and you get this instead

Loads that were guaranteed to make me cry and I didn’t even stock up on tissues, how silly of me!! Haha. He started off talking about his early life, where he began, how he got into acting, how he finally persuaded his mum to let him go on a lads holiday at 17 and then he ended up getting a phone call for the Emmerdale audition and flew back (he said a married couple wished him luck on the plane and said they hope to see him on tv one day and I fully choked on my tears).

He spoke about how much he loves and enjoys what he does despite the 20,000 miles on the M62, how the drama makes the show and that’s his favourite to play, how each character has their story but “well, maybe not Adam” (hahaha I love them two and their cat fights), how robron has created a huge love (of course that was gonna be brought up somewhere), how he was only supposed to be in 12 eps and now he literally is king of Emmerdale - well he didn’t say that but we all told him and applauded him on how much of a success he’s achieved and brought to the show whilst he smiled like a soft smol bean who is way too humble and kind hearted to be on this earth.

The sobs got louder when he moved on to talking about Once Upon A Smile and how it’s his pride and joy. How it started out with the sad loss of Gavin that hit him hard, how he was at the funeral and saw the two separate families not speaking to each other and thought something needs to be done here. It started with financial support and moved onto real emotional support. He started telling stories from families and children and people who’ve lost their spouse who he’s helped over the years (it really was so sad but I don’t want to be the one to tell someone else’s story so I’ll leave that out) and then he mentioned the Manchester terrorist attack and kinda had to slow down his speech a little and that’s when it got real moving and I started thinking about anything and everything and to cut a long story short I wanted to bawl my eyes out but kept my cool as much as possible because precious makeup ygm?!??

Then finally he talked about his family and how he wouldn’t be here without them (he had his brother with him today it was cute), he gave the cutest most emotional speech about how anything is possible and then with so much commendation and admiration from the host (who I swear was more of a stan than us lmao) he said however modest he may be, however much he loves being at Emmerdale and hopes to be there 5 years+ down the line, if he isn’t then ultimately he’s ok because the charity is everything and then I was a mess snivelling and feeling like a proper proud mother. Hearing him tell his personal stories to a room full of (his words) wonderful ladies who love him and are inspired by his work, there was just something v special about it! ❤️

I saw a pic with Mishima in his full gym clothes and he was so cute this monster happened

anyway I feel like someone as tiny as Mishima playing sports would be so cute to watch? I like to think he’s pretty decent at it since he was in a sports club (I assume to stand out, but well things didn’t work out.… .)

i also like to think of Ryuji as the Tired Best Friend who knows Akira has a crush on Mishima but has to watch Mishima unknowingly side-step all the damn time (gdi ryuji, blocking me at the school fest too)

Last pic is kinda a sad thought :’)

Ravenclaws and Slytherins have a lot friendly debates. But they get heated very fast, which is when Hufflepuffs come in to calm everyone down, while Gryffindors try to egg them on. The most heated debates are usually about pie vs. ice cream and other similar subjects.

the crows as history of the entire world i guess quotes

Kaz: now you can buy your way out of hell

Inej: you could make a religion out of this

Jesper: look at those guns

Wylan: ~it’s a star~

Matthias: the northern north

Nina: there’s no food yet, so I don’t care

The Sun: Your Guiding Light

Your sun sign represents your pride, ego, and what you like about yourself, as well as what qualities you admire in others. All the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun; this celestial body gives our world structure, stability, life, and light.

When you do things for the right reason, you are more likely to find happiness and success. Your sun sign, the constellation that rules your inner guiding light, indicates what that (right) reason might be.

You should do things…

Aries: for yourself, because you fucking feel like it.

Taurus: because you want to, and only because you want to.

Gemini: because you want to know more about the world around you.

Cancer: because they make you feel safe, cared for, and comfortable.

Leo: because they bring you attention, love, and recognition.

Virgo: because they help you become a better person, and help others too.

Libra: because they bring you inner peace and sate your thirst for justice.

Scorpio: because they make you feel deeply and resonate with your inner truth.

Sagittarius: because they’re fun, and make you smile and laugh.

Capricorn: because they pave the way to your future.

