Summary: Louis Tomlinson is newly single for the first time in his adult life. He’s just ended his relationship with his uni-sweetheart and things are messy to say the least. Zayn has never been good at coping, so when he flaunts his new man to Louis, Louis is less than surprised. He knows it’s not going to last. Harry has horrible taste in food, drinks beer but inexplicably has a six-pack, owns the ugliest boots known to man-kind and has a really kind heart. Louis shouldn’t still be so tangled up in his old life, and he definitely shouldn’t be having regular conversations with his ex’s new boyfriend… but things are messy.

I HATE BlackPink’s latest song. AIIYL sounds like it was some 9th grader tried to recreate an 80’s pop song for their music project, and failed. Horribly. The chorus is basic and it’s something I’d expect from a lesser known group belonging to a smaller company; which is something BlackPink is NOT. Lisa’s rap gave me a goddamn aneurysm. I understand the whole “kpop songs using English words/phrases to appeal to western audiences” thing, but a whole rap in english seems extra. “You can finna catch me” makes the entire song 100× worse. Who wrote that? Who thought it was a good idea to let Lisa say that? It’s fucking garbage, and I expected better.

“stay safe because I like being alive at the same time as you.”

Ever since you arrived at the tower, you had gotten along with everyone especially Bucky. Although he was usually quiet, he was really talkative with you and you managed to get him to open up to you about his fears as well as dreams.

But it killed you to see him go off on missions. Sometimes you would stress yourself out just by thinking of all the horrible things that could possibly go wrong during one of them even though you knew he was one of the best around.

After every mission, you would throw your arms around him as soon as he walked through the door. All of your worries disappeared at the sight of him. Bucky was safe and in one piece.

On this particular day, Bucky and a couple of other Avengers were off to a bigger mission that would last more than 2 days. You had learned to appreciate him for who he was-past and all. Some would even say you had a thing for him. You hadn’t tried to figure that out yet. Maybe sometime down the line you’d sit down and try to understand your feelings for him. But for now, you just knew you cared for him a lot.

“Hey,” you grabbed his metal hand. You watched as he stiffened at the fact that you grabbed that hand. It was still a sensitive topic and his least favorite part about himself but you didn’t care. You always told him that you liked it better than his flesh arm, anyway.

“Stay safe,” you smiled, “because I like being alive at the same time as you.”

Bucky’s eyes sparkled and a grin slowly grew on his bearded face. He nodded, telling you he would try to be safe but that nothing was guaranteed. You let go of his hand and quickly pressed a kiss to his cheek.

“I’ll see you when you get back.”

“You gonna wait for me at the door?”

“Like always.”

anonymous asked:

Im a libra mars in the 2nd and people say i get angered easily but im confused as to why because if both of those placements are ruled by venus wouldnt the opposite happen? I do have horrible problems with motivation though

Do you have a Fire Moon perhaps?

A lot of the Libra Mars I know are temperamental and it’s due to the fact that Mars is in an uncomfortable place when it’s in Libra (detriment). That could be the reason why your friends think you’re easily angered.

When Mars is in a sign that it doesn’t do so well in (Taurus, Cancer and Libra) then the native could be temperamental, hypersexual (or not at all), lazy and unmotivated.

URGENT FOR BTS FANS

So there’s basically this awful media analysit guy on twitter who said all these horrible things about BTS saying they’re corrupting the youth of America, that they ruined the AMA’s and used slurs against them so here’s a link to a petition you can sign to get bighit to sue this guy:

i forgot to mention what I love most about ragnarok: that rangarok took all of the character assassination bullshit from the dark world and age of ultron and turned it on its ass.

dark world implies loki killed his father to take the crown? ragnarok makes loki a blassé and nonviolent leader that just dropped his dad off at a nursing home. GOD OF MISCHIEF. not god of death or god of pain and suffering. MISCHIEF. 100% the most in-character Loki Thing he’s done since the first thor movie. not only that but not for one second does thor ever think loki capable of killing their father. because he isn’t.

the dark world makes thor say a bunch of horrible and damaging things to loki? ragnarok has him still struggle with it but legitimately come to rational terms with everything enough to show their disfunctional but ultimately loving relationship.

age of ultron creates the dumbest romantic trope in the history of man between natasha and bruce? ragnarok makes so much fun of it to the point where it’s shown to be as ridiculous as it is.

the dark world AND age of ultron make thor this broody and unfunny mythical being? ragnarok fuckin made sure that was no longer the case because what makes thor so wonderful is his moral compass, aloofness, and kindness.

they literally fixed the infinity gauntlet plot hole in 0.0002 seconds. this movie took everything wrong with the MCU and fuckin fixed it

god, what a movie

WRITHING SNOT PUPPIES

hey, you wanna learn about the largest amphibian in the western hemisphere? you do

GREAT

(no takebacks)

then without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to

found in the eastern half of the United States, the Hellbender is a giant fucking salamander. they are the largest amphibian in the western hemisphere by a wide margin, with adults clocking in at around two… feet? (that definitely says feet. jesus) long.

large enough to use as a blunt instrument

no one is really sure how these giant salamanders earned the name “Hellbender”, but it is thought that white settlers thought it was “a creature from hell who was bent on returning”, or that its wrinkly skin reminded white settlers of “the horrible tortures of the infernal regions.” (white settlers should not have been allowed to name things.)

