Do you have pirate recs? I will take anything - fiction, nonfiction, movies, songs, TV shows, I just want to get my pirate on

me: omfgf how the FUCK could this person KNOW that I am I IN MY PIRATE FEELINGS right now?!?!!? wtf?!!! ! !! wtf!!!! 

me five minutes ago: 

  • TREASURE ISLAND by ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON and all variations thereof: 
    • Black Sails, the queer poly pirate dream show of my heart 
    • Muppet Treasure Island, which gave us Shiver My Timbers, #1 pirate banger 
    • Treasure Planet, cartoon Treasure Island IN SPACE
  • PETER PAN (lol, sorry) by J. M. BARRIE and all variations thereof, but especially: 
    • Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen, which is like Peter Pan meets Outlander from James Hook’s POV
    • Peter Darling by Austin Chant, which is queer grown up Peter/Hook
    • Peter Pan (2003) is my favourite straight up adaptation, with lots of Jason Isaacs being the single best and ridiculously sexy Hook EVER
    • Hook (1991), which is and will always be bangarang
  • Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition: English Sea Rovers in the Seventeenth-Century Caribbean by B. R. Burg, if you fancy paying an arm and a leg for what essentially amounts to a copy of someone’s Master’s thesis from the 1980s. (it was pretty good though.) 
  • I should probably recommend Bloody Jack: Being an Account of the Curious Adventures of Mary “Jacky” Faber, Ship’s Boy by L. A. Meyer on behalf of Nicole, because she’s been telling me to read it for actual years at this point.
  • The Abyss Surrounds Us and The Edge of the Abyss by Emily Skrutskie are really cool futuristic Waterworld-esque sea monster lesbian pirate books, and I friggin’ loved ‘em. 
  • I’m definitely going to read Brethren by W. A. Hoffman, a classiqué m/m pirate book, mainly because I read the goodreads reviews and one person was like ‘ugh it’s 100 pages before they even meet each other!’ and another was like ‘ugh it’s basically just every pirate AU ever!’ and IMHO neither of those things belong in the con column. 
  • I’m giving BLACK SAILS its own bullet point as well, because how good this show is… truly cannot be overstated. it’s overwhelmingly queer, contains two (2) canon poly relationships, and is hands down some of the best storytelling I’ve ever seen on tv. the best way I’ve ever seen it described is: ‘black sails episode 1: “money gets my pussy wet” black sails season 4: is intersectional revolution compatible with personal happiness?’ and that’s just… so real. it is absolutely stunning. PIRATES!
  • this arrangement of The Parson’s Farewell by Bear McCreary is from Black Sails – listen to the whole thing with your eyes closed and picture noble pirates rallying against the British Empire for love. you are Welcome. 
  • I know that Johnny Depp makes us all furious now, but the first Pirates of the Caribbean still bangs. if you don’t want to look at him (understandable), then just listen to this. I’ve never wanted to climb a rigging more in my life than I do when I listen to this song. 
  • Gay Pirates by Cosmo Jarvis. beloved.
Kisses On A Plane (Grayson)

You shut your eyes tight, pushing your head back against the headrest as the plane jolted to life. Passengers were still filing in and taking their seats as the pilot announced you would be departing in a matter of minutes. You hoped to God no one would take the vacant spot next to you. You booked first class solely for that reason. A five hour flight from L.A. to New York with some stranger asleep on your shoulder? No thanks. Your eyes scanned the passengers taking up the aisles before landing on one in particular. He had headphones wrapped around his neck, brown hair swept across his forehead and the most stunning hazel eyes you had ever seen. There was a small mole on his chin and his lips were plump and pink. He was undoubtedly one of the most attractive guys you had ever laid eyes on. You were surprised to find he was alone, expecting some kind of model girlfriend to be trudging along behind him. When he stopped next to your seat, eyeing the spot next to you, your mouth went dry. He looked down at you, giving you a small smile.

“Uh. I think this is me.”

“Oh!” You stood as best as you could, shifting over so he could take the aisle seat next to you. “Sure, help yourself.” You smiled back, laughing awkwardly as you scrambled to move over. He laughed lightly before plopping down beside you. Holy shit he smelt amazing. He got himself situated then outstretched his hand towards you.

