a man did not think this through

You know I just love this woman.

She hasn’t even met the man for more than a couple hours but she has already given him a loving nickname, like he’s part of the family.

She cooks for him.

Also she made it EXTRA-LARGE, I’m sure not everybody gets that special treatment.

“An extra-large for the handsome russian boy.”

And just look how delighted she gets when Victor praises her food. She’s just the perfect mother in law.

And never forget this.

She looks so proud, so pleased, and you know most parents want their kids to find someone who’ll take care of them the same way they did, because their kids are their treasures, they are what they consider most precious in their lifes. And she knows her son has finally found the one, he has finally got to meet the man who’ll treasure him above everything, and I think she knew it since Victor walk through their door… You know, how moms have this sixth sense about people, and more when it involves friends or lovers.

That smile, she’s a proud mom, and she knows his son now has someone who will be sure to hold him up even in the hardest of times.

Now imagine them both coming back to Hasetsu after the grand prix… and having to explain the rings, their engagement, and the future date for their wedding. Imagine her joy. Imagine her with her future grandchildren, I don’t know I just love her too dam much.

Bonus:

“An ecstatic smol mom, skipping after listening to his future son in law praise her cooking skills.”

That’s definitely not the first thing that should have come to mind, Kuroo

(tho it looks like no one really minds

aside from bokuto that is)

Things that Irene has probably texted Sherlock:

  • Nice to know that you’re not dead #confirmed
  • You literally died for John Watson and you’re letting his fiance get in your way?
  • I thought you were braver than that Sherlock
  • I didn’t kidnap John and bring him to an abandoned power station for this
  • Why can’t you just fucking tell him
  • Oh look, now he’s getting married. This is your final chance.
  • FOR GOD’S SAKE
  • Sending you flowers for luck. Hope your man visits you in hospital soon.
  • DID YOU JUST SHOOT A MAN FOR HIM.
  • SHERLOCK, REALLY
  • You’re hopeless
  • Do you mean to tell me… that you still haven’t told him
  • Look now his wife’s dead, this is the perfect chance
  • YOU
  • Nice going Sherlock, but I don’t think John would appreciate the drugs very much
  • Do you really have to listen to every word his dead wife says
  • Thank god for your knight in shining armour
  • Tell him already Sherlock, not many people would come barging through a door with a fire extinguisher for you

Bonus:

  • Happy Birthday you fucko, you better have told him. I hope I’m finally going to get some peace
  • phil on dan's twitter: how did honey get in my bellybutton

Until she convinces me otherwise, I assume that her emotional reaction to a situation is disproportionate to my opinion of what level of emotional reaction the situation calls for. Basically, if she’s on eight, I assume the situation is really a six.

Men Just Don’t Trust Women – And It’s A Huge Problem

I cannot think of a man with whom I have ever shared negative feelings who did not make it obvious, however hard he might’ve tried to hide it, that he is going through this mental process.

And yes, if you’re a man reading this and thinking, “Oh no, but she’s told me her negative feelings and I’ve responded by asking her questions about why she feels that way, does she mean me???” Yes, I mean you. I mean all of you. I am calling all of you out for this right now. No, I don’t want to have a private conversation about it, because I’m done with that emotional labor. If this describes you and you’re still in my life as a friend or partner, assume that I have accepted this sort of microinvalidation as the cost of doing business. But my acceptance of reality doesn’t make it any more *acceptable*.

what i say: im fine

what i mean: i’m happy that in the closing number of The Book Of Mormon they reference the fact that Connor McKinley overcame his internalized homophobia however I think it would’ve added a lot to the story and McKinley’s character if there was some sort of Turn It Off reprise in which we could see him going through this emotional change. It is literally established that this man has vivid, traumatic nightmares regarding his sexuality every night. It would’ve added a lot to the production to witness him change his worldview as he begins to doubt the existence of god and the legitimacy of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. And lets talk about Kevin. Did Kevin’s arrival at the mission center influence Connor’s worldview? I mean obviously the nonsense that Kevin, Arnold, and Nabalungi started prompted Connor to question the legitimacy of what he’d been told his entire life. But he also tried to kiss Kevin after the general shot that guy. Like he just tried to kiss Kevin and it’s never acknowledged again. How big of a role did Kevin play in Connor’s emotional development? Why don’t we get to see it happen? Connor was in serious denial about his sexuality since 5th grade, is he okay? 