…all right, yeah, it does sort of look like it crawled out of a Bosch painting.

these days, locals just tend to give them endearing vernacular names like: Snot Otter! Lasagna Lizard! Devil Dog! Grampus! Allegheny Alligator! aaaand for some fucking reason, Leverian Water Newt! 

these poor guys just can’t catch a break.

you’re hurting his feelings

the Hellbender is found in fast water streams and rivers from New York to Missouri. they breath completely through their skin (weird, but mammals can be judgey about this so I’ll let it slide) and hide under large rocks on the streambed, where they feast on crayfish and also regular fish.

maybe also feet

they are active at night and remain in dark areas during the day. to stay hidden, they have evolved light-sensitive cells all over their bodies. that’s right, they literally turned themselves into a single giant weird eyeball. what the fuck, evolution.

this seems like a good survival strategy (sort of), but it also means that to catch one you just have to go flip a bunch of muddy rocks over.

aaaaa! my plan, foiled!

unfortunately, human activity has been decreasing their number for years, and they are now regarded as Threatened. that said, there are many programs now in place for their recovery, including extensive captive breeding and environmental repair. 

hopefully in the future these amazing giant snot otters will make a recovery. we wish only good things for the lasagna lizard.

look at those eager faces! the future is yours, children

you can love villains and anti-heroes and antagonists without justifying their behaviour, You don’t have to make up excuses for the horrible shit they do. It’s totally fine to love these characters as they are, to accept the ugly parts of them- that doesn’t mean that you agree with the choices they make, it just means that you happen to love complex and three dimensional individuals.

honestly I see so many jokes about how lena constantly says she can always tell when Kara is lying and that she’s horrible at keeping secrets from her but the thing that’s tragic is that lena is actually pretty damn good at spotting what Kara’s feeling, even when she doesn’t know the actual details. it’s part of what makes them such good friends– they’re emotionally honest with each other.

so even if she doesn’t know that Kara is supergirl she probably knows when Kara is lying. And that’s why she always brings it up, she doesn’t know what it’s about but she knows that it’s happening. And can you imagine little 13 year old lena, watching her beloved big brother slowly descend into madness and she knows something is horribly horribly wrong, but she has no idea what and everyone tells her she’s imagining things, that everything is fine?

she’s never been more upset to discover she’s right.

lena may not know that Kara is supergirl but she does know that Kara is lying to her. except, Kara’s not lex–shes the best person she knows. and she’s not lying to any of her other friends or her sister, so it’s just to lena–she can’t fault Kara for that. she’s trying, but she’s a luthor after all. if the most moral person she’s ever met doesn’t trust her then maybe she shouldn’t be trusted.

Okay but what about the Avengers all being trapped by the Bad Guy and the Bad Guy is cackling about how he’s going to make them show each other their greatest fears and he points his Truth Ray at Tony and says, “We’ll start with the Merchant of Death. What do you fear, Tony Stark?” And the others are terrified because Tony’s face is stricken and then his shoulders hunch and he’s biting his lips against the words. What is Tony going to say? What horrible thing are they going to learn about him?

“Geese,” Tony says miserably. “I’m afraid of geese.”

Everyone has to just… stop for a second, even Bad Guy, and stare at him. Tony’s all flushed and embarrassed. “Geese?” Bucky whispers in disbelief.

“And I’m scared of water, and the dark, and I’m scared that someone will see me watching videos of kittens when I’m drunk and crying because I can’t protect all of them,” Tony continues, covering his face in humiliation. “I’m scared I’ll never be out of my father’s shadow and I’m scared of big dogs and little dogs but not medium dogs and I’m afraid to admit that Pepper’s schnauzer terrifies me.”

Steve turns to look at Bad Guy awkwardly. “Erm. This. This isn’t. Working. I think.”

“I’m scared of being handed things and Dum-E getting hurt and people finding out that Enchanted is my favorite Disney movie. I’m scared of losing everyone I love but I’m also scared that the reason I’ll lose them is because I’m too needy. I’m scared Natasha will get mad when I tell her that her sangria sucks because she doesn’t put enough pineapple in it. I’m scared—”

Bad Guy awkwardly turns his Truth Ray off. “Um.”

“My heart,” Clint says, clutching his chest. “He’s afraid we’ll judge him for liking Enchanted instead of the fact that he cries over kittens.”

