Overheard a conversation last night.

On the phone, my brother-in-law asked my husband: How’s Raven?

Nik has essentially given up on explaining to people the laundry list of what I do. So he answered: Great! Lots of irons in the fire. Actually, it’s really more iron than fire. But that’s how it’s been since I’ve known her.

And it occurred to me that this feels like a Gemini thing.

Geminis: All the irons in the fire. Actually, more iron than fire.

here’s something quick and dirty (it’s sfw, just messy) that i never wound up using, set during shepard’s house-arrest prior to ME3. i have no idea when i wrote this! shepard is, as usual, saintly shepard. thanks guys~ (also, i love bailey. what a guy.)

Shepard opens the door with a jaunty swing, and one corner of his mouth quirks up.

“Bailey-bear, ain’t you a sight for sore eyes.”

The Commander gives him a withering look, but steps inside when Shepard moves out of his way. “I swear, the longer they keep you holed up like this, the braver you get, and that’s saying something.”

Shepard only waves a dismissive hand at Bailey and turns on his heel, heading further into the apartment and plucking a few paper cards, littered with his doctor’s scrawl, off a small table. “Here’s groceries,” he says and waves them, waiting for Bailey to catch up to him before he hands them over. “And yeah, you know, gotta keep it fresh. I figure if I’m annoying enough, maybe Anderson’ll get me out of this dump.”

“Some people might consider a free apartment with no living expenses a gift, Comman – up, I mean.” Bailey hesitates and Shepard watches the conflict happen on his face, chewing on the inside of his cheek when Bailey only shrugs. “Shepard.”

It’s now after 5 pm, and neither of my follow-up calls got the fucking pcp on the phone.

Also, Little decided to throw the biggest tantrum I’ve ever seen from him in the middle of Charlie’s CASA visit. I sent him to his room where he screamed like a wild animal and threw things for 20 minutes. What the fuck.

anonymous asked:

I don't know why people keep insisting on the fact that margot look older than she really is. I mean, does it matter that much? For me what's most important it's her talent and the person that she is! I love her so much and I would love even if she was 40 or more

I really don’t know. We’ve been having debates about Margot’s age basically since we started this blog and it’s getting tiring tbh. She’s just a normal 26 year old. Age is a strange thing. Some 20 year olds look like 12, some look older. Just like you said, what matters is that she’s talented, and a wonderful person.

20 Things You May (or May Not) Know About BBC Sherlock

As culled from various interviews, the DVD commentaries and assorted miscellany. I tried not to go with the more obvious bits of trivia (like Benedict dyes his hair) but if you’re a hardcore fan, you’ll likely still know all of these anyway:

  • Martin Freeman plays army doctor John Watson, formerly with the Royal Army Medical Corps. In real life, Martin’s grandfather was a medic with the 150th Field Ambulance, RAMC, during World War II. Leonard Freeman was killed in a Luftwaffe attack on May 24, 1940, during the Battle of Dunkirk.
  • Benedict Cumberbatch was the only actor asked to audition for the role of Sherlock, after Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue saw him in the film Atonement and Mark Gatiss, who’d worked with him on the film Starter for 10, vouched for him. Benedict’s audition was filmed in Beryl Vertue’s London flat, where she served tea and biscuits “like Mrs. Hudson.”
  • (The Great Game) In the scene where Sherlock examines Carl Powers’ shoe in the lab, his solo shots were done on a separate day than the shots with John. They had to shoot part of the scene without Martin Freeman after he was injured from slipping on the icy steps of a production trailer.
  • The pilot and A Study in Pink were filmed one year apart (in 2009 and 2010, respectively).
  • The dog in Hounds of Baskerville was named Whiskey after Mark Gatiss’ own childhood dog. Kirstie’s pet was an homage to Mark’s husband Ian’s childhood pet, a rabbit named Bluebell.

—  20 things I wish my parents told me

1. You are not perfect. You will make mistakes and they will line your mind like dominions, which will fall into each other in the middle of the night. You will feel guilt. But it is important to let those feelings go and go to sleep.