“I’m Grayson.”

okay sh fandom, let’s talk about how we’re not gonna put jace/maia into the same boat as all the other het ships on sh. you know why? Because maia is black. black women are desexualised on tv, this is a fact. when was the last time i saw a black woman in a scene like jace and maia’s??? please tell me because i can’t remember. anytime a black woman is a love interest on screen, it’s never ever the same as it being a white woman. we don’t always see a black woman as a love interest on every single show. so try to remember that when critiquing that scene in regards to the lack of intimate malec scenes. i’m not saying this whole situation isn’t the worst, because it is. but try and realise that it’s not the same because lord knows when maia will be intimate with anyone on screen. and this one scene was a hookup, they’re not in a relationship, what we saw was probably the last we’ll see of them together.

TBH Neo Yokio is so good because it’s just absolute bullshit. Like the animation is choppy, the voice acting is awkward, and the plot makes no fucking sense. It’s also got some of the most relatable quotes I’ve ever heard from a tv show. Like every other line is just some surrealist bougie shit about high fashion or vaping or big tobelerones. Also by the second episode one character becomes a fucking anarchist out of absolutely nowhere. Also there’s demons? That factor into the show somehow? My point is don’t try to make sense of it, just enjoy the surrealism and #relatable quotes

anonymous asked:

We’ve seen JC together for 4 seasons now. In most shows (most, not ALL of them) after the “will they won’t they” storyline, you can actually see the spark and tension gone. And it is so sad. Not with Outlander. I’d say there’s more chemistry between these two now than ever, you can see their love coming from every pore of their body. It’s so nice to see a tv show, show two people not only fall in love, but stay in love and who look at each other like the first day. Thanks Sam and Cait

Agreeed 10000%. I’ve watched shows where you can literally see the chemistry start to fizzle out as each episode airs and it becomes tedious to watch. With these two it just gets more and more intense. We’re so lucky guys. So so so lucky. 

Last (Peter Parker x Reader)

Pairing: Peter Parker x Reader

You and Peter Parker had been friends now for a very long time, eight years to be exact. In your eyes he was the perfect guy with his messy brown hair, cute dorky glasses and the adorable smile that appeared on his face whenever he saw you. Knowing he would only ever see you as his friend, you never attempted a relationship between you both. Never even told him your feelings, you didn’t want to lose him.

Peter was like a song that you could never ever get out of your head, on your mind everyday. There’s not been one day since you’ve met that you hadn’t thought about him at least once. Peter on the other hand, he had no problem not thinking about you romantically, well, that’s what you assumed anyway. He’s always going after girl after girl, from Mary Jane to Gwen to Liz. You knew you could never compete with those girls, all of them being smart, gorgeous and kind, well, maybe only Gwen on the kind part. 

But you knew you could never be what he wanted, you were the complete opposite of his type. You weren’t the smartest kid, you were just average with no talent to offer. The hair on your head didn’t look gorgeous everyday like the other girls, yours was always frizzy and often full of knots, you try to make it look nice but you’re far too lazy to spend time on your hair every morning. There were permanent dark circles under your eyes from those late night TV show marathons and you often wore nothing other than a simple jeans and t shirt combo. There was literally nothing exciting about you. You were kind to those who deserved it, not those like Flash Thompson who you didn’t have an ounce of respect for after all the kids he’s bullied over the years. 

But apart from being a nice person you had nothing to offer, there was no way Peter would ever like you the way you liked him. You often caught yourself day dreaming of what life would be like if you and Peter were together, being able to kiss him and hopefully be his last first kiss and being together for the rest of your lives. But you knew that was far from reality and not ever a probability, you were just the friend.


It was a Friday night and Peter had been invited to a party at Liz’s and somehow managed to drag you along with him. You had actually tried with your appearance tonight, brushing your hair and applying makeup since you had more time and were in the mood to walk in looking like a badass bitch. Maybe it was the fact that you knew girls who liked Peter were going to be there tonight and you feeling and looking confident was like your war paint going into battle. The cherry red heels you wore were clicking against the concrete as you and Peter made your way up Liz’s driveway, stuffing your hands into the pockets in your jacket to hide them from the cold air. 

