I CAN’T GET MINE TO WORK *ANGUISH*
the problem I had was that I was running java 64-bit and shimeji only works with 32-bit which may be your problem? http://askacavalreaper.tumblr.com/post/34109969869/for-all-those-having-issues-with-the-summeji-try-this
I downloaded that fantastic Grantaire shimeji (and got it working!), and now there’s about ten of them all sitting at the bottom of my screen with blissful little love hearts around them. aaahhhhhhhh <3
Control, or “Do you really think I’m pretty?”
Here is the required post about the Avengers film, that Loki interrogation sequence, and themes of weakness, expectation, and vulnerability. When I say required, I mean everybody else is doing it, but that I will soldier on bravely, just like every other person on the internet in love with their own opinion.
So, Natasha’s most constant recurring themes are themes of control. Comic books are vast and largely un-sum-up-able, but every character has central metaphors that shine through multiple arcs and adaptations, and I think questions of control, questions of agency, are a huge part of her equation. Duane Swierczynski is the current writer on the DC series Birds of Prey, but he also did a run on Black Widow, and this is something he had to say about it:
From the very beginning, she had no say in her own destiny, which is a very noir, very dark kind of outlook on life. And yet, she fought back from that and has now taken her own life in her own hands again. I guess I respond to those kinds of characters. Characters that seem screwed, who are also talented but are put in a difficult position and who fight their way out of it. That’s what appeals to me about her. Despite the convoluted, difficult life, she’s come out on top. And now her mission, the way I see it, is that she wants to free other people from being controlled and used. That’s her thing, I believe, and why she is equally super hero as she is a spy.
Natasha is someone whose specific skillset was forced upon her, something beyond her immediate control, but it’s also the only means she has to take her own life back.
i’ve just downloaded Grantaire shimeji here and this is happening right now on my dashboard.
enjolras has a picture of him and grantaire in his wallet
one day, he pulls out his wallet to buy some coffee
he doesn’t realize courf is behind him in line until he hears a squeal of “IS THAT R IN YOUR WALLET?! OH MY GOD R IS IN YOUR WALLET!”
enjolras gets all flustered, throws five times the amount owed onto the counter and runs out of the shop without his coffee.

The epic Piningjolras Notfic headcanon post thing.
but the problem is that grantaire pines too
so they do that thing where enjolras will stare at him from across the room and r will look up and he’ll look down. and thEN GRANTAIRE WILL STARE AT HIM UNTIL ENJOLRAS GOES BACK TO STARING AT HIM.
and they just do this on repeat and courfeyrac just motions to jehan that he’s going to hurt himself
imagine enjolras and grantaire meeting when theyre really young and grantaire is kind of shy because kids pick on him because he’s ‘ugly’ and enjolras just kind of walks over and says ‘i think you’re pretty’ and grantaire ju s t smiles at him because this beautiful person just told him he was pretty
they lie among the stars
call me mandy. I'm 19, australian, like to draw and wish I could write.
my current OTP died holding hands.
I like lots of things so anything goes but basically if it is really pretty, really tragic or really funny it will probably show up on this blog at some point.
currently i am very very emotional about french revolutionaries