Do you ever cry because James, Sirius, and Remus all deserved so much better like I’m watching Prisoner of Azkaban and it’s the scene in the shrieking shack and Sirius is like “I WOULD HAVE DIED! I WOULD HAVE DIED RATHER THAN BETRAY MY FRIENDS!” And he totally would have without a second thought and then when Pettigrew escapes I always think like “why didn’t you just stun him or smth” bc then Sirius would be free and not accused of murder. And he was like “Hogwarts is so beautiful I can’t wait to walk through the doors again as a free man” but no he had to become a fugitive and harry couldnt move away from the Dursleys and then Sirius died and all my bbys would’ve just be happy if they just didn’t have to suffer the way they did. Because I cry about that. A lot.

Sis, don’t reserve your availability for him

When a POT wants to set a date with you or a client wants to book you and doesn’t go through?

Keep hustling like he never existed. Yes, you heard me.There’re plenty of fish in the sea.

Is he waiting to confirm that meeting? His problem.

A grown man can make his own arrangements and he should respect your time. I learned it the hard way. And I receive so many questions about it.

No, don’t text to confirm. Don’t touch that phone unless it is to text another guy. Before reserving your availability for him, think:

1. Did he set a time for your date?

2. Did he set a place?

3. Did he make reservation? 

4. Did he confirm it with you?

If he casually mentioned that he would like to have a dinner tonight, NO.

Also, not texting them has another advantage. 

Listen. If you ask him “hey, are we still meeting tonight?” he will leave you on read and it will get all awkward. He won’t want to come back to you with an apology because of fragile male ego. But if you don’t say anything he will get the idea that you didn’t sit and wait for him. And if he says “sorry we couldn’t meet the other day” just play it cool like “it’s ok I made other plans :)”  Remember, you’re a sought after woman.

If he you would meet at 8 but never called to confirm until 10? In case you’re still available and up to meet him tell him you just got back home from dinner with friends and you can meet him in 20 minutes if he wants. 

I’m thinking of my ol’ friend Graham Robb, who dedicated an entire section of his book Strangers to the idea that everyone implicitly knows Sherlock Holmes is gay - why are we still talking about it

I’m thinking of my ol’ friend Matt Cook, who included in his book a quote from a 19th century gay man relating to Sherlock Holmes through his realising own idiosyncrasies - the story of a man finding a role model, a man like himself in a story he once read

I’m thinking of my other ol’ professory friends, who’ve painstakingly put their names and academic reputations on the line to demonstrate how valid and vital queer readings of Holmes’ canon are

I’m thinking of my fellow fandom scholars, who’ve done the Work out of nothing for no one and in turn did something for someone and were harassed for it

It is too much to ask to be listened to, to be respected, to be heard - if nothing else, to be acknowledged!

Apparently so

“You did what last year?”

“Oh c’mon Ford, don’t act so surprised. I’ve been doing dumb shit like that since we were young.”

“Okay, sure, but these were young kids. Don’t you think that was a little bit of overkill?”

Stan shook his head, grinning mischievously in Ford’s direction, making his way through an opened pack of gummy bears he had snooped from the bowl by the front door. When Ford continued to stare at him disbelievingly, Stan waved his hand, talking past the gummies in his mouth.

“Hey, in their defense, none of that even worked! Not even the ‘sausages-as-intestines’ bit, and I thought that was pretty intense.”

Ford’s face screwed up in amusement before biting into a chocolate bar. “I’m sure it was,” he mused sarcastically. A moment passed before Ford’s brows drew down, in obvious confusion.

“Then how the hell did you manage to scare them?”

Stan let out a gruff laugh, patting his protruding gut. “Turns out old people are gross, but else is new?”

I read this quote, from an interview with Katherine Sui Fun Cheung, and the interviewer asked about why she was a pilot and all that, and she just said “I wanted to fly, so I did.” And I thought MAN! I can’t even figure out what to eat for breakfast, never mind sailing through a load of barriers just because I think I want to give something a shot. “Flying? Whatever, I’ll just Do It, it’s 1932 or something, I don’t care.”

Another quote? “What’s the point of flying a plane if you can’t have fun doing it?”

Look at her! We all want to be her.