You felt a little giddy tonight after Peter had complimented how you looked when you arrived outside his apartment before. He had told you that you looked breath taking and that was enough to keep a smile plastered on your face for the rest of the evening. You were glad you decided to wear jeans though, you couldn’t find it in yourself to wear a dress, no matter how hard you tried to look good tonight you weren’t prepared to freeze off your legs in this weather. 

“You ready Y/N?” Your friend asked, linking his arm through yours causing chills to travel down your spine at the touch. “As I’ll ever be.” Your confidence was wearing thin now, nervous to be in a room full of people whom you mostly disliked. But Peter wanted you to come with him so here you were, like a lost puppy obeying to his every command. You couldn’t deny you were lovesick for the boy.

Entering the house you found yourself inching closer into Peter, the crowds of teenagers let wild in the living room. The music was thumping so loudly that you couldn’t hear yourself think and sweaty bodies were grinding against each other on the dance floor. “So this is what a high school party looks like?” You looked up at Peter with an uneasy expression, this was going to be a long night. He chuckled at your reaction to the drunk teens and pulled you further along into the crowd.

Looking around you could see a kitchen where bottles of alcohol were lined up and a few people were doing body shots. You could have sworn you just witnessed some random guy taking a body shot off of Jen from your math class. Never would have pegged her for a party type. Peter’s eyes brightened a little as he saw something behind you. Curious to see what caused him to act like this you turned around to be face to face with Liz, oh god help me.

“Peter…and Y/N, it’s so nice to see you here!” You could evidently hear the fake excitement she had when she noticed you with Peter. You couldn’t help but stand up straighter, she was not getting anywhere near your guy tonight. You faked a friendly smile towards the girl as your friend on the other hand did the unexpected. “Wouldn’t miss it.” He was smiling so brightly at her as he gave her a friendly hug. You felt your heart drop at the sight in front of you, Liz noticing your changed emotions as she sent you a wicked smirk. Oh great this was gonna be one fun night.


Somehow you were dragged into a game of seven minutes in heaven along with Peter. You didn’t realize they played such primary school games at high school parties but you shrugged and followed your friend over to the group of people playing the game. It’s not like you knew anyone else at this party but Peter anyway.

Nervously taking a seat next to Peter on the ground you lean your chin against your knees, your nerves not doing a great job at hiding themselves. Peter was too busy staring at Liz to notice though, you could literally feel your heart breaking at this sight. He really liked this girl didn’t he? Suddenly Liz stood up gaining everyone’s attention. 

“Okay so, whose gonna be the lucky person to spend seven minutes in a closet with me tonight?” She held eye contact with Peter as she spoke, causing the boy to visibly gulp nervously. You considered getting up and leaving but didn’t want to ruin your friends night over a look a girl gave him. She wasted no time in spinning the bottle and just your luck it landed directly next to you, onto Peter.

You gasped bringing your hand up to your mouth, this was not happening. A huge grin appeared on both Peter and Liz’s faces and your heart was just breaking more and more by the second. This could not be happening. 

“I’ll be back soon, wish me luck!” He patted your shoulder before rising to his feet and following Liz down the hallway. You were shattered, completely broken. You’d never felt so much pain and such, rejection before, especially not from your best friend. Your eyes began to sting, you could feel the tears starting to fall. There was no way you could stay here whilst you knew the boy you were in love with was with Liz Allan in the other room. 

You quickly rose to your feet and sprinted out of the house, not giving a damn that you had no way of getting home. So be it if you had to walk, at least you had time to cry without anyone else seeing. Wrapping your arms around your body you tried to keep yourself warm but it was useless in this cold weather. You sniffled tried to wipe away your tears, but every time you tried your throat would rack up a sob and the tears would start up again.

It wasn’t long before your phone began to ring, you knew who it was but you didn’t care right now. You let it ring out, not caring if he was worried about where you were or what happened to you, he was the reason you were in tears. After your phone had rung for the fourth time you gave in and decided to send him a text so he would stop calling you.

Y/N: I’m fine, walking home. Please stop calling me.

You weren’t going to wait for his reply, turning off your phone and stuffing it into your pocket. The salty tears were still streaming down your face and you weren’t sure if they were ever going to stop. Why did you have to be in love with your best friend?

Bubs || Conor Maynard

Summary: As far as nicknames go, (Y/N) didn’t quite mind hers. 

Dedicated too: How gorgeous Conor Maynard is.




