This isn’t my story, it’s my coworker’s, but I work at a Johl’s and this girl had a 12 to 8.30 shift and it was busy like all day customer wise and getting called up to register.
around 6 she told one of the managers she was gonna take her half and he said no that she couldn’t go until the fitting room was empty and the z bar was clear and she went back to work and then at 7.40 she called me and said that the same manager still wouldn’t let her take her half for the same bullshit reason and that her half should’ve been done at 6 so she walked out. She had a half and a 15 left she literally took 1 break today for that shift.
What do we know about Fukunaga so far.? I feel like I'm forgetting things.
LIKE… NEXT TO NOTHING???
He has good receiving skills and is a very precise player, personality wise all we know is that he doesn’t talk much (His current concern is that Yamamoto tells him “c’mon, talk more!”) and, according to his wiki, “He’s fond of comedy and often thinks up of funny things to say but never tells anyone else so instead just laughs covertly to himself.“ WHAT A DORK
THIS IS WHY (IF YOU’RE FOLLOWING ME ON MY MAIN BLOG) I’VE BEEN FREAKING OUT ALL MORNING BECAUSE HE’S TALKING AND HE’S FUNNY AND HE’S KEEPING KENMA AND TORA IN CHECK MY BOY IS HAVING HIS DAY FINALLY I’M SO HAPPY
So … apparently in my city, tomorrow night, at the park … there’s going to be two rallies. One in memory of the woman who died. The other in support of the man who was fired. Apparently they have been urged to bring their guns. And guess who has to be at the theater beside said park on that night to rehearse for The Wiz. Never wished so hard for a practice to be canceled.
marbel: what if - hear me out - what if... instead of giving each character a unique personality... what if we just... made them ALL into smarmy, sarcastic wise-guys... who make jokes at inappropriate times... and - get this - the fans wont care... as long as we make their costumes colorful!
Listen I know we all love bilingual Lance and boy oh boy guess who’s here with some bilingual headcanons!!
•Lance used to speak fluent spanish as a child, but when he started going to public school, he just … Lost that ability.
•Lance can understand some words and phrases in spanish but doesn’t really know how to form sentences. (he knows all the cursewords and tries to use them as much as he can bc that’s Cool™)
•He can understand enough words to get the gist of what people are saying.
•Lance started to feel kind of detatched from his family since he couldn’t speak spanish and basically everyone else (save for the younger kids) could.
•His family doesn’t put any effort into teaching him spanish bc they want him to be more American than Hispanic (a sad truth that I unfortunately experienced)
•Lance starts to take spanish classes seriously when he gets to high school. He slowly learns how to form proper sentences, and he’s at the top of his class bc he wants to connect with his family language-wise. He tries hard, and grasps the language without any help from his fluent-spanish-speaking parents.
•One time, he had to do a project in spanish class, but he didn’t know how to form the sentence he wanted. So, he goes to his parents for help.
•His parents are from different regions of south america, so they speak different forms of spanish. Whatever he’s learning at school is. Not. The same.
•He had to go back and forth from his dad to his mom for one goddamn question like holy crow.
•"No, no! Your father is wrong! I speak PROPER spanish!“
-That was an actual quote from my mother it’s legit.
•His father ends up being right. At least in terms of School Spanish.
•Lance’s teacher ended up taking points away anyway bc she knew he wasn’t capable of speaking in such eloquent, complex spanish.
•He once went over his vocab list with his fam since he forgot his spanish dictionary at school. Another mistake. Don’t ask your different-spanish-speaking parents for translations when they’re in the same room.
•They spent more time arguing about the translation than actually translating.
•Mom: “Aficion? I’ve never heard that word in my life! It doesn’t exist!”
•"It means ceiling fan, mom.“
•M: “Oh! Then you mean ‘hincha’!”
•Dad: “Hincha?! Are you trying to teach our son slang?!”
•"Wait, that’s slang?!“
•D: “Aficion es the tiki tiki.”
•M: “No. El tiki tiki es la hincha!”
•They slowly seep into full spanish and Lance is watching on in amusement.
•He ends up texting his aunt about the right answer, and she tells him that it’s aficion.
•Mom loses the argument.
•He has a presentation in class for an oral test. He knows he has a great accent and great understanding of spanish, but when he goes up to speak, he can’t say anything.
•Everything comes out slow and stuttered, but he still gets an A+ bc his pronunciation is on point.
•There’s a non-hispanic/latinx kid in his class. They get straight A’s and speak faster than Lance. Lance is jealous of them. It’s not fair that a person who isn’t surrounded by latin culture can speak it so well, while he can’t.
•They’re the top 2 in the class, but Lance is always second. He’s always second in everything.
•Eventually, Lance learns enough Spanish to understand full sentences. He gets a giddiness in his chest when he can understand EXACTLY what is being said in spanish. He loves it.
•Even when his parents are scolding him in spanish, he tries his best not to smile bc he UNDERSTANDS!!
•He tries to get his parents/family to communicate with him in Spanish more bc he’s so proud that he can FINALLY understand them. He feels connected to them again, and loves the feeling of embracing his heritage at last.
•Then … His family asks hin why he never talks back in spanish.
•Lance is still shy and insecure about his spanish, bc sometimes he makes mistakes. And sometimes, fluent speakers are not the nicest when it comes to that. He’s afraid they’ll make fun of him bc he’s still learning.
•He goes to a restaurant that has people who only speak spanish in it. He then has to order from the menu.
•He asks for a soda. When the waitress leaves, his entire family is beaming at him. He asks why.
•They gush about his perfect pronunciation and format. They’re proud of him. They had no idea he knew it so well.
•Lance is almost brought to tears bc his family is just as proud of him as he is - especially on something so important to him.
•He talks and laughs with his family at dinner again after that.
•When he gets in space, he tries to keep himself knowledgeable in spanish. He doesn’t want to forget again.
•He listens to old spanish radio shows and songs all of the time. He listens to sports, no matter which kind, in spanish.
•He tries to teach the other paladins Spanish. He grins when they start cussing under their breath in spanish. Sometimes, the paladins will just slip into it and they’ll forget that they’re speaking another language bc it’s so second-nature to them.
•But Lance notices, and it feels a little more like home.

Viktor owns a dacha that he inherited from his family that’s way out in the middle of Butt Fuck, Russia on the shore of a lake the name of which Yuuri cannot pronounce.
Yuuri finds out about the dacha because the key to the place is an actual skeleton key and Yuuri asked about it while holding Viktor’s keys for him one day.
“Oh, that’s just the dacha,” Viktor took the key and spun it around in his fingers, contemplative. “I haven’t been there in years, not since the deed was put in my name. Maybe I’ll take you there someday.”
when alec said he heard that relationships take effort, he’s talking about how he’s apologetic of how the evening went. the silent treatment on the walk back home, and that for a moment he was thinking of walking away because of his own insecurities and because it was easier. but he’s willing to put in the effort to work through their differences. and when magnus said he’s all for effort, that was him telling alec that he understands why he acted the way he did, he forgives him, and that alec shouldn’t feel insecure about his lack of experience, and he wants to put in the effort and work for it, together.
that kiss was an apology for the past, a confession of the current, and a promise about the future. it was raw, pure, unadulterated emotions. and all in under a minute.
we needa give harry, matt, and the writers all the awards in the world.
