and maybe doesn't make sense

Let’s talk about Sniper’s age

….I think Sniper is actually much younger than the fandom believes he is

Miss Pauling said New Zealand sunk into the sea forty years ago. That means Sniper is AT MOST forty years old because we get to see Mundy in a flashback right before the accident happened and judging by his appearance, he was barely one year old at the time. 

But that’s not all.

Apparently, they’ve been able to keep the city going for YEARS before the accident happened. That means you can take some more years off Sniper’s age. 

And then, during a flashback you also have Sniper’s father telling the ministers that he said  they should lived down beneath the sea ten years ago. And they confirmed that they did listen to him.

If you take into account that they maybe didn’t listen to him right away and took some years to build the city, I’d say that Sniper is older than 30 but definitely younger than 40.

(Plus, this comic events happen 4 years after TF2, which means that he was EVEN YOUNGER during TF2)

John is almost finished with his latest blog entry, when Sherlock suddenly calls for him from the kitchen.

“John. John!”

John sighs and stands up. He turns around, and there’s Sherlock, holding his hand and grimacing.
John frowns. “What happened?”

“I slipped with the knife,” Sherlock says and shows him his hand. John can see blood. It comes from a not so superficial gash near Sherlock’s thumb. He shakes his head. “Are you always that clumsy in the kitchen? Come on, sit down. I’ll bandage that.”

He quickly fetches his bag and when he goes back to the living room, Sherlock sits in his chair and looks at the wound in his hand with a frown.
John sits opposit of him and takes an disinfectant out of his bag.
“Give me your hand.”

When the cold spray hits Sherlock’s skin, he gasps and looks at John accusingly. “It burns,” he says dryly.

John grins. “Yes. It does. That’s normal.”
He begins to bandage the wound.

Sherlock observes him silently.

When John looks up from the now bandaged wound, he looks directly into Sherlock’s eyes. For a moment, it’s like he can’t move. He stares into Sherlock’s eyes, which are pale silver with speckles of blue today, and he feels a bit dazed.
I wonder if our life would be different, if I said or did something different at Angelos back then …
He doesn’t have this thought for the first time.
Actually, he thinks about such things very often.
He can’t prevent it from happening.
But it’s pointless and you know it.
It’s …

“John,” Sherlock says. It sounds a bit confused.

John swallows. He forces himself to smile. “You can go on now with … what were you actually doing in the kitchen?”

Sherlock inspects his hand and says casually, “I’m cooking, obviously.”

John blinks. He’s surprised. “You can cook?”

Sherlock looks at him like he’s a bit insulted. “Of course I can. But until now I didn’t see a reason to do it. It’s always a bit tedious.”

John blinks again. “But why … today?”

Now Sherlock’s look is definitely an annoyed one. “John. Did you forget your own birthday?”

Oh.

“No,” John says slowly.

But yes, he almost forgot it. Well, it’s not really a special day. Not anymore.
Harry didn’t phone him. And the rest of his family pretends that he doesn’t exist anyway. Maybe Mike will phone later. But until now, nothing has happened to remind John that it is his birthday.

Sherlock sighs. “Well, it should have been a surprise, since people seem to love surprises immensely, but now I fear I spoiled it with my stupid accident.”

“No,” John says quickly. “No, you didn’t spoil it, I’m … wow. No one ever cooked for me before. I’m … honoured.”

Sherlock looks at him for a moment, like he’s checking if John means that serious, then he smiles. “Good. I also bought wine.”

John blinks.

Sherlock finally stands up and coughs. “Thanks for your help, doctor. I continue now.”

“Okay,” John says a bit huskily. “I’ll … wait here then.”

“Yes. Wait,” Sherlock nods and goes back into the kitchen.

John remains sitting in his chair and feels very stunned.

Later, when they sit on the table, with wine and a very good meal - cooked by Sherlock, John still can’t believe it - they talk and laugh a lot. Sherlock pours him wine and asks him if he wants more from the salad. John feels good. He feels happy.

And when they’re finished, he says, “That was the best birthday I’ve ever had.”

Sherlock’s smile, both a bit shy and proud, makes his chest glow and his belly tingle.

