'you tried' star for all of you

we tried
oh god, we tried
but maybe
m a y b e
you and i
we were never really meant to be
even though we so desperately wanted to be

they say love will conquer all
that it will prevail against all odds
but i guess sometimes
the stars just don’t align the way we want them to

anonymous asked:

What if after finding out about Marco being in love with Tom the girls keep trying to set them up in ridiculous situations? After much embarrassment from both parties, they stop and Marco ends up accidently confessing to Tom while they're hanging out at Tom's. Like he said something offhandedly then realized he confessed.

Awwwwwwww! This was such an adorable idea! I hope you like it! I kind of did it a little differently with how you asked about the girls setting them up. But I hope you like it anyway! I tried really hard on this! And I had fun playing with the bromance, and THEN romance. It was fun! Enjoy!

Tom and Marco were laughing hysterically as they talked about their latest meet up. Of course, it was what the girls set them up on. Star Janna, Jackie, Star Fan 13 and Ponyhead all knew of Marco’s HUGE crush on Tom. And they were not resting until the boys got set up on a date. And their little advances were proving confusing to Tom, and utterly embarrassing for Marco. But after, they always laughed them off.

“Why did they make you dress up so fancy?” Tom asked, giggled. Marco blushed at Tom’s cute smile. Tom always thought of his spiked teeth as weird, but Marco melted when he saw it, thinking it was so cute.

“I don’t know.” Marco lied. “I guess they just want us to hang out more.” He tried. Tom laughed again and Marco did as well. But Marco’s laugh was more giddy, like he was happy that Tom was happy.

“I guess so.” Tom agreed. “Maybe we do make good friends.” he smiled warmly and then laughed again. “What was it that Oskar called us? A bromance?” He asked. Marco laughed when he remembered that scene in the car.

“Yeah! You barged in on us, you stalker!” Marco teased, nudging the demon. “What’s your problem?” He smiled. Tom was laughing harder at the playful insult.

“Well maybe you can figure it out, Dr. Marco, PHD?” He tested. Marco blushed at Tom’s mischievous tone. “What IS my problem?” Tom asked. Marco smiled and pushed Tom away playfully.

“You like pushing buttons.” He joked. Tom laughed and shrugged.

‘That could be it. I guess that’s why I hung out with you so much this week.” Tom grinned. “You’re really fun to antagonize.” Tom smirked. Marco blushed a little more. Because even though Tom phrased it in a cold way, what he was really saying was “I like hanging out with you”. The two laughed and joked for a while longer. Marco loved it, he loved spending time with the demon. He felt loved and safe, like he could let his guard down and not pay attention or worry about what he was saying. Which proved to be a bad thing.

“So why is it the girls are trying to get us to hang out now?” Tom asked. Marco laughed and shrugged.

“Oh they’ve been like this ever since they found out I liked you.” Marco assured. Once he realized what he said, Marco stopped cold, in total horror. He looked over and saw Tom staring at him in shock.

“What?” Tom asked. Marco’s eyes widened.

“Nothing.” He gasped. Tom shook his head and got up.

“No, you said you liked me, AND you said that the girls knew.” Tom reminded. He shot up and began tugging on his ears.

“No! Not true!” Marco cried. Tom shook his head frantically.

“Marco! No! You have to be honest with me now!” Tom cried. He tugged down on his ears harder. “When you say you like me you mean you LIKE me?” He asked. “Oh god, oh god, oh god.” Tom was getting a little hysterical. He seemed anxious and like he was running ragged. Marco bit his lip.

“Tom? Are you okay?” Marco asked. Tom’s head shot up.

“It really depends.” Tom admitted. “Do you like me?” He asked again. “Marco please you have to answer me honestly! I need to know.” Tom stressed. Marco shrink away a little and rubbed his arm nervously.

“Yes… I’m in love with with you…” He sighed. Marco looked up and saw how ragged and anxious Tom looked. “Are you okay?” He asked again.

“I’m perfect!” Tom cried, jumping up a bit. Marco fell back and looked confused. Tom stopped tugging on his ears and dashed over to Marco, to scoop him up in a hug. “Oh Marco! I’m amazing! I’m absolutely amazing!” He cried. Marco pulled away and saw Tom’s eyes were growing shiny, like he was fighting not to cry.

“Tom?” He asked. Tom laughed and gave Marco another hug.

“You love me?” He asked. “You really truly do?” Marco blushed deeply and hugged the demon back.

“Yes, I do.” Marco admitted. Tom spun Marco in circles.

