aren't you all so proud of me

Context: after freeing some prisoners from the enemy the party finds the thought to be dead father of our dervish dancer

Dad: it’s been so long, do you still have your bow? After all we were a family of proud archers

Me: I’m a dancer

Dad: well I guess but tell me did you finally find a girlfriend? Your mother was

Me: what did you not understand in the phrase “i am a dancer”

Hi all! Sorry it’s been such a long time since I’ve updated. Things have been crazy with schoolwork, but now that summer is quickly approaching, expect far more frequent updates from me! As always, massive thank you’s to my honorary moms, @mibasiamille and @internallydeceased, for listening to me co plain and attempt to write this chapter for 2+ weeks.

Also, as a piece of shameless self-promotion, you can read more of my work, as well as that of my two pals mentioned above on our joint blog @turtlesoupstories!


Claire’s heart dropped like a rock. For perhaps the first time in her life, she was completely and utterly speechless. She was not sure whether she wanted to laugh, cry, scream, or pummel her Uncle to the brink of death. Never, in all of the years she had been in Lamb’s care, could she have expected him to proceed so thoughtlessly. She felt betrayed, orphaned all over again, as the one person she thought that she could always count on gave her away like a piece of property.

I thought Uncle Lamb was better than this, she thought to herself. I cannot- I will not marry Frank Randall, and there is no way he can make me.

“I know this isn’t what you wanted-”

“You know bloody well that this isn’t what I wanted!” Claire spat, the anger seeping into her voice.

“If you would give me the opportunity to explain myself, Claire-” He attempted to pacify her. With spiraling curls spilling out wildly around her face and her amber eyes blazing with rage, she looked like a lioness, and Lamb found himself in the unfortunate position of the gazelle.

“Save your explanation,” Claire retorted sharply. “There is nothing that you can say or do that will make me marry Frank Randall. I barely know the man!”

“It will be a good match. You’re both extremely bright, and Professor Randall has taken an interest in you after speaking to you at the University Ball last month.”

Claire could only remember the aforementioned ball in bits and pieces. She had needed to consume a copious amount of champagne in order to survive the stuffy, academic evening. She had been standing alone in the corner of the room, nursing her glass, when Professor Randall had taken the opportunity to stroll to her side. The pair stood in silence for a moment and Claire prayed to every deity she could think of that the lack of conversation would be enough to persuade Randall to leave her to her own devices. Unfortunately, it was not to be.

Hi there. I haven't been watching your channel for very long (I first found it in January this year) and until I watched your latest video on the BBC article about fake Peppa Pig videos, I had assumed that the children in the Kids Explain vids are yours. I just wanted to tell you that I think you're an amazing person. Taking on three children that aren't biologically yours couldn't have been an easy task :) x

Well thank you! To be honest (and Cerys knows this so it isn’t a secret) - I HATE kids. More accurately, most of the lazy shitty parenting that lets kids behave like their stereotypes when you’re out in public (but you know, kids are the ones still projecting so they do still annoy me lol). So yeah, getting to know Cerys and meeting the 3 kids was scary - if they were all insufferable the relationship wouldn’t work - but instead they turned out to be the best damn kids I’ve ever met. Proud to be a father figure to them - I don’t even want my own kids now I have them!

Also shout outs to Cerys and her ex Rob for bringing them up together until nearly 4 years ago when I first properly met them. Gonna be great members of society when they’re all older! Trying my hardest to keep the goodness of them going with Cerys now!

anonymous asked:

ALTERNATIVELY, what if in US and SF their SO just walked in the front door with a chicken on their head, two chicks on each shoulder, and a dozen or so other chicks and chickens following. SO just goes about their day like the feathery balls of fluff aren't there. When questioned, all they say is "The chickens have chosen me as their Lord and savior in this universe. They refuse to leave me alone, and followed me home for no reason. I am now the chicken god." With the most serious expression

Original ask:

🐓US Sans: Blue is so proud of you! He knew that you could get over your fear! He hardly thinks anything of your weird response and just goes with it. He’s excited to have chickens now and thinks that the peeps are adorable.

