and continue to show up and deliver

Just being able to play Iris West is putting me in a position to impact change. She is such an iconic character and so many people will know her and remember her as a black woman. Playing this role, I sometimes get blatant racism and the even more painful and complicated non-blatant racism. But I gladly put on my armour each day and take it. I have to be strong and continue to deliver, because this is bigger than me. It’s not just about this role, it’s about the landscape of film and TV. It’s about the young girls coming after me. I need to make sure I was strong enough to keep that door open for them. To show up at work and do my best, and change and impact as many minds as I can. I am deeply humbled every time someone reaches out to me to say, “I grew up reading The Flash, I cannot imagine anyone else playing Iris West after seeing you do it.”

Happy 29th birthday, Candice Kristina Patton! (born June 24, 1988)

Comeback D-1..BTS, New Song Contains ‘Comfort + Hope’ 

The reveal of group BTS’ ‘WINGS Supplementary Story: YOU NEVER WALK ALONE’ has come a day closer.

‘WINGS Supplementary Story,’ an album that delivers messages of warm comfort and hope for this generation’s suffering youth, will have a total of 18 tracks including their four new songs, ‘Spring Day,’ ‘Not Today,’ ‘Outro: Wings,’ and ‘A Supplementary Story: You Never Walk Alone.’

Their title song, ‘Spring Day,’ is a song that allows us to discover another side of BTS who has continued to keep up with worldwide trends and show their growth in music. It combines feelings of British Rock and electronic sound to create an alternative hip-hop song. Their leader, Rap Monster composed the song’s main melody. 

This BTS album is receiving a hot response (from the public) even before it’s release with pre-sales of over 700,000 copies. Through their 2nd full album ‘WINGS’ which was released last year, they set the highest record for a Korean artist at 26th on the U.S. ‘Billboard 200,’ were the first Korean artist to enter the UK album chart at 62nd place, and have received much love worldwide. Therefore, there is much interest in which records BTS will set through this album.  

Through the Naver V APP, BTS will have their BTS ‘YOU NEVER WALK ALONE’ Preview SHOW tonight (12th) at 10:40PM.

'Q&A: BTS Reveals How They Bridged The Gap Between'

OTW: What is the story behind your name, BangTan SoNyeonDan (BTS)?

BTS: The name can translate to “bulletproof boy scout,” and the story behind it is that we wanted to become someone who defies prejudices and discriminations against the young generation in general when we made debut in 2013.

OTW: What are 3 elements that make your music so relatable? In other words, what do you think it is that allows BTS to bridge the gap between traditional Kpop and top 40 pop?

BTS: One, our music is well-balanced between message and performance.

Two, we adapt the trendiest pop genres so that anyone can enjoy regardless of cultural and language barriers.

Three, special chemistry made by seven personalities in the band.

OTW: Give a nickname to each of the 7 members in BTS that describes their role in the band.

Rap Monster: Leader (official leader of the band)

SUGA: Grandpa (caretaker behind the scene)

J-hope: Hopemaker (always encouraging and cheering others)

Jin: Uncle (Jokes all the time)

Jimin: Cute & sexy (his role on the stage when performing)

V: Four-dimensional (very creative and thinking outside-of-the-box)

JungKook: Golden youngest (man of all-mighty)

OTW: Congrats on your recent album, YOU NEVER WALK ALONE! Is there a certain message or theme you wanted to communicate with it?

BTS: YOU NEVER WALK ALONE (YNWA) is a supplementary story to our previous album, WINGS, and we wanted to tell a different story that was not told in WINGS. That is one of reasons why BTS members look somewhat different, perhaps a little bit more casual and younger, in YNWA artwork. The same idea goes to “Spring Day” video. The song is based on memories with old friends who we don’t see anymore, and we wanted to visualize the story in the video blended with additional metaphors. The album is a kind of a tribute to those who long for hope and condolence, and we wanted to say, “you’re never alone, and we’re here for you,” with new songs.

OTW: How has your music evolved since the 2013 2 Cool 4 School album to the most recent (and all the music in between)?

BTS: BTS music is based on hip-hop and pop music in general because all the members grew up listening to famous hip-hop artists as well as pop vocalists, even before the debut. It was definitely very hip-hop back in 2013, and the style kind of evolved as we grew up listening and experiencing many different genres of music the last couple of years. We constantly look for new beats and read books just to intrigue ourselves to renovate as artists, even if it means failure to some of us. Rap Monster and SUGA have released separate mixtapes to test and show their unique features as individual artists along the way, and it is part of the band’s experiment to evolve together as an entity to make the better, newer music. Thus we don’t want to label our music as a certain genre or limit it to K-pop, but would like to make a new category for it if possible.

OTW: The “Not Today” music video is now the most viewed video in a 24-hour period to debut on the YouTube Top 100 Chart in 2017. Tell us about the making of the video and how did you feel when you received the news?

BTS: It was “Wow” at first when we heard the news, and we instantly started to talk about the behind-the-scene episodes of the shoot back in January. It was cold and bleak out in the field with over a hundred dancers making dance moves in sync. But it was fun. “Not Today” is definitely one of the most powerful songs yet and the trendiest choreography ever, and we’re very proud of ourselves for completing the mission again!

OTW: The BTS effect hasn’t slowed–in 2016 you were listed by Forbes as the most retweeted artist on Twitter, you have sellout arena concerts, advertising deals, and a devoted fan base. All of this brings pressure and expectation–what are some ways you deal with it all and stay humble?

BTS: We would be lying if we said there wasn’t any pressure in front of us. But we manage to get over it by openly talking about it with one another all the time. As you might know, we’ve been living together in the same house for the last five years, and we share literally everything even if it is stress and burden. BTS teamwork helps us get through the pressure and expectation in everyday life, and it also lets us stay humble as ordinary people, like guys next doors. We make casual jokes and give pieces of advice to other members so that we can still be down-to-earth, as we were before ‘BTS.’

OTW: What is in the works after the tour? What’s your definition of the ultimate success?

Rap Monster: We’ll be busy all year round even after the tour, with new albums coming up and advertising deals. My definition of the ultimate success is to continue to make good music and deliver great performance in order to have people listen to my creation as much as possible.

SUGA: My goal for this year is to cultivate my ability as a producer and write more songs. That’s my definition of success.

J-hope: We always have new, additional plans for tours, even after this tour. My definition of the ultimate success is becoming the iconic artist who always delivers the best show as a true artist. I want to create a show that’s “must-see” for everyone.

OTW: Which artists are on your Ones To Watch list?

BTS: J. Cole, Drake, dvsn, THEY., Frank Ocean, Mac Miller

OTW: Any message you want to send to fans right now?

BTS: We’d like to thank A.R.M.Ys around the world from bottom of our hearts.

We couldn’t have done what we’ve achieved without your love and support. We know it takes time and effort to vote, listen to the music, and watch the videos, and it means a lot to us.

We are wings for one another. Let’s fly together high up.

Once Upon A Time: Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin and Jared Gilmore exit

Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, and Jared Gilmore will not return to Once Upon a Time after season 6, EW has learned.