“…Well we’ll just have to see what you think about the Hulk’s fears!” Bad Guy begins, but Thor punches him in the face and knocks him out.

“You couldn’t have done that earlier?” Tony asks him miserably.

Natasha begins marching toward him. Tony screams when she lunges for him but she just clutches him to his chest. “You stupid, precious idiot,” she hisses. “You only needed to ask for more pineapple. I would have put it in.”

“Um,” Steve begins awkwardly, but Natasha extends her hand to hold up a finger telling him to wait. “No. It’s my moment with Tony. I got here first.”

“Okay but no one is mentioning that the first thing he said was geese?” Bucky asks. Bruce punches him in the flesh arm probably harder than necessary.

“I’ll get your body back. I promise.

Isn’t funny how racists complain about two black Irises but zero complain about one green eyed Barry, one brown eyed Barry, & brunette, skinny Barrys? And suddenly you guys are comic book purists, but only when it comes to an Iris am I right?

Grant Gustin and Ezra Miller look nothing like Barry in the comics. But no one complains about it. It’s so transparent. 

Iris has been black for 3 years on TV already, you’d think people would be used to a black Iris. But nah, never underestimate the power of racists. 

“Classic.” Look at this coded racism/micoraggression.

You were planning on spending today in doors, either drawing or studying, not in the back of Steve Harrington’s car with a middle schooler in the front giving you mad attitude while telling you this story of how this demon-slug he found Halloween night turned into a demogorgon and ate his cat. Then escaped the cellar he locked it in by digging through the ground.

“Are you kidding me?” you asked, staring at Dustin with complete bewilderment, “It ate Mews!?” you frowned now, Dustin nodded, and you pouted slightly, “That’s fucked up, your mom came over crying about if we’ve seen Mews the other day!” you pointed, Dustin sighed.

“I know, I know- but I can’t exactly tell her that some demogorgon ate her cat now can I?”

You scowled at him, shaking your head and then looked to Steve, “So what’s the plan?”

Steve shrugged, “We’re going to lure it somewhere secluded and kick it’s ass- you know like last time,” he answered nonchalantly, “You’re here because for some reason you’re really good at gameplans…”

“Yeah, so like last time eh? Set up a trap? I’m not going to cut myself again like I did with Nance and Jonat-”

“No-no, Dart is attracted by raw meat,” Dustin cut you off, you turned to him.

“Who the hell is Dart?”

Dustin rolled his eyes like you were too slow of a thinker for him, “Dart is his name, (y/n)! But that doesn’t matter- what matters is that he grew, and now it’s roaming free and we have to kill him before he kills, so if the next thing you say isn’t how we are going to do it, then don’t talk at all!” Steve turned to Dustin like he was about to scold him or something.

You glared at the kid.

“First up, don’t talk to me like that you little dweeb, and second- it’s clear we have to get a bunch of meat and make a trail- it’s smart, but not that smart because it’ll follow,” you said, leaning back and digging through your bag, “Then we get gas like last time and-” you flicked the lighter in your hand up, Steve glancing at you through the rearview mirror, “and light it’s ass on fire,”

“And where will we get that much meat?”

“Oh you know we’ll just find it lying around- hey maybe we’ll skin and gut a cow, Dustin! It’ll be a fun experie-”

Dustin was about to clap back at you before Steve told you both to shut the hell up.

“Obviously we have to buy meat, and you-” He pointed Dustin,”Stop talking to her like she’s some kind of idiot, she fought one before, so she knows what the hell she’s doing,”

You crossed your arms all smug.

Dustin just simply turned away, saying something under his breath about ‘she didn’t really fight it’. Steve turned back at you, winking, you offered a smile before looking down at your feet. In a way Dustin was right, you didn’t really fight it, but you did help Nancy and Jonathan plan how to trap it.

You let out a sigh. Just an hour earlier, Steve had showed up at your house, telling you to put on your shoes and jacket because he needed your help. You, of course not wanting to pass up another opportunity to hang out with Steve, agreed. That was before you saw Dustin, looking impatient in the front seat of his car and were told you were going to fight another demogorgon.

You huffed slightly, and rubbed your forehead. You really, really didn’t want to do this, you thought you’d never have to ever see one of those things again.

I was gone for five minutes...

So my very first long-term campaign was me (a LG tiefling cleric) and four other players of dubious allignments. It was always a real struggle keeping us from just being a bunch of horrible horrible people. At the same time, I (irl) was socializing a future guide dog puppy and took him out to pee after saying what my next turn would be in a combat against a band of orcs.

So there I was waiting patiently for this boy to pee (he did), and when I came back, every one of the orc corpses had been stacked into a pile and lit of fire. I turn to my druid friend who’s the closest thing to a good person in the group and go “I just went to use the bathroom, how could you have let this happen!” and he just says “I was a spider at the time.”

