a/n: for anon who requested it months ago im so sorry this took so long but i hope it was worth :^) 

The blinking line on his blank document was laughing at him. He swore it was laughing at him and has been laughing at him for the past half an hour since he sat down and fired up the program. One word, backspace. Three words, backspace. One fucking sentence, he fucking backspaced. He let out a growl of frustration as he pushed back from his desk, rubbing his eyes as if the pain would clear up any part of his brain – preferably the one that didn’t make him sound like a five year old storybook. He might as well have typed “The wife is a sadist who accidentally killed her husband mid-fuck.”

Grabbing his robe, he quickly tugged it on and padded over to the kitchen to pour himself a blistering hot cup of coffee. His answering machine had picked up seven missed calls, probably from his editor cursing him out for missing his calls.

He couldn’t be bothered to listen to any of them or even handle his editor’s desire to tear him a new one when he was so tempted to do it himself. His last book had been published a few months ago. Usually, by the time one was stocked up on the shelves, he’d be working on the next as he cashed in whatever the latest one was making. However, with the last few miserable months, everything he printed looked like a shit stain on a piece of paper. Even his editor, who was down to his last string of patience, thought so.

Things used to come naturally to Namjoon. All the sophisticated whatnot, all the carefully intricate plots that wove themselves onto the blank pages in fabricated fiction. He didn’t know what happened to him. He’s never had a muse except for his own messed-up life so it wasn’t possible that (as what his readers and critics believed at least) his inspiration had evaporated into thin air.

Namjoon perhaps knew what had been happening, what he saw from three books away. But he wasn’t about to fucking admit it because that shit didn’t happen to the genius, versatile writer, Kim Namjoon. Whatever he wrote turned into gold, selling nearly as many copies as the holy Bible. If his jittery nerves wasn’t enough evidence of his problem, then the coffee cup shaking in his earthquake of a hand was. As the realization sank in, he was finally hit with the cold hard truth.

Kim Namjoon had hit writer’s block.

You sat up straight in your chair when you heard it. The tiny, faint meow of a kitten. You looked between Sam and Dean, who had seemingly not heard it.

“Did you hear a cat?” you asked.

“Y/N, we don’t have a cat, we’re not getting a cat, let it go.” Dean said, never looking up from the computer screen.

But then you heard it again.

“How can you guys not hear that?” you got up, ignoring the looks you were getting that suggested you were crazy, and began walking in the direction the small meow came from.

After hearing the tiny noise a few more times you found yourself in the storage room in front of the dungeon. In the corner, there was a cardboard box with holes poked in it. You walked over to it, sat down, and opened it up, happy to find a tiny orange kitten inside.

“Hey there little dude, how’d you get in here?” you asked the small fuzzball as you cuddled it in your arms.

“Y/N, that was supposed to be a surprise.” you turned to see Cas standing there holding a bag of cat food and a box of litter.

“Well the poor little guy’s been meowing up a storm!” you directed your words to the tiny cat in a baby voice. The kitten must’ve gotten lonely when Cas left it alone to get supplies.

Cas stepped forward and sat down next to you on the floor, motioning for you to hand the kitten over. You gave him a funny look before allowing the cat to leap into Cas’ lap. It had clearly already chosen a favorite, and it wasn’t you.

“Looks like your it’s new mother.” you joked as Cas let it climb up onto his shoulder.

“We should name him.” he said, a small smile tugging at his mouth.

“What do you want to name him?”

“I think we should call him Kitty. It’s fitting, considering he’s a cat.” You laughed at the name he’d chosen, thinking that you would’ve named him the same thing.

“How about Mr. Kitty?” you suggested.

“I like it-” Cas smiled at you a leaned in for a kiss, Mr. Kitty hopping from his shoulder to yours as you smiled against his lips.

Kohei Horikoshi’s Interview with ESJ (Jump Festa 2017)

To you, what does it mean to be a hero?

Someone who gives you peace of mind. Someone who, when they arrive, makes you think that everything’s going to be all right. Someone you trust, someone who makes you feel safe. It’s not something that’s fully fleshed out in my mind just yet. It’s something that has multiple sides and is still changing. But I think the sense of making you feel safe, feel secure, is one of the most important things.

What did you learn from your previous serialisations in Shonen Jump that you’ve used in My Hero Academia?