The news comes following the previously announced exits of Jennifer Morrison (read her exit interview here) and Rebecca Mader. Once Upon a Time, which was officially renewed for season 7 on Thursday, will now be centered on Regina (Lana Parrilla), Rumple (Robert Carlyle), and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue).

Goodwin, Dallas, and Gilmore, who are original cast members from the pilot, play Snow White, Prince Charming, and Henry Mills, respectively. Snow and Charming are the parents of Emma (Morrison), while Henry is Emma and Regina’s (Parrilla) son. De Ravin, meanwhile, joined the show later in season 1 as the iconic Beauty and the Beast heroine Belle.

Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis crafted a detailed statement about the many exits and the possibility they will return:

Words can’t do justice to what Ginny, Josh, Emilie, Rebecca and Jared brought to Once Upon a Time… but we’ll try… never have we had the privilege of working with a more talented group of collaborators. Each brought unique talent, incredible intelligence, and their own individual bit of magic as they gave life to these iconic characters.

Ginny reinvented Snow White for a modern audience – there was no way she would be stuck cleaning up after dwarfs, she created an iconic empowered heroine for the 21st century.

Josh mined the depths of Prince Charming – a character who in myth was just a ‘type’ but in his superlative interpretation became a complex man fighting for love and family.

Emilie took the character of Belle to a deep and soulful place, bringing great intelligence and warmth to the character, making her fiercely independent, strong willed but also an eternal optimist who saw only the best in all those she encountered.

Rebecca took us on a broomstick roller coaster ride as she re-invented the Wicked Witch of the West by finding the pain beneath the green. She made the character soar to incredible heights while always keeping her grounded and relatable.

And Jared literally grew up before the eyes of millions, from a child actor with enormous innate talent to a young man whose abilities continue to astound as he created a character who truly, as we say on the show, has the heart of the truest believer.

We can’t thank them enough for the hard work, dedication, and passion they delivered day in and day out. Without them there would be no Once Upon a Time.

As Once continues, this group will always be the beating heart of the show. And even though we won’t be with them every week, in a show about magic and hope, we fervently believe it won’t be the last we see of them.” [x]

anonymous asked:

Why do you like Ruby? As in what exactly made you like her

So many things. So so many, I just…Ruby is my ideal heroine/lead character. 

Here, let me explain…

The very first time we meet Ruby, she is standing in front of her mother’s gravestone. Even if we didn’t know that at the time, we knew it was significant. It already grounded her - it gave her character a base. As we’ve gotten to know more about her and seen her talk about/to her mother, it’s only shown more of how much Summer meant to her in such a short time. 

Ruby based her entire look of of her mother, because she wants so desperately to make this woman she barely was able to know proud. She’s perhaps idealized her mother, but that’s okay - it’s made her who she is. Ruby has a lot of baggage and I hope that as the show continues on, we get to see more and more of it. She grew up very lonely, mostly by choice. Not interested in social interaction and not very good at it either. That was incredibly relatable to me. 

Also, she is a bad ass. She is so tiny, but carries around this giant weapon that she loves so much and made herself which is amazing. I have these images of little Ruby up all hours of the night putting this thing together - working on it without breaks until Yang finally has to drag her away to eat and shower and sleep. Ruby’s drive to be a huntress is admirable and yet it’s built so much on this foundation of good. 

The most vital quality Ruby has is her heart. It’s huge and it’s pure. When she talks to Blake about why she wants to be a huntress, it’s perfect. Yes she loves hunting monsters, but she wants to keep people safe. She wants to do her mother proud and protect the innocent - to keep up that fight. Much like the passion with her weapon, Ruby is a character that would have to be dragged away from someone in need. She wouldn’t be able to help herself from helping someone else. Even at her own expense. 

Also, Ruby’s growth (and not just the hair growth which I also love and want MORE). When we first met her, she was a loner who only wanted to fight and be with Crescent Rose and a few weapons magazines. Still, Yang advised her to try and make friends and she did. She tried with the hardest subject she could find in Weiss Schnee and not only did they become friends (along with the rest of RWBY/JNPR/SSSN/Penny), they became almost a family and Ruby would do anything for them.

(ignore the text, old gif, all I have) This brings me to Penny and how important Penny is to Ruby’s story and why I love her. The significance of how Ruby accepted Penny spoke volumes. She didn’t hesitate, not for a second, in just accepting that Penny was a robot and that she wasn’t any less because of that. So much so that even Penny was surprised at how well she took the news. Ruby sees people as they are - good or bad. She accepts it and them and she tries her hardest to make them feel welcome. She did the same with Blake. Blake being a faunus only mattered to Ruby because she thought the ears were cute. That’s the only thing that changed in Ruby’s eyes when she found out. 

Resiliency is one of the greatest things a hero can have, and Ruby Rose has it in spades. She lost so much at the fall of Beacon, most of all her innocence that the world was, for the most part, as good as she wanted it to be. It would have been easy for her, at 15, to drop her fight and succumb to the fact that bad things just happen. She lost her team, her education at Beacon, her sister had even given up. Ruby didn’t - she was determined to continue to fight and to protect the world like she’d always wanted. Her innocence may, at times, be a flaw - but I also think it’s wonderful because it’s so filled with hope. I love hope when it comes to heroes. I want the hero that smiles and laughs and shows they care instead of pretending they don’t.  

She’s funny too, like one of the most underrated aspects of Ruby’s character is just how damn funny she is. A lot of that credit goes to Lindsay Jones, her voice actress, who delivers the lines so perfectly times and even the ones she ad-libs (like Blake enjoying tuna) just bring so much personality to her. Subtle things like answering Oobleck with a “yo” when asked who wants first watch or giggling like crazy at Jaune’s hoodie. She sees the joy in the world, even when it’s dark and I LOVE that. She’s a giant dork in the best way possible.

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to see where this girl is going and who she’s going to become. I want to see her develop all of her talents and be the leader and hero she’s destined to be. I love Ruby because she’s good, purely good and not an anti-hero or cliched dark/emotionless warrior. She’s a kid with a gigantic high impact sniper scythe who loves cookies and fighting monsters and will do anything to keep the people she loves safe.

*Not my GIF*

Whenever you ran into Seth Rollins, you always had to prepare yourself for his critique. It was never constructive criticism, just anything he could say to get into your head. Every word he said only added fuel to the fire that burned inside of you. Though, nothing compared to the rage that spread throughout your body when Triple H told you that you had to team up with Seth to further advance the Authority storyline. Not only that, but the so called “Future of WWE” insisted that he should train you to lessen the chances of you making the Authority look weak in the ring.

“Alright, show me what you’ve got he sneered, “And I swear, if you mess anything up, you’re in for it”

In that fixed second between the standoff and fighting, you met his gaze. You felt drawn to his alluring chestnut brown eyes…
In that following instant, you attempted to swing your fist, only to have your arm be caught.

"Didn’t see that one coming” he said in a sarcastic tone.

