and people ask why i love him

People keep asking me why I love Regina so much. Those who don’t watch the show can’t understand how a fictional character can mean so much to me. Those who do don’t understand how I could love a character that’s murdered, raped, and destroyed so much. Regina Mills has had such an incredible progression as a character. She started out sweet, loving, and hopeful, if naive. She lost her love and it hardened her. She succumbed to darkness and magic to try to regain him and only lost herself. She sunk in the deepest throes of self loathing and lashed out at everyone she knew because of it. One could look at Regina at this point, this mass murderer and completely cruel person, and say that there is no hope for her. But you know what? You’d be wrong. Because Regina had people who never gave up on her: Snow, Henry, Emma, and Robin, who unwaveringly believed that there was good in her and that she was deserving of love even when she herself had lost all hope. And in 6x14, we witnessed what the entire show had been building up to, and see Regina learn to love herself. We saw the same woman who’s put her life on the line countless times because she believed that it had no worth choose to value herself and show herself the same love she showed her son, and that those around her showed her, and embrace her darkest parts and love even that, because you can’t truly love yourself if you can’t accept all of you. And that’s why I love Regina so much; because they showed that even this chronically self loathing, miserable, anguished woman can find happiness and love herself, and find her happy ending through self love.

Magnus's entire thing with Alec in season 1 made me uncomfortable tbh. I loved all their season 2 moments plus Jace was a dick to Alec at times in s1 so idt malec is unshippable bc of how Magnus acted but like...ever episode was him telling Alec he was "being unfair" "living a lie" the weird pro bono exchange, even crashing the wedding fell flat for me bc their last conversation was Alec telling him to back off. Idk I think the issue is the writers are straight people who think that coming out

Th(Part 2 of malec ask) is about “just being yourself” which is why they give Magnus lines like “you have a choice to make”. I mean in the show nothing seriously bad happened but in reality, people like Alec really don’t usually have a choice. It’s being closeted or being fired/disowned. Malec having a secret relationship and then Alec being like screw if and coming out would’ve been hotter and more believable than Alec randomly being grateful over a nonstop guilt trip tbh…

i did like malec in season 1, my blog and friends can attest to that, but i truly did have some irks and moments that bothered me. i don’t necessarily agree with the whole “magnus treated alec better than jace” argument some people like to use, a) bc i think the jace and alec bond is a lot more complicated than that which i talked about extensively here lol, and b) bc magnus and jace both wanted something from alec that season and they both pushed him for it. but i’d rather not get into the whole jace v. magnus thing.

i think the writer’s just… rushed them? there were so many great dynamics they could’ve gone with and didn’t and they just feel a bit odd at times. i don’t necessarily like the whole secret romance thing, i liked that alec came out and the wedding moment, but then they just… dropped it? one of my favorite alec lines was in 1x12 when he said, “You don’t have any clue what I feel… so back off. This is all just a game to you, isn’t it? You flirt, you laugh, you use magic, but at the end of the day what do you risk? Even if I did feel something for you… you want me to give up my life for you? I have to do what’s right for me. I could lose my family, my career, everything. You just don’t get it.” There is so much in that and it is barely explored. We got Alec’s “I always knew I couldn’t have what I wanted” in 2x06, but that really doesn’t expand farther. There was an opportunity with Aldertree coming in to show the kind of backlash Alec was talking about. Maybe Raj treats Alec with even less respect now and his comments become more homophobic. Or we see a ton of shadowhunters are at the institute, it really wouldn’t take that much time to show them reacting negatively around Alec or taking his orders but looking unwilling to do so, etc. Don’t just tell me the Clave is homophobic, etc., show me. All we got was a glimpse with Robert and Maryse - who seemed more uncomfortable with Magnus being a downworlder than a guy tbh - but Alec feared for his life, his family, his career, etc., if he came out and I don’t get why. And also, it’s not like Alec was just some low level no name shadowhunter. He is Alec Lightwood, acting head of the NY Institute, and I’m expected to believe he’s seen no backlash being that known of a shadowhunter in an extremely homophobic society?? Yeah right. 

With Aldertree, the comment about Magnus being “a friend” was there, but you could’ve played even more into the homophobia of the Clave. Why would Alec lose everything if he came out? What would happened? I know in the books Alec’s coming out also influences other gay shadowhunters to come out - where is that arc? I know they have a gay writer on staff, but that’s only one and he can’t write every scene and moment and they’ve really dropped the ball with Alec’s coming out. Alec’s career and family and supremely important to him and that took a backseat this season which is annoying when it was such a big part of him and his arc last season. They truly, truly, dropped the ball on what they could’ve done with Alec’s coming out tbh.