🐓US Papyrus: Stretch was sitting on the couch playing video games when you walked in and sat beside him, “Hey, babe, you’ve got a little somethin’ there”. After you say that he just shrugs and goes with it, “Oh, okay cool”.

🐓SF Sans: “ WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS? GET THOSE FILTHY BIRDS OUT OF THE HOUSE”, Raz looks at you when you’re crazy when you say that, “NONSENSE! THEY HAVE JUST PROBABLY GIVEN YOU BIRD FLU OF SOMETHING!” I hope you weren’t to attached because he chases them out with the broom. It you want him to let you keep them, you’ll have to speak less crazy.

🐓SF Papyrus: Rus doesn’t even question it, even letting the peeps sit in his hood.

Imagine how he will reward me when he finds I have done it for him. I gave you to him - the thing he needed above all to regenerate - and then I killed you for him. I will be honored beyond all other Death Eaters. I will be his dearest, his closest supporter… closer than a son…

anonymous asked:

It kinda bothers me when you get asks and the people are apologizing for their English because they shouldn't have to apologize. They're trying to speak another language that they aren't used to speaking a lot. They're trying and that's all that matters.

It doesn’t exactly bother me, I understand why people say it. But yes, just the fact that your struggling and still is writing and sending the ask in English… like bub, I’m so proud of you?? You’re doing amazing, sweetie ily

assistant-of-evil  asked:

Mother, have you seen how far your son has gone? Have you seen what he survived? Aren't you proud?

“You know you’ve got to be more specific than that! I have more kids than you can count on a hand Girly! My eldest Jeraxx is such a good farmer, and my youngest Serine has made herself a model girl scout training the youth, they’ve all made me so proud… Even before he left, Viggins always made me proud…"

“What do you mean survived? Survived what..?”

Hey Les Misérables fandom! Are you tired of seeing the same couple of ships on your dash? Are you a multishipper who has several severely neglected ships? Do you want to play around with pairings? If so gather up your ideas and get ready for Les Mis Rare Pairs Week which will happen exactly one month from now on a dash near you.

What’s considered a rare pair?

Any ship that has under a hundred fics on AO3, aka anything but one of the top twenty pairings.

How do I know what the top twenty pairings are??

I went on AO3, wrote down the number of fics each ship has and complied it in this beautiful color coordinated little spreadsheet (Go ahead and check out how popular ships are–as of right now Combeferre/Eponine and Bahorel/Feuilly have the exact number of fics and there are the same number of fics for Feuilly/Eponine, Feuilly/Enjolras and Feuilly/Jehan. The more you know).

Do I have to write fic?

Absolutely not. Anything is welcome, art, headcanons, photosets, cosplay, fanmixes–as long as it’s focused on a rare pair go wild.

Does it have to be ship related?

Platonic pairings are welcome as well! They don’t have to follow the same rules as above (Enjolras/Courfeyrac/Combeferre is allowed but pretty much everyone and their mother writes them as best friends so maybe don’t do anything for that friendship). Just think about who you never really see interacting and go for it.

What tags should I use?

#lesmisrarepairsweek and/or #lesmisrarepairs

that was close
  • mom: whatcha doing?
  • me: writing
  • mom: I'm so proud of you! I can't believe that you aren't procrastinating all of your homework until the last day of winter break!
  • me: *sweats nervously*
  • me: *slides laptop to purgatory*
  • mom: I'll be right back with dinner
  • mom: *leaves*
  • me: thank the angels of the lord
  • me: *takes laptop out and starts typing again* and then dean took off cas's pants and admired his stature...
Dear closeted kaylor fans,

