written sayings

How do I tell the Speechless writers that they do a great job but they NEED to word a few things just a bit differently, and I, a fully qualified disabled person with almost a decade’s experience in the community, am the person they should hire to review their scripts for next to nothing?

Ever heard of those soul mate aus where they have the first thing they heard their s/o say written on them? Imagine Taka has a bunch of swears words on his his arm and is just "I'm gonna fall in love with a criminal?!" And Mondo has a long lecture about morals and discipline written on him and he's all. "Fuck, I'm gonna marry a nerd?!"

i gotta write a fanfic about this … i just gotta

i love soulmate aus so much

i hate when scientists on tv are like ‘this planet cant have aliens on it because there’s no water! the atmosphere is wrong! theres not enough heat to sustain life!’ because dude theyre aliens, nobodys saying they need any of those things to exist

you can love villains and anti-heroes and antagonists without justifying their behaviour, You don’t have to make up excuses for the horrible shit they do. It’s totally fine to love these characters as they are, to accept the ugly parts of them- that doesn’t mean that you agree with the choices they make, it just means that you happen to love complex and three dimensional individuals.

An observation of Markiplier TV

Emphasis on the observation part because I’ve never really been good with theories. I have a number of things to do today but unfortunately, I watched this video and now I can’t stop thinking about it. Hopefully this’ll quiet my mind and let me function, and who knows? Maybe it’ll help someone out there with their own theories too. :)

So, let’s talk about this scene:

We got one hell of a group here BUT what I’d like to focus on is their seating arrangement and what that could mean, because if there’s anything I’ve learned in videos like this it’s that EVERYTHING is by design. This entire table scene (props to the Editor btw) has so much hidden psychological subtext in it, so while I’m no professional I’ll still do my best to uncover them all.

First off, let’s look at the table: Rectangular with two long ends and two short ones. Pretty normal setting yeah, but is it beneficial to their situation (i.e. finding a way to ‘take control’) where everyone easily agrees? Nope. Because tables like these embody competition and a clear sense of authority, and I love this detail. It means that while they could’ve easily gone for a round table to promote cooperation, they go for this because of course, no one’s going to cooperate that easily.

This setting, however, works better in the business cooperative world, because you got two people (Darkiplier & Wilford) who can control the meeting from both ends of the table and are essentially the people everyone will need to look up to.

Here’s a great detail though: In this kind of setting, the more powerful of the two is usually the one opposite the entrance to the room. This allows him not just a vantage point of whoever comes in and goes, but complete control as well. And as we see where King of the Squirrels pops up:

Which we can easily tell was from the right of the room based on the direction his body and eyes shift to, we can point out where the entrance is and who was right there:

But yeah, in this moment it didn’t seem like Will had control over King’s sudden entrance but let’s face it: he doesn’t care. He already knows that there’s more than one king in that room.

Speaking of, let’s move on to the seating arrangement.

Obviously we got Dark and Will at the ends as the higher ups, but I’d like to talk about Googleplier and The Host.

In medieval times, kings would often have their advisors right at their side at the table. This actually explains the term “right hand man”, because the king would have them close at hand to help him rule, unless of course, he was left-handed. Looking back at Dark’s antics, I have reason to believe that he’s either left-handed or ambidextrous.

Which I guess would make sense, considering that while Ed, Bim, Silver and Dr. Iplier were all concerned about their parts in the video, only Google and The Host were able to keep a level head and not lose sight of their main goal/situation.

Now the last thing I want to talk about is Wilford’s idea for Markiplier TV. I must warn you though because this is going to be a bit of a stretch so stop reading if you’d like BUT… I think he may have been inspired by Anti.

AGAIN, please bear with me. Jack’s mentioned before that Dark and Anti ever meeting each other was very unlikely, which in Dark’s case (being the alter ego that’s been pushed inside the most) could be more than true. However, Wilford makes up for this as he’s the only one not bound by the laws of physics and is, potentially, omnipresent. So it’s possible that he’s aware of Anti (since he was aware of Septiplier after all) and his methods (i.e. using social media to have his fans notice him which then gives him control) BUT, being Wilford, he goes about it in his own roundabout way which is, of course, TELEVISION.

So, yeah, this is all I can come up with. Excluding my attempt in theorizing at the very end I hope this was helpful. Now I’m just hoping that my thoughts on Antisepticeye don’t get too hectic and end up like this long wall of text. Thanks for reading. :)

so there’s this part in chapter 62 where simon and baz are lying on the carpet in front of the fireplace holding hands, and when baz asks simon if he was on the List Of Things to Not Think About, simon says ‘trying not to think about you is like trying not to think about an elephant thats standing on ur chest’ and baz just has a good few moments of fond reflection before he starts smiling and says 'i dont know if that’s a compliment or…’ and they’re giggling and idk the idea that baz is a teenaged boy still baffles me sometimes, but its scenes like that one where the casualness of it is so lovely? its easy to relate to and thats what makes reading carry on so nice

i just need to get it off my chest
yeah, more than you know (/\)

Just a quick note to say I didn’t forget Tomorrow There’ll Be More of Us, I just decided against including it because, in Lin’s own words, it’s more of a scene than a song. Really it’s just the The Story of Tonight sung over some quite, uneventful dialouge (very poetic given the content of that dialouge) so I decided to just leave it out. Anyways thanks for reading my random post I guess? Bye bye

Listen, when I say that I like the Erik, I’m not saying I approve of everything he did, I’m saying I appreciate the complexity and intricacy that was put into his character. He was not only the protagonist, but also the antagonist of the story, therefore he’s GOING to do bad things. It’s perfectly fine for me to like a ‘bad’ character without having to explain it. Torment has an affect on people and it did on Erik, too. Please stop shaming people who appreciate his character.

THE BOX!!!!! TAYLOR WAS IN THE BOX!!!! BUT NOT JUST ANY TAYLOR!!!!

ALL OF THE FUCKING OLD TAYLORS WERE IN THE BOX

the box rumors started on may 6, 2017 when this pictures was taken and a subsequent article was written saying that taylor was hiding in the box.

at the time, tumblr was joking around that she was in the box. joseph kahn said they started filming the LWYMMD video in may. taylor had a bunch of her old outfits in the music video. i’d be willing to bet that that giant box was filled with a bunch of her outfits for the video. they couldn’t just carry them out of her apartment because then we would’ve seen them and been like “???? why does she need those????” and with how detective-y we are, we would’ve probably figured it out or gotten close to figuring it out.

so, no, taylor swift was not in the box. but, at the same time SHE WAS IN THE BOX

Tips for Storm Witches

• Don’t snub checking the forecast! It helps to know what the day’s weather is predicted to be in case you’re doing things outdoors or casting spells that rely on certain weather conditions.

• Warm fronts are generally followed by cold fronts. If you’re waiting on some thunderstorms, just watch for a warm front to pass through.

• Back to forecasts, the chance of rain is read in a different way than it is written. If the forecast says a 70% chance of rain, it actually means that in 7 of 10 days with those conditions, it rained.

• Instead of waiting for the weather conditions to align for a spell, use sigils to stimulate the conditions.

• A storm’s energy can be stored in crystals for later use. Just in case the perfect storm happens when you didn’t plan on casting that spell.

• The clouds can predict upcoming weather. High cirrus clouds usually indicate rain within 48 hours.

• Another way to stimulate a storm is through ambient sound. There are plenty of recordings out there to listen to!

• Sit and watch a rainstorm or a thunderstorm. Its energizing and relaxing!

this is all the evidence you need that Annabeth is the rule breaker and Percy is the goody two shoes who doesnt want to get in trouble (because at 13 he’s already tired of it)
