all the feels over these two

Technology is fantastic!!! We are able to connect with loved ones across the globe instantly face to face, watch over our homes, send messages in the blink of an eye.

However, it is also limiting. People rush to judgment, misread communication, and often the personal interactions of face and voice is limited if at all a part of relationships.

I had two such challenges this week. One where an individual felt mislead and another where snap judgments were made regarding my decisions.

Interestingly, I didn’t think these interactions would be painful to me. However I was wrong. First, I feel badly that there was miscommunication between individuals. Communication is so important to me that it was discouraging to see that weakness. Second, perhaps I shouldn’t feel hurt by the rejection shown to me because of my divorce. But I do.

Ironically, my trip to San Diego turned into a staycation in Scottsdale. Half way there and realizing we would be too late for my son to play tonight and then leaving for home again at 3 tomorrow…Then listening to the traditional “Are we there yet?” I ate the loss of the hotel. (Shaking my head!) And now get to sleep in a hotel to appease the little man instead of my own bed.

We attended the new Beauty and the Beast movie. Which spoke to me about making judgments about others. Perfect timing. So. Accept what is and pick myself up. Tomorrow will be a better day.

First off I told her she sounds so much different than Nyssa and that she’s so bubbly and Nyssa is so serious. And she said, “I know!! She never smiles. Well, she did once but her face cracked.”

I asked her if we would see Nyssa on LoT again and she said she hoped so.

I mentioned a nyssara reunion and she was down for it. She wants to do their backstory.

I told her they need an entire episode dedicated to them meeting and such. She said to keep tweeting the writers about it.

She was just so sweet and easy to talk to. Didn’t make me feel dumb when I fumbled over my words at first. She also sang happy birthday to two fans (see my twitter gothlicitys for video). And all the money she made today is going to charity.

Honestly such a beautiful human being inside and out.

A quick thing for the second Slayers Week!! This bit from Mythos is one of my favorite lines I’ve written for him in my fics. It makes me realize how much he’s lost, both before the series and over the course of the story. We joke about him being all “edgy/emo/angsty” but I gotta admit, I’d be a mess if I were in his shoes. Zelgadis is a really strong character. Just goes to show that you can be a lovable dork AND kick ass at the same time. You go, Zel.

MOKONA NO THIS WAS IMPORTANT. 

MOKONA PLEASE. I WANT TO EXPLORE THE FLOATY BUBBLES SOME MORE. 

It is very possible that I was reading too much into the floaty bubbles and it is not actual. 

BUT ALSO WHO THE HELL KNOWS AT THIS POINT. I AM SUSPICIOUS OF TOO MANY THINGS. I JUST DON’T KNOW.

I have also been staring at those suits for long minutes now. I feel like I should say something beyond “wow”, and yet that’s all I can think of. 

So. Like. 

Wow. 

anonymous asked:

So Buffy was technically dead for like two minutes in the season one finale and the season two premiere (yeah I'm rewatching xD) is all about how she comes to terms with how traumatic that was, but on TVD everyone gets tortured, is forced to watch relatives be slaughtered, dies repeatedly, or is put in a coma for years but no one is feeling any type of way about that? I will forever be bitter about this show.

I keep saying. And Buffy experiences consequences, Cordelia has to be like you’re going to lose your friends, Angel and her fight over Xander in the next episode, Willow and Giles, Cordelia and Jenny are taken and Xander is like if they hurt Willow I’ll kill you. Like she NEEDS to get her shit together because people get hurt when she doesn’t. And in season 6 her entire arc is the psychological effects of being ripped away from heaven and forced back onto earth but tvd is like lol what does adjustment mean?

I'll just say it here, and you don't have to respond or anything if you don't want to. I'm sorry that I hurt your feelings. It wasn't my intention to do so, more just me being worried because you sounded really stress and that you seemed to be taking on A LOT of different anti-Newtina posts at once, and it was frustrating that you seemed to be...overworking yourself over it. But I realize my last ask sounded mean, so I apologize for it.

Don’t worry about it, honestly. I’m sure it was one or two (maybe three) posts but I was reblogging and responding to stuff other people were saying I think?

I wasn’t overworking myself at all, honestly. I’ve overworked myself this past week with a) uni assessment and b) finishing a smut thing, so this was kinda nothing.

