I Collect...Bears?

Rilakkuma is a character created by the Japanese company San-X. He debuted in 2003 with a line of plushies and stationery. Despite not being as popular as Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma is a popular character in Japan, with San-X releasing new content almost every month.

The story of Rilakkuma goes like this: an office worker named Kaoru comes home one day to find Rilakkuma in her apartment, who just mysteriously appeared. Along with him was a smaller, white bear, Korilakkuma. Kaoru lets them stay and the two become friends with Kaoru's pet bird, Kiiroitori. Rilakkuma is lazy, spending most of his days relaxing and eating. Korilakkuma is very mischievous and loves to play pranks. Unlike the two, Kiiroitori is the responsible one - the one who ends up cleaning their messes and is bent on being frugal.

Like Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma products include plush toys, stationery, home goods, etc. Collectors usually seek out plushies; new designs or "series" as they are referred to are released every few months. There are also annual plushies, one for the New Year, Halloween, and Christmas.

Steven Universe Theory: Ronaldo will be a surprise antagonist

This theory isn't really based on concrete clues, but more on symbolism. This also doesn't have much hold, and is just a fun little theory I thought of.

We all know Ronaldo as the resident blogger and sole maintainer of the blog "Keep Beach City Weird". He's often walking around, phone in hand, ready to update his blog about "strange occurences" that's happening in Beach City. Ronaldo is a deep believer that something is being hidden from the general public, that there is something going on. Before "Jailbreak", in the episode "Keep Beach City Weird", Ronaldo is under the impression that the strange happenings are caused by "Sneeple" (snake people). He was heavily invested in this idea until Jasper and Peridot came to Earth in a giant hand spaceship, causing the residents of Beach City to evacuate.

Recent TV Character Departures

Danny Pino (Nick Amaro from Law and Order: SVU)

In May, Danny Pino left Law and Order: SVU, his character "Nick Amaro" decided to forgo an early retirement after realizing he can't move up the ranks due to his past records. Amaro entered the show in Season 13 as a replacement for Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni).



Benson initially did not get along with Amaro, mostly due to her being hurt by Stabler's sudden retirement. However, they managed to form a tight friendship as the seasons passed. Ironically, Benson and Amaro parted ways on a much sweeter note - Benson tells Amaro in the finale that she felt his friendship was good for her, as it allowed her to grow, compared to her relationship with Stabler. This "shade" illicited controversy amongst fans, especially those who shipped Benson and Stabler together.

The reason for Pino's departure is apparently his family, as his wife and children live in LA, and Pino has to commute and live in New York to film SVU episodes.

Here's to more roles in Pino's feature.


Jake T. Austin (Jesus Adams-Foster from The Fosters)

The Fosters' season two finale ended in a cliffhanger, as mom Stef (Teri Polo) is called into a car crash caused by a hit and run. Earlier, it was shown that Stef's adopted children, Mariana and Jesus, and their biological mother, Ana, were involved in the crash. After the finale aired, Austin tweeted about how he had enjoyed all the time spent on the show, but was leaving. This caused fans to speculate that Austin's character, Jesus, had died.


However, in the season 3 pilot, we learn that Jesus, Mariana, and Ana were all able to walk away from the accident with minor injuries, and that Jesus was at boarding school. It has been confirmed that Jesus will stay on the show, and will appear at the fall premiere. However, Jesus will now be portrayed by actor Noah Centieno.

Replacing a character with a different actor was common back in the olden days of TV, it was done on The Brady Bunch, Roseanne, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,etc. But how audiences will react now, only time will tell, when Centieno debuts as the new Jesus.

For the writers out there -- have you ever had a story in your head for a while (sometimes years) but just can't get going on it? What are your tips for dealing with this type of writer's block?
I usually write down a synopsis of the whole thing (if I have the whole plot) and if there's any segments of the story that I'm able to write down, I write those down first even if they're just vignettes. I'll read what I've written down over and over and read the synopsis. Usually at this point I see what can be improved or things I want to change and if I take like some quiet periods of time it starts coming to me.

Good luck!

This is stupid but I'm gonna write a little bit about my trash bby, since we're in the midst of Zaynmageddon.

I've stanned his trash ass for 3 years and I've probably written on my now-defunct blog numerous times about why he's important to me. So we can skip that. Disclaimer first: yes, he's not shit, and yes he's trash, and no I'm not going to defend his fuck ups. So...anyway.
