I-just-adored-this-little-moments

Hi guys,

Just a quick little note to say that I’m not going to be around as much for a while. The negativity and stress in this fandom is getting to me, as much as I try and curate my dash to suit my tastes, it doesn’t always work. I’ve got some stuff going on in my life at the moment and the last thing I need is my escape place to be riddled with things that make me feel worse.

I’ll still be about, just not in the same way.

I still adore you all a bunch <3

60 Favorite Spuffy moments

1. “Hello, Cutie.”

Why I love this moment: The chemistry between Sarah and James in this scene is absolutely wonderful. It also establishes a certain complexity between Buffy and Spike. It’s the start of a not-so-black-and-white relationship, not just good and evil.

2. “She plays the…”

Why I love this moment: Why is he helping her? I think this little moment gives us foreshadowing into Spike’s eventual change. And it also shows that he doesn’t totally hate Buffy, which is adorable.

3. “You got any of those little marshmallows?”

Why I love this moment: Okay, this isn’t exactly a Spuffy moment. But it does highlight one of the best things about Spike: his humor. And I guess I like to look back and see things like this because I go: “Aw, he was always a little softy.”

4. “Spike had a little trip to the vet…”

Why I love this moment: Basically, I just love this scene/situation in general, but the fact that Spike is under the impression that he could just run on over to Buffy and she’d help him with the “impotence” is so funny to me. But the thing is she sort of did help. I mean, she tied him up, sure, but she also didn’t kill him. So????

5. Kiss the Librarian

Why I love this moment: It’s not just the moment pictured here that I love. It’s everything from “Giles, help! He’s gonna scold me!” to “Giles, make her stop!” to “Put the telly on.” The bickering is wonderful to see, for me. 

6. Something Blue

Why I love this moment: Again, not a moment. I was going to divide this up into its respective moments, but that would take forever. So we’re gonna do this. While they were engaged, I loved how much they reminded me of Spike and Dru’s relationship. Because, let’s be for real, Buffy was acting crazy as hell. And Spike was still very predatory and dark. But he was also very fluffy and sweet. So, ya know.

7. “Lips of Spike!”

Why I love this moment: They fucking saw that they were kissing each other and it fucking put it into their heads. You know it did. It sure as shit did for Spike. 

Gif credit: x

8. “Because it’s wrong.”

Why I love this moment: I understand that this is Faith in Buffy’s body, but Spike doesn’t know this. You know what he knows? That, holy shit, Buffy is actually pretty hot, and did she say “pop me like warm champagne?” Also, what he says after that (”you and I are gonna have a confrontation”), doesn’t that sound so strange? Like, almost as if he had to say something threatening to avoid thinking about…well, you know.

9. “Oh, I saw that!”

Why I love this moment: Well, for one, Spike is being a little shit. That’s always great. But it shows early on how well he understands Buffy (”looks like neither boy is entirely welcome.”)

10. “Oh, God no. Please, no.”

Why I love this moment: Do I need to explain? Basically, I saw this coming as soon as Angel left the show. So, I wasn’t surprised, but I just love how Spike doesn’t even try to deny it or get rid of the feeling. He’s just like, “Oh, shit. Fuck.”

11. “And…you have stupid hair.”

Why I love this scene: Let me just explain by typing out his internal dialogue.

Ah, shit she’s found me. Fuck, this has gotta look bad. Okay, explanation time, be cool. Out for a walk…bitch. Fuck, the ‘bitch’ was unnecessary. Don’t hate me, please. Okay, be sassy. Be super sassy. Insult her boyfriend, that’s what other dudes do, right? Fuck, abort. Abort quickly. Final word, always have the final word. You have stupid hair. Shit, gtfo. 

12. “I’ve always been bad.”   

Why I love this moment: Because, Spike, no you weren’t lol. And also, Buffy gets to sit there and listen to the backstory of William the Bloody. Not the traditional way future couples tend to get to know each other, but it happened at least.

13. “You’re beneath me.”

Why I love this moment: Because we see where Buffy stands with Spike. It’s important to know that because then you can see her growth, which is amazing. Also, it lets us know that Spike isn’t just trying to get into Buffy’s pants; he really loves her. 

14. “Is there…something I can do?”

