and he knows whose army it is

You don’t have to ship Destiel, but you do have to admit, Dean and Cas’ relationship… it’s different.

The writers, the producers, the directors… they all had a part of this. They easily could have portrayed Dean and Cas’ relationship differently than what they have. They easily could have had Cas have the same exact relationship with Sam as he does with Dean. But he doesn’t. Dean and Cas share a more profound bond. Enough so that an angel, fresh to human emotions and concepts, was able to grasp the fact that his relationship with the older Winchester was different than his relationship with the younger one. It’s always Dean seen alone with Cas. Think about the times you’ve seen the two alone versus the times you’ve seen Cas alone with Sam. And the people working on the show chose to do this. Dean and Cas are the ones they focus on, and they’ve focused on it time and time again. They share their doubts and fears and failures and hopes. They had Cas always come back to DEAN, and vice versa. Dean was the one that argued with Sam and Bobby when they thought Cas was working with Crowley. Dean was the one that fought tooth and nail defending Cas, because there’s no way he could ever believe that Cas could betray him. Dean is the one that held on to Cas’ trench coat after he died, just hoping, praying that his angel would come back to him. Dean spent a year in Purgatory searching for Cas, when he easily could have left with Benny, only to find that the reason Cas fled was to protect HIM. Dean was the one that admitted that the WInchesters needed Cas, only to then emphasize that he specifically needed Cas. Cas was able to break through mind control for DEAN. Even though he had practiced killing duplicates of Dean a million times over, when it came down to the real Dean, he couldn’t do it. Cas chose Dean over an entire army. Cas chose Dean over heaven. Cas chose Dean over everything else, so often that he was even called out for it. Cas admitted that he loved all of the Winchesters, but whose facial expression did the camera focus on? Dean’s. Just like when Cas came back in 13x05, it’s DEAN’S reaction the camera focuses on the moment they make eye contact. 

Things are just DIFFERENT between Dean and Cas, even Sam knows it. Sam asks DEAN what they’re going to do with Cas’ body, because he feels like he doesn’t have a say so. He knows that his brother’s relationship with Cas is completely different that his. Sam, without a doubt, loves Cas too, but he knew it was different. It’s the reason why Cas always comes when Dean calls. It’s the reason why Cas threw away everything for the older brother. It’s the reason that Dean throws up Cas whenever Sam can’t focus on losing anyone but their mom. It’s the reason why Dean can’t give Jack a chance. 

So if Sam Winchester, the person that knows Dean better than anyone, sees that there’s something DIFFERENT between his brother and Cas, why wouldn’t we?

Background of characters?

Sooo I am very curious on each characters backstory so here is a list. I’d love to receive more thoughts on this as well! 

So far we know Neil is jewish with two parents who are divorced from an unknown reason. His dad is very dorky and nerdy while his mother, from comments made by Neil, is his preferred parent. 

Dolph Houston is american, but was raised in a German army base and whose surname pertains to Scotland. No need to mention who he was modeled after.

David is 24 and one of the only characters alongside Max to have his age confirmed. He is also potentially Canadian after season 1 episode 6 with the comment made about his “papers” by Dolph. It is David’s reaction that leads me to believe this. We know after the end of season 2 that he isn’t blind to the realities of the world but rather chooses to see the bright side of things and tries to get others to see the same. 

Max is of Indian descent with parents who are potentially abusive. He flinches back when people get in his face, he is already cynical at the age of 10 for pete’s sake and by the end of season 2, we know for a fact that they practically abandoned him at the camp. 

Gwen I am unsure on. I looked up all her nicknames and most of them originate from Welsh (aka Britain). We know she is a fan of Doctor Who and “wants to have his British babies.” But her skin ton has me a bit unsure until I looked up anglo-indian, which is a mix of Britain and India. Now this is just heavily perceived and in no way accurate without confirmation. (Although I can definitely see her being Hispanic as well.)

Harrison has made hints multiple times that he can use actual magic but when he makes objects disappear, he has difficulty bringing them back. By the finale of season 2, we learn his parents are terrified of him because he made his brother disappear. 

EDIT: Okay, Harrison is totally Bill Cipher reincarnated as a human.

Nerris - I didn’t realize she was female until the last episode and I feel bad, but she wasn’t a character I cared for until the finale. After having seen her parents, I realized her entire family is made up of cinnamon rolls. They are the one and only perfect family. 

Preston Goodplay lives with his grandma and tends to shout a lot because of her bad hearing. His last name as far as I can tell is just purely a play on words, or a pun if you will. 

Nikki used to be a Flower Scout but after her traumatic experience of being driven out, she now seems to have an illness whenever she is near anything prim and proper. And her mom is a gold digger. Enough said.

Neil Armstrong Jr. “Space kid” - has always been so bazaar with his obsession with space but we later learn it is because his Uncle is Buzz Aldrin and his great grandpa is the actual Neil Armstrong. As his uncle commented: “Rocket fuel runs through his veins!”  For those don’t know, Aldrin is an American engineer and astronaut who was the second person to land and walk on the moon.

Gaylord Nurfington “Nurf” was sent to the camp to enroll for behavioral correction while his mom was in jail. He acts crude and bullies the other children, but you learn the reasoning for his behavior is because he was stereotyped into being a problem child at a young age. He was sent to a facility to work out his problems, only to become worse by the influence of other kids. it is also revealed that he explored his sexuality in the past with a boy named Chris.

