I-still-don't-understand-tags

I had a stray thought about last night’s Olicity moment that I will try to present without a rant. :) I have seen some fair arguments about different aspects of a certain storyline that are worth considering, so… Reluctant acceptance. (I will say that I think there’s sometimes a difference between critiquing a character’s actions within the storyline they were given and critiquing the storyline itself, so explaining/defending one doesn’t always resolve the other, but it’s complicated, for sure.)

Anyway, I think it should have been Felicity who wanted to move up the marriage (as much as I love how thirsty Oliver is). Her dad brings up her old insecurities, she’s not sure if she did the right thing, and Oliver is more supportive and *there* than ever - so she asks him to marry her. She wants this new family with him. Now. And even brings up how quiet things are at the moment, how often does that happen? 

Oliver can’t say no (and doesn’t want to) - but next ep the guilt sets in. And then… 

Maybe there’s an obvious character element I’m missing that wouldn’t work with this (though this is the girl who chased him down at a public party for answers and basically proposed in a cage). Maybe they’re saving a Felicity proposal for after… Maybe there’s another story they’re setting up here that I don’t know.

But it just felt a little… off to me, I guess, in the midst of said storyline. Unlike the proposal that Felicity moved him towards (by reassuring her answer and questioning any desire to wait), this felt like more of a wrong (and slightly random) move to me. I guess this is the man who thought he could be a vigilante and his family would never know (and he’s clearly compartmentalizing here to the extreme),  but I can’t help wondering what he thinks is going to happen? This kid is for *life*, so… Okay, no rant, because I still love poor, flawed Oliver (and I agree Felicity wouldn’t want him to neglect his son), so this isn’t about bashing him. This is the way the writers chose to go. Okay. 

I just would have enjoyed that (cute and delightful) scene a little more this other way. Alas, I don’t think they make this show just for me. ;D

So recently I’ve been feeling kind of in the gutter, schools stressful and im being forced to make my life plans at the age of 16 where I don’t even know what colour socks I should wear for the day but mini appreciation post to Kyle for being there for me and being adorable and stuff and spending the entire day with me on my birthday and visiting me after school because I’ve had the past few days off ^~^ ✨💕🌺 @pvgaka01revlis (Also have kawaii sonic)

My sister genuinely believes that I’m a psychopathic murderer. I was moving some shit around when she came in asking what I was doing so without turning around or hesitating, I said, “Planning your murder.” I heard her run away and not even five minutes later came back with my mom looking absolutely terrified while my mom was just confused but slightly wary. My sister had told my mom that I had planted a bomb of some sort in my room and was going to blow up the house. She was absolutely convinced that I had set up some sort of explosion near my desk and that I had a lighter ready to create some giant fireworks.

Silly sister, the bomb is in her room. Maybe.

anyone else ever, like. take their laptop into the bathroom with them while they’re going so you can work on your drafts? and then like. not want to put the laptop down on the floor while you have any tabs open that have anything with your muse’s icons on them? because you don’t want your muse to see your shame? or is that just me?

Re-uploads for a very dear friend from a while ago.

Why would you ship Clara with a technical teenager when you could be shipping her with so many wonderful women her own age? Just think it through.

2016 is a bit shit

I haven’t got anywhere else to rant really so I guess I’m doing it here.

Leading up to 2016, I needed a root canal. Whole lotta pain while I was waiting for a dentist appointment. Figured hey, at least next year it might be less shit, right?

Got back to uni on the 2nd. Everything was going well. A few days in I decided to go to the local Tesco a bit on the late side, since it shut at midnight. Turns out they changed their closing times from 12am to 11pm. Was a bit shitty, but whatever nbd I can deal.

Now I’m a first year in uni, 260 miles away from my house, so now’s about the time for me to look for living arrangements for next year. If you’ve ever met me, you know that I’m fucking terrible around people, so I only had one roommate choice really, but he’s sound. We start looking at 2 bed flats but there’s dick all. Speak to the building manager about staying here next year, she’s like yeah I’ll put you down to stay. Cool, sorted.

Turns out it ain’t sorted, and without anybody telling anyone, the building management was sold to the uni, who are making it a first years only place. We still haven’t officially been told this, we had to hear about it from the union president on their blog.

Now for at least like, half of the people in the building, who were guaranteed when we moved in that we could stay next year if we wanted, are gonna be thrown out. And everyone’s already found living arrangements, leaving us with nobody to move in with and nowhere to live anyway for the most part.
Still no word from the uni or building about it though.

But for real Tesco why you shut at 11 now that’s fuckin annoying man
