and that everyone got a closure

Homestuck Meta Theory

Alright, so I know there’s a lot of people disappointed with the ending, again, I sound like a broken record by this point. And don’t get me wrong- While I love the ending, I would still love to see more of the characters and the story! I just feel it’s a good end as it is. I’ve made a lot of theories about what the End means and everything about Act 7, but all of the things I said, about the Jujus, about becoming freed from Paradox Space, it made me think about the rest of the story, and I believe it has made my entire idea of what Homestuck is change.

So the big question here is, what IS Homestuck? Most people, including me, when talking to someone who knows nothing about it, will speak about the story, the 4 Kids playing SBURB, and the subsequent destruction of Earth. And then mention its huge amount of references towards programming languages, popular culture, storytelling in itself, and it’s self-referential nature. But this Ending has got me thinking that maybe the reason why so many people have been disappointed in the End is because they got Hussie’s intentions wrong.

We tend to reference how the humor and the nature of Homestuck’s narrative is a little extra onto the story, and while it is true the story itself and the characters have drawn a big part of the Fandom, I thought… What if the important part of the Narrative isn’t the Story, but the Meta elements.

As soon as I made connection, everything about the ending began to fall into place. I have commented before that I feel Act 7 is like being shown the Good Ending of a video game without seeing its Neutral Route. 

The Kids have Earth, and Juju Vriska uses manages to flip the ending so that instead of being trapped by Paradox Space’s rules…

They manage to ‘End’ the game properly and get their Happy Ever After.

All while Caliborn is shown getting his power of Immortality, and while we’re left ambiguous about what happens to Vriska and Lord English and everyone in the Dream Bubbles…

Another thing people have complained about is the Character Arcs.

They say how ‘different’ the timeline is. What was the point of Rose’s alcoholism if then Vriska just swats the drink away and it never had any relevance anymore? Terezi’s relationship with Gamzee never happened. Dave and Karkat got together? The Game Over Timeline is bad, everyone agrees that people dying is never good, but they also claim that suddenly having all that Character Development changed made them unable to relate to some characters anymore.

And of course there’s always the mention of how Vriska, even though she’s an abusive 8itch, ended up being somewhat of a heroine, or at the very least not seemingly getting too punished…

That’s where the Narrative itself told us there was something off.

DAVE: rose we dont have fuckin “arcs” we are just human beings

Many have mentioned it, about how not having a closure to certain character arcs referenced this portion, the notion that the characters didn’t have an arc. The same way she then references Jade breaking Endgame ships and such. Rose’s power is Light, and her information source comes from the same place as SBURB and Skaia. It’s a game. Of course she’d have the notion that all of them have to fit certain predisposed stereotypes or their stories have to follow a certain pattern- Rose is looking at their lives since SBURB started as it has been. A Story.

But Dave is having none of it. Dave is beyond the thought that all they do has to follow a set pattern, and claims they don’t have character arcs. This might sound like a clever device by Hussie so he didn’t have to explore more of each of these character’s lives and he could close the comic leaving some loose ends but, there’s more.

Hussie? As an entity? Exists within the story. This would be all fun and dandy if it were a couple of stupid references and memes. And that’s what many people think! Most of his appearances in canon have been a joke, really. But…

Hussie joked about his influence on the comic, when his bot-self was about to mess up with the Kids in the Yellow Yard, but eventually didn’t do it. And yet? His fight with Vriska. His interactions with Caliborn. Everything pictured above? Hussie is a physical entity that follows the same rules as everyone else in Paradox Space and can influence the story. But he’s not a self-insert. He IS the Author. He is the one who wrote every of these characters and continued the story. He’s not another character, he’s himself, in the Homestuck Universe.

And then it began to dawn on me, that perhaps the Meta aspect of Homestuck was a bit more than Fourth-Wall Breaking fun and references to real life stuff. Of course, this train of thought led me to another main plot device that has never exactly been explained to its full extent. Jujus.

There’s the Sucker…

The Crowbar…

The House Juju…

A lollipop that could change character’s personalities, making them immediately make up for aaaall of their mistakes without a care in the world, start alchemizing new weapons, and end up exactly where they needed to be.

A crowbar that can break other of these mysterious devices, and more importantly, has been shown to be able to interact with the Website itself, which seems to be its own physical entity as well!

A house that gave John the ability to change the story, and that ended up being used against the Big Bad of the entire comic.

A puppet that trapped the Souls of various characters and became the gateway for the Big Bad of the comic to become who he is.

A mysterious pair of rings that oh so conveniently appear and disappear on characters, and leave you wondering what they really do, but clearly shown to at least be able to revive someone who, by no other means in the story, would have been able to get back to the world of the living.

Jujus are mysterious, when you look at them from the perspective of the characters. They have no beginning, no end, they just appear at some point and do a loop through time, ending up exactly where they appeared first. They are powerful artifacts able to change reality itself, with no explained origin… But we are no characters. We have seen what these things do on the comic through its entire lengths.

Jujus are plot devices meant to alter the Meta of the comic. They are not things that make sense in a true physical reality. They are artifacts that alter the rules of the plot. Because that’s what the plot is. A story. Because Homestuck is not real, and it acknowledges this.

Or at least… It was supposed to acknowledge this. Many have also claimed that the last updates were so disappointing, compared to Cascade, as Cascade managed to solve so many plot points, but this last one felt empty of everything. Plot. Character Development. That’s where Jujus and Hussie come in.