Meredith Miller "Ered“ - Ered is stereotyped into the cool kids category. It is confirmed she uses people for her own gain and performs poorly in school, hence the bad grades. Ered’s parents are two male agents of the government that have been keeping an eye on Campbell to validate his legitimacy.

Cameron Campbell is the founder of Camp Campbell, which he named after himself. He is a wanted man by the federal government and is always on the run. Apparently he is rich and powerful and at one point had been the prime minister of Thailand. 

jermy Fartz - Nope.

That klance bodyguard au we love

I’ve been non-stop thinking about that klance bodyguard au and I wanted to write my own version but I’m not quite sure about how I want it to go, so here is just some random stuff I was thinking of including!!

-lance is the altean prince
-Keith is a member of the blade of marmora
-altea and BoM are allied in the fight against former black paladin zarkon and his galra army
-Keith is assigned to be prince lance’s bodyguard after an attempted kidnapping
-lots of langst in the beginning
-his father basically ignores him and heavily favours his sister, and he feels like he can never live up to his expectations
-basically just a sad lonely boy hiding behind a bright smile
-he is pretty close to his sister tho, and he knows for a fact that coran adores him
-lance develops a crush on his new bodyguard right away b/c Keith is a hot af badass whose actually a closet cutie pie
-Keith immediately thinks that the prince is totally cute, but he’s kinda slow to pick up on emotions so it takes him forever to figure out his own feelings
-when he does it’s mutual pining city
-Keith refuses to start anything w/lance for the longest time because he’s the prince and is definitely off limits
-but lance is super persistent, esp when Keith admits to liking him too
-eventually Keith will cave b/c he’s weak when it comes to lance
-a secret relationship begins
-lance will probably tell allura b/c she’s his best friend, and she’ll tell him it’s a bad idea but she won’t rat him out
-siblings that ride or die
-still the pressure of being prince and being in love and not able to tell anyone is slowly getting to lance
-he knows what he wants but he isn’t sure how to get it
-finally he makes a decision and tells Keith that he wants to run away together
-at first Keith will refuse (just like when they first got together)
-but we’ve already established that Keith is weak, so eventually he agrees
-he doesn’t really have any strong ties to anyone anyways
-lance will write these super long and emotional letters to coran and allura, who both cry profusely after reading them
-the letter he writes to his father is a lot more formal, but after all this time of barely even being on his radar he’s not quite sure what to say
-they leave in the dead of night is Keith’s ship
-can’t forget that he’s still the best pilot anyone’s ever seen, which means he gets the best ride
-it’s sleek and silent, has a convenient cloaking mechanism, can open wormholes and travel faster than anything else
-that things his baby
-when they first leave they don’t really have a destination in mind
-their main goal is to just get as far away as possible
-when alfor finds out his son is gone he’s beyond pissed that lance would pull something like this during a war
-but as time goes on and there’s still no sign of him he becomes worried
-eventually he realizes his mistakes and is super guilty for pushing his son away
-as Keith and lance travel they keep a low profile and try not to attract too much attention
-they eventually come across earth, a planet tucked far away on the outskirts of the known universe
-they take a stealthy look and fall in love with the blue planet
-they also think it’s the perfect place to start over
-you aren’t supposed to interfere with any planet or race that hasn’t developed enough to discover space on their own, but since they aren’t planning on standing out here they think it’s fine
-they spend their first few months on earth in a secluded desert shack, using their advanced tech to learn as much about their new home as possible
-lance uses his altean chameleon ability to look human
-for stories sake I’m headcannoning that galra can use their magic to somewhat change their appearance
-it still surprises them both when Keith is able to easily change his appearance to look completely human (first clue to half-human Keith)
-they fake their papers (gotta make it look like they’ve always lived on earth) and apply to the garrison (it’s the closest school, and they applied on a whim)
-they both make it in
-Keith is obviously top of the class (after flying super high tech alien spaceships, the ones on earth are like child’s play)
-lance is second (he isn’t nearly as good as Keith but again, super high tech alien ships are way harder to fly than earth stuff)
-lance and hunk meet when lance sneaks away one night to raid the kitchens for a midnight snack and finds hunk already there
-they hit it off right away and become best buds practically overnight
-Keith also likes hunk right away when lance introduces him the next day
-he’s easy to get along with and doesn’t mind Keith’s quietness
-hunk thinks Keith is pretty cool, and practically writes him a sonnet when Keith helps him learn to control his stomach in the simulator
-after that they become a dream team, and shiro (upperclassmen) takes notice
-at first he just introduces himself to them and gives them little pointers, but after spending some time together they all actually become pretty close
-hunk and lance cry when shiro leaves for the Cerberus mission, and laugh when he promises to bring them back some space rocks
-all three of them are worried when news travels about the missing Cerberus astronauts
-not long after this pidge joins the garrison
-they get adopted into the group almost immediately
-she and Keith bond over their shared love of conspiracies (Keith discovered them back while he and lance were still in the desert shack and quickly became obsessed)
-her and lance shoot one liners back and forth
-they get really into it, and sometimes hunk has to physically cover their mouths to get them to stop
-her and hunk talk tech for days
-the self proclaimed science bros
-the whole group becomes sort of like a makeshift family
-eventually lance and Keith agree to tell them their secret
-hunk is shook
-pidge is so excited that it gets a little creepy
-but they’re loyal so both agree to keep their secret
-not long after the reveal shiro crash lands back on earth the the group launch a rescue mission to save him from the government
-when he wakes up he tells him what little he can remember
-lance and Keith tell him about their past and use their knowledge to try and help him piece things back together
-shiro is convinced that the galra are coming to earth, so they use the tech in Keith’s ship to scan for other alien tech
-they don’t find anything galra but there is a weird signal coming from the desert
-they investigate and find the blue lion
-Keith and lance recognize it and tell the others about voltron and what happened to it
-the details are fuzzy b/c nothing was ever confirmed, but they do know that the last black paladin (zarkon) went awol and somewhere in the chaos the other paladins died and the lions were lost
-they find out that lance is the new blue paladin
-the blue lion guides them to the other lions, and eventually they form voltron
-they run into allura and Coran along they way, who left in the castle ship to try and find lance
-they are both overjoyed to find him and tell him what’s been happening while he was away
-zarkon attacked their planet while they were gone, and their father is MIA
-after this it follows a lot of the general plot of voltron with them liberating planets and fighting galra
-klance acts like an old married couple
-coran is both amused and happy for them
-pidge is so done with the both of them being all mushy and gross
-hunk thinks their story is super romantic and won’t stop teasing them about it
-allura and shiro would probably have more to say about it if they weren’t too busy making heart eyes at each other