After the greatness that was Sunday night and seeing some of you peek out from hiding I decided to write this…. I was you. I was minding my business blogging and then one day kaylor hit me and I realized how real it is. I decided this was something I wanted to blog about so I started reblogging posts but then received mean messages and lost followers. That’s when I learned about how Taylor’s fans act towards the kaylor fandom. So I went into hiding and only liked posts instead of reblogging anything kaylor related. I also sent anon questions to remain anonymous. But then one day I was tired of hiding, so I unfollowed A LOT of blogs to clean up my dash which is now, for the most part, beautifully filled with kaylor and karlie. Then I made this side blog so I can express how I truly feel about kaylor. Creating this side blog was the BEST DECISION EVER. This kaylor fandom is more of a family and sticks up for each other, which is so refreshing and totally awesome! Plus we all get to die together when we get kaylor action. I also met people that I can talk about kaylor with, which I didn’t have before. So if any of you need someone to talk to, I’m here. If you just want someone to type to in ALL CAPS about kaylor, well that’s something I do on a daily basis. All the people behind the kaylor blogs are SUPER nice and welcoming, so don’t be afraid. And if you want to stay hidden, then that’s okay. There is nothing wrong with just observing. I just wanted to let yall know that I used to be a hidden kaylor shipper, but now I’m kaylor trash and proud of it.

TWD/Bethyl Meta: It Was All About Character Development, Except When It Wasn't...
Okay, obviously there are a lot of other (i.e. less shallow) things to be taken out of both Alone and The Grove, but since I’m just beyond obsessed with this stupid ship, I can’t help myself. I want to compare the conversation that Tyreese and Carol had about staying at the grove versus the conversation that Daryl and Beth had about remaining at the funeral parlor. I’ve seen some people draw a conclusion that the difference in those moments came from maturity level,  how people who’ve developed into well-rounded adults would handle a situation (Carol and Tyreese) versus people who are still developing and still finding out who they are (Daryl and Beth), but I really don’t think that’s the case. In this show we have people CONSTANTLY developing, constantly changing and I don’t think “maturity” has anything to do with it at all. Maturity is a misnomer in their world. There is no maturity once you’re no longer a child (as is shown through their development of Carl), there are only strengths and weaknesses. You handle situations the way you handle them, either you choose correctly and survive or you choose incorrectly and you live and sometimes those choices aren’t the choices that you’d THINK would lead to those conclusions. Each one of the characters goes through a tremendous amount of development in these episodes, but none of it is “maturing” not even for Beth who while we delved into her character more, is still very similar to the young woman who ran out of the prison. So yeah, I don’t think the differences in how those relationships were shown to us had anything to do with emotional or psychological maturity. I think the real difference in those relationships, despite how character focused and driven the episodes were, was actually in how they dressed the scenes and the tone that it set for the viewers. First, the mood of the scene, how it was set. Carol and Tyreese talk about it in the light of day, outside. There’s no intimacy implied other than an implied trust between them, not wanting to necessarily be around other people and open themselves up to the possibility of taking the girls to a place that’s not safe, a la what the prison turned out to be. It’s clearly a platonic, “this is the best place for us” conversation. Carol is standing. Tyreese is sitting. These people are friends, comrades with a common goal, stick together, survive and keep the kiddies alive.

Juxtapose that with the scenario with Daryl and Beth. Sitting together in the dark, him as close as he can possibly be at the table without sitting ON her. It’s night. There are candles lit. And in the moment she suggests writing a thank you note to the people whose supplies they’ve taken and house they lived it, it settles inside of him that he could spend his life here with this girl. They could make a life together at that house and he wants to stay with her. She’s the reason he wants to stay there, not whoever those people are, good or bad. If they’re bad, he’ll kill them and keep her safe. If they’re good, they’ll make it work. Either way, he wants to stay with her and she wonders why, has no idea that he’s made that decision, come to that conclusion because of her. And then he can’t verbalize it. Doesn’t want to put his feelings out on the table, because then she’d know what he was feeling, but he does it anyway with the longest, most lingering stare that says everything his inarticulate tongue won’t let him (and as c-sand wrote, it’s literally the bravest thing he’s ever done), because he wants her to understand what she means to him, even if he doesn’t quite understand it himself.

Both “couples” had their sanctuary ripped from them, one is separated, the other together and protecting a baby, but it’s clear from how the show decided to stage those scenes, the tone, the physical interactions and the dialogue that these are two very different relationships, one intended to be distinctly platonic, the other not.