The main thing was not to repeat mistakes I’ve made in the past. That’s somewhat of a negative way of using the lessons I’ve learned, but for example, if I felt off about something, I didn’t do it in My Hero Academia.

What is your weekly routine like?

I spend a lot of time on the storyboards. Sometimes up to six days. Then I spend about a day on the final art. Though it’s not like I use those six days all on the storyboards. It takes me a while before I can get the engine revving and say, “Let’s do this!”

Only one day for the final art?!

Yeah, it’s kind of unbelievable, isn’t it?

How does your editor help you?

At the beginning, I’ll talk about what kind of story I want to tell. At that point, he’ll bring up different suggestions, like what to do specifically and what kind of characters to introduce. He’ll help me come up with the framework. I couldn’t create a manga without his help, so he’s indispensable. 

(Editor)- I should leave the room so he’ll tell you how he actually feels. (laughs)

No, no, no. That is how I really feel.

Did American comics or superhero movies influence My Hero Academia?

Yes, of course. Spider-Man is a huge influence - the fact that he’s a teenage hero. I’m influenced by a lot of those works.

Have you been watching all of the superhero movies?

Probably not all of them, but most of them.

I’ve heard good things about Dr. Strange.

Oh yeah! When does that come out? I’ll have to see it. I’ll make sure to watch it in theaters.

If you could draw a crossover with any American comic, which one would it be?

It would have to be Spider-Man. If I could.

You have an amazing collection of toys and figurines. Do you have a favourite?

Yes, the Hulk Buster figure. It’s huge and I love it.

Which of the characters in My Hero Academia is most like you and why?

I think it’s the main character, Midoriya. He’s actually pretty negative in his thinking, and that’s a lot like me. I can’t help but put myself into the character from time to time.

Bakugou is a pretty unusual hero-type. Is there anything that inspired creating a character like him as a good guy?

My previous series Omagatoki Zoo had a character that was like a prototype of Bakugou. He was fun to draw and pretty popular among the readers, so I realised I could make this type of character work. I reworked that character a bit for Bakugou. So that would be my inspiration. 

Why did you make him a good guy?

I don’t really draw him as a good guy. I draw him as a big jerk, but I add in layers where he’s working really hard in his own way to be a hero. It’s rather complicated, even to me. “Why the heck is this guy a hero? What a jerk!” (laughs)

Were you surprised by his popularity?

Yes! I thought he would be hated at first. So seeing him so popular was a big surprise to me.

Which characters might be getting a bigger role in 2017?

Let’s see… Obviously, Deku will have a big role, but…

Is it the year of Mineta?

(laughs) That would be hilarious, Well, I don’t know if it will make it into 2017, but there’s a character named Shinsou who will have some interesting development.

How does it feel to come to an event like Jump Festa and interact with the fans?

All I did was stand up on the stage, so I’m not sure if it counts as interacting… but seeing that many fans come out made me so happy. Though, being on stage, I wanted to get off and run away as quickly as possible. (laughs)

When you were introduced and walked on through the flashy lights and smoke, did you think, “Now, this is a hero’s entrance!”?

No, not at all. (laughs) I was embarrassed.

Thank you for taking the time to chat with us!

He didn’t understand.

Inhale. Exhale.

Deep breaths, Yoon Oh.

He didn’t realize he was clenching his jaw so fiercely until his teeth began to ache, lips cracked and the scent of iron seeping into his peripheral, the taste heavy on his tongue and assimilating itself into the smell of alcohol that hung in the air.

He couldn’t tell if it was his or theirs, or a mix of both.

Cold fingers curled and uncurled, unable to thaw in the pitch black night, the orange glow of the street lamp doing nothing but illuminating his act (as if showcasing his sins, finalizing the position he had taken).

It was mocking him.

He took in sharp breaths, suddenly feeling terribly constricted in the silent atmosphere where he couldn’t hear anything but the gasps that tore out of his throat. Tilting his head up into the starless, empty sky, finding no difference in his vision when he closed and opened his eyes, he desperately tried to rid himself of the spinning world around him.

Deep breaths.

He shook his head to rid himself of the nausea, legs wobbling, stumbling, as if trying to get him away from the scene in front of him.

In a blind rush of shock at his actions, the back of his hands were rubbing against his jacket in a furious frenzy, but the red on his hands only appeared to be of a lighter and lighter shade, never quite disappearing.

The black color of his jacket only grew darker, like a stigma marking him guilty.

