“Henry is always a catalyst for other characters’ development and story (Regina and Emma). I really want a story actually about Henry. Maybe he learns magic, maybe he investigates something without Emma, maybe he is the one who reaches out to Elsa, or whatever it may be. Henry has never been shoved to the side of a story more than in 3B. Give me Henry centered story!”

number 9 tho

number fucking 9. there was a dude that would play his guitar outside of my window at 1 am all the time

Some bits that I’ve picked up:
There’s a general rule of college that if you were sitting in that seat for over two weeks, that is your seat. Not many if any professors have seating arrangements but switching seats will fuck everyone up.
Get there early and stay late. As soon as you get home you will not want to do shit. Stay on campus and do some homework while you’re in the environment.
SIT UP FRONT. The best way to start understanding something is to listen to someone talk about it and you can’t do that from the back of the class trying to listen over everyone whispering to each other. LISTENING WILL MAKE HOMEWORK SO MUCH EASIER. 
Be childish, but be respectful. Have a massive snowball fight across campus, but don’t aim for anyone not taking part. 
SHUT THE FUCK UP IN THE LIBRARY. Some people work there, some people sleep there. It is a quiet space. 
Don’t be afraid to talk to professors. They are not there to flunk you. They would rather you pass than not.
IF YOU NEED TUTORING GET TUTORING DON’T WAIT UNTIL YOU’VE DUG YOURSELF INTO YOUR GRAVE.
Get involved. It will help you make friends, give you new skills to learn, and even help you get a leg up in the work place if you know the right people.

I will add to this as a GTA:
   Take time for yourself—buy a planner, figure out when your best study hours are, figure out WHERE you study best, and figure out how much time you need to complete an assignment—AND THEN make sure to pencil in an hour for video games, some time to watch a TV show, or time to just lay on your floor and blow bubbles. Whatever you like. Don’t forget about YOU.
  SLEEP. EAT. DRINK WATER. Don’t die. Caffeine =/= sleep. I cannot emphasize that this much. 
    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY:
  COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR INSTRUCTORS! If you’re sick, shoot an e-mail and say “Hey, I’m sick today. Can I set up a time to talk to you about what I missed?” If you’ve got a good opportunity (scholarships, to go to another country, to check out a cool lecture, etc.) let your prof know ahead of time. If you just need time to work on projects, all it takes is an e-mail. We understand. I gave a student a free skip day because he e-mailed me and said “Hey, look, I have two massive tests and a project due and I need the time to study.” And THAT IS OKAY.
   However, sometimes you just need a personal day, and you know what, when you wake up and getting out of bed seems like the worst idea ever….just turn off your alarm and get that sleep.

Some additionally tid-bits that might help you 
Before signing up for classes, look on “ratemyprofessor.com" and see if the teachers at your campus are included. There may be two or more teachers for the same course, and you want to try and pick the good/easy one. Who your professor is can have a great affect on what grade you make, even for the "same" class. 
Look for a facebook group for your "graduating class" set up, which is a good way to make friends and find people with similar interests (particularly for introverts). 
Look for a facebook group for each of your courses. If there isn’t one, MAKE ONE and send it out via the course email or word of mouth. These groups are helpful for if you missed class and need the notes, and especially for review time before exams. 
If no one else does it, make a google doc of the exam reviews and post it on the class facebook page. That way everyone contributes to the review. 200 brains are most definitely better than 1. 
During lectures, unless Internet is required, TURN IT OFF. If it’s on, you WILL end up on tumblr or some other site, and you will miss important shit. 
For the love of God, pay attention to your syllabus. Sometimes assignments are listed there, and that’s the only place it’ll be mentioned. Also, if it says to do a reading by a specific date, DO THE READING BY THAT DATE. Otherwise you will get behind, and you will have 200+ pages of textbooks to read in one night before the test, and you will cry.
Yes you actually need to do the readings. Yes it is a lot. Yes it will suck. Do it anyways. 
If you are used to getting all A’s, do not cry when you get a B. Take it from someone who killed herself for two years to maintain a 4.0, it feels like the end of the world when your GPA drops, but it’s not. You’ll be okay. Just breathe and do your best. Your best is good enough.