You gritted your teeth at Seth and your knuckles turned noticeably white from clenching them too hard. You lifted your free hand and delivered a hard blow to his jaw, enough to send Seth stumbling back with his face in hand. You took advantage of this and continued to hammer away, delivering multiple hits to his head. While Seth wandered aimlessly around the ring, you quickly climbed up the turnbuckles, ready to perform a crossbody. You took the leap of faith and much to your dismay, Seth caught you and slammed you onto the mat. As you rolled back into a corner of the ring, you were met with a jolt of pain that ran down your back. It took a few moments to completely catch your breath.

“Tired already? Can’t say I expected anything more, especially from you” Seth scorned.

You narrowed your eyes at him as he continued to throw insults at you.

“I didn’t think it was possible, but you hit softer than Reigns and Ambrose!” he laughed.

There was a momentary flare of anger that flashed in your eyes. Sure, Seth was your typical tall, dark and handsome guy, but a pretty face wasn’t going to get him out of this.

“That was just a warm-up” you said, cracking your knuckles.

Seth remained unimpressed. The blood rushed through your veins as you felt a kick of determination and anger starting to take over. Seth reached out his hand to help you up, but you had other things in mind. Instead of taking his hand, you gave him a hard kick to the abdomen. You showed Seth a condescending smile. You swiftly got back to your feet and charged over to him. You attempted to give him a few more blows to the head, but he caught your arms again.

“Now we’re talking!” Seth said.

You struggled for a bit, but eventually you gave him a headbutt. You grabbed Seth by the hair and tossed him into the turnbuckles. There you continued to deliver multiple blows to the head and added more kicks to the assault. Seth, however, slowly gained back his momentum and pushed you away from him. You tried charging back only to have him give you a mighty knee to your abdomen and push you face first back into the turnbuckles. You quickly spin around only to spot Seth taking off his shirt and tossing it outside of the ring. You silently gasped as you’re exposed to his chest. Saying that Seth had a muscular and well-toned body was by far an understatement. Love or hate the guy, his chiseled chest was drool-worthy.

“Now you’ve really got me riled up, Y/N!” he chuckled.

Seth charged at you, but you dodged and he ran straight into the turnbuckles.

“Don’t act surprised!” you called out.

Seth staggered to the center on the ring, holding his head again. You were certain the many blows to the head were catching up with him now. You proceeded to get into handstand position and give him a devastating headscissors takedown. You stood over Seth and gave him a menacing grin.

“Time to finish you off” you murmured to yourself.

You backed up into a corner of the ring, held the ropes and stomped your foot a couple of times, waiting for Seth to finally get up. As soon as he did, you shuffled and gave him a brutal superkick straight to the head. When you saw him lying unconscious in the middle of the ring, your first instinct was to get the pin. You straddled him and held down his shoulders.

“1… 2… 3!” you cheered.

Seth’s eyes darted open.

“What?!” he gasped.

“Don’t worry, Rollins” you teased, “I won’t tell anyone that you got beat up by a girl!”

The two of you shared a few laughs, but then you really looked at him. Sharp jawline, well-defined… What does this guy not have? You and Seth wrestled a bit more until he eventually rolled you over and ended up on top of you.

“You know what, Y/N? You’re actually much better than I thought” he admitted “Maybe we could have a second go later?…”

You blushed. Seth may have swooned you over this time, but you weren’t about to let him know that. Or for the time being at least…

Legacy, Phillip Hamilton x Reader

Six. He was a split image of his father, people would tell him. People three feet taller with tight corsets and large jewelry. He didn’t know who they were trying to impress, but he always wondered how heavy they must have felt with all that weight on their shoulders.

His parents would beam with pride, but that was years before the Reynolds incident. They were happy back then. Happier.

Thirteen. He had yet to acknowledge the girls who giggle when he walks by. It took him another few years to realize why they were giggling.

Everyday he felt heavier than the day before. He remembers the women with large jewelry and red lips. How they carried themselves under the gaze of their father or husband or brother. He feels that way whenever he asks himself, “What would father do?”

Sixteen. A girl asked if he would write her. He didn’t know what to say. He told her he would, but he never found the words to go on the paper. He wondered how his father did it.

“It’s not about the words. It’s about the girl.” His father told him.

He never wrote that girl.

Eighteen. He hadn’t written letters with, ‘My name is Philip-’ in years. Instead he neatly signed, ‘Philip Hamilton’ at the bottom of each letter. They were never to women, though he had a few options.

He would write to his aunts on special occasions, but he never felt the rush of writing he often watched his father experience as a child.

He wrote like he was running out of time. Sometimes Philip would sit at his father’s desk. There were distinct carves in the woods, where his father had a nice bout of inspiration. He’d trace the dents, watching the clock and wonder how many words his father would have spit out in the thirty, forty, fifty seconds that passed.

Nineteen. You reconnected with the Hamilton boy at a market on accident. You used to see him being escorted around ballrooms by his parents. He asked if he could write you. He’d never asked someone that before. You said he could, and that you would write back enthusiastically.

He rushed home that day, using his father’s desk and quill - the same desk and quill he had used to dig him into a hole regarding the Reynolds.

‘My name is Philip-’ He wrote for the first time in years. He almost crossed it out. He didn’t.

‘I am a poet, and I’m a little nervous but I can’t show it. I’m continuing a legacy, I’m afraid I can barely write to you legibly.’

He added many more dents to his father’s desk that night. He sealed the letter when it reached nine pages - which happened to be the age he first saw you - and realized he couldn’t wait for the post to deliver it to you.

He rushed to your home when the sun had been down for several hours. He felt stupid standing on your stoop, knocking vigorously. What would your servants say about the frazzled Hamilton boy showing up at your door unannounced?

You answered the door. He never believed in fate before that moment.

You hugged your cover up closer at the sight of him. You told him you sent your servants to sleep hours ago, that you couldn’t sleep and wasn’t sure why. Philip swelled with pride at the thought that maybe you had been waiting up for him.

He offered you his letter. You took in the sight of him. Ink-stained hands. Disheveled hair. Frazzled expression. To any outsider, he was a split image of his father.

You always thought he looked nothing like his father.

You absorbed his letter as fast as he had written it. You wondered if this is what Elizabeth Schuyler felt when she had met a young and spirited Alexander Hamilton. Absolutely and completely helpless.

He grinned sheepishly when you looked at him with something he used to see in his mother’s eyes at the thought of his father. He shook the thought from his mind. You weren’t his mother. He wasn’t his father.

Together, you were something completely new and different. You blew each other away.

anonymous asked:

ok let's pretend josh and the leech are "together" and let's pretend he doesn't care what the media say about him but now we are talking about his job which he says that he loves and some day wants to be a director i dont know if the gossip is true but man what a bad reputation for you for people wants to hire you in the future if your"girlfriend" cause such a mess on the set of your job.well down josh well down(i wonder what tick her now no that he she needs a reason)

Up to this point, Josh has always been known as a complete professional who takes his work seriously and respects the people that work with him - from the director to the craft service people. So what has happened that all of a sudden Josh feels it’s okay to shit on the hard-working people that are the backbone of his series?  Because having your girlfriend and pals on set joking around and being rude while everyone is trying to work is completely unacceptable. Please look at this:

You can clearly see Josh trying to work. Grips and other technical people are on hand setting up scenes, and Claudia thinks this would be a perfect time to flip off the fans and that blind about her being disruptive on set by - yes, being disruptive on set again. This is her “fuck you” to the fans, to the hard working crew and even to her “boyfriend” who is actually trying to concentrate and deliver his lines and make his series a success. How disrespectful is this to everyone?