Why I love this moment: He was supposed to be freaking blowing her head off! Yet, when he saw her sad, he immediately tried to be there for her. And he didn’t push. He just sat with her. And you know she appreciated it because she ended up telling him about her mother. Such a beautiful scene.

15. “I need to show you something.”

Why I love this moment: For one, this is a very “no, bad Spike” moment, because his noble act of ratting on Riley is totally selfish. But I chose this gif because it’s such a funny line. And he’s so flustered about it, too. Super cute.

16. “Do you really think you’ve got a shot with her?”

Why I love this moment: “No, I don’t. But a fella’s gotta try, though. Gotta do what he can.” Just…Spike breaks my heart here. He loves her so deeply that he’d rather be in Riley’s position, to be close to her but not have her. That’s big. And it’s got to be miserable for him.

17. “I lie awake every night!”

Why I love this moment: He’s trying so hard. Like, he doesn’t understand it himself, he just knows he loves her and he really believes she could love him too.

18. The first “I love you”

Why I love this moment: Well, of course, it’s the first time Spike says “I love you” to Buffy. So that’s huge. Buffy being repulsed by it is hard to watch, but necessary for the story. And Spike is prepared to stake Dru. For someone as twisted as Spike, that is, like, the most romantic thing he could ever do. So, if you think like Spike, this scene is really sweet. And he also draws her. So there’s that.

19. “I’m gonna help.”  

Why I love this moment: Because he wants to help Buffy. Not for credit, either. Because he wants her to be happy. He even tells Dawn not to tell her. This is sort of a big leap for Spike, if you think about it. Like, the tattling on Riley thing was selfish. This was extremely selfless, though. A big step.

20. “I won’t forget it.”

Why I love this moment: This is almost like classical conditioning for Spike. Basically like a “you did good” thing. He was so shocked that Buffy kissed him, and here’s why I think that was: He didn’t expect to get points for doing the right thing by not telling Glory that Dawn was the key. He didn’t do it for points. He just did it because he knew Buffy would be destroyed if she lost her sister. 

21. “Right person, person I loved. I’d do it.”

Why I love this moment: This is just the perfect thing to say, isn’t it? I can’t explain the look she has on her face here, but her reaction to Spike saying he’d do something crazy for her…perfect.

22. “I know you’ll never love me.”

Why I love this moment: It’s not just this moment but the moment Buffy let him back in her house. He’s just glowing. She means so much to him. It means so much that she’d trust him with protecting the most important person in her life. “’Til the end of the world.”

23. Spike loses Buffy

Why I love this moment: He lost the love of his life and it broke him. Badly broke him. The shot of him right before this point, when he first sees Buffy’s body, is so sad. It’s like he’s trying to see anything else but what is in front of his face. How hard he’s crying is just so heartbreaking. I don’t think he even knew how much losing Buffy would kill him.

24. Taking care of Dawn

Why I love this moment: Not a moment, but the whole first two episodes of Season 6. I love it because he didn’t have to look out for Dawn. He could’ve moped or left or literally anything else. But he took care of Dawn because that’s what Buffy would’ve wanted. “’Til the end of the world.”

25. Spike sees Buffy alive

Why I love this moment: Look at his face! Look at how happy he is! He’s in shock but also trying to be gentle because he understands what she’s been through but also trying not to cry. Oh my God, the amount of depth in just his expression is amazing.

26. “How long was I gone?”

Why I love this moment: He counted the days. Counted the days. And, why did she refrain from asking about her death until she was with Spike? Why did seeing him prompt her to ask? Hm.

27. “I think I was in heaven.”

Why I love this moment: She confides in him. To confide in anyone is a huge deal anyway, but especially for these two. And he listens so well. I think it’s so powerful to me because Buffy essentially has to tell Spike because he’s one of the only ones that didn’t help bring her back, and she can’t tell her little sister because it would crush her. But that led to her depending on Spike more and more.

28. The drinking

Why I love this moment: Do you see the way Spike smiles at her?! That is all.

29. Rest in Peace

Why I love this moment: I mean? Because it’s a musical number? Because Spike shouldn’t have to suffer? Because he loves her so much? Because he follows her like a little puppy? Because? James Marsters singing? Because.

30. Walk Through the Fire

Why I love this moment: He doesn’t want to be in pain from loving her, but he loves loving her all the same. He’ll never stop loving her, and he knows it. 