Addons—
Try to make sure you leave an open hour around midday so that you have time to get food in you. A lot of people forget to do this. If you have to have back to back classes, check your syllabus or with your teacher—some midday classes allow you to bring in a drink and a snack. Some will even allow you a full meal.
If you can get an online/pdf copy of the book without busting the bank, DO IT. Sometimes there are even annotated versions online. This can make notetaking a shitton easier, because you can highlight printed-out versions of the book and they won’t dock you on the money back. Sometimes professors move through their lecture too fast for you to write stuff down. Shrugging off that old ‘don’t ruin your books’ rule you had in high school may be your only hope.
UNLESS YOU NEED THEM OR REALLY WANT TO KEEP THEM TRY TO SELL BACK YOUR BOOKS—maybe even offer them online to incoming students. You won’t get nearly the worth of them but someone after you will thank you a million times over for providing a used copy. If you take good notes, you can sometimes buy/sell those as well. A lot of professors teach literally the same class every time.
IF YOUR PROFESSOR PUTS NOTES ONLINE GET THEM. GET THEM NOW. TRUST ME. YOU WANT THOSE NOTES. Bring them in with you if it’s possible to get them before class.
Keep change on hand. Always.
The Best Way To Make Friends:
Bring a printer with you to college and offer to print people’s stuff for half of what the school does or for free if you can afford it.
Carry around small candies with you and offer them to people while waiting outside of class. If you are the ‘candy person’ this gives you an in for starting conversations.
Buy a jumbo pack of chalk and find an open sidewalk on a free day. Write the words ‘Come draw with me?’ and begin doodling.
Have a pack of cards.
Last But Not Least: if you go onto campus and you can’t find what you’re looking for, and you are afraid to go up to someone and ask, find an open, well-populated area, hold your schedule/map in hand, and walk in circles for a few minutes, looking up and around in obvious confusion. Other students know this body language well. Someone will stop and point you in the right direction. (if you are worried that the person’s directions are a joke or faulty, wait for them to leave and take up the stance again; if the directions match-up the second time, they’re legit; do not allow a person to ‘show you the way’ unless EVERY STEP is along an obvious walkway, just in case)
For those of you who fear assault, most campuses aren’t much for small blades or mace. Carry a pocket air horn or a hand bag of those little pop-rock fireworks unless you can get a concealed weapons permit.

Regina/Rumple get lots of screentime because they're either serving as the big bads (S1) or they made other baddies relevant (S2/S3: Cora-Regina, Hook-Rumple, Pan-Rumple, Zelena-Regina, and now S4: Elsa vs. Rumple). They have their hands in everybody's business, from our heroes to random side characters, so they pop up all over. Hook though, he no longer has any kind of relevance independent of Emma.

justkillianthings:

It’s really funny when they try so hard to make him relevant to the plot. They killed off Neal, someone who has ties to all these other characters, but kept the most useless and disposable character who is only tied to Emma now.

Anonymous asked:

I think after all the shit she's done, Regina deserved Marian's return. And Regina's still not getting what's coming to her. Even so, everyone on the show good & bad has had to work for their happiness. Regina hasn't. She's been coddled enough. It's about time she put on her big girl panties, though that remains to be seen. Another thing, do the writers just have a crush on Lana/Regina & that's why Regina gets her little drama show without any repercussions? It certainly seems like favoritism.

anti-regina-mills:

Yeah this is the first time karma has actually bit her in the ass. Shame it won’t last. Marian doesn’t deserve to die and Robin and Roland don’t deserve to lose her all over again. Obviously I’m making assumptions there but I don’t see any other way out of it. The coddling is beyond old. I don’t know about a crush but I do think that they’ve made their favorites, Regina being one of them, glaringly obvious. There’s nothing wrong with having favorite characters and not even a problem with it showing, per say, but when the favoritism comes at the expense of other characters it is a problem. I’m tired of Emma, Henry, Snow, and now classic characters like Robin and Marian being sacrificed at the altar of Regina.

