HE’S STILL GENTLE IN 2015.  HELP M E

I saved the worst one for last.

twenty years from now my kid will come running into the room crying and screaming and throwing things onto the floor and I’ll stand by all horrified and ask over and over “what happened” and they’ll just look at me with betrayal in their eyes, throw the complete box set of avatar the last airbender at me and whisper, “you liar…zutara wasn’t endgame. HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN, HOW COULD SHE END UP WITH AANG what about all their chemistry” and I’ll get down real slow and hug them and stroke their hair as they sob. And then I’ll say emotionally, “But they’ll always be together…” Pause as I take a deep breath and place my hand over my heart, “in HERE”

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Why'd they just replace Marnie in the last Halloweentown? Like did they think no one would realize it? The actresses don't even look alike. If the problem was scheduling issues, why couldn't they just postpone the making of the movie? Why couldn't they keep her for one last film or just cut her character entirely? And don't even get me started on the forced relationship between her and Ethan. That came out of thin air.
  • Mephistopheles: Who broke it?
  • Everyone:
  • Mephistopheles: I'm not mad, I just wanna know.
  • Everyone:
  • Lil: *inhales* It was me, I broke it-
  • Mephistopheles: No, no you didn't. Sock?
  • Sock: Don't look at me, look at Jon!
  • Jon: What?! I didn't break it!
  • Sock: That's funny, how'd you know it was broken?
  • Jon: Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken.
  • Sock: .... suspicious.
  • Jon: No it's not-
  • Zachary: Excuse me, if it matters- Probably not but, Jojo WAS the last one to use it-
  • Jojo: What! I don't even drink that stupid crap!
  • Zachary: Then why were you next to the coffee maker?
  • Jojo: I use the wooden stirs to push back my cuticles, everyone knows that Zack!!
  • Lil: Everyone please stop fighting, I broke it, let me pay for it Meph!
  • Mephistopheles: No! Who broke it?!
  • Everyone:
  • Jon: *gets up and walks over to Mephistopheles, places a hand on his shoulder and says quietly* Meph, Prov has been awfully quiet-
  • Providence: *in disbelief* Really?!
  • Jon: Yes really!
  • Everyone: *starts yelling at each other at once*
  • Camera: *changes to interview cam*
  • Mephistopheles: I broke it. It burnt my hand, so I punched it.
Normal Girls VS Fangirls
  • Girl: Oh my God. I'm such a nerd! I've been spending so much time on Netflix lately, like you don't even understand! I'm such a fan!
  • Me: How many shows do you watch?
  • Girl: One. Gossip Girl, but like I was up for three hours watching it last night. All the way until ten o'clock.
  • Me:
  • Girl: What about you? What do you watch?
  • Me: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Sherlock, Merlin, Attack on Titan, The Big Bang Theory, Vampire Knight, Vampire Diaries, MARVEL Agents of SHEILD, The Walking Dead... Oh, yeah, and I've seen Gossip Girl too.
  • Girl:
  • Me: Don't even get me started on my ships.

honestly i’m so pissed rn. every other team has all the players show up to their STH event except houston. literally two (2) ✌🏼 players showed up to the season “kickoff party” for the dash and then they waived one. like seriously? and don’t get me wrong bc i love cari and steph and talking to them was great but last year we got to meet the whole team (except carli who had just been injured and went home). and don’t even get me started on the STH packages. 

like everyone is always talking about growing the women’s game but they don’t do anything. they don’t even try. you could walk around bbva stadium and you wouldn’t even know that a women’s team plays there bc it’s all dynamo.

I don’t know about you, but this scene will probably always be one of my absolute favourite performances of Mark Sheppard. His portrayal of Crowley growing ever more human and even crying is just freaking award worthy. Man… I really really liked Crowley’s S9/10 arc and his and Dean’s dynamic. :) This moment here and his “attachment” to Dean after all, I think, truly profoundly has changed Crowley to this day.