I don’t know where this blind came from, but I have to believe this is true. Her conduct continues to show a disregard for anyone around her. 

Think about you at work trying to finish an important project and your co-worker brings in his “girlfriend” and friends and they are running around and laughing and taking selfies while your trying to get work done. For these people - the crew - this is their livelihood. This is how they put food on their table, pay their rent, put their kids through college, and they work 10 - 15 hours a day trying to get their work done, so they can go back to their families. And here we have a bunch of unemployed leeches goofing around while the crew breaks their backs. 

AND JOSH ALLOWS IT!

He repeatedly brings someone on set who is at the very least a distraction and at most a liability to production.  

Why does Josh allow this?

What happened to the Josh that cared?

This Josh doesn’t respect the opportunity he’s been given, is inconsiderate to Hulu, the producers, the writers and crew who have entrusted him with carrying Future Man, and he doesn’t respect his fans who have supported him all these years.

Claudia is clearly flipping off the fans and is gleeful to show herself on set.

Maybe Josh doesn’t care  Maybe he thinks Future Man is beneath him, and he’s just picking up a paycheck to continue to pay for poker and endless partying for him and his crew.  

Because if The Hunger Games was a “bit of a sell out,” then Future Man on a streaming service must be embarrassing to Josh. 

Every role he gets should be treated with gratitude and respect.  Instead Josh seems to not want to support it and doesn’t care if people in his life mock the work he is doing.

Maybe Josh is just too nice of a guy.  Maybe he doesn’t like confrontations.  But the bottom line is that at some point, you have to become an adult and address the people in your life who are taking advantage of you and hurting you and tell them that it will end or they will be eliminated from your life.  This is affecting his career, and people will not support his projects.  If he doesn’t care, why should we?

The Heartache Pg3


Bendy’s eyes were wide when she said this. In love? With Boris? How? He was confused. He shook his head and laughed.

Bendy:“What? Me? Nah, nah, nah, that can’t be doll, you’ve seen me going after women.” She gave him a look.“What?”

Molly:“Bendy, you obviously care about Boris more than anyone else. You love being around him-I’ve never seen you so happy! He’s so sweet to you too! You both really seem to care about each other, so why not?” She shrugged. Bendy frowned and rolled his eyes.

Bendy:“That’s crazy.” He stood up and walked away. She quickly followed him.

Molly:“Bendy, you just told me you couldn’t focus on your dancing, your eating or anything else!”

Bendy:“So?” She began to skip.

Molly:“That’s how you know when someone really loves you.” He shook his head.

Bendy:“Yeah right. I can’t be in love with him, what would he think if I told him I loved him?” He shrunk a bit more. Molly shrugged.

Molly:“Maybe give him hints.” She said. Bendy looked away from her. He was quiet for a while as they walked through the park.

Bendy:“What’s the point though? He’s already in love with someone else.” She shrugged.

Molly:“Yeah…actually…he broke up with her, so you have a chance to find out if he loves you more.” He stopped and she skipped past him. This didn’t seem like a bad idea. Might as well give it a shot and see if he really was in love with the wolf or not. He quickly caught up to her and she stopped.

Bendy:“Okay, what do I gotta do?” She smiled brightly.

Molly:“Just be you Bendy. He’s still here isn’t he? If he didn’t like you for you he probably wouldn’t have came back to see you.” She had a point there. Bendy slowly smiled. Maybe this wasn’t such bad plan after all.

Bendy returned home feeling a little calm. Boris was cooking up dinner for the two of them. The two ate together.

Boris:“So, got any plans before Abella shows up?” Bendy chuckled.

Bendy:“Nah, I wanna spend all the time just being with you. If this plan works, I have a feeling she won’t let us see each other much again.” Boris frowned.

Boris:“Aw, I’ll be sure to write buddy.” He said with a small smile.“Oh yeah, did you ever find out what happened to my letters?” He asked. Bendy shook his head.

Bendy:“Nope. Whoever was suppose to deliver them must’ve got lost or something.” He shrugged.

Boris:“Hm…” The two continued eating.“Hey Bendy?” He looked up at the smiling wolf.“Thanks for being such a good friend. I couldn’t ask for a better pal.” The demon chuckled.

Bendy:“Well don’t go saying that, Abella’s got all the money and she can get you just about whatever you want.” He shrugged.

Boris:“Yeah, but she can’t get me anyone better than you.” He said as he touched his hand. All of a sudden Bendy’s face heated up and his tail curled. He looked in Boris’s eyes and smiled softly.

Bendy:“Heh…come on, save the charm for her buddy.” Boris chuckled. He looked down at their hands. Boris’s hand was still on his.“You know I’m really gunna miss you when you leave again.”

Boris:“Well, do I have to leave right away if I’m with Abella again?” Bendy shrugged.

Bendy:“I think she’d like that. She can’t seem to stand being around me.” Boris smiled a little.

Boris:“Well maybe if you had a chair with ya she probably wouldn’t mind.” The two laughed.

Bendy:“Boris, really?” He laughed. He didn’t seem to notice that he was holding Boris’s hand now.

Boris:“Haha, yeah….but really I’ll try and keep in touch with ya, and if I don’t get any letters from you I’ll just come back here and see what’s going on. How’s that?” Bendy nodded.

Bendy:“Yeah…okay. That makes feel a little better. I just hope Abella doesn’t get too mad at ya.” Boris rolled his eyes.

Boris:“Well then, that’s her problem. I should be allowed to see people I love right?” Bendy’s eyes widened and he could feel his face getting hotter.“Golly, you alright there Bendy?” He chuckled.“Your looking a little heated up.” Bendy tried to hide his face.

Bendy:“Yeah, yeah, I’m fine. It’s just a little hot in here is all.” Boris let his hand go and picked up his plate to put it by the sink.

Boris:“Wanna watch some T.V?” He asked. Bendy shrugged.

Bendy:“Sure.” He put his own plate in the sink and the two went into the living room and sat down on the couch. They were going through channels trying to find a comedy show. Then their show popped up. Their very first one. Boris grinned.

Boris:“Oh! I remember this! It’s been so long since we’ve watched our shows huh Bendy?” Bendy moaned.

Bendy:“Aw, this one? I never really liked this one. You were good in it though! I was just not in it that day.” He said as he shook his head.

Boris:“What? Come on buddy, you were great!” He nudged him a bit. Bendy chuckled. The two watched some old episodes they did together over the years. Bendy and Boris had some good laughs together. Then one of their musical shows came up and Bendy frowned. Boris was still smiling though.

Boris:“I remember this one, I think this is the first love song you wanted to sing.” He leaned back and put one leg over the other. Bendy crossed his arms and leaned back .