“Oh Marco! You don’t know how happy you’ve made me!” Tom cried.

“What? Really?” Marco asked. Tom nodded.

“I love you! I love you! I love you!” He grinned. “I’ve loved you for a long while now and I… I could never tell you.” Tom admitted. “I… I just…” He sort of trailed off and– although he was still laughing– tears began to fill his eyes.

“Tom?” Marco asked concerned. Tom laugh-cried some more.

“I-I-I love you… I do. I did for so long and I… never told you. But you love me! You love me!” Tom laughed. “I… I thought I was just… unlovable. Useless or… unwanted.” Tom looked away. He then looked right back up at Marco. “But you! You love me!” He exclaimed. “You… love me? You promise?” Tom asked. Marco put a hand over his mouth and dashed into the demon’s arms.

“Forever Tom, forever.”

“Everyone says your first love hurts the most,” she said. “But they must not have fallen in love a second time.”

I looked at her, so broken and cold. She was fiddling with the dirt under her nails just to keep her hands busy. “Why do you say that?”

She shuddered a little and tried to bring her jacket closer around her body. “You have your guard up the second time. It’s not so easy to let someone in,” she explained. “But eventually you do. And no matter what lessons you thought you learned from the first time, they all fade away when he looks at you and says he would never hurt you.” She met my eyes for a split second before looking up at the stars. I could see tears pooling in them, and her blue eyes resembled a roaring ocean. “But he will. He did. And then, you’re left all alone again, with even more scar tissue than you had to begin with.”

—  excerpt from an unfinished book #147 // The first cut isn’t always the deepest
Why I can’t and won’t finish watching Iron Fist

Before anyone tries to jump down my throat about being a stupid SJW who only cares about the race angle, I would first like to point out that I enjoyed the hell out of Daredevil, another Marvel Netflix show starring a white man practicing Asian martial arts. It’s all in the execution, guys. And the execution here is garbage.

Let’s start with the martial arts. For the love of fuck, if you just HAVE to get a generic white man to play the lead, the least you could do was get one who was good at traditional martial arts. There are a lot of them. Charlie Cox, one Netflix recommendation over, pulls off some of the best fight scenes I have ever seen in a TV show (also, the man can act, so that helps too). Last month, I watched a red-belt student of mine in a local production of Macbeth. At twelve, that kid has more talent (in the acting and martial arts departments) than this Finn Jones tool.

Jessica Henwick’s form is nothing to write home about but at least she’s better than Jones. And both our action heroes would benefit greatly from some less shitty fight choreography and editing. (Guys, just adding loud ‘swoosh’ sound effects isn’t going to trick me into thinking the sword is swinging faster. I can see it).

To add insult to injury, the show condescendingly tries to make me believe that this pasty-ass piece of mediocrity is a better martial artist than Colleen Wing?? Just has him casually trounce her in her own dojo. With those wibbly-wobbly stances, son? I don’t think so. This is not real life, nor is it good fiction. This is some flabby-ass white guy’s jerk-off fantasy of being super awesome and showing up the hot Asian chick without any understanding martial arts whatsoever.

The acting in this show ranges from serviceable to painfully inept (lookin’ at you Meachum Jr. or whatever the fuck your name is, I’ll have forgotten your whole existence by tomorrow for all the impression you leave). Even the competent performances in this show only serve to remind me of more interesting characters from Netflix’s other Marvel shows. For example, Jessica Stroup’s acting is similar to Deborah Ann Woll’s performance as Karen Page, only serving to remind me that Karen Page alone is a more interesting character with more compelling scenes than half the cast of Iron Fist put together.

I will say that Colleen Wing is quite appealing and I applaud Henwick for making her both tough and charming, not an easy line to walk. If I wanted to be mean, I could point out that she is essentially just a Claire Temple 2.0 in terms of her temperament and her role as shelter and support to the Main White Guy at the point of her introduction. But I don’t actually want to pick on Colleen. She’s cute and I like her.

Now, back to being mean: STOP trying to make white characters look cool by having them speak Chinese (or any language they can’t speak for that matter, though I feel Mandarin generally gets a special kind of mangling for the crime of being a tonal language). It doesn’t sound cool. I hate to have to be the one to tell you this, guys. It makes you sound like a fucking idiot. Okay, sure, maybe you succeeded in making your white English-speaking audience think, ‘yeah, that’s really cool, he must be super smart and badass, I want to be like that.’ But White people, I am telling you this for your own good: you don’t want to be like that. Because as cool as that butchered-ass Mandarin may sound to you, it’s like a band-saw to my eardrums. It brings everything to a cringing, teeth-grinding halt in the middle of what might otherwise be a perfectly good scene. Remember when Wilson Fisk had a conversation with Madame Gao in ‘Mandarin’? That was the worst part of Netflix’s Daredevil. Worse, it made me embarrassed for an actor I greatly admire. So, to whoever decided it was a great idea to have Wilson Fisk show off his Mandarin, thanks dickhead. You wrecked an entire scene for my favorite Marvel villain.