31. The “The End” kiss

Why I love this moment: Finally! I mean, it’s sad because Buffy “just wants to feel,” but overall, it’s a new beginning and it’s great!

32. Randy and Joan

Why I love this moment: Just…now they’ll always be Randy and Joan. 

33. Bringing the house down

Why I love this moment: Well, they did it, duh. And their faces? Buffy’s is more of a “Okay, this is a lot to take in, but God it feels good.” Spike’s is “Wait…is this happening? Oh my God, she’s amazing.”

34. The Aftermath

Why I love this moment: Because it’s classic Season 6 Spuffy. And James is shirtless, but. I just love the interaction between the two of them. Buffy tries not to want him, but she does. Spike is…Spike. It’s a great scene.

35. Flapjack lighter

Why I love this moment: “This flapjack’s not ready to be flipped.” A, what does that mean? B, I get it. Also, the lighter thing? Dude, Buffy wants him. Bad.

36. “Buffy?”

Why I love this moment: The fact that he knows it’s her?! I mean, what ghost would…but still! And James is shirtless…again. A+.

37. “I’m exercising!”

Why I love this moment: Not only the sad excuse for the thrusting, but the fact that Buffy finds it so funny to fuck with Spike. I mean, he looked like he was crazy and all, but Xander should’ve realized. Anyway.

38. “Hey, that’s cheating.”

Why I love this moment: I feel bad for Spike. It’s not fair to him, and frankly it’s kind of insulting that Buffy came to him immediately after she became invisible. It hurt him.

39. “This place’ll kill you.”

Why I love this moment: He seems to care so much about her to do this, but I also think part of it is because he wants her to come into the darkness with him. Nonetheless, I like the scene.

40. “Are we having a conversation?”

Why I love this moment: I mean, them talking at all is improvement. But talking about trivial things like decorating? Good stuff. Although, as usual, Buffy dismissing him makes me sad. 

41. “You belong in the darkness.”

Why I love this moment: Okay, so here’s the thing. I have this scene on the list because it’s an important moment for Buffy because Spike says what she’s been thinking ever since she came back: I don’t belong here anymore. But other than that, I didn’t like this scene. It was out of place. It was too sinister to be Spike. I would’ve liked it better if it was a dream Buffy had or something like that because I don’t think Spike would’ve said those things to Buffy, especially not the way he did. But that’s just me.

42. Telling Tara

Why I love this moment: It’s honestly really sad that Buffy feels this horrible about herself because of what she’s done with Spike. I don’t feel like she has to be that sad, but in combination with coming back from the dead, who can blame her?

43. “It’s over.”

Why I love this moment: Objectively, it’s a really good point in their arc. It had to happen, we all knew that. I’m pleased that Buffy understood that she was using Spike and told him it wasn’t fair to him. But Spike just looked so broken. He would’ve taken her anyway he could, whether he was being used or not.

44. “You glow.”

Why I love this moment: It’s just a nice moment between the two of them. It’s respectful and almost happy. It makes me cry every time I think about the fact that Spike never really saw her happy before this. But it also makes me happy to know how he sees her. And it seems to make Buffy happy, too. Also, considering that she was a little jealous, I think it’s safe to say that she wasn’t just using Spike.

Sidebar: I’m skipping to Season 7 because the attempted rape scene, while a key plot point, doesn’t make my favorites list, for obvious reasons.

45. “Spike?”

Why I love this moment: How sad is it that he thought his soul was the thing tearing him apart inside? I mean, part of it was, but obviously most of it was the First. I also love this moment because you can see that Buffy immediately knows that something is different. That he’s not the man that hurt her.

46. “Why does a man do what he mustn’t for her, to be hers?”

Why I love this moment: You have to appreciate James’s acting in this scene. Oh my God. So this is terribly sad because Buffy realizes that Spike has a soul, that he’s in pain because of it, and that he did it all for her. To be better.

47. “Someday she’ll tell you.”

Why I love this moment: He’s so confused. He doesn’t know what to think. But we know. And we know this statement came true. We know how heartbreaking that was.

48. “Did you kill her?”

Why I love this moment: This conversation is just gold. “As daft a notion as Spike the soulful killer is, it is nothing compared to the thought that another girl could mean anything to me.” Positively beautiful.