His eyes, the right side of his face, his abdomen, his shoulder - everything - burned, and before he knew it, he had turned around, and his legs were running, running, running; because no, he didn’t, he didn’t do anything wrong.

So why did he feel so nauseous?

The icy air cut against him in a weak attempt to push him back, his shoes growing heavier and heavier against the asphalt.

And in the midst of it all, he never stopped to wonder.

Why was it that he didn’t regret anything?

Thom said he'll be scoring a horror film soon and he's listening to some weird shit to get inspired for it. Ed says they want to host two day festivals later where they play with bands they really like and then Radiohead would play a completely different set list on the second day than they did on the first. look at reddit radiohead

yes, i know! I’m so excited about all of this, Ed’s solo album, new tour debuts, (i’m still hopeful for some new songs), and that thom thing… interesting!

“Chris is such force of nature and I was so proud of him and what he created and what he’s done and his honesty with his life and the way he works. It’s really inspiring. So yes, yes I did enjoy it very much.” 

A lot of fans were wondering what it’s like to work with Chris Colfer. Jane Lynch once described him as, I think, an 80 year old woman in a teenage boy’s body. Would you agree with that, or how would you describe him yourself?
“I mean, I’ve spent most of my time with Chris, but I’ve only been there for a short amount of time. I really like Chris a whole lot, we get to geek out a lot of musical theatre things and I think we enjoy a lot of the same things in general. I think both of us strive to be generally fabulous on a day-to-day basis, so that’s something I like to relate to Chris about. But I read that Jane said that about him. I don’t know – maybe it’s because – well, I wouldn’t say that he’s an 80 year old woman. I’d say he’s more of like – he’s like a magical creature, like a really fun, magical.. I can’t figure out what entity I want to say. Yeah, he’s like… man, I’m trying to think of a good creature that’s like, awesome. He’s like a really playful wood nymph. A wood nymph that’s caught in Chris Colfer’s body. That’s what I would say, because he loves – he’s a really positive, playful guy. So wood nymph does it better for me than 80 year old woman. But then again, that might just be a difference in sentiment between me and Jane Lynch, because arguably, they are the same thing. Maybe wood nymphs are, in fact, 80 year old women, maybe that’s…”

m! idk if you remember me but I'm the flushed sub shawn anon, anyway I could really use some cheering up to get through the day


but just think of shawn waiting at home for you a cup of tea ready, blankets preheated (yes he did spend an hour just warming the bed), chocolate (he might have had a little of it) and a good movie (aka Harry Potter) think of cuddling up to him, his arms running up and down you arm, drawing shapes, kissing your forehead and holding you close.

i really hope you get through your day love I’m rooting for you 😚😚

everysinglepheel  asked:

2, 18, 21, 30

-How long have you been drawing?
Well the earliest I remember having drawn is about 9 or 10 years ago. Not as long as some people but I was never really encouraged to start or really even go through with it. I just did it on my own and drew for myself and now I’m here.

-What are you currently trying to improve on?
Well as of right now I am trying to get better at drawing more dynamic poses and perspectives. I’m kind of getting stale in that regard.

-Do you like to challenge yourself?
Yes, but I never can really think of how to do it so I ask my friends or other people what I should draw right then. It helps get practice with things I wouldn’t normally do or think to do.

-What inspires you to not just make art, but to be a better artist?
Seeing other artists improve and seeing how far they have come from when they started. Same for me, I like to look back at my earliest drawing and while I do laugh at how bad they were it makes me appreciate how far I’ve come and how far I can go from here. I have to remind myself that improvement doesn’t happen overnight. You improve slowly over time and even though you don’t really notice much now one day you’ll look back and be amazed at how far you’ve come. 

anonymous asked:

Did you ever feel like you wouldn't be able to get the grades you wanted for your uni choices? :/ I'm aiming for Cambridge so I need three As at AS at least but I keep getting Cs on my history paper and I just can't get the exam technique right. I'm really demotivated at the moment and worried I won't get in :(

Yes I definitely had worries about that - it’s good to have a bit of concern to inspire you to work harder, but not when it gets to the point that you don’t have motivation.

I know it’s hard, but try to see this as an opportunity to try your best and work hard to reach this goal. What I’d use to do was, when I was low on motivation, I’d think really hard and imagine what it would be like to open my results and see I’d got the grades for my offer, and the happiness I’d feel. 

