About 2 years ago (I found it by searching the Internet), you answered an ask about someone not being able to sign up for Tumblr, and I'm having a similar problem, except I couldn't find an answer for it. I try to sign up for Tumblr, and instead it redirects me to the log in page, then complains about how I'm entering the wrong e-mail and password. I've created about 5 new email accounts too. I also emailed Tumblr. Any suggestions? (They haven't replied.)
I’m sorry, anon. I have no ideas other than what I mentioned in that post, except for more drastic measures — use a different browser, restart your computer, try a different computer. You’re right about it redirecting you; it should be prompting you for a username, password, and email. Best of luck!
I just wanted you all to know that you can totally finish that piece that you’re working on, because you are super talented and wonderful and there are people that love you that would love to read your story, and you should totally do it.
You're a poet, right? I think Hermann has a complex history with reading and writing poetry given that remark of his. Write a poem from Hermann's perspective.
Allow me to apologize, anon, for sitting on this for two weeks (in truth, I wasn’t just sitting on it: I was drafting what follows). Yes, I’m a poet—and I also share your particular view of him, so this prompt hit quite hard. I’d like to thank whitmans-kiss for being my sounding board, because I haven’t written something that’s not a letter, email, or text-message in a character’s voice for a while (the last time I did anything similar to this may have been when I wrote the lyrics to a few of Joey’s SPB songs in The Series / Book of Hours). Thanks for the challenge! And here it is:
have you seen any articles about birds being able to 'see' earth's magnetic field because I'm just imagining Erik hovering around doing his dramatic stuff and a bunch of birds being drawn to him because he's messing with the field lines or whatever
Erik tries to do something Evil and Diabolical that involves a massive amount of his power and instead he ends up getting all tangled up in the magnetic field and seriously wrangles it
so all birds. in the world. go on their yearly migrations.
Imagine the events of Pacific Rim told from hermann's POV with a running internal commentary full of British snark, German swearing, and Newt's voice occasionally cutting in because he is just that distracting to Hermann's thought processes.
I would watch this movie every single day of my life
Also: Hermann mentally introducing Newt like “My lab partner, Newton Geiszler, is surely the most aggravating and offensive little man I have ever had the misfortune to work with in my entire life, I cannot think of a single redeeming feature of that short kaiju grrroupie,” and then Newt actually comes on screen and he’s like glowing and sparkling and got shojo flowers and hearts in the background b/c that’s secretly how Hermann sees him.
“Rage and Serenity from the soundtrack is practically a love theme for Charles and Erik because it’s a combination of their own individual Leitmotifs. This essay explains in more detail what makes the piece so poignant.
“…at 0:42, a small melodic motif is introduced, which seems to generally be used as Charles’ theme in the film. This continues to play as Charles acts as a mentor and friend to Erik, showing him the memory, and telling him to try again.
At 1:19 in the song, Erik’s theme comes in. Now, Erik has two themes: a calmer, somewhat arpeggiated electric guitar riff, and a more intense “Magneto” theme, generally used when he is doing something violent. The one used here is the calmer one. However, instead of taking over the music entirely, the guitar actually plays the theme in counterpoint to Charles’ theme, not sacrificing its unique timbre, but still blending in with the orchestra to create an amazing sound. The song builds to a climax as Erik finally moves the dish, and then fades away gently as Erik smiles and laughs, and Charles pats him on the back proudly.
This, more than anything, really enforces the metaphor that Erik and Charles are Rage and Serenity. They have their individual strengths and advantages, but they are stronger when working together to reach a single goal. And working together doesn’t erase either of their individual qualities—Erik is still Rage and Charles is still Serenity, just as the guitar is still a guitar and the orchestra is still an orchestra. Together, they create something new and better, something more than a sum of its parts, as the popular saying goes. That’s why the relationship between Charles and Erik is so powerful, and why this scene is so emotionally charged—they were practically made for each other, each perfectly complementing the other.””—tvtropes.com (x)