There’s a whole lot more to this but I’m literally just typing things as they come and forgot the rest 😂 also ignore the terrible spelling and punctuation, I’m on mobile rn..

anonymous asked:

Here's the EW article: ew(.)com/tv/2017/08/24/teen-wolf-jackson-ethan-couple/ It's absolute fucking trash from the first sentence to the last. SO much retcon and bullshit fuckery.

Okay, I can’t just let this one slip by, I’ve got a few words:

“It makes total sense,” Haynes says of his character’s newly revealed sexuality. “That’s why Jackson carried around that angst.”

First of all, there has not been a single goddamn thing on this show that makes total sense. Second, we already had a reason for that angst i.e. Jackson’s identity issues because he’s adopted (and also rich, spoiled, and pampered). 

And, most importantly, why would this even cause Jackson any angst? What happened to their whole ‘world without homophobia?’ And his best friend is literally gay? And still just as popular as straight, jackass Jackson?

Jackson being gay is a decision Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis made years ago.

I love how all of the bullshit in season 6 is somehow suddenly all part of ‘years long plans.’ As if anyone at all is buying this. 

“I thought, if Jackson comes back, he’s coming back in a relationship with a guy,” Davis says. “Whether that means he’s bisexual or gay, that’s how he’s returning. I just felt like he went off to London and found himself.”

Oh sweet jesus. More like Colton officially came out and Jeff went, ‘oh, goodie, something else I can exploit!’ 

Also, uh, bisexual and gay are not the same thing and if sexuality was apparently such an inherent part of Jackson’s character, you’d think Jeff would have decided what the fuck that sexuality is. (And, like, Jackson is with Ethan, but they very deliberately had him check out a girl, too, so why act vague now?????)

And he went off to London to “find himself?” Because he had to cross the fucking Atlantic to comes to terms with his sexuality when he was living in a homophobia-free town with a gay best friend? 

And London is where fans will find the happy couple — “They’re so sweet together,” Davis says — when they first appear in the Sept. 10 episode.

So, they’re going to be in a toxic, borderline abusive relationship? Because given the other romances on this show, we really have to conclude that that’s what Jeff thinks “sweet” is. 

“We’re an odd couple,” Carver says of the relationship. “His character’s always been kind of an arrogant prick, so I’m the one who tones him down.” 

Because Ethan wasn’t a prick? Charlie, your character literally murdered people. On purpose. How the hell is he toning anyone down?

“They complement each other perfectly. They have a really beautiful relationship.”

“Beautiful relationship” HA! I’ll drop fucking dead from shock if Teen Wolf ever gets close to approximating a beautiful relationship. 

And beautiful? Seriously? He’s dating his best friend’s ex whom he never met and who he magically found in another country via Werewolf Gaydar. 

Together, Jackson and Ethan will return to Beacon Hills to help Scott fight the war against the army of hunters led by none other than Gerard Argent.

Because this makes sense. Jackson - who never gave two shits about Scott - and Ethan - whose brother died trying to help Scott - are going to come all the way from London just to help characters they don’t even know and join Scott’s fanclub. 

anonymous asked:

whats your opinion on the whole "Men's lives have meaning, not their deaths"? on one hand, it seems to fit the series themes really well, but at the same time, there are people like Waymar Royce, robb stark, Donella Hornwood, etc. whose lives all seemed to build up to their deaths and everything else they did was pointless.

