Until Death Do Us Part


Headcanon that Holtzmann have a lot of fun toying with dress codes to mess with snobbish people at formal events. 


anonymous asked:

At the end of tfc book three when Neil walks into the locker room grinning just after seeing Riko murdered... How do the foxes react when they find out why he was smiling?

Wow. Gonna have to pull out my books and reread that scene again. I don’t usually do prompts (is this a prompt? I’ve never actually gotten one so well, yeah…) but hopefully this is okay?

Also, apologies, this kinda turned into the foxes’ reactions to Riko’s death.

Andrew finds out on the way to the hotel. The adrenaline from the game and the win and the short questioning by the police finally dissipates and the bus is quiet except for a few murmurs for directions exchanged between Wymack and Abby. They are slumped in the back seat together, Andrew and Neil. The seats in front of them empty. Neil is still in a good mood and Andrew could feel it rolling off him in waves. Eye contact, a raised eyebrow, and Neil says, “Riko is dead.” And Andrew smiles for the second time since coming off the drugs.

Renee finds out when she gets a text message in the middle of the night. The small vibration and the light of her phone screen somehow doesn’t wake Allison. It is from Jean. He’s dead, is all it says and Renee knows instantly who. She shoots off a quick text in reply and sets her phone aside. The darkness presses in when the screen turns off. Renee is no longer someone who believes in murder and violence, but a small part of her that she tries her best to ignore is viciously pleased.

Kevin finds out next. Of course he does when the next day every exy related website is changed to black and red in honor of Riko’s passing. Kevin’s not dumb. He’s knows what really happened. And as he figures out the how and the when because the why is a no brainer, he remembers Neil’s smile that was a little too sharp around the edges, the easy way “Life” came out with a hint of breathlessness. It clicks and then the distraction of the mystery is gone and the grief hits like an exy ball to the chest with no padding on.

Allison finds out when she’s checking Facebook in the morning. Some girl from some social circle related to her parents posted a picture with Riko with some obnoxious caption on how he was gone too soon. Unfriend. Block. Allison doesn’t care. She goes on an unfriending spree as thoughts of Seth drift through her mind.

Nicky finds out in a similar way as Allison does. While Allison has Facebook, Nicky has Twitter. He follows the tag used for the Foxes upset, #TheKingHasFallen. The night before it was filled with taunts and jabs at both the Ravens and Foxes, but in the morning it is paired with a new hashtag. Increasingly mixed in with the exy results is #RIPRiko. It doesn’t take long for Nicky to google the news. “Holy shit,” quietly slips out of his mouth and because the news is too big and too extreme it bubbles up his throat and comes out again but louder. “Holy shit.” Aaron is still sleeping like the world didn’t just get turned on its head. Nicky launches a pillow at him and sends a text to the foxes’ group chat.

Aaron finds out when Nicky throws a pillow at him and besides grumbling and adding the pillow to his collection he doesn’t really care.

Dan and Matt find out at the same time. They are the first ones down for the continental breakfast the hotel provides. The news is on in the background talking about an upcoming storm. When Dan is making coffee and Matt is piling more eggs onto his plate, the news moves on to sports and like every good exy player, their attention is grabbed when news on Riko Moriyama comes on. The coffee overflows, the egg spoon drops, and that’s the moment Neil stumbles bleary-eyed out of the elevator. He takes one look at the screen with an action shot of Riko from last night’s game and the sides of his mouth twitch into a cold smile and then back into a neutral line of indifference. It is not missed by Dan or Matt. He nods a greeting, grabs two chocolate frosted donuts, and a carton of milk, and disappears back into the elevator.

“Did he just…?” Matt begins.

“Smile? Yeah.” Dan finishes a little bewildered. She picks up some napkins to mop up the coffee. She doesn’t really understand the complexities of the mess between Neil and the Moriyamas but the ease in which Neil moved across the room is similar to how he was after he came back to them from Boston. And that is enough for Dan.

Matt bends down to grab the spoon he dropped. He scans the area for a worker and puts on an apologetic smile when he hands over the dirty spoon. His eyes flint over to the elevator like the doors were going to open and Neil would come out again. They remain closed with the digital number above the door changing and finally stopping to the floor most of the foxes were on. A chill runs down Matt’s spine when he remembers the smile on Neil’s face. It’s so different from the happy upturn of lips that they sometimes startle out of him or even the fake “I’m fine” grins. The smile was something dark, sinister, vicious and weirdly enough it was also relieved. And that last emotion is what makes Matt shrug and move on to the bacon.


Wymack gets a call from the police around 3 am, just as he is finally settling down for the night. He holds in a sigh as his listens to the officer and starts the coffee machine provided in the hotel room. He thinks of the obligatory condolences card he would have to send that he knows none of his players (except maybe Renee) would sign.