“Bubs has been here for literally five minutes and she’s already taken over my kitchen.”

“Bubs, truth or dare?”

“Bubs, think fast!”

As far as nicknames went, (Y/N)’s wasn’t the strangest out there. She’d only ever been referred to as a shortened version of her name before, and was never given any truly sought after nicknames; but the day she met the boys, that all changed.

She’d been dating Conor for around three months, and after a series of totally spontaneous and unplanned events, she’d managed to meet every single member of the buttercream squad within the space of five hours.

It was crazy, really. You went from being strangers one day to acting as if you’d known each other for years the next. It was as if you all just instantly clicked, like you were the missing piece to their puzzle.

Back to the nickname fiasco, the first time you were ever referred to as ‘bubs’, was when Joe heard it on a TV show and immediately thought of you: for some unknown reason. The boys were all watching TV in Joe’s house and seeing as the kitchen and the living room were joined, (Y/N) had volunteered to make dinner whilst also watching the show from across the room.

It started off with just Joe calling her it, until it slowly but surely spread infectiously to the rest of the group, from Joe to Conor, to Jack and then Josh and Oli; eventually Caspar and Mikey caught on too. Within two months of knowing her, they’d already found a solid nickname that just eliminated any need for her actual name.

After you and Conor decided to go public with your relationship, the boys began to catch you in more of their vlogs, have you feature in their videos and help them with their setups. You were a huge part of the buttercream squad, and you meant alot to each and every member.

The viewers didn’t exactly know how to react to the nickname, they were still getting used to seeing you so often and the fact that the boys seemed so attached to you just made things a little more easy. There was never much hate sent towards her, though she was constantly spammed with comments that just said 'bubs’.

Everyone wanted an explanation for the nickname, but there really wasn’t one to give. Instead, when asked the question during Q&A videos or anything like that, the boys would just shrug and move on; which raised suspicion.

There was a period of speculation from the fans, a whole bunch of wild theories being thrown out into the open. In the end, Jack featured (Y/N) in a video and they gave the most honest answer the could, that Joe had simply heard it on the TV and it’d just clicked.

Tonight was a Friday night, and you and Conor had decided against going out with the boys and instead planned on staying home, streaming the new season of Game Of Thrones and eating takeout food. It was the perfect plan, until Mikey decided that he wanted to join in on the action too.

It’d been a long week for the majority of the boys, but they were all willing to plough through the exhaustion and enjoy their longly awaited night out; all except Mikey.

He was like a piece of gum stuck on the bottom of a shoe, once he’d made himself at home there was no getting rid of him. God, they loved Mikey to bits, but sometimes they needed their alone time.

But (Y/N) didn’t have the heart to tell the man to leave, so instead she found ways to include Mikey in their festivities, from playing a cut throat game of shot scrabble to having competitions to see who could eat their noodles fastest without using their hands.

Now though, (Y/N) and Conor had cuddled up on the loveseat and Mikey’d made himself comfortable on the one seater. They were watching some trashy comedy show that actually wasn’t so bad, and the takeout containers were abandoned on the coffee table, ready to be cleaned up at a moments notice.

“You tired, baby?” Conor murmured as you snuggle further into his chest, nodding slowly and yawning into his black shirt. Conor looks up and narrows his eyes at the guy in the leather jacket. “Mikey, out.”

He looks up in shock. “Wait, what? It’s only like,” he glances down at his watch. “Ten pm.”

“My girlfriend is tired, therefor you are leaving. So, shoo.” He says, a serious tone in his voice but even as tired she was (Y/N) could tell that he was only kidding. “I’ll pop over to Jack’s tomorrow, you’re filming, right?”

Mikey nods as he stands up and begins to gather together his things. “Bubs, can you bake some brownies and bring them?”

(Y/N) hums and glances up at him from Conor’s chest with another yawn. “Yeah, be safe getting home.”

“Always.” He grins widely as he opens the front door and leaves before slamming it way more aggressively than necessary.

Conor rolls his eyes, but they soften when he looks back down at his sleepy girlfriend. “Come on you, let’s get you into bed.”

As he stands up with her in his arms, she rests her head on his shoulder and breathes against his neck softly, causing the hairs on his arms to raise. “Hey, Con?”

“Yeah, bubs?”

