HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY FINAL FANTASY XIII
Well damn. That means it’s been almost 4 years since I joined Tumblr!
Just started talking about his work in my Contemporary class.
Andy Goldsworthy will always be one of my favorites. I think his documentary is still on netflix? I should look… I’m not sure.
I can’t believe I kept forgetting to post this. This is what happened when my little sister went through the “Dive Into the Heart” tutorial of Kingdom Hearts and was made to choose between the sword, the staff, and the shield.
Now, I try never to be a backseat gamer… but the first rule of Kingdom Hearts is that picking the shield is for losers. So naturally, I informed my sister of this rule. Loudly.
But Livvy… picking the shield will get you the ability Lucky Strike at level 24. If you pick the sword (like I did) then you have to wait til you’re level 90, which makes getting the Ultima Weapon more difficult.
Not officially canon but plausible………

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN???
Elijah Wood & Leonardo DiCaprio at the Academy Awards in 1994
If you see something like this, DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!
Call a beekeeper, they can relocate the hive instead of killing them. Bees are dying at an alarming rate, please do not contribute to that! They are so important for our ecosystem!
yo fuck this i aint gonna call no beekeeper i’m moving before i’m dead
I’m going to call an exterminator so the exterminator can kill them. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that there are less bees in the world.
No bees = no food.
No food = no life.
Congratulations on destroying the world.
Because you seem to not understand that bees pollinate flowers and literally bees are the reason we have food.
Did you guys even watch bee movie
you really really must call a bee keeper!
Time for a PSA from your local beekeeper
Call a fucking Bee Keeper.
Try calling a local bee keeper. You would make their day, a nuke or box of bees costs just under $100 this is like a free hive of bees for them. Not only would they take the bees but they would probably do it for free. if more bees start gathering in the same spot DON’T WORRY these are the bees that were probably out looking for flowers, just call the beekeeper again and they should come collect the left over bees. Bees will go away once their queen is gone!
Guess what BEES POLLINATE 90% OF THE FOOD YOU EAT AND THEY ARE DISAPPEARING
Killing off hives like this only hurts you and the environment >:(
This is another scene that, after looking at tensai-shoujo’s translation, I feel as though there was so much that wasn’t conveyed.
Everything that Not-Serah says is both understandable and consistent with what we’ve always known of Lightning… right up until 1:07, when Not-Serah says, “Do you remember? What you tried to do? You tried to kill me.”
The first time I heard this line, it essentially threw off the mood of the rest of the scene. Lightning shut herself away from other people even during XIII, but not once did she ever intend to harm Serah. Looking at tensai-shoujo’s work reaffirmed my faith in this bit, because what’s said in Japanese is completely different.
Serah: Do you finally remember now? Do you finally remember the part of you that you killed?
In actuality, the thing Lightning tried to kill has nothing to do with either the real Serah or the fake one. It’s Lumina, who was created from Lightning’s decision to shut herself away from other people. Lumina is the physical embodiment of everything that Lightning hated about herself.
And there’s something in the English text that’s not fully conveyed through the dialogue: the only thing holding Lightning back from rejoining Serah is herself. Lightning is hiding what she really wants because she thinks it will protect Serah. Lightning doesn’t want to be rational, and it’s the fake Serah’s words that seem to spark this realization in her.
Lightning: It’s necessary! Someone has to stay here to support the new world!
Serah: There you go again, convincing yourself with logic and holding down your true feelings. If you’re so willing to throw her away by killing your true emotions, you should be alone forever!
Compare that last line of the Japanese translation to English Serah’s “You deserve to be alone!” at 1:54. That change alone makes for two completely different scenes.
In the end, however, Lightning does choose to accept the parts of herself that she chose to cut away long ago. Instead of being “strong” for Serah’s sake, she acknowledges her flaws… and in doing so, she’s able to accept help from her loved ones.
Now that I better understand what’s going on here, I really appreciate this scene so much more. It’s a fitting resolution to Lightning’s deepest internal conflict, and it highlights so much of what makes her such a remarkable character.
This is good to know. I’ll keep this in mind when I play the English version.