I feel that writing out my defence stuff is strangely therapeutic? Because if I read something and then stew on it for hours I’ll feel awful, so getting it out helps. Not sure if that makes sense, but…

Internet Boyfriends

AND FINALLY: first place!!! My weak spot is Laflams and I can’t wait to collab with you!

Ok so I really hope this sends well because Tumblr might mess up the italics and stuff. Also Tumblr won’t let me submit this from my Hamilton blog, so just so you know I meant to submit this from @incorrecthamquotes.
Ship: LafLams
Summary: Alexander and Lafayette live in New York, Laurens lives in South Carolina, they’re all in a poly relationship over the internet, and Laurens is finally going to New York to meet them. This is 100% fluff.

J: I’m at the arrivals gate now. Can’t see you anywhere.
J: honestly I still can’t believe I’m finally going to meet you two irl
J: ok seriously where are you guys help I’m feeling awkward

“JOHN!”

John Laurens looked up from his phone hurriedly, trying to see where the voice was coming from. He looked to his right and only just caught a glimpse of the two people before they smothered him in a giant hug.

“Guys, I know I’m devastatingly attractive, but you could also, you know, not kill me,” he laughed. Alexander rolled his eyes.

“But mon chèri,” Lafayette said, “It’s not every day that our beautiful boyfriend comes to visit from South Carolina, we just want to make the most of it.”

“He’s just embarrassed because we’re in an airport. He’s ashamed of us, aren’t you John?” Alexander said, winking. “At least I have one person who will kiss me in public.” Lafayette put an arm around Alexander, holding him close as he pressed a kiss to the top of his hair.

“It’s not that, it’s just that I only just got off a plane five minutes ago and it’s 10PM and I’m tired.”

“Should we go get coffee then? I feel like coffee.” Alex said.

“You always want coffee, mon petit ange.”

“Yeah, but I really need it right now, I’ve only had one cup today.”

“Let me guess,” John butted in, “that one cup was the biggest mug you own, full to the brim with black coffee?”

“It wasn’t full to the brim. And it’s not that big a mug.”

“Alexander,” Lafayette said, “it doesn’t matter how much coffee you drank, it’s 10PM so we should probably go to my place and have dinner and sleep.”

“Fine,” Alex said with a pout.

“And by ‘have dinner and sleep’ I mean ‘I’ve made dinner and dessert and a blanket fort’.”

From the look on Alexander and John’s faces when he said that, that was more than fine.

* *

“What did we ever do to deserve your baking?” John asked, taking another bite from the French pastry. Lafayette blushed.

“It, it’s not that great.”

“Yes it is.”

“No it’s not.”

“I agree with John, you’re amazing.” Alex piped up from where he was lying down in the corner of the blanket fort.

“You are too kind, mes amours.”

“No, you’re too kind doing all of this for us.”

“Thank you. Now let’s go to sleep, it’s late.”

“Goodnight.”

“Goodnight mes amours.” Lafayette replied, kissing him on the forehead, then leaning over to Alexander to kiss him too.

For a moment they just laid there in the dark silently. Then John whispered,

“I can’t believe how lucky I am to have the two best boyfriends in the world. And I can’t believe how lucky I am to finally meet them.”

“Same.” said Alexander.

“Me too. Now go to sleep, mon ange.”

On Black Sails 4x09 (spoilers ahead)

So the episode was a lot different than I expected. I don’t think I disliked it, per say, it was a good episode in itself, but there are a lot of reasons it deserves critique, a lot of which have to do with timing, given that this was the series’ penultimate episode.

First of all, I feel like the writers/cast kind of over-hyped the whole bit about Silver’s past, which led us to look for something where they ended up giving us nothing. No past, no reveal. The scenes about Silver’s past would have felt a lot more justified and like less of a let-down if they had been billed as “examining the different philosophies of these two men who depend on each other so much” rather than “a reveal about Silver’s past”. Because, really, what it was and what the writers seem to have meant it to be, was introspection on the way that Silver’s past doesn’t form him while Flint’s history is the entire core of who he is now.

Don’t get me wrong; I loved the flashback scenes. Emotional availability!! Proper technical sword fighting for like the first time. Laughing and joking! They were a lot of fun, and I can easily see how this episode meant to use the scenes to highlight the emotional stakes of Flint and Silver finally fighting against one another in the present (whether these emotional stakes succeeded, I’ll get to later).