I love early aviatrices - Bessie Coleman, Amelia Earhart, Beryl Markham, etc - they were like “oh is there a brand new job on the face of the earth? Think I’ll invite myself to do it before anyone says I can’t.”

Not too much time goes by before Top Gun washes up once again on these shores and that is a fact.

Borderlands Appreciation Month → [BTPS] Day 16: Favorite NPC

“I’m a hero, baby – self-sacrifice is part of the job.” | “The things I could have DONE! Friggin’ liars – friggin’ COWARDS! They’re no better than BANDITS!” | “We’re gonna scorch the freakin’ planet in fire. There’s gonna be screaming…bandits are gonna die left and right… I can’t wait!”

“Call me Jack, honey. Handsome Jack.“

Sooooooo, i just rewatched the first fitzsimmons kiss. But this time when Fitz said, “top mark, pilot, astronaut hero man,” all i could think about was what we learned in 4x12. Once again Fitz was thinking about how he didn’t measure up. Not only had Jemma been taken away from him, but she stuck on the planet with a man who was “perfect.” Fitz says, “he did everything right.” As a boy Fitz had been told he had done everything wrong and that he wasn’t good enough. He saw Will as what he wanted to be. 

But then Jemma said “and you dove through a hole in the universe for me.” And in that instant Fitz realized what he had done. He was overwhelmed with courage and kissed her. He kisses her with such great desperation. Almost as if to hold onto that moment. To hold onto her as long as he has the courage. 

Then we see in 4x12, Jemma telling Fitz that it’s not his brain or his accomplishments that made her fall in love with him. It was his heart. You can see such love in her eyes. She knows what Fitz had been told all his life. But she see the real him. She sees the heart of gold that loves her so dearly.

My thoughts concerning YOI ep. 11

I just finished rewatching the episode, and after a second watch i feel much calmer than i did after the initial watch. And i know everyone is freaking out because of the ending line of the episode but honestly I dont see anything to be concerned about.

Having anxiety myself, i admit i could practically feel Yuuri’s anxiety as he sat there watching the man he loves just beam at watching the other skaters. Coupled with the fact that Yurio is jabbing at him with ‘higher than you’ remarks, and the failure he feels he just suffered, his anxiety is probably through the roof. That being said, he’s probably not thinking clearly at all, I know I don’t when my anxiety hits it’s peek. So he’s likely thinking that Victor misses the ice, and misses skating, and probably doesn’t want to waste his time coaching someone who couldn’t break 100 SP in the GPF.

I interpreted Victor’s look differently. To me, it felt like Victor was realizing he can have just as much fun spectating as he can performing. And maybe watching Yurio was like watching a ghost of himself and he realizes that perhaps it’s time to pass the crown of Champion to someone else. He’s ready to move on with his life, his love, and he knows Yurio will be great.

Naturally, Yuuri doesn’t see any of this because anxiety can block logical thinking. We know Yuuri already decided to hang up his skates after the GPF and quite simply I feel that’s what he’s going to tell Victor. He’s going to tell him he’s ready to retire after the GPF, that he has no intention of going on to Worlds or beyond. In doing so, he feels that will end everything he has with Victor, as he’s probably in the mindset that if Victor isn’t his coach he’s not anything to him. Which plays along the lines of his anxiety. Even though they have rings a part of him is constantly thinking ‘but what if you’re not good enough for him?  You just messed up that quad flip, you’re fourth place, you’re not good enough and when you tell him you want to retire he’ll leave you.’ To me, that’s why he clenches his hands…he has all these thoughts bouncing around in his brain (most of them unfounded as we know Victor’s feelings) and he doesn’t know how to turn them off.

So while the ending of the episode may feel like an arrow in the heart, it really isn’t.

This is a conversation that they need to have. This is when Victor may have to tell him pointblank that he’s ready to leave skating behind for him. And, perhaps, words won’t be enough and Victor will skate Stammi Vicino for Yuuri and THEN Yuuri will understand.

Either way, anxiety is a bitch, and I get what Yuuri is going through from that. In that respect, the episode doesn’t scare me and neither does the subsequent discussion they’re going to have.

