I-will-be-your-father-figure

  • Peter: Hey, Tony, my suit got messed up in a fire.
  • Tony: I'll fix it for you, don't worry about it.
  • Peter: Cool. Thanks dad. ...... Why is everyone starring at me?
  • Natasha: You just called Tony Stark dad. You said 'Thanks dad.'
  • Peter: What? No I didn't, I said thanks 'man'.
  • Tony: Do you see me as a father figure, Peter?
  • Peter: No, if anything I see you as a bother figure, cause your always bothering me.
  • Rhodes: Hey, show your father some respect.
  • Peter: I didn't call him dad!

what exactly is keeping weiss at the schnee mansion. Now I know what you’re thinking “Janelle you cant “just leave” your parents! Especially not abusive ones!” and normally I”d 100% agree but Weiss has ALREADY flipped her father off figuratively and left his grip to attend beacon. She’s already past the point in her own personal narrative where she was actively confined by her father. She passed that weird “test” (as the manga calls it) and was living mostly independently with the only Dad based input help being in the form of her allowance. 

It’s been one full school year (the festival canonically takes place at the end of the year) plus a 6-8 month time skip, meaning Weiss is nearly 19 years old and already an adult (hell tai yang refers to yang as an adult and Yang and weiss are the same age so) meaning he can’t legally keep her in the mansion, she’s not a minor.

He was mean to her I guess but I’m sure he was mean to her for her whole life and she still left the first time so he’s clearly not doing anything to keep her trapped from an emotional standpoint, and she’s the only one who came out of the vytal festival with something positive happening to her (further mastery of her semblance) so nothing that happened there would have crushed her to the point of timid compliance.

Winter knows their father is a shit bag and she’s on good terms with Weiss so why can’t Weiss go live with her? Hell I’m sure Ironwood would set something up if she explained the situation? Would Klein not help her leave if she wanted?

Like Weiss’ first and only friends in the world have been crippled, traumatized, killed and are separated on three different continents why on earth is the narrative playing up this trapped princess and having weiss sit in her room and be sad for over half a year instead of leaving on her own resolve to go help her friends. She’s already told her father to fuck off on her own will power and resolve alone she has NO REASON TO SIT AROUND DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING INSTEAD OF LEAVING TO HELP HER FRIENDS, IT’S BORDERLINE OOC.

I don’t hate him. I loved him until I figured out it hurts a lot less to just not care. You don’t expect him to turn up to your football match? No disappointments. You don’t expect a call on your birthday, don’t expect to see him for months? No disappointments. You want us to go make up? Sink a few beers together, nice family hug? I’ve given him enough hugs. He’s given me enough disappointments.

jason: do u see me as a father figure, nico??
nico: i see you as a BOTHER figure ‘cause yOU’RE ALWAYS BOTHERING ME

this is honestly the dumbest thing i’ve ever doodled

“Then, your lover, I guess.”

This scene was incredibly significant.

I’m sure we all know that, but seriously. Victor asks Yuuri, “What do you want me to be to you?” 

He starts by asking, “A father figure?” Yuuri says no, because that’s not it. He continues, “A brother? A friend?” to which Yuuri hums apprehensively. Closer, but not quite it.

“Then, your lover, I guess. I can try my best.”

The way Victor said it wasn’t teasing, joking, or fake. I’m sure most of you have seen other anime, and you know what it sounds like when a character gets a shit-eating grin on their face, leans over and hugs the other character, ruffles their hair, and laughs at their flustered reaction. 

That was not how Victor acted.

He said this statement so simply, with a slight flirt to his tone- enough to make Yuuri jump and become flustered at the thought. He responds ‘no’ a bunch of times, but that’s not because he doesn’t want Victor as a lover. It’s just too soon to establish that, of course. 

But the thought surely settles nicely with Yuuri. There’s plenty of evidence for that, but in particular the way he is flushed afterwards, and how he says he wants Victor to stay who he is.

And then of course, in time, they can achieve that label of ‘lovers.’ 

This is a pivotal moment. Yuuri and Victor’s attraction to one another was openly addressed and bluntly stated. And what’s more, it was a huge indicator that yes, this is a relationship buildup. 