I cannot say it better than my dear friend @poorquentyn already did:

 “Men’s lives have meaning, not their deaths” is the closest we’ve gotten to an overarching thesis statement for ASOIAF. It reaches all the way back to the first book, to Ned (who, like Quent, turns out to not be the protagonist after all) and his shocking demise. So many readers have interpreted that moment, as well as the Red Wedding two books later, as being indicative of nihilism on GRRM’s part. Everything is chaos, honor gets you killed and is therefore worthless, “power is power.” But this is not so. Ned’s legacy is not his death, it is his life. The children determined to find each other again because Dad taught them to stick together and be brave, the vassals who have set out to rescue and restore those children in his name, the memory both in-universe and IRL of a decent man who treated his servants like human beings worth listening to and who was determined to protect the young and innocent…all of this is the meaning of Ned Stark, not that he ended up as a head on a spike. By the same token, the meaning of Tywin Lannister isn’t that he died on the can. It’s why he died on the can, and that is because he lived a terrible life. His legacy is his family tearing itself apart, his hoped-for Lannister regime falling to pieces across Westeros, and his oh-so-symbolic reeking corpse. One of these men, for all his mistakes, found and spread a worthy meaning in his brief time on Terros, and the other, for all his triumphs, did not. We are all mortal; all of us, “from the highest lord to the lowest gutter rat,” are ultimately helpless before the abyss that Quent leaps into in his final chapter. No one (not even Euron, try as he might) can change that. What matters, what makes us who are, what means something, is how we live our lives knowing that in the end, the house always wins.

If you’re looking at Waymar Royce, Donella Hornwood, or Robb Stark (!) as only potential corpses, then I’m afraid you’ve missed this key part of the narrative. The house always wins. Every character is going to die, sooner or later, in spectacular or ignominious fashion. But unless that character has lived in a cave his entire life and interacted with no one, he has had a life of interactions and relationships. He has made choices that impact himself and others, and those all serve to give his life meaning far beyond how he died.

What makes Waymar Royce’s life meaningful? That he was arrogant, entitled, and embodied the worst parts of blue-blood Vale chivalry is not in question (although I’d bet Bronze Yohn, Waymar’s nameless mother, and his two brothers might disagree that “everything he did was pointless” until he died, and I’d say that he had an important impact both on Sansa and her budding ideals of knighthood and Jon’s ideals of the Night’s Watch). But it’s Waymar who introduces that very idea - that the choices you make, even in the face of certain defeat, are what define you, not your success or your death:

The Other slid forward on silent feet. In its hand was a longsword like none that Will had ever seen. No human metal had gone into the forging of that blade. It was alive with moonlight, translucent, a shard of crystal so thin that it seemed almost to vanish when seen edge-on. There was a faint blue shimmer to the thing, a ghost-light that played around its edges, and somehow Will knew it was sharper than any razor. 

Ser Waymar met him bravely. “Dance with me then.” He lifted his sword high over his head, defiant. His hands trembled from the weight of it, or perhaps from the cold. Yet in that moment, Will thought, he was a boy no longer, but a man of the Night’s Watch.

The Other halted. Will saw its eyes; blue, deeper and bluer than any human eyes, a blue that burned like ice. They fixed on the longsword trembling on high, watched the moonlight running cold along the metal. For a heartbeat he dared to hope. They emerged silently from the shadows, twins to the first. Three of them … four … five …

Ser Waymar may have felt the cold that came with them, but he never saw them, never heard them. Will had to call out. It was his duty. And his death, if he did. He shivered, and hugged the tree, and kept the silence. 

The pale sword came shivering through the air.

Ser Waymar met it with steel. When the blades met, there was no ring of metal on metal; only a high, thin sound at the edge of hearing, like an animal screaming in pain. Royce checked a second blow, and a third, then fell back a step. Another flurry of blows, and he fell back again.

Again and again the swords met, until Will wanted to cover his ears against the strange anguished keening of their clash. Ser Waymar was panting from the effort now, his breath steaming in the moonlight. His blade was white with frost; the Other’s danced with pale blue light. 

Then Royce’s parry came a beat too late. The pale sword bit through the ringmail beneath his arm. The young lord cried out in pain. Blood welled between the rings. It steamed in the cold, and the droplets seemed red as fire where they touched the snow. Ser Waymar’s fingers brushed his side. His moleskin glove came away soaked with red.

The Other said something in a language that Will did not know; his voice was like the cracking of ice on a winter lake, and the words were mocking.

Ser Waymar Royce found his fury. “For Robert!” he shouted, and he came up snarling, lifting the frost-covered longsword with both hands and swinging it around in a flat sidearm slash with all his weight behind it. The Other’s parry was almost lazy. 

In that moment, Waymar Royce faced down a threat not seen by the men of the Watch in eight thousand years - a threat he might have genuinely thought was only a scare story to tell children. He was facing a monster out of legend, a monster armed with a razor-sharp, otherworldly blade. He could have tried to run; he could have tried to beg for mercy; but he didn’t. He chose to stand, and he chose to fight, although he must have known that the odds were long against him. And even as he gets tired, even as he realizes that he’s fighting an enemy unlike any he ever faced in the yard at Runestone or Castle Black, even as he’s wounded and mocked by this monster, he keeps fighting. These were the last moments of his life, but he chose to spend them like this. When the ancient enemy came at him, he chose to stand and fight. That’s what gives his life meaning - not that he died against an Other but that he fought against an Other, he resisted; when the hour was bleakest, he raised his sword and dared his foe try him.

What makes Donella Hornwood’s life meaningful? Is it only that she died at Ramsay’s sadistic hands? Or is it that she was a woman with a life in her own right, a life of quite some years before Ramsay tortured her into the grave. She was a woman who had loved and lost before Ramsay ever came into the picture. She had been wed, and had borne a son, and surely both Lord Halys and young Daryn thought her life had meaning before Robb ever called the banners at Winterfell. She had lost them both, but did not blame and hate the Starks for it, as another northern widow once had at the close of another war. She grieved, but she was able to love through her grief (although she could not be with Ser Rodrik). That she died in so ugly a fashion is only the last tragedy in a tragic life, not the reason her life was lived; in life she comported herself with gentleness, and had years of peace with her husband and son until the bloodshed of the War of the Five Kings.