(2/2) Also, can shiro proposing to keith be a yearly thing( building on the "I'll say yez to you if you asked me 50 times they don't have to get married every year just think it'd be cute(though they'd definitely get married on the 50th year)) And, I think one of my favorite tropes in the family au so far is keith calling shiro nicknames (such as bro, dude ,man, etc.)and keith going monotone (I live for it)(I'm scrolling through your voltron family tag and it's amazing, so sorry for spam) xoxo ♡

OKAY. I absolutely ADORE the fact that Keith and Shiro calls each other “BRO” “DUDE” “MAN” too despite being married ‘cause I just find it utterly hilarious that’s why it makes its appearance from time to time. ;) They did call each other “BRO” and “DUDE” when they got together even when Shiro proposed. Keith going monotone LMAO I’m so happy you live for that because SAME. 

The 50 times thing Keith said is not joke. SHIRO DOES PROPOSE YEARLY. Let’s have a breakdown on how it went through the years.

[The Voltron Family] The times Takashi Shirogane proposed to Keith. They didn’t always have a wedding because that’s just absurd. They, however, do something special, like a dinner date.

[1st]  We know this was during their 8th year of dating. Had a wedding in Japan with the parents and all—traditional Japanese style.

[2nd] He proposed while they watched CSI before sleeping. Had their second wedding in Japan—modern style. The kids were there.

[3rd] Keith was eating his cereal because he was stayed up late editing so he didn’t have the energy to cook anything for his breakfast. Also he woke up late, it was already noon. Shiro went down to the kitchen and saw his husband, still in his Adventure Time pyjamas, messy bed hair everywhere, eyes closing every 5 seconds, spoon hanging in the air. 

Shiro: Good Morning, sleepy head. *gives Keith a kiss on the cheek*
Keith: Who are you? *blinks sleepily* *spoon still hanging in the air*
Shiro: *bends down to take Keith’s spoon and eat his cereal*
Keith: What the hell? *tries to look angry but is still sleepy*
Shiro: *gulps* *chuckles* Marry me?
Keith: *eyes widens* *blinks repeatedly* Looking like this?
Shiro: *examines Keith* Looking like a college student who had 10 minutes of sleep because of thesis paper and is definitely not ready to face the day to take not only one, but five of his final exams? *smiles* DEFINITELY.
Keith: *rolls his eyes while smiling fondly* Fine. Gimme a second to wash my face and we can let the kids wed us.
Shiro: Perfect. *leans in the give Keith a peck on the lips* KIDS!!!! DADDIES ARE GETTING MARRIED!!!! 
Pidge: AGAIN? *shouts back*
Shiro: WHAT IS WITH THAT TONE, YOUNG LADY? YES. AGAIN.

[4th] Keith was washing the cars with the help of Shiro. He stepped on the stepping ladder to reach the top when he was met with Shiro on the other side.

Shiro: *beams* Marry me, oh sweet sexy car washer guy!
Keith: This sweet sexy car washer guy will only marry the other sexy car washer guy if they actually finish washing the cars. *throws foams of bubbles at Shiro’s face*
Shiro: *still beaming* *foam lands on his nose* I’ll take that as a yes!

[5th] They were doing groceries at the PRODUCE section with the kids when suddenly Keith turned around to call for Shiro and he saw him down on one knee, holding out a beansprout tied at its ends in a poor attempt of a ring.

Keith: I’m not that cheap! *places hand on chest* *scandalized*
Shiro: *holds out another beansprout ring* *smiles*
Keith: Now that’s what I’m talking about. I like my men rich. *holds out one hand for Shiro to put his rings on*

[6th] Keith was in the bathroom when Shiro knocked. 

Shiro: *opens the door to enter* *slides the shower curtain aside* *frantic* Keith, will you marry me?!!
Keith: *eyes widens* *tries to cover his body with more bubbles* SHIRO WHAT THE HELL? *slips in the bathtub*
Shiro: *catches Keith in time* Why hello there, handsome. Did it hurt? When you fell for me? *wiggles eyebrows*
Keith: Shiro, I love you but I swear to god I’m going to kill you.
Shiro: Great! That’s settled then! I’ll pick you up at 8pm for our dinner date, fiance~ *winks* *leans down to kiss Keith on the lips* *blinks repeatedly as he tastes his own lips* Huh, soapy.

[7th] Keith received an urgent call from Shiro telling him to come immediately to the hospital, he wouldn’t tell him what the emergency was, just that Keith needed to be there ASAP. So Keith drove as fast as he could, leaving early from work. He looked for Shiro frantically until he found him, looking devastated in his own office.