He realizes, that he doesn’t need more in his life.
He realizes, that he’s truly in love.

wanna see my favourite thing they censored in the eng ver

in ep 21, when Candy is looking for Lys’s parents, she comes across Cas and Rosa that are kind of arguing when Cas says this to Rosa :

and Rosa gets SUPER offended… which doesn’t really make sense ? Cas isn’t saying anything bad here, it’s just a fact. so I checked the french ver to see what he was originally saying… and what he says is actually much more… suggestive in french than in english.

but at the same time, I KNEW that the ~suggestive english dialogue~ existed and not this piece of crap. I KNEW I read an english ver that was not censored. So I looked for it… and gave up when I couldn’t find it on yt. maybe it was just my imagination ?

then I finally found it, when I was cleaning my files. it’s a screen that comes from tumblr apparently. so here is what Cas originally says before they decided to censor him (??) :

and Rosa gets rightfully offended this time.

maybe it’s ironic that spring and autumn are my favourite seasons. they are soft and calm and pastel and they simply give a quiet scent of their essence. a dab of perfume. the whisper of a wind. they’re light and warm and cool. the colours are those in-between ones. the peaceful pinks and soft tumbles of orange and brown. it’s light caresses from the sun and kisses from the breeze.

and yet here i am. in all my terrible glory. i am fire and ice. never something in the middle. never a grey area. too much and not enough. too big and too small. too much of one thing and not enough of the other. i’m something of a paradox. two ends of a spectrum in a violent concoction that should never have existed. i cancel myself out. the positive and the negative. until i am neutral. until i am nothing. i am summer and winter. harsh heat and burning cold. i don’t make sense. i melt what i freeze. i burn ice. i’m just a puddle on the floor. no more significant than the charcoal at the end of a fire. i’m burning myself out. i am black and i am white. i poison each side of myself with the other. i cancel myself out. until i am nothing.

—  i am summer and i am winter

i know we have a lot of unanswered questions right now but i’m glad sana at least got her answer in this clip. and it might not be what she wanted to hear, but it’s what she needed to hear in order to make a decision, which is what’s been bothering her for a while.

anonymous asked:

I've been seeing some stuff lately (not here on tumblr, but elsewhere) about ppl claiming Yona doesn't deserve to be with Hak... like that she hasn't done enough for him to earn his affections or to be in a relationship with him. Idk it made me mad so I was wondering what your thoughts are about it?

‘Kay. I got this ask a while ago and couldn’t quite decide how to form an answer, so please bear with me as I try to put my thoughts into words. 

The entire idea that Yona needs to prove herself in some way or another to be worthy of Hak’s affections, to me, is ridiculous. For one, people fall in love for many different reasons, and just because Yona was a bit of an airhead and not a badass when Hak liked her shouldn’t mean squat. If Hak liked Yona for such a long time he obviously saw something in her that he appreciated and wanted to pursue. That’s his choice, so people making out like Yona needs to be someone worthy of affection or something are likely disregarding that Hak fell for her because, to him, she was worthy of his affection. Now, I get that a simple response here is that, “oh but Yona didn’t like him back so it wasn’t good for him to like her, etc.”, but again I think this has no root as Yona wasn’t aware of Hak’s feelings. She never led him on or toyed with him, she simply liked someone else, Hak never let her know how he felt, and she therefore never viewed Hak as a love interest. Hak himself knew this and still chose to like her and not move on. That to me puts all these “not worthy” complaints on him. He could have moved on to someone “more worthy of his time” but he didn’t. That was his choice.

From a different light, and after Yona flees the castle and Hak starts to be more open with his feelings, I feel that perhaps some people who hold this thought don’t so much think that Yona doesn’t deserve Hak, but rather that because she didn’t return his feelings right from the get-go that there’s an imbalance and “Hak loves her more”, or “she hasn’t contributed as much to their relationship”, or [insert similar thing here]. In response to this I just… arg, I dunno, it just seems silly to think that Yona has something to make up for. Yona just… wasn’t too into Hak in that way at the start of the series and both have had to grow to reach the stage they are at now in their relationship. People are allowed to not like other people romantically, even if said person is super nice and would love them unconditionally. That’s called having a choice. And Yona is allowed to not like Hak’s sometimes iffy advances and tell him to stop. She is also allowed to start developing deeper feelings when the two begin to grow and mature together as they face different trials and support one another. 

