#I just had to do this one

What are the most common misconceptions about Azul the fandom mostly thought?
Cracks knuckles
They’re not awfully big misconceptions, but I have witnessed these nonetheless.
First off, I have seen people think that Azul was bullied for his chubbiness, especially during the earlier days of Twst. I know I used to think that too 😭 but looking through his flashback, he was really only bullied for being an octopus, not really because of his weight or anything. He probably wanted to remove all traces of his younger self, and that includes the fat he used to have.
The more common misconception I’ve seen is that people tend to overlook that Azul is a hard worker. I remember this one time when my friends were joking that Azul doesn’t have abs because he doesn’t work out, and while I unironically said then that he couldn’t have abs, I also did bring up that Azul does do light muscle exercise every day (stated in his PE lines). None of them took me seriously 🥲 And in that same vein, I have said “there’s no way Azul could have abs in his OB form, they were definitely stolen” all because I never really thought that he can get abs with how weak his stamina is.
I’ve also had people ask me how his voice could still be the same despite all his contracts getting destroyed, implying that they’re thinking that Azul having a ‘beautiful voice’ is because he stole it.
But the thing is, the game makes it clear that Azul works hard to improve on himself the most. It’s so easy for him to just take people’s abilities and use them as an easy way to become the best version of himself. However, if that was the case, then why does he count the calories he eats? Why does he make it a point to exercise every day? Why does he continue to work hard as a mage?
Of course, we do see that he uses the abilities of others for his own gain, like the battle in chapter 3-5 and the scene in chapter 4-31. In chapter 3, Leona and Ruggie described Azul’s unique magic and said that most of the magic he uses belong to others. But Ruggie made it a point to say that “Azul is still a high-class magician”, which means that he still worked hard to be really good at magic instead of simply relying on the stolen magic he possessed. We also see in his flashback that before he got his UM, Azul studied hard.
Now as for the question about whether his abs are legit or not, maybe they’re legit? Idk how swimming for merfolk is like compared to humans, but I wonder if merfolk still need to engage their core to swim properly. If they do, that’s a one-way ticket to getting good abs, especially when you have been swimming for all your life. Literally.
I think that’s really it. 🤔 There was one last thing I had in mind in regards to him being thought of as a crybaby, but at that point, I think that’s just up to anyone’s interpretation and not actually a misconception. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I hope this helps!!

i’ve worked for a big corporation and hated it all but now that i’m working for a small business it’s actually so long like the corner cutting and being overworked and when you question things it’s like oh well we’re a small social enterprise! why would our retail staff get a 6 hour shift so they’re legally entitled to a break ha no they’re gonna work 5hrs 45mins and bank holidays come out of your holiday allowance babe isn’t that cool and yeah you’re not gonna have a line manager you’re gonna report directly to me! the ceo! and i’m gonna set unrealistic deadlines and stay on zoom with you all day to breathe down your neck and ask you and your team to send me a daily email of all the tasks you’ve done today but this is a small business! we’re doing good! social enterprise!

Okay, so. Here’s the thing. I hit two milestones in the past... some measurement of time and that’s big to me, so I want to celebrate it.
I know this isn’t important, and I’m very likely to be the only one that cares, but I do care so you’re going to have to hear about it.
The first is that I hit 100 followers on this blog. Which is insane because I don’t do anything. But I’m seriously grateful for all the support I’ve received on here and all the friends I’ve made and all the wonderful things I’ve been able to experience.
It’s also kinda wild cuz this blog specifically has only been around since... May? I think that’s when I split off? But regardless, over 100 people are interested in this blog, and subsequently interested in me. That’s fucking wild man
And, the one that’s throwing my head for a loop the most, is that, on 2 August, I had officially been writing for one year. I went from a very bad villa fic that is no longer available because it’s that bad, to 217.898 words on Ao3, excluding the thousands I still need to transfer over from tumblr. That’s fucking wild.
I went from having no idea what I was doing in one fandom, to having no idea what I’m doing in half a dozen fandoms, and with two IFs. @sinkorswimvn & @whenthestarsalign-if ima plug. That’s fucking wild.
I went from knowing no one, and feeling out of place on the subreddit, to friends and mutuals and so many people I adore with my whole heart. In the span of a year. That’s fucking wild.
This past year, half a year, month, week, day, hour - everything - has legitimately been so brilliant, and so much better than I thought it could’ve been. And I genuinely owe so much of it to having a place to go to be dumb and make bad jokes, and somewhere to try and care without fear, and somewhere to laugh and have fun with some amazing people.
Thank you to everyone that’s lent a little light into my life this past year, whether you see this or not. Thank you to everyone for being kind and supportive and funny and cool and amazing. Thank you to everyone for being welcoming and laughing with me, even when I’m sending you cursed frogs in your inbox. Thank you to everyone for simply being here with me, it means more than I could ever possibly say.
Genuinely, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