I know people are skeptical to get their hopes up in fear of disappointment, but I am taking that risk. This seems legitimate from a logical standpoint, but most of all, it feels legitimate.

Victor and Yuuri’s romantic relationship is building. 

That much is obvious from episode 4. 

Oh, God, I’m a cliché,” he said in despair. “Why do I care? If Dad decides he hates me because I’m not straight, he’s not worth the pain, right?”
“Don’t look at me,” said Jace. “My adoptive father was a mass murderer. And I still worried about what he thought. It’s what we’re programmed to do. Your dad always seemed pretty great by comparison.”
“Sure, he likes you,” said Alec. “You’re heterosexual and have low expectations of father figures.”
“I think they’ll probably put that on my gravestone. ‘He Was Heterosexual and Had Low Expectations.’

Pre-Reaper Reyes being a good person who cares about his people and is a brother(/possibly father) figure to young Jesse is SO important to me, particularly because it’s pretty damn clear that Blackwatch did all the dirty work Overwatch didn’t want to be associated with. And let me tell you how bored I am by the concept that in order to be willing to get your hands dirty you must be a fundamentally horrible person.

Gabriel Reyes was a good man, given a shit job he didn’t want, running black ops that the UN and Overwatch were too pretty and pristine to be associated with - and he got shit done.

If nothing else, he and Blackwatch at the very least extended a hand to a lost, probably angry seventeen-year-old kid with a talent for killing who would have gone to maximum security and come out a hardened monster and gave him the chance, instead, to be a hero. To do something good and real in the world.

So sure, I guess, make Reyes a monster all you want, I just think that’s boring as hell.

  • Remus: Why do I care? If Dad decides he hates me because I’m a werewolf, he’s not worth the pain, right?
  • Sirius: Don’t look at me. My father is practically a Death Eater. And I’m still worried about what he thinks. It’s what we’re programmed to do. Your dad always seemed pretty great by comparison.
  • Remus: Sure, he likes you. You’re not a werewolf and have low expectations of father figures.
  • Sirius: I think they’ll probably put that on my gravestone. ‘He Was Not a Werewolf and Had Low Expectations.'

idea: villain with illusion powers tries to pull the whole “actually bruce wayne’s parents never died and that other life was all a dream ps as long as you’re here write down all your passwords and write a huge check to this guy your parents say is your friend” thing but is unsuccessful because it is basically impossible to impersonate bruce’s parents

“when did you figure it out?? >:[”

“i’ve known this was fake from the start, this woman looks nothing like my mother. red lipstick with nude polish?? that dress doesn’t suit her coloring. i said i was deliberately leading vicki on and she didn’t try to ground me, just because i’m a grown man. that’s not how my mother pronounces the word yeti. and this guy! he’s not tall enough to be my father. he hasn’t tried to pick me up even once. and neither of these people has had an uncomfortably flirtatious conversation with the butler in the last six hours. you fool. you imbecile. how could you possibly have thought that this would work.”

To whom it may concern, 

In the nearly 10 years that I have known Luke Danes, I have come to know him as an honest and decent man. He’s also one of the most kind and caring persons I have ever met. I’m a single mother, and I raised my daughter by myself, but once Luke Danes became my friend in this town, I never really felt alone. Luke and I have had our ups and downs over the years, but through it all, his relationship with my daughter, Rory, has never changed. He’s always been there for her no matter what. He was there to celebrate her birthdays. He was there cheering her on at her high school graduation. Luke has been a sort of father figure in my daughter’s life. With his own daughter, Luke wasn’t given the opportunity to be there for her first 12 years, but he should be given that opportunity now. Once Luke Danes is in your life, he is in your life forever. I know from personal experience what an amazing gift that is, and not to allow him access to his daughter would be to seriously deprive her of all this man has to offer, and he offers so much. Thank you for your time. 

Sincerely, Lorelai Gilmore

Arya Stark & Jon Snow in every season finale. [hbd amanda!]

“They had always been close. Jon had their father’s face, as she did. They were the only ones. When Arya had been little, she had been afraid that meant that she was a bastard too. It had been Jon she had gone to in her fear, and Jon who had reassured her.” - Arya I: A Game of Thrones.
