A quick notice on like & reblog buttons!
Many of you have requested/asked if I could integrate those buttons into my themes, and although my answer has been “no” up until now, I’ve decided to stop being lazy and try to integrate them into most of my themes starting from today! My newest theme  Lachesis was a start (my first theme that I included the buttons); I’m still learning though, so bear with me! I just don’t want to mess anything up (-_-) zzz
The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous startups in Silicon Valley, I will spare the whole place for their sake.” Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five startups?” // “If I find forty-five there,” God said, “I will not destroy it.”
… The two venture capitalists arrived at Palo Alto in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. … They did go with him and entered his $0.9m one-bedroom home. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without gluten, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of Silicon Valley—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can pitch our startups to them.”
in the halloween special.. whenever max interacted with any of the other campers, he wasn’t full of malice as you’d expect. sure, he was still his little shithead self, manipulative as can be, but he still showed some signs of lessening hatred towards the other kids.
before even a full minute passes in the episode, when he asks why they’re listening to the science speech? instead of insulting he it literally just asks why they’re doing it. pre-season 2 you’d expect him to call it stupid or something.
later on in spooky island when nikki points out the “doors on the ground”? instead of calling her a dumbass he just corrects her and they go right on in
when enid gives him the map. he admits it’s helpful with literally no visible inwards struggle.
and he actually says space kid did a good job breaking the window. even if it seems sarcastic, it’s still a good sign.
seemed less quick to insulting the othersas they went on their medicine hunt.. the only times he’s outwardly malicious is when he’s at risk of getting infected, which is a pretty valid response.
i could be misremembering how he was in earlier seasons, but…
really seems like he’s softened up a little since the S2 finale, even if we’re only seeing it in this episode so far.
I feel like I already have a post like that. Well I’ll have two then. But you know what’s really sad? Ignis is a function character. It’s not me shitting on the story, there are actual real life people who live like that, molding all their lives around someone else. Typical thing for mothers, maybe that’s one of the reasons why fandom thinks about him as a mom-friend despite the fact that he is adventurous pun master dork. But really all his life since the early childhood was dedicated sorely to Noctis. There are Gladio and Luna who are quite literally live for Noctis to fulfill his role but still, Luna has her oracle shebang, Gladio expresses characteristics that has nothing to do to Noctis: he loves his sister, likes reading, hiking, getting stronger, even those cup noodles.
Every habit or quality Ignis exhibits is there for Noctis. He may enjoy cooking but he got into it to lift the prince’s spirits after the Tenebrae attack. His knowledge, his manners, his skills at fight all were developed to guide a young king to his fullest potential. And not once he shows even a trace of resentment toward Noct, even having every right, even after this quest leaves him fucking blind. The depth of his devotion and selflessness is truly mind-boggling.
And the saddest part? It’s all for nothing. He dedicated every second of his life to make Noctis a perfect ruler he never meant to be.
King Regis never pressed his son to be a great leader because he won’t be, it was good enough if he lived happily for those short years he had. But Ignis didn’t get the memo so he kept on trying.
I mean even the fact that each bro gets an episode to dive into their character, lives and motivations exclude Ignis. Because “his” episode is still emotionally Noct’s story of coming to terms with his father’s mortality and his own role as an heir.
