a-sentimental-man

One time I was playing the sims and I wanted to make me and mike but I wanted to make us separately and have us meet. But when I moved into my house, I had this sexy ass neighbor. I figured I could have a fling with him and break it off and get with Mike later but then the neighbors kid got attached to me and I couldn’t just end it when I was so close to his daughter. I really cared about him too.

So the only thing I could do was have it end in tragedy. That way I wouldn’t have to break up with the guy and I could adopt his daughter to stay close to her. He passed away peacefully on fire in the kitchen. Now in previous games, when a kid is taken away by CPS, the next kid you adopt is the same kid. Welp that didn’t carry over into sims 4 so the daughter ended up being taken away and erased from the game by the great sims deity.

I’m a sentimental man, so I kept neighbor mans tombstone around. I’d occasionally chat with his ghost, but he seemed cold to me. I can’t help but thinking he was a bit mad his daughter no longer existed. But this escalated once I started seeing Mike. His ethereal visits became more frequent and more hostile, usually breaking my electronics or creating a mess. But he went overboard when he started the fire.

Being a sim the died in a fire, his ghost had certain abilities specific to his death (setting fires). He got pissed because I kissed Mike so he set my couch on fire that ended up barricading us in the bedroom. Now I couldn’t find the fire alarm in buy mode and I hadn’t had the foresight to predict my spiteful ghost died-in-a-fire ex boyfriend would be an afterlife arsonist to care about it that much so a lot of the house had burned by the time I could get the FD there.

After having almost nothing covered by insurance (thanks Obama), Mike sat me down to have a talk with me. While I couldn’t understand him, I imagine he said “What the fuck you need to deal with your crazy ass ex boyfriend ghost. This never would have happened if you weren’t a thirst little sim bitch and dated me first.”

I approached the grave. It was time to release him. He was waiting for me. He knew this was the end. That after this, there was no coming back from the afterlife. I know he tried to kill me, and he knows I got his daughter deleted, but at that moment, it was just like old times. Telling each other jokes 27 times in a row until he would have sex with me.

We had a final ghostly embrace and he was gone. I sold his tombstone for 300 bucks and bought a microwave.

Harry doesn’t remember the last time he felt this giddy.

He thinks it was the time you had finally agreed to see him perform, and he had found a bouquet of flowers in his dressing room with a small card that read “If you were a flower, you’d be a damndelion”. There was no signature on the card, but he immediately recognized your scribbled handwriting. He had worn a grin for the rest of the night, feeling utterly enamoured by your silent act of kindness, wondering how someone with that much heart fell into his crazy life.

Now that he was thinking about it, he had always been showered by your good nature. It was what had attracted him to you in the first place. Your gentle personality had the ability to touch others in a way that made them feel like the most important person on the earth. And now that Harry’s watched your kindness spread through the hearts of the ones he loved most, he promised himself to finally be honest with you … even if it meant crossing the blurred lines of your close friendship.

tropes i’m really fucking tired of:

-fat character really loves food (more than the norm, everyone else eats normally-did i mention they’re a disgusting mess while eating?)

-black sidekick/companion who is actually very likeable (much more so than the protagonist), but whose characterization is lacking/underdeveloped

-loud and wild (heavily coded autistic/adhd/etc) characters that everyone treats as annoying/a joke

-strong woman protagonist that has expressed the “don’t need no man” sentiment, but still somehow ends up with a man

HIIIIII. Can you do a papasuke fic or sth? I saw a chibi drawing of papasuke and sarada bean (from blanket-fictions) and it's soooo cute I can't help it. I LOVE YOU AND YOUR WRITINGS. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!! HEARTHEARTHEART

before he leaves, sasuke gives sarada an envelope of photos from the better parts of his past. he tells her to open it, to look at them, and sarada fingers the yellowed flap tentatively. he thinks, amused, that she’s moving a little too cautiously for its contents and hopes she won’t be that disappointed when she sees what he’s collected.

“i am not a sentimental man,” he says, “but i have, admittedly, saved some memories from over the years.” she pauses to listen to him but he nods back at the envelope. “i’d like you to have them.”

“why?”

he just smiles and shakes his head and tells her to open it. with her beside him, he hears her breath hitch at the first photo.

One of the saddest things for me is the fact, that despite Narcissa‘s faith that Snape’s regard for her son is enough to vow to kill Dumbledore, of all people, Draco himself rejects Snape’s help. He doesn’t trust Snape to have his best interest, not steal his glory. Considering the lengths Snape has to go to protect Draco’s innocence, and the fact that Snape is Malfoy’s mentor and Draco is ultimately one of his charges - that must’ve stung. I don’t always consider Snape to be a sentimental man, even in private, but I think the situation frustrated him to no end. I mean, this is his friend’s son. They’re, supposedly, on one side. And he just hits the wall full stop.

RE: The defence of the Civil War Break up   @fluffycakesistainted

It got out of hand it’s just too long so I start a new post here. 
While I see some of the points you’ve made, I have to respectfully disagree with your take on Tony and Pepper regarding the event of Ultron. First of all, Tony played a part, but he did not create the murderous bot, “We weren’t even close to an interface.”  The mind stone was what ultimately gave Ultron life and a mind to think, but Tony took the blame as he felt responsible since this thing was born in his lab. But I can’t agree with how you think that Pepper, who stood by him all these years through the ups and downs, would blame it on Tony for Ultron. And leave him for that? No. As if she didn’t know his biggest fear is the threat from outer space, his biggest motivation is to protect everyone to protect ‘the one thing he can’t live without’. No, she of all people wouldn’t blame Ultron on Tony, and she wouldn’t leave him for that. Remember in Iron Man, 

‘You stood by my side all these years while I reaped the benefits of destruction. And now that I’m trying to protect the people that I’ve put in harm’s way, your going to walk out?’  
‘You’re gonna kill yourself, Tony. I’m not gonna be a part of it.’ 
‘I shouldn’t be alive… unless it was for a reason. I’m not crazy, Pepper. I just finally know what I have to do. And I know in my heart that it’s right’

For Pepper, what Tony does, be it the military industrialist or Iron Man, doesn’t change what she sees in Tony, she sees him as a good person from the start. She was by Tony’s side before he became a hero, and like Rhodey, she’s here for Tony Stark, not for what Tony Stark can do for the world. So the mishap of Ultron and Tony continuing to be Iron Man are not the reasons that would drive her away. She understands his sentiment to be Iron Man, to do what he does, and she respects and supports it. Just like the quote from above, once she sees his reason, she agrees to help him. 