Even if you try your best and don’t get the grades, that would be so much better than you not getting the grades and knowing that you might have been able to if you worked harder. If that makes sense. x

The Gotei-13 and their Favorite Things about the World of the Living

As requested by anon. :)

At the request of the WSRA, Rukia is interviewing the Gotei-13 about their favorite aspects of the world of the living! 

1. Ikakku

Ikkaku: I’d have to say - convenience store cashiers!

Ikkaku: They are just…so amazing.

Ikkaku: Their ability to pack food with incredible speed and accuracy still blows my mind.

Ikkaku: Cashiers will definitely be soul reapers after they die.

2. Matsumoto

Matsumoto: The shopping for sure! Clothes! Food! Accessories!

Matsumoto: Not to mention the free storage!

Rukia: Yeah, Ichigo’s room is great for that.

Ichigo (in the distance): MY ROOM IS NOT FREE STORAGE

3. Soi Fon

Soi Fon: Ever since Yoruichi-sama told me about them, I have been a fan of the Olympics.

Soi Fon: Every four years the humans honor the fastest and strongest among them.

Soi Fon: So at least they have their priorities right - occasionally.

4. Sasakibe

Sasakibe: England.

Rukia: Just, the whole country?

Sasakibe: Yes.

Sasakibe: Hopefully it’s where soul reapers go when they die.

Rukia: …

Rukia: Is that how anything works?

Sasakibe: It’s a dream.

5. Shinji

Shinji: Jazz records - they’re the best thing from the world of the living!

Shinji: Not to mention giant headphones.

Shinji: Cool clothes.

Shinji: Of course, anything would look cool on me!

Rukia: …


6. Komamura

Komamura: In the world of the living, there are places where dogs can shop! That’s amazing!

Komamura: Shops filled with products for dogs to buy!

Rukia: Yeah, that’s pretty great!

7. Hisagi

Hisagi: Well, I guess I kinda like…

Hisagi: [looks around]

Hisagi (whispers): Motor-

Kensei (in the distance): NO MOTORCYCLES SHUHEI

Hisagi: H-how does he know??

8. Iba

Iba: I’d have to say - swimsuit calendars!

Rukia: …really?

Iba: Yes! Every month a new shirtless man to inspire me to manliness!

Rukia: …

Rukia: Oh, swimsuit calendars featuring men?

Iba: What did you think I meant?

9. Rose

Rose: I miss live concerts, to be honest.

Rose: Live concerts just aren’t something Soul Society really offers.

Rose: Unless Shuhei gets his garage band off the ground!

10. Isane

Isane: Maybe the sweets?

Isane: N-not that I have sweets very often!

Isane: But the world of the living sure does have some good ones!

11. Byakuya

Byakuya: The world of the living is filled with an enormous variety of hair care products.

Rukia: N-Nii-sama, you like human hair care products?

Byakuya: You misunderstand.

Byakuya: Here we do not have such variety, and yet my hair looks like this.

Byakuya: There they have many options and yet produce humans with hair like Kurosaki Ichigo.

Byakuya: It is a source of pride.

12. Ukitake

Ukitake: I’d have to say the humans, to be honest! They’re pretty amazing!

Ukitake: Kurosaki of course…Inoue Orihime…even, according to Kyoraku, Kurosaki’s human friends!

Ukitake: They just try so hard and accomplish so much!

Ukitake: And they helped you when nobody else would.

Rukia: Captain!

Ukitake: Humans are great.

13. Kurotsuchi

Kurotsuchi: I’d have to say the humans, to be honest. Such a nice well of research subjects.

Kurotsuchi: Most humans will not do, of course, but there are so many that I can be assured that at least some of them will be…interesting.

Rukia: …

Kurotsuchi: Why aren’t you writing this down?

14. Yachiru

Yachiru: Halloween is great! A day when kids go door to door and are given enormous bowls of candy!

Rukia: I don’t think you’re supposed to take the whole bowl, President!

15. Renji

Renji: I like how cool I look in human world clothes!

Rukia: …

Renji: Especially the tie-dye and the bandanna.

Rukia: …

Renji: Not that I want to look like a human teenager, but I definitely fit in well!

Rukia: …

Renji: Are you giggling?!

16. Hitsugaya

Hitsugaya: I was there on business. Not as a tourist. But I guess the soccer was kind of fun.

Rukia: So you liked playing soccer with Ichigo’s little sister, huh?