What makes Robb Stark’s life meaningful? Hell, I can hardly even begin to answer this. As a son, Robb was beloved of his parents, and developed an especially close relationship with his mother, one built on love and trust. As a brother, Robb was close to his siblings, particularly Jon and Bran (and foster brother Theon); it’s Robb who remains in their fondest memories, and Robb specifically who inspires Sansa and Bran to be brave. As a husband Robb risked his Frey alliance to do right by his father’s example, and had a loving and affectionate relationship with his wife despite their short time together. As a king, Robb strived to be brave, honorable, and just, despite the difficult choices and unwinnable scenarios he faced. Jeyne Westerling weeps for him and rends her garments in defiant mourning for the “little rebel” she wed; Wylla Manderly invokes her grandfather to remember their “brave and good” king; Brynden Tully flies the direwolf standard above Riverrun despite the army at his doorstep; Lyanna Mormont insists that “Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is Stark”. Robb’s murder is remembered as a deed that will live in infamy, but it is his life - as the glorious Young Wolf, as the hope of House Stark, as King in the North, as Robb himself - which inspires such loyalty beyond his death.

Okay, but imagine Daenerys trying to recruit the Northern Houses to her cause and Lady Lyanna Mormont goes, “The North knows no King (Queen) but the King in the North whose name is Stark.”

And Daenerys tries to talk down to and impress Lyanna with her dragons and her massive army of people (most of whom worship the ground she walks on). She even tries to say that one of her most trusted (noticeably absent) advisors is the noble Ser Jorah Mormont of Bear Island in a vain attempt to win over Lyanna and House Mormont. (But Lyanna is smart and knows full well that Jorah was a shitty person who was exiled for being a slaver - and that he doesn’t show remorse for being a slaver either.)

So Lyanna just does her “How ‘bout you stop talking like seven years ago” Bear Glare and repeats, in that perfect Northern voice, “The North knows no King but the King in the North whose name is Stark.”

Levi Ackerman is in Zeke’s nightmares. Let that sink in for a minute…

Zeke, the terrorizer, the man who looks down on every Eldian, whose beast form strikes fear to the very core of a person’s being is haunted by the memory of Levi going ham on his army of titans, then demolishing his shifted form. Levi may not know it, but his revenge was already being administered from the moment he had Zeke pinned beneath his blade.

anonymous asked:

Can you write where elia escape with her kids through the secret passage of red keep she studied with oberyn as kids.

“Mama, it’s so dark. I can’t see anything.”

“I know, baby, just a bit longer.”

Truthfully, she doesn’t know how much farther they have to go. She and Oberyn had stumbled upon the passageway many, many years ago, but they’d been children and had only traveled a few minutes before they got nervous and turned back. She doesn’t even know where this goes exactly, but it will at least take them out of the Red Keep, and right now that’s all that concerns her. The image of those men climbing the walls of the Holdfast she’d always been told was impenetrable is seared in her mind.

Rhaenys grips her hand tightly, while Aegon is blessedly silent as he rests in the sling on her back. He hasn’t cried once since they entered the tunnel, like he knows their lives depend on staying unheard.

After what seems an eternity, a glimmer of light appears ahead, and Elia approaches warily, fearing that they could emerge only to find themselves in the midst of Lord Tywin’s men.

But instead, as she peers this way and that, the street is eerily empty. She can’t get her bearings at first, but then she spots the sign of a tavern whose name she vaguely recalls Ser Barristan mentioning once in passing as a place for drunks and malcontents. She supposes they must have joined the army in looting the city.

Just as well for her.

“Come on,” she urges Rhaenys. “Hurry, darling.”

Scarves cover their heads, a thin attempt to shield them from prying eyes, but she knows it would only help for passing glances. There aren’t many Dornishwomen in the capital, and none but her with two small children in tow. She hurries them along the cobbled streets and finally comes across one she knows. A brothel is no place for babes, but for this one Elia would make an exception.

She bangs on the door desperately, hearing the sounds of soldiers frighteningly near, and then finally a woman opens it a crack. “Who are you?”

“Is Melessa here?” she asks. It’s a vain hope; she knows her uncle’s paramour helps the girls as a midwife and caregiver now and again, but luck would have to be on her side.

As it happens, luck is not. “No. You a friend of Missy’s?”

“Yes, very much so,” says Elia. “Get Chataya, then. She knows me. I need shelter until I can safely get out of the city.”

“This is no inn.”

Get her,” Elia demands.

The woman looks about to protest again, but then the door is pulled wide open, and Elia sighs in relief to see the madam standing there. “Come inside, quickly.”

“I pray I need not impose upon you for long,” says Elia. “I do not wish to put you in danger.”

“Never mind that,” says Chataya as she draws her into a warm embrace. “You are safe here, princess.”

A Blind Path Home, Part 2

Steve Rogers x Reader

A/N: I obviously took some liberties with the storyline, but I tried keeping it as true as possible to the canon history. No beta used this time around, so excuse my mistakes.

Summary: It started with a blind date. A date you had skipped out on, but fate had led you right to the man you stood up. Steve Rogers, a man small in stature but big in heart. A chance meeting set everything in motion, but decades later when he is unfrozen, he has been told you have died. But when a mission to retrieve Hydra plans turned up some interesting information, Steve’s left to wonder whether you are still alive. Or is this all just false hope?