2. You will get really drunk once. Your head will hurt the next day for hours and you’ll feel stupid when you wake up in your party dress. You’ll realize that drinking didn’t make you cool.

3. You’ll try a cigarette. It will be beautiful, the way the smoke drifts in the wind on a cold winter night, watching the world from a balcony. But you’re not watching the world, you’re watching a small neighborhood where all your friends smoke. Your health is better than seeming beautifully mysterious. You can shine like the sun without smoke obscuring your face and lungs.

4. Your heart will get broken, you will break someone else’s heart. But you will heal from both, and you will find the kind of love you’ve been looking for.

5. You will look into the mirror and accept your body, and all its so called flaws. You will still have days where you feel awkward or unattractive, but you will also have days where you feel beautiful.

6. Be kind to homeless people. Talk to them and offer them a warm drink or snack from a near by shop. Get to know them and you’ll find yourself.

7. Don’t buy the shirt just because everyone else thinks it’s cool. Go with yourself.

8. If your parents are kind enough and able to pay for your education, thank them. You are eighteen it is not their responsibility, it is their gift to you.

9. Take at least one Creative Writing course in college.

10. Travel as often as you can. Even if it’s just to another city an hour away. See even the small, seemingly insignificant parts of the world.

11. Every picture looks better in black and white.

12. Buy the concert tickets. You never know if the band will break up.

13. Sometimes a weekend in your room with a good book is better than forcing yourself to go out and be social. Take time for yourself, but don’t isolate yourself from the world.

14. Get up early and watch the sunrise on the beach as often as you can.

15. Your family members will judge you, your friends will judge you, but you need to follow your moral compass and what makes you happy.

16. Dye your hair the color you want it at least once.

17. Some clothes don’t photograph well, but knowing you looked amazing in that outfit will always be worth more than the posting the picture on Instagram.

18. Your friends that you had in high school will drift from you and you will drift from them. It is a natural part of life. You are under no obligation to stay friends with people who do not uplift you.

19. You will change the most from 15-20. You won’t recognize yourself from high school. It is important to learn from the past, but do not dwell on it.

20. You will be happy, scared, and ready to take on the rest of your life.

—  20 things i’ll never tell you (via lost-with-alaskayoung)

20 things that american horror story has taught me

1) don’t masturbate in front of windows, because creepy men might be watching you and then later kill your mistress.

2)  if your first impression of a boy includes him giving you suicide advice, you probably shouldn’t fall in love with him, because he will have sex with your mother, and she will get pregnant, and die.

3) don’t cheat on your wife with your neighbor, because they just might set themselves and your children on fire.

4) it’s okay to kill your classmates as long as you pretend you didn’t do it, but don’t ever rape your significant other’s mother. that’s just sick.

5) if your psychotic patient talks to you  in sessions about fucking your daughter, then, chances are, he’s probably going to fuck your daughter.

6) suicide by SWAT team is the most honorable type of suicide there is. it is the american seppuku.

7) always lock your ipod when leaving it unattended. you don’t want your murdering ghost boyfriend to play music randomly while you’re being surrounded by gore-covered spirits and accidentally push you over the edge of sanity.

8) become a vegetarian. you never know when you might walk outside, wanting a big, juicy steak, and instead get killed by a shovel to the head. if you’d wanted a tofu burger, well, you’d still be alive.

9) studying for exams will get you killed. always go to that concert or party, because you never know when somebody will make you put on a nurse’s outfit and then stab you in the back with a knife multiple times.

10) free camaros and great sex does not equal a gunshot to the eye and being damned to the murder house for all of eternity.

11) always check the man behind the mask before having sex with him. he just might impregnate you with the antichrist.

12) always google your potential boyfriends. it might not seem like it, but school shootings should be brought up on the first date.

13) if you meet someone with a big dick, he might fuck your whole family!

14) don’t eat cupcakes off the floor.

15) if you’re trying to win her over, axe her would-be murderer in the stomach. bitches love axes.

16) if you don’t like someone, you should set them on fire!

17) screaming “GO AWAY!” will, surprisingly, actually make someone go away.

