They get so hot that the nuclei of the atoms fuse together deep within them to make the oxygen we breathe. The carbon in our muscles, the calcium in our bones, the iron in our blood, all was cooked in the fiery hearts of long-vanished stars.
Anonymous asked: That head ripping just gave me flashbacks to Stefan ripperdom. Like is this the shows way of trying to make that ripper storyline fine? And a reason for Stefan to get a free pass for his blood addiction and his turning innocents into jigsaw puzzles? I'm kinda wondering now if they're gonna make it so that Stefan just got injected with that shit too. Only it was the beta version?
I would not be at all surprised, anon. It will probably turn out that Stefan was an Augustine vampire too but for FIFTY years not five and that’s why he eats heads off but also when he escaped he didn’t so much kill anyone as send them all fruit baskets and handwritten notes saying he forgives them.
Oh woe! Stefan! Woe!
It’s true though. We shall all mourn his loss of innocence.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I was willing to forgive you for a lot of things. I’ve forgiven you for your character training karate (no mention of the variant) and aikido at the same time. I can almost believe it, though the fact that neither of these really seem to affect the character’s personality is questionable.
But the one off line when introducing her buying the deer horn knives or crescent moon blades, which are a Chinese weapon that feature in Buaguazhang (the style used by the Airbenders in Avatar) and talking about how she “trained with her sensei in China” that…
That made me blow a gasket. Sensei is a Japanese word. It is a Japanese word. The one you’re looking for is sifu. Sifu. If your character had supposedly trained anywhere else other than China, I might have forgiven you because it’s difficult to consistently explain a not so popular martial art to other people that you just start cheating after a while. But in China, that word would have been instilled into her head. Sifu. Sifu. Correct pronunciation applicable.
This one small thing tells me that you did almost no research on any of the styles you picked. There are many weapons that would have been more applicable for your character to roll with, she has a background in Japanese/Okinawan martial arts, let her use a weapon that she might have trained on in those classes. This tells me that there’s only one reason you picked the weapon you did: because they look cool and the wiki description makes it sound applicable (except it’s not because she doesn’t have the supporting training in the appropriate martial arts to make the weapon viable nor does she reflect at all on the style her future angel boyfriend is using and whether or not it’s going to work. There is a huge difference between sword styles via different continents. A weapons developed to deal with the sword and spear techniques of various Chinese martial arts may not be a good option to bring to a fencing duel whether that’s Italian or German school is your choice. Let’s ignore for now that the boy is bringing a weapon from a different dimension to the party, we don’t know if the materials match up the same way). There is no such thing as a one size fits all weapon.
This is so lazy. So lazy. I hate you. Raghalkjfdklajfs.
TV TROPES: She Is Not My Girlfriend
BUT THAT LAST ONE
A post has been traveling around Tumblr where Big Barda is mistaken for Wonder Woman. I thought I’d take the opportunity to help correct that mistake, and introduce the baddest bitch from Apokolips.
Taken from her mother at a young age, Barda was trained by Granny Goodness to serve the evil lord Darkseid. She becomes leader of the Female Fury Battalion, a ferocious pack of women warriors. During a raid, she meets Scott Free, and discovers the problematic nature of her upbringing. Turning her back on the abusive Darkseid and Granny, she joins a rebel cell and risks her life to enable Scott’s escape to Earth. After some time the two are reunited, decide to get hitched, and become a kick-ass crime fighting couple. After a few years of working, they retire to New Hampshire and attempt to live a normal life. When this plan fails terribly, they move to Greenwich Village, NY where Barda forms a defense-training program for women called the New Female Furies. The two still occasionally help out with JL missions.
Barda is a proud homekeeper and wife. One of the deadliest hand-to-hand combatants alive, she has fought Wonder Woman to a draw. Energy bolts from her megarod are strong enough to concuss Superman, and her heart is such that she never turns down a friend in need. 7 feet tall, fast as a whip, and she loves Pokemon Cards. Does it really get better than that?
My love for Big Barda/Scott Free knows no bounds.
BARDA!!!!!! I love her so much
COULD THIS BE ANY MORE ACCURATE
THIS IS THE MOST WONDERFULLY ACCURATE THING I’VE EVER LAID MY EYES ON
This is the most accurate thing I have ever seen.

- Anonymous asked:Wait..why did you think the sire bond was fake? (I haven't followed you for long so I never heard you say that before) I would have loved if it was fake but I thought they kinda proved it with having Damon tell Elena to do something and her doing it even if she didn't want to. Maybe I missed something?
Well, for a detailed (and I mean detailed) discussion of why I think the sire bond could and should have been fake you can check out my recaps at...