Anonymity Is Dunkirk’s Biggest Strength

When I went to see Dunkirk, I was fully prepared for an emotional war movie. I was familiar with the story of Dunkirk and had also heard reviews from people focusing on the lack of blood and the emotional turmoil of there not being enough ships to save these men. I did not expect it to be so emotional and also give a really moving visual to the breadth of this loss and almost disaster. 

I think Dunkirk’s strength lies in how it doesn’t focus on one character trying to get home to his pregnant wife or a specific battalion who are good friends but picked off one by one. There are those elements–we know everyone is going home to someone and there are groups that stick together, but that’s not the focus. Instead the focus rests on this enormous group of men to the point where it’s almost hard to tell them apart. The movie mostly follows a lot of youngish (18-25) white male soldiers with brown hair who are wearing matching uniforms. There are two soldiers in particular that we follow for most of the movie, but I sometimes lost them in the crowds they were in. And there’s reason to criticize this–there were black troops fighting at Dunkirk, the movie certainly would have been improved with some diversity (I think there is literally one passing shot of any non-white troops). But the use of only white brown-haired boys aged like 18-25 did solidify this story into the broader picture of the sheer numbers who needed saving. When you can’t pick a face out of the crowd, you’re forced to focus on the crowd, and that’s powerful for this kind of film. 

To add to the blurring of faces, names aren’t really emphasized. In the arcs containing the British airmen, and the father/son and friend (or servant?) taking their boat to Dunkirk, names are said and they’re dressed differently enough we can tell them apart. We’re meant to, then. But in the main story of the soldiers on the beach, everyone is named like this: Lone Private, Blind Man, Engineer, Nurse, Sailor, Lifeboat Soldiers 1 and 2. Even when they have lines, they’re not always named because their individuality doesn’t matter. And on the other hand, there’s even more anonymity for the more big name actors, like Tom Hardy–his face is obscured for almost all of the movie. I frankly didn’t even realize it was him until the end when he pulls off his mask, and then he doesn’t even speak for the rest of his time in the movie. This anonymity, the almost faceless group of stranded British soldiers, emphasizes the enormity of 300,000+ trapped soldiers.  

We also never see a single enemy face. There are German planes flying over the exposed British army, but we don’t see whose inside–they could be drones 100 years too early for all the viewer knows. And there’s no one for the soldiers to actually fight–they’re reduced to just trying to leave, and cowering under tiny helmets to protect their whole bodies when enemy planes fly over. There’s shots fired but we never see at who. It makes the whole evacuation seem even more futile and horrifying because we don’t really know who is attacking. I mean from history we know, but there’s no villain for us to look at and hate. Normally in movies we have a clear villain who we can look at and say, “You are causing the characters I sympathize with pain, and I dislike you for that.” Even when we love villains, we mostly love to hate them. 

On the other side, some officers in the British army talk about how the higher ups at home won’t send more warships because they think it’s too hard and pointless to try saving all these men. It’s down to resources–they think it’s a waste of resources to send ships that will just get sunk. We understand they are leaving them to be killed, just another sacrifice of war. These soldiers the viewer watches die become just another resource, a thing, to the men directing this war back at home. In this discussion, Churchill is quoted as only expecting 30,000 to be saved–there are over 300,000 men there. We can hate these higher-ups in a sort of theoretical way, but because we don’t see or interact with them, the anger remains theoretical, we can’t pin it on them. We can’t look Churchill in the face and think/say, “Fuck you, you asshole, for being willing to sacrifice 270,000 men.” And because we don’t get to excise this fury it just morphs into more and more helplessness as more and more men die. 

And I think that’s was a great choice. I bow down Christopher Nolan and everyone involved for risking going with anonymity to tell the larger story. At the end of the day, the enormity of the potential tragedy at Dunkirk is the point. It was never about one hero. The anonymity is what makes the story great.

Jorah warned Dany about undercover lover

And here’s why:

1. In the books, Barristan was undercover when he first met Dany, so he’s seen this trick before.
2. Jorah warned Dany she is being too trusting of people that flock to her. They may look “loyal” but are actually using lies and deceit. 

At this point in time, when Jorah is still in her good graces, she resists his advice and doesn’t take his warning seriously.

Dany starts out the scene (in Book 3) daydreaming of Westeros, like Sansa from Season 1, Episode 1:

I am still half a world from Westeros, Dany reminded herself, but every hour brings me closer. She tried to imagine what it would feel like, when she first caught sight of the land she was born to rule. It will be as fair a shore as I have ever seen, I know it. How could it be otherwise?

Why the TV show Timeless Deserves More Attention

Okay everyone listen up. This past year (meaning 2016 going into 2017), NBC seemed to have a good batch of new TV shows that have gained critical acclaim (This Is Us, I’m looking at you). But one that seemed to fly under the radar was the show Timeless. It was created by Eric Kripke, who is also known for creating the show of Supernatural which is on the CW, and Shawn Ryan.  

Now just a gist of what it’s about. It’s about a man who steals a time machine to go back into critical points of United States and early North American history to try and take out this organization called Rittenhouse, which seems to play a major role in basically every turning point of the historical timeline. The government takes over control of the industry who made the time machine and gets a trio of people to go back in time to stop the man. 