Bendy:“Yeah…” He shrugged. Too bad the cigar box was empty. He would’ve loved one right about now. He thought. Bendy, on T.V., was standing on the stage wearing a bow tie that sparkled.

~Someday when I’m awfully low,
when the world is cold, I will feel a glow just thinking of you…
and the way you look tonight.~

Boris was nodding his head as he listened.

Boris:“I was so focused on listening to you sing, I almost forgot to play my clarinet.” Bendy’s arms lowered onto his lap as he watched
himself on T.V. sing.“I wanted to hear you sing like this for a long time when we were working together. You weren’t really out of your shell much those days.” Bendy didn’t answer him, nor looked at him. The memories rushed back to him like a bolt of lightning. Just one of those things you wished you could forget and stay forgotten. Boris looked at him, his smile faded a bit.“I was really scared that day.” Bendy clenched his teeth. He remembered.“Heh, I thought this was going to be the last love song you would ever sing. You weren’t too interested in singing these songs. ”

~Yes you’re lovely, with your smile so warm
and your cheeks so soft, there is nothing for me but to love you,
and the way you look tonight~

Bendy stayed silent. His tail curled around his legs. He looked at Boris and frozed when their eyes met. Boris almost frowned when he saw the look of guilt in his eyes.

Boris:“Bendy? Are you alright?”

Bendy:“You don’t remember that day do you?” He finally spoke. He raised a brow.“Oh come on!” He yelled angrily which surprised Boris at the sudden change of mood.“You really don’t remember all the things I said to ya that day? How I treated you for the last two weeks during those days?!” He was on his knees trying to look down at the wolf but they were at the same height. Boris struggled to remember anything else that happened that day.“I was a major jerk! I treated you like you were suppose to do everything for me no matter what I did! I was acting like a selfish jerk, you really can’t remember all that?” The things he said, the lies he told him. Boris seemed to slowly remember some things. He itched his head.

Boris:“Yeah, I remember now.” He said simply. Bendy laughed but not happily.

Bendy:“How are you this kind to me after all that?!”

                                          ~Flashback~

Bendy was smoking a cigar as he walked back and forth behind stage. Boris was walking towards him. He looked up and shot a glare at him.

Bendy:“There you are! About time! I thought I was going to have to cancel this how thing!” Boris frowned.

Boris:“Oh no! You don’t have to do that Bendy-”

“Don’t be late again, ya hear?” Bendy said as he pointed the cigar at him.“This is suppose to be my big day! We’ve got over two hundred people wanting to see me on stage tonight. I can’t have them thinking I’m some fraud! Do you?” Boris shook his head.

Boris:“No, of course not!” Bendy crossed his arms.

Bendy:“Well then why are ya goofing off somewhere else instead of being here prepared for the show?”

Boris:“I'am prepared. See?” He held out his clarinet.“I’m even dressed up in the outfit you told me to wear.” He was wearing a black and white dress. Bendy buried his face in one hand.

Bendy:“Boris….I told you to wear a suit and tie.” He shot a glare at him.“Just stay off the stage okay? They’re gunna think this is all a joke to them!” Boris’s ears lowered and he frowned.

Boris:“Gosh, I’m awfully sorry Bendy.” He said a bit sadly. Bendy sighed heavily.

Bendy:“Just…don’t let this happen again. I know we’re all for fun and all every now and then but this is not that night. This is the night where I finally show the world just how important I'am.” Boris raised a brow at him.

Boris:“I thought this was about ‘us’?” Bendy looked at him.

Bendy:“Well….yes? But no?” He shrugged.“You’re not the one on the stage tonight.” He said with a smirk. Boris’s shoulders dropped as Bendy turned around and heard the audiance cheering.“Remember, I’m counting on you to make this show happen! So is everyone else!” He quickly walked away.

Boris:“Golly….”

         ~End of Flashback~

Bendy:“For two weeks…I treated you like garbage. I didn’t understand why you still stayed, I thought you were just an idiot.” He looked down and was shaking his head.“But I was the idiot. I always have been. I didn’t see how much of a good friend you were. I broke that promise I made all those years ago.”

Boris:“Bendy.”

Bendy:“No, no. I can understand if you hate me Boris.”

Boris:“But Bendy-”

“I DON’T wanna hear lies!” Bendy said a little loud.“Just tell me how you really feel! Be honest!” He said as he grabbed his shoulders. Boris gently took his hands off and looked in his eyes.

Boris:“Bendy, you don’t remember EVERYTHING that happened do you?” Bendy blinked looking confused.

Bendy:“What…?” Boris smiled a little.

Boris:“You already apologized. Don’t get me wrong, I actually…was planning to leave. Until Ched almost ran me over with a train.You don’t remember that day?” Bendy shook his head.

Bendy:“Not really. All I remember was treating you like garbage.” Boris shook his head as he chuckled.

Boris:“Bendy, I left that show because we got into a big argument. We already talked about this. You were going on about how it was my fault that you forgot your song you were singing for the last three days. All day and all night. I left and you were going to start the show with someone else. I was going to take a train home but Ched showed up and we got into an argument about money.
Telling me that you owed him a hundred dollars or whatever that greedy rat was going on about, and shoved me into the tracks. I hit my head hard on the metal bar and was knocked out. Next thing I remember, you were trying to get me to wake up and we were off the tracks. The train was ruined. You wouldn’t stop apologizing to me for three days after that. ” Bendy was quiet.

~With each word your tenderness grows, tearing my
fear apart… And that laugh that wrinkles your nose, it touches my
foolish heart.~

Bendy:“So….what do you think of me now?” He hesitantly asked. Boris chuckled and shook his head. He raised a brow.

Boris:“You really wanna know?” Bendy swallowed. After a minute passed he grabbed Bendy’s arms. The demon gasped as he was pushed down
on his back on the couch and the wolf gave him a mischievous smile.

Bendy:“B-Boris?” His face felt warmer than before and he was unprepared for what happened next.

~Lovely, never, ever change. Keep that breathless charm. Won’t you please
arrange it? 'Cause I love you…Just the way you look tonight.~

The wolf slid his hands down to the demon’s sides and began to tickle him. The demon burst into laughter. He tried to get away but Boris kept pulled him close and tickling him.

Bendy:“Oh yeah?” He threw himself onto the wolf and began tickling him. The two began to laugh as they tickled each other. Though Boris seemed to be able to tickle him the most.“Okay! Okay! I give! I give! Hahahaha!” Boris finally stopped tickling him.

`And that laugh that wrinkles your nose, it touches my foolish heart.
Lovely, don’t you ever change. Keep that breathless charm. Won’t you
please arrange it? 'Cause I love you…just the way you look tonight.~
~Mmmmm~

Just as Bendy was catching his breath, Boris licked his cheek. Bendy looked at him with wide eyes. Boris was smiling warmly at him and the look in his eyes, he’s never looked at him that way before. Bendy slowly smiled and chuckled.

~Just the way you look tonight.~

Bendy:“….Boris.”

Boris:“Mmhm?”

