I’m not sure if people realize this, but in Japanese Musashi actually has a really distinct way of speaking that’s actually really similar to how Mitsuru talks. They both use very relaxed, casual language that gives off an almost sleepy sort of feel, but like Musashi’s is somehow even more relaxed than Mitsuru’s, like it’s incredibly chill and laid back.
And here’s the thing, like, Musashi didn’t really start talking that way until after the tournament when he lost his flames and went back to be being ‘just a normal prisoner.’ Like after he got rid of his powers and learned Kenshirou was gonna go after the man with the scar he just…stopped being so tense, I guess??
And I dunno man, I just really like the way Musashi talks now. He’s gone from being the angry fire dude trying to kill Jyugo to literally the most chill person in all of Nanba, even more chill than Mitsuru of all people, and listen man I just, I think that’s the most beautiful thing to happen to this guy, he deserves this so much. He deserves to be safe and happy and to have all the afternoon naps he could want ‘cause he’s just. So pure??
Listen he’s just a really good character and I’m really happy with how far he’s come okay listen
Well um… yeah it happened..! 😬 I went from black… that I LOVED to..

I tried avoiding this mini rant/ airing of thoughts, but… I can’t!
I’ve been scarce from dA for… months? And I’m honestly limiting my time there for a host of reasons I won’t bring up here. (I’ve said them before anyway.) I can’t help but notice one of my very old pieces in particular (the megaloceros, done in 2008-9) won’t stop getting notifications. Like, 20+ a day, for several weeks now. It didn’t get a daily deviation awarded to it, and I’m sure I’d figure out why it was drawing traffic if I did some google fu, but part of me is reluctant to know where the traffic is coming from.
Call me selfish, but… I’m not fond of my old, time-stamped art being dragged back out into the light of day to flood my notifications. I know, people only mean well, and I think about that each time this happens, I truly do. Sometimes the fact that something is old doesn’t even occur to people sharing the art in the first place. But I have to tell you, it’s hard not to be discouraged when people regularly ignore your new work in favor of some dusty old pieces completed a lifetime ago.
Yes. I am a curmudgeon! The tendency for popular works to only become more popular is also a thorn in my side. Which gives me only one choice: to clear/store any works in the gallery over 5 years of age, while my Society6 will have some of said works available as prints/etc. To avoid the emotional outbursts this sort of thing tends to solicit, I won’t be announcing when I plan to do so. I can’t help it, I need a good art gallery PURGE!!!
(If it makes sense, I am the sort of person who destroys/gets rid of old sketchbooks as soon as they reach the “eyes bleeding” level of cringe. I don’t get nostalgic, and I don’t look back. I also don’t have infinite space for old art garbage to pile up.)
everyone's just like "yee Yona's powers!!!" and "ooo it's the shield!!!" and I'm just like "Hak and Yona will have a talk!! YES!!!!!! Finally!!!!!!!! Gobi hurry up already!! Ain't no time for you when Hakona is going to have a talk!!!!!" I was wondering so. many. times. how they will deal with the kiss matter after the war is settled, like, will Yona approach him? Hak approach her? Will Yona pretend like nothing happened? Will Hak be super flirty? Or smth. completely different? AHH I cant wait!!
Hahaha, I get your feeling anon! I mean, of course this dragon… thing (I dunno if I wanna call it the shield just yet) is super cool, but I have been very strongly advocating a serious Hakona talk for a loooong time. In fact, I’d argue that the only reason I haven’t grown slightly annoyed that they haven’t sat down and spoken yet is because they are in a war right now and it’s quite understandable that they would have other priorities.
But, as such, I was suuuuuper happy to read that Hak wants to talk. And because it’s been seriously suggested I’m hoping that, well, not only that’ll it’ll actually happen (please don’t let this be a false hope) but also that both will be able to talk properly - as in, no mucking about or trying to dodge it because it kinda came out of nowhere. Hak seems to genuinely want to talk and I’m happy he does, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that something great comes of this and finally fills my (and your, anon) need for them to have a serious discussion.
char is a goddess, and it is still her birthday (thank u time difference)
airport au, based on this, but not 100% similar. enjoy :)
“Yeah, dad, it’s only a short delay, I should be arriving at 7 or so,” Stiles said, tucking the phone between his ear and his shoulder as he scoured the crowded airport for a free outlet. “No, dad, you don’t need to pick me up, I can catch a cab home, I’ll be fine.”
“You think I’d let my only son take a cab home after I haven’t seen him for a year?” his dad’s tinny voice rang out sharply over the line, and Stiles smiled fondly. “I don’t know who you’ve been hanging around with, son, but I’m picking you up, and that’s the end of that. I even made sure they gave me the night off.”
“That’s great dad,” Stiles told him honestly, before his eyes widened when he caught a glimpse of a free outlet next to… was that Derek Hale? “I’ll see you tonight,” he blurted out, heading over to get a closer look at the sleeping guy. “Holy shit.”
“Language,” the Sheriff reprimanded, and Stiles winced.
“Sorry, dad. I gotta go, ‘kay? Love you,” he said absently, settling his backpack down onto the ground and unslinging his messenger bag from his shoulders, cursing silently when the strap got tangled in his earphones.
“Yeah, love you too, kid. Have a safe trip.”
