and add a comment

Time slowed, and stilled. It was just the two of us, me murmuring in the empty, sunlit room. Will didn’t say much. He didn’t answer back, or add a dry comment, or scoff. He nodded occasionally, his head pressed against mine, and murmured, or let out a small sound that could have been satisfaction at another good memory.
“It has been, the best six months of my entire life.”
“Funnily enough, Clark, mine too.”
And then, just like that, my heart broke. My face crumpled, my composure went and I held him tightly and I stopped caring that he could feel the shudder of my sobbing body because grief swamped me. It overwhelmed me and tore at my heart and my stomach and my head and it pulled me under, and I couldn’t bear it.”

The EPA wants to know what you think about scrapping air-pollution and radiation rules
To repeal a regulation, the EPA has to go through the same process it used to create the regulations. And that gives the public a chance to comment.
By Rafi Letzter

Well, let’s let the EPA know we like those rules and should keep them. Looks like the bulk of comments say so already, but let’s add to the pile!

Injustice 2 Characters in Gameplay Trailers

Obi-Wan dying on Melida/Daan would be awful, but Obi-Wan dying on Bandomeer, at Xanatos’s hand or any of the other thousands of times he was in danger.

Twelve year old Obi-Wan. Thrown out of the Temple to fend for himself on a ship of Hutts. Obi-Wan who fought so hard and so bravely for one so young.

Qui-Gon realizes how royally he fucked up when he is forced to watch Obi-Wan, a bright, intelligent, gentle CHILD, mortally wounded right in front of him. He knows now that he cannot allow Xanatos one second of a chance to escape, not with an innocent boy’s blood on his hands.

Xanatos doesn’t escape.

Obi-Wan does not get a bloodless death because Xanatos was smart and ruthless and evil. A decent sized vibroblade between the ribs in the right spot ensures Qui-Gon has no time to get Obi-Wan medical care. Qui-Gon sits on the ground and wraps Obi-Wan in his robe, holding him close to his body and offering him a meager source of comfort as he coughs up blood and shivers uncontrollably. He reaches out with the Force and smothers the boy’s pain so his last minutes will be peaceful.

Qui-Gon gives Obi-Wan the dignity of dying as a Jedi Padawan. He takes him as his apprentice and assures him his status will be entered into the Archive. Everything that happened on this day will be memorialized and Obi-Wan will not be forgotten.

He tells Obi-Wan he is proud of him, he is proud to have fought beside him, and he is proud to be honored with the title of his master. He apologizes for taking so long and reassures Obi-Wan that none of his decisions were because he thought Obi-Wan was not worth the trouble, but does not dwell on his mistakes. He wants to ensure Obi-Wan’s last moments are not bogged down with his own misery.

Qui-Gon loses his tenuous grip on his emotions when Obi-Wan’s small, shaking hand reaches up to touch his cheek. He grasps that hand and holds it in his own, firmly so he knows he is loved.

He knows Obi-Wan is slipping away when his eyes start glossing over and his blinking slows drastically. Qui-Gon tells him not to fight, to relax and let him take care of him now. He doesn’t need to worry anymore and he is safe. Obi-Wan looks up at him, clear blue eyes locking with his own, and he smiles just slightly. Qui-Gon can feel him through their fledgling bond, content and safe and loved. He passes into the Force gently, as quietly as falling asleep.

Qui-Gon feels the barest, fleeting brush of him against his mind, offering gratitude and benediction.

Maybe this becomes Qui-Gon’s turning point. Maybe this makes him realize things need to change in the Jedi Order—now.

Maybe he goes back to the Temple and says goodbye to his Padawan of little more than fifteen minutes and promises him he will do better. He will not take another Padawan, but he will do more to help the children of the Order succeed.

He singlehandedly completely revamps the Jedi. He does away with the rule of tossing Initiates out at thirteen to fend for themselves. They are offered a myriad of choices: remain in the Temple, find their birth family, join the Corps of their choosing, or receive training and education to leave on their own. Some Initiates are Chosen at 14 or 15 and become Padawans.

Qui-Gon gets the Jedi to allow small amounts of contact between the parents and their children to keep the relationship going in case the child has the option of returning to their family.

Any child going to the Corps has a Master accompany them to ensure their safe passage. Order ships are used.

Those who remain in the Temple continue their education and can choose a path to follow for a skill or job in the Temple such as mechanics or archival or food preparation. They are nurtured and supported in all their decisions.

Anyone choosing to leave is allowed to change their mind at any time. They are always welcome back. They receive education and training for a few more years until they are of age to be on their own and are able to care for themselves.

