I’ll keep the souvenir inside, 
It’s just better in my mind.

#it’s just that not even a year ago lydia was telling allison to start over#to let go of everything that happened and to pick herself back up#and now lydia has to try and learn how to start over without allison#which is something she never imagined she would have to do#she has to learn how to pick herself back up after she lost her best friend.

au: the mitchell siblings - john and jane mitchell

the most dangerous and famous brother and sister vampire duo in vampiric history - with their co-dependency and their kill anything attitude; who travel the world and kill whoever they want in their fancy but messy suits and dresses; who drink their blood like it’s fine, aged wine; who suffer from the occasional crippling morality crisis…

It occurred to me today that since a lot of the morale boosts on Chorus revolve around stories about the reds and the blues, then it stands to reason that one would develop and revolve around Wash and Tucker.

After all, there are soldiers who were there when Tucker screamed Wash’s name and refused to leave. There’s that medic who was there to hear Tucker’s voice falter on Wash’s name when he asked where the others were. And then there’s all those rumors about how driven Tucker is and how he’d do anything to get Wash back.

And not just that, either, because these soldiers have been raised on a steady diet of heroic stories about the BGC and Project Freelancer. They have the stuff they knew before they met them and all the stuff they learned after they showed up. They have Grif’s stories. They have Caboose’s stories.They’ve undoubtedly heard about how the blues took in the bitter and broken soldier with the tragic past and taught him how to trust again.

But what if they’ve heard the other stuff too? What if they heard Simmons talk about the way Wash put a gun to Carolina’s head when she threatened Tucker? What if they’ve heard Caboose talk about how they were always hanging out with each other? What if they heard Grif flippantly mention their really awkward couple’s arguments?

They might just get the wrong idea.

And why not? Let’s face it: it has all the makings of an epic love story: two lovers torn apart by war, frantically searching for a way to find their way back to each other. It’s bullshit, of course, but it gives the soldiers something to root for, so they build it up into something amazing. They build it up until it’s the love story of the ages. They build it up until it becomes this whole big thing, and when they rescue Wash and get to safety, everyone holds their breath for the big reunion…

And nothing happens. Not a thing. Tucker is relieved and ecstatic and so fucking happy, but he’s not throwing his arms around Wash, and Wash isn’t kissing him desperately, and everyone there feels absolutely CHEATED.

It’s all the rage of anyone who have read every book in a series or have seen every episode of a show and felt completely letdown by a stupid-ass ending that made no sense. It’s bullshit, and they’re not going to stand for it.

Thus starts the greatest matchmaking scheme anyone has ever seen.

Sherlock really thought John was still gonna be in 221B

Mycroft mentioned 221B and Sherlock smiled in his chains after being tortured

And then when he got back to 221B it was empty of all John’s things and he was alone again

so i’m reading a paper for my seminar about the feasibility of widening earth’s orbit via close approaches with objects from the outer solar system. (they lose orbital energy and we gain it, then supposedly they get it back from coming near jupiter on their way out, similar to how the cassini mission used jupiter to “slingshot” outward.) the idea is that the sun is gradually getting brighter, and that that increase will be catastrophic for earth’s biosphere long before the sun reaches the end of its lifetime. in 3.5 billion years, the sun will be about 40% brighter than it is now and there will be a “runaway greenhouse effect” that will effectively end life on the planet. however, the sun still has another six billion years or so left on its main sequence.

in ~6.3 billion years, the sun will be 2.2 times brighter than it is now, and an object at 1.5 AU would get the same energy as we currently do at 1 AU. so if we widen earth’s orbit over time, we can dramatically extend the lifetime of earth’s biosphere. anyway, assuming all magically goes to plan, the author suggests about a million such approaches over the course of the next ~six billion years—it works out to one approach every 6000 years or so.

these timescales are making my head hurt.

If life was a game, you would never play nice,
If love was a beam, you’d be blind in both eyes,
Put your sunglasses on, ‘cause you’re a Deer in the Headlights.

OKAY SO AS A BONDING EXERCISE WE HAD TO TURN AROUND AND MASSAGE THE PERSON IN FRONT OF US’S BACKS……….AND THE GUY BEHIND ME WAS HOVER MASSAGING ME…………….I FUCKING CAN’T BREAHTE…

Day 3: the moment you fell in love with your ship (aka the point of no return)
Jade Dumps Beck | “Who said I stopped?”, because shut up kisses are magic, and just because Beck and Jade are broken up doesn’t mean they don’t love each other anymore