As for Alec and Magnus, I agree about parts making me uncomfortable. Magnus’ “pro bono” line will always make me cringe - it always has. And the way he pushed Alec about the wedding… like for Alec’s own sake I get it. I get wanting him to realize he doesn’t have to do this or hide who he is or whatever, but it was the “I don’t either” line or the “you have a choice to make” or the anger Magnus reacted too in I think 109 when Alec told him about the wedding… like I know he likes Alec but he only knew him for a few days and it was just… A Lot to me. This isn’t about you Magnus; it’s entirely about Alec and what he feels he needs to do and his struggle with himself. I would’ve preferred Magnus confronting Alec about why he was marrying Lydia and for his family and stuff and making their conversations more about that and Alec’s struggle to come out, etc. I never understood Magnus’ hurt over what Alec was doing because… well a) it wasn’t about him and b) you’ve known him for like a day my friend he’s not breaking your heart and leaving you lonely like?? His response at times read like they were already lovers when they truly were not and still knew next to nothing about one another. Whereas, I think it’s 108, when Magnus comes to give Alec the report on the forsaken and Alec talks about his struggle and family and how he’ll never be the head of the institute, etc. I loved that moment. Idk; it’s complicated, but I also think that part of this does just fall back to them being rushed a tad. I enjoyed them and I ship them, but some interactions especially in s1 leave me truly baffled. The “dirty lair” line also still throws me - Alec’s confused facial expression to that is 100% me lmao

anonymous asked:

Why do some people call Triple H triple dad or papa h?

Well for me its cause he is the head of talent and the founder of nxt so the nxt roster (and some of the main roster) are like his “kids”.

And whenever someone wins the title he takes a “proud dad” picture with them.

Heck they don’t even have to win the title and he still takes the “proud dad” pic with them.

He just loves his “kids”

Oh and the authority storyline with Seth. 

(sorry for all of these pictures)

  • people: omg why are u taking pole dance classes? are you like, a slut or what??
  • me, an intellectual: who knows, one day i just might charm the love of my life with it and make them fall for me at a fancy banquet.

why do i gotta ask for people to let this 30 yr old man live his 30 yr old life. like. drink a beer phil. call dan a cheeky fucking cunt when he’s being an idiot phil. make a disgusting sex joke that’s so bad it’s funny phil. live ur life. do it for me babe. im sorry people still treat you like a 15 year old scene kid who wants to fuck a plant.

If you ever have at any point said “That person looks like a girl, why should I call them he/him pronouns? They obviously are faking being trans”

Consider:

1. You are not them

2. Not all people get to transition, wear boys clothes, or cut their hair because of their parents, and the only thing they can do is ask people to call them the right pronouns.

3. Some trans men still like their hair long/ feminine clothes because clothes and hair have no gender.

4. Mind your own god damn business and just call them what they asked you to call them out of human decency.

AW MAN WAS THAT A FUCKING RUSH

I love Raphael.  God.

You know why?  Cus despite the lack of patience and the harshness and the sometimes-sketch intentions, there’s this …

purity to him.  

It’s embedded deep, deep down into his very core.

It’s in the way he fights for his people.  In the way he takes it solely upon himself to provide for them and keep them safe.

It’s in the way he still feels bitterness over having lost his mamá.

It’s in the way he was too ashamed to ask Magnus to help him track Camille, even after Mags has long since acknowledged her abuse and moved on.

It’s in the way he FIERCELY insists to Simon that he and his own are the fledglings family, even after Simon had betrayed him.

It’s in the way he went to Simon’s mother and assuaged her fears, so that Simon could have some peace of mind, as well, without mocking Simon for his worries.

It’s in the way he has listened enough to Simon’s ramblings to know he had a band and the details of it.

It’s in the way he tried to give a lost boy purpose by making up a high post for him out of thin air.

It’s in the way he hasn’t quite given up on himself, either, and wants his own life to have meaning and worth, so he reaches and waits decades to seize his ambitions.

It’s in in the way the cogs in his head are always turning, always planning, always paying attention.

It’s in the way his face fell in sorrow when he heard of the slaying of mundanes and children.

It’s in the way that even after having a clan of his own, with followers and allies all around the city, when he was tortured and burned and walking around blindly nearly unconscious in pain, his mind drew a complete blank as to where to go.

And then he thought ‘Magnus’.

It’s in the way he didn’t even call or text beforehand.  Just a polite, humble knock on the door and an apologetic mumble through charred lips.

It’s in the way that even when a lowly, annoying, newborn fledgling starts to ramble, Raphael may grumble about it but his eyes narrow intensely and he listens on completely invested in whatever he has to say.

It’s in the way he talks slowly, smoothly, almost drawls lazily sometimes, but every word that comes out of his mouth has purpose.  And every word inspires people to follow him and to abandon pointless decadence, to become more responsible, to become better.