I just… don’t see where the idea of “deserving someone” comes into this at all. Hak and Yona are just two people who have realised that they enjoy each other’s company and support in a deeper way than friendship and as such have started to grow closer romantically. Yes, Hak has dedicated his life to being her guard and has supported her for a long time even though one could argue he didn’t get out of it what he wanted (that is, Yona’s interest) but again, that was his choice. I’m not trying to defend that it was the right choice, but blaming Yona for his choice and then thinking she needs to make up for it just goes over my head. I really don’t get it.

Eeeh ok you know I don’t quite ship anime!Rei&Mariah. However I DO ship their manga counterparts. Hey, stop rolling your eyes. It’s not so odd as you may think, they’re both pretty different in there. Like, for instance, if in the anime their love is one-sided and almost brotherly (”Rei-nii”?!), in the manga they’re both more serious and wild (and their childhood friendship isn’t even mentioned). This is why headcanon them to bite EHM, seduce each other with equal passion………..

HC : jungkook is an idol in school and everyone surrounds him and takes pics and is just interested in him except park jimin and jungkook likes that and they get to know eachother more and fall inlove 💗 maybe lots of fluff? Sorry if this doesn't make sense but I'm having feels rn :')

+ Jungkook became a hit along with BTS during his sophomore year. And now his popularity follows him to school.

+ People flock around him, pulling out their phones and even singing his songs.

+ Jungkook is has mixed feelings, cause he is happy people enjoy his music, but It feels like only like him cause he is a idol.

+ Hiding from schoolmates but it possible. Jungkook sneaks onto the third floor and slides into a empty classroom with his lunch.

+ Jungkook sighs as he closes the door, relaxing before turning around. Jungkook yelps in surprise as he meets eyes with Jimin.

+ Jimin blinks in confusion before realization. Jungkook waits for the fan energy, but what happens is that Jimin nods his head before putting his headphones back on and keeps reading his comic book.

+ Jungkook is in shock as he slowly sits at a desk away from Jimin. He faces the male as he eats, expecting to see the male pull out his phone but Jimin doesn’t even spare a glance as he keeps reading.

+ Jungkook comes the next day and sees Jimin reading a different comic and he gets the same treatment. Jungkook comes everyday of the week and Jimin gives the same treatment.

+ The next time Jungkook sits next to Jimin. Jimin raises his brow at Jungkook before he looks back at his comic. Jungkook smiles as he looks at the comic.

+ “Iron man is better.” Jungkook teases. Jimin smiles as he pulls out his headphone and looks at Jungkook. “Nah, it’s all about Thor.”

+ Jungkook and Jimin bicker about marvel and Jungkook laughs. He has not felt so normal in such a long time. “Whats your name?” “Park Jimin, and you?” “Jeon Jungkook… you didn’t know?” “I knew of Golden Jungkook of BTS, but not Jeon Jungkook.”

+ From there on Jungkook and Jimin sit together during lunch in the empty classroom and conversation comes easily.

+ Jimin treats Jungkook like a person. When Jungkook asked why Jimin just shrugged “You can sing but that doesn’t mean you’re god.” And Jungkook laughed.

+ Their secret meetings go on for 2 months as Jungkook can’t help but get attached to the older boy. They exchange numbers and text all the time.

+ “You seem very happy lately.” Namjoon says as Jungkook giggles at a joke Jimin sent him. Jungkook smiles at his leader. “I’m very happy.”

+ “Lets date?” Jungkook asks six months later. BTS is on break and Jungkook has snuck to Jimin’s house. Jimin looks at Jungkook in shock.

+ “Are you allowed?” “No. But I want too.” “With me? Are you sure?” “My feelings for you are sure so I am.” “Ok, I guess.”

+ Jungkook is busy but he sends Jimin gifts and the talk/text all the time.

+ Jungkook and Jimin giggle as they kiss under a tree in a empty park. Jungkook happily snuggles Jimin.

+ They still use the classroom in secret and they feed each other as they use gross pick up lines on each other.

+ They date for 7 years before they get caught by paparazzi discovers them.