“I love you.”

“I love you too.”

10 reasons to watch How To Get Away With Murder

1. Without Viola Davis already making the entire show already, she gives us Annalise Keating who is a total BAMF who’s monologues will leave you taken back in awe at the total power she has and she loves and protects everyone even when they don’t always deserve it

2. Alfred Enoch has an English accent that will blow your freaking mind if you were a Harry Potter fan and his character Wes Gibbons is an immigrant, orphan and you see him progressively getting more problematic throughout the show but it’s great

3. Gay Relationship: Coliver, cute af, and for once there’s no stereotypes placed upon the two like in every other tv show or movie ever, EXTREMELY problematic yes but adorable nonetheless and you never seem to stop rooting for them 

4. Michaela freaking Pratt, played by the most ever gorgeous Aja Naomi King, has the most interesting background by far and just a total boss ass bitch that knows how to get the job done while just absolutely slaying 

4. Laurel Castillo played by Karla Souza is a bilingual underdog goddess who will rise when no one is watching 

5. Asher Millstone, played by Matt McGorry, is the best slow burn of your life how he goes from 0 to 100 with the most character development by far on the show and will always leave you laughing 

6. Connor Walsh, played by Jack Falahee, never shows it but cares deeply for people when they need it most but also gives no fucks about who disagrees with him, also a hoe but we love him (also my favorite character !!!!!! )

7. You have this character who is an absolute ray of sunshine Rebecca Sutter who looks like she could kill you with one look but is actually the biggest softie on the show and in real life played by Katie Findlay 

8. Season 2 you get the most gorgeous adopted siblings Caleb and Catherine Hapstall who’s storyline will NEVER leave you bored played by Kendrick Sampson and Amy Okuda 

9. Eve freaking Rothlow who is the cutest, hottest person ever who saves the day when no one else can and is just way too precious for us played by the gorgeous Famke Janssen 

10. The cast has the best friendship and their dynamic with each other is so great and they live tweet and like your tweets and are so down to earth its crazy  (and they’re also really gorgeous) 

So yes you should totally watch this show because it is so diverse and amazing and just all around yes :))

anonymous asked:

Why do you think Gallavich is more popular than coliver ( should have been conniver)?

‘Coliver’ rolls off the tongue better, I think. ‘Conniver’ sounds too close to ‘conniving’… which, for this particular ship, I suppose you could take that either way lol.

Besides the obvious reasons that Gallavich has been around longer and has had a bit more time to develop a larger fanbase, their storyline is simply better written. The writers spent real time and effort developing one of the best relationships I’ve ever seen on television (before they burned it to the ground). 

I’ve always said that while I’m sure Coliver is endgame on the show, I don’t believe for a second that they’re soulmates. I still stand by this. Connor and Oliver have every possibility of being perfectly happy with other people. Gallavich on the other hand, suffer from the opposite problem. No one is sure if they are endgame anymore, but without a doubt, they are soulmates. No one could make Ian as happy as Mickey. No one understands him like Mickey. No one has been there for him like Mickey, not even his own family. And there’s not a single thing Mickey wouldn’t do for him.  

For five seasons, the writers on Shameless developed these beautiful characters and this amazing relationship. We see Mickey grow from a rough, violent, closeted thug to someone who finally finds freedom in being with the man he loves. I’ve never seen character growth that comes close to what Mickey Milkovich has given us. And I love the tragedy of it all. Right when Mickey is finally able to admit to himself (and the world) that he wants to be with Ian in every sense of the word, that’s when Ian begins to lose himself. Their relationship has been one obstacle after the next. Mickey’s time behind bars, Mickey’s father, Ian’s illness… 

And that’s not to say it’s been one sided. For the first three seasons, Ian fought tooth and nail to be with Mickey. And Ian never stopped loving him, even if it took him seven fucking seasons to say the words ‘I love you.’ This is why I still believe in Gallavich being endgame. If Ian ever utters those words to another love interest on the show, the words will be devoid of all meaning. Mickey is the only one for him. And we see this in S6 and S7 where Ian has the emotional depth of a zombie. He’s only there as a plot device to be improved by his partners. He’s like a blank slate. And when Mickey returns, so does Ian. The real Ian Gallagher. Ian and Mickey shine together on screen. They always have. They literally live and breathe together. 

