on the same track of thinking, i’ve been wondering about what it is that DOES make theater and the arts so gay, because, let’s be real, everybody involved in theater and the arts is super gay. it’s made me think about lying and the art of selfhood and expression. gay kids growing up are inundated with images of how their life is supposed to be and how they’re supposed to behave, and i think the participation in this inauthentic performance (for the acceptance of others!) would make someone more prone to believe that they would be able to act (and give them lots of practice) as well as create a longing for an expression of the authentic self through art

Today in TTOI History: Malcolm teaches a master class in spinprov while dressed ‘like as if there’d been a Scottish James Bond’
And when you combine this spinprov with the very similar (but not nearly as well dressed) spinprov from 104,
and then add it to Malcolm’s rather futile attempts to to cover-up Fistygate, you can see how Malcolm is much much MUCH better about lying convincingly about others than he is about lying about himself
at which he is very very BAD. So bad!
Also, he is pretty horrible to Geordie Julie the Merry Fucking Widow who only wants justice for her dead squashed husband, but at least he doesn’t flat out tell the news she’s a racist – you know, as he did about the poor piss woman who only wanted justice for her mother. So why was he (marginally) nicer to Julie Price? Could it have been because of a vague sense of déjà vu?
wait people who think global warming is a lie, why do they think that? i mean like obviously it’s been proven and stuff but like why would the government be lying about global warming? what do they gain out of that?
A/N: I’m posting this second time because i accidentally deleted the last one. I’m sorry to bother you all again :( Thanks to @imadeangirl-butimsamcurious for beta-ing this and helping me :)
You knew something was off about Dean - you just couldn’t figure out what - and he sure wasn’t making any move to tell you about it. He was lying on the couch, with his one arm covering his eyes. You couldn’t take it anymore.
“Dean, you alright?” you asked.
“Huh? What? Nothing.. I mean yeah I’m fine,” Dean stuttered.
You rolled your eyes. Really? He thinks he can dodge me? you thought.
You left your chair and walked over to the couch to see if he had a fever, pressing your hand on his cheeks and finding they were just as hot as you thought they’d be.
“Dean! You are definitely not fine! You are burning up. God! Why do you always pretend to be so strong? You could have told me that you were sick!” You were practically scolding your boyfriend. In response Dean was giving you his best puppy dog eyes, a skill he’d learned from his brother. “No. No. No. Don’t give me that look, Winchester!”
You sighed and stood up, starting to make your way to the kitchen when Dean grabbed your elbow.
“Hey! Don’t be mad at me, sweetheart. I’m sorry, I should have told you. But I just didn’t want you to worry about me,” Dean said.
“I know, babe. But you not telling me makes me more worried so just don’t do it next time. Okay?” you said as you placed your hand on his cheek, rubbing slightly with your thumb. He leaned in your touch.
“Okay,” he said with a smile.
“Now, I’m gonna go, I’ll give you some medicines and I’m gonna make soup for you. That’ll make you feel better.” With that you went to the kitchen.
When you entered Dean’s room you found him lying on the bed, the covers pulled over him as he watched some random episode of Dr. Sexy M.D. Seeing you coming he scooted over to give you enough space. You settled in his bed and started to feed him the tomato soup you’d made for him.
You gave him medicines and told him to get some rest, then laid with him for few minutes until he’d drifted to sleep. After he fell asleep you made your way towards kitchen to make something for Dean to eat.
You were in the kitchen making pie for Dean when he hugged you from behind. You spun in his arms so that you were facing him. He lifted you a bit in the air.
“What are you making, sweetheart?” he asked.
“I’m making pie for you. How do you feel now?” You said giving him a sweet peck on his nose.
“Much, much better.”
You smiled. “Well then I guess I did my job well.”
“Mmm hmm.“ He inched closer. "I love you, Y/F/N Y/L/N,” Dean said, closing the space between your lips. You parted after a while.
“I love you more Dean Winchester,” you said kissing him again.
“You know what? I think I should get sick more often,” he said, pretending to be thinking.
You hit his arm playfully.
“What?” He winked. “You just take such good care of me."

Donald Trump continued his longstanding denial of his own record on the Iraq War, angrily disputing Hillary Clinton’s reminder of his actual record.