Hussie dies, in his own comic, a comic that acknowledges him as the actual AUTHOR of the events taking place. And later, we see…

Caliborn, the young version of Lord English, acknowledging Hussie’s death, as he takes the rest of Act 6 and makes it his. Through the use of the Command Prompt, through his own drawings, he begins to write his own story.

[S] Cascade had so many plot points resolved, and these last updates didn’t. Because that is the point. Ever since Act 5 ended and Act 6 started, Hussie has begun to lose control of the story. He was killed by Lord English, the big bad, who also took control of the narrative. Vriska acknowledges a narrator speaking, and forces the narrative to shift back to her opening the Juju chest out of frustration. The command prompts, John’s retcons- At this point, Hussie is no longer in control of his characters.

The Game Over timeline was bad, but it felt like it had more Character Development. That is because it was a not-retconned Timeline. The characters had struggles, the plot moved on forward, some people was possessed, it was all prime material for a conflict and a resolution afterwards! But Aranea’s intervention made it a Doomed Timeline. A Bad End. We all know how Doomed Timelines work, so everything that happens there would have been totally irrelevant. But John didn’t want to accept that. Roxy was still alive, and sad. And Terezi wanted him to fix things up. So instead of acknowledging he was in a Doomed Timeline, like Roxy did? Roxy, who saw her mother-daughter die in her arms, and claimed there might be nothing left for them. And meanwhile, John just managed to get his powers ready, zapped back in time and solved everything.

New problems arose in the new Timeline, sure, but not as many. And a lot of the character arcs were suddenly shoved back. Rose no longer struggles with alcoholism, Karkat doesn’t chase after Terezi, and becomes Matesprits with Dave after mellowing down. Gamzee, one of the biggest dangers, is shoved back by Vriska until he’s barely relevant anymore.

And all of this might just be me trying to find an explanation to the sudden loose ends not being tied. But I think, all of this, was meant to express more than Hussie rolling the story back or changing the story to fit other things. No.

We go back to Dave’s words. We’re real people, we don’t have arcs. We are real people. In a comic, where the author is a character, and that always acknowledges it’s a comic? Dave saying they’re real people is big. It was taken as a joke, because they are characters, come on! Right? … Right?

Well of course they are. But that’s the thing. Up until Act 6, all of the various characters were nothing more than that. And even during the Game Over Timeline, they were nothing more than that. But Hussie’s death, the ghosts, no longer relevant, trying to fight back against Lord English? Caliborn’s acknowledgement of a story and trying to take control of it? And finally, John’s powers.

The House Juju gave John something more important than being able to change the Timeline.

The ability to make Selfcest canon.

Wait no- That wasn’t it.

The ability to alter the plot to his own whims.

John’s zapping doesn’t follow the rules of Paradox Space. It allows him to change the timeline as he wishes and it still be the Alpha. Not only that, but he can also warp out of the story itself, sending people and things to the background of the website.

It’s when Vriska starts to try and find this Juju that everything about the narrative begins to shift gears. John now can change the plot. Which means he is not adhering to the rules that bound them all anymore. He can go back, bring people who were dead back to life, save his friends, and aid them get a better ending.

And in this new timeline he’s changed? Everyone seems a bit different. They have gone through different things, and are as confused as anyone else about what is going on. This is the moment where these characters stop being characters.

This isn’t a story about Four Kids playing a Game, getting involved in Shenanigans and trying to live a happy ever after as villains try to plot on destroying them and reality. Homestuck is the tale of the characters from a webcomic, becoming self-aware, and escaping the grasp of the author and the narrative.

I don’t know if this is what Hussie intended, and if it is, at what point he planned to start leading the story this way. I might just be crazy and be reading too much into this? But as I see it? It closes every single loophole in this story.

Doomed Timelines are meant to be nothing. They are meant to fade, and not be relevant anymore. But the ghosts are having none of this. They WANT to be relevant in this story again. They create an army, and head off to defeat the biggest threat in the entire comic.

Caliborn knows reality itself isn’t as it seems, and tries to make his own story within it. He strives to become almighty, and then begins to destroy and rend reality itself so he can make way for his own rule.

Vriska knows she’s in a story, having interacted with the very Author and the command prompt! But she is not trying to change the story- All the opposite. Vriska follows the rules of the story, closes loopholes from what she has seen, but tries to be the one who causes everything. She wants to be in the spotlight of this tale. She creates Bec Noir just because she had seen it in her screen. And knowing this is a story, she goes off of her way to find methods to defeat each of these villains, at any cost. Because in a story, once she defeats these big, powerful foes, she’ll be a heroine, and everyone will regard her so highly, she’ll be over everyone else. Just like she wants.

John? I don’t think he knows he’s in a story. But he has the power to alter it. And after he begins to mess with the timeline, the rules of Paradox Space begin to shatter around him and his friends. Time loops, Rules, Plot, why would they care about how a story goes, if it’s not a story, it’s their lives. They just want to be happy and get away from this cycle of destruction and death.

I’d even go as far as to say God Tier Calliope knows this. If her Land and her Earth were anything like Caliborn’s, she might also been in contact with the command prompt. Perhaps the fact her entire mission was a self-sacrifice to collapse the Green Sun represented how she, too, saw Paradox Space as what it was- A construct that kept these characters trapped as that. Characters. And the only way to escape its grasp was the erase its very existence, using Lord English’s destruction to tear a hole through the comic, and destroy it.

