and he's all like you DO remember me

Today I whipped out the Truth record to listen to and saw this photo which I had totally forgotten about in the gatefold jacket. I remember him picking me up at Heathrow like yesterday. He rolled me a cig and as he handed it to me (already lit) he said “are you ready to make history mate?” I can say in all confidence we did. Micky had a voice like no other and it was an extreme honor to record him doing what came most natural to him. Singing. He wasn’t afraid of cracking a joke, giving you a smile or just being a plain piss taking cunt… and the latter is which I loved him the most for. We wrote songs together, made records together, laughed together, played together, we bet on horses together (he taught me how) and toured together. He was a huge inspiration and a big reason why I love Punk & Oi! Music. The Punk & Oi! world lost another hero…. no one can fill that spot… Only Micky could…. my heart goes out to his wife and son… today I’m gonna remember the good times. All my love to you mate in the here and after. Thanks for changing my life. R.I.P - Lars

“All doctors have those patients who sit on our shoulder. Their image is always with you. One kid will pop into your head every time you hit a wall - when you encounter a disease that is so unrelenting that you’ve exhausted all therapies and you’re still not even close. One memory will keep you going. It’s a different kid for every doctor. It’s hard to know why they stick with us. I remember one patient that had red hair just like my son. And I remember one five-year-old girl who made me laugh, because when I asked her how she was doing, she told me: ‘I don’t know. You’re the doctor.’ And then there was the boy early in my career who was born without an immune system. He’d already lost two older siblings to the same disease. He lived the first two years of his life in an isolation room with no windows, and his entire exposure to the world was through a black-and-white TV. We gave him a bone marrow transplant, and suddenly his immune system came online. And we took him for a walk in the garden. This boy who had spent his entire life in a windowless room. And a sparrow landed on a bush, and he pointed at it, and said: ‘Bird.’ That moment will always be with me.”

You’re right. I can’t save you. The whole time he had me, there was some part of me that fought. There was some tiny corner of my brain that tried to get out. And I’m still fighting. I won’t stop fighting. But if you give up, I lose. Do you get that? He did this to you to get at me. To isolate me. To make me feel like an infection, one more person dead or dying because of me. So why don’t you remember how to be a goddamn human being again, instead of this self-pitying piece of shit that he turned you into, and save me for once? You choose.

“I went to community college when I was twenty-one. I just had an epiphany that I wasn’t really doing anything with my life. I was staying out drinking until 4 AM every night. I was working retail. I was dating a guy who was a total douchebag. When I told him I wanted to go to college, he told me ‘Let’s be real. You’re never going to pass. Don’t waste your time.’ So at the beginning my whole motivation for going back to school was to prove people wrong. I went to all my classes. I turned in well-written papers, not bullshit ones. And it was hard, but I discovered that I liked the feeling of making good grades. So I started doing it for myself. And I never looked back. I remember taking an anthropology course that first year, and one of my assignments was to write a paper on New York City nightlife. I went to the same bar that I used to go to every night. Except I wasn’t drinking. I was just watching and taking notes. And I saw this girl my age playing beer pong, and she didn’t have a care in the world, and she was stumbling around, and she didn’t realize why the guys were being so nice to her, and she was probably spending money that she didn’t have. And I remember feeling so glad that I wasn’t that girl anymore.”

So like, as much as we joke about it (and lbr, are totally intended to given that he’s one of the more ‘comic relief’ characters), I’ve noticed that in pretty much all of Junkrat’s canon material he’s shown having tons of attentional/memory issues. 

The biggest example is in his comic, in which he’s basically constantly forgetting what he’s doing/supposed to be doing. 

He forgets he’s supposed to be quiet.

He (despite trying harder to remember than he does with anything else, really) forgets that there are supposed to be hostages in the building waiting to be rescued.

When that cop calls Mako fat he gets upset, forgets what they’re doing, and nearly gets shot!

In this ending joke, he even forgets who’s idea it was to try and leave behind their life of crime at all (it was him). 

(And you’ve all likely already seen this, I know!) But jeez, even his little title screen animation of all things has a moment where he looks like he forgot where he was or what he was doing:

And like, obviously all of this stuff is meant to be funny, he’s a jokey character in general, I know I know. But it’s honestly a pretty irrefutable part of his character that he has problems with paying attention to directions/memory- nearly every page of that comic had him forgetting something important! 

There are tons of different things that could cause issues like his, all the way from neurodevelopmental disorders like ADHD to certain injuries, but unfortunately, since he’s such a comic relief character we probably won’t ever get a specific reason in canon. But I think it’s worth noting anyhow, being such a consistent part of his character!

(Edit: @killermage added that chronic pain can cause memory problems too, which makes sense given his missing limbs as well! So there’s that to consider)

during 10.22 part of me is like “YOU KNOW WHAT, I BET SAM AND CAS TALKED THIS THROUGH BEFORE EITHER OF THEM GOT THERE AND SAM WAS LIKE ‘dean will be pretty messed up so if worse comes to worse YOU GOTTA TELL HIM STRAIGHT YOU GOTTA DROP THE EMOTION BOMB’ but cas was like ‘CAN’T DO IT HHAHA HE PROBABLY KNOWS THO AND I INDIRECTLY SAY IT ALL THE TIME SO IT’S FINE’”

and sam just grumpily wonders how romantic love might affect dean’s mark but they’re both too stubborn to spit it out

I want to explain something: 

I’ve been writing this story for five years, if you ask me today I’ll say two years cause yes I’ve only been working on the current version for two years, but…in actuality it’s more like five.