Bendy:“….I-” There was a loud banging on the front door. The two sat up right away. Boris got up and quickly walked towards the door. When he opened it, his eyes widened.

Boris:“Abella?” Bendy’s heart dropped when he saw her. She was smiling brightly at the wolf and threw her arms around him. Bendy clawed the couch leaving scratch marks on it and clenched his teeth.

Abella:“Hello my sweetest flavored pie! It feels like it’s been forever since we last saw each other!” He took a step back but she took a step closer quickly.“When I read all your letters I felt like I was falling in love with you all over again!” Boris’s ears lowered.

Boris:“Oh…really?” She nodded.

Abella:“Of course my precious love pup!” She said as she cupped his face in her hands and pulled him in for a smooch. Bendy’s jaw dropped along with his head. It bounced off the floor and rolled away. The body slowly fell backwards and fell on it’s back on the hard floor. Boris gently pushed her back.

Boris:“Uhh, Abella, you actually came?”

Abella:“Yes! I just couldn’t wait any longer. My heart would not stop singing your name.” She threw her arms around him again and began to kiss him over and over. Bendy, in the corner, watched them and he growled low. He never felt this way before. His body walked over to him and picked his head up placing it back onto his shoulders. He wanted to speak, wanted to tell her to leave, but he waited for what Boris had to say. The demon crossed his arms. Boris gently pushed her back and tried to catch his breath.

Boris:“Uhm…that’s good and all….uhmm….oh golly…” He itched his head. She frowned.

Abella:“What’s the matter darling? I thought this was what you wanted.” He made a look of guilt and looked at Bendy. The demon blinked. He rolled his eyes and walked up to them.

Bendy:“I’ll tell her then.” She furrowed her brows at Boris.

Abella:“Tell me what?” She asked as she crossed her arms. He smiled sheepishly. Bendy smirked at her.

Bendy:“Look, you two had fun and all but Boris already found someone.” He said this as he walked her to the front door.

Abella:“What?! Who?!” He grinned at her.

Bendy:“Me!”

Abella:“Wha-” Bendy slammed the door shut and he walked away feeling better. Boris’s ears were down.

Boris:“I kinda expected you to do…something else. That seemed a little harsh don’t ya think?” Bendy shrugged.

Bendy:“Who cares? She shouldn’t have kept ya waiting for so long right?” He sat down on the couch. Boris couldn’t help but stare at the door.

Boris:“I think we should check on her just to be sure she’s okay.” Bendy sighed and looked at him.

Bendy:“Boris you sweet, sweet wolf, she’ll be over it in no time. Now come on over here and watch T.V with me.” He said almost sweetly as he held his arms out to him.

Boris:“Uhh….I dunno, I’m getting chills down my spine-” The door flew open and he spun around only to see Abella glaring at him. She stood in front of him with crossed arms.

Abella:“So that’s it then? You’re leaving me for that thing?” She pointed a finger at Bendy.

Bendy:“Well, I never!” He kept himself from smirking.

Boris:“Well…I was going to…well I mean….you see…” He wasn’t sure what to say. He already felt bad enough that she found out this way.

Abella:“You know, I was really hoping you would of kicked him out by now.” Bendy gasped.

Bendy:“I knew it!” He said out loud.

Abella:“But instead you fell for his lies and trickery! He’s a devil hun! Of course he’s going to lie to someone so sweet and innocent like you.” Bendy glared at her.“What makes you think he’s changed? You told me he’s hurt you before!”
Bendy frowned and looked at Boris. The wolf crossed his arms.

Boris:“He’s a changed demon, he’s always has been.” Abella stomped her foot.

Abella:“Why are you being so stubborn? It’s happening all over again! I’m trying to help you from making a big mistake! He’s evil! Look at him! The horns and the tail!” Bendy waved his tail around like a cat.

Bendy:“What’s wrong with having horns and a tail?” He asked with a smile.

Abella:“He also has a floating head!” Bendy shrugged.“Please don’t do this to us Boris.” She took his hand.“Please, just get rid of him, for me.” She asked sweetly as she looked in his eyes with a warm smile. Boris looked at Bendy who was giving him a pleading look.

Bendy:“Bori?” He said. The wolf looked away and they were quiet for a long time. She gently lowered his head to make him look at her.

Abella:“Everything will be just fine without him. I promise.” She whispered. Boris swallowed. He sighed and picked Abella up bridal style. Abella smiled triumphantly. Bendy’s eyes widened.

Bendy:“B-Boris?!” He heads out the front door. Bendy jumped over the couch and followed them outside.“Boris!” He walked to her car parked behind his truck.

Abella:“I knew you would make the right choice my sweet.” She said as she kissed his cheek.

Bendy:“Boris! Don’t-don’t leave me buddy! I’ll change! I swear! I won’t smoke so much anymore! I’ll come home earlier! I’ll stop chasing women!” He dropped to his knees.“I know I’m a screw up! I’ll do whatever it takes for you to stay!” He begged. Boris had placed her in the driver’s seat. He leaned down with his arms leaning on the door so they were eye-to-eye.

Boris:“Drive safely okay?” He said with a sweet smile. She frowned and gave him a wide eyed look.

Abella&Bendy:“WHAT?!”

Abella:“But I don’t understand!” Boris shrugged.

Boris:“Well, me neither. I’m not like everyone else, Bendy is a good guy. I actually try to understand him. He’s a good friend most of the time. He makes mistakes, but so does everyone else. I’m being a good friend by helping him out when he needs it and he does the same for me. He’s a devil, yeah, but not like any devil I imagine he would be. He learns from his mistakes.” He walked over to Bendy and helped him up.“Bendy, I love you just the way you are.
There’s nothing wrong with a little mischief every now and then.” He winked. Bendy smiled and he laughed.

Bendy:“Aw! I knew you wouldn’t leave!” He threw his arms around him.

Boris:“Bendy, you don’t have to stop doing all that stuff y'know.” He said as he hugged him back. Bendy looked up at him.

Bendy:“Oh good, I’m not ready to give up my sweet cigars Bori.” He chuckled.“But I WILL stop chasing women. Who needs em eh?” He giggled.
Abella sighed heavily and started her car. She drove away after giving one last glare at Bendy. The two watched her leave until her car disappeared.“Glad that’s over huh buddy?” Boris looked at him and nodded.

Boris:“Hey Bendy?” He said hesitantly as they walked back into the house.

Bendy:“Yeah buddy?” He said with a smile. He almost frowned when he saw the look of guilt on his face.

Boris:“I, heh….have a confession to make.” Bendy raised a brow.

Bendy:“Oh?” He crossed his arms and smiled.“Shoot.”

Boris:“….I was kinda….trying to get you jealous at first.” Bendy gasped giving a dramatic pose.“When I first met Abella? I just wanted to get your attention. But I just thought you weren’t interested in me like that. You just saw me as a friend.” Bendy walked over to Boris and put one arm around him and pulled him close.

Bendy:“Aw Bori, I can’t be mad at ya. I was actually planning on trying to get you to forget about Abella anyway if she ever did come around.” The two laughed and Boris hugged him.