It seems that time machines and time travel seem to be an up and coming theme in media (Doctor Who reboot, Legends of Tomorrow to name two). But this one I found stood out in ways that deserve the recognition it’s due.

anonymous asked:

you realise st george was a turkish muslim right?

I actually didn’t realise that! Namely because none of it is true/accurate.

Islam hadn’t been thought up by that oh-so-loveable slave-owning paedophile yet (St. George lived from AD 280-303, Muhammad lived AD 570-632), so it would be quite an impressive feat for our George to time travel, convert to Islam and pop back in time to become a Christian martyr, now, wouldn’t it?

Let’s move on to your less blindingly ignorant but equally incorrect statements. Firstly, like the majority of early Christian saints, the truth of who George really was has been retold in stories and myths so many times and spun for myriad reasons over the intervening centuries that the stories we have inherited can be easily twisted to fit ones own world-view when not exclusively looking at the facts.

However, when we look at the facts we do have, your assertions begin to fall apart. Firstly, he was not ‘Turkish’, in George’s time the ethnic Turkic peoples were based to the east of Central Asia, in what is today a part of China. Now modern-day Turkey is situated in a region that was known in George’s time as Anatolia, whose population was neither Turkic or Arab and which wouldn’t become Islamic for a long time.

Furthermore, George’s parents were devout Christians, of Greek ancestry, his father Gerontius (Greek name, meaning “old man”) was a Roman army official from Cappadocia, and his mother Polychronia (Greek name, meaning she who lives many years) was a Christian and a Greek native.

To recap: He was not Muslim, not Turkish, not Arab.

I don’t really know why every year I get the same idiots spewing these seemingly deliberate misconceptions at me, does your white guilt run so deep that you can’t bear to think that our Patron Saint wasn’t secretly some anachronistic Arab Muslim?

Happy St. George’s day to everyone other than that anon.

anonymous asked:

For the short prompts, I'd like to request "future" with frank castle. ty!

frank + future

@alexsunmners @mvximoff @rax-writes @madelyne-pryor @dicckgrayson


Ever since the massacre at the park, Frank Castle knew what he had to do. He knew what his future held for him. It held death and carnage and bitter revenge and he knew that, getting into it. There wasn’t room for love or bullshit like that. He didn’t think he’d be capable of that; not after what he’s lost. What he lost is irreplaceable and he doesn’t want the burden of losing another person he cared about.

You have been seeing- more like fucking- Frank for two or three months, give or take. You know just enough about him to know that he’s a man that’s lost everyone he’s loved and that he’s a one-man army whose done terrible things. He knows just enough about you that you’re barely able to make rent with the shitty bartending job you have and that you have too much potential and too much of a future ahead of you, to be with someone like him.

The last couple of weeks though, he’s actually started to stay over. Like, fall asleep next to you stay over. To anyone else, it might not be a big deal, but to you, it’s a fucking leap in your relationship. (Or whatever you want to call it.) 

He finds that you’re warm when you sleep and that you mumble about your dreams sometimes. You find that The Big Bad Punisher fucking cuddles in his sleep. (You’ve never pointed that out to him.) You’re unable to process how close you could be to someone physically, but be so far away from them at the same time.

Tonight, he’s high on the adrenaline of another ambush and he doesn’t bother to call you to let you know that he’s coming over; he just knocks. You answer, and you know what he’s here for. It’s not long before your clothes are tossed carelessly on the floor, leading to your room.

Afterward, you fall asleep, whispering to him that he can stay if he wants and that there are leftovers in the fridge. He watches as you drift off, eyes fluttering shut and breathing slowing. You look calm, at peace; something he hasn’t seen or felt in years. And as he studies your facial features, he absentmindedly and softly moves a strand of your hair behind your ear. Even though you’re asleep, you lean into his touch, and that’s when Frank realizes something he’s been fighting off ever since he started seeing you.

His heart constricts at the fact that he does, in fact, care for you. And all at once, he’s not staring at you; he’s staring at Maria, in his bed, in his home. She’s asleep, and she’s wearing the diamond on her finger. She’s pressed against his side, and he’s wondering how he married someone like her.

Frank’s breath catches in his throat, and he moves his hand away from your cheek as he realizes that he can’t keep doing this. He can’t have his life integrate with yours. He can’t destroy your future because he’s looking for something he can’t have. 

So he gets up quietly and pulls on his clothes, doing his best not to wake you. He’s about to turn the doorknob to your front door when he pauses and steps back into your kitchen to grab a piece of paper. He jots down a few words, before he signs his name. As much as it hurts him, he stares at the note for a second, before gritting his jaw, and leaving for the last time.


Sweetheart,

It’s not fair to you that I’m looking for something in you that I can’t replace. I care about you, so that’s why I have to leave. I’m sorry.

Take care of yourself for me.

Frank

I’ve talked before about Tyrion’s speech about Dany and how passionate it is for a statement about someone he’s never met and does not have any connection to. Tyrion can also easily be referring to himself, especially when he talks about pride. Here is the quote for reference:

“I know that she spent her childhood in exile, impoverished, living on dreams and schemes, running from one city to the next, always fearful, never safe, friendless but for a brother who was by all accounts half-mad … a brother who sold her maidenhood to the Dothraki for the promise of an army. I know that somewhere out upon the grass her dragons hatched, and so did she. I know she is proud. How not? What else was left her but pride? I know she is strong. How not? The Dothraki despise weakness. If Daenerys had been weak, she would have perished with Viserys. I know she is fierce. Astapor, Yunkai, and Meereen are proof enough of that. She has crossed the grasslands and the red waste, survived assassins and conspiracies and fell sorceries, grieved for a brother and a husband and a son, trod the cities of the slavers to dust beneath her dainty sandaled feet.”