In this way, everything that happens towards the ending makes perfect sense. There are hundreds, thousands, who knows how many timelines, in which every plot hole will be closed. But we’re not following these. It would be easy to cause, say, the Condesce to wake up. Because of her immortality curse given by Lord English. Or the Draconian Dignitary get to the Frog Lily Pad. Something happens, interrupts the kids from entering to the new Session, and bam! Suddenly more plot! Their entrance to the Universe is blocked. Terezi worries about Vriska, so they begin to plot a way to help her defeat Lord English. The black hole in the Session that likely leads to Caliborn’s land becomes relevant, and they all have a trip to beat up Caliborn. Something happens to Calliope, her ring has ended up in Caliborn’s hands as well, he traps the kids, the Alphas beat him up, all loops are closed, we have a bittersweet, predictable ending. And this has happened. In many timelines before. Over, and over. Perhaps the one we’re following isn’t even the Alpha, for that very reason.

But it doesn’t matter. I talked about how the Jujus were a way to alter the plot, and let’s go back to this, and look at my theory about the Kids Souls being Trapped for all eternity in this Juju. The moment Caliborn uses this Juju, he kickstarts the entirety of the rules of Paradox Space. These kids we follow through the story, are trapped in a plot, with rules dictated by narrative that they HAVE to adhere too.

Then the ghosts decide that this is bullshit, and that they, even after death, want to still be relevant. Instigated by Vriska and Meenah, and aided by Aranea’s mind control, they manage to find a way they can alter the plot once again, a Juju. John touches this Juju, and suddenly he gains the power to alter this plot as well, and begins his and his friend’s journey to escape the clutches of Paradox Space and the comic itself.

John was trapped in the house all along. So of course, shoving his arm through it? He managed to grasp at the other side. He got a taste of what it was to be free. And he gained the power of changing the plot as a result.

Then, Vriska becomes alive again. She’s relevant, and bashes down on her ghost self. Ghost self that had at one point tried to make herself relevant, even though since she’s dead she shouldn’t be. This way, Vriska proves that, while she acknowledges the story as a story, and wants to be always present and in the middle, she never sees it as something she has to escape. She has no character development, because now, in this timeline that John has changed, she’s free to do whatever she wants, she’s her own person without a character arc, but doesn’t find the need to become said person. She doesn’t want to change, she wants to keep following the plot, and take down the big bad.

So Vriska takes the house Juju from her alternate self, goes against Lord English, beats up the Author of the comic itself as a last Fuck You, and then uses the Juju towards him. And this is when Alive Vriska makes her big mistake. By following this plot, this story, the Juju house crashes behind her…

She’s on Lord English’s side of the house. Because both of them know the comic is just that, a story. He knows about the narrative, and the author. So he kills the author, and becomes the big evil that must be defeated. Meanwhile, Vriska knows about the narrative, and the author, so she beats up the author and tries to become the heroine.

Caliborn and Vriska could very well strive to break free of Paradox Space in other ways, but instead they do what they do best- Be themselves, and fuck shit up in the process. And it’s this mentality that in the end, as the House Juju appears, tells us that both of them have been doomed. Doomed to be trapped in this Collapsing Paradox Space there’s no escape from.

Except there is an escape.

Because the door opens. It opens for the Kids and Trolls on the lily pad. And it opens for the Ghost Army and everyone else in the Bubbles. These are people that have been living aside from the story for a long time. The ones that are alive in the Session have had John change everything and the events happening after make them question Paradox Space itself. And the dead ones or the ones just stuck in the Furthest Ring? They fear being forgotten. They fear being erased by the collapsing Paradox Space, and had faced Lord English to try and become relevant once more.

Of course Condy’s curse didn’t wake her up. Of course DD didn’t appear. The moment the Juju appears, the story is done. There is no more plot. Because it’s not a story. The ones wanting to follow the plot are now seeing it crumble, seeing everything end. And the ones that wanted to become relevant against Paradox Space- Why would they need to even follow the rules? They are trying to escape them.

The Plot Holes are part of the plot in itself. John and everyone else didn’t need to fill it up. Because they are not part of the story anymore. We didn’t see their character arcs close. Because they are not characters anymore. They are not characters anymore. They don’t need to show us they have grown- Or maybe they haven’t even grown. They are always growing, learning. But now, they have escaped this evil Universe that trapped them and forced into cruel and crueler situations. They have escaped to a peaceful realm. They don’t need to keep following the story. They are happy and free to live their lives however they want.

They are finally happy.

God, just cancel it and give the show a decent closure. We deserve it, the cast deserves it, THE STORY DESERVES IT. This show has a plot since the beginning: Emma Swan, the lost girl, finding her family and helping everyone to get their happy endings back. She did it. And she got herself her own happy ending. Do not screw up with this. Do not do a reboot and change all the things we love about this show. I’ve already said it and I’ll say again: I’d rather it to end with only six seasons and a good end than to go on with more episodes without the main characters and with a whole new plot. 

Logan has left me in awe. In other movies such as The Dark Knight or Deadpool you see the characters beating and killing the villains but not in the way it’s portrayed in Logan. I don’t know how to explain this but something about this movie felt real. Not everyone got closure and it wasn’t like Logan stopped to give a speech while killing or had one liners or anything like that. One second the person was there and the next they were not and that is why this is my new favorite “superhero” movie. In a world full of people with the ability to freeze, read minds, bend metal this movie still managed to somehow be raw and beautiful. It was an extraordinary movie and every part of it keeps you immersed.