  • what she says: i'm fine

My take on how Riley realizes her feelings for Farkle.
  • <p> <b><p></b> <b><p></b> <b><p></b> <b><p></b> <b><p></b> <b></b> It takes place after GM Goodbye.<p/><b>Location:</b> The Matthew's Living Room.<p/><b></b> Riley's family and friends are having a party to celebrate the good news. Everyone is dancing. Riley sits on the bench at the kitchen table. She doesn't look happy. She stares at the ground. Morgan goes to her.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Riley, why aren't you celebrating?<p/><b>Riley:</b> (looks up to Morgan) I just don't feel like celebrating at the moment.<p/><b></b> Morgan sits next to her.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Do you want to talk about it?<p/><b>Riley:</b> I don't want to even think about it, let alone talk about it.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> If you change your mind, I'll be over there. You can always talk to me.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Thank you, aunt Morgan.<p/><b></b> Riley gives her a hug. Morgan walks back to the rest of the group. Riley walks to her room. Farkle stops dancing with Smackle and follows Riley.<p/><b>Location:</b> Riley's bedroom.<p/><b></b> Riley is sitting at the bay window. Tears are falling on her cheeks. Farkle walks in.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> Riley, are you ok?<p/><b></b> Riley wipes her face.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Yeah.<p/><b></b> Farkle walks to the bay window and sits next to Riley.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> Why are you crying?<p/><b>Riley:</b> I'm just emotional.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> It's more than that. I know you Riley. We don't lie to each other. You can talk to me about anything.<p/><b></b> Farkle puts his arm around her. She rests her head on his shoulder.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I know. But I need to figure it out on my own.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> I'm always here for you. Now and forever.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Thank, Farkle. Same goes for me. But I need some time to think about things alone.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> Ok.<p/><b></b> They both stand up and hug each other.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I love you Farkle.<p/><b>Farkle:</b> And I love you.<p/><b></b> Farkle walks to the door. Riley sits down and stares at Farkle as he is leaving. Farkle looks back and smiles at Riley. Riley smiles back. Farkle leaves. Riley starts to have tears falling down. She hears a knock on her door. She wipes her face again.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Come in.<p/><b></b> Morgan walks in.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Farkle sent me to check on you. He's worried about you.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I told him I'm fine.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> But obviously you're not. I'm not leaving until you tell me what's wrong.<p/><b>Riley:</b> You're gonna think I'm a bad person.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> I would never think that about you. You don't have a bad bone in your body.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Well, I think I'm a bad person.<p/><b></b> Morgan hugs Riley.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Just tell me what's wrong.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I don't know where to start.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Just start talking.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Lately I've been confused alot. I've been confused for a while.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Confused about what?<p/><b>Riley:</b> My feelings for Lucas. My feelings for Farkle.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Ok.<p/><b>Riley:</b> When Lucas and I started to date, I was really happy. He's my first love. But it feels like something is missing. A spark or something. I can't explain it. I love him, I do. But there are times when I feel that he doesn't get me. In the past when I was going through things, he wouldn't even noticed or he'll be the last one to find out. I don't think he does it on purpose, but it hurts. Sometimes I feel we are better off as friends than a couple.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> How does Farkle fit in all of this?<p/><b></b> Riley starts walking back and forth.<p/><b>Riley:</b> That's what I'm confused about. Farkle has always been my best friend. He's always just been there. I knew him as the goofy kid who had a crush on me and Maya. He wanted to take over the world. He used to wear turtlenecks. I missed those turtlenecks. He promised me and Maya that he would love us equally. He kept his promise. But there are moments when I see him in a different way and it terrifies me.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Why does it terrify you?<p/><b>Riley:</b> Because I think I could be falling in love with him. I look back on all the memories that we have together and I don't know why I couldn't see it sooner. We have great talks. We can talk for hours. We read each other really well. He puts my happiness above his. We both can tell when the other is lying. Today is the perfect example. He knew I wasn't ok, when I told him I was. There are so many things I wished I seen sooner. If I knew how I felt sooner, I wouldn't be in this mess. I'm in a relationship with Lucas. Farkle's in a relationship with Smackle. I don't want to hurt Lucas or Smackle. Plus, Farkle doesn't feel the same way. I can't let anyone know. I have to keep it to myself.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Can't you tell Maya?<p/><b>Riley:</b> No. I was the one who started the whole triangle dilemma. If I told her about my feelings for Farkle, not only did I take Lucas from her, but also Farkle.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> That's not what happened and you know it. Maya's your best friend. She would understand that your feelings changed. Sometimes what you feel for one person can just change. It's nobody's fault. It just happens. It's how you handle it, that makes you the person you are.<p/><b>Riley:</b> But I'm supposed to stay with Lucas. He's my first love. My mom was my dad's first love and they're still together.<p/><b>Morgan:</b> Riley, I love you but you're acting stupid.<p/><b>Riley:</b> What?<p/><b>Morgan:</b> You're not your parents. Just because they fell in love at a young age, and stay together for the majority of their life, doesn't mean you have to do the same. You are your own person. You had feelings for Lucas since you were 12. You can't expect to have the same exact feelings three years later. I'm not saying he's not the one for you, only you can decide that. But it doesn't have to be now. You're only 15.<p/><b>Riley:</b> What should I do?<p/><b>Morgan:</b> In my opinion, I think you should break up with him, if you have feelings for another guy. It's not fair to him, you or even Farkle if you stay with him. You need to be honest with Lucas.<p/><b>Riley:</b> What if he doesn't want to be my friend anymore?<p/><b>Morgan:</b> It might be awkward at first, but I think eventually you two will go back to being friends. Just think about what I said. It's not right to stay with him when you love Farkle. You're not a bad person. I love you.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I love you too.<p/><b></b> Morgan hugs Riley and leaves. Riley sits at the bay window. Lucas walks in.<p/><b>Lucas:</b> There you are.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Hi, Lucas.<p/><b>Lucas:</b> Are you ok?<p/><b>Riley:</b> I don't know. But we need to talk.<p/><b></b> The end.<p/></p><p/></p><p/></p><p/></p><p/></p><p/></p>