Now let’s break this down to find some further parallels between Tyrion and Dany.

I know that she spent her childhood…living on dreams and schemes

When he was still a lonely child in the depths of Casterly Rock, he oft rode dragons through the nights, pretending he was some lost Targaryen princeling, or a Valyrian dragonlord soaring high o'er fields and mountains.

Both lonely, abused children whose only real family was…

friendless but for a brother who was by all accounts half-mad … 

There was very little that Jaime took seriously. Tyrion knew that about his brother, and forgave it. During all the terrible long years of his childhood, only Jaime had ever shown him the smallest measure of affection or respect, and for that Tyrion was willing to forgive him most anything.  

a brother who was the only protector of both, but who couldn’t be entirely relied upon, either. But whose flaws were easily forgiven by their younger sibling because they were the only positive influence in their life.

a brother who sold her maidenhood to the Dothraki for the promise of an army.

Jaime arranged the whole affair, the road, the outlaws, all of it. He thought it was time I had a woman. He paid double for a maiden, knowing it would be my first time.  

Of course, Jaime didn’t actually arrange things with Tysha, but Tyrion spent most of his teen and adult years believing that he did.

I know she is proud. How not? What else was left her but pride? 

All his life Tyrion had prided himself on his cunning, the only gift the gods had seen fit to give him

Both Tyrion and Dany were forced to take pride in themselves because no one else did, and relied on themselves when they didn’t have anything else to rely on. They took pride in themselves even when there didn’t appear to be a reason to be prideful.

I know she is strong. How not? The Dothraki despise weakness. If Daenerys had been weak, she would have perished with Viserys.

He must not let his father see. He was a Lannister of Casterly Rock. A lion, I must be a lion, live a lion, die a lion.

[…]

Tyrion knew how much his father despised weakness.

Both of them were forced to be strong because of their circumstances.

She has crossed the grasslands and the red waste, survived assassins and conspiracies and fell sorceries

Tyrion has survived all of these things as well, even when others said he should have died. So Tyrion is speaking about Dany here but he’s also, perhaps unconsciously, speaking about his own experiences.

BTS reaction to their crush being a translator or interpreter at big hit (Maknae line)

Continuation of the request.

JIMIN:
You started working in bighit as a translator for BTS, most of the members were quite shy around you, trying their best not to show it or make it extremely obvious in public, but when you were at the company building the best thing you got from them was a few worlds in english and an awkward “I’m not good at english” smile, that was the reason you got specially surprised at an interview where the guys were asked about their ideal type of girl.Some of them described it, others just mumbled the name of a celebrity, Jimin, on the other hand, showing his known “sexy” charisma bitted softly his plumped lower lip, moving his head a few centimeters to look at you from head to toe.
-“I would say my ideal type is someone similar to Y/N” You blushed completely but had to act like nothing happened, you were working anyways and had to stay professional.
The way back to the company was loud, the guys were joking between them but you made sure to stay focused on your phone (at least, pretended to be). As you went through a tunnel, suddenly you were trapped inside a blanket for a few seconds “I wasn’t joking, Y/N, I really think you are my ideal type” You heard Jimin saying after moving away, the tunnel ended and the city lights let you see the exact moment when he hid his blushed face in a soft yellow blanket.

TAEHYUNG:
Because of his childish type of personality even though he notice quite soon he was very attracted to you he didn’t know how to act around you, but he decided that if he couldn’t tell you about his feelings yet he’ll become your guardian, always taking care of you. His accent was strong and whenever he said words that started with an S they ended up coming out with as Sh, that wasn’t much of a problem for him, he knew turning “Sit” into “shit” made you laugh, so especially when you were having a low day because you miss your family he made sure to start talking in a strong accent, messing up as many words as he could. -“Don’t be sad, Y/N shit down next to me” –You laugh a little sitting next to him while he has having a little time off from practicing the dance, was late night and your energy counter was running out. Slowly you started to become sleepier, laying your head gently on Taehyung’s shoulder. “I will take care of you” He looked at you with a little smile, maybe he would never be able to tell you how much he liked you but that kind of actions were enough for him. 

JUNGKOOK:
Being the Maknae and not having a lot of experience around girls in general made him feeling extremely nervous when you had to be together, from staying by your side while having an interview to just watching you from a few meters away was a huge struggle for him, especially because you were his ideal type, he told his hyungs a lot of times but even if he was very vocal about his feelings was almost impossible to have a real conversation with you.
NamJoon talked to you about a new song, where most of jungkook’s parts were in english, he lied, saying how much he was struggling with Kook’s accent, so you happily accepted to help.
JungKook came into the practice room with a folded paper NamJoon told him not to open and just gave it to you. You opened and read it out loud, arching your eyebrow as you started to understand the message.
“I really like you, Y/N but I’m way too shy to tell you so I end up acting like a scared deer, please, just accept my feelings so I can let Namjoon work peacefully on the new songs” Blushed you translate the message to JungKook whose eyes opened full of surprise knowing his hyung played him that way. He stayed silent for almost a minute before saying “It is true” In the best english he could.