+ But Jimin just shrugs as Jungkook freaks out.

anonymous asked:

Flocklander your opinion please on something. Do you think it's possible that this weekends photos (Sam's included) were meant not so much as a reveal but as a confirmation? Like maybe a confirmation to the OL fandom or something? Still doesn't make sense to me but I wonder why not one news organization has picked up on this fiasco or tried to sniff out shenanigans if that is what is going on. At this point privacy is gone (at least on Sam's end) so he had to make that choice himself right?

I personally don’t see it as a reveal or confirmation. There was far too much distance between the dots that needed to be connected. So contrived and exhausting even for the most diligent follower of all the players. And news outlets a) don’t care about Sam alone, b) don’t care about MM at all and c) would never have any of this bullshit on their radar because of who is involved and how much damn work it would be to blow the lid off a story none of their readers would ever care about. What would be a story and invite a tsunami of attention, both initially and continuing, would be the leads of a show like Outlander walking and talking the relationship line. Some grainy-ass pic at a wedding of a C-lister and a no-lister isn’t gonna do it.

understanding my intrusive thoughts:

If I’m presented with the problem of crossing a canyon without a ready bridge, my thought process (conscious and semiconscious) might look like this: I could fly over it. Don’t have wings (or a plane). I could go around. Too far. I could climb down and then up the other side. Too steep. I could just step off the cliff edge.

This last option is obviously unhelpful, as it doesn’t solve my problem and would lead to death or injury. In most cases, my thoughts would move past this suggestion quickly, but sometimes it doesn’t. The urge to jump off a high ledge is probably the most common intrusive thought. This is most likely because it scares us.

Most actions that would lead to a large destructive impact take forethought, during which we are likely to find a better course of action, but all it takes in a situation like this is for that one rogue thought to make it to your leg for a moment, and the results could be catastrophic.

So, when this thought passes through my mind, I quickly recognize it as something dangerous. The problem is that flagging a thought as dangerous also flags it as important. Not one I want to just let float away. And the more I think about the idea, the more it scares me, and the more important my brain marks it as being. 

That’s how you can get stuck, standing by a cliff and thinking about all the horrible things that would happen and how easy it would be to cause them, even though it would be just as easy to step back, and eliminate the chance. Your brain fixates on that idea because of how horrible or terrifying you find it, not in spite of it.

This example is of the most common type of intrusive thought I know of, but it is not the only kind. In people with OCD or similar neurodivergencies these thoughts can become spirals that are very difficult to exit.

surgically modified and trained as a living weapon

sigmabunny  asked:

Hey so I was wondering. Chloe interprets thoughts as sound and occasionally images, and Caleb feels the emotions of others but also interprets them as colours. How would an atypical who was deaf or blind interpret those abilities?

This is such an interesting question and one I don’t feel fully confident answering, as I personally do not know what it is like to be either deaf or blind. But when Chloe “hears” thoughts, she’s getting them in the form in which the individual is thinking them. So sometimes it’s strings of words, sometimes it’s images or smells or tastes, depending on how that person thinks. If Chloe were “hearing” the thoughts of a deaf or blind person, she would “hear” them as that person was thinking them, which might mean that it would be devoid of sounded words and rely heavily on image and smell or that it wouldn’t include images and rely more on sound. 

By the same logic, if someone was deaf and the person they were “hearing” was thinking in words, they would hear the voice in their head. If a person were blind and “hearing” someone thinking in images, they would see those images. I imagine this would be extremely jarring and difficult to interpret for someone who was born without a specific sense - if they don’t have the reference point, it might be difficult to understand. 

This is not unlike how Chloe experiences “hearing” the thoughts of individuals who do not speak English - she can understand some things from images/smells/tastes/etc. but does not have the necessary information to understand the full range of thoughts. But basically, it’s like seeing inside someone’s head - a telepathic aytpical is receiving thoughts in the same format they occur in the thinker. 

Caleb’s interpretation of colors is more of a personal reference point than an across-the-board way of thinking for empaths. Every person has their own way of thinking about and feeling emotion - for Caleb it’s colors or physical sensations, for others it might be textures or sounds. Most empaths have some physical side effects for the stronger emotions, but they are able to understand which emotions are which based on their own personal experience of those emotions.