13 Reasons Why

I just finished 13 Reasons Why, and i am fascinated by the people who are saying “what kind of ending was that?? we didnt get any closure? i don’t feel better.” and the funny thing is…

that is the intent, friend.

The audience isn’t suppose to feel  better. What are we to feel good about? A girl killed herself. An innocent boy died because of someone elses selfish actions. Another kid (speculated) kill himself. Justin has to live with his guilt over Jessica’s assault. Justin just disappears, it seems in the end. Bryce seems to get away with what he has done, nonchalant. Jessica breaks down with the realization of what has happened to her. I won’t name everyone, but the idea is that, none—of these characters really got closure..did they? They are all suffering. Before Hannah’s death, and after. Life doesn’t always serve justice, life doesn’t always give you what you want when you want it, and it sure as hell doesn’t make you feel better all the time, This adaptation wasn’t meant to make the audience feel safe, and complete, and warm near the end. We felt literally everything every character felt during each tape and onward. We felt their pain, their fear, their miscommunication, their injustices, their different POV’s of the same situations. We went through all of that. We are suppose to feel exhausted, and upset, and uncomfortable, and disgusted and just completely disconnected and unsettled.

If you aren’t derailed and more so find parallels within the story lines to your own life then, doesn’t that make you wonder….are you……Hannah Baker, or are you just like everyone else?

Ending Fairy Tail

Ok so

I know Fairy Tail is practically ending, and we kinda know how it will end

But I really hoped it would’ve gone more like this:

Natsu and Zeref are fighting blah blah eventually Zeref almost beats Natsu and then Natsu is like ‘FRIENDSHIP’ and 'NAKAMA’ and 'OUR GUILD’ and stuff you know
And then he goes in SERIOUS overdrive like he did

But then Zeref still is stronger then him and beats him, but not kills him and he explains not killing Natsu with something like 'you will be gone anyway when i go trough the portal, no use of killing you and then remembering killing my lil bro for the rest of my life’ and Natsu is like kinda touched and stuff and Zeref turns around and walks towards the portal

Meanwhile Lucy sees that something is going on with Natsu again by looking at the book and they speed up towards the guild

And then right as Zeref walks trough the portal Lucy, Gray and Happy arrive and are like trying to stop him but it’s to late and Lucy falls down in defeat and Gray just stares and Happy flies towards the injured Natsu

And they wait
And wait

But nothing happens
And after a while people start to enter the guild

Acnologia is defeated, Anna is gone, so is Itchiya (sob)

Mavis wakes up

And everyone is trying to understand what happened, asking where Zeref is, if they won, if they lost, etc

And then Natsu just says something along the lines of, with a heartbroken voice because Zeref was still his brother, and he still feels the loss of his only blood connection, 'Zeref is gone, we won, nothing happened, we are still here’

And everyone starts cheering, things happen people start talking, people kiss etc etc

And then Lucy walks towards Natsu and asks him what’s wrong and Natsu just shakes his head while looking at the place where Zeref dissapeared, saying that 'he wonders where he went, and if he got what he wanted’
But apparently not because you know, there still there, their world did'nt dissapear

And the they leave and walk away in the distance with Happy flying behind them etc etc closure of ships and stuff

Time goes by, there is a timelaps, you maybe see the guild build up again, people laughing, a statue of Makarov in front of the guild with the names of loved ones who died, you don’t see particular people just vague figures and people laughing and talking about normal stuff

And then it zooms out

And you see a forest
And then a small house made of wood
And you 'hear’/see normal “boring” conversations like 'could you pass the salt’ and 'leave some bread for the others’

And then you see a hand holding up the salt, and it zoomes out and it appears to be ZEREF smiling and being happy and being normal and then it zooms even more out and you see his PARENTS sitting at the table and then it zooms out more but you don’t see Natsu

And then his mother says 'could you go get him sweetheart’ and you see zeref walking around in the house and then you see a door
And he opens it
And then you see a crib with pink hair peaking out
And you hear Natsu saying 'ZWEWEF!’

And then you see Zeref standing in the door smiling

And u zoom in on his cheek and mouth and you see a tear rolling down his beaming smiling face

And then it just goes black

The store I work in recently got refurbished. It was a relatively small store and hadn’t been updated since it was built some 60 years ago. We had signs up for months, detailing how it was changing, what was being changed, when the store would be closed, so on and so forth, leaflets were sent out with our paperboy to inform anyone who has newspapers delivered would still receive their papers as normal, as well as all the staff telling customers about it and warning them of closures and or anything that might be an inconvenience to them. But as everyone who works in retail will know, customers will always find something to complain about. 

