the btvs fandom really is like a cult. other fandoms sneer upon new people - we approach people like “have you dedicated your life to Buffy the Vampire Slayer yet? no? here’s why you should.”

"You joined the fandom fifteen years later? YAY. WELCOME FRIEND. HAVE YOU MET TARA YET?" 

"Welcome to the fandom, here’s your starter pack!"

If we can talk for a moment about how incredibly important this show is. 
This character showed that a fighting female character can garner the numbers necessary to stay on the air and launch a number of successful careers for those involved. This show changed the face of the horror genre, both for television and film. And to see a girl on network television kicking ass? (I’ll casually point to Xena: Warrior Princess here, too.) Buffy literally kicks ass, and she looks damn good doing it. She is a conflicted, imperfect teenage girl, but there’s a sense that, even without slayer abilities, she’d lay down her life to protect the people she loves. She struggles to be good, to be what the “real world” expects, to be happy so her family and friends won’t worry. She was never given the chance at a “normal” life, and the segment of her life that we’re shown is horrifying and heartbreaking. 
Buffy helped to pave the way for believable, strong female characters in television. (Do you really think there’d be a Veronica Mars without her? An Olivia Pope? Or Abbie Mills?) She influenced a whole generation of kids that looked to her and thought, If she can get through high school, so can I. Buffy was strong and beautiful. She proved that a woman can be sexual without being “a slut.” Can be emotional without being weak. She showed us it’s okay to be damaged and unsure. Because in her immortal words, “The hardest thing in this world is to live in it.”
She proved you can wear the dress and the leather jacket. You can do your makeup and carry a stake, a crossbow, a knife. You can be yourself, no matter how flawed or strange, and you can still have friends.
I learned from a whole host of real life women how to be strong, but I learned how to kick ass from Buffy Summers.

ITS NOT SEWING SUPPLIES!

My question is how does every single person identify with this, is it like a secret rule to use those for sewing supplies?

Is it just me or can you see the pain Roxas is going through right now just by how he is wielding his keyblades. Roxas is upset and angry. It looks as if he wants to hurt Sora and eliminate him. the amount of force Roxas puts into each swing is tremendous and even Sora has a hard time withstanding those attacks. all I can image is Roxas thinking “Shut up” “I am in pain because of you” ” why don’t you disappear already”. Once I took a good hard look at this scene I became sad and heart broken. Roxas has nothing left at this point and all he can do is fight.

Kaaay, this is highly experimental and I’m not sure I even like it. But I wanted to use color to represent their heritages, elements and bonds all at once.
Mako and Bolin are both dominated by the colors native to their elements but “reflect” each other’s colors as mixed-race brothers. 
Korra as the avatar has the colors of all four nations in her. I kinda wish I’d blended more blue in in a clever manner, but whatever. I’m just goofing. 
Then for Asami, being from Republic City and of confirmed Fire Nation heritage I have her bleeding into Mako’s red very heavily, but I wanted a little bit of green in her too under the headcanon that she’s had fire/earth mixing somewhere in her line. Purple has always been her chosen color for me—even though her color scheme in the show also leans more towards red—because it is a color not claimed by any element in particular.
The placement of the colors reflects their contact mostly, also intended to show how they’re all bonded in some way
The red string of fate is used in its more correct romantic implications throughout fanart—I decided to use it in a more liberal sense, reflecting that all kinds of bonds can tie people together

How Korra and Mako are holding hands like a couple would, and Korra and Bolin are linking elbows like friends would.

Yes. :) Furthermore, Korra’s hand is over Mako’s heart while Asami’s rests on his head, indicating his conflict in the triangle. Korra and Asami do not touch but are still connected by the string, which sources from Mako’s scarf, by the way, as a symbol of family. It is also left open ended because their family isn’t necessarily finished.
Finally the configuration of the pose was strategic. Korra leans on Mako’s advice, who leans on Asami’s kindness, who confides in Bolin, who looks up to Korra. But naturally these aren’t exclusive. Bolin depends on Mako’s skills and savvy, who needs Bolin’s optimism, for example. And so, their boxed or circular configuration means that they really are all depending on each other equally—including themselves.