And throughout all those five years, no one cared about my story, this one or any of them. I remember bringing up a story at twelve years old and my friends at the table said “Ugh! Not this again!” 

Once a family friend asked me to tell him about it, I was so happy, I started to explain, I hadn’t been going very long until my mother put a hand on my shoulder and said. “Okay sweetie, you’ve lost him.” 

I told my father I wanted to write books, he said “Yeah, you can do that while you’re waiting tables.” 

No one wanted me to be a writer. 

So I locked the story in my head, I never wrote it down.

It was my secret only because no one wanted to know. I wanted to write it, to scream it, to show the world, but no one else did. So why should I write it down? 

I was never going to be a writer. 

But I couldn’t shake the story. I’d daydream about it in class, the teachers would scold me about not paying attention, my mom once yelled at me on the way to school that I could never focus. So I tried to stop, I tried to bury it again. 

I didn’t want to be a writer. 

Until, someone let it slip they were writing a book, and I mentioned the story I’d been thinking about. And then we bounced ideas off each other, I had never, never, seen someone genuinely interested. 

And that, one person, was enough to get me writing again.

I’m not famous, my story isn’t published, I’m lucky if I can get five notes on my book’s text posts. But every note, is one less person telling me “Not again!” One less person who interrupts and says “You’ve lost him sweetie” One less person who tells me I’ll only wait tables. 

That’s why every note matters, to me and any other original creator, that’s why. Because we’ve heard we don’t matter, and we’ve heard we’ll never succeed, and every note, every message, proves they’re wrong in the tiniest way. 

If I post something and it gets one note, that’s enough, that’s one person that cared enough to look at it. 

It makes me want to be a writer. 

(3/6) “I started to become afraid of him. But I never argued back because I thought it would make him even more angry. He started to pick on me. He’d criticize how I dressed. And how I wore my hair. I remember it used to bother him that I used the word ‘love’ so much. I was an optimistic girl, so I was always talking about how I ‘loved’ things. ‘Stop saying that word,’ he’d say. ‘Why do you love everything? That’s so stupid.’ I remember one night he hit me because I mixed his vegetables with his rice. I became very still and quiet around him. Just like I’d been with my mother. Remember—this was all I’d ever known. ‘It’s normal,’ I told myself, ‘Everyone gets a beating sometimes.’ We had five children together. It’s hard to explain why I stayed. He began beating blood out of me. But then he’d hug me and tell me he was sorry. He’d tell me that he needed me. He told me about his childhood. He told me that his father beat him every day. He told me that he had no mother. He used to say: ‘I see you as my mother.’ And that made me feel good. ‘I need you,’ he’d say. And that feeling of being needed is what kept me in that house. He was the father of my children, after all. I told myself he’d been traumatized. And it wasn’t his fault. But here’s the thing– I’d been traumatized too. And I didn’t hurt anyone.”

Street Artist: Lonac

Lonac is a muralist, painter, and illustrator from Zagreb, Croatia.

In Croatian, “lonac” means cooking pot. That nickname was given to the artist when he was just a boy, and back then, he hated it. When he started doing graffiti, Lonac had to come up with some tag name for himself. At the time, all the graffiti writers had some cool gangsta nicknames/tags, but every name the young creative came up with sounded fake and pretentious, so he took the one he disliked the most. “Thinking about the beginnings really amuses me. It doesn’t take too long to remember the feeling of child-like excitement and freedom I get while painting outside. It’s easy to do it when you’re a kid, but as people grow older they stop doing some of the things that made them happy.

… People is hating on Sebastian for being white?

Man, do you even understand why this men left his country as a kid?

Do you even get what he means with “I didn’t have comic books”, “I was communist”, “I remember this one thing about the revolution when I was a little kid”, “I had an accent so people made fun of me”, “I wanted to fit”?

Like… this is a white dude, yeah, and I do understand white dudes all over the world have been shitting on minorities since forever but here is the thing: when a breathing white dude is nice, happy, respectful and, you know, super unproblematic (thank you god and also jesus, and of course mrs. Stan and husband), is decent and you are hating on him because he is white, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.

“I can’t remember what band I saw, maybe it was mewithoutYou,” Williams says. “Taylor ended up being there. He was like, ‘Hey, do you wanna go get coffee after this?’ And I was just, ‘Oh, God, he’s gonna tell me that he’s splitting too, and now we’re really up a creek. Now we’ve lost the majority of the band. We sit down at Café Coco in Nashville [where Paramore is based], and we’re having coffee and I’m all nervous, speaking really fast. And he was like, ‘I’m not done with the band. I just don’t see any reason that I would ever want to stop.’ I remember I saved up all the mushy-gushy stuff until I got into the car by myself and I just started bawling all the way home.

don't steal this prompt thx

So holy shit, Sam was a fucking baby.

Dean didn’t understand how it happened; they were on a case, hunting a witch, but then abra cadabra, a tiny one year old was in the place of his gigantic brother. Dean remembered exactly how Sam used to look as a baby, and it was the exact same, tiny face and all.

So now, Dean was back at his motel room, sitting on his bed, the baby in his lap looking up at him in dumb-baby-confusion. “…Do you still know how to hunt?” Dean uselessly asked with a raised brow, but the baby just gurgled up at him with happiness. He sighed and set Sam away. “I can’t pray with you watchin’ me like that, you creep. You stay here,” Dean ordered the baby, giving him the ‘I’m watching you’ hand-to-eye motion, before retreating into the bathroom.

“Cas?” He asked with a bowed head, hands casually holding the sides of the sink. “Uhh. Buddy. I know you said ‘call in emergencies’ buuut… I think this is kind of an emergency. So. Please get your feathered ass down here?”