17. Aizen

Aizen: I like controlling the lives of humans as if I am a god and them tiny insects.

Rukia: …

Aizen: …

Rukia: …

Aizen: …

Rukia: Why did I even bother interviewing you?

mypiafan  asked:

Imagine Jamie survived Culloden and went through the stones and wind up in the hospital where Claire is now a Doctor. Frank is not in the picture. :)

[Eloise comments: So due to a joke and the resulting draft conversation, this turned into a somewhat strange AU. This is dedicated to the amazing Mod Wheel, whose birthday passed recently. Happy hedgehog, Wheel!]

“They certainly have you looking lovely, mo nighean donn,” laughed Jamie as a scruffy, ridiculously-clothed Doctor stepped out of the familiar blue police box on-screen.

“Oh stuff it.” The Doctor replied, settling in beside her companion with some tea and toast.

“With pleasure!” He replied, snatching a slice of toast off her plate.

“Oi!” She made a grab for the toast, but he gobbled it up before she could snatch it back.

“I like bananas!” Jamie protested, as though that excused his actions. “Ye ken that.”

“I should never have introduced you to banana daiquiris” She grumbled, carefully balancing her plate on the armrest away from him before nearly overturning it as she gestured angrily at the TV.

“Honestly, why is it always a man? For a show with such imagination, you’d think they’d be able to conceive of a non-white and/or non-male timelord.”

“Weel they canna do that. After all, he is a doctor, aye?” He replied nonchalantly, washing his stolen snack down with a swig of coffee.

She turned to him, furious, to find him grinning foxishly back at her. 

“Watch yourself there laddie, or I’ll drop you in the Paeleolithic age and leave you to the mercy of the glyptodons and sabre-tooth tigers.”

“I could hold my own.” He said confidently, leaning back and propping his feet on the small coffee table. 

The Doctor snorted.

“And besides, ye’d come back.”

She raised her eyebrows “Oh would I?” 

“Ye ken ye’d get lonely without me, even if ye did have the nice-looking Nine lad the watch on the box.”

The Doctor grinned. “Don’t risk it, that’s one interpretation of me I have no problem spending lots of quality time with.”

Jamie opened his mouth to protest, brow furrowed in jealousy, before catching a glimpse of his own TV counterpart.

“Speaking of interpretations, I’m nothing like that gowk!” He exclaimed, gesturing at the mop-haired Scot talking with the TV Doctor.

The Doctor laughed. “Really? I think it’s a rather flattering portrayal.”

Jamie scowled. 

“I dinna ken why that lout inspired yon American to write about us.” He commented, with a nod to the blue book on one of the side tables whose cover bore a crown and thistle.

“Well, at least she got it mostly right, except for the nonsense about the Stones.” The Doctor allowed. 

Jamie cocked his head and hummed in agreement. “Hmm, and te be fair, ye did show up on Sanhaim, and a tad worse for the wear at that.”

“Damned Daleks.” The Doctor muttered, recalling the cold, wet night she’d met Jamie after one particular plan of hers went awry and she’d had to beat a hasty retreat. Unfortunately the Tardis had been a bit too enthusiastic about that course of action and had spit itself back out a few centuries later than she’d expected, and a few countries away from where she’d intended. 

“And it was some time before we made our way back to the wee large box.”
That too was true, the Doctor having been taken prisoner by the friendly MacKenzies and separated from the Tardis for a good few years. Luckily it had disguised itself as a faerie stone and, superstitions being what they were in Jacobite-era Scotland, nobody had dared take a closer look.

The Doctor took Jamie’s hand thinking, as he was, of their abandonment of his people. For all she’d explained that you can’t change a fixed point in time, it had been hard for them both – him in particular – to leave them to their fate. They had ensured Jamie’s family was as safe as they could be, and his tenants too, but in tying his fate to hers, he’d been unable to shape history himself as he would have. 

“It wouldn’t have worked, Jamie.” She reminded him for the hundredth time.

“I ken. And ye canna know how happy I am that I’m able to stay with ye. But…”

“You mourn it the life we could have had there.” It had been some years now, but the Doctor knew he still imagined them living in a large place with a couple of children running around. In another world, perhaps that would have been possible.

He nodded. “Aye, it would have been hard, but then, so is this. And in this, we’re alone.” He noted, reminding them both of that this little distraction was merely a way to calm their nerves as they waited.