  • 8 customers, complained that they wouldn’t get their papers and refused to pay for the days they wouldn’t receive them,even after getting their leaflets.
  • 5 of those said customers went out and bought their papers somewhere else, then phoned up or came in and complained that they now have 2 of their papers and refused to pay for the ones we sent them, even though they were given leaflets, and told in store that they would still get their papers. 
  • (This one I do feel kind of bad about) 1 woman, who I’d never actually seen before, came in mid renovation, looked around at all the stuff that had started changing, and proceeded to scream bloody murder at me, the only person on the shop front, about how this was going to effect her short term memory loss. Like, I’m really sorry to hear about that lady, and must be very difficult to deal with, but sadly not everything in the world is going to stand still for you, and screaming at me, a counter assistant, mid renovation isn’t going to change anything.
  • On a day where we closed midday, having put yellow tape around the front of the shop, putting up a big sign saying ‘SORRY, WE’RE CLOSED’, more customers than I can count, walked under or just plain ripped through the tape and tried to open our locked doors. Many of them yelled through the doors at us that they couldn’t get in. And once informed that ‘sorry, we’re closed for the day’ shouted at us for closing early and not telling them about it. (Even though you were told, I know you were told, I told most of you damn self yesterday.)
  • Multiple customers begging to be let in anyway because they just need some milk/some cigarettes/a packet of crisps. - I’m sorry but I cant let you in while work is being done, and even if I could, we have no tills to serve you on. - but I have the cash - I cant let you in, that would be dangerous.(Can you not see hard hat and gloves that I have to wear just to move stock out from the shop front?) - I’ll be careful. 
  • Customers after having been sent away already, called the shop to tell us what an inconvenience that was to them.
  • Customers phoned up our head office to complain that were weren’t open, we got a phone call from them to ask if we had our signs up because they were bored of telling customers that yes they do know that shop is closed today, sorry we cant make them open just so you can buy a packet of pasta or use the cash machine inside. 
  • At one point, nobody was in the front of the shop to tell a customer who had also missed the tape and sign that said we were closed to so he FUCKING SMASHED OUR GLASS DOOR AND WALKED INSIDE??????? WHO EVEN DOES THAT???? (Luckily the doors were going to be removed and fitted with new automatic ones later that week, be we (or the builders) had to boarder up the door with wood)
  • At one point, while the shop was essentially being gutted, having shelves and fridges and such ripped out, we had like a mini makeshift shop, like 1/10 the size of the full thing. (A tarp kind of thing acting as walls, one shelving stand, a fridge for milk and beer, cigarette cabinet, and half a counter strategically placed in front of the gap in the tarp so we could easily get in and out) so that people could get the ‘essentials’. Customers would routinely come in, look around, not find the thing they want, then try to just walk around the counter and into the part of the shop that was obviously closed off. In what store, anywhere in the world would you think it was okay to just walk behind the counter??? 
  • Sorry but you cant enter that part of the shop. - why not? - because the builders are in there, theyre working - but the thing i want is in there - if you cant find what you want out here, i will happily go check in the back for it - but I KNOW where it is!! It’ll be on that shelf - that shelf isnt there anymore - why - because were having a refit - so i cant have that thing, this is RIDICULOUS - if you can wait right here for a moment, I can see if we have it in the back - fine -*goes and gets the thing from the back* - why dont you have this thing out here anyway? you have those other similar things there! - I’m sorry we just dont have the space in this section for everything, we’re trying to keep it down to the basics - well I’ll be coming back for more of it so you should put it out here ready for me!
  • Sorry but you cant go through into that part of the shop. - why not? - We’re undergoing refurbishment, the builders are in there I’m afraid. - oh, can i go in and have a look? - sorry, no. - why not? - because its dangerous - but you can go in there! - yes, but i have to wear a hard hat while i pass and through - well can i wear one and have a look? - no. - WHY NOT? - because its dangerous and i could get into trouble for letting you in there. - but how will i know what it looks like? - you’ll just have to wait and see when its all done. - but i want to see it now! -(Internally: Youre a grown ass man! what kind of grown man throws a tantrum over this kind of thing??) 
  • Sorry but you cant go through to that section - but the thing i want is in there - *see’s the thing they want is wrapped up in a delivery dolly. Its not been scanned in yet but i know i can make a not if it for when we do get round to scanning things in.* Okay, if you could please wait right here, I’ll get it for you. - No, its fine, I can get it myself. - Sorry but I cant let you into that part of the shop. (at this point in time, one of the builders has noticed us talking and is very helpfully opening the dolly to get the item. He double checks its the right thing before bringing it over to us. the customer gets more shopping then i scan it through and bag it all up. but wait theres more) - how much did that scan at. - [item price] - how much? it was only [special offer price] last week. - That offer ended two weeks ago. - I dont want it then, take it off. 
  • Do you have any frozen veg? - Sorry, not at the moment. - You had some before. - Yes, but were undergoing a refit and we don’t have any freezers to keep frozen food in at the moment. - why not? - our old freeze has been sent to a different store and are new ones wont be here until next week. - how am i going to make a roast dinner now? - we still have fresh veg in our fridges in the back, as well as canned veg, I can go get some for you. - well what do you have in? - peas, cauliflower, parsnips, and we have some potatoes on the shelves. - can I see them? - sure i’ll get some for you, what would you like to see? - all of it, where is it? - its in the back, I’d have to bring it up. - can’t I just go look for myself - sorry no. I know its not convenient, but I cant let you through. - fine, bring me [these things] - *brings here the things* - *looks at all the things, frowns* - these arent frozen - (internally smashing my head against a wall) after 10 more minutes of back and forth, she decided to go somewhere else.

And these are just some of the highlights. 

I Know You Feel It, Too.

I’m no good for you, Y/n. I can’t give you what you need anymore.

Shawn, that’s bullshit and you know it. I don’t need anything but you.

That’s the problem. I can’t give you all of me from across the globe.

I’ll come with you. I’ll go wherever you go…We can make this work.

It shouldn’t be that hard, Y/n. Love shouldn’t be that hard.

dine and dash~masterlist


“Alright,” you take a deep breath, calming yourself as you speak. “I want to apologize. I led you on for years, kept Stefan in my heart when I should have let go. You’re right, and it was foolish of me. I’m sorry, Niklaus.”

