That would have sounded better

  • “Graham Nolan, you were named for a guy your sister had a thing with but at least we picked the one who saved her mother’s life and believed in her and got her a job instead of knocking her up and sending her to jail”
  • “Killian Nolan, you were named for your sister’s boyfriend which yes is kind of weird but at least we picked the one who’s always been there for her and saved our lives and he’s also Captain Hook which let’s face it is pretty cool”
  • “James Nolan, you were named for my brother who was kind of a jerk but at least he never hurt your sister”
  • “Leo Nolan, you were named for your grandfather whose choice in second wife was a bit questionable and whose treatment of said wife was also a bit questionable but at least he never hurt your sister”
  • “Leroy Nolan, you were named after a dwarf but hey it’s a cool name and he’s a cool guy who actually helped us a lot and never hurt your sister”
  • “Charles Nolan, you were named after a guy I met once long ago who convinced me not to give up on love and who also inadvertently helped save your sister from a dungeon and from never existing”
  • “Jake Nolan, you were named after no one in particular because we figured that just like your sister you ought to have your own name without any weird baggage or references to someone who hurt your sister”
  • “Luke Nolan, you were named after Luke Skywalker in Star Wars because he’s awesome and also your sister pretended to be Princess Leia one time and my little geeky heart exploded with feels but don’t tell your mother because she just thought that it’s a nice name”
  • “David Nolan Jr, you were named after me because let’s face it I’m pretty awesome”
words that would have been better than ‘no maj’
  • NMUs (Non Magic Users) sounds like official jargon and it rhymes w pee-yew so magic children can make up mean rhymes with it
  • amagical - ok this sounds dumb but still technical bc greek prefix!
  • sinkers - from the ‘witch test’ of the early trials where a potential witch would be tossed into a lake and if they floated they were witches, if they sank they were not. boom! historical context, grim reminder of the grisly conflict between magical & non magical people, rolls off the tongue
  • unmarked/nonmarked - again from the witch trials, where they could look for a ‘devil’s mark’ as evidence
  • burners/smokers/lighters - anything else that references witch burnings
  • like c’mon that was some formative shit and since the american wizarding community is so Oo Secrety they would prob remember the risks of revealing themselves in little bits of everyday language
  • literally any nonsense
  • beans
  • goose eggs
  • merps
  • jalopy - fits w fantastic beasts time period, is magical ppl making fun of nonmagical people for their stupid inventions
  • bluenose - means a ‘priggish or puritanical person’
  • they could do a whole series of nicknaming non magic peeps after their dumb inventions - automobile, telephone, rubber duck - and their inventors and general laborers - plumber, mechanic, whatever. they just assume that every non magic person is a plumber or something. ‘he’s, you know, a plumber’ ‘ah’ but they don’t actually know what plumbers even do
  • im bored now but no-maj is stupid

I’m so impressed by the fact that Taylor didn’t decide to perform any of the songs on the setlist exactly the way they sounded. She added so many extra beats and vocals and I’m so blown away by how effortlessly she was able to pull all of it off I never would have thought that these songs could sound any better than they already did but she did it! I love how different and fresh all the songs sound despite the fact that I’ve been listening to them for almost 7 months now. I love that Taylor put a twist on them and completely changed the way they’ve sounded. I can’t wait to see this show live. Hands down the best tour yet!

alternate ian x mickey endings that’d have been way more satisfying
  • ian says i love you back and invites mickey in the house. he actually remembers that he accepted to take his meds because otherwise he’s a danger to himself and those he loves. when fiona and the rest arrive they find them in a very tight lip-lock on the couch. they don’t even pay attention to the gallaghers/vee they are so lost in each other. fin
  • ian says all the awful things he said but when sammi comes shooting at mickey, he grabs mickey by his hoodie and drags him inside the house where they hole up until sammi is gone. they make out soon as ian apologizes for being such an insensitive prick. fin
  • (no sammi) ian says all the awful things he said but has a sudden epiphany when he watches mickey walk away. he chases after him but he hurt mickey so bad that mick just can’t forgive him immediately. THERE ARE TEARS from both sides. then they really work on their relationship for the next ~two weeks with mickey withholding any affectionate gesture (all shown as a successive collage of scenes with ian repetitively doing nice stuff for mickey and reminding him that he loves him) until ian feels like he has grovelled enough and ends up attack kissing him. fin
  • when ian mock-asks if mickey wants to marry him, mick reveals that he actually filed the divorce papers w/ svet while ian was gone and ‘so what’s it gonna be, ian?’ and ian, unsure, asks if mick really wants to deal with how fucked up ian thinks he is and mickey just exhales a big, passionate, bordering-on-angry ‘YES’ that makes ian chuckle and bury his face in mick’s neck before murmuring ‘yeah okay’. fin
  • when sammi starts shooting ian suddenly whips out a bazooka and aims it at her shocked face. ‘i been waiting to do this for a long time, you bitch’. [explosions] [ian and mickey walking down the street holding hands and sharing lovey-dovey looks with the explosions still going off behind them] fin
  • mickey: ‘really? but… i’m carrying your child’ ian: (ʘᗩʘ’)?????? fin

quick no time to explain we have to go on a two month long road trip and ignore our responsibilities as young adults in favour of taking hipster-like pictures and going to over populated tourist attractions unironically 


castle/agents of shield au In January 1999, Agent Johanna Beckett was murdered by Hydra. Her daughter, Kate Beckett swore vengeance against the organization at only age nineteen and swore to do whatever she could to avenge her mother’s murder. That meant becoming one of S.H.I.E.L.D’s youngest recruits and eventually one of their best. It took several years of intense training, but when the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D came and an ex-agent was found to be working for Hydra all along, she saw her way into the organization and decided to bring it down. Born to two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, it was hard for Kate Beckett to turn over everything she had ever believed in, every rule she’d chosen to live by, but she did it without blinking. She had a personal vendetta to deal with when it came to Hydra’s leader, William Bracken, the man who took her mother’s life fifteen years before. She didn’t mind playing for the other team as long as it ended with Bracken’s body six feet under.

Happy Birthday, Percy! 

You’re one brave goofball and we’re all proud of you for growing up and staying safe and strong.

We had to do something that Friday night [when “The Five Doctors” aired]. I was devastated. I thought I was going to pass out.

And now… kiss!

People would say “I’m single.”, but well, to me, that sounds rather mean. It sounds like they were trying to say “I’m alone.” or “I have nobody to love.” That’s not true because I have my friends, I have my family, I have my music. I would rather say “I’m free.” It sounds better.

I’m all for Lavi’s current situation, but I’d love to see it progress somewhere. It has been canonically pretty long since he was last shown, and we have only been given Lucia’s cryptic words to go by.


JSAMN Character-a-Day Week  → 14th September: Emma Wintertowne

“She advised me last week that the Government ought not to send money and troops to the King of Sweden – which is what we have decided – but instead to lend our support to the Governments of Portugal and Spain and make these countries the bases of our operations against Buonaparte. At nineteen, to have thought so deeply upon all manner of things and to have come to so many conclusions about them! At nineteen, to contradict all the Government so boldly! Of course I told her that she ought to be in Parliament!“