I can’t say the same for Coliver. Not even close. 

Being Betty’s twin would include...

There is a very important lesson to be learned from this whole experience today. I do not expect people to be perfect or always have all the right answers. However, today we can see how ignorance takes its toll. It was made very clear today that supercorp as a ship was thought to be some inside joke to this cast. Not only was it tasteless and rude but unfortunately ignorantly homophobic. Why is the idea of Kara and Lena being romantically involved so funny to them, or seem so wildly out of the world of possibility? Sadly we know it’s because they are both women. Tell me a time that a straight relationship was ever made a mockery of or made seem impossible? Listen to me when I say we as a community are well aware when we ship two women together as is done in this context, that it is never going to be canon. That is the reality that we live in, where we are minimally and usually poorly represented. We know most people think of us as a joke. But when we support a show, give them ratings and money and allow them to profit from our viewership we at least expect enough respect to not be mocked. This is something that many lgbtq+ people experience everyday in life, being shamed or ridiculed by others simply because of whom they love is thought to be ridiculous. We don’t need it here, and we won’t stand for it. I know that it might seem like an overreaction to some people; but I can tell you that if you feel that way you are most likely straight. It is sadly just an ignorance that you are afforded and privileged enough to have. You see yourself and your love represented all over the place, frankly you have almost every tv show ever made to pick from. I was angry earlier, but more so disappointed. I know that I can’t expect them to understand why this upsets so many, it’s because you don’t live it. You have no idea what the struggle is like. You are not one of us. You are ignorant. The only things I can do are attempt to open that discussion, to try and improve that gap in knowledge for the future. It is the only way we will learn and grow. I can hope that you will do better and want that for yourself. We can only bride this gap if you listen, if you tell our stories, if you care. Because the idea of two women in a relationship should not have to be a joke, no matter the context.

On representation in fandom and why we need to step up.

This post is explicitly about The Adventure Zone – I’ve seen a few posts like this going around and I genuinely think that the more we talk about this, the better people will understand the greater issue here in a fandom that is growing by the second. This is also explicitly about visual representation (in regards to race & body) coming from a white guy, so I’m going to link these posts by whitetaakosarecursed, flovvright and roswelltxt for their perspective writings, which are really worth the read.

So, there are a few points I want to bring up, and trust me, this is going to be a long one. Not all of these points have equal value per se, but I do think they’re all worth addressing.

Do you have any really cute stucky head cannons? I'm in the mood for some real good loving between those two

i’m just gonna give u some bullet points out of my own hc stores,,, some fresh n softe hand-grown hcs for u

  • steve sings in the shower. he doesn’t really think about it, it just happens, and bucky teases him relentlessly for it. but while he’s doin it, scrubbin away at whatever goop or dirt or blood that he’s gotten covered in thanks to a mission, or cleanin his hair, or w/e, bucky’s just standing in the doorway grinning dopily because he fuckin loves his guy, so much
  • on the other hand tho bucky snuffles in his sleep. it’s not a snore, it’s not a snort, it’s this lil snuffling noise he makes every so often and steve absolutely adores it, he thinks it’s the cutest thing ever. bucky 100% denies it
  • steve yells at the tv when something he doesn’t like happens. doesn’t matter if it’s sports or a movie or a tv show or a political debate or what, he just makes sure the tv knows his opinions very loudly while bucky just laughs at him and every so often says “you know they can’t hear you right” then laughs more as steve yells louder
  • bucky likes loves napping in the sun, if u can’t find him just look for any large window and he’ll probs be on the floor in front of it, basking like a cat. sometimes steve will sit with him, stroking fingers through his hair, and they’ll either talk about whatever takes their fancy, or bucky will nap and steve will read or draw or whatever. as long as he’s with bucky he’s happy
  • bucky hates mornings. steve likes mornings more than bucky does, but not by much. he still gets up early though, and bucky’s either still asleep, or awake and whining about steve getting up. after steve’s morning run he always ends up back in bed though, usually after a shower, and he just cuddles back up with a complaining bucky and sticks his cold toes on bucky’s legs and kisses his pouty lips and bucky forgives him pretty quickly
  • bucky doesn’t like people behind him, but steve gets a pass bc he’s basically part of bucky anyways. steve uses this power for mischief most of the time, but often he just stands behind bucky and kisses his shoulder, wraps him up into a hug, and bucky just smiles indulgently and pats his hand before he continues whatever he was doing pre-supersoldier-limpet on his back
  • on that note, steve’s a gropey lil shit. as long as bucky’s cool with it he’s all over bucky, always has a hand on him or his arms around him, a hand on his ass or on his arm. he’s just constantly touching, most of the time innocently, sometimes less than innocently, but he just. always is up for some bucky handling and bucky more than just likes it tbqh

sleepover sunday!

