So I'm not american, and I've been living in the USA for 3 years now. I have a pretty strong accent and I can't pronounce some sounds right no matter how hard I fucking try. I joke about if, my friends joke about it (i say "three trees" as "tree trees" etc) and it's fine. But yesterday I met an internet friend and holy fucking shit. Every sentence I said was interrupted by him YELLING the words I said wrong back at me and then throwing his head back and cackling. I felt like fucking shit.

Lord that’s awful. I hope he’s no longer an internet “friend”.

Especially annoying because English is one of the least prescriptivist languages out there. Like there are dialects of English that I have trouble understanding, but they’re entirely valid dialects. A lot of Brits think American accents sound very nasal-y (they’re right, we nasalize a ton of sounds). I know Southerners who are embarassed about their accents. Linguistic and accent diversity is a good thing.

Lucifer wishes for it to be known that Michaels the asshole who threw him out in the first place and Gabriel wouldn’t’ve left if that hadn’t happened.

He’d been enjoying a book as he laid casually on the couch when a sudden weight catches him off guard and has him dropping his book.  The surprise gasp and widened eyes quickly change to a quirked brow as he takes in his brother above him.  “Lucifer?  What are you doing?”  He shifts underneath him, not sure what to expect.

He grins mischievously as he leans in to press a kiss to Castiels lips, “Kids are out for a bit. We have a few hours to fool around.” His mouth hovers over Cas’s skin, a forked tongue flicked out to lap against a now almost completely healed over bruise, “Unless you don’t want too, I guess.” 


“Helpless, weak and at your mercy. Told you, I’d do anything to be locked up in a room with you, where you’ll let me play with your gun. Told you, I’ll raise hell for you.”

AU: Spoiled rich kid with daddy issues who develops an obsession over a cop - a regular at a deli around the corner that he too begins to frequent.

Dear @saucefactory I was planning on a Cop AU for Gradence for a while now, but have been busy mastering the art of procrastination. Then I saw this post and your comment neath it and thought “IT IS TIME!”


“Promise me, Steve. Promise me you’ll give her a life we couldn’t have.”

GIFTED AU where Mary is Steve’s and Bucky’s daughter. And when S.H.I.E.L.D learns about the gifted child of the supersoldiers, they try all things possible to take her away from Steve, who’d given up on all to give Mary a normal life that he had promised Bucky he’d give her before Bucky had gone under.


“It would be my pleasure.”