I'm just so done with people who think they get to define what rape is, and so done with people who keep insisting CS isn't rape culture because Hook didn't rape Emma.

onceandfuturekiki:

Same. The “true rapist” thing yesterday just infuriated me. I can’t believe that person thought that they got to be the one to decide who is or isn’t a “true” rapist. You don’t get to just twist definitions like that. If you commit rape, you’re a rapist. It doesn’t matter whether you rape one person or 40 people. Someone who rapes one person is just as much a rapist as some who rapes 10 people. This isn’t the sort of thing where “well, to me it means…” No. Rape is rape. Period. The fact that Regina “only” raped Graham doesn’t make her less of a rapist. Raping “only” one person doesn’t just make it forgivable.

And yeah, I’m so done with people who refuse to understand what rape culture actually is. Rape culture and rape or not the same thing, and it’s reached the point where it’s got to be willful ignorance in most cases. CS is rape culture. It’s a relationship where ‘no’ only means ‘no’ if the man decides it does, that ‘no’ only means ‘no’ until until it’s a ‘yes’. It’s a relationship where rewards are expected for the man for good behavior, where a woman has to work through her issues on the man’s terms because of what he wants, where a woman is treated as a prize to be fought over and won, that a woman is responsible for a man’s good behavior. 

The fact of the matter is that it perpetuates the idea that women lie about what they want, that ‘no’ doesn’t mean ‘no’, that men deserve rewards for being decent people, and that a man’s wants are the primary.

Yet you get excusing away with “but she really wanted it” (where have we heard that before?), “he was tearing her walls down” (so it’s up to Hook rather than Emma when and how she deals with her issues).

And that’s not even the tip of the seriously unhealthy behavior from Hook that is twisted canon and victim blaming. “Belle should expect it if she’s going to be with Rumple” (because that excuses attacking an innocent woman multiple times),  ”Emma left him locked up to die first” (Childish ‘she started it’, while also ignoring the fact that Emma didn’t leave him to die), and ridiculous canon twisting like “Hook was trying to encourage Rumple to fight for his wife.”

And then there’s the fact that it’s either ignored that he confessed to raping women by getting them drunk to have sex with them, or try to explain it away with “he was talking about getting himself drunk” because context is another thing they brush aside.

I’m just done with it. The writers encourage this behavior because they do it themselves, so the fans who do it think they’re right and justified. It’s like talking to brick wall, so why even try? You wouldn’t try to argue with someone who’s arguing that the sky is neon purple, because how do you argue with people who think that facts are open to interpretation? You don’t. 

Anonymous asked:

It always made me mad how we're suppose to sympathize with everything Regina does simply because Daniel died. I'm not saying it wasn't a tragedy, but fact is, people die. Him and Regina could have succeeded in eloping and after a year of marriage he could have caught the plague and died, and Regina would have still had to go one without him. One person's death doesn't justify the murder of millions, especially when those people had nothing to do with what happened.

sincerelyaformerevilregal:

I’ve always had this headcanon that Cora would have found them anyway. Cora had a plan and she executed that plan by manipulating a 10-year-old girl. Cora was cold and calculating, so she may have been privy to anything Regina was doing. It’s not like Regina was actually hiding it; at least not good enough to throw her mother off.

Back to my headcanon, I don’t think that Cora would have simply let them go. I think she would have moved heaven and earth to find Regina & Daniel; when she found them, she would have killed Daniel anyway. Cora knew that would have been the only way she could get Regina to do what she wanted. Cora wanted to use Regina to live out her own hopes and dreams as a miller’s daughter, even though she ended up being royalty anyway.

None of what happened with her mother and Daniel justified Regina murdering all of those people. None of it; I’m not saying that it wasn’t screwed up, but I am saying that it was unnecessary and unjustified. When she did that, she garnered none of my sympathy. How could I have sympathy for someone who killed thousands of innocent people? If she hadn’t done that, I would still root for her. Except she didn’t, and now I just see her as a 18 year old girl who never grew up. She’s emotionally stunted and has to be coddled like a child by her peers.