Boris:“So Bendy. Got any plans for tomorrow?” Bendy grinned.

Bendy:“Well I was planning on taking a certain wolf out on a date tomorrow night after we spend the day having a nice picnic at a park, or go to the beach with Molly and him.” Boris grinned.

Boris:“Sounds like a good plan to me!” He kissed his cheek and his bow tie began to spin as his face grew warm. He began to giggle.

Bendy:“Aww.”

Abella was sitting at a bar taking a few strong drinks. She sighed as she buried her face in her hands.

Abella:“Oh Boris….what if he’s got you in some kind of spell?”

“Sorry, did you say; 'Boris’?”

The sad poodle looked up and saw an old rat holding a cup of wine.

Abella:“Yes? Do you know him?” She asked. He nodded.

Ched:“I know he likes to spend time with that devil on his shoulder.” Her eyes widened.

Abella:“You know Bendy?” He nodded.

Ched:“Yes. He causes more trouble than you think! I can’t stand him!” He growled.“He causes me so much money! He’s a bad influence on my niece too!” She gave him a look of worry.

Abella:“Goodness…” She said softly.

Ched:“I know a way to get rid of him for good though.” Her eyes lit up. He grinned. He took out a bottle with the words PURE WATER on it.“With a reasonable price, you’ll get rid of that devil for good and you’ll have Boris all to yourself. She hesitated.

Abella:"But…Boris really seems to care about Bendy. To go far to even say he loves him.” Ched’s eyes widened and he made a disgusted look.

Ched:“Come on! Don’t be ridiculous! A devil? In love? He’s just using him for his evil plans.” Abella blinked.

Abella:“What evil plans?” Ched looked around making sure no one was listening and then he leaned closer.

Ched:“Everyone else may have fallen for the devil’s charm but I’m tellin’ ya the truth here sweet heart. He wants the souls of the innocent.” She almost didn’t believe him but then again, he was a demon.“I’d go after him myself, but I’m old and not quick enough as I used to be.” She stared at the bottle for a long time. She pulled out her purse and pulled out a hundred dollars. His eyes almost popped out and he started to drool. He took it and grinned.“Pleasure doing business with you.” He gave her a whole bag of PURE WATER. She took it and left without another word. She looked down at the bag and sighed.

Abella:“Don’t worry honey. I’ll get you out of this mess.” She said to herself. She got in her car and drove off.

anonymous asked:

Med writers are so stupid, seriously that our Jay would cogitate going to a party with Natalie? gosh, exhausted from those crossovers that don't maintain the character's coherence.

Jay had no intention of going with Nat. He was setting his brother up/ kicking him in the ass/ knocking some sense into him/ waking him up/ trying to get him to straighten out his shit, whatever phrase you want to call it. I’m the first to call the writers out for their lack of continuity between shows and bazaar and unnecessary use of Jay on Med (also for screwing with his back story) but Jay was doing Will a favour here. Jay was fully aware of Will’s feelings for Nat.

Literary folks, Jay Halstead delivered your Manstead on platter for you. Nothing gets a guy to wake up faster than his little brother pretending to show interest in the girl he likes.

I don’t think some people understand what queer baiting is...

I see a lot of non-johnlockers (and some johnlockers) screaming about how “moftiss have said for years they weren’t writing johnlock!!! you weren’t baited!!!” and I’m just like…thats not how it works….It actually upsets me to see queer people echoing this sentiment too (fyi I’m gay). Ship whatever the fuck you want but if you’re denying the queerbaiting I’m side-eyeing the hell out of you. Queerbaiting isn’t about what the writers said about their intentions for the text. It’s about what actually happens in the text.

What happens is multiple occasions of people assuming John and Sherlock are romantically involved, what happens is John and Sherlock being put in scenes and situations that (if one of them were a woman instead) would be considered to be loaded with romantic/sexual tension, what happens is John sharing almost word for word the same lines with Molly who is clearly portrayed as being unrequitedly in love with Sherlock. I could go on and on about what actually happens in the text and the thing is, regardless of what you ship, there is no denying that there is a homoromantic subtext portrayed throughout the entire show. Many fans quit the series early on due to comments made by moftiss that then seemed to indicate to them that they were being queerbaited. Others chose to believe that a writing team, one of whom was a proud gay man, couldn’t possibly be queerbaiting them and instead they were building to a culmination of the relationship being textually canonised (finally!).

If you want to continue to throw out the argument that “they’ve denied it for years you’ve not been baited” then I would ask you to consider Mark’s comment: “I find flirting with the homoeroticism in Sherlock much more interesting”. If you’re so hung up on the idea of what the writers have actually said then that quote right there is confirmation that they were queerbaiting the whole time. Intentionally putting homoerotic/homoromantic tension into your show only to end up not delivering on it is queerbaiting. Like thats literally it. Mark has admitted it with that quote regardless of whether he is even actively aware thats what he was doing. I’d go as far to suggest that he didn’t even understand how serious the issue of queerbaiting is taken now given his age and experience with queer media in the past, possibly even felt he was being progressive. That doesn’t change the fact that it was queerbaiting. It doesn’t change the fact that queer fans were baited with the possibility of a romantic relationship between Sherlock and John and were instead delivered the biggest het fest in the entire show run.

tl;dr the argument that because moftiss said johnlock wasn’t becoming canon somehow means queerbaiting didn’t happen is ridiculous because of what textually did happen on screen.

foreshadowing in the buffyverse (part 2)
dawn’s arrival in to the world and buffy’s exit from it

This is one of the more well known examples of foreshadowing in the show but also the most intricate. Dawn’s presence is first hinted at in 3x22 (“Miss Muffet”) by Faith and is then referred to as such again by one of Glory’s victims in 5x2. The 730 stands for the number of days in two years. Two years pass exactly between this episode and 5x22 (withing the show) when Dawn is destined to die (hence the countdown). This number shows up on Buffy’s clock in 4x22, however Tara points out that it is “completely wrong” as one year has passed and now only one year remains of the “countdown”. Faith mentions “little sis” in a dream in 4x15. Both these scenes take place in Buffy’s bedroom which is the first place the audience ever sees Dawn. And Tara’s warning (originally intended to be delivered by Faith for continuity) “be back before Dawn” is given in the previous episode to Dawn’s first appearance. Faith is also responsible for foreshadowing the time of Buffy’s death. During the bodyswap of 4x16, Faith uses a credit card (either Buffy or Joyce’s), with the expiration date of May 2001. Buffy’s death takes place in the same month of the same year and this episode (5x22) aired on May 22 2001, almost 730 days (so roughly two years) after 3x22 first aired on television.

Once Upon a Time Bosses Confirm Six Total Exits: 'We Fervently Believe It Won't Be the Last We See of Them'

By Matt Webb Mitovich

Capping a week in which Jennifer Morrison unexpectedly bid Once Upon a Time adieu and Rebecca Mader announced her own exit, the ABC series’ creators have stepped forth to confirm six total departures.

