“Taylor Swift”

“I need to check tumblr”

“Why is Taylor never on tumblr when I am on tumblr?”

“Why isn’t the radio playing Taylor Swift?”

“Which Taylor Swift shirt should I wear?”

“I can’t wait another two years to see Taylor again”

“Is there even a ten minute version of All Too Well or was that all a lie?”

“I just need to hug Taylor right now”

“How does Taylor have time to sleep?”

“Why does Taylor wear heels when she is already tall?”

“How does she walk in those heels”

“Can I work for Taylor Nation?”

“I wonder what Taylor is doing right now”

“Taylor’s squad is flawless”

“How do people get so many notes on their posts?”

“Why do people hate Taylor Swift?”

Why does Betty bring up more clues anytime Jughead talks about they're relationship? I know she likes him but it's interesting that they would yet again have her have that response-- and side note-- somehow, someway, Archie, after screwing over Betty, is actually making me feel bad for him, make it stop!

I think they are avoiding a canon moment where Betty and Jughead define their relationship right now. Letting it build slow, add suspense, maybe even let Jughead be confused on where they stand. Considering Betty’s character and how in love with Archie she has been her entire life, it probably feels seriously weird and confusing to be having feelings for Jughead, when some part of her probably still feels something for Archie. So she’s probably just letting it process while she puts the more important stuff first. It makes sense to me, but it’s definitely there on purpose. Plus if she was 100% canonically into Jughead, like falling in love with him (like he is obviously doing with her), then there would be no reason to build an Betty/Archie/Jughead triangle and trust me, thats happening. 

As far as Archie, I think you feel bad for him because this is the first episode where he wasn’t concerned with himself. He was genuinely worried about Betty and Jughead and helping his friends in any way he could. He finally got a foot in on the important/heavier story arcs and handled things the way “good old classic Archie” would- with a warm caring heart. It was character development, which is what any  character needs for you to attach yourselves to them, root for them, etc. His development in this episode is part of the reason why I think it was the best written yet. 

And of course this all of a sudden magically makes you remember/root for the connection between Betty and Archie again! That’s purposeful, I mean how convenient the episode where Archie gets development and you start to really like him is also the episode he finds out about Jughead/Betty (but that doesn’t mean that his obvious canon moments of confusion in feelings for her during that episode aren’t first and foremost fueled by jealousy and probably a little envy). Her attention has moved somewhere else and she’s looking elsewhere for comfort for probably the first time like, ever.. And because Archie’s becoming more likable, you have more reason to innately feel bad about that and feel bad for him, because the writers are reminding you of their chemistry and their connection.

 This is all being put in place so the writers can eventually build another love triangle. If they didn’t do that, and then all of a sudden the Betty/Archie/Juggie love triangle was formed out of nowhere and Betty and Jughead were SO mutually and canonically head over heels for each other, no one would root for Betty/Archie. And the whole thing is needing to build tension and even the stakes (See- Elena/Stefan/Damon: The Early Years).

Y’all think writers hate ship wars, for some reason. THat’s so crazy. Writers LOVE when the fans fight over ships, are you kidding me? That means they are writing multiple characters and relationships that people can root for and drama that the audience is addicted too. They live for this stuff. They are writers of DRAMA!

overheard in choir

- “i’m never going to learn the bass clef. what are the lines again?”
“GBDFA. just remember: George Bush Does Fucking Adderall.”

- “what note do we start on at measure 99?” [chorus of ‘i don’t know’s] “i honestly don’t know why i even asked.”

- “i would actually kill a man to be a soprano i.” “SAME”

- “remember when you blew snot on the floor during the holiday concert last year?? GOOD TIMES.”

- “the altos and the basses sing the same notes an octave apart for this song……….i’m an alto and he’s a bass………this is some kind of symbolism……..we’re meant to be……”

- “musictheory.net is my laptop’s homepage.”

- “listen. we’re never going to sing welcome to the black parade. give up the dream.”

- “she just told me that she’s ‘worried they won’t be able to hear her solo in the back of the auditorium’. like?? the entire earth’s population heard you. the composer of this song just heard you in his fucking grave. calm down.”

- “i forgot i was using pen just now and i almost wrote in my music with it. my life literally just flashed before my eyes.”

- “i stole my teacher’s copy of twilight from the chorus room in 6th grade, and that’s how i knew choir was going to be the start of my life of crime.”

- “what language is this song in?” “suffering”

- “he always gets a boner during a cappella performances”

- “the shit that goes on in this music department………we should have a soap opera. the decrescendos of our lives.”

“Huh, cool, you’re actually hollow.”

I have returned, and I have many questions.

1: Greed’s a wanted man, so why did absolutely no one know about the Ouroboros tattoos? It may be that Greed having one is noted and on file from eyewitnesses, and Mustang and co. simply didn’t connect the dots with this “separate” and “unrelated” case. (On that note, a careful rewatch of the prior scene showed me he does indeed have the tattoo– on the back of his left hand. I suppose this equates with greediness in that you use hands to take things?)

2: Greed was just now confirming for himself that Alphonse is hollow. Unless he’s being a sarcastic arse, then… Well, Lust and Envy seemed to know full well everything about Edward and Alphonse, even marking Ed a “special sacrifice.” So why is Greed out of the loop?

3: Greed having some human-like Chimera minions working for him… I would think that the Deadly Sins alone, what with each having (presumeably) supernatural abilities would be enough. So why have these minions?

4: WHAT DOES HE WANT WITH ALPHONSE

Didn’t see this in the tag so let me just…

Of all his drawings, this is the only one with hearts and with both characters smiling

Also this:

Why does he have a Denver Nuggets ticket? You know… That team Kyle likes and would love to join someday. Also does he even like basketball at all?

And finally… This note that Douchebag doesn’t want to look at.

Kyle is sun?…

FUCK?

What does it sayyyyyyy?