What I sent to SyFy about Wynonna Earp.

Dear SyFy Gods or whomever probably won’t be reading this,

I wanted to talk to you about Wynonna Earp, this show is in the middle of its second season (I hope you know this) and has yet to be renewed for a third (as I’m sure you know). Here’s the thing you need to know about Wynonna Earp and why it needs a third season. I stumbled upon this show through Tumblr, I didn’t start out with the series but the moment I saw my first gif set of it I was hooked and needed to know what this awesome show was. I immediately went to your site and started watching from the beginning. Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) is the type of character I relate to on several levels, I know what it’s like to be hated by people simply because of your name, I know what it’s like to be treated as broken, I know what it’s like to run away from the fears and then having to face them head on. Wynonna is the type of character that many people can relate to, she’s the type of person that plays off her fears with humor, and Lord knows I do that too. I try to mask my pain and hurt like Wynonna does, but at the end of the day she is one of the characters that helped me through a rough year last year. Wynonna is someone I look to when I want to escape my own bullshit and deal with someone else’s. I know what it’s like to feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders and Wynonna makes me feel like having that weight on my shoulders is not gonna kill me.

Now let’s get to Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and Nicole (Kat Barrell) aka WayHaught. First and foremost, I want to thank Emily Andras for creating that couple, because honestly, they are the first couple that I could relate to when it comes to my sexuality. Waverly to me is the type of person that always tries to please others (another attribute of mine that I must work on), but she also started to deal with her developing feelings for Nicole and you could see that struggle she had. I am 28 years old and I felt completely ridiculous for relating to a television character like I did her, I remember telling my best friend about Waverly and her struggle and how it validated everything that I went through 10 years ago when I first started dealing with who I am as a person. WayHaught shows me the love and compassion two people can have for each other without being together, this couple is one of the most real couples I have EVER seen on television and sure as shit it makes me feel validated. This is the one show I know that I will get to see real life problems dealt with and not swept under the rug, this is the one show that I know that I can laugh, cry, freak out to and there is nothing wrong with that. I know this is the one show that I look forward to every single week. This show makes me feel like I can be a badass woman, hell you have three badass women playing badass women, and I don’t really think there is much acting going into that badassery (not sure if that is even a word). Another season of Wynonna Earp will not only give me but a whole group of women and men the opportunity to still feel like were badassees, to still feel like we are not alone.

Like I said before not sure if anyone will read this but know that this show means more to fans then Nielsen box ratings. Hell, who the hell still has one of those anyway. If you just look at social media you will see this show means the world to so many people. It means the world to the cast, they love this show, they show us they love us fans, and we want to be happy and we want them to be happy so please take the time and really think about how much one show that wasn’t supposed to make it, made a difference to a who group of people (Earpers).

Okay this is probably the most tinhatty meta I’ve ever conjured, but I wanna point out that s2 starts with gay shakespearean prince dudes kissing. And, instead of stopping there, s2 continues to be pretty obviously, in your face gay every dang episode. Like everything is really opposite of other tv shows… lgbt seems to be the norm while heterosexuality gets very little representation. From little things like Vogel’s “ewww” at the idea of pretending to be Amanda’s boyfriend to the obvious things like Tina outright asking about relationship statuses between Farah, Todd, and Dirk before saying that she herself is bi, it really seems to be the predominant lifestyle. Whereas heterosexuality gets very little representation, almost all of which is done in a negative light (suzie’s marriage).

I saw a few people joking about “heterobaiting” between Farah and Todd. Maybe it is just wishful thinking because that is definitely the one pairing I’m not interested in seeing be canon, but I can’t get the idea of Max Landis purposely “heterobaiting” his viewers with them out of my head.


