taka-chan’s birthday has ended so today is bts 8th anniversary. i would like to congratulate them for coming this far and never give up. truly one of the biggest inspirations to the youth. ✨ kkaep jjang! ✨
so... i heard about the “two days” festa concert called sowoozoo and it’s the same as last year. i mean, online streaming of course. also read somewhere that fans are able to attend physically but there will be some sort of prohibitions, if i am not mistaken. for some reasons i don’t understand why they make this kind of rule, it’s not like they’re attending the court, ya know? unable to do this and that, like for what reason actually 😂 anyways that’s my opinion, so take it as it is. whatever it is, enjoyment is important no matter the situation so i hope they’re taking a great care of themselves.
once again, happy 8th anniversary to bangtan. may today and tomorrow be filled with joy and happiness for both of them .
—— update ——
for two days straight of sowoozoo, they didn’t do the physical attendance. nice. maybe i didn’t get the updates about this lol but it’s fine now.

Things I am learning
- I am learning to embrace what makes me different
- I am learning to rely on myself and trust myself more
- I am learning the power of creating habits
- I learning to be patient with myself and others
- I am learning to follow through with projects that I've started
- I am learning to be present and grateful for what I have
- I am learning to unlearn ideas and behaviors that aren't inherently mines.
Asé.

Sixth update! Sixth update!!
Tumblr media
“Hey but wasn’t your last update your sixth one?”
You may consider that one the five and a halfth one! To keep things consistent, I was only supposed to update every 50 cranes, but the number 275 was just too pretty to pass on... (´-ω-`) Don’t you also think 275 is pretty? Clean and crisp? Clear and... hm... polished? Feelings that I don’t know how to describe yet.
Anyways! I like the number 275! And also here are 300 cranes, completed on day 103!
Almost a third of the way through, aren’t’cha excited? I know I am ヽ(*・ω・)ノ
Until the next update then~~

so uhhh...
i didn't really dig the whole johnny/v ship thing 'cause it kinda felt weird and selfcest-y and i also though that they had a much better dynamic as a bff duo but... the more i play the the game... the more i realize...
it has begun, mates. i can feel the johnny/v ship slowly dragging me down like a bog. each time he pops out to sass my jaxine and she parries back with a witty remark of her own i find myself with a dumb smile on my face. and every time he's doing his thing with rogue or alt i feel - dare i use this word - jealous?..
fuck... see, this is what happens when a dumb idiot like me gets to experience such well-written characters and a rich dynamic between them! the game has been out for half a fucken year and only now do pieces start to click in my mind like oh! they're not just being nice, they're nice 'cause they're friends! but then i get confused like wait a minute... was that a flirty kind of nice or just a regular kind of nice? it can't possibly be flirty, right?
ugh anyways
i think i'm finnaly becoming a johnny/v ship stan. i gotta sit down and... doodle something cute? or maybe a drabble? because in all honesty they really do fit together so very well! it just took me like ten years to realize.

#dunno if i’ll post this Out Loud but i do wanna say#that i heard about the c/r stuff and having not watched the show since ep 92 or smth#i gotta SAY: something that c/r season 2 suffered TREMENDOUSLY from was the lack of a cohesive main plot line for the majority of the show#it’s smth that vm had and what made them Work because they also had to go through the ‘why are we doing this grand quest’ stuff that i don’t#think that the m9 ever could feel other than sparsely because every action they chose#ASIDE from that because it was an open world and matt didn’t point them in any one particular direction#they hopped from arc to arc without really finding any natural conclusions or good tie ins imo#at times it just felt like..... So What Do We Do Now? and someone went: Hey! look at this note! and they did whatever while the world moved#you know? like i feel as though c/r2 was an excersize in matts amazing open world abilities and he even said i think that he wanted the m9#to chose their own directions which is GREAT! good concept. but as a form of entertainment it just felt so incomprehensible so now at the#end of their journey it feels so unfinished. bc they spent so much time doing nothing or leaving things unfinished when they could’ve spent#it character building or confronting their pasts or whatever and then the campaign loses steam at the end#bc they reached the main plot line 3/4ths of the way through the story.#do you get what i mean?????#might talk abt this more later but anyways! great concept poor execution#flower talks#this is why short campaigns but excellent storylines are still just as good if not better cough cough go watch d20!#miss the vm story gotta say#TLDR; you can’t tell a story that lacks in story!!!!#essentially they were main characters who acted like side characters the whole time#or side characters shoved in the main character plot at the end#that’s why i liked the early eps i think cause it was such an amazing set up for the m9... like they lost a member but they’re ready now to#go forward and heal and put everything molly said into existence and growing as a group while focusing on their Main Quest or whatever#idk i get that it’s non traditional in Form like m9 is just non traditional all around#but there’s only so much that explanation can get you when you’re telling a story as a form of media

