Quick translation for Xia of the bits that pertain to Kurogane.

For the record, it’s really incredible that Kurogane placed third, considering he just returned in a published work. I’m also amused that he was described as a mature adult man for the women who voted; while the others (yes, including Levi) are boyish.

yknow, i’ve seen a lot of posts analyzing haru’s nightmare and rin and haru’s fight from last episode, but im honestly shocked at the lack of attention this scene has. 

we’ve been seeing all season that makoto is struggling with what he wants to do when he gets out of high school. he probably never thought he’d be able to make it to the big leagues because his talent wasn’t up there with haru and rin’s. he’s jealous of rin because he could never ignite that spark in haru that rin can when they swim. haru is constantly being targeted by scouts. makoto probably feels like he’s being left behind. 

but right here. this is the first time makoto is being told that his talent is worth something. even if he has decided on what he wants to do after graduation (i.e., studying in tokyo, working at the iwatobi swim club, etc.), this is the only time makoto has heard he has the potential to keep swimming. and it’s not from his best friend or his teammates or his teachers - it’s from rin.

obviously rin’s goal is to swim professionally and make it to the olympics. but up to this point makoto had assumed he was only interested in whether or not haru was taking his future into consideration. rin is also worried about makoto. not many people remember that makoto and rin are very close friends because they don’t have the same bond with each other that they both have with haru. but all season rin has been worrying about them both and rin wants them both to consider swimming professionally, not just for their future’s sake, but so he can continue swimming with his friends. 

Emphasis added. At the cherry blossom pool, Rin did ask both Haru and Makoto what their plans were for the future, after all.

inspired by (x)

When you’ve been abused by a parent like that dealing with anything afterwords is terrifying.

I can only imagine the emotions Zuko was feeling when he apologised to Iroh there. 

^This is one of the reasons that I think going in to apologize to Iroh is one of the bravest things that Zuko’s ever done, because of how much it must have terrified him to do so (Iroh would never hurt Zuko like that, but that fear had to have been at the top of Zuko’s mind at this moment)

And why I love Iroh so, so much for being who he is. 

I will always think of this when I watch that scene now.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

So, you may have noticed that I added a donate button to my blog. The reason is we’re using up all our funds transitioning into our new home, between down payments, security deposits, switching on all our utilities money is going to be extremely tight. We unfortunately even have to give our cats up for adoption because we can’t afford their monthly pet fee. Today Ryssa’s car broke down. I will be starting my new job on Friday but it’ll be hard to make our first month’s bills as I get paid biweekly and am coming in at a weird time. 

Now, this does not mean you have to donate to me. Making ends meet is hard for everyone. But if you did want to help out I would be extremely grateful. If you would like some sort of art or fic in exchange for money I could do that too. I feel like you wouldn’t be getting your money’s worth, it wouldn’t be very good, but I’d try. 

Thank you for your consideration, friends.