“Hey, hey,” he whispers, one hand reaching down and grabbing both of yours. “Look, that’s all in the past. You needed closure, and I should have been more understanding. I’d never been loved the way that you loved Stefan, I’d never experienced that love myself. At least not until I realized the depth of my feelings for you. Then I got it.”

“Nik,” you whisper his name apologetically, looking over at him and noticing a small smile on his face.

“I’m not done yet, love,” he whispers right back, pulling into the hotel parking lot. “I just want to say that you’re forgiven. I understand, I do. Now it’s my turn to apologize,” he slides the car into a spot and turns off the engine, sighing as his eyes meet yours. “I apologize for not telling you how I felt sooner. I apologize for saying the horrible things I said earlier today. I apologize for bringing Valerie into this whole mess. After everything we’ve been through, I can’t seem to shake you off. There’s not a single time that I’m not thinking of you. And listen, I know there’s no way that I can wipe away all the negative things that I’ve done, but I would like to try. If you’d let me, of course.”

“Klaus, I’d–” he places two fingers over your lips, not allowing you to answer right away. He just poured his heart out to you, he loved the pleasantly surprised look in your eyes and he didn’t want to forget that any time soon.

“I want you to take some time and think it over, please,” he whispers, leaning forward and placing a gentle kiss on your cheek before pulling back. “Come on, let’s go inside and see what havoc they’ve wreaked.”

“Caroline,” Bonnie whines and stomps her foot as Caroline makes sure everyone is in their designated rooms. “Caroline! Are you sure we–?”

“Bonnie you and Kol cannot sleep together the night before the wedding! You two have to stay in separate rooms, no argument,” Caroline raises her brows at Bonnie, daring her to do the opposite of what she asked.

“But the wedding isn’t for another week! Are you seriously planning on keeping us apart for a whole week before the wedding?” Bonnie gives Caroline puppy eyes and Caroline bites her bottom lip.

“Bon, I don’t know. I have to consult with Y/N, and then I can–”

“I heard my name,” you and Klaus walk over to the two girls, a few bags in each of your hands. “What’s up?”

“Well, Bonnie wants to sleep in the same room as Kol until the night before. I said I’d have to consult with you before giving her an answer.”

“Before I let you know my take, I have one question: where the hell is the maid of honor?” You scoff, looking around for Elena. “We’re making all the tough choices and she is–”

“She’s on the phone with the DJ, yelling his ear off. She also just got off the phone with the priest,” Caroline shrugs and you both make a face.

“You know what? She can keep doing that. Now, I think Bonnie staying in the same room as Kol is a good idea, at least until the night before the wedding. Then she has to stay in her room. What do you think Care?”

“I think that’s a great idea. While she’s with Kol, you can sleep in her room since y’know, um,” Caroline clears her throat and looks away from Klaus.

“Right, Valerie,” you whisper, shaking your head as you think of the conversation you and Klaus just had in the car. “Well–”

“Actually she’s gone. She left,” Klaus speaks up and you all look at him, surprised and confused and relieved all at once.

“What do you mean she’s gone? Where did she go?” You furrow your brows at him and he looks down, slightly ashamed to own up to his failed tricks.

“She went back home, to Paris. She only accompanied me to help me explain myself to you,” Klaus shakes his head, slowly looking up at you. “She’s got a husband back home, some well-endowed French architect. They’re our allies and she offered to help me. She thought that if I finally admitted my feelings to you, I’d be less prone to committing massacres.”

“I bet she didn’t expect my newly found bloodthirst, huh?” You chuckle, taking in Klaus’s nervous appearance. “Either way, I’m spending the week in Bonnie’s suite. It’s bigger.”

“And bigger is better,” Caroline mutters under her breath causing Klaus to turn a bright red as you and Bonnie laugh uncontrollably.

“Right, well I’m just gonna, yeah I’m,” Klaus clears his throat, dropping the bags and slowly walking away from you three.

“I’m gonna take the bags to their owners, you two gonna be okay here?” You pick up the bags Klaus left behind and lift them along with yours, cracking your neck as Bonnie and Caroline nod.

“We’ll be okay. You be careful!”

“Will do, Care!” You call out and drop all the bags in their designated rooms. The last bag belonged to Stefan. You approach his room with a small smile on your face, the smile falling as soon as you hear the yelling. Stefan must’ve told her about what happened this morning.

“You kissed her, Stefan! Who’s to say you won’t do that again, huh? Who’s to say–?”

Me! I say that I won’t do that again. Ivy, please,” you hear Stefan’s pleads as you stand right outside the door. You hear how much it pains him to even think of losing her.

“You said you didn’t care for her, Stefan. That’s clearly a lie. This entire time, all you’ve done is follow her around like a lost puppy,” Ivy’s full out sobbing at this point, this morning’s actions taking more a toll on her than you thought possible. “I love you, Stefan. I can’t be with you if you don’t love me, too.”

“But I do love you, Ivy. I love you so much,” Stefan’s voice is coming out in choked whispers as you hear footsteps approach the door. “Please don’t leave.”

“Stefan, I–” You knock on the door and interrupt Ivy, unable to take any more of Stefan’s pain.