18) if your daughter cuts herself, rarely eats or talks, has no friends, stays inside her room all day, and overall lives in a dark cloud of melancholy, then she just might be -drum roll please- depressed.

19) always recycle your rubber suits. you never know what kind of weirdos may rummage through your garbage bins and then rape your wife.

20) if somebody tells you you’re going to die in there, then, lo and behold, there is a possibility that you should get the fuck out of there because you just might actually die in there.

20 things I learned by 20

1. Little kids are the light in this world. If you ever need be cheered up, spend some time with your nephew, niece, sister, brother, kid, or whoever. They will have you laughing in a few seconds and help you realize things are a lot more simple than you originally thought.

2. Women are the most incredible, strong, capable, generous, and devoted species to walk this planet. Hold each other up.

3. Do things. Go on hikes with your best friend even though the sun is disappearing. Get a little too drunk, figure out your limit. Go on drives and discover quiet roads. Go get a milkshake with your friend, even if you’re fighting–milkshakes help heal.

4. Compliment people. Tell the boy scooping your ice cream that he has nice eyes–he will tell you that you just made his entire day. If you are thinking to yourself about how much you like someone’s outfit, hair, makeup, laugh, positivity, smile, voice, hands, ideas, or whatever it is, tell them. Tell them because they deserve to know and this world is in dire need of a little more kindness.

5. Let go. Let go, let go, let go, let go, let go. Let it all go.

6. I know sometimes breathing feels like an impossible task, but just take a deep breath. Open up your chest, let the air fill that space, hold it for a second, and exhale all the bullshit. You’d be surprised how much a deep breath can straighten some thoughts out.

7. Feelings have one purpose, to be felt. Don’t let them sit inside you and resonate. Scream about them, run about them, talk about them, cry about them, learn about them, but whatever you do, don’t keep them inside.

8. Be gracious. To your parents, your grandparents, your best friend, your teachers, your boyfriend/girlfriend/partner/whatever you want to call them. Someone loves you, and when someone loves you, let them know how much you appreciate that.

9. Being able to laugh at yourself is one of the most empowering things you could possibly do.

10. Cuddle with your best friend. I promise nothing gets better than snuggling up to them and talking about anything from what you should eat for dinner to whether you should go to medical school.

11. Pamper yourself. Go to LUSH and buy face masks or bath bombs or their new massage bar–it’s okay to spend money on yourself, you deserve it.

12. Stress will literally sit in your body if you don’t handle it the right way. It can sit in your stomach, show up on your face, increase your blood pressure, impede on your sleep, etc. Make sure you have ways to deal with that stress–go get coffee, step outside, put away your study materials for a night, organize your time, get dinner, see a movie–just make sure you manage it.

13. Sometimes people, even family, can become too toxic for you. There comes a time when you have to decide if they are more harmful than loving–and when you decide, give them a respectful goodbye. Then, keep on living.

14. The best conversations happen in the car.

15. Your entire life doesn’t need to be figured out today. Take classes, talk to the nice man on the bus about his bowling team, go on trips with 11 other strangers, take a sign from a fellow feminist and stand up with them. Discover your passions in things you never thought you’d find anything in.

16. If you have the opportunity to travel, whether it’s to Paris, France or to Lexington, Kentucky. Go. Every single place has something there for you, to learn from, love, or recognize.

17. Dance. Dance when you need a break from studying, when you want to cheer up a friend, when you’re excited about something, when you’re a little tipsy, when you’re in the car (pay attention to the road though), or when you need to feel better. Turn up the music and just dance–you don’t have to be good at it to have fun with it.

18. Sitting in the kitchen with your best friend’s mom, your mom, or your grandma while they’re cooking can cure almost any trouble.

19. Dogs will always love you. They will always be there for you. They’re going to try to lick your scraped knee, they’re going to lay their head on your feet when you’re sad, and they’re going to let you pet them for hours because you can’t think about anything else.

20. There is so much more to learn. I’ve learned 20 huge things by 20, but the most important thing I’ve learned is that you can never stop learning.

Kid President’s 20 Things We Should Say More Often