I just rewatched the Matrix recently, and of course there’s so much metaphor and symbolism in the movie that each re-watch, it’s fun to overthink everything. I’ve already had a couple of viewings in which I’ve focused on how Neo’s story is a trans narrative and how him ‘being the one’ in many ways is about him discovering himself. It’s a narrative that I think easily stood up before the Wachowskis confirmed it, but obviously is generally easier to spot and analyze with their confirmation.
This time however, I found myself focusing more on Trinity and the romance plot. Let me first just make a disclaimer that this is me reading super into the movie and that I know that in a surface reading, none of this stands up. But if we say... go down the rabbit hole a little of what these themes in the movie could be... well, I obviously feel there's some grounding for it.
In many ways, the romance in this movie is fairly traditional, but in other ways... it's just not. Neo never pursues Trinity in any way. In fact, he generally seems completely oblivious to the possibility that Trinity could be interested in him. Contrast that to Cypher, who feels entitled to Trinity, I think it's worth noting how there's an implication that at some point, he thought he could be The One. He clearly also knew what the Oracle told Trinity about her relationship to the one. And yet while he pines, there's this feeling that he is acutely aware that it's impossible that she would never be interested in him.  
Not only though does Neo seem almost to imagine Trinity could never be interested in him and Cypher has a resentful belief that she would never be interested in him, even Trinity acts arguably strange about the whole thing herself. There's an air to her reaction to the concept of 'The One' and her prophecy that while she wants it to be true and believes so much in Morpheus she will, it seems truly impossible to her. She holds it close to her chest and struggles so much with accepting how she feels, that there just feels like there's more going on under the surface. And with the narrative of knowing that Neo can stand in as a metaphor for a trans woman, I couldn't help but read in this viewing that Trinity is a lesbian. She's a lesbian who was told by the oracle that The One would be the man she falls in love with. The Oracle names things as they are in the moment, telling Neo he's not the one. So it makes sense when she saw Trinity that she would refer to him as he sees himself in that moment. But if being The One is also the story of him coming into realizing trans-ness, then it's no longer so strange that a lesbian would fall in love with The One.
Neo discovering himself as The One is the culmination of many things. The battles to get Morpheus back, to fight the agents, but also even Morpheus saying to Neo after he gets rescued, "There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path" is a reiteration of the Oracle's statement that he has it in him to be The One, but it seemed he was waiting for something. He has to choose to embrace it, to live it, and he starts down that path at least by the time he faces Agent Smith in the subway tunnel, declares his name is Neo.
But if we imagine for a moment that Neo was aware that Trinity was a lesbian (she strikes me as the type who wouldn't hide it) or even assumed as much, it would make sense he might just assume that like gravity keeps one grounded, her romantic disinterest in him was obvious. But the moment she whispers to him that he has to live because she loves him, one might see how validating, how solidifying, that could be. How he could start a new life. 
I think it was the scene where Cypher had her on the phone, revealing his betrayal, that the headcanon solidified. She cares so deeply for these people, and the actor so well manages to convey her despair as her friends begin dying, but she remains so steady and calm on the phone. She has this steel in her and an unwillingness to let Cypher see how much he's breaking her. And he takes a new tact. He taunts her about the prophecy, seeming to mock her for this destined love. It almost seems to say 'do you really even know yourself?' He's questioning her very sense of self because he wants to hurt her for not making herself accessible to him. He wants to punish her for making room for Neo and not him.
(*The spouse pointed out after watching that it struck him in this scene how Cypher is literally on top of Trinity, speaking to her, looking at her, making her his entire focus, whereas to Trinity, Cypher is just a voice on the other end of the phone. To Cypher Trinity takes up so much space, but it's the opposite for Trinity. Just a neat observation. )
In less tangible ways too, there's something about the way Trinity is played and filmed that felt queer coded. That could just be that it was written and directed by queer people though I admit. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
To be fair, I will also admit here that I was happy to look for something that made the romance plot more palatable. To be fair to the movie, I do think it's done in a way that feels fairly organic to the plot, like it's saying something. But on the surface, it can feel pretty par for the course cinematically. So I found it enriching to go looking for a way that the romance would be saying something bigger than what other movies use it for, that further added to the metaphor, and this is how I parsed it for myself to make that work, and I felt like sharing in case anyone else would find it enriching too. Okay mostly to explore these thoughts more fully, but hey, if someone else finds this heightens their enjoyment, then hell yeah.