Oh yeah, and if any of you want to try to tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about, fucking come at me bro. I have a black belt and 10+ years of training in traditional martial arts. I am a Chinese-American woman, proficient in Japanese and Mandarin, and I double majored in East Asian History and Buddhist studies.

Oh, did I mention that our protagonist keeps condescendingly spouting mystical pseudo-Buddhist bullshit to everyone he meets? And then throws temper tantrums when they (shock!) don’t take him seriously? God, I hate this show.

If I want to see better acting, I can go see a middle school play. If I want to see better fighting, I can go to the dojo and watch my seven-year-old green belts spar. If I want to hear Buddhist philosophy mangled by self-impressed white people, I can go to the yoga studio next door.

Sleeping at Last

Sleeping at Last | Saturn

You taught me the courage of stars before you left.
How light carries on endlessly, even after death.
With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite.
How rare and beautiful it is to even exist.

I couldn’t help but ask
For you to say it all again.
I tried to write it down
But I could never find a pen.
I’d give anything to hear
You say it one more time,
That the universe was made
Just to be seen by my eyes.

Imagine this

Riverdale goes on for years, like 6 seasons or so. And every single season we are met with more and more beronica scenes and the tension between them builds and builds.
Then it’s the season finale. All the unsolved mysteries are solved. But something still seems missing. The closing scene we are met with Betty and Veronica sitting on a hilltop watching the stars. Veronica speaks first.
“Betty Cooper, after all this time I have never been able to shake the thought of you. Of us. I’ve tried distractions, but you always come back to the center of my attention. I love you Betty Cooper. I always have and I always will.”
Then Betty is taken aback by shock. She takes a second to recollect her thoughts.
“Veronica, after all this time I’ve done the same. I’ve tried distractions but my mind comes full circle back to you.” They share a kiss, just like how their friendship started. There is a flashback montage to nearly every moment that Betty looked at Veronica with those eyes and every moment Veronica smiled at something Betty did. Then we are met with a message, from the writers. That’s says
“There we fuckin made them canon get off our fuckin back”
And then roll the credits.

Apparently what made Supergirl special was a white dude coming in and be the focus of the show while Supergirl is sidelined for a unhealthy and toxic romantic plot line?

I’d say you didn’t even try at all at figuring out what made Supergirl special… All you had to do was ask the fans and we’d all answer that it was the female empowerment and how Kara was the star and did not depend on any male character. We’d say that the real love story is one between sister’s something we rarely see on TV.

But sure… You “tried” to figure out what made Supergirl special.


under the cut you will find, #108 faceclaims that can pass realistically as high schoolers and/or college students. i made this list because of three reasons: a) most of the lists i found were old and at least a good few years old so the ages are largely inaccurate b) and hence there have been more and more child stars that i feel that need to be added to this list c) and it’s about time we stopped playing ian, milo, holland, crystal, jack etc as high schoolers because let’s be honest rpc, they can’t. i love them too but let’s be real about their ages. most of them should have resources made already but almost all of them have videos etc that you can make resources out of.

please like/reblog if you found this helpful and if you have any more suggestions, feel free to message me! also i tried to keep the really overused fcs out of here but you’ll find a mix of underused, overused and neither fcs here. 

Keep reading

  • Person: "So how'd you two meet?"
  • Tom: "Oh, Marco chopped off my hand in front of my ex-girlfriend, and then sabotaged my date with her."
  • Marco: "And then Tom tried to kill me, twice...I think?"
  • Marco: "And then he tricked me into hanging out with him by bribing me..."
  • Tom: "But we sang a duet and I raised the dead for him and now we hang out all the time!!"
  • Person: "...."

Kanan: And so have I. We all have. In fact, sometimes I wonder if I have anything left to teach you.
Ezra: No, that can’t be true.
Kanan: My own Jedi training was limited.
Ezra: I don’t mean about the Force. I mean about life, about being a good person. That’s what you taught me.