49. Never Leave Me

Why I love this moment: Basically, I’m gonna sum up why I love the whole episode (minus a scene I’ll be specific about after this). Buffy is learning to trust Spike again. And Spike is showing so much growth and maturity that it’s almost painful. I love, love, love these two in this episode. A lot of burned bridges are rebuilt.

50. “I believe in you, Spike.”

Why I love this moment: He’s doing that thing where he glows again. He’s so surprised that she could ever, ever even like him again let alone believe in him. And her taking that step is huge for her as well. She’s forgiven him. She believes in him.

51. “She will come for me.”

Why I love this moment: That was what got Spike through the torture. Knowing that the woman he loves believes in him. And his face when Buffy comes for him says it all. He’s so elated. It’s wonderful.

52. “I’m not ready for you to not be here.”

Why I love this moment: Spike starts to realize that Buffy is falling for him for real. And she’s realizing that, too.

Sidebar: I had to skip the scene in Potential where Buffy “attacks” Spike and they end up holding hands when she tries to check his ribs. I LOVE that scene, but I couldn’t find a GIF anywhere.

53. “You’re the one, Buffy.”

Why I love this moment: I don’t need to explain.

54. “Will you just hold me?”

Why I love this moment: Spike didn’t hesitate at all. Not because he wanted to do it for himself, but because he wanted to do it for her. Just to give her peace.

55. “Terrified.”

Why I love this moment: This, all of it. And Buffy was in that moment with him. Huge, huge deal. Beautiful. Lovely.

56. “He is in my heart.”

Why I love this moment: I was just so elated to see that Buffy finally let herself love him. Or at least believe that she could love him. It’s such a transcendent moment.

57. “Angel said it was meant to be worn by a champion.”

Why I love this moment: God, how do I say it? They so obviously love and trust each other. It’s so beautiful to see the growth they’ve both gone through to get to this point. Amazing.

58. One last embrace

Why I love this moment: This last night they had together…wow. I can’t put it into words. It just fills me with light and warmth. I love it.

59. The final “I love you” and a sad goodbye

Why I love this moment: Because I know Buffy loves him. He may not believe it, but she does. And it makes everything in their past that much more powerful. It is a heartbreaking final moment, both in a sad and in a happy way. Such a beautiful love story.

60. “Spike.”

Why I love this moment: Buffy’s last word in the series was “Spike.” It just seems so appropriate, doesn’t it? He saved the world, he saved the girl, they saved each other, and they loved each other. Until the very end.

“‘Til the end of the world.”

anonymous asked:

okay but what if barba accidentally kisses sonny. it was late, barba was tired and sonny was adorably talking about something that's going on in his family so barba couldn't help a little smooch

“A little smooch”, omg.

Sonny just about dies the moment that Rafael’s lips touch his. 

He’s all, “Uhh, counselor? Are you - ?”

And Rafael admits, “Yes, I’m tired, but you’re adorable when you go on about things Carisi, so I finally decided to give in and kiss you like I’ve been wanting to for quite some time now.”

Sonny blushes, asks shyly, “Can I give you a kiss, then, counselor?”

Rafael smiles, nods, pulling Sonny closer by the back of his neck as Sonny’s lips brush against his.

Little Leaf Sheep Nudibranch Grazes Adorably Underwater

This is going to shock you, but the creature you’re looking at is a sea slug, or nudibranch. That being said, how much does this thing look like a little undersea sheep made out of seaweed? I have dubbed thee a leaf sheep. Formally, these nudibranchs are called Costasiella kuroshimae. The little leaf sheep is only a few millimeters in length and feeds on the green algae,Avrainvillea. It even grazes like a real sheep!! This species is named after Kuro Island, in the Yaeyama Islands, of Japan where it was first found… andddd that’s about all the information there is on it.

There needs to be a leaf sheep expedition ASAP because I’m dying to learn more about these adorable miniature sea animals! Plus, can we all just take a moment and recognize how cute its little black wonky eyes are in the middle of its face?

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how fucking adorable Jack is

Just look at him

aw he messed up taking off his sweater 

dork

yeah you go jack you cute little shit

boottaaayyyy

and his laugh is so cute

i dont even know what the fuck hes doing here but hes still fucking adorable

cute little shit   remember the hat phase? 

aw hes so adorable

did i mention his laugh?

hes still a little kid

\

in conclusion

thank god for Barakat

Okay but I actually adore this so much so let’s just analyze every fuckin’ frame.  