CW// mention of suicide
It's the middle of the night and I can't sleep. Just thinking about how crazy it would be if it turned out Mikuni was never the one to kill his Mother, and neither Jeje, and she did it herself... And I have absolutely NO backup for this, it's just a crazy thought I want to share with ya.
Tumblr media
To begin with how did Mikuni even overpower this bitch. Like she has a FREAKING KNIFE WITH HER AND A TALL ASS VAMPIRE- and on top of it she was ready to murder an eight years old child. Let's say Jeje didn't step in like we mostly think.
Tumblr media
I think when she saw how her own son technically chose Misono over her and how he risked his life to protect him, made her feel terrible. Thinking about how her husband didn't love her and started thinking even her own child didn't too. She doubted Mikuni would ever look at her the same way after seeing her in this cruel and mad state she was in. She hated herself for it. She hated how she let jealousy control her and she hated how much of a bad mother she now was. she couldn't bear the jealousy, anger and betrayal she felt. So um, after blahblahblah whatever more happened between them she couldn't take it anymore and ended herself, she just couldn't bear it anymore, it drove her insane. Perhaps she wanted to free herself from the jealousy that took over her and maybe pay for her sin. Now this cought both Mikuni and Jeje off guard, and imagine how terrified Mikuni must have been when she did that right in front of his eyes.
Hmm, so why was Mikuni holding the knife if it wasn't him who killed her? (I know I should probably shut up about suicide now but bear with me) well after seeing such a thing, shit must have been going through his mind, too much for him to handle, he still couldn't process what he just saw, and he probably blamed himself. His actions drove her to do this. If he hadn't let his feelings out, maybe if he hadn't told her how miserable he felt because she and Mikado where the most awful parents. She wouldn't have done it (Now I know Mikuni is calm and collected in the most shittiest situations when he shouldn't be and of course would be very careful with his words in a situation like that, because he knows that doing anything recklessly would make everything go wrong, but maybe at that time, on that night, he wasn't able to do it properly while facing his own mother that was overcome and blinded by jealousy.)
So anyways back to where we were. He maybe intended to do it too, end his life. And I'm not saying Mikuni is suicidal or really wanted to die, but maybe felt like he should die at that moment, he felt like he just killed his mother and should pay for it, he was scared he would be the reason someone else he loves would do that too. So he grabbed the knife from her hand while shaking terribly, BUT Jeje stopped him.
Instead offered to run away, To leave this messed up mansion. There was no way for Mikuni to stay here anyway, not after Misono had just walked in on them, yikes. Of course he would get the wrong idea, and there is no point or way of explanation what just happened to a little kid. Mikuni didn't want to either. He was fine with the idea his whole family got, it didn't matter anyways because he still saw himself as his mother's killer although he didn't do it with his own two hands. He was scared, and really did want to leave, run far far away. So he did, with Jeje by his side.
Tumblr media
This is also part of why I think my fair lady looks like his mother and why it's the way it is. Such as the rope, punishment for the sinners etc. And how ropes can usually represent something like suicide since people- um, do it that way. I know there are many explanations on what happened between Mikuni and his mother that night that makes much more sense than this lmao also on his lead that are very accurate,So um, if you read this until the very end. You amaze me.

life update! (I hope you're doing well friend I know your health isn't the best) school starts soon! it's my last year and I'm very nervous ghjihkhg. I'm getting back into cosplaying and it's exciting :D
Tumblr media
Shelby for your time :3
That's so exciting friend!! definitely it's scary to be going into ur last year bc there's no getting around the Great Unknown-ness of life beyond high school, but as someone on the other side of the Great Unknown i am SO excited for you. i hope ur last year is absolutely spectacular, but i'm also so glad ur almost past the threshold into freedom! life gets so much better from graduation on, friend, congratulations on surviving high school so far and may this year bring some happy memories for you to carry into the unknown, still happier future <3
#also ye i have been like. completely absent for the past week or so apologies for that#i got 0.2 spoons per day and my emotions are not up to social media lately#thank you for the cat i love her so much#and thank you for the update!! truly i am so excited for u friend#high school is a wild time but i think (bearing in mind that i don't rly remember all that much of high school) ur last year is a good one#as a general rule#ur teachers tend to be more chummy esp towards the end bc ur almost gone and a lot of them'll miss u#and well. if u have teachers like i had in elementary school who get off on scaring kids and who try to tell u like#''the real world is much crueller u aren't prepared high school is sheltered compared to'' whatever#again. i've said it before but. they are absolutely a boatload of liars#if u go to college ur teachers will treat u like human beings! and u'll get to take classes that interest you!!#and maybe move out and get a tiny little space of your own - a place that's yours; that's safe#god i can't tell you how much freedom you'll have; how much more support is offered you with that freedom than u might think#it's good. i promise. if u go straight into the workforce guess what?#the worst part is doing interviews which is basically the same level of bleh as standardized testing and it happens much less often#u take like 20 tests & quizzes in each class? u do maybe 5 or 10 interviews before someone hires u and u get to test them while ur there#and then u have a job and not homework and suddenly the stress of working is limited to 8 hours a day and your evenings are your own#and you can maybe move out and get a whole cramped little apartment of your own and go grocery shopping and exist#just. exist. your own person; your own freedom and safety and it's scary but it's yours#god. it gets so much better from here. i'm so happy you're almost there. you deserve the world friend#you really really do#ask linden