  • Person B: I just wanted... We were very close before that so... *wipes tears away*
  • Person A: You'll get hurt again. Don't. They don't deserve you, not as a friend and did you even look at that dildo sucker?
  • Person B: *raises their eyebrows*

WHAT THE FUCK AM I

SUPPOSED

TO

DO

WITH THIS

That is tiny Sougo with a cat. I repeat. Tiny Sougo with a cat. And Mitsuba and Hijikata with their commander leading the way. And then that is Sougo with a cat. Our sadistic little captain with a cat. An actual cat has approached evil Sougo to play with him, our supposedly heartless guy. Heartless my ass. Look at his face, I’m sure he’s so surprised in the best of the ways.

And then omg the way Kondo and Hijikata are looking back. Just like Mitsuba used to do when he was little, they make sure he’s okay, he’s still there and following them. And you know the worst? This is the last time we’re seeing then as Shinsengumi. After this, there’s no police in Edo anymore. They’ll be gone in an arc and it’ll break my heart and gintama please stop omg I won’t survive this

Okay so guys I had an idea and I’ve been venting to @fuckoversandfairytales and it’s getting out of hand. @synergygabriel spoose I require you to tell me I’m stupid and should drop this because I’m becoming obsessed.

  • Human!AU
  • Sam and Gabe are childhood best friends.
  • They’re attached at the hip by the time they’re 5.
  • Sam asks Gabe to prom, as friends, of course because how could popular, funny, outgoing Gabriel want anything more from shy, nerdy awkward Sam?
  • As to everything Sam asks him, he gets an “of course, kiddo,” and a brilliant smile
  • At the dance Bubblegum Bitch starts playing
  • “Come on, Gabe, this is your favorite song!”
  • Bubblegum Bitch ends and a slow song starts
  • Instead of Gabe leading them back to their table like Sam expects, Gabriel pulls him closer and just leans his head on his chest
  • “Yanno, I know you like me, kiddo”
  • And Sam’s heart just ///stops cuz gabe is gonna leave. Gabe can’t know it’ll ruin everything.
  • “so I don’t know why you haven’t made a move”
  • And Sam freezes. And Gabe just looks up at him. And then they’re kissing.
  • They both get accepted to Stanford,  and get an apartment together close to the school
  • *cute fluffy happy Sabe for a couple years*
  • Then
  • Gabe is late. Really really late. And won’t answer his phone. But Sam convinces himself he fell asleep at the library. Cuz he’s known to do that during finals week.
  • But Gabe still isn’t home in the morning, and he isn’t in classes
  • And Sam loses his /shit/
  • He goes to the police and there’s a huge search, years go by with no traces
  • Everyone gives up except Sam
  • Finally even Sammy can’t keep hoping, because it’s ////destroying him
  • Sam finally settles down and marries Jess
  • Compared to Gabe, it’s nothing, but he tries his damn best to be a good husband
  • They have a baby boy, and Jess insists they name him after Gabriel, and Sam agrees even though it breaks his heart every time he hears his little boys name
  • One night Sam wakes up to the sound of someone ///pounding on their front door
  • He gets up and rips the door open ready to s c r e a m because who the ////fuck would be pounding on the door at two in the fucking morning
  • but everything he was gonna say just dies on his lips, because only one person has those golden eyes, even though they’re almost swollen shut 
  • and then Gabe is talking and Sam just starts //sobbing cause that’s not his Gabe’s voice and what the ///fuck has his angel been through these last few years cause he looks ///////horrible
  • “Heya kiddo, ja miss me?”

