Nate: I guess I’d be surprised if it were totally unscripted, if he just was improvising, that would be a story, I suppose.

Jody: It sure would, but –

Clare: (weird 1940s carnival barker voice?) What a beautiful crowd we’ve got here tonight!

Nate: (similar 1940s carnival barker voice) What a beautiful crowd!

(Clare and Nate laughing hard)

Clare: Marty, is that you, Marty? You made it out here?

(Nate laughing hard)

Jody: You just heard, folks, the two worst Donald Trump impersonations of all time.

Nate: (through laughter) It wasn’t – it wasn’t –

Harry: (vaguely passable Trump impression) You’re both fired.

Jody: There we go.

Nate: (still laughing pretty hard) It wasn’t a Trump impression!

Jody: It wasn’t?

Clare: No!

Nate: Not per se, it was inspired by –

Clare: We were riffing – Nate and I get each other. We’re in our own improv troupe on this side of the table.

my gender & sexuality in lit prof specifically mentioned in class how good a short paper i wrote on fun home was, and then at the university gallery’s opening tonight, one of my favourite art history profs spoke to me and one of my friends (who also adores her) as though we were colleagues so i am on like. a validation high right now.

DODRIO’S “2016 is Finally Dead” THANK YOU!

Hello, my friends! 2016 is finally dead and gee whiz, am I happy about that! It’s been a difficult year of transition and change for everyone worldwide, which is an understatement alone, but I want to thank you all for surviving it with me!

These last four months of creating content (Zoidberg Voice: Hooray! I’m useful!) and interacting with all of you guy’s has really helped and inspired me, especially through my own personal recent struggles, and it means the world to me that we all bring each other so much mutual joy. 


In no particular order, I want to send my love to some friends and mutuals I’ve made! And also blogs I adore, even if we’ve never spoken. You are all wonderful and I appreciate what you do!

In other news! Please check out two new Fan Blogs I’ve created!

@rickandmortydaily and @therenandstimpyshow

I’ll be posting daily Rick and Morty content on the first (GIFs, Screenshots, Videos, Memes, News, etc.) and am looking to add Members there, and will be posting the same type of content, just Ren and Stimpy, on the second!


I am thankful for each and every one of you who follows me and (seriously) send a thought of well wishes and prosperity you’re way every night before sleeping. It’s the least I can do.

Here’s to 2017! May it be filled of prosperity, productivity and security!

favourite queens in no specific order [1/?]: adore delano

“I do have really dirty tights. They smell like feet. I’m too punk to wash my tights.”

Yvonne vs. The Predator

BOOM! goes the dynamite!

Yvonne Strahovski Joins Shane Black’s ‘The Predator’

“Strahovski will play the mother to Tremblay, a troubled boy who is accidentally drawn into the conflict with the fierce alien creatures by her ex-husband, played by Holbrook. 

Strahovski, who has had runs on Dexter and 24: Live Another Day, next co-stars in Hulu’s buzzy Margaret Atwood adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale with Elizabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes. She also has two movies in the can: Dennis Iliadis-directed He’s Out There and the Marc Forster-directed drama All I See is You, the latter with Blake Lively.“ [x]

okay, but: yuri on ice soulmates au, the kind where you have their first words on your body somewhere. 

the banquet happens as in canon, but viktor is EVEN MORE lovestruck, because this adorably drunk japanese studmuffin is his soulmate. he has always wondered about the future of his career, knowing that his soulmate would ask him to coach them, but he is unprepared for just how much he wants to throw himself headlong into doing everything he can for this cutie.

only yuuri, blackout drunk as he was, not only doesn’t remember, but also runs away from him the next day.

viktor is pretty crushed about this, thinking that his soulmate doesn’t want him, and nearly quits skating himself. until the stay close to me video. that, to viktor, reads as “i’m sorry for running away, but i’m ready now.” obviously, he immediately rushes off to hasetsu. and hey- yuuri wanted him to coach him, so viktor can kill two birds with one stone!! brilliant!!!

meanwhile, yuuri goes through the exact same freakout as in canon, but with the added stress of trying not to fall for viktor because he’s not his soulmate, damn it! viktor is crushed to find his efforts rebuffed, but tries to give yuuri whatever space he needs- after all, yuuri is the one who reached out and called him to japan. so maybe this is just him being scared of rushing into things- fine, viktor can respect that. they can totally just take things slowly. they don’t have to act like soulmates yet- they can just be boyfriends! 

and sure enough, they grow together over time. china happens, and their relationship takes a huge leap forward. (viktor doesn’t even THINK about threatening to leave yuuri, let alone actually do it, but they still have a much-needed talk in that parking lot.) they make it to barcelona, where they independently buy each other rings. viktor is thrilled beyond belief- finally, he can show his love for yuuri to the world!

(yuuri protests to himself -even harder than in canon- that they’re just good luck charms. so what if he’s been looking up stories of soulmates that didn’t work out. and of purely platonic soulmates. and non-soulmate couples. and every conceivable type of non-traditional relationsh- OKAY, HE’LL ADMIT IT, HE’S GOT IT BAD.)

finally, we get to that scene in the restaurant, where viktor just about has an aneurism. because holy. fucking. shit. HIS SOULMATE HAD NO IDEA THAT THEY HAD ALREADY EXCHANGED WORDS. all of his efforts at being coy, at respecting yuuri’s not wanting to talk about their relationship; it’s all completely backfired. all he’s done is hurt yuuri all this time. he’s the worst soulmate ever, god, how can he ever look yuuri in the face again?!? 

meanwhile, yuuri.exe has crashed. he could have had this AGES ago. EVERYBODY IN THE ENTIRE SKATING COMMUNITY KNEW EXCEPT HIM. why did nobody ever mention- oh god, this explained so many weird comments! chris even has pictures of them posing with their words! (he is a dead man.)

yuuri goes on to win the gold at the grand prix, and he and viktor get married in the most disgustingly adorable ceremony the world has ever seen. the triplets gleefully inform the internet of the whole convoluted story. everyone lives happily ever after.