It’s in the smirk on his face.  It’s in the way he carries himself with the weight of  a fifties mafioso.  It’s in the way he gels his hair.  It’s in the way he enjoys his suits simple and classically elegant.  It’s in the way his pompous front comes not from his clothes, but from his strut and squared shoulders.

It’s in his responsibility and self-discipline.  It’s in his loyalty.  It’s in his piety.  It’s in his devotion. 

No one on earth - Shadow World or Mundane - so much as deserves the honor of saving Raphael Santiago, apart from Raphael Santiago, himself.

Stefán: [reading the text on the car] The travel agency that will change your life. Hey, we have to find out what their phone number is.

Steinunn: Oh, why?

Stefán: Because.

Steinunn: What do you mean?

Stefán. Because, I wanna try to get their number, a travel agency that changes my life, I have cancer, I’m gonna call them and ask ‘do you have trips for people like me?’ [laughs]

I have so many people in my inbox asking for how the bakushima asked Denki out it’s amazing - the answer is it was a disaster from start to end but what were you all even expecting we’re talking about Bakugou and Kirishima

Denki said yes anyway cause he’s a disaster too

“C’mon, Y/N, please?” Anthony begged.

“Why?” You asked your boyfriend, your voice close to a whine. “It’s cold outside.”

“So? There are so many people out there waiting in the cold, the least you can do is come out. They’d all love to see you.” He reasoned. “Also, I’m gonna be singing, so that’s a plus.”

You rolled your eyes, but you couldn’t help but smile at him. Anthony was trying to convince you to come outside for Ham4Ham, but you didn’t want to because it was the middle of winter and freezing outside.

“It’ll only be for a few minutes, I promise.” He continued after you stayed silent. You caught his eyes and sighed, knowing that you wouldn’t be able to stand a chance against his pleading gaze.

“Fine.” You breathed, causing his eyes to light up as he grinned. Anthony wrapped you a warm embrace before gently pressing his lips to yours.

for all the people who are like “yeah but why would zoe like evan back? it seems so forced.”

-zoe is in a severely compromised situation rn and is dealing w/ a lot of shit about not “mourning in the right way” and is looking for someone that isn’t her parents and isn’t the people at school who pity her to just kinda be there.

-evan is a nice kid. he’s probably a direct contrast to her brother and everyone else around her, because he’s awkward and pretty forward and seemingly isn’t consumed by connor’s death

-also evan puts zoe on a pedestal, he has a whole song telling her how wonderful she is. i mean, that can be really nice sometimes

-zoe is very very very very very intelligent and strong, she doesn’t want pity and she doesn’t want someone else to be in control. she wants to be in control over something, anything in her life which seems so panicked and haphazard rn, and maybe malleable evan, who seems willing to go along with whatever she wants, is that something

-zoe is literally 16? 17? years old, i’ve seen 16-year-olds get together and break up w/ someone they don’t even sorta know in the span of 2 days, so their relationship being kinda flimsy is actually more realistic

-and, like, have you seen ben platt (aka evan hansen)?????

^idk about you but i think ya boy is v attractive/cute, so maybe like it was all just superficial (also the show is definitely commentary about the superficial nature of social media, as evan’s “love” of her despite only really knowing her through instagram (in the beginning) is actually quite a main statement) 

-(also evan has a nice personality, too, i firmly believe, so)

-it was a while between the 1st act (the kiss) and the 2nd act (dating), and we don’t know what happened in the time between, and we can’t judge the circumstances and intricacies of their relationship with so little information

-also they don’t end up together, so maybe there’s a reason their relationship wasn’t built solidly, but rather as a more sudden thing, to emphasize why it all fell apart

After the Wake

Jody declined the breakfast invitation from the Winchesters. She knew Dean needed a little “Mom time.” Instead she hung back to get to know Asa’s kids a little better, keep a connection to him. And they were kind of awesome.

Sam sprawled out in the back seat to nap so Jody took it upon herself to talk to Dean about something that came up in conversation at the wake.

“So…I know I said dating is hard and you gotta find affection where you can…” She started.

Dean stiffened up. “Please don’t let the next words out of your mouth be ‘I hooked up with Sam’.”

“No! No. I meant, a couple people asked me about your love life.”

Dean huffed a bitter laugh. “And?”

“They asked why your husband didn’t come with you.”

“My what?”

“Cas. It seems like the consensus is that you and the angel have been shacked up for years. Now, I was in the weeds there but it really got me thinking.”

Dean ground his teeth in his jaw. Great. The whole community assumed he was gay. He thought he had a reputation as a ladies’ man and instead he was an old married guy.