All in all, I think the main failing of this episode was that it didn’t feel like a penultimate episode. 4x09 ended up feeling like a filler episode rather than any kind of actual set-up for the finale of the entire series. The trouble is that this episode ultimately did not move the plot along or resolve anything, and it definitely didn’t set us up for an incredibly important finale to an entire series. If anything, the plot regressed to where we were ~2 episodes ago: Flint and Silver need to work together, even though their relationship may be tense, and they need to get Madi away from Rogers. The entire “rift between Silver and Flint” arc may as well not have happened at all, because now we’re right back to where we were before all of that, and it was the only thing that was solved this episode, if solved is what you can even call their relationship at this point.

Here’s a list of things that weren’t solved this episode that really should have been: Madi is still held captive, exactly where she was two episodes ago. Rackham hasn’t even reached Skeleton Island yet, much less become either a source of aid or an obstacle. Rogers barely made a move. We have no idea what’s going on in Nassau, and no moves were made towards getting back there in time for a war that will decide the its fate. At least the cache is buried, I guess. But ultimately, literally nothing was resolved. We haven’t set the pawns in place for the promised war to take Nassau once and for all, and none of our main characters are even anywhere near the place. Perhaps the only scene that yielded anything new or important was the scene between Rogers and Madi, where we see he’s been trying to make a play, and we learn that, ultimately, the war is the most important thing to Madi, regardless of who she loses.

The emotional stakes for Flint and Silver, like I mentioned, were certainly meant to be high. In flashbacks, Flint teaches Silver to swordfighting, and Silver notes that what Flint is really teaching him is “how to defeat you”. It makes sense that this is contrasted to the present, wherein Silver and Flint do have to fight one another. It’s a good device, but it isn’t done justice here in the end. Silver’s reasons for fighting Flint are a lot more muddled than at the end of last episode - the cache is in the ground, Silver can’t get it back either way. They can’t fight Rogers or save Madi alone, and Flint so much as says that them fighting right now isn’t going to solve anything, yet Silver still draws his sword. Furthermore, despite all the lead-up, we never get to see who would’ve won. I would have much preferred a scene where, after all their training, and all the times Flint’s beat him, Silver finally manages to get Flint in a position to kill him, and finds he doesn’t want to strike the killing blow. Then they’re interrupted by the Walrus.

An episode such as this feels like it should, in all rights, fit mid-season in a show, a calm before the storm kind of place, before it all escalates and everything moves into place for a finale. Yes, we got a lot of character, but we didn’t get enough proper plot, and with so many threads, we really, really needed to get moving. If this episode had been somewhere mid-season (would have been an awesome mid-season finale!), we’d have enough time to raise momentum and set up for the rest. As it stands, there’s so much more that needs to be explored before this show can be over, but we only have one episode left. Once again: Madi needs get back to Flint and Silver, Rackham needs to show up somewhere, we need to get back to Nassau. The thread of the revolution and all the men willing to fight with them has just been dropped, like seriously, what are all those guys up to now? Why did Julius feel like he was gonna have a bigger part to play? What’s going to happen with Anne and Max and Grandma Guthrie now that the plan’s off (especially given that Jack doesn’t know it’s off and may still be planning to kill Flint)? What about that mention of Thomas from a couple episodes ago?  And then there are the emotional consequences we don’t have time to examine like we really should have - Madi’s willingness to let Silver die for the war being the primary one in this case. This scene, like I said, was probably the strongest and most interesting, and it definitely feels like there should be some sort of conversation/confrontation/consequences coming from the fact that Madi would choose the war over Silver when he would choose her. Again, if this episode were mid-season, we’d have gotten the time to examine that, but here we are, one episode away from the end, and we haven’t got time. I have no idea how we’re going to get all the resolutions we need by next week.

At the beginning of this episode, we have two episodes left and a fuck-ton of plot threads to resolve. And instead, this episode decided to do absolutely none of that, and that’s why it failed.

thetidedrew: About to go back on tour again an it’s just crazy to see how my life has been for the past two years. I’ve had the privilege to travel the world with some amazing people, as well as meet some amazing people. Gods showed himself at many great points to me. He has really been there over the past two years, an just really wanna give him the recognition he deserves. We have an incredible fan base that has supported us dearly and without them, none of this would be possible. I just really wanna thank every single fan and all the love and support you give us. I feel so blessed to be able to live the life that I live. Glory to god, an can’t wait for more amazing years to come.