While Zero Hour was an action packed season finale, this was one of my favorite moments. Kanan and Ezra are my favorite master-padawan relationship in all of Star Wars. Hera had tried to get Kanan to embrace his Jedi past and care about the bigger picture of the rebellion. But it took meeting Ezra for that to fully happen. Teaching Ezra helped Kanan to develop wisdom that he had missed from never having been fully trained. For Ezra, he has gained so much more than just Jedi training from Kanan. And we’ve seen many times when Kanan was there to provide emotional support for Ezra when he needed it the most.

I feel like I am this weird combination this weekend of “I am Not Doing Well” and “But don’t freak out”. Because like…on the one hand I have had this headache for two days (thanks global warming, a high pressure system causing 70F temps in February is totally normal) and I’m tired and nothing looks like anything I want to eat. 

On the other hand I got a bunch of fanfic done (4 to go!) and I made cultured butter and I TRIED to make chevre (it did not chev) and I think I may have successfully invented ukulele tabs for The Star Spangled Man. Also I’m feeling pretty good because I tracked my purchases for this month to see why I never have any money and it turns out groceries, so at least I know I’m not poor because I’m blowing all my cash on fripperies that somehow disappear before I get home.  

Guys if you ever feel like you are simultaneously a mess and killing it, just know you are not alone. 


Darth Vader is the most terrifying badass I have ever met as a character, he knows how to get shit done and when to get it done. In the original trilogy, he hunts down Luke Skywalker using any means necessary and tries to get him to turn to the Darkside.

In the animated series Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD, he still had that intimidating feeling after the Grand Inquisitor was killed. Just the moment when he arrives on Lothal and all you hear is the breathing and his iconic theme gets you hyped for season two.

The Force Awakens, all you see is an old relic of his helmet and it still gives you those vibes, man.





The introduction to Darth Vader was so pleasing. Seeing him in the bacta tank protected by Imperial Guards when Krennic approaches him screams the fact that he’s still recovering from his injuries.






From the very beginning science fiction was very male-focused or male-controlled. There were a few women involved, but an awful lot of them were just the wives of the fans. So when Star Trek started, it had a very large female component, which I think the networks never really understood…they persisted in feeling that all Star Trek fans were sixteen-year-old guys with acne who wore eighty-seven buttons on their shirts. I mean, we tried to tell them, but they never listened. A lot of people were drawn into fandom because of Star Trek, many of them women, and the old-line fans started to feel like they were losing their grip on their own hobby…

I’m not being very polite about this but, again, it was just a question of, ‘I want to talk about Asimov and you’ve never even heard of Asimov, so why are you trying to take over? There are so many of you!’ I mean, we had about four thousand attending the Worldcon in 1967, and then when Elyse Rosenstein and I decided to do our own convention, it was so many more people. So the science-fiction fans sort of felt overwhelmed and there was a certain amount of hostility.


Devra Langsam, quoted in The Fifty-Year Mission Volume 1 by Mark A. Altman and Edward Gross.

Interesting to hear from one of the key women figures in early Trek fandom on the dynamics of SF cons after Star Trek debuted, and how the resistance to Trek fans in SF was gendered.

Hiya! ^^ I would like to request hc's about an MC who is a kpop star or part of a group. I imagine they'd all be super surprised to see them at the party! I hope you both are well, and you don't have to do my ask if you wouldn't like to! Oh sorry, I'm starting to ramble again aren't I? Hahaaaa;;;

A/N: IM SO READY FOR THIS, FUCK ME UP (and dont worry i ramble a lot, I don’t think you were rambling sweetheart <3) ~Admin 404


           -He’s a big big fan of kpop

           -Follows all the popular groups and stars almost religiously

           -So when you (or Saeyoung) tell the group what your name is, he’s hYPED


           -You just couldn’t tell him right off the bat that yes, you were that person

           -You decided to surprise him at the party instead!

           -Because nothing is cooler than finding out you’re dating an idol of yours, right???

           -So when he sees you at the party he actually squeals like a little kid because WOW YOU’RE THERE AND YOU’RE AMAZING

           -“YOU KNOW MY S/O HAS THE SAME NAME AS YOU” “Yoosung it is me, I’m MC, I’m your s/o”

           -Poor baby faints right then and there. From then on he’s just always so in awe every time he looks at you. Always telling his friends about you; “Hey did you know i’m dating-” “YES YOOSUNG, YOU’RE DATING MC. THE MC. YES YOU LOVE THEM. YES THEY LOVE YOU. WE GET IT”


           -Yeah he’s heard all the popular groups and stars

           -Has a ton of respect for them all

           -After all, he is a music man himself musicals are different than pop music though zen

           -He’s also a firm believer of “He can date whoever he wants, famous or not”