Zero have the MOST kill count of the Arcane, even more so than the leader themself, the World, but the thing is, ninety percent of them were accidental and that’s what makes him so much more dangerous and terrifying because while a person would be fully and consciously aware of their actions and usually know the consequences of them, Zero himself doesn’t even know anything at all but his intention that is innocent of what he’s doing that can or will influence others that results of them dying. If he was being interrogated about someone who died because of him, he will usually literally have no clue what they’re talking about and gets worked up.
He had killed some people by simply accidentally poisoning them through their food or drinks to a more complex situation like accidentally causing an entire building to collapse because of that one little thing that happened to him, such as tripping himself over a toy, that killed over a hundred of residents. One thing that hits is that almost everyone in the Arcane and some people outside of it DOES make him think and feel like he did kill all of those people on purpose when he never intended to. This doesn’t stop him from being outgoing and wanting to be friends with literally everyone he meets because he’s always craving for relationships to subdue his pure loneliness and knows that most of those he interacts with will die eventually, but in the end, he would come to accept the “ fact “ that he did kill those people and was at massive fault.

Matteo’s breath tickled against David’s ear. It sent sudden chills down his spine, effectively shaking him back into reality right when the train came to a stop. Matteo got up and pulled David with him out of the train back into the chilly morning air. 
They walked towards the apartment building hand in hand and David thought how easy it all felt with Matteo. There was nothing complicated between them. Their hands slotted together as if they always had and the silence that was surrounding them felt like a familiar little bubble where they were happy to simply exist with one another. It felt good.

amsat really doing god’s work introducing children to the culture
if you ever doubt the power of amazing saturday, just remember that a bunch of kids who had never heard of SHINee recognized key as “that guy who guesses lyrics well” and *poof* new shawols were born:
Tumblr media
“oh, you’re key!”
“do I look really different in real life XD”
Tumblr media
“have you ever seen me sing and dance?”
“yes, when you get a right answer [on amsat]...”
“no, not on amsat ☠️”
Tumblr media
*looks at key*
“why’d you glance at me?”
“the person I love the most on amsat is key, and I can’t believe I’m meeting him...”
“all of a sudden?”
“is that why you’re nervous?”
“yes...”
Tumblr media
“wait I know him... from amsat?”
“oh, yes, you’re right!”
Tumblr media
“oh, SHINee’s back?”
“this is the song that keeps getting played on amsat!”
Tumblr media
“oh it’s key!”
*jealous ming* “haeun should have done this with key”
Tumblr media
“how’s the song [good evening]?”
“just... amazing”
Tumblr media
*grooving to don’t call me*
“do you like the song?”
“yes”
“that’s a relief... I’ll send you an album later”
Tumblr media
“how was spending today with me?”
“I think it was the best day”
“who do you like most from SHINee?”
“key!”
“that’s right XD”

It’s 2am and I’m thinking about how so many of the really destiel moments were unscripted, done by misha and Jensen. They really defied the script(Dean and Cas having a brotherly(or even less) relationship) to kill god(the writers and their plans for the relationship between them) and build their own story(of canon destiel(or at least queer Cas)). Am I screaming? Yes. I am screaming.
oh word. and tbh i'm just glad jensen had continued to do his ~instinctual thing while playing dean even when his Mouth would go back and forth when Talking about deancas outside of show. not to be (gunshots) truthing but i think @virginalbehemoth nailed the issue here