 Abby gets a text message from Wymack moments after he gets off the phone.

a compassion exercise

If you’re mad at Abby for breaking the chamber when her child is about to go inside, then picture this:

Octavia is with the lab team, she sees someone about to inject Emori, and she takes the syringe and injects herself instead. (As she’s done before on the show, more than once.) Then Octavia turns to the group and says “We’re testing it on me.” Because Octavia has her morality​ lines and this is far, far past it. Everyone looks at each other. No one knows what to say. It’s done. Octavia will be tested.

Now picture Bellamy standing right there beside the lab equipment, the needles, the sterile inhuman brutality of Becca’s wealthy delusions. Picture his eyes going between the gas chamber and his sister. Between the dials and the the tubes and the girl who he held in his hands as a helpless infant. The person he’s loved longer and harder than anyone on Earth, the person he helped learn to read and sing and tell stories and walk.

What would Bellamy do it if was the child he raised?

He’d break the fucking chamber.

So hold that in your mind before you judge Abby for being a human being who loves. Who chose someone else over her family. Just like John did, just like Emori did, and just like Bellamy would if he were there.

I find it kinda hilarious that people would even consider Bellamy was looking anywhere but at Clarke on this scene

Look, cinematography is relatively simple for the audience, when they want it to be. Sure, there are a lot of hidden symbolism and references, but those are related mostly to hints. Things that will reveal themselves later anyway.

And, most of the time, symbolism happens when something ELSE is happening on the scene, something that will divert the public’s attention. - Which isn’t the case on this scene and on most scenes where no one is speaking, or when the camera turns to some other character for too long.

But on ALL  scenes, at all times when you’re watching anything on TV, the non-speak scenes are meant to be something every casual viewer can understand. The non-speak scenes are scenes that should be “speaking” for themselves. Otherwise, the tv show or the movie is just not communicating right.

It’s as simple as this: Clarke is talking to Abby

Camera moves to Kane

Kane and Camera move to Bellamy

Now, on tv shows and movies the camera moves to whatever they want you to see - anything that is NOT on the camera, they don’t need you to see. They choose YOUR focus. And this time, they choose Kane and Bellamy. Since Kane and Bellamy are not talking, it’s fairly obvious the change in camera does not mean a change in the subject. Since nothing else showed on camera , or rather, on focus, it’s also fairly obvious the only thing we have to see here are Clarke and Abby talking - Kane and Bellamy listening.

Simple cinematography wasn’t made for mathematicians, or people with inpecable memory, it is not testing if you can tell the angle of Bellamy is looking at and figure out whether it’s Octavia or Clarke, or if you remember that Octavia was even there, cause that’s not natural for a viewer. The scenes are happening, the action is happening, no viewer will stop to think about where Bellamy is loooking at - the camera already showed us, it’s no rocket science. If they wanted us to think Bellamy was looking at anywhere else but Clarke and Abby, they would have showed us.

And, no, not like this:

(the only reference that Octavia was there btw, and I - a very NON casual viewer- could barely remember Octavia was there with them)

but like this:

It’s simple, easy and obvious. They always  focus on what they want us to see the most.

(or do you think the most important part of that scene was Bellamy looking at Bryan and Miller? If not then you must realize that saying Bellamy was looking at Octavia on 4x01 is the same comparison or even worse cause she wasn’t even speaking on that scene, or relating to it at all)

And as much we all love to make deep analysis, and connect dots few people can see, most part of the show is made so most part of the people can understand. 

The foreground plot speaks to the audience - whether they are fandom experts or just a soccer mom who likes this show that airs at wednesday nights.

Some scenes are as obvious as they are, let them be. Your first feeling when you watched it is probably the right one because that’s the feeling they wanted to convey without having to spell it out for us.

headcanon where Kane’s been secretly watering the ark’s little tree he planted out in the forest. Hoping one day it grows tall and strong, and big enough for him and Abby to be married under. And he has this dorky speech to Abby about how he’d watered all this time; it’d given him hope. And the way it had blossomed had reminded him of them. And on the day Abby says sweet things to him about how proud Vera would be. Raven and Clarke put pretty flowers in Abby’s hair. And they find her a dress from the old clothes in Mount Weather, and Kane a nice blazer. And everyone comes out to celebrate - and let their guards down just this once, to see Kane and Abby married under the ark’s tree.

andromedasstars  asked:

Hi, I was wondering if you had any headcanons for Abby and Neil? I mean everyone knows that boy needs good loving parental figures and as Wymack pretty much has 'team-dad' covered...