“Spit it out, Jodes.”

“Did you think I would care? That I would judge you? Don’t you think Claire at least has a right to know?”

“Jody, I’m not shacked up with Cas. Okay? We’re just…close. Nothing to write home about. If I was settled down with anybody I would tell you. And Claire.”

She sat quietly for a few moments. “Well then why the hell aren’t you? You have something great right there at your fingertips. Get your head out of your ass and stake your claim.”

Dean was floored. Jody was actually pushing him toward Cas. A dude. An angel for Chuck’s sake. And nobody seemed to care about that at all.

“Jody…”

She just gave him a serious 'mom’ look. She held her gaze, boring it into his skull. He physically shook at it. She wasn’t letting this go. “Don’t make him mourn what could have been when it’s your ass on the pyre.”

“Everybody’s really so cool about all this?”

“Yeah, Dean. We are.”

He dropped his hand from the wheel to fish the phone from his pocket. His thumb went my memory to dial.

“Hey, Sunshine. Can you swing by Jody’s tonight? I miss you.”

Jody smiled at him and patted his knee. If Dean had glanced up at his rearview he would have seen a smile creep up across his 'sleeping’ brother’s as well.

I know people have mentioned this before, but I love the fact that when Archie asked Jughead about him and Betty, he called it a ‘moment’ and not “oh yea, we kissed” because I think it tells a lot about his personality and the fact that in reality, it wasn’t just a kiss.

He helped Betty and comforted her through a tough time and really was “there for her”.

get to know me meme: 2/5 films — the perks of being a wallflower (2012)

Had lunch with Craig today. Yeah? He said he was sorry and that…I was right to break up with him. I’m driving away and was feeling…so small. Just asking myself, “Why do I…and everyone I love…pick people who treat us like we’re nothing?” We accept the love we think we deserve.

Okay seriously I can’t stop thinking about Irish Dex.  I don’t mean like, Dex’s family has Irish roots, I mean literal Irish!Dex living in the States.  (I may have borrowed some stuff from my kiddo’s experiences when we moved to the States)

  • Okay so Dex’s mam gets a job in Massachusetts and they go live with her brother who moved there for University and just stayed because he loves working on a boat.
  • Dex is fourteen and confused about everything American like….  WTF is ranch, and why is everyone eating peanut butter on everything?
  • His face -__- every time someone asks him if he’s “British”.
  • His face all the time because everywhere he goes, people keep asking him to pronounce things so they can laugh at him.
  • He starts trying to temper his accent and mimic his classmates because he’s really tired of being singled out
  • And god help him if he’s asked one more time to repeat the Lucky Charms commercial.  Or if he believes in Leprechauns.
  • He doesn’t understand the American education system at all, either.  What do you mean he’s not sitting for exams?  Why does he have to take all these useless classes through his entire high school career?  He just wants to fix stuff, why are they making him take English still?
  • By the time he graduates, he can affect a North American accent really well, and he doesn’t get chirped for it as much anymore.  His natural accent gets pretty bad when he’s been home to visit family, or during summers at home with his mam and uncle, but he can get rid of it pretty quickly because he hates when people notice it.
  • His Frog year he experiences American St Patrick’s Day and wants to cry because what the fuck is all this green Budweiser beer?  And if he sees one more Kiss Me I’m Irish t-shirt he’s going to punch someone.
  • He really misses the food (the proper food) and the Guinness, and the parades.
  • He doesn’t get along with Nursey at first, and they clash over ideas of oppression.  He tries to explain what it was like growing up Catholic in Belfast, but Nursey doesn’t really get it right away because he’s super white and has red hair.
  • Later he does research about segregation in Northern Ireland and when Dex talks about it more, he understands a little better.
  • He lets his accent out more when he’s with Nursey, and as he grows more comfortable in the Haus, he starts relaxing over it.  He gets chirped, but in the same way Jack does, or Bitty, and he feels more part of the group than being othered.
  • Their first St Patrick’s Day together, Nursey leans over on the bus and asks Dex, “Are you Irish?” when someone sees a Kiss Me I’m Irish t-shirt and Dex doesn’t talk to him for the entire day.
  • Nursey apologises and later does get kisses.  It becomes a running joke between them, and for one of his birthdays, Nursey buys him a Kiss me I’m Irish t-shirt.  Dex only wears it at home, and only when he wants extra kisses.
  • Dex is angry a lot, because he’s always feels different, but it’s better as he gets older.  And he stops wanting to be the same as everyone.  He still gives snarky replies every time someone asks him if he’s “British” and has gotten in a few fights over the Lucky Charms commercial, but by the time he graduates he’s happy being himself again.  Especially with his adorable (if not incredibly annoying) boyfriend.