As hinted in recent weeks and now made official, the fantasy series will move forward in Season 7 with longtime cast members Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle and Colin O’Donoghue, in addition to new additions Andrew J. West (The Walking Dead) and Alison Fernandez (Jane the Virgin), both of whom debut in the opening frames of Sunday’s two-hour season finale.

Meaning, original cast members Ginny Goodwin, Josh Dallas and Jared Gilmore, plus Emilie de Ravin (who made her debut midway through Season 1), will not be returning as series regulars.

“Words can’t do justice to what Ginny, Josh, Emilie, Rebecca and Jared brought to Once Upon a Time… but we’ll try,” series creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis said in a statement. Then, going actor by actor:

“Ginny reinvented Snow White for a modern audience – there was no way she would be stuck cleaning up after dwarfs. She created an iconic empowered heroine for the 21st century.

“Josh mined the depths of Prince Charming – a character who in myth was just a ‘type’ but in his superlative interpretation became a complex man fighting for love and family.

“Emilie took the character of Belle to a deep and soulful place, bringing great intelligence and warmth to the character, making her fiercely independent, strong-willed but also an eternal optimist who saw only the best in all those she encountered.

“Rebecca took us on a broomstick roller coaster ride as she re-invented the Wicked Witch of the West by finding the pain beneath the green. She made the character soar to incredible heights while always keeping her grounded and relatable.

“And Jared literally grew up before the eyes of millions, from a child actor with enormous innate talent to a young man whose abilities continue to astound as he created a character who truly, as we  ONCE UPON A TIME say on the show, has the heart of the truest believer.”

All told, Kitsis and Horowitz avowed, “Never have we had the privilege of working with a more talented group of collaborators. Each brought unique talent, incredible intelligence, and their own individual bit of magic as they gave life to these iconic characters. We can’t thank them enough for the hard work, dedication and passion they delivered day in and day out. Without them there would be no Once Upon a Time.”

Nor will Once forever be without them, the producers hope. “As Once continues, this group will always be the beating heart of the show,” they said. “And even though we won’t be with them every week, in a show about magic and hope, we fervently believe it won’t be the last we see of them.

From behind you, a faint blip was heard and then the metallic, automatic door slid open, and although you couldn’t see, you knew very well who it was - even before he opened is mouth.

“How are we doing in here? Are we good?” He asked casually as he walked around the chair you were tied down to, a turned around to face you, an annoying, obnoxious little smirk on his face.

“Oh, we’re good. I’m still here, still doing fantastic. Just chilling.” You smirked back excessively, mocking his expression. “A little bored though. But then again, my brothers should be here to pick me up any second now.”

“Are you sure about that little lady?” Ketch asked with a drawl in his voice. “Because I surely haven’t caught a glimpse of your rednecks of brothers anywhere around here.”

“Oh, trust me, they’ll be here.” You retorted determinedly, eyes squinting at him.

Because, they would, right? You weren’t putting too much trust in them, right? Or did Ketch have a point, that they should’ve been here by now?

As on queue, the metal door gave out a screech as it was forced open, to reveal your brothers, your heroes. You looked over your shoulder and a relieved smile spread across your face as hope bloomed in your chest, and you released a breath you never knew you held. 

“Hey,” you mouthed in their direction, and as Dean hurriedly and dangerously made his way over to Ketch, Sam used a spare second to send you a smile.

“Hey.”

Ketch was surprisingly slow, fumbling to find a gun in the clean, minimalistic room. He had only brought needles - probably to do some sick experiment on you if you knew him right, and thank god your brothers showed up. Once he found one, Dean had already reached him, and delivered one serious punch over his face, sending the British Man of Letters to the floor. Very unprofessional, if you were to say it yourself.

Sam hurried over to you, and untied the ropes that held you down, as Dean continued to beat Ketch. In a way, it was kind of sickening, but he did deserve it though. Dean stopped soon enough, when he was sure the other man would stay down. 

You then got an idea, and handed the ropes over to Sam who immediately understood your thinking.

Within the minute, Ketch was not only on the floor, but now tied up as well. As for you Winchesters, you contently walked towards the door, leaving him there. But before you closed the door, you couldn’t resist, you stuck your head inside again.

“Hey, Ketch?” You called and received a groan in response. “Bite me.”

Then you grinned, and left. 

honestly Charlie Hides was boring af and there’s 2 things i wanna say:
1. If she was so eager to ‘represent’ for the older queens she should’ve fought with her nails and teeth in that lipsync to stay and continue w the game cause just showing up doesn’t count, ya know?
2. She delivered arguably the most bland lipsync of all time, so props to ha, mawma, at least she’s gon be remembered for that

Last goodbye

Sunday night was brutal.

Like so many, my heart broke. I sobbed so hard and so long on my couch that night that I gave myself I headache.

The moment that SUV exited the parking garage, my heart sank. I just knew this was the mission that Quinn wouldn’t survive. It was probably the way he spoke to Carrie in their final moments together. His pained pleas of “Do what I say,” and “Stay down.” These were not commands of a special ops solider in charge of the mission. These were the resolved pleas of a man who knew he wasn’t coming out alive. He knew. And Carrie knew. And yet I still found myself chanting, “No, no, no, no…” as the scene unfolded.

And when it came down to it - it was painfully sad because Quinn was so sad. At that point Quinn had given in to it all. Our man of steel, our Quinn was gone by the finale. Sure we saw small glimpses of him throughout the season, glimpses that gave us hope. But the showrunnes fucked us. Fucked Quinn.

In my opionion, They’ve been killing him slowly for two seasons now. When the season 5 finale aired last year, I sobbed just as hard as I did this past Sunday. At the time, I said my sadness was for both Quinn’s comatose state, which left his story in limbo and unresolved, and for the writers’ failure to deliver a plausible story for this amazing character. The once brilliant writing team was failing this show. I still believe this to be true.

Just as the show runners killed Homeland by keeping Brody alive for too long, they killed Homeland by ruining Quinn. They had an opportunity to make Quinn a strong, co-lead with Carrie and Saul back in season 4 but instead continued to push Quinn in the background, until season 5 when they beat up Quinn so ruthlessly his story became unbelievable.

I am bitter because I have always felt Gansa and his writers did not take advantage of Rupert Friend. Rupes created a character beyond what they hired him for and he did that with his talent. He turned his few, simple lines on a script into quiet, meaningful, powerful moments between two characters. He electrified the screen the moment he stepped onto it. Rupert MADE Quinn and he made us fall in love with Quinn.

And I am bitter because the showrunners did not rightfully honor Quinn in the end. I understand the idea that Quinn wouldn’t want a memorial or star on the wall, but they needed to give us, the fans, and Quinn more. You want to kill him off? Fine. But killing him off and then not honoring his character better? You just dismissed five seasons of an aamzing character and alienated half the Homeland fanbase. And fuck, Rupert deserved a better end! He was instrumental in saving this show back in season 2, and in my opinion, kept a large majority of its fans tuned-in these last few seasons.

At this point, all I can hope for is continued success and happiness for Rupert Friend.

As for Homeland -it’s too soon to tell if I can stomach watching it another season.