“Well, alone except for the 12 other version of us, plus our book counterparts.”

That teased a smile to his lips.

“Aye, except for them.” 

Just then they heard a mechanical noise from outside.

The Doctor sighed and reached for her disintegrator gun. “Well, I guess break time’s over then.”

My work for @eorzean-art-exchange V-day art exchange event and you won’t guess who did I get as my partner  (/◕ヮ◕)/

I am really bad with holiday themed ‘inspiration’ but as I always loved the little story you created for how Ilwe got Selene and she is actually his familiar who helped him survive the aether weighted birthplace.

-The skull behind my bed was at a local smoke shop a friend of mine owns.
-The purple sun & moon and the Celtic mermaids I found online. I don’t remember the site but I went to Google (or search engine of your choice) and typed in “wall tapestry.”

Why I love Ben 10

Ben is not, by himself, a good person.

I don’t mean he’s got flaws. I mean he’s selfish, lazy, arrogant, impulsive, annoying, and sometimes, especially in the Original Series, flat out mean. 

If you were to look at the stereotypical Superhero, a person who was the epitome of everything it meant to be a superhero, every symbol, every idealistic, bare-bones principle, the premise before you add in the person behind it, and you asked him or her “Why do you save a group of people from a burning building?” He or she would say “Because I can.”

I’m not saying every hero would say this; they’ve got as many motivations as they’ve got costumes, and not everyone would think of that answer, but if you strip them down to their core, that is what it means to be a superhero.

Because 1) There’s no question of morality to it. It’s cause and effect. There’s no, “it’s the right thing to do and I’m a good person therefore I should…” There’s no “I feel bad for them.” There’s no “I’d feel guilty if I didn’t”. It’s just cause and effect. It happens, so I do it. That’s the “Hero” part.

and, 2) “I can”. Which implies that if you couldn’t. You wouldn’t. And that’s what separates superheros from normal humans. They can. They have the power, the strength, the skill, the ability. That’s the “super” part.

Now, Ben loves superheroes. It’s all he wants to do. All he's ever wanted to do and so, yes, he might know that answer. He might say that just because it’s the ‘right’ answer. It’s the answer a True Hero would give and that’s all Ben’s ever wanted to be.

But if you were to strip him down, get down to his true motivations? Ben would say “Because it’s the right thing to do.”

Because Ben doesn’t have a moral compass that the Earth itself aligns to. Ben’s nice to people because that’s how you make friends, because being mean doesn’t get you places. You’ve seen the way he treats people when he feels like it. We all know he prioritized video games over his girlfriend and sometimes even the adoring crowd over actually helping people. 

Why do you think there are so many Bad Bens out there? That even the good ones (Like Ben 23) aren’t really all that great? 

It’s because deep down, Ben’s not a great person. He wants fame and fortune and everything that comes with being a hero but he’s not innately heroic. He doesn’t win any prizes for being “true of heart” or having “strength of character” because let’s be honest, his character kind of sucks. 

But that’s what’s so great about him. He wants to be a hero. He wants to be the savior of the universe. He wants to do the right thing because he wants to be a good person, even though, no, he’s not really that great.

And that’s so inspiring. Because I never stood up to people bullying other people. I had no problem standing by and watching them get hurt. Did I feel bad about it? Yes. But I’m not an innate hero. Deep down, I’m not genuinely a great person. I’m not as big an asshole as Ben is sometimes, but I lie awake at night thinking about what I’m going to with my life, not about what I’m going to do for others.

Even if I got superpowers I would never risk my life by becoming a crime-fighting vigilante, no matter how much I admire them, how much I wish I was a better person.

But Ben doesn’t let who he is stop him from becoming what he wants. He takes what he has and he works with it. Even now, 6 years after he first got the Omnitrix, he's not a superhero. He’s a plumber, a member of law enforcement, a cop. A superhero is, by definition, a vigilante with a secret identity; they do their work outside the law. Ben doesn’t. 

Even the omnitrix itself wasn’t meant to be 'superpowers.’ It was meant to teach species about each other, but how does Ben use it? To achieve what he wants. 

Ben sees an opportunity to make his life into something he wants it to be and he takes it. He doesn’t let people tell him that he’s not really a superhero, that he should leave the watch alone, that he should let someone else handle it. And maybe it’s stupid, maybe it’s ill-advised, but he pushes what he wants until he gets it, and he doesn’t give up. 

