a fishing we will go

anonymous asked:

how did you and lovecraft start dating?

I’m so glad someone finally asked this because it’s quite a funny story.  I was attempting to relax one afternoon by going fishing far, far away from my coworkers when something incredibly heavy caught my line.  I struggled to reel in what I thought would be a rather impressive fish – nearly capsizing my fishing boat twice in the process, I might add – when suddenly I’m face to face with Howard.  I will admit I screamed.  At first, we bickered because I was still agitated about my run-ins with the Guild and he was agitated that I woke him.  After a while of sitting on the fishing boat together and talking, I realized that perhaps we had a lot more chemistry than I initially expected, and so I asked him on a date.  We still go fishing together sometimes.

“I water my lawn every morning and birds come to get worms out of the wet ground. If I ever miss a day, the ground will be too hard, and the birds will sit in the yard and call out because their babies are hungry. That’s how I’ve felt my whole life. Like a bird calling out for food. Thirty years ago I went on strike in this same square. We weren’t getting paychecks. There was no money for bills or food. At the time my sons were one, eight, and nine. So we decided to go camping. I’d go fishing on the lake every night and catch two trout. That was enough to feed the four of us. We did it out of necessity but it was beautiful. My sons are in their thirties now. All of them have flown away. But they remember those times with happiness.”

I’m so glad we can finally put to rest the whole “Pidge doesn’t actually like being around Lance/is only annoyed by his presence/is a bully to him” trope.  Because those two were ride or die in season two.  Pidge chose Lance to be her designated sift-through-this-fountain-barefoot-with-me friend. She grabbed his sleeve and was like “This way, Slender Man, we’re going fishing”. Don’t ignore this friendship @Voltron Fandom.

Game night

*slytherins are gathered in their common room trying to figure out what game to play.*
2nd year: “what about uno?”
Other 2nd year: “dude we played that last week”
3rd year: “Well what about Go fish?”
4th year: “What are we? Children? No let’s play Battleship ”
2nd year: “Oh and Go fish is a child’s game.”
1st year: *quietly from the edge of the couch* “what about Monopoly?”
Litterally the entire house: “NO!”
*1st year falls off the couch backward*
Other 1st year: “Wait why not? What’s wrong with monop-”
Prefect: “Don’t say it’s name…. we don’t talk about ‘the game that shall not be named’”
*house falls silent*
6th year: “So many friendships torn apart. So much violence.” *starts crying*
Yet another 1st year: “What the fuck is going on?”

“Simple as that,” said Nina. “Did you know I’m next in line for the Fjerdan throne? They call me Princess Ilse of Engelsberg.” “There is no princess of Engelsberg,” said Matthias. “It’s a fishing town.” Nina shrugged. “If we’re going to lie to ourselves, we might as well be grand about it.”

So I'm rewatching s4 right now and I am a bit confused now. We learned in s12 that Lucifer created the princes of hell after Lilith. So the hirachy is basically this: Black eyed demons as the food soldiers red eyed demons who handle the crossroadsdeals, yellow eyed demons as the generals of hell and then Lilith? white eyed demons. Now Alistair is a white eyed demon too and he knew some crazy stuff like exorcisms for amgels. So how does this all fit in Ivm so confused.

I think the answer is that they’ve been winging it the entire time with lore - I think the early seasons changes to lore also made little holes because I remember finding some of the early big changes like Lilith or Alastair showing up, or Azazel’s plan being retconned into being all about finding one kid instead of raising an army (or, of course, the boy king plot disappearing into being just confused demon rumours which kind of makes it all work once you know Lucifer better, like, say, after 5x04 or 5x10…) or or or wtf was Meg up to and was she and that other demon REALLY Azazel’s children or was that an exaggeration, and how much of his plan did she KNOW and -

(And also wtf is a King of the Crossroads and was he or Lilith in charge of the deals and were they really lovers or was that a weird embellishment from Becky, and how comes he got the Colt THEN but did Lilith even really hold the deal or was it just assumed Crowley would give it to her but it doesn’t matter because he didn’t EXIST for two more seasons and all the time the crossroads demons obliquely mention their boss it’s probably supposed to be Lilith in season 3 and now you’d think it’s Crowley if you watched the show backwards…)

Yeah, I’ve been struggling with this since like, season 3, so at this point they could just be like “and here’s a whole bunch of peers from the Demon House of Lords” and I’ll be like okay then I guess that’s a thing what sort of nonsense are they getting up to then?

(And yeah I know there’s answers to most of those questions and ways to rationalise them or later context that makes it all make sense and as the years have gone by I’m now at peace with all these weird changes to canon like the fact Sam’s powers were basically just a silly side effect of being groomed to be Lucifer’s vessel or Crowley somehow accidentally-deliberately ended up ruling Hell because literally no demon no matter how late they were retconned into the story, felt like bothering with it even if they had to time travel through a closet to answer the question of why they had never tried before or retire to fish or keep bees or whatever it’ll turn out Dagon was spending her time on while avoiding getting involved in something as dramatic as the apocalypse…)

(Or maybe she or the other surviving Prince of Hell DID but behind the scenes in such a way that they were never hauled out into the Winchesters’ path, but were busy doing things like breaking seals and stuff in all the nonsense that happened way way off screen because it would be too much money to show it…)

Anyway for what it’s worth your impression of the hierarchy seems as good as any. Hell seems to produce a lot of grunts and low-quality demons. The ones with the special spark either made too much of a name for themselves and got killed (same as how Heaven now literally seems to be quiet because all named personalities with the inclination to try and rule it have been killed off, and I think Joshua is basically the only angel LEFT up there with a name and personality :P)… I think the smart demons end up in the crossroads business and the red eyes probably show their extra powers which I assume get burned into them one way or another… That department is responsible for restocking Hell faster than it would fill up naturally with the run of the mill sinners (though stuff like Jeffrey’s demon is a bit ambiguous about if he was picking up pre-booked for Hell serial killer types and just egging them on a bit to cause the most mayhem on Earth before they go to Hell, which they probably would have regardless…) and that’s a very separate division. Admin and bureaucracy, and Crowley runs Hell like a business crossed with a medieval court, a great combination of King of the Crossroads/Hell and his salesman style elevated to CEO of Hell Inc. 