From IM1 to IM3, the issue she has is never about Tony being Iron Man, it’s the fact that by being Iron Man Tony puts himself on the line, and that he cares so little about himself if it means he is doing the right thing and saving others. She cares for him but he doesn’t care for himself, that’s what cause the conflict throughout the three movies. We see him keep pushing her away in IM2 because he’s dying, and shuts everyone out including himself when he’s experiencing PTSD in the beginning of IM3, he locks himself in his lab and Pepper has called his suits building a distraction and she’s right. He’s distracting himself from facing his post traumatic problems and refuse to seek any real help. When you’re in a relationship, you can only shut your partner out so many times when you clearly have a problem but refuse to deal with it until they lose patience and get mad. If you don’t let them in, they don’t know where to stand even if they want to be there for you. We get a taste in that in IM3, and by the end of the movie, seemingly they have resolved the issue but the truth is, it’s only the first step. Tony trashing all his suits doesn’t mean he’s gonna stop building more suits or stop being Iron Man, all the suits he destroyed in IM3 represent his ‘distractions’, his unwillingness to deal with his own mental illness. 

’And all you distractions?’ 
‘Screw it, it’s Christmas.’ 

By destroying them, it’s his promise to Pepper that he’s gonna deal with his problem, he’s gonna stop locking himself up and starts letting her in and work on their relationship. The ending of IM3 (at least in my opinion) never suggests everything is all wrapped up and it’s all sunshine and rainbow for him from now on, it’s just a start. 

The way I see it, Tony goes from destroying all his suits in the end of IM3 to having an army of Iron Legion in AOU is not a plot hole or ooc, or that he’s back to his old self and dismiss his development in IM3. It simply that the Iron Legion is not a distraction of his own problems, he’s building them for a purpose, which is to protect the earth and help out the Avengers. And remember how Tony is in pretty good shape before Wanda messes with his head with the vision, it’s safe to make assumption that between post IM3 and pre AOU, Tony has sought help and his mental health is in good condition, and that he and Pepper are in a steady relationship. We may never know what causes the break before Civil War, but it’s most definitely not because Pepper blames Tony for Ultron. 

Here’s my take on the reason other than lazy writing in order to make him emotionally unbalanced and vulnerable: by the end of AOU, Tony mentions ‘build Pepper a farm’ so it does say they’re still together after the event of Ultron. What happens is you see how guilt written Tony is in CW when the lady confronts him about Sokovia, you can tell how much he is consumed by guilt post AOU. And what you do when you’re being eaten alive by guilt, you shut yourself out from everyone because you don’t think you deserve good and comfort. And this is an old habit of Tony, he knows he shouldn’t be doing this to Pepper, but the weight of the guilt wouldn’t lift itself unless he can find something he can do about it to make any form of amends. So he busies himself into all sorts of work that can ease his conscience a little bit, but in doing so he’s become more distant and close off, and even when Pepper reaches out, he would likely to dismiss the issue. And I suppose it’s gotten to a point where Pepper is like, ‘You know this is not how a relationship work, I can’t live with you when you’re not living with me. If you need your space you figure this out, I’ll give you space.’ Hence the ‘break’, which explains why 1) Tony said ‘we’re on a break’ but not we broke up,  2) ‘I don’t wanna lose her’ meaning she hasn’t left him all he needs to do is sort himself out before losing her. That’s why he wants to do the right thing by signing the Accords as it is the amend he can make for the public. My headcanon is that the intention of the ‘break’ is that Pepper trying to give Tony and herself the space we all need sometimes to come to terms with ourselves, what she couldn’t foresee is the ‘break’ comes in the time when the Accords, Avengers dispute, Winter soldier are all happening at once, and has added even more stress on Tony’s part. 

But seeing them back together [spoilers] and are now ready to take another step forward into their relationship just shows that they were never giving up on their relationship even at times they had their differences. 

So I was reading an article on ANN today, having a fine time, entertainingly written and all. And then I hit a wall.

A wall that demanded I get my gaytective gear out for One Last Job (pardon the scan quality - I had to use my own collection). 

Because my dudes of all genders, let me tell you, they’re right. There’s no chemistry to be found in Petshop of Horrors. 

We all know, after all, that flowers around a meaningful meeting in josei? Means nothing.

A common sentiment from a man who openly hates and resents the human race, which the chapter up to this point was written around emphasizing. 

That tsundere. 

THERE IS NO BONDING OR CHEMISTRY GOING ON HERE. IGNORE IT. 

Presented without commentary. 

And certainly other characters never pick up on anything either.

From friends, to say….

…total strangers…

…domestic disputes….

IN THE MIDDLE OF A DIRE SERIES OF EVENTS

And the series ends with a separation that Leon refuses to accept, leading him to leave the law behind entirely to pursue D on his own, just for the chance of meeting him again. As though the center around which the series spins was the progress of this relationship from pure hatred to complicated obsession.

…..Sorry what was I saying?