Spring Cleaning

Howdy, partners! After the pesky lull of midterms season, we’re glad to see everyone back on the dash and hitting their stride—and just in time for spring! Speaking of which, now that the season of showers and flowers is upon us, we’d like to discuss with you our plans for WIK over the next 6-ish weeks.

Plans better known as Spring Cleaning.

After nine months (!!!) of hard work and development across the board, we’ve decided that it’s time to recharge our batteries and throw it back to the drawing board so that, as we prepare to embark on the next chapter of this story, we’re all feeling clean and fresh and solidly planted on two feet (or four, or six, or however many feet there are between you and your characters). Throughout April, we’d like to wrap up the plot arcs we’ve introduced to the dash so far, revisit the bios of both open and closed roles, and head into our second year of the roleplay with as strong a foundation as we’ve ever had.

What does this mean for potential applicants?

Come on in, the water feels great! That is to say, we are still accepting applications through this time period for all of the bios in our open roles tag. There are several roles we’re working on revamping during this Spring Cleaning sweep, but don’t worry; they’ll be back in the tag and open for applications come May.

What does this mean for our members?

While the majority of all this work will be falling onto the shoulders of the admins (cue that muscle flexing emoji from skype, amiright?), we’d be selling all of your characters short and doing them a huge disservice if we tried to update their bios on your behalf. So, as much as we hate to say it, we have a couple of homework assignments for everyone to complete over the next few weeks. So grab your calendars, friends, and take note of these dates:

  • April 2nd: any and all event requests for the foreseeable future should be sent in to the main.
    • Weddings, funerals, birthday parties, and everything in between. If you’ve got a date you’d like to request for an event, let us know! If something comes up past this date, you’re more than welcome to submit it, but this deadline will get us started for the next few months.
  • April 9th: updated biographies are due to the main.
    • Don’t freak out; this is just the biography section, not the whole bio. You don’t need to rewrite your character’s bio in full, either. All we ask is for a little addendum to what’s there already so that we can catch up with what your character has done in the past several months.
  • April 16th: updated plot points are due to the main.
    • Perhaps your character has completed and outgrown their plot points. Perhaps your character hasn’t even touched them yet in the course of their development. Perhaps you have ideas you’d like to explore in the coming months. Whatever the case, please let us know by this date! We’ll need two updated plot points for each character. If you’re having trouble deciding what to do, don’t be afraid to reach out! We’d love to help.
  • April 23rd: updated connections are due to the main.
    • Again, at least two, but we’re open to three! If you’d like to request a connection with one of the open roles, you’re welcome to include that as part of this section. Don’t be shy about it, either; these will be a huge help to us as we revamp bios, and a connection with a taken character is always a great incentive to apply for an open role, yeah?
  • April 30th – May 6th: all updated bios will be posted to the main

We’ll be following up all this hard work with a reward, don’t you worry. All we’ll say for now is: keep your WIK calendars clear from the 23rd to the 29th.

That’s all, folks! Hopefully this isn’t too overwhelming, but in the event that it is, or if you have any questions whatsoever, you know where to find us. We can’t wait to see what y’all brainstorm up for the next chapter of this group.

Happy writing!

Bitty knows that Jack knows that Bitty knows how to dress warmly for the cold. After all, he had survived two entire New England winters yet. But he smiles and laughs when Jack pulls the beanie down over his bangs.

Jack chirps him about properly wearing toques and how you feel a lot warmer when your head is warm, and Bitty chirps him because no one uses the word toque down here, stop trying to make toque happen. They somehow end up talking about all the different ways to pronounce pecan.

My favorite part about this kiss is how intense Dylan/Stiles’ face is. He’s kissing her like she’s his lifeline, the air he breathes. He’s so consumed in this moment, in this kiss, in Lydia. You can feel how much he loves her and how much this moment means to him. This is everything Stiles has spent the past 10 years building up to, and the intensity with which he kisses Lydia is like none I’ve ever seen. Lydia holds onto to Stiles, kissing him back just as forcefully, and we get this incredible moment that seems to stop time. I just can’t get over how much you can tell that this is quite possibly the most important day of Stiles’ life just by the expression he makes when kissing Lydia. It’s gentle and intense and heartbreaking all at the same time. You can feel the gentleness he possesses for Lydia, but it’s also this intense fire that burns hot enough to consume them both. It’s so amazing that these two completely opposite things can exist simultaneously in just one expression. Dylan never ceases to amaze me with how much he understands Stiles as a character and his unconditional love for Lydia.