Qui-Gon Jinn’s file reads:

Species: Human
Rank: Master
Padawan: Obi-Wan Kenobi

It is never edited or changed.

This was going to be a comic, but then I went overboard with the art because I was having too much fun, so you get a one shot instead. 

Older Married Domestic Klance Fluff                          Rated: G


A Hairy Situation

“Keith! It’s happening!” Lance groaned.

“What’s happaping?” Keith mumbled with his toothbrush in his mouth.

“My youth is leaving and taking my hair with it,” Lance replied dramatically as he parted the hair along his growing forehead.

Keith spit unceremoniously and wiped his mouth with the back of his hand.

“Oh, your hair? That’s been happening for a while now. You should see the back.”

“What?!?!” Lance patted the back of his head and frowned. It was indeed getting thinner.

“You’re just noticing now?” Keith asked incredulously, failing to see what the big deal was. Getting older was a fact of life for those lucky enough to do so. Plus, family history wasn’t doing Lance any favours. A fact that Keith liked to remember every time Lance commented on his “mullet” when they were younger.

“Maybe I have been in denial, Keith. Maybe I only faced the cold facts of reality because I was looking for grays after I noticed yours.”

“What?!?!” Keith ran his fingers through his still thick, still mostly black locks and peered deeply into the mirror. Maybe he wasn’t ready to reach his silver back years, just yet.

Keith noticed a few strands of silver, mostly at his temples, but they were hardly noticeable. Lance was being petty.

“You’re just jealous,” Keith teased as he turned to Lance.

Lance pouted.

Keith sighed and ran his hands down Lance’s arm, squeezing his muscles as he made his way to his hands in a gesture of comfort.

“You grow a pretty great beard though,” Keith complimented. “I can’t believe that only took you a week. I’ve been growing mine forever.”

“I only grew it, hoping you’d tell me to shave it, so I could tell you to shave yours,” Lance retorted.  

Keith rolled his eyes and huffed, causing his bangs to fluff and settle.

“Well, I think you look handsome, beard or no beard, hair or no hair. I love you and always will. Even when we are old and you are as bald as Pipo,” Keith smiled endearingly.

Though Lance wasn’t sure what he thought about being as bald as Pipo was, he smiled, his ‘you think so’ smile and pulled Keith into his arms. He kissed him softly on the lips.

“It’s kinda like kissing a bear, but better than prickles,” Keith commented.

“A bear, eh?” Lance chuckled and moved around him so he could scoop Keith into a bear hug and rub his chin into the crook of Keith’s neck. He ran his fingers over Keith’s ribs for good measure.

Keith yelped and fake struggled, both of them knowing he could escape if he really wanted too. The tickling turned into play fighting and for a few moments, two grown men, wrestled like puppies, on the bathroom floor.

Their rough-housing was interrupted by a knock on the bathroom door and the small voice of a small girl.

“Daddys, what are you doing in there. I have to pee.”

being an antizionist jew and discussing it on this website is so fucking annoying lmfao bc on the one hand we have zionist jews screaming about how our “internalized antisemitism” etc and on the other and we have non-palestinian goyim who shut us out of any conversation the second we try to shed some light on WHY so many jews (in the west especially) are zionists so that we can perhaps approach them and get underneath all the brainwashing they likely grew up with, and gain their support for our cause

like golly gee i, a jew, sure do love getting shut out of conversations about jewish nationalism by goyim who have no stock in the issue whatsoever other than earning their Good Tumblr Leftist points so they can yell about how antisemitism doesn’t matter because #FREEPALESTINE and really have no clue what the hell they’re even talking about

it’s not hard to tell when someone considers themself an antizionist because they’re truly against nationalism and settler colonialism and are for the liberation of palestinians, and when they’re actually just antisemites or following what they think they should because tumblr says so…this issue is so complex and i’m tired of seeing people discuss it in such a reductive way lol 

when antizionist jews try to explain the reasons why there are so many zionist jews (mostly, brainwashing and antisemitism) LISTEN TO US!!!! tackling these issues is the first step to making an actual change. otherwise your “activism” is performative and helps absolutely nobody.

psa for fic readers

Do not add comments to our stories that are just grammar corrections and not actual responses/impressions to the story. Don’t say that you’re merely “commenting” and not “reviewing.” Don’t say that you’re helping us bc the error is turning away readers. Just don’t do that.

Chances are the writer knows the difference between its and it’s, their and they’re, and to and too. They probably made a typo, which is common when you’re typing quickly and rushing to get updates out. No need to assume they need a grammar lesson, much less give them one in the comments of their story.

It’s rude. It’s condescending. It’s disrespectful to a fanfic author who is writing stories for free, for fun, and for your enjoyment.
