Name's Fate! Reblogging things I'm obsessed about~ Mainly BenC, the many Anime/Manga's I love and whatever funny posts that are on my dash~
What Are You Looking At?
  • 12-year-old girl:I don't want kids when I grow up.
  • Society:You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.
  • 16-year-old girl:I'm pregnant.
  • Society:How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.
  • 20-year-old woman:I'm a single mother with an infant son.
  • Society:You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.
  • 33-year-old woman:I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.
  • Society:You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.
  • 45-year-old woman:I just had my first child.
  • Society:Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.
  • 60-year-old woman:I haven't had any children.
  • Society:Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.
  • other people:having a life
  • me:crying over personified countries

why test on animals when there are prisons full of rapists

because the prisons aren’t actually full of rapists

the rapists run free and the prisons are full of people charged with weed possession

❝ I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker. ❞

Matt (aka Mail Jeevas) appeared in just fourteen pages of the Death Note manga and only two scenes of the anime based upon it. His cameo characterisation was deemed relatively minor by author Tsugumi Ohba and artist Takeshi Obata. However, Matt is arguably one of the most popular characters in the whole franchise, often eclipsing Kira, L and the other main players.

Death Note: Is Matt Really so Popular?
Nearly 6.5 million websites reference Matt, according to Google statistics. Furthermore, their keyword tool suggests that ‘Matt Death Note’ is searched 12,000 times a month; while ‘Matt Deathnote’ garners a mere 9,000. His staggering popularity has been parodied many times by incredulous observers.
In 2008, Tom Smith created a song about the phenomenon, entitled Who the **** is Matt? It notes the volume of ‘rabid fangirl hordes’, while remaining non-plussed at the reason why. It ends with a wry musing on the reaction had Matt continued within the Death Note storyline. Two years earlier, the artist Slinkers made similar observations in her comic strip, Three Scene Fame. A spoof meet and greet between Death Notecharacters and fans results in every main person being ignored, while Matt is mobbed.
Death Note's Creators Ohba and Obata on Matt
The manga’s companion tome, How To Read, reveals the thoughts of its creators on the subject of Matt. Gensaku-sha (writer), Tsugami Ohba, viewed him as little more than a narrative device. “Once Mello started acting on his own, it was going to be hard to advance the story unless he had someone to talk to. So that’s why I created Matt.”
The mangaka (artist), Takeshi Obata, recalled, “I was told nothing about Matt ahead of time; I remember seeing the thumbnails and asking my editor, “Who’s this character?!”” He added, “During the Mello and Near arc I had a ‘he probably won’t do anything’ mentality regarding new characters, so I was able to create Matt naturally.”
In short, though Ohba acknowledged that Matt’s function was ‘important’, it was only to facilitate the storylines around Mello. Little real character development was afforded what amounted to a cameo role.

I made transparent falling hetalia chibis for your blog (´∀`人)

I love this gif and how each character falls like
Hungary lands on her feet, then kinda bounces into place
Spain sits that shit down
Austria lands on his fucking face and doesn’t give two shits
Holy Rome Magic Girl’s that fucker and then he sits
France, fabulous as ever, twirls in mid-air and lands the right way
The dog thing kinda comets down to his spot
and then a fucking rabbit rolls in like a boss-ass bitch