I think Crowley crossed lines, anyway, by becoming King of Hell because it seems like power used to be all in the military types - Lilith led Hell into war in season 4, and Lucifer basically picked up where she left off. If you assume she’d been in charge the whole time before that as the highest ranking/oldest demon, it would make sense, although in season 3 it’s implied she’s on the rise, so it’s not like ALL the demons recognised this, although how much of that is like the angel fall and personal ego trips (but without the emotional hook from Cas to make it upsetting they’re infighting, and they are happy to be there unlike the angels) making random factions happen, idk… By season 4 anyway the leadership was clear since it was a choice between Sam and Lilith for the demons, and in season 3 early on the demons realised Sam had no intention of leading them like he was supposed to.

I think Alastair is equivalent to Crowley, running his department of Hell (the crossroads deals feed into his torture chamber) and I’m guessing since Crowley came late to the game, only in the last couple of hundred years, he had to Crowley his way up to the top of the crossroads hierarchy, but Alastair was clearly an old demon, probably turned either by Lucifer directly or by Lilith (which is why his eyes were like hers)… 

Cain seems like quite a personal thing for why Lucifer turned him, and we don’t know the timeline on if he made the princes of hell before or after, but the knights of hell are definitely lower on the order… If Cain ever fitted well into the Hell hierarchy, he’d have been in charge of the armies, while the princes would probably have been responsible for everything although all of them except Azazel retired to beekeeping/fishing lives before the story starts, meaning we never see Hell fully functioning. It’s probably been in shambles for hundreds of years - Crowley probably went to Hell ~1700 and Cain defected some time in the 1800s; if you give Crowley 100 years to become demonised, he shows up about the time we know for sure the leadership in Hell is crumbling. Colt and the Hellgates thing whatever was going on there (and what happened to Cold Oak, South Dakota, because that’s serious demon nonsense and probably concurrent) happened just two years before Cain fucked off to keep bees and probably WHILE he was massacring the Knights of Hell depending on how long that took him and when he met Colette and all the stuff that was going on with him. I’m guessing there’s an unexplored story there which maybe even the writers haven’t noticed while flinging random dates for reasons significant only to their episodes (but who knows, it IS Robbie Thompson putting the keystone in, as it were) but anyway, Hell has been in a Bad Way for at least 200 years if not many centuries. The Croatoan episode suggests they were testing the virus back in the 1500s and that never amounted to anything, which means they failed to kickstart the apocalypse five hundred years ago and who knows what damage that did to morale…

Anyway I think Hell is a mess, canon is a mess, and it’s pretty much impossible to work out what all these demons are and how they’re related because they make it up a bit each time they introduce new ones depending on what sounds cool, leading to a “just say yeah when they introduce new canon” kind of response I now have to anything about demons on this show >.>

Summary:  It was the sushi. She was sure of it. Just some bad sushi. But she knew she’d better check with the doctor, just in case.

Notes: Morning sickness mentioned in non-graphic detail, but take caution anyway.  I love these two.  I need more of them!

“Ma chérie?” Bob heard the groaning, and poked his head round the corner to find Alicia bent over the bathroom sink, pressing a wet flannel to the back of her neck. She seemed a bit green, and a bit angry looking with her narrowed blue eyes, and furrowed brows. “Again?”

“I swear it was that sushi,” she said, glowering at him as though he had personally gone into the kitchen and requested the chef serve his girlfriend tainted fish. “We are never going there again.”

Sushi Sunday you have truly been missed😌 tried out something new today by making chickpea ‘tuna’ & cucumber sushi, as well as the classic rainbow veg👌🏼👌🏼 so so tasty, wholesome and best of all a cruelty-free + sustainable alternative to fish💛
DID YOU KNOW if we keep going at the rate we are now, our oceans are expected to be empty by 2048? I know for sure that I don’t want to live in a world with no fish in the sea. Our food choices affect SO much more than just ourselves🌿🌏🐠
P.S. The recipe for this deliciousness is coming soon to you real soon!

It’s not about the cases (and Mary became a case back in HLV). It’s a story about a detective.

It doesn’t matter if/how Mary was shot. Norbury doesn’t matter. All this spy stuff doesn’t matter. Mary’s past doesn’t matter.

They gave us a puzzle and now watch us dance.

But it’s not important!

It’s just clouding our vision - like red herrings (well, all those fish…), throwing dust into our eyes (remember Moriarty in TAB?). We are going blind like Sherlock is.

The only thing that matters in this episode is the story Sherlock tells us at the beginning - the Samara story.

Even as Sherlock wrote a fix-it as a child, he knows you can’t run from your destiny. He will end up at Samara no matter what.

So he sends himself there via Mary - go to hell!

Face your fears, your destiny - there’s no other way for Sherlock’s story to complete itself (great man to good). Peferably not by meeting death again. If Samara is Sherlock’s destiny, his hell, he has to face all the sectrets, lies, memories and trauma he suppressed. That is his Samara.