Keith: Shiro, what’s wrong? *approaches him* *places hand on his shoulders*
Shiro: Keith, I want you to be calm, alright? 
Keith: Okay. *nods*
Shiro: I got my recent heart scan and I found out that…
Keith: *gulps* *sweats nervously* Yes?
Shiro: *sighs* I guess it’s better you see it yourself. *takes out a big brown folder from his drawer and hands it to Keith*
Keith: *takes it and opens it* *the scan reveals Shiro’s heart but in there were white veins that spelled out “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”* 
Shiro: *smirks*
Keith: *looks up* *slaps Shiro* *smiling* I FUCKING HATE YOU! 
Shiro: *laughs* *grabs Keith’s hand to stop him from slapping him further*
Keith: Though I gotta hand it to you, this is really creative.
Shiro: Yeah? You think so too? *looks at the X-Ray.
Keith: Yeah… *looks up at Shiro and slaps him again* DON’T YOU EVER SCARE ME LIKE THAT AGAIN!
Shiro: *chuckles* Sorry, sorry! But I just couldn’t resist. So? What’s your answer? *smiles fondly at Keith while interlacing their hands*
Keith: Of course, it’s a yes. You still have 44 proposals to go.
Shiro: *smirks* Wow. Someone’s counting.
Keith: Someone has to. I wonder what you’ll do next year. Gonna get creative every year, aren’t we?
Shiro: *sways them* I dunno. I could propose while I’m pooping—
Keith: And I’d still say yes. *leans in to give Shiro a peck on the lips*
Shiro: *chuckles* Wow, okay. I know you liked me, but I didn’t know you liked me THAT much, Keith!

Overwatch Reaper76 ABO.  

I thought there was going to be more to this, but I can’t make it happen so I think I give up.

When Gabriel finds him, Jack is curled in on himself on the cot, shaking in his sleep.  

They’re not…together exactly.  They’ve touched, they’ve kissed, there’ve been hands and orgasms.  But every instinct in Gabriel’s alpha body says that he can’t leave this man, his intended mate, to suffer his way through a heat by himself, cloistered away alone in some room with nothing but a vibrator and his own hands.  That’s fucking cruel.

A deeper, darker alpha instinct whispers, What if he doesn’t stay alone?  You just gonna let someone else have him?

He meant to do this the right way.  He honestly did.  Wake him up, ask him to make this official.  He’s wanted it for a while, and he thinks Jack does too.  But Jack is naked and flushed to an alluring peachy blush, with a sheen of sweat highlighting the muscular curves of his body.  And he’s wet as hell; his thighs gleam with it and Gabriel can smell him, ripe and sweet and musky.  There’s a toy inside him, holding him open and vibrating inside him on a low setting Gabriel can just detect at the lower edge of hearing. The fine muscles of Jack’s rim and lower body flutter periodically, responsive even in sleep.

Still, still he almost manages to keep his head, but as he watches, Jack’s trembling crescendoes into an orgasm that ripples through his body.  He arches and moans in his sleep, a sound like he’s taking a dick already.

Gabriel inhales raggedly and his vision goes white.

What if the reason Sherlock has horrible facial hair in The Lying Detective is because John has distanced himself from Sherlock’s life for whatever reason – questions of paternity, Mary’s fidelity, Sherlock again keeping secrets of any sort – and Sherlock mirrors John in The Empty Hearse with his facial hair and shitty demeanor? Is he heartbroken? Is he mourning? Wouldn’t that be a play on the 3 Garridebs! John plays dead, gets abducted, or lost – and Sherlock assumes he’s gone. His life goes to hell, but he attempts to conjure John and talk to him in real life like he always did in his mind palace. Except John returns from this “estrangement” but Sherlock doesn’t realize this John is actually real. This whole episode is about how one’s mind can drag you through hell, think about how bad it would be to see Sherlock who dons the symbolic deerstalker hat and gives into being the man everyone assumes him to be because his real John is gone – he might as well go on forever as that silly detective in the funny hat. However, the real John is imploring him to wake up, to snap out of it, to quit hiding, to stop caving to the pressures of the media and to actually be the man he was always meant to be.

I’m already dreading this episode.