Aquarius: because they help you genuinely feel connected to other people.

Pisces: because they help merge your internal fantasies with external reality.

Example/explanation: If a Sagittarius uses, say, Cancer’s reason as their ‘guiding light,’ they are likely to end up feeling trapped and stuck. With Virgo’s reason, they might feel bored, anxious, and burdened. With Pisces’ reason, they may feel lost. A Sagittarius who does things just for fun, instead of to establish future security (like a Capricorn) or to get attention/recognition (Leo) is more likely to accomplish their chosen goal, and have a good time doing it. Things come to you more naturally if you approach your goals with the correct mentality.

*also applicable to your rising sign

anonymous asked:

I like Mary. I think she's awesome. I don't see why she has to be evil.

Oh, boy, okay.

Listen you can like Mary all you want – I loved her too before the fucked up her entire story arc – but her entire arc was building up to be a villain, and a badass one that was going to go down with a fight. 

I’m REALLY not trying to be pedantic here, Nonny, but asks like this force me to pull out receipts, all of which I’m sure you’re not going to read, because who likes to be proved wrong, but I digress. I always end up sounding more harsh than I am when all I want to do is educate you on my perspective and what the narrative is teaching us.

THAT’S Why she’s a villain. When a character kills the title character of a show, they are coded as the bad guy unless they do a redemption arc that actually is a redemption.

Mary had NO redemption arc AT ALL. Even in S4, Mary is STILL manipulating and emotionally abusing Sherlock and John against each other with her fucking creepy-assed DVDs and her belittling of John in T6T. She still runs off to go do her little assassin things and still lied and manipulated everyone. And I know the argument is going to come up, but Mary’s gunshot was NOT a redemption. A redemption arc has the ex-villain doing a good deed and being genuinely sorry for their past actions. Not ONCE Mary has ever apologized for any of the shit she put everyone through. All of it was a plan, especially if she had creepy DVDs made FAIRLY RECENTLY (you can tell because of the hair style) to send out to people. Also:

YOU ARE EVIL IF YOU ACTIVELY OR POSTHUMOUSLY TELL SOMEONE TO GO KILL THEMSELVES.

That and Mary’s entire death scene was RIDICULOUS and completely contradicted EVERY rule that was established in this universe only 2 episodes prior on how characters die.

Nonny, Mary’s character arc is one I have been passionate about for many years, even before I was a Johnlocker, because her character was fascinating to me, and helped me understand the psychology and make sense of events that were happening in my life at the time. Right up until TAB, Mary was being coded as the next Moriarty. For some reason or another, Mofftiss decided to turn her into an “assassin with an heart of gold” and failed spectacularly.

If Mary truly was good, she WOULD HAVE TOLD JOHN FROM THE BEGINNING WHO SHE WAS, OR AT LEAST TOLD SHERLOCK SHE NEEDED HELP. HLV would have not played out as it did. Instead deciding that killing Sherlock was her only option so that she could continue to manipulate John, since she knew he was most malleable when he was grieving Sherlock.

You can read Mary’s character however you want, I could care less… well okay apparently I do because of this reply… But please, seriously consider that what became of her character really made no goddamned sense to the narrative arc the built for her and quite frankly really lazy writing. Just because she is a woman, doesn’t mean that she is nice and sweet and not abusive. Excusing her of her brand of emotional abuse and manipulation is really sexist.

People thought my mother was a nice person, too.

we´re on the right side of rock bottom

Robert awoke with a low grunt, running his hand over his face before squinting open his still heavy eyelids. The bedroom was dark with the curtains closed shut, only illuminated by the red light of the electronic alarm clock sitting on his bedside table. 5:20 am. 

“Happy birthday to me”, Robert grumbled, rolling onto his side and curling in on himself. “Thirty-two…You´re getting old, Sugden.”

Aaron had his back turned towards him, his frame disappearing almost completely under the duvet he had wrapped around himself, his face buried deep in the pillow. Robert reached for him practically out of reflex, slowly combing his hand through his husband´s dark brown curls. 

After the year they had been through, he still didn´t know how he had made it back here. How they had.