He called it a “mainstream media” falsehood put out by Clinton.
Trump has repeatedly used his alleged opposition to the Iraq War to suggest that his “good judgment” about foreign policy is superior to Clinton’s. But in an September 11, 2002 interview with shock jock Howard Stern, found by BuzzFeed in February, Trump in fact said the exact opposite. “Yeah, I guess so,” Trump responded when asked if he supported an Iraq invasion. “I wish the first time it was done correctly.”
Indeed in his 2000 book, The America We Deserve, he called for a “principled and tough” policy toward “outlaw” states like Iraq. “We still don’t know what Iraq is up to or whether it has the material to build nuclear weapons. I’m no warmonger,” Trump wrote. “But the fact is, if we decide a strike against Iraq is necessary, it is madness not to carry the mission to its conclusion. When we don’t, we have the worst of all worlds: Iraq remains a threat, and now has more incentive than ever to attack us.” There is no evidence that he publicly opposed the invasion until after it had happened.
Although Trump was reminded of this in a February CNN town hall and he conceded that he “may have said that,” Trump has continued to repeat the false claim that he was “totally against the war in Iraq.”
He claimed that he had told Sean Hannity before the war that he was against it, but lamented that no one has called Hannity to ask him to verify their conversation
And then there is that one person you love. So much that they consume all your thoughts day and night. So much that you you just could lie down with them for an eternity. So much that you would do anything to be with them. But then you realize it. Realize the truth. They had been lying. Lying all along. Lying about the fact that they loved you. Lying about how they will love you forever. Lying that every damn time you asked them how much they loved you. Every damn time. It is always that one person you love the most who leaves you broken in the end.
Why is this so complicated and hard to comprehend? It’s this simple…. IF Donald Trump is lying about CURRENTLY being audited, that’s it. It’s a wrap. It’s the biggest LIE he has perpetuated his ENTIRE campaign. WHY is the media not at least insisting he provides the proof of the excuse? Enough is enough. He is a snake oil salesman. #AuditProofNoExcuse
(aside from my general feels + family-background-hc-bonding feels)
is that Daisy has not betrayed Fitz, nor Fitz Daisy to Fitz’ knowledge, ever
he wasn’t talking about the solidarity of the team (necessarily, although that’s great too). he was personally talking about himself and Daisy
when we suspected May, Daisy was there supporting Fitz, helping him even though she had not actually seen May do anything suspicious
when Ward betrayed them, she was there; supporting Fitz, and just as if not more betrayed by Ward
when SIMMONS, his best friend of almost a decade!!, left him - which at the time was a ‘betrayal’ (leaving voluntarily & lying about it, he had good reason to feel abandoned) and a very, very painful one despite her valid mission & good intentions - Daisy WAS STILL THERE
when Daisy had got her powers and hid them from everybody and felt like/was seen as a threat, Fitz supported her even to the point of lying to & fighting against Simmons for Daisy’s sake
when Real Shield screwed them over they screwed both of them over
when everybody thought Simmons was dead Fitz still had Daisy, who presumably helped him on his bad days throughout the hiatus, and who definitely jumped at the opportunity to help even though it meant causing herself great pain (ofc this was for Simmons too)
the only time she EVER HURT HIM she was being possessed/drugged by an evil murdery alien thing and EVEN THEN she didn’t even really hurt him that much or kill him even though she totally could have if she hadn’t been able to resist that extra twitch of her fingers
and then Daisy gets hurt and she UP AND LEAVES?? No. That’s not what We do.
Impression now: Charming liar that I will never be able to smooch and forever be sad about it. But at least we are BFFs in game.
Favorite moment: To pick something not convo related again, the alien crash site. Tinker Tom deserves his I told you so, Deacon.
Idea for a story: Noir au where Deacon hires Sole and Nick to find the traitor in the Railroad.
Unpopular opinion: IDK if this is unpopular either but I do think that Deacon was a bad liar to Sole on purpose. He wanted one person to trust but he also didn’t want Sole to make the same mistakes he did. A bit of a catch 22 for him. I really don’t believe he was lying about his past.
Favorite relationship: Deacon/Sole
Favorite headcanon: Total bibliophile. If he reads one out loud, he’s gonna act and talk like the character. Whatever they may be.