Who Do You Love

Many of us, like hounds with a scent, have honed in on that one part of the Qstiel line: “I know who you love…”

But there’s a problem with taking a single line out of context: it’s easy to mold it into whatever we want to believe. Non-shippers can make a convincing argument that that one line is about Cas’ platonic love for several people just as easily as a shipper can argue that line is about singular and romantic love. 

No matter who you are, what you believe, we HAVE to rewind and look at the FULL CONTEXT. And the full context is whittled down to romantic love. From what we know from canon and from the symbolism, we can easily surmise that Qstiel is referring to a singular and romantic love. 

———————

CAS: SAM AND DEAN NEED ME.

Qstiel: “Oh save it.”
             
            Qstiel is calling bullshit. What has the narrative of the show been trying to define? Singular versus plural. Romantic versus platonic. And here’s Cas using the excuse that the brothers, as a unit, need him in order to get Qstiel to send him back home.

            Qstiel wants Cas to stop lying to himself. This isn’t about Sam. And Cas has no idea if he’s needed. Now Cas does want to be wanted, but only by one human (which we gather from the rest of what is said). It’s time for everyone to appropriately use we/I, us/me, them/him. 

Qstiel: “I have tiptoed through all your little tulips.”

            Let me save some time and space: read the lyrics to the song here. Flowers are a major symbolic tool in Supernatural. Out of all the things Qstiel could liken Cas’ thoughts to and it’s about TULIPS. Tulips represent true/perfect love with a mythology based on star-crossed lovers, one of which SAILS OFF A CLIFF… uhhh… Dabb? Is that a toss to: “So what, I’m Thelma and you’re Louise and we’re just gonna hold hands and sail off this cliff together?”.

            So basically, out of everything Qstiel could glean from Cas’ mind, he picks apart Cas’ ROMANTIC THOUGHTS. He doesn’t pick up on power-hungry Godstiel and use that against Cas. He doesn’t talk about Cas’ life before the Winchesters or even about being an angel. Nope, he brings up the tulips (true love) and in the next breath: memories and feelings.  

Qstiel: “…your memories, your little feelings, yes.“

            This is the second time he says ‘little’. Little tulips = little feelings. Of course, they’re not actually little, especially to an angel. Feelings are a big deal! Using the word ‘little’ is a mockery to Cas’ love. It’s another way to try and make Cas himself feel stupid for thinking his love could be returned (Qstiel mocks Cas’ intelligence several times). 

            Listen to Qstiel’s tone, too. He’s airing out Cas’ dirty little secret, in a mocking tone and with exaggerated facial expressions. There is no reason to taunt a platonic love. Qstiel is the bully dangling Cas’ deepest secret to use as a weapon against him. He’s mentally, emotionally and physically abusive to Cas in their scenes.

            And I don’t know about you, but when I had a secret love or crush, I kept it close to my heart. I would have been mortified had someone violated my mind and treated me like Cas is being treated here. Any other loves (familial, friendships) aren’t a secret and aren’t taboo. If just friends, just bros, it wouldn’t be a big deal.

Qstiel: “I know what you hate. (whispering) I know who you love. What you fear.”

            Qstiel didn’t say, “I know you love them.” He didn’t say, “I know those you love.” Everything in these statements is singular and yet packed with complexity: Cas hates not being with Dean, whom he loves, and he fears his love is unrequited. What fear is there in love unless it is a love with great risk to one’s heart?           

Qstiel: “There is nothing for you back there, no.”

            How can Qstiel get Cas to shut up, lay down and go back to sleep? Why, show him all of the horrible things he has gone through in the name of that (singular) love, of course. Make him believe it is one-sided and not worth fighting to go back to, make him believe his worst fear is truth. Qstiel is lying to Cas here. 

———————

After Cas mentions Sam and Dean, it isn’t, “Oh I know you love them but they don’t love you back.” No, it was, “You think you can fool me into thinking Sam and Dean need you? We both know the truth because I saw inside your head and I saw the ONE you love but it’s a shame he doesn’t love you back. Just go to sleep and forget about him.”


This entire scene was also another, “You have to choose: us or them,” moment for Cas, which of course is also in the singular. Cas can choose himself or he can choose to go back to Dean.  

Just as Cas faced Metatron, Naomi, Hannah and other angels, he also faced Qstiel, a cosmic entity masquerading in his God-given body/image and told him to FUCK OFF.

Despite the shit he’s gone through, despite the pain and sorrow, despite possible unrequited love… he still chooses Dean. His LOVE for Dean PIERCES THE VEIL OF DEATH so he can return to him.

It’s always been about one human.
Dean is Cas’ weakness.
It is all canon and it’s gorgeous.

I wholeheartedly believe this LOVE Qstiel is speaking of is singular, romantic and about Dean.