If you are a BBC Sherlock fan at all, or even if you arent, you may remember the upset this past winter over the latest season of Sherlock… ESPECIALLY over shamelessly blatant queerbaiting. If you were following Max Landis’ twitter then, you may remember him tweeting about the finale of Sherlock and then specifically asking the Sherlock fandom exactly what constitutes queerbaiting.


Okay, so all that said… here’s my crazy, ridiculous, tinhatty, hopeful conclusion…


What if Max purposely “heterobaited” us with Todd ansd Farah as a way to cast even more shade on / poke fun at BBC Sherlock?? Like what if he is reverse queerbaiting by giving barely any heterosexual representation and then doing weird random hints that Todd and Farah might have something going on but then having them deny it. Farah denies any romantic relationship with Todd.. you know… like how John kept saying he wasn’t gay whenever anyone assumed he and Sherlock were together… even though EVERYONE assumed Sherlock and John were together. I mean, if Farah is Todd’s Watson in s2, does that make Todd Sherlock? But like they will never get together cuz this isnt really heterosexual representation! This is heterobaiting!!


I mean, Max is absolutely clever enough to do something like that. Probably, that isn’t actually what is going on… but BRUH, the idea of it tickles me so right for multiple reasons.


Also.. “heterobaiting” is the funniest word and I want it to be a thing.

Pairing: Yoongi x Reader

Genre: Angst, School AU, Smut

Summary: When you love someone so deeply, so irrevocably and so passionately is it really possible to keep it hidden? You knew you were screwed from the moment you met Min Yoongi, your new English teacher, he knew it too.  As the feelings between the two of you grow you have to face a difficult decision, are you really willing to forsake everything for this forbidden love? 


You always thought it was weird how some mornings, you wake up completely oblivious to the fact that in a few hours time, your entire life will have been turned upside down.  It’s like you wake up, eat breakfast and leave for school, and it’s all just so normal yet by the time you shut your eyes to sleep that night you’re questioning whether anything can ever be normal again.

That’s exactly what it was like the day you met Min Yoongi.

You were sitting in your English classroom marvelling at how slowly this day seemed to have dragged, you impatiently tapped your pen against the paper of your notepad and gazed up at the clock every other second. Right now there was nothing you wanted more than to go home and spend the rest of the day in your pyjamas watching TV shows.

There was a new English teacher and today was his first day teaching your class. And he was already ten minutes late.

Your actual teacher was on maternity leave so he would just be filling in for awhile whilst she was away, considering English was one of your best subjects, all you could do was hope that this guy wasn’t totally useless and that your grades wouldn’t dramatically fall.

You were tired and felt sore from clearing tables for a ridiculous amount of hours at the cafe last night, you moved your hand to rub the back of your aching neck and you inadvertently let out a sigh, it must have been quite loud because the guy sitting next to you gave you a quick wink, you quickly look away, blushing.

You didn’t have time for this right now. You just wanted to go home and not have to deal with all these people.

It was after another five minutes that finally, the classroom door opened, slowly, like he was purposely trying to build up suspense, but you didn’t care and went back to staring at the lines on the paper in front of you.

But when you finally looked up again and laid eyes on the man that stepped in through the door, well that was the moment everything changed.

@Riverdale

Are you ever just hit with the crushing lack of LGBT+ characters in television like real hard and have to sit down for a sec

And then when they ARE represented they either have:
-awful plot development
-zero personality
-no screen time

And then, finally, a diamond in the rough emerges… *angels singing in the distance*
They get good, long, meaningful scenes that are more than just making out somewhere… *a triple rainbow forms*
They have quirks and normal problems, and are treated like every other couple in the show… *flowers bloom, butterflies appear, all is well*

And then it’s fucking cancelled.

*sigh*

Let’s change that?

I mean, really. Would it kill you, CW, to give Kev an actual plot line?

A sim story about some clueless 20-30 something year olds trying to do something meaningful with their lives. 

This will be a mix of story telling and gameplay! There may even be a story within a story! 

A little about these 3 dudes:

PJ is a writer trying and failing to write her second novel after the success of her first. Avery isn’t sure what she wants to do with her life; one week she’s trying to be instagram famous and the next, she’s playing detective. Ezra has been in the music biz for 11 years and can’t seem to catch a break. Will they ever figure shiz out?