           -When he’s down in the dumps and you come over to his house to cheer him up he’s really surprised

           -Why is there a famous star on my doorstep?? What do they want?? Are they here to say bad things about me too? whaT IS HAPPENING

           -You have to quickly calm him down and explain that no, you’re just MC and you’re here to cheer him up

           -He’s so confused and stays like that for a solid hour. He talks to you and he’s excited and all but he just…. cannot process that the MC he’s developed strong feelings for is also the famous star MC

           -You’re waiting for him at his home while he brings back some snacks for the two of you and he bursts through his own front door



           -The moment she knew your name, she was suspicious

           -Isn’t one for blindly believing something

           -So she thought it was merely a coincidence that you shared the name of a famous star

           -Except when she saw you in person at the party

           -She kept asking around to make sure that she was seeing you correctly

           -Not to mention she never remembered anyone mentioning the invitation of a famous kpop star???

           -“Jaehee, it’s me. MC. I helped organize the party, I didn’t realize I had to put myself on the list”

           -You helped whAT

           -Then and there is the moment she realized that your name wasn’t a coincidence and that she had asked planned on asking a famous kpop star to be her partner in opening a coffee shop

           -But she doesn’t treat you any differently, not at all. She just kind of fangirls in silence (until you catch her later at the party)


           -“Are you part of that famous group that’s all over the radio all the time?”

           -I guess that’s one way of greeting me, Jumin

           -When he saw you in person it just solidified his assumptions

           -Doesn’t treat you any different than he would have before, because you’re still you

           -You just happen to have a title as well. That doesn’t change who you are inside, ya know, the part he loves

           -But, the fact that you’re famous and you have no body guards concerns him to all hell??

           -That day on you’re surrounded by more body guards than you can even see

           -He actually admits to not hearing any of your work and you just sit there in awe

           -“Jumin do you live under a rock?” “Don’t be ridiculous, I live up here in my penthouse”

           -He actually buys all your albums and anything you’ve ever made later that day. Falls in love with your music and he’s so cute like he wears your merch when the two of you are relaxing at home


           -Knew from the background check, there’s no be reveal for you this time MC

           -Though he was REALLY REALLY excited that you’re the famous kpop star because he loves your music

           -Actually seen you live before which makes meeting you 10x more exciting

           -He throws in lyrics to your songs to try and let you know that “hey, mc, i know who you are but im keeping it a secret from everyone else”

           -HYPED AS HELL! The person he fell in love with is also the celebrity he had the biggest crush on

           -But that also scares the hell out of him because of his job??? He’s supposed to be in the shadows??? How would this even work out?

           -Despite it all, he still came to the apartment to protect you

           -You expected a big “wow i can’t believe its you” but instead you just got ignored and you’re just left there kinda like???? dude???

           -But when the two of you head out to Mint Eye headquarters, your music started to blare in his car and he couldn’t turn it down fast enough

           -EMBARRASSED AS ALL HELL, he’s as red as his hair and finally admits that you’re his favourite recording artist and has been for years. Even admits that he’s the owner of your fanclub fucking dORK


           - can he even see you

           - im sorRY I HAD TO THROW THAT IN JUST FOR 626

           -Really really surprised to see that you’re the famous MC

           -Actually enjoys your music a lot and has photographed you at a few of your shows

           -Never sold the pictures though because those are personal to him what a fanboy

           -He feels TERRIBLE that you got caught up in all of this, he doesn’t think you deserve the trouble at all

           -When he meets you in person, the first thing he does is apologize profusely

           -After a very long time, and the two of you end up together, he didn’t even realize that one day he wore a t-shirt of yours until you pointed it out

           -Immediately starts to stutter and turn bright red. The gig was up so he decided to show you some of those pictures he’s taken as well

           -He’s your favourite photographer at every show from then on and he’s loving the hell out of it <3


           -Also knew from the beginning

           -He’s not into kpop, he’s into some harder music, forget that MC

           - somebody’s being a LLLIIIAAAAAARRRRR

           -After a while, when the two of you get close, you catch him listening to a few of your songs

           -You never say anything though because if you catch him, he gets embarrassed and just walks out of the room

           -Hates publicity (or the public population in general, take your pick) so he avoids it at all cost

           -But he does think it’s pretty cool that you’ve created music, like he wishes he could do something like that

           -Protects you from his fanboy of a brother who’s always hanging all over you

           - calm down saeran it’s in an idol-appreciation way

           -Literally does not care if you’re famous or not. He has no more fucks to give. None I tell you, none