He’s not your ideal person, but he tries to act like one. And he acts out the job he wants, not the job he has. 

He didn’t get his dream job by being born 'special’ or 'unique’ or 'good’ or because he was 'chosen’. 

He got there because he worked for it. 

And if that’s not a better message than 'you’re such a good person and therefore you deserve to be a hero’ I don’t know what is.

Uh, hello there Megane! So, I've recently just found out about you through marks video (sorry if that's a bad thing lol) But anyways, I really like the art style of it and although it does look similar to Konoira's art, I still say you both do great work and you and her shall both stand as great inspirational Artists for me to look up to. (Even though we are all the same age.) Anyways, I hope this gets to you and keep up the good work.

thanks MARK look what u did. 

(imma have a word with him on twitter after this)

ahh.. yes the “your art style is like konoira”

me and her are basically over it, we’re both tired about people keep shoving it to our faces abou us copying one another, but meh now we’re basically chill about it, i apologized of course for starting the “artstyle” war, she’s cool with it. we’ve moved on :)

So, I'm super late to this but about Divide- unpopular opinion, I liked it? Like, yes, I agree that it's not a game changer vis a vis his other stuff but also, sometimes I just like more of the same so Divide suited me just fine? I really like the writing from different perspectives thing he did, I loved the Irish inspired jig things (sorry Ireland) a lot. I had them on repeat before i really explored the rest of the album. Dive was the one that took the longest to get into and it's arguably /1

the most similar to his previous stuff (I could just be stupid, Idk). I like the two singles a lot but also feel they’ve been overplayed so I tend to skip them when they come on tbh. Quick rant about “New Man” that you didn’t ask for. I find the lyrics incredibly patronising “You’re still a young girl trying to be loved So let me give it to you” and “Baby, not trying to ruin your week”- that you think you’re ruining my week?? why would I (the presumed ex), be listening to you?? why do you /2

think your “advice” will benefit me in any way??? I later learned that the song is apparently entirely fictional and just an exercise in coming up with the perfect “fuckboi” song but I still can’t get over it??? don’t meddle with my life bitch. Also, I probably took this WAY too personally, I’m sorry. I have to admit I liked “Perfect” a lot but if I hear him one more time say “how much better a wedding song that TOL was” “wait till you hear P”- I’m going to loose it /3

Ngl, Ed’s attitude with this new album has been off putting. I get that number s are important to you, and that’s just it. They’re important to YOU, if you could sop ramming them our throats every hour of the day, that’d be hella cool. He’s just cocky and sure of himself in a way that’s not attractive. And his stunt of playing the victim because being a ginger in primary school maybe isn’t the heavenly is so old it can no longer work, get over it dude. (His boderline sexist comments in that /4

interview he did about sleeping with Taylor’s friends? Fuck off???) ANYWAY. Didn’t mean for it to get this out of hand. His album is same old but I guess there’s comfort in familiarity, his attitude is -12, and makes everyone uncomfortable). I’m sorry if I talked too much, I hope this helps, idk???? I’m going to sleep, it’ll get me to shut up. /5

I’m the Divide Anon from just now and just to say, for all my shitting on New Man, I did enjoy the Harry memes lol. ANYWAY. If anything isn’t clear or whatever I’d be happy to explain (assuming that helped). ANYWAY, good night!!! I’ll be back on here tomorrow as Harry does some more extra shit *eye emoji* xx

Aw anon you didn’t talk too much! It was very interesting reading all of this and I agreed with a lot as well. Divide feels too schemed, too patronising, and he’s trying too hard. There’s not much of the authenticity of his earlier albums to be found here. He keeps trying to sound innocent, yet is very patronising and even cocky on other moments. The more I think about it all, the less I like it. Which does saddens me because I had such high expectations and I love Ed and really want to like his album but… there’s so much that I dislike about it. And like you said, his attitude about it all has been… Idk. He wants to be this innocent man with no degree and with a simple background etc but at the same time he’s like “look at all these numbers and popularity” etc. There’s nothing wrong with being ambitious but idk
Also I admire him a lot for his songwriting but on this albums some things are just… not well-written? I don’t know how to feel about it all. I wanted to write a positive review but I feel it’s going to be the other way.

Also yes lmao the Harry and New Man memes made me laugh so much!

Thanks for all your asks and good night! 💜💜