1. Phil’s subconscious little head duck along Dan’s jawline, like he’s memorized exactly how they fit together
2. Dan dipping his chin down along Phil’s neck because it’s so natural to be close to him.
3. Dan briefly glances down at Phil’s head and suddenly realizes they are indeed filming this. 
4. Phil’s slight hesitance to move from against Dan even though Dan backs up.

Someone hold me I can’t with these two.

should I do more early phan moments?

cute but subtle ways to dress little!
  • PATTERNED SOCKS!! Whether they’re cute animals, or little drawings, or just pretty colours, they’re bound to make you feel little! No-one will notice them unless you pull them up high.
  • Overalls! Wear them over t shirts, sweaters, anything! They’re actually pretty fashionable at the moment, and they work for all genders :)
  • Headbands and bows! I’m in love with headbands right now - I have a collection of adorable headbands, some of them are plain, but some have little bows and flowers, 10/10 would recommend. Also, hair clips and barrettes are awesome!
  • Ribbons! You could tie them into your hair, around your braids or ponytails, or even into your braids - it looks super cool! And there are bAJILLIONS of colours and designs, you can get them from dollarama for basically no money! 
  • Some more things you can do with ribbons: tie them around your wrist to make a cute bracelet! You can also replace your shoelaces with your favourite ribbons to spice them up a little.
  • LOTS OF COLOURS! Just mix and match, throw in the entire rainbow into your outfit if you wanna!
  • Hairstyles: if you have long hair, you can try out fun things like pigtails and braids!
  • If you shop online or go to places like gap kids, you can find kiddie clothes that are big enough to fit you! You can find things like cuddly shirts or sweaters with bright colours and cute drawings, or character t-shirts, and it’ll just look cute, not necessarily kiddy!
  • Cute little accessories! For example, I have some cute ear muffs for the winter that are super fluffy and have little panda bear faces on them! You can get gloves and earbuds like this too!
  • Funky tights! i have some rainbow striped ones that i always wear with skirts and it makes me feel super little! You can get ones with patters and stars and hearts and designs that look amazing! You can also do this with leggings.
  • Sparkly nail polish! 
  • Heelies or light up sneakers, if you wanna!
  • Do you remember sillybands? Well you can still get them online for barely any money, and they look so cute! When you’re wearing them, they just look like colourful elastic bands, so it’s not super obvious
  • if you’re carrying a bag with you, decorate it with stickers and buttons and keychains! You can make it all pretty and jingly :)

I hope you find these helpful!! I’ll be posting similar posts this week :)

can we please appreciate this adorable john & paul moment please?; they began playing ‘this boy’ and the first line goes “that boy took my love away” but  john mistakenly sang “this boy took my love away”, paul noticed and they both gave that little “yeah i know” glare at each other (’: idk i just think this is precious. bye.

So I have an absolute FAVOURITE little tiny detail from Baby that I have seen absolutely no one mention yet.

Its right when Dean starts playing Night Moves and the first lyric comes up. 

‘Was a little too tall / could’ve used a few pounds’ 

And then he points to Sam in this adorable little way.  “Bro, you’re tall and skinny, man.” But he’s got this cute little affectionate grin on his face like he adores that about Sam.  How Sam is a little too tall, and thinner than he had been a few years ago.  Like he realizes the song fits even after he starts it.  Its so cute.  And Sam’s little smirk, and shake of his head while he’s sexily buttoning up his rumpled shirt. 

Its just the cutest little moment, and I’ve seen no one mention the lyrics here and Dean’s point at Sam.

==> Remem8er.

Been wanting to do a little papercraft of this panel because god this scene hits me hard.  There’s just something so kind about the moment. Scene is from the [S] Terezi: Remem8er flash, but I believe the specific artist is Ikimaru, whose work I always adore, and who utterly rocked my world with that flash in particular.

Annnnnnd, I couldn’t find the vellum I wanted for the wings at any of the local stores so I had to wait a week while I ordered a single sheet of paper online. which was entirely worth it gosh i’m happy with how this came out

PGSM Tribute 1/?: Miracle Romance