Thank you for your tags. It always rubbed me wrong when other stan complained "JaSon sTaN aRe alWays cHoosE and pIcK tHe CaNoN tHuS tHeY'rE tHe WoRst" like 1. as if other stans doesn't do that 2. Look at the way Jason is written by canon. He's the most inconsistent character.
While i don't like how fanon wrote Jason most of the time, can we really blame them? because i belive every Jason's version is canon at this point, i can't even count.
hey thanks for sending this!! i always feel kind of embarrassed after posting one of my tag rants so i'm glad you liked it!
and yeah, comics in general are so inconsistent w/ each new writer just changing whole events and characterizations around that i don't fault anyone for picking and choosing things they like vs dislike. imo that's like... the only way to actually enjoy comics, especially with characters who have years and years of baggage and inconsistent writing. personally i think the original under the hood/lost days jason is the most interesting characterization (and i don't think either story is like 100% perfect or that winnick is the perfect jason writer, just that at least it's an INTERESTING story that sets up an interesting character), and it just sucks how little that's actually carried through with other writers. jason has so much potential to be such a great character and late post-crisis storylines like battle for the cowl or morrison's batman & robin just kind of ruined that by making him a boring one-dimensional villain as a lazy contrast to the "good" robins. like i said in the other post i'm not really opposed to jason being a villain/antagonist, but at least make him a GOOD villain, you know?
i'm hoping we get some better jason stories going forward to shake off some of that (and his new 52 characterization which i'm also not crazy about but that's a whole different rant), but i feel like a) no one at dc really knows what to do with jason as a character rn so they just keep throwing him into different storylines and seeing what sticks and b) his current characterization is pretty entrenched and isn't going anywhere. which is really disappointing.
but yeah definitely fans of Every Comics Character Ever pick and choose their interpretations. ppl who liked original jason are pissed that he was downgraded into Generic Murdering Bad Guy Who Shoots Kids For Attention so other characters could monologue about how he's ""too far gone to be saved"". sue us i guess

“This queer cartoon paved the way for-” Kipo had a little black boy say he was gay AND fall for a boy in season one, and let him flirt/hold hands with/kiss/get with the boy in the following seasons, where’s your essay on that?

I'm so frustrated with news media culture
Tumblr media
This CBS article showed up in my newsfeed. I normally don't click on articles like these, but I read the headlines. My instinctive response to this headline was "what a tepid, noncommittal response from an uncaring administration." Mainly because that's the mental framework that media & social media has taught me to use.
Then I clicked the article:
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
What Biden actually said was that these laws are an atrocity (they are). He literally called them "Jim Crow in the 21st Century" (completely true). He made a sweeping condemnation, taking a far stronger stance than the headline implied--stronger than the media has taught me to expect. A much more accurate headline would have been "Biden condemns Georgia election laws" or "Biden calls Georgia election laws an "atrocity"".
As a progressive, I have enough complaints about the Biden administration without media companies purposely trying to mislead me with this shit. Keep in mind the vast majority of people who read the headline will not click on the article. That is just how headlines work. And this is just one of dozens of small but incredibly harmful journalistic practices. Too many U.S. media companies consistently twist words & highlight the wrong information in order to drive wedges between liberal voting blocs while unifying the far right and I am sick of it.
Always read critically, and hold your news sources accountable.
#reminder of the extreme importance of supporting independent news sources#especially nonprofits like Mother Jones#but always always always examine word choices and tone#it's become second nature to me to rewrite and rephrase news articles as I'm reading them#i go into mental 'editing' mode.#just rephrasing sentences a different way as an experiment can do a LOT to quickly uncover invisible bias#for every phrase there are two synonyms that could have been used instead. and the writer made the choice they did for a REASON#anyways. TONE POLICE MEDIA COMPANIES NOT MINORITIES#serious post#not a shitpost#no I'm not a fan of the Biden administration#but falling for shit like this is ultimately why we got that orange fucker instead of clinton#Christ think about how much better the last year alone would have been if we'd had Clinton#again not a clinton fan but we would have had a functional center for disease control for one thing#would have had a center for disease control in the midst of a global pandemic#remember the CDC? the thing Trump got rid of along with 100 other essential government services#well putting children in cages is expensive I guess. Walls don't pay for themselves#anyway. vote as a form of harm reduction#yes the system should probably be torn down and built from fucking scratch#but until you figure out a way to do that will you please just fucking vote to reduce harm#wow. this was such a small thing but apparently I was set to go off I guess#I am possibly just beginning to process the last 4 years of social trauma.

this needs more detail but Pratchett’s strength as an author wasn’t that he was revolutionary. Everything he wrote had been invented before and circulated through academia and discussed and dissected. Raw genius is only a small part of what makes a work of fiction good. The other pillar on which every book stands is how it communicates. You can read the same sentiment or have the same thought over and over again and not truly understand it, because it was never put in a way that you can relate to or feel intrinsically. Terry Pratchett’s main talent was putting old, worn ideas into words that really Connect