“Guys? It’s me, Y/N,” you whisper, secretly hoping they wouldn’t open the door. “Look, I couldn’t help but overhear your conversation. I know you hate me, Ivy. I get it. I kissed Stefan and I shouldn’t have. He’s not with me. I didn’t take your feelings, or his, into consideration when I kissed him. But I swear to you that’s all that happened. The only reason I did it was to get some closure. Our breakup happened so quick; I spent the past four years thinking about what could have been, pining over unresolved feelings. I came here and saw him with you, smiling bigger than I’d ever seen. He loves you. I just wanted the closure that he seemed to have found. I’m sorry, Ivy. I swear that this is my fault. Stefan and I care for each other, but it’s just platonic. I promise. Besides,” you chuckle, wiping away a silent tear. “I almost killed his brother, so you have nothing to worry about.”

You hear a couple soft chuckles behind the door, a few quiet apologies and declarations of love before the door is opened.

“Here you go,” you whisper and hand the bag to Ivy, your eyes meeting Stefan’s grateful ones as you smile at the couple. “I’m so happy for you both.”

“I still hate you,” Ivy whispers and you laugh.

“Understood,” you nod and turn away, the door shutting behind you just as it had all those years ago. But this time you got your closure. This time you had something else to look forward to.

The Other End of the Hall

“Guys,” Damon walks into Caroline’s room, desperate to tell his friends about what he’d just witnessed across the hall… only no one’s paying attention. “Guys?

Damon’s greeting goes unnoticed yet again as the girls’ voice gets louder, now joined by Enzo’s take on the centerpieces and Kol’s question about chicken tenders.

“Will everyone shut up?!” Damon’s voice grows a few octaves as the gang quiets down and looks at him. “Ladies, we have this week planned to a T. Caroline, you made sure of that. Bonnie, this is your wedding. None of us are gonna let anything go wrong. Elena, babe please. We need you to be the sane one right now. Kol, no chicken tenders at the wedding. Although I may be able to sneak a few into the reception for you? And Enzo, it’s too late to change any details about the centerpieces. Caroline and Y/N will have your head on a platter as the main centerpiece. Speaking of Y/N–”

“Oh come on, mate!” Enzo yells and everyone joins him, completely ignoring Damon’s previous comments. The yelling is louder than before and it’s now accompanied by obscene hand gestures. So Damon does the only thing he thinks will get everyone’s attention: he gets on top of a table and cups his hands to the sides of his mouth to form an impromptu megaphone.



The Beach

It’s a full moon, the light bouncing off the waves and the waves bouncing off your heels as you stare into the lake. You wrap your arms around yourself, a smile on your face as the wind gently kisses your bare shoulders and stomach. You hear footsteps approaching and you let out a content sigh, closing your eyes as he sits behind you and wraps his arms around you from behind. His face has made its way in the crook of your neck, a blissful look on your face as his stubble brushes against your jaw. You giggle softly, finally happy.

“Y/N?” You smile as you hear your name rolling off his tongue. “Is everything alright?”

“Everything’s perfect,” you whisper, nuzzling into him as he places a kiss on the side of your head. Everything truly is perfect.

Dear Valentine

Dear Valentine,

I hope you liked the card! I know it’s a little simple but I didn’t want anything too tacky or cheesy, y'know? Just something to show I care. I hope you like the chocolate too. I know white chocolate is your favourite!

Love, your Admirer xxxxxxxxxx


Dear Valentine,

I’m a little upset you didn’t reply. I know you don’t know who I am but it would’ve been easy to just leave a note on your desk or poking out of your locker. Did you just forget? I’d like to think that’s the case. You’re so busy after all, with all those student council meetings and swim team practices. But please don’t forget me. Sorry if this seems rude or demanding, I just want to hear back from you!

Love, your Admirer xxx

Reaction to The Great Comet - 5/7/2017 (200th Performance)

Hello there! This is one of the admins here on dailygreatcomet. I had the wonderful opportunity to see The Great Comet during its 200th performance! And let me tell you, it was amazing. I have seen the show before, but this time I wanted to observe everything that was going on around me.  I’ll put this under a read more if you’re interested because there’s ton of stuff to say:

First up: Jack’s mentally 70. He wasn’t frozen, he wasn’t in a magical coma…he’s been alive and conscious for 70 years and time just doesn’t affect his body. If that doesn’t bother you because you’ve got a healthy sense of fiction versus reality, cool cool (and speaking as someone who’s got some age gap ships knocking around my nasty ass shipping dock, I mean that sincerely.) But don’t stand around with your hand down the front of your sweatpants trying to argue that he somehow isn’t. Own your awful ships or go home.

This last season exists for one reason, and that’s to give closure. When this show first aired, I was a twelve year old whose biggest concerns in life were eating Hostess cupcakes and passing math. Where Samurai Jack was concerned, the only things I ever needed closure on were Jack’s name and whether he would ever beat Aku and get home.

The question of whether or not he would cram it in a woman was not this show’s drawing point, and it was not the reason I got excited to hear they were doing one more season.

It’s gross and completely forced, and if it had aired over a decade ago – if Ashi had just popped up one day and five episodes later, this happened – I honestly believe everyone would absolutely hate it.

Michael Scofield X reader

“Idk if you’re taking request or not, but if you are I was wondering if you could write a long Michael Scofield imagine where you visit him in prison and you tell him you’re pregnant and gets exicted and tells Sucre he’s gonna be a daddy? Plz plz” by Anonymous.
A/n: I’ve had another person request this one but I will write another so you guys will get a little more :)


I don’t know why but I was extremely nervous to see Michael today. I know he’ll love me still no matter what and he would probable be happy for us, but he’s in there and we’re outside. I know he’ll look forward to it, but I know it will make him depressed also. He’ll be missing most of our baby’s life. I can’t say that I agree with his actions but I love him and I’m willing to make it work.

