#it’s always easier to make someone smile when everything is fine#but what’s hard is to make someone smile when everything seems to be falling apart#and that’s exactly what killian does for emma#he makes her smile through the tears#he makes her smile when she’s had a really bad day#he even makes her smile when she’s constantly reminded of her darkness#when she has nothing to smile about#but he somehow gets her to even for a moment#and that so important to have someone like that in your life#that can somehow make you feel better#and give you hope#and comfort you#and make you believe even momentarily everything is going to be okay#and i’m glad emma has that in killian

gamzee is a piece of trash, fuck you.

I never denied what he is or what he’s done.  “#too impure for this world”, remember?  He crossed the moral event horizon like it was the gate to his promised land, which in a lot of ways it seems he believed it was.  

But who he was and could have been and his personhood as a character are all still important to me.  And if Vriska is getting a chance to “redeem” herself, I don’t see why Gamzee can’t at least have a chance to explain himself, and the fact remains he used to be a sweet, messed up kid on a beach and I miss that version of him that is never going to come back.

tl;dr I’m perfectly aware of all the gross shit he’s done.  I don’t want him to be a good guy.  I don’t think he’ll get redeemed.  I’m not sure what could happen that could possibly pull that off at this point, to be honest.  I will still fight you for him though.

Especially since anon haters are basically the lowest of the low as far as I’m concerned.

this was sent to me by the awesome cynicalhood!!

Calum and his daughter would have such an open, honest relationship. He’d always make sure she knew that she could come to him with absolutely anything. So one night a few months after she turns 16 she gently pushes open his bedroom door and asks, “Dad, can I talk to you about something?” And Calum knows it’s serious by the tone of her voice and the look in her eyes. He nods and shuts his laptop, patting the open space next to him on the king size bed. Once she’s settled in, she takes a deep breath and says quietly, “Dad, I think I’m ready to have sex with Josh…” Instantly, Calum’s mind is spinning and his stomach is churning and every cell in his body is screaming for him to shut this little idea down now. But he also knows that if he reacts badly to this, she’ll never come to him again. This time it’s Calum who takes a deep breath before meeting his baby girl’s eyes, the ones so similar to his own. “Do you love him, sweetheart?”

For the next two hours they talk seriously about all the important sex stuff (Calum asks if they need condoms, his daughter blushes furiously as she admits she already bought some; she asks to get on birth control and he agrees that it’s a good idea; he reminds her how important safe sex is, how he doesn’t want to be a grandfather before she finishes her education, but also how he’d still support the hell out of her if she did get pregnant) and in the end, his princess is curled into his side, fast asleep. Calum, on the other hand, is quietly wiping away tears as he thinks about how quickly she’s growing up. He’s so proud of the woman she’s becoming, but a selfish part of him wishes he could stop time. He’s so afraid that one day there won’t be room for him in her life.