I’VE THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT THIS OK NEIL NEEDS A GENTLE MOTHERING SOUL (this entire thing is cheesy but I’m a sucker for that shit so here we go)

  • neil knows mothers as hard and punishing and tough love
  • he recognizes his mother’s brand of love because he grew up around her
  • he recognizes being beaten for a wrong move because he needs to be safe
  • he recognizes love as caring for him even if its harsh and cold
  • its why he doesnt need to be told “i love you” by andrew and why he doesnt need to say it back
  • he knows love as protection with angry words and fists
  • and later he knows love as andrews hand on his neck and a rough pat on the back after a game
  • he doesnt recognize love as soft words and gentle hands, so maybe thats why he doesnt recognize abbys actions towards him

really tho @ all of the fandom

dont use ABBY IS MEAN as an excuse to fat shame bc everyone can see right through it


we all can see you mean

“i actually just really hate fat people and think the same awful things about all of them, but i actually can say the awful thing about this particular one and people wont yell at me because they dont like her!!!!!!!! i love being able to spew hatred towards groups of people i dont like for no valid reason with no consequences :-)”


Marcus waited to radio Abby until they were sure. Until it was certain that the shelter was structurally sound, and most importantly, radiation-proof.

And it was.

It was massive, too. Underground tunnels and halls and dozens of private rooms. Fresh water from a well dug deep into the earth. Even power from solar panels.

They wouldn’t just survive - they might even be comfortable.

beautiful-flutey  asked:

The reader is Abby's little sister and gets herself in to trouble. Also if you can put some conversations in sign. I'm not very good with prompts so.

You hurry into NCIS, tapping the reception desk. “Hello, I would like to see my sister. Her name is Abby Scutio.” Your mouth moves quicker then you think, like always when you’re nervous. “She’s yea high, black hair, happy looking goth?”
The agent at the desk nods and hands you a visitor badge, giving you instructions on where to go and hoping you somewhat calm down.

You sprinted to the elevator, squeezing between agents here and there, not bothering to give apologies. Life or death was much more important then apologising to that agent you knocked over. And you could always apologise later.
You ran down the stairs (you preferred stairs to the elevator) and skidded into the lab. “Abby!”
You sister looked over, mildly shocked at the interruption, but even more shocked when she saw you. “(Y/N) Penelope Scuito! Wha- What are you doing here?” She abandoned the older looking man to hug you.
You look between him and your sister, then begin moving your fingers in sign language.
Abby’s face fell as she saw the situation at hand- quite literally- and she signed back.
You didn’t notice the agent watching and reading the sign language between you and your sister. “Why are you in danger?” He asked calmly. Your face flushed red.
“You didn’t tell me he knows sign.”
“He’s with me.” Abby protested, crossing her arms. “You’re my baby sister. You don’t need to hide from danger. I’ll protect you.” She took your hands, which were frozen midair, and pulled you in for a hug.
After a moment, you hugged Abby back. No matter who came after you, and no matter what they wanted to do, you had no doubt that your big sister would protect you.

6. “You can’t die. Please don’t die. (can it be Tony Dinozzo saying it to the reader please ^^)

“You can’t die. Please don’t die.”

Three days. It’s been three days since anybody has had contact with you. A lot can happen in three days. 72 hours. 4,320 minutes…

Tony shook his head, lowering it to stare at his keyboard. He was starting to think like McGee.

But he could help but count the minutes as they went by. It was like pulling teeth; waiting for a phone call from your captures. Hell, Tony was hoping that somebody would at least find your body soon, if you were dead. At least then, he’d know you weren’t in any pain.

And then Tony scolded himself for thinking like that. Abby would yell at him for it. His eyes flickered over to his cell phone, wondering for the hundredth time today that if he called you, maybe you’d pick up.

He reached out and held his cell phone in his hand, fighting back the impulse to do just that. “You can’t die. Please don’t die.” Tony mumbled out, wishing he could tell it to you. He was the Senior Field Agent; he could order you to stay alive. But mostly, he just wanted to hear your voice.

Wells Lives

I  miss Wells.

Who would Wells have been if he’d survived? We always think of him as so perfect, but I guaranteed that, if faced with the death and destruction of the ground for much longer, he would not have remained so pure.

How would he have changed, living under the constant threat of the ground? How would he have dealt with the loss and burden of making decisions on the ground? 

Would he have maintained his idealism? Would he have been broken by the pain? Would he have won through or been destroyed?

What do you think would have become of Wells if he had survived until season 4. This has always troubled me. I couldn’t see it. And fanfiction always portrays him as so perfect. He couldn’t possibly have remained perfect. He would have gone through the same horrific struggles and moral defeats as Clarke, Bellamy, Raven, Octavia, Finn, Marcus, Thelonious, Abby, Jasper, Monty. He would have gone dark like all of them. 


KND Relationships: Wally and Abby

Their relationship has to be one of my favorites in the series. Wally and Abby’s chemistry is so genuine and natural that one would think they were brother and sister. Abby acts like the responsible cool older sister while Wally acts like the dorky little brother most of the time but they balance each other out. My favorite episode with the two of them together is obviously Operation: D.O.G.H.O.U.S.E where we see how close they really are. Abby’s moment of weakness and Wally’s understanding and supportiveness shows the kind of sincere bond they have. Plus they are both the best fighters in their team and are shown throughout the series that they have the best teamwork when they go on missions together.