anonymous asked:

what is your favourite jongtae moment? :D

oh darling, how can i ever choose just one?

like, pretty much every moment where they look at each other with starry eyes is a favourite moment of mine

or every time they touch the other’s face for whaterver reason

or all those times where jjong is obviously obsessed with taemin’s glorious ass

or when taemin casually touches his boyfriend hyung like it’s nothing

or when they look like a couple (with kinky sex toys)

or when taemin practically sucks on jonghyun’s fingers when jjong feeds him

or when jjong is ‘whispering’ at taem (aka fucking his ear with his tongue probably)

or when they are holding hands

but in all seriousness, if i had to chose JUST ONE, it’d be that ridiculously cute moment back in 2011 during the idol athletics where jonghyun puts sunscreen on taemin and then they trim each other’s leg hair. first of all, because the sunscreen thing is something my best friends did with their boyfriends ALL summer last year and i find it hilarious

and second of all, it’s just- both of those things show how comfortable they are with each other, how much they’re used to touching and taking care and looking out for the other. not necessarily in a ship-y way, you know, but just two people who are ridiculously close. and whether someone ships them or not, no one can argue against the fact that jonghyun and taemin are very close

A brief foray into real-world topicality...

This will be a brief note on the May 23rd Isla Vista killings, so if you can’t deal with that at the moment, just skip your eyes to something more life-affirming, like nearly anything.

Here are some asterisks to space things out and give you time to make the jump.

* * * * *

Here are some more.

* * * * *

Okay. If you’re still with me after two asterisk hedgerows…

I’m desperately curious what would have happened if Elliot Rodger, prior to his clearly goddamn self-avowedly misogynistic murder spree, had instead posted a Youtube manifesto containing any variation on the phrase “Allāhu Akbar.”

Would there have been immediate, widespread declarations that he was a “lone psychopath” and an “obvious madman” who surely didn’t speak for all Muslims?

Would there have been widespread expressions of sympathy for the poor guy for feeling so surrounded by a culture he considered hostile that an act of mass murder was his ultimate reaction? How about thousands of people tweeting that Americans should have just given into a few of his religious demands every now and then to keep him appeased?

Actually, I’m not desperately curious. None of that would have happened. The media narrative would be somewhere between “round up everyone in a turban” and “nuke Mecca.” We’d be hearing about it for fucking years.

Or maybe it was fucking video games. I bet we’re going to be seeing that one making the rounds again, too.

A dude straight up films a video in which he says, “I hate women and part of what I’m about to do is start my own personal war on women.” And then he does it. And there are still people lining up with straight faces to insist we need to get Sherlock Holmes out of cryo-storage, or something, to impartially sift the evidence and find out what truly made the guy tick. Fucking hell, I’m 36 and this shit makes me feel like I’m 685.

Just imagine if that video had contained the phrases “and Mohammed is his Prophet” or “down with the 1%.” The media narrative would be a call for unrelenting crackdowns on hundreds of thousands of people who’d never even heard of Elliot Rodger. I would feel perfectly safe betting every penny I have in the bank, plus my library, my cat, and all of my internal organs on this. I could not possibly lose.

But of course, this was merely a case of a man overtly discussing and executing a murder spree based on contempt for women, so an orderly queue has already formed for people trying to minimize it, laugh it off, or pretend this guy fell from the sky five minutes before he started shooting.

Good god, a UK tabloid dubbed him the “Hunger Games Assassin” because his father was an ASSISTANT SECOND UNIT DIRECTOR on that movie. In a way, Elliot Rodger, wherever he is, has to be severely disappointed. He so clearly wanted to be known as some kind of ultimate bad-ass woman killer, and the ironic sexism of our slipshod media is already working overtime to deny him that last wish.