At the sound of the click, Stiles ripped his earbuds out and fumbled to untangle them when his bag’s strap slid a few inches in his grasp, knocking against Derek’s bent knees. “Shit,” he breathed out, eyes wide and horrified. He waited for a few moments, unmoving, before letting out a relieved breath when Derek didn’t wake. He folded himself down a few steps away, cursing the fact that he had left his extension cord back in Beacon Hills, and his charger was unfortunately short, rendering him incapable of moving further out and admiring Derek from after, like he used to.
He let out a sigh at the thought of his first few years of high school. Derek had been the basketball team captain, two years older than Stiles, and the only reason he hadn’t tried out for the team was the burning fear that he’d trip Derek up by accident during the tryouts and spend the rest of his high school career eating his lunch next to the dumpsters. Sarcastic and terrifying tended to be Stiles’ type, evidenced by one Lydia Martin and Derek himself.
Although, looking down at Derek now, his lashes dark smudges against his cheeks and his mouth shut in a little pout looking all sleepy and adorable, he probably wouldn’t be able to tell that Derek had allegedly got the 6’6” football quarterback to cry and apologize to Jessica Rawlings, a girl in Stiles’ year. Last he heard, Derek had gone off to the East Coast for college, following the footsteps of all his older siblings.
Jeez hi hey hello you've seen me a lot lately xD but i was wondering whether you think Karen will appear later in the series? Like appearing in an episode or two in the first 6 episodes then more on in the later ones? Based on the reviews and such! :) And do you know where the Frank x Mirco's wife came from?? Like?? And do you think the writers really /will/ go the Frank x Sharon (I think that's what Mirco's wife is called??? idk) route? Because to me it just seems like bad writing????
One thing I’ve taken away from these reviews of the first 6 episodes, is that it’s a case of quality over quantity. Ok, maybe Karen isn’t in everything, but from the sounds of it, her scenes with Frank are a highlight and incredibly impactful. I’d rather have that than the writers attempting to shove scenes in there for the sake of it. And who knows what the back 7 episodes hold!
Yeah, I think she’ll appear in the second half!! I just think it makes sense for the pacing of the scenes they’ve given us confirmation of. Like all Netflix Marvel shows, by all indications this one starts off slow as well. And we don’t know just how long Frank has the beard? But I recall from the review about the ‘man bun’ joke that this particular kastle interaction takes place in episode 2. Still has the long hair, still has the beard.
So, with that in mind, there’s this tweet thread:
Perhaps this is said during one of the bench scenes? And/or the apartment scene? Somewhere else? Whatever the case, Frank’s still rocking that initial look (because we know the order of things is him shaving his long hair before the beard based on set pictures).
I highly doubt there’s enough of a time-jump for him to get all the way into shaven face/grown-out crew cut AND Karen in danger to do both the panicking scene with Micro and then the waterfront with Karen (as I’m still presuming the two to be in some order shown near each other). Plus, outburst aside, Micro and Frank are quite comfortable in that scene (Frank wanting Micro to be clear that Karen is ‘family’ without fear of divulging that, Micro treating Frank’s anger with the Dad Sigh). Too comfortable and settled into cohabitation for us to only be two episodes in.
So, I’m going to very cautiously say that I think the waterfront and explosion sequences (or at the very least the explosion ones) are likely to be in the back-end of the 13 episodes? Which spreads out Karen’s scenes in a pretty interesting way and, if it’s the case, spreads out her impact on Frank’s emotional state more evenly across the whole season as well.
Also– supporting evidence, perhaps. The review from Black Girl Nerds, I believe it was, mentions Karen digging up an old article or bits of information on David Lieberman (Micro). Karen could very well help Frank in these initial episodes uncover Micro’s true identity and be the one to help put him on the path of turning the tables on Micro when he goes to the man’s house, creating this antagonizing dynamic before they collide and meet properly at the hideout/lair maybe and become roommates. In that case, even more reason to think Karen’s in the latter half? That’s a lot of story to rush through (showing all her scenes in the first half when this indicates she’s only in 2/3 of 6, I mean) in a show that keeps getting billed as a slow burn of sorts. Food for thought!
[ @bambi-sims I have another ask about that Frank/Sarah thing, and a few more thoughts on it as well, so I’ll tag you when I answer it!! ]
You know,,,,, I talk to my mom about klance but I never tell her about the interviews and stuff,, I only show her like official scenes from the show and thats it. But, when I was telling her about the chances of klance being canon today, she was like, yeah it would be kinda slow burn then, right? And I'm like hOLY SHIT
I'm having weird feeling over all the Anti stuff recently. I love the glitch bitch, but I'm not as attentive as everyone else seems to be? My first reaction when I saw the green hair was 'fuck yeah! Dark green!' but then my tumblr feed is all 'antiantiantiantianti'. And then I'm like 'oh yeah, that too'. I'm pretty slow on the uptake and I feel...weird about it. I dunno how to explain, but I wanna be as excited about this and I know that I can be but it just.... Well, I dunno. Sorry about this
Well, not being as attentive isn’t a bad thing! I honestly didn’t notice the word behind him until my friend Elisa pointed it out to me.
As glassworkers as well as desert dwellers, members of the Sagolii branch of the Lynx tribe which X’rena/Syrena hails from have a fair fixation on heat and fire. Kits of the tribe grow up watching their elders incorporating flame not only into their glassblowing livelihood, but into their dances, and therefore their celebrations, mournings, rituals and ceremonies. Generally, this takes the form of fireside dances, but a handful of skilled members of the tribe utilize flaming poi.
Despite no longer affiliating herself with her birth tribe, Syrena still retains her love of her tribe’s native dance forms, and fire poi remain one of her two favourite dance props (with the other being isis wings).