The female guard patted my body up and down, checking for any items that I might be trying to transfer in. All while I was thinking how I didn’t want our child to have to go through this every week, making this her or his norm. She got to my stomach and smiled.

-“He or she isn’t carrying anything?” She said jokingly, with a slight chuckle as she said it.

I smiled, feeling down to my stomach- “No. Only thing (b/g) is carrying is my food I ate”

We both laughed and she handed my things that were checked- “Well, I can’t wait to meet the little (b/g)… Be nice to see some kids running around here”

I faked a smile and walked into the the room where everyone was waiting for their loved ones. It was coming more and more into reality. Even the guards were becoming family to our unborn baby. I didn’t want that. I want a normal family home where prison doesn’t feel like a second home and I can actually kiss Michael without guards thinking I’m passing him something.

Breathing got rapid, causing me to have to sit before fainting. I couldn’t do this, I didn’t want to. But then I saw Michael enter. His diamond eyes meeting mine and that beautiful smile of his raising as he found me waiting for him; just like the day when I agreed to go out on a date with him. Just like that I had calmed and I felt ready.

I basically leaped up from my seat, wrapping my arms around him before guards made us come apart; which then I sat back down.

I played with his fingers for awhile, stopping myself from kissing him as he was just a seat away in front of me.

A began- “Michael. I have something to tell you”

He smiled again- “I have something to tell you too, but you go first”

I shook my head, no- “You go first, please” I quickly drank my water, giving myself time to think of how I was going to tell him.

“The tattoo, the plan and everything I was telling you; it’s working so far. I could be out sooner then I thought”

A single tear dropped down my cheek. The smile I was holding before was still raised, but it was because I was in shock.

“Soon as I get out of here I will kiss you and we’ll run together” my smile dropped and I looked down to his hands that I didn’t realise I was still fiddling with- “I know it won’t be romantic but we don’t have kids so it’ll be easy”

I let out a chuckle, tears still flowing. I covered my face with my hand which caught the tears. My laughter became cries.

-“Y/n? What’s wrong? You okay?”

I shook my head, no while my hands were still covering my face. I couldn’t believe this. I ruined everything- “I should go”

I stood up, but Michael grabbed my arm; getting a warning from one of the guards but I assured them that I was okay.

“I know I can’t make you stay. But next week when you visit me I’ll explain everything more and it won’t sound scary”

Both of us stood. I stroked his jawline before allowing my hands to hang loose- “I don’t think I should come back, baby” I said as I struggle to talk through the tears.

-“What!? No! Y/n, please don’t leave me. I can’t do this without you”

-“Baby, I’m pregnant” I looked down. Scared to see his reaction but once I looked back up he had a massive grin on his face and his arms in the air in victory.

“I’M GOING TO BE A DAD!” He yelled. Making extra sure everyone could hear so that he could let me know he was okay with all of it. I laughed. My tears quickly drying up- “Now you yell that you’re going to be mummy”

-“No” I chuckled. Holding his hand. He got ready to yell out our embarrassing moment we had together in bed- “ I’M GOING TO BE A MUMMY!”

We both chuckled together, coming closure and closure together till we were looking at each others lips. We knew we only had a minute left so we used that time wisely. Our lips clasped together while our tongues played with each other. His hand around my hip brought me closure to him. Everything around us faded out until two guards pulled us away.

The guards were yelling non stop to stop running, but I couldn’t hold it in. The moment I saw Sucre I yelled- “I’m gonna be a daddy!” It took him awhile for him to realise but once he did we both celebrated.

-“Congrats, man. Maybe our kids will form to make a football team”

-“I hope. But I know it’s going to be a girl, and she’s going to be just like her mum”

-“That also likes football” Sucre added. Creating humour.

It’s Me (Part 2)

Hi Everyone! So glad you enjoyed the first part of this story. Here is the next part which takes place immediately where it left off! I’m leaving this open for the possibility of other one, so you will get closure in this story but if you would like other part (Maybe her conversation with Peta? Or something else), Let me know! Like/Reblog! And keep the comments coming :) I love reading them! 

After she had gotten dropped off at her house, instead of going inside-Sharna got right in her car. Peta had told her that he wasn’t home but she knew where she would find him. She drove to the dance studio where he and Normani had been having most of their rehearsals. She saw the light on in the corner studio and felt her heart rate pick up. She parked the car and got out, running towards the door. She walked up all four flights of stairs and slowed herself as she approached the door. It was open and she could see him inside, alone, running through his choreography , assessing each move. She poked her head in “Hey.” 

“Hey!!” He said excitedly. “What are you doing here?”

“Came to find you. Thought you might be here.”

// I think I finally realized one of the major reasons why the Magi Final Arc unsettles me so much…

It’s because none of these characters have solid personal reason to fight Sinbad. Sure, they’re all here to save the day from a crazed man whose ambitions have gone to his head but a personal reason is important here. 

In a narrative that often blurs the line between Right or Wrong / Good or Evil, a personal reason allows the story to be more relatable, hence producing a proper conflict.

Without further ado, here’s my analysis on how this team can be improved + my own personal recommendations on who really deserves to slap the sh*t out of Sinbad

(DISCLAIMER: I do not hate any of these characters. This post is not meant to bash any of them but to provide deeper insight on their objectives.)
